Higurashi is one the anime that I wished I know that it was that "multiple storyline" in 1 season concept.
I watched another higurashi while gaming (since i can understand japanese a bit).
I got the game (random humble bundle purchase) but havent spent time to read through them.
As for me, I dont have anything anime finished recently except Im watching 2nd Season for Phi Brain Kami Puzzle (cant remember the exact name) that basically another yugioh type shounen anime that about battle each other with puzzle. Aside from feeling mediocre throughout the series, I really cant recommend this since the game and they way they solve it arent interesting. On the 2nd season, I think it focused way more on the development of the character and interaction in between them. I would rather recommend you guys to watch gambling or survival game anime instead.
