"Evening Cicada, commonly known as the higurashi cicada, is one insect that I may be able to abide. Its song is so mournful, so filled with sad longing...It's really quite beautiful. Even so, I have no desire to touch one! Mercy, no! How repulsive! I shudder at the very thought of it!"
In Wild World
"The evening cicada's cry can be heard in the morning and at night, typically. Strangely enough, if the weather is poor, they cry during the day, as well! I suppose they only remain active in cool weather, wot? Fickle little beasts. Perhaps they could do us all a favor and move to some frozen land, hoo!"
In City Folk
"Evening cicadas got their name from their tendency to start crying once it starts getting dark out. Interestingly enough, these creatures apparently will also cry on an overcast day if it gets dark enough. Don't be fooled by their lovely voices, however. They are quite disgusting to gaze upon..."
It can be found in the middle terrace on the tree opposite the ramp that connects to the lowest terrace, sharing the tree with the Walker Cicada.
In New Leaf
After donating an Evening Cicada to the museum, a sign will display a description of this insect that says this:
"Evening cicadas cry when it's dark out, regardless of what time of day it actually is.People tend to think it's the end of summer when they hear the cry of evening cicadas. However, this species of cicada starts crying at the end of the rainy season, which generally falls in July."
After the player has caught an Evening Cicada for the first time, they can find information about it in the bug tab of their encyclopedia.
| ''They mark the start of summer."|

The Tanna japonensis (also known as evening cicada) is a common insect found in Japan, along with other cicadas. When the sun sets, they begin to chirp. It has a turquoise body and transparent wings and abdomen. The sound it makes is enjoyed by the Japanese, which they describe the sound as "kanakana", which gives it this name in some areas of Japan. A real-life video of an tanna japonensis singing can be found here.
