What is the classification of the concept of Umineko's meta-battles/logic-fights? I've been scouring tvtropes in order to find examples of other works that have used this kind of narrative device but I haven't been able to find anything.

Is that a Joj---ah fuck it.
Anyway, I've read a shitload of detective novels and I've come across other genres that use meta, but they never seem to combine in the way they do in Umineko.
There's plenty armchair detective novels where the detective discusses the case with his fellows in a sort of meta way. But I've never seen anything like logic battles, even without the overly shounen anime style. It seems unique to Umineko.

Not a single one because it wouldn't have anything magical at all. A lot of fear, but it would mostly be because they're telling each other scary stories while being in darkness.

Probably a dog, to spoil the fact that the monsters who have been following the characters were just dogs that settled in and got provoked by the stench of a guy's pee, thinking he was trying to take their turf over.

Well that's also been said before, but I'm still hooting (hahaha) for a snowy setting. Mountain lodge or village in a snowstorm, unexplained footprints in the snow, owls hooting in the night, something like Stupefaction playing as you peer out of the window and through the heavy snow you could see a figure roaming through the extreme weather conditions. That's just atmosphere though.

Storywise I'd want paranoia. Characters are mostly strangers, not family like in Umineko. Less alien parasites and witches, more grounded, isolated paranoia between a large cast of characters who are there for different reasons. Deaths, disappearances and suspense. Slowly revealing the reason why the cast are all there.

I'm actually the one sparking conversation here.

>>17608444
Oh no, you misunderstand. Nothing cheesy like a revenge story spanning years and years. And nothing like U.N. Owen inviting supposedly random people to his mansion in the middle of nowhere. I just like the idea of a fresh approach to WTC, where nobody really knows each other, so there's no established links between the various characters and they have to get to know each other from the start. I was thinking more like
>character went for a ski trip and got the wrong place
>frustrated out-of-work writer looking for peace and quiet in the snowy mountains for inspiration
>lost traveler
>survivalist
>owl fanatic/bird-spotter

No motives at the start. But murders/disappearances do start to occur and you only have the information presented to you from this fresh cast of unrelated characters to find out any motive.

>> No.17608484

>>17608479
I'd like to read something like that. My favourite arc in Higurashi was Onikakushi, and it was mostly because of all the paranoia. Being against everyone is always scary, and if you add that little touch "I don't know what the fuck is going on", it's perfect.

Even through I watched the anime, that scene in the game where Keiichi's father told him that Rena came to visit, and he figured out that she was just outside of his room, possibly listening to everything, the way it was said was bone-chilling.

>> No.17608517

>>17608444
Well bugger, it seems my entire reply to you was deleted because I quoted a certain someone else as well.
If you didn't see it, my main point wasn't about years-spanning revenge, I just want a cast of unrelated people with no real connection or motives. And the deaths only start afterwards, so you need to piece together the evidence presented, and not rely on past encounters etc.

>>17608484
Paranoia is where WTC thrives, I feel. Higurashi nailed it. Umineko had its moments but the meta-fights, cool as they were, took away from the original suspense and paranoia of being stuck on an island with a possible 19th person hiding somewhere.
That's why I'd like to see more paranoia-focused stuff in WTC5, which I think could benefit from a cast that has no ties or affiliations to one another.

>> No.17608537

>>17608517
Might work if they have no relations to each others. I did like Dangan Ronpa for that reason, people had very few connections with each others, and despite them trying to trust each others, paranoia was still a thing.

Umineko did a great job at presenting the characters, and the fact that they were family changed things a bit. Felt more heartbreaking to think they could be behind the killing. The whole meta plot was completely retarded and ruined the tension, though.
And yes, Higurashi nailed it. The anime heavily supported the "it's magical" side, but the original novel did a fine job of trying to present it as logical, even when really weird stuff happened. Like Rena just standing in the rain, the whispers, the sudden eyes changing, and the fact that the girls knew things. It was really good.
That's a bit funny, I really hoped for something magical the entire time, but when I got the explanation, I was disappointed. Building a mystery is always nice, but sometimes the answer isn't as good as you hoped.

My mystery senses are tingling now, I've been dreaming up a snow-set mystery for a while now but I've kept it quiet. I might work it out a bit more and post it soonish. I've felt a pang of guilt for not doing a mystery for the 10th anniversary back in August. The threads seemed too dead at that point anyway. Anyway, if there's still people out there who enjoyed my mysteries I could post it somewhere this week. And even if not I'll post it anyway just for my own amusement.

I remember writing a few mysteries for Umineko (between two posts describing how much I like Bernkastel's butt).
But I find the snow setting a bit complicated to use. You would need to make it unique, otherwise it'll feel like a retexture of the isolated island.

>> No.17608630

Snow footprints are a staple of the genre. I did one, fuck, must be a year ago now, with Battler dying in the middle of a snow field, with only his footprints leading up to his body. People came up with some amazing theories. It's more than the isolated island theme, it's about creating a scenario where a murder has happened, yet the culprit "couldn't possibly" have gotten away without leaving footprints, and that fascinates me.

All this snowy mountain lodge, owl stuff reminds me of Rim of the Pit which is a fantastic novel with more or less the same setting, but with a really disappointing solution, for the footprints in general. The other mysteries in the novel are great, but the footprints part made me roll my eyes, because it's literally the first thing you think of.

I dunno, I'm mostly interested in information play. Stuff like Tanako's death in Higurashi, for example. When you're given informations that you suppose is correct, or when the survivors are divided between two groups and find informations that reveal things to you, the player, but you know that they have to survive and meet to figure the thing out. Fucking with the player and the characters, to make it short. Probably extremely difficult.

Another thing that the anime butchered. In the game, they often mention how impossible Takano's death is, while in the anime, they just accept it. That got me coming up with a wrong theory, that there was a doppelganger.

To continue, while playing with informations and hints are fun, there's always the risk of the player figuring out things way too quickly and becoming annoyed with the characters.
I remember being annoyed by both Battler from Umineko and Naegi from Danganronpa when they failed to understand basic stuff. Same with the Ace Attorney games, sometimes you figure out stuff that's pretty simple, but the game's design forces you to get the answer wrong or to find a roundabound way to explain it.

That reminds me of Zack from Satsuriku no tenshi. I'm been quite obsessed about him lately. It's from a RPG horror game, I like it alot. Not too spooky, short and satisfying (though a little fucked up). The two main characters are soooo cute together even if the story is not that great is worth the try.

You are asking if he's calling you trash. Now there are two possible answers:

You are a 3D girl
Conclusion: Anon calls you trash.

Case 2:
Anon calls 3D girls trash
You are not a 3D girl
Conclusion: Anon does not call you trash.

So here's a little cute mystery I think that will move your little grey cells a bit and you might even learn something new in the process! There's a bit of fluff in this, so please bear with me.

Battler decided that he wanted to show Maria a magic trick, so he had everything prepared before coming to the island. On the island while the cousins were talking among themselves battler brought up the idea that he knows how to turn water in to magic water. Naturally maria wanted to see Battlers magic, so battler gave a nod to Shannon and Shanon left the room.
After a few minutes Shanon returned.
"Now, Maria, let me show you my magic water. Shannon, could I have that glass of water please?"
Shannon slowly passed it to Battler.
"Now maria, as you can see this normal water right?" Battler showed the glass to maria, and even sloshed it around for a bit "It moves fairly normally, so you know that there's nothing wrong with it right?"
Maria nodded enthusiastically.
Battler set it down on the table and put his hand over the glass closing his eyes. And after a few seconds the liquid turned dark blue instantly.
Needless to say, that maria was overjoyed and did not stop talking about it for the rest of the day.

Now my friends, how did Battler do it?

Easy, there exists certain chemical reactions that can change the color of the water.

The artist has the right to take some liberties with their designs so long as they don't directly conflict with what the author has already established. While the older females are generally accepted to be well-endowed in all works, younger looking characters like Maria, Dlanor, Erika, Bern, and Lambda have all been portrayed with varying figures by different artists, since the original work didn't make their proportions explicitly clear.

Episode 8's manga made Erika and Bernkastel appear significantly curvier than they did in any of the other ones, with the possible exception Erika's wedding appearance in Episode 6's manga. On the other hand, Lambda was given a slightly smaller chest than before, while Maria and Dlanor remained presumably flat since they are usually depicted as such.

I'm not against making a character more appealing for other readers as long as it's not insulting, gross or completely different from the appearance already dictated.

You mean in the different mangas? Not at all, I enjoyed all of them being Soichirou, Aki Taka and Suzuki Jirou my favorites ones. I've some problems with the overly misproportioned bodies of the Steam version though, but nothing I can't ignore. The only thing I'm mad about is the new look of the uncles and Ronove, but Battler looks awesome so is forgettable. I mean, even if they look different they are still the same characters we love.

I agree, the Steam version kinda oversexualized the females while making some of the males look downright ugly. But it's not such a big deal in the end.

Personally, the only time I feel the manga may have taken the fanservice a bit too far was with the cover illustration for the first volume of Episode 8 (the one with Ange’s upskirt). It wasn't the first time Ange’s rear was unnecessarily focused on, with prior Episodes frequently sneaking in a bunch of low-angle shots of her from behind, but it was never done to such an extent nor was it ever so blatant. Plus it’s one thing to do something like that in the manga itself, but going so far as to put it on the front cover of the first volume is way more questionable. Now the first impression readers are going to get isn’t going to be “Oh boy, it’s time to start the final Episode” but instead “Why isn't Ange wearing any underwear”.

I admire Ryukishi's work on Umineko and how he incorporated stands of philosophy and metaphysics into a deconstuction of the mystery genre while including shounen battle themes.

Umineko is clever when it comes to making fun of mysteries, but if you remove that, there's almost nothing.
Through I do like how every Ushiromiya siblings get his own turn in the spotlight. That part was clever, but Higurashi did it too.

>if you remove that, there's almost nothing.
I don't agree, it has a message, the mystery itself is almost secondary. Still, you can't deny it was a funny entertaining ride, no?

>> No.17628939

>>17628935
It's a ride that's entertaining, but leaves an empty, bitter taste.
It's like watching a show you really like, but once it's over, you think about it and you figure out it was done just to spite people who complained about how predictable shows are, see what I mean?

I really preferred Higurashi, it was more straightforward. Umineko gave me the impression it was wrote specifically to cater to mysteries novel wankers, with complete disregard (even scorn) toward everyone else.

>> No.17628960

>>17628939
It didn't give me that impression at all, but it's your opinion. I just stay with what I enjoyed about a series and don't mind the rest. I liked the ending even if it was a little sad. I also love higu a lot, even more than umi. Gnight

The deconstruction of the social construct known as closed room murders stands no chance against an archetypical depiction of Jungian origin, be it as it opposes Freud's interpretation of a closed room.

Is that pretentious enough for you?

You're just stringing along random words. If that's what you thought I was doing in my original post you're mistaken.
It's fine if you just liked Umineko for the ride, but there's no need to criticize me for looking into it on a deeper level. I wasn't trying to be pretentious, I was just sharing my thoughts on Umineko as a work of literature.

If you lack the intelligence to understand a basic post, that's your problem.
Real fans who have more than 80 IQ will have no problems understanding how brilliant Ryukishi007's deconstruction of the mysteries novels is, as well as his astute and genius depiction of archetypes.
*sigh* But I suppose it's like asking a monkey to write The King Lear, eh?

>> No.17629034 [DELETED] 

>>17629014
I see what you're doing.
In all honesty, I never intended to pretend to be more intellectual or whatever it is you're implying.

Just expressing my thoughts on how I find Umineko is a real, unique work that grabs inspiration from the genre itself, as well as philosophy and metaphysical questions. Something very rarely found in your average VN, anime, manga, LN or whatever.

I have no idea why I've sparked this antagonism from you. You can either agree, or far more interestingly, disagree and come up with with own views and opinions. Instead you're playing some kind of pretentious character which you seem to think is what I'm doing.

Finally the ape starts to understand how wonderful Rykishi0007 is. What a genius, clearly. His work is flawless and perfect.

>> No.17629056 [DELETED] 

>>17629036
Obviously it's not perfect, as I've stated before. I just like what Ryukishi did with Umineko, which other works haven't done as of yet. It was original, and a great blend of genres and ideas.
I'm getting tired of waiting for actual opinions and views from you. Am I going to get any, or are you just going to play sarcastic until I go to bed?

Obviously, the genius of Ryushi008 escapes you, as you lack the brain capacity to appreciate his works. Good thing real fans™ like me follow in his footsteps.

Looking back at the anime OP, there's actually a lot of focus on Shannon. Breaking the mirrror with tears in her eyes, her date with George and stuff. Going by the direction of the anime it doesn't look like Ryu-chan gave them any information about the culprit so it seems to be a coincidence, but she's really the character with the most screen time of anyone in the OP
