So which stake is the best?

>> No.19911967

It was really cool

It loses lots but not all not essential narrative storytelling, but it works really fine as a 3 hours long action packed stage play adaptation.

Apparently this one is the least faithful of the three thus far, and if that's the worst they can do as a theatrical interpretation, it really doesn't surprises me just how well Season 2 and 3 were received in Japan.

So a couple weeks I was talking about fun times with a friend of mine playing Umineko blind with him for the first time.

I don't know, he hasn't exactly explained what his plan was. I think that he thought his weird theories were right about EP1 stuff even though I kept telling him to think about it, so I guess he just decided to look stuff up since he thought he was right and I was leading him astray.

You mean like, confusing Purgatorio Battler and piece Battler? That's not my problem, my problem is why Purgatorio Battler denies magic.
Does it just not matter? Is all of Purgatorio kind of metaphorical and a tool of the narrative to explain the mystery, so there doesn't need to be an explanation of this?

>> No.19914199

It's an interesting concept to explore. Perhaps there is some sort of afterlife for the human consciousness where concepts such as 'magic' actually exists. All sorts of wild things are possible, just like what is shown in Purgatorio. But just because such a thing is possible in that world, doesn't mean it has any sort of effect on the corporeal world.
Isn't Battler specifically denying that a witch exists and used magic to kill his family in the real world?

Usually a rook's usefulness depends on the placement of your other pieces. Rooks would be at a disadvantage I think because it would be harder, or at the least more time consuming, to have other pieces in place to defend them. Without that, the rooks will probably have only one quick good move before being sacrificed.

Anonymous, it's okay to be lazy. If you were, at any given time, allowed to choose how you want to be, you would choose to be lazy. There's nothing wrong with that. But the important thing is knowing when you shouldn't be lazy; when you form a promise with someone, don't do it lightly. Consider what they're asking; consider how you personally feel. And most importantly, consider the impact if you break it, for that person, and yourself.

Not saying the adults are blameless - but Yasu set up an incredibly, needlessly dangerous situation. To try and claim she’s innocent because she didn’t kill anyone directly is absurd. Literally playing with peoples lives

>> No.19922506

Yes it would. Attempted murder, illegal possession of firearm, illegal possession of explosive ordinance, and conspiracy to commit slaughter.

Plus I’m sure Yasu hasn’t verified that gold with the Japanese IRA, so she probably owes like fifteen years of back tax on it

>> No.19922507

I can't wait for EP9, Trial of the Golden Witch, to determine whether Yasu is guilty or not guilty of murder.

>> No.19922518

I don’t think she’s guilty of murder, but reckless endangerment, absolutely.

And also guilty of conspiracy to commit murder, since even though she never acted out her edgy fanfictions, she sure took the steps to prepare to carry them out

>> No.19922594

She never attempted murder and I doubt she'd get any charges for the guns seeing as how she just inherited them and never used them. As far as explosives go, she only inherited the island that they happened to be stashed in. Same situation with the gold, at best you have a situation where she owned it for two years but she was underage and could easily claim she thought the taxes were already paid on it. I'll give you conspiracy to commit murder though.

>> No.19922598

And gun law in Japan is insane. A guy in 1978 had a pistol found in one of the cars in his convoy, and got seven years for that alone.

You CAN own a (one) hunting rifle - if you renew the license every year, prove you can shoot it, and prove you’re mentally sound(kek).

Assuming Yasu did that - and let’s be real she totally didn’t - there’s still seven of them that she would have no legal recourse to own

And since the Winchesters are sawed off - they’re NOT hunting rifles anyways, they’re illegally modified, so Yasu would get jail time for the one Winchester she would have otherwise been allowed to own assuming she submitted to the yearly check and psychiatric evaluation(again, kek)

So in total, for owning the sawed off guns alone we’re looking at like 56 years of jail time, to say nothing of the bomb or gold, or conspiracy to commit murder

Erika was a good villain. A real, successfully executed love-to-hate cocky shitheel. Watching her squirm and get broken down feels great, and the shit she pulls off for anti-fantasy arguments is hilarious.

Infodump anon here.

I've uploaded on YT the complete first Rose Guns Days Stage Play (which of course, covers Season 1). It was available to be watched for a limited time during an event on NicoNico, so this quality is as great as we will get unless there's a BD or DVD release one day (hopefully, as they did a really nice job here).

I don't have time to sub, and thus I've opened public contributions for the video, regardless of that, enjoy:


As for other updates:
Some months ago, my old HD got screwed and I've lost the almost finished translation for the first volume of Umineko Purple Forgery mango and my Haworthia booklet halfway through done translation (meaning I didn't touch the audio content for it until then).

Therefore, as much as it frustrates me to the point of me wanting to drop my already slowed down fan translation for them, if anyone still has both RAWs and cleaned pages for the Purple Logic manga, as I lurked and read about some weeks ago, I would very much appreciate a link for them, if possible.

Haworthia is very easy to find on Nyaa still, so don't worry about that one, it's easily accessible still.

Kyrie did everything wrong! Her man cheats on her even in non-canon extra tips.

She thinks it wouldn't have been discovered that she'd killed Asumu had it come to it? What a moroooon. The police are amazing, after all. Rudolf definitely wouldn't have stuck with her after that. Then she made the man she loved assist her in killing his whole family for money with the intention of finishing her actual birth son if it came to it. And on that front, she couldn't even kill people right! Maybe she should have used her crybaby NTR victim math to not fucking miss from a couple feet away. What a loser and a failure. Spin the chessboard around? Maybe she should spin that gun around and blow her own brains out. Oh wait, she'd probably miss that shot, too. Deceptive, evil, manipulative, yet still INCOMPETENT.

I'm pretty sure you would want to advance toward the middle with all of your pieces (I'd wager offensive early game play with queen and rooks would be pretty viable here cause you should realistically never be caught with that much open space to work with, and it ought to allow you to delay your opponents advance substantially), because anything else would be stretching yourself out too thin, allowing your opponent to isolate individual pieces.
With black and white meeting in the center of the board, you'd be left with a ton of room to maneuver your major pieces in the back to try and crack open your opponents position tactically, as they try to do the same to you. In that situation rooks would be stronger for sure, mainly you'd have to be especially careful not to let them get through to your own back row, but it shouldn't be game-breaking.

Before I'd be willing to step into a reality that could literally be anything I'd want to gather at least some intel on how to do basic survival shit and construction, and maybe learn about mechanics and basic physics.

Other than that, if the people you care about are philosophical zombies, and you know that to be the case, then any attachment you have to them is just a bug caused by your biological programming.

read what MG's retranslated so far, then read the old translation of the last 2 chapters. or wait until later this year when they're gonna finish the retranslation, apparently.
but i think that since the steam sales on the series has dropped off of a cliff, MG is done with putting in effort into actually retranslating the rest of the series, they'll probably just do a quick edit job of the remaining chapters and release that instead. you're probably safe just reading the old versions of those because i'd bet there's not gonna be much of an improvement other than typo fixes.

>> No.19962612

Bern is Yasu's inner desire for a miracle where everything gets fixed, Battler remembers the pony and all the shit - she's also Ange's desire for a miracle where the entire thing was just a bad dream and never happened; ultimately for both, she's also a reminder that a miracle never happen

Likewise Lambda is the personification of Yasu's 'certain' fate of Rokkenjima '86, and thus - Beatrice's 'patron witch'; likewise, she takes up that role when Tohya figures out the truth, but keeps denying it by separating himself from Battler - Battler is 'certainly' responsible for Yasu's loss of hope and the events this caused

For the love of me I can't figure out what is Featherine supposed to represent, and why does she have Ikuko's face - it can't be just how she's 'spectating' Tohya's struggle, because she's actively partaking in the forgeries as well

>> No.19962710

holy shit Klashikari is still alive
One thing he missed imo is that Higurashi already has a translation and a publisher in the West, and therefore would not cost as much in that area (though it would still leave 11-13 arcs of varying length to be translated - I don't know how to count two Miotsukushis and Kotohogushi, since they overlap); the biggest financial hurdle would be the voice acting I think, those contracts are fucked, with marketing in second and then the translation

also it's so damn frustrating that MangaGamer's release uses the same fucking subtitle, making it hard to differentiate between the two - you'd think they'd cooperate to combine the two identically named properties, but no

>> No.19962839

MG doesn't do any console game, and I don't think they would be fine in selling their translation just like that, since it would be like selling their assets to a competitor (a lot of people would rather have VN on the switch instead of PC), hence why I can't see any publisher to be able to convince MG to sell their translation, especially they aren't even done with their higurashi hou.

The issue with a work like Umineko is that what’s symbolic and what’s painstakingly literal is hard to suss out

>> No.19963492

but you fall in a very similar trap of 'Umineko and Higurashi share a universe' - nowhere is it stated that Higurashi's Frederika Bernkastel = Umineko's Bernkastel, and any homages can be seen as easter eggs (especially since there are like, three of them?)

also this isn't denying magic at all - hell, the opposite, as pretty much all magical characters come from Sayo or Tohya requiring them to be stand-ins for something

but that's what I mean, they both won't just give up their assets (even though they are not competitors, their markets are different as you noticed in your post), but at the same time, are stuck in a very awkward situation of selling two similar but different products under the same name - and neither can do much about it
maybe I'm just idealistic to think the best course of action would be to cooperate on that single project and split earnings - MG would be able to safely enter and assess the Switch (and if the rumors are true, PS4) market, and Entergram would get royalties from the Steam releases and the English-speaking market - and Higurashi is a very big title when it comes to VNs

that's definitely a misdirection trick from R07, ??? Tea Parties are supposed to be... maybe not outright breaking the fourth wall, but lodged firmly inside it

There's literally nothing stated that Bern & Lambda were part of Yasu imaginary. Ryukishi stated that Higurashi and Umineko did connect to each other even if they take places in different fragment.

Saikoroshi stated how
Bernkastel was named and how she was born, let alone the fact that Ryukishi said that Bern was embodiment of all negative emotion which Rika being turtored through time loops. Negative emotions didn't fit with Frederica Bernkastel in Higurashi at all if you didn't take what she end up to be in Umineko into consideration. Even just by Umineko, Bern said that she was once human who was trapped in gameboard before. Lambda clearly confirm it even further. Bernkastel's Letter & Lambdadelta's Diary also didn't make any sense otherwise.

Bern also have non-meta conversation scene with Ikuko and even saying that they're going to appear in next WTC to

>> No.19963771

Bern was the embodiment of negative emotional of Rika not straight up Rika or Frederica herself but that doesn't mean she didn't connect with them. Also Umineko's Bern is like 1000 years older than Higurashi one so obviously there are something changed. Even without that into consideration. It heavily implied that she just playing villain for the sake of concluded Ange's tale. She even still have her innocent voice in some scene of ep. 8

I don't understand the irrationality when it comes to Frederica Bernkastel. Why would Bernkastel in Umineko be a different Bernkastel from Higurashi? They're both games in the 'When They Cry' series, it makes no sense to not have them be the same person.

>> No.19967926

okay, I concede for now, seems like I need to reread Saikoroshi carefully - I'm not a fan of the 'death of the author' concept, so I'll respect what he says

it's because Rika is a... maybe not pure cinnamon roll, but definitely a much better person than Umineko's Bern - and while Frederika isn't Rika (which passes over people's heads a lot, same with pieces and meta-characters in Umineko, hence why your usual goat makes that mistake), she also is not the same kind of a cunt as the Bern from Chiru - but see the posts I replied to above for the rebuttal to that
In my case, it's also a bit of a denial of Higu and Umi having a shared universe despite Ep4 basically tossing that idea out the window


>> No.19968467

IIRC, Bernkanstel is the direct result of Rika's purging of past memory(?)/previous fragment experiences. Bernkastel is made of all the Rikas that were denied a happy ending, the ones that were sacrificed. Thus she's bitter as all fuck and wants to hurt other people to push that pain away. Featherine was the GM of Higurashi iirc, who caused the 'looping story'/snake eating its own tail error and abandoned the game and thus Rika to her fate in creating Bern as she is now, hence the "you taught me how to eat meat" comment in ep7(?)
