I think this direction makes a lot of sense for the series. Doesn't really make much sense in universe, unless it's some kind of far off future, but in terms of Ryukishi's past works this is a step that I was kind of hoping for and expecting. Rose Guns Days had a lot of combat scenarios, and Ryukishi only really leaned into sci-fi for a few specific things in Higurashi. It even gives him the opportunity to create a different kind of conspiracy mystery.

I simply don't know enough to decide if this really is vastly different from the previous works outside of the sci-fi stuff. My main hope in that regard is that the setting feels special in the same way Hinamizawa and Rokkenjima do.

Something interesting people might not know about storks, which is certainly intentional, is that storks don't truly have a cry. The stork's syrinx is almost vestigial, and, rather than crying, they communicate and make noise by clattering their beaks together. You can hear this here: https://www.hbw.com/ibc/species/52744/sounds. The main period of vocalization is during infancy, where they make crude, shrill cries with their useless organs. I expect some sort of duality here. The storks cry when they are born, natural and pristine still, free of pretense, but as they age they dispatch of this for the more efficient clattering, which we could compare to binary or Morse. Binary and Morse both have history in military and computer use as cryptography (literally pretense), which helps connect the animal to the idea of rampant propaganda in Ciconia's world, because ciphers are now used to fool everyone but the ingroup. There's a real potential thematic duality between when storks truly cry as babies and when they are known to "cry" as impure but resourceful adults.
Intertextuality and hermeneutics basically do connect to epistemology closely since exegesis and reliable narrators neither exist in reality, so it's interesting if Ryukishi's new philosophy is to depict epistemological interstices through blatantly duplicitous consensus (everyone outside the narrator) instead of questionable narration. The difference here could be if the illusion is endogenous (Umineko) or exogenous (Ciconia, maybe). And Umineko did already explore this on the side with the witch hunt consensus and episode 4's true method. It would be a sensible direction to expand on what he earlier had on the side and was still timorous about.

During the 07th Expansion Party held last year on April 1st, Ryukishi gave tidbits of info about Ciconia. One was that he was keeping the full title a secret because it gave too much away, and another was that the codename is "The next ____".

I should've figured that R07 became creatively bankrupt since a long time ago. It was already noticeable after BT's death or the garbage that was RGD. Who the fuck likes to read "epic" battles. I must probably have a garbage taste according to /jp/ but the type moon-esque kind of VN never attracted me in the slightest. It saddens me that Ryukishi is not going to write mysteries anymore.

It's easy to rewrite history in hindsight, uh?

You obviously weren't there for Umineko's Episode 2, which was so far removed from anything we had ever seen (and making the tea parties canon) that a lot of people said wtc was broken forever. The fuck is that magic, the fuck are those parallel dimensions, the fuck that tea party, the fuck that western coating. Nowadays Umineko is highly regarded, but back then the fanbase was torn apart. Obvious in hindsight, right?

Ryukishi has said numerous time that he wants to explore new things for each WTC instalment, and that's why he went from Higurashi (eastern horror) to Umineko (western meta-murder mystery). He wants to surprise readers most of all, and doesn't want to retread old grounds. Everyone sane expected something completely unexpected for WTC 5, if only because he has explicitly told us several times that he would write something unexpected.

Could have been a space opera WTC, could have been an Isekai WTC, but instead we got Strike Witches. Which is guess what, unexpected. Kind of the fucking point kiddo.

A linguistics major with two associate's (law and computer science) so vocal structures interest me, though it's also part of why I like literature. Umineko was clever in that its seagull cries had diegetic value but were only ever experienced nondiegetically (by the reader, like near the end of Hope or during certain scenes outside the repeated massacre). If you're still interested in Umineko's use of the seagull, watch Chekhov's The Seagull, which popularized its use in arts; especially similarly to Umineko is how the seagull's significance changes every act, sometimes an icon of hope, despair, death, freedom, peace, etc. Really good idea to watch that if you're interested in it.
I outlined its [the stork's] relation to avian creation myths in the last thread which >>20332971 supported with a link, though I'm still interested in the Greek Ciconians who killed Orpheus the mythic aesthete. Ryukishi likes using holophrasis and wordplay to permeate myriad varied themes pithily: Umineko=cat(box), seagull, the sea itself. All these things are important to the story and he uses yet a seemingly banal title to connect them so elegantly through wordplay, which is why I can see ciconia referring not only to the bird, but to the tribe of people who killed the artistic Orpheus and was coincidentally returned as a swan, another bird. The Ciconians were present as well in the Odyssey and Ovid's Metamorphoses, and from the profundity of Umineko's Dantean motif you can be sure Ryukishi has read his Roman poets and watched historical plays. I mean the Divine Comedy has Ovid himself appear, and draws from it throughout.

But no I'm not a biology major though I've taken university level courses on it.

There are already some glimpses of sinister secrets. The Shavid Yalda are possibly barrier troops, Suparna and Baibao probably have a bloody rivalry going on (and look at them, I wouldn't be surprised if the main girls were sisters), the Grave Mole have this whole amoral military research going on, and Squad 601's princess is smug as fuck.

This. After reading Higurashi (watched the anime first like a fool because I couldn't read English at the time) I was convinced that I'd NEVER like any other story more than Higurashi. I just couldn't imagine anything better, so I had zero interest in Umineko. After actually reading it, it blew me away.

Same with RGD. It's fantastic and I fucking love the characters, but my first impressions were pretty bad. The lack of Ryuukishi sprites and the wildly different tone of the story made me dislike it, but when I finally decided to give it a chance... Oh boy. I wish we got a sequel or something.

Higanbana is pretty good too. There is something about its atmosphere and short story format that feels really comfy. It reminds me of how elementary school really felt at the time, with the good AND the bad, as opposed to how the brain selectively remembers only the good bits. Also, tons of mindbroken lolis.

If someone dies in Higurashi they stay dead too. I mean, you get to see them again, but that's a different version of them. The one that got fucked stays fucked and haunts Rika's memory forever while she tries to pretend that only the "final" world is real and everything else may as well be a dream.

It's even more fucked up when you realize that she and Hanyuu may have been creating these worlds themselves out of the infinite sea of possibilities, making them real in order to survive. Which means that any tragedy that happened after the original world is their fault, including Satoko's nail torture at the hands of a psycho bitch.

Continuing from my earlier Astagatyah idea, which includes two specific groups: Garuda (Suparna) and Naga (Baibao). Of all the factions to be related, it ought to be the Chinese and Indian ones, as they've been philosophically symbiotic for millennia. Anyway, Baibao means treasure, and this is because, as counterparts to the Garuda (their description states they and the Indian/Garuda group are two halves of a whole) the Naga is often depicted adorned with treasure/wealth/kingly status. In certain Asian countries, Naga are known for their wealth, as well. In fact, the Hindu myth, Naga reside in Patala Loka, filled with treasures and riches as both their owners and guardians.
We can continue this. Suparna's description says Baibao is deified for propaganda purposes. The meretricious, manipulative snake is also a very common archetype in mythology, and Baibao is clearly the object of deceit. Also the Japanese equivalent of the Buddhist Naga is the Japanese dragon which is really a pirated Chinese dragon, and dragons are perhaps more important to the Chinese than anyone else. It makes sense they would be connected.

Let's look at Grave Mole now. I squared this in undeniable red! https://i.imgur.com/4QgECXo.png
It's an И, which is a Cyrillic character. Russian is a Cyrillic language. Note their name: Grave Mole. A mole often refers to a traitor in espionage tactics. It's someone who scouts information ahead by melding into the target group. This is something the Russians were famous for, especially around the cold war, and it's something still attributed overwhelmingly to them above all else in media, even now.

This is right atop Suparna's own symbol: https://i.imgur.com/hgL2Tcu.png. Compare its eyes, teeth, crown, and straddled flares at the sides to typical depictions of the Garuda in the following links:

But as a reader you know that it's not permanent because you catch on that it will reset. It still leaves an impact on the characters in their story, but it feels different from a character permanently dying and knowing they're not coming back and that you won't hear from them again for the rest of the story.
Umineko breaks it down to the point where the family and servants are treated as pieces on a gameboard, but it also cuts to how it affects Ange by being a survivor and hearing about what people have been saying about her family. Her family is already dead and won't be coming back, and what happens to them is treated like a game in the meta world so who lives or dies doesn't make a difference.
I'm not saying that this is a bad thing, it still works well and you get to see how the characters react differently to those that die or interact with those still alive, but I'm open to seeing Ciconia try something different. But if time loops stay because it's a staple of the series, I won't cry about it either. Either way, I'm curious to see how Ryukishi will play with death this time.

I see where you are coming from, Grave Mole girls are the only ones who don't seem to have clear afillation so far and Russia makes a lot of sense assuming each squad represents a distinct nation. But being Russian myself I can assure you that neither the font nor the letter you outlined give out an impression of cyrillic even in the slightest. Also it's absolutely not correct for cyrillic letters to be butchered like that. "Я" isn't just reverse "R", it's a completely different unrelated sound and they shouldn't substitute each other, same with your example of "V" and "И". I'm sure Ryukishi won't make this mistake.
Nonetheless I'll be pumped if GM actually turn out to be Russian, but they might happen to belong to anyone else, can as well be another Japanese squad.

That's fine. I understand if they simply mirrored the font, though the surrounding letters (there's a P right next to the N" is not reversed).

Russia would also add top tier literary, musical, and philosophical material to Ryukishi's pool so I'd like to not be mistaken.

So, supposing that this game happens in our world, just following some alternate history:

ACR -> Africa, including Egypt. Has a royalty, obviously.
COU -> China, India, possibly Pakistan and the middle east. Has an empire.
ABN -> No idea, but deeply religious. Possibly linked to Shavit Yalda, and thus Jewish, but maybe not. Possibly America or European/English state.
AOU -> Japan?

The interesting pattern is that the ACR and BAO are both confirmed having two teams. If Shavit Yalda is ABN too, which is the only other confirmed religious nation, then that mean ABN has two teams too, which implies Grave Mole is probably AOU. Japan having the military research center team is expected, given the associated trope of technological superpower.

I could be completely wrong of course.

i have noticed a pattern.
AOU = Warcats and Grave mole (i don't know what they have in common)
ACR = Squad 601 and CairoMemorialSquad (both african)
COU = Suparna and Baibao (idk they're next to each other in the map and share a good amount in common)
ABN = Thalaatha Saif and Shavit Yalda (both middle eastern, both "holy" and religious)
this also makes sense because in each two teams, one of them is a "kette" team.
and the order they're shown in the trailer supports my theory, even though i'm not quite sure that's relevant.

Right! Of course a propaganda group would be venerated as heroes before the public. It's important to remember propaganda has fundamental psychological roots so that it's something all sides do.
USSR actually excelled at this. The maternal country to which the people are inherently beholden to which bears their labor and fruit both, spiritual in form, and the paternal Stalin to which the people were externally beholden to, because federal wellbeing is always cooperative along all organizational strata, consituents to enterprises to governments, physical in form. The familial rhetoric was pushed with zeal, and eventually even the soldiers would be the objects and victims of propaganda.

One of the most exciting aspects of a cosmopolitan setting is doubled by 07th expansions' talenter composers. That the musical boon of the setting is every region getting its cultural/folk music represented, is then further tripled by them, because they understand music not only as music, but as expression and exhibition. Here this means we'll have a wide set of music from across the world, but also composed well, composed tastefully with the story, and intertwined with the rest of the soundtrack (leitmotif for example). I imagine we'll have one or two signature melodies composed in many different cultural musical forms. Mainly looking forward to Indian in this case.

I'd say even more, military propaganda is one of the pillars of peace and stability in Russia nowadays. According to the latest census army is the only state institute that retains high level of people's trust with all other governing institutes and president himself losing like crazy after the recent sequence of unpopular reforms. To keep populace minds off shit economic and all other fundamental problems government drags the country in all sorts of military conflicts, praising army's deeds and achievements, honouring research and development of military tech.

Not if you look at it geographically. Japan and Russia already had a pretty vicious war before the World Wars, the Russo-Japanese war. In an alternate history kind of world, or in the future, it isn't impossible to think that both unified into a unique compound.

These are on Cairo's badge(?). It could actually be a very important clue because, while you have the obvious sun god, it seems there are two or three birds atop the sun. Horus is an avian god of the sky and this iconography (birds in the sky) could refer to him, but it could also be Thoth, instead. Thoth is the avian Egyptian god of writing, which he created, and wisdom, but most interestingly of the moon, the lunar archetype a harbinger of illusion and uncertainty, and of magic, which has axiomatic importanceーI don't have to explain it. He is also always depicted with Ra, who represents the sun. Thoth is credited with writing the eponymous Book of Thoth; it outlines the highest Egyptian understanding and is considered sacred, and it served as a formative text for magic so that Hermeticism and occultism are based majorly upon it. Beyond magic, Thoth is known as the mediator of godly disagreements (meta battles?) and the archiver of history, keeping records of everything that passes including the judgments of those who have died (he wrote the Book of the Dead which is the ancient Egyptian guide to achieving an optimal afterlife and funeral performance, but it's mostly a book of spells).
Thoth was famously turned into Hermes by the Greeks, who represents many of the same things, and, most importantly, storytelling and negotiation. Hermes Trismegistus, one of the main figures in magic, is considered an equivalent to Hermes and Thoth specifically, and they've altogether had immense alchemical influence, being connected to the metal and planet Mercury.

I'll put it forth. I think, by humans, witches will be referred to as Gods in this game. There is no other term so intuitively connected to the highest metaphysical entities that everyone from any country would plausibly use, and witches in WTC are functionally identical to gods to those who exist below them. And that was even a major point of Featherine's comparison to normal witches and voyagers. Comparative religion finds archetypal gods throughout cultures as I've mentioned so that the same God can be worshipped by different people, with only the inessential name tag differing.

>>20335973
It actually is super exciting because this can go over so many incredible literary and mythological stories here will also looking into both macrosocial and microsocial ecosystems in an interesting way. Ryukishi has the potential to do something very very ambitious with this if he takes advantage of the breadth and depth of art and story these cultures have, and comparative anthropology and religion are like my favorite subjects ever which this is ideal for. It can be something really excellent. He's making Wittgenstein proud for flaming Frazer.

Okay another point of speculation: we know how much Ryukishi likes fucking with numbers, so what about numbers each squad has attached to them?
601 has already been talked.
Warcat - 0017th (the most curious one)
Grave Mole - 100th
Thalaatha - 0901st
Shavit - 012th
Cairo - 1st
Suparna - 301st
I don't see any number on Baibao card but there's an interesting bit Suparna's description: "they're more than strong enough to be serve as Baibao's other half". What can be another half of 301?

>>20337485
012 adds up to three, which, in Gematria (Kabbalahistic numerology), is signified by the third character gimel. It also refers to the conciliation of dialectics, teaching, blooming and youth, and leading. Gimels sephirotic place is the path between Keter and Tiferet (passing through Daath, the invisible process of godly to abstract). Tiferet is the sephirotic nexus: all other nodes are adjacent to it.
On sephira, three also refers to Binah, the divine feminine.
As well, Hebrew characters correspond to the tarot, and gimel (the path from crown to beauty) corresponds to the high priestess, major arcana II (but actually III because we start counting from 0, the fool). High priestess imagery is pretty blatantly superimposed atop Shavit, and, considering Ryukishi has read Goetia, it might be plausible to say he knows some extent of Kabbalah or gematria, which of course is the tome of the highest Hebrew metaphysics and magics, its contents so grand and lavish as to be ineffable for human minds.

Not him, but for mythology I'd suggest reading actual mythology.
Like, pick a clture, find their creation myth (or anything else you like) and start reading. Every time you see a new name - look it up and read texts about them.
As you learn more, read commentaries from experts on the subject. Don't forget the depictions.

It's not just about interests, of course, since cognitive ability does vary up to orders of magnitude between different people, so it'll be that plus interest and effort. I like literature and philosophy, and magical and religious systems are a philosophical razor, so I like them, too, except they double with iconographic literary artistry. It's all for the sake of universality, which is why I also study things like linguistics, computer sciences, and thereby automata, semantics, extents of biology.
>>20337770
I considered that, but it's likely deliberate that they were the only ones with zero numerical representation. Even Squad 601's is their name instead of their title, but it's all the numerology they decided to share this time. Baibao's name isn't numerical and its title is uniquely "imperial," which I imagine could make them either lack a number or have it be zero.
>>20337777
And yeah this is why I keep telling you guys to read. I say it all the time. If you want to have a full understanding of literature, you consume and degust and compare literature with opulence; religion with opulence; mythology with opulence; occultism with opulence. It really is all about willpower if you're competent which is why I like helping people since they stop being so unsure of themselves and learn valuable wisdoms, and half the value of wisdom is for it to be passed along.

Yeah it's fun, and if Baibao is truly zero or has no number then it suddenly becomes even more deliberate by Lambda. Actually, if you guys are right that Squad 601 belong to Lambda, then it would make sense they're the only ones whose title number prevents the total from adding up to 34, since it would be 27 and their vital 7 is in their name.

Truth be told, "dumb of ass" anon was none other than myself being a bit more blunt than usual about my lack of knowledge outside of a very specific domain. I know, shock and appall at this surprising and dramatic revelation, which isn't surprising or dramatic at all. I've definitely got that spark in my eyes—if I didn't then by now I've smashed wood and rocks together until I ignited it myself—but my brain's wired in a way that makes it a bit of an uphill battle, I suppose. In other words, I'm waging war against my nature as a dumbass. The good fight. There's a reason the sects now known as Gnosticism believed that the climb into the World of Ideas was so arduous. But, this isn't my blog so I'll refrain from turning it into more of a blog post.

I've compiled myself a reading list based on what I've seen you mention, going through archived threads while sick. Any additions you'd recommend?

>Invitation to a Beheading (Vladimir Nabokov)
>Ficciones (Jorge Luis Borges)
>Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius (Jorge Luis Borges)
>An Examination of The Work of Herbert Quain (Jorge Luis Borges)
>The Library of Babel (Jorge Luis Borges)
>Death and the Compass (Jorge Luis Borges)
>The Golden Bough (James George Frazer)
>Remarks on Frazer's Golden Bough (Ludwig Wittgenstein)
>Philosophical Investigations (Ludwig Wittgenstein)
>The World as Will and Representation (Arthur Schopenhauer)

What's important is that you put forth a great effort when a goal comes in sight, never meandering and never hesitating. True willpower is the strength to act when and how you must, decisively and efficiently, with a boundless wellspring of resolve.
Borges' Ficciones contains all the short stories you listed, so don't worry about them. You have them. And yeah, read Schopenhauer and his essays then Wittgenstein. Also>>20338025 is correct, but Pale Fire is his most immense work. It's his magnum opus and it's very difficult for most people, but its structure is special and it does metalepsis well, which Umineko also does, though I've never discussed it here. The artistry (prose and poetry) in it are also incredible.

The Umineko screenshot generator was the best. Did the Japanese have one of their own that still works?

I remember when EP7 was still untranslated and EP8 had just been released in Japan. The threads were full of fake screenshots, fake EP8 characters and fake spoilers in Japanese..

Pic related is important to this, and I somehow forgot that Ra is also depicted as an avian deity.
Here you see Ra's crown, a five sided shape with a five pronged flare, which only appears atop a sun (Ra is the god of the sun) covered by birds (Ra is an avian god) above a distinct pyramid with a crest pointing upward (Ra was worshipped with special pyramids). Let it be known that the modern Heliopolis (center of Ra worship) is currently in Cairo. And! The only other time the crown appears is with Cairo's very own partner, rife with feather (avian) imagery and too at the top of their "crest."

Here's something super interesting too! Warcats' supposed Bernkastel incarnation might just be a red herring! I've outlined in perfect red arcane similarities between Cairo's central figure and Bernkastel. She has cat ears, vertical feline pupils (nobody else's are nearly as oval), and her gloves are meant to look like cats paws. Also notice how similar her dress is to Bernkastel's! A cool bow mantled by a white, frilled plate. The dress is a dark color, and has a similar shape to Bernkastel's, her short black puff shoulders followed by white frilled sleeves substituted by the new character's identical puff shoulders and white cuffs. This might follow what I said in this second paragraph >>20337299. Egyptian gods, including Ra, often came to be as felines, as well, and so witches may truly be venerated as and dubbed gods in this story.

Also forgot to mention this might not invalidate Warcats' Bernkastel avatar but mean every participating witch controls multiple factions, or maybe Bern and Lambda are just both using four against each other.

That's witch Rika. She's appearing in EP9 to clear her name and beat up Berunkasteru.

Higurashi cameos confirmed. I can't wait to see Keiichi turned into a literal Magician of Words. He has the power to insert humiliation anon's walls of text into people's minds and convince them to kill themselves for being pathetic human condition sluts.

I wonder who his victim will be.

I wonder if people will finally get used to the original art after following WTC5 from the day of release. I can't imagine people shitting on it the moment a soulless version is released, especially if they've been exposed to the original during four whole years or whatever.

It's been scientifically proven that every PS3fag with an IQ over 120 eventually warms up to the old art and grows out of their shit taste, only to see new fans fall into the same old trap.

I like it too, it looks really good.

I just dislike how people immediately dismiss the original art without a second thought the moment they decide to read Higurashi or Umineko, even though it objectively provides a better and more charming experience free of poorly recreated facial expressions, cringy CGs, ridiculous perspectives, sterile backgrounds, etc. All because the fans encourage them to patch the game.

There is nothing really wrong with the PS3 art, but you have to admit that the intended experience is hurt a bit by the PS3 graphics. They make the novel slightly less immersive and a bit more awkward, especially those super clear and crispy backgrounds that look boring as hell and make it way too obvious when images are recycled for different locations (like the phones or chain locks).

>> No.20342387

>>20342338
I like the backgrounds. It feels much more detailed, like a lot of work was put into each and every one. Meanwhile the original backgrounds, while doubtlessly having their own aesthetic, feel more like a budgeting decision than anything.

The cgs are my main problem with the ps3 art. A la ugu creepy maria faces.

>> No.20342465

>>20342447
Also my main issue. I don't like most of the design changes (no battler tan) and I still love the originals far more than the ps3, but the CGS are what actually kill it for me. I hate the cut-in thing they do, the fact that more than half of the cgs have a wavey energy effect in the background... I could go on really, but there are a select few extremely strong cgs that most people already know of.

>> No.20342500

>>20342465
I like most of them as standalone art, but I don't like them randomly showing up in the novel.

It's the equivalent of the screen fading to black for a random encounter in some RPG and having the battle take place in its own pocket universe where the character's sprites are vastly different from the ones in the overworld. It requires a bit of abstraction, which isn't a problem at all, but it's definitely a change from the original CG-less Umineko experience.

>> No.20342517

>>20342465
Just tossing ideas around, but the thought came to me about editing manga panels to use in place of the ps3 cgs, or even editting the script to add more in various places. Hell, even thought of what it'd be like to create original cgs using ryukishi's original artstyle. Could even do something along the lines of a Berserk Redux and try to combine ps3, original, and pachinko, along the lines of what is most faithful to the text.
