I just read the scene people were memeing about Ryukishi not understanding gays have sex but it never came off that way at all. All i got from it was that Jayden was reluctant to fuck Meow if he found out that her body was a boy's one.

I am different to 22223678, but at first time play I also felt Saku was better than Ciconia (except i was only at credit on ciconia, so its bit unfair at that point).
But still, "last not" had very VERY powerful new character, and gives great extra-ending to umineko, even through it was short.

But I have to say Ciconia after reading "16/16" is like, volcanic. I can't stop thinking about Ciconia. Its both great.

its hard to really say how i feel about ciconia, ryukishis writing is so inconsistent. umineko 5+6 were so bad i came close to dropping it, 7 was incredible, and then 8 was complete dogshit until the manga rewrite which ended up being some of the best shit hes ever written (confession chapters are utter kino).

Why would he not care about his actual sex? He refers to his son constantly as a boy, and would have the opportunity to have confirmed his sex. And since we know that Miyao is the default personality given that it's the only one we see his father recognize, there's no reason to assume that Miyao has had an opposite-gender personality as his default for his entire life.

There is no "default personality", they were born like that. Miyao is fronting most of the time because he's the stronger, more outspoken personality and they decided to set it up that way, but that has nothing to do with their body. They were born at the same time.

They could still be male, but everything is pointing to the opposite. Miyao's complexes, Meow's comments about it that all but confirm it, and their girly shape itself. I think the dad obviously knows but considers him a son because he's insistent on being treated like a guy.

It's a faction where biological sex doesn't mean much, socially speaking. And Toujirou must be well aware of his kid's DID, considering his P3 level is through the roof. If he's always acting like Miyao and Meow herself has to imitate Miyao to avoid being exposed as weirdo, it's only natural that his dad considers him a guy.

Hell, if he's aware of the DID, the name "Miyao" refers strictly to the personality. The body itself only has a name in the official registers, but they really are two people.

He's a congenital. He's had Meow by his side since they can remember. Even if they are a girl, Miyao could just be more willing to live life, while Meow prefers to spend most of the time observing or sleeping instead of dealing with life. She let him handle most things and eventually people started recognizing them as a guy because that's what Miyao claims and that's how he acts. And by that point, it's hard to let Meow live her own life without having to tell everybody about their condition, or looking like Miyao just became a total faggot. It's not like anyone could instantly know, they look androgynous as hell.

Miyao being in charge has nothing to do with their real gender, because it's not like Meow was born later on as a result of some trauma. It's a congenital trait. She was always there, even before giving herself a distinct name. Therefore, they could be either gender, who knows which.

Meow explicitly said at one point that a gender reveal would be problematic for Miyao, and also fuck up their established social life, and that she doesn't have a body that would displease Jayden. It's pretty clear.

That's not Ryu's opinion. It's just a fucking joke about how men are generally considered to be obsessed with sex while women are more into your attitude and confidence. Not necessarily true, but it's a character speaking, not the author.

And I think she actually meant that having the same body parts as your partner would make you less excited about the visual part of sex, since you both have the same thing and it's not a mysterious pussy/dick of the opposite gender. So you'd think less about the physical aspect of it.

Now that I'm reading that excerpt from the book of Revelation is present in the Kizuna error screen, I finally realized that the fucking feathers are clear angelic references. It's obvious in retrospect, I don't know why I never made the connection.

Are Gauntlet Knights supposed to be the Angels of the book of Revelation? Or endowed by the Angels?

When God expelled Adam and Eve from paradise, He used His holy sword of fire to slice the bottom part of their torso, thus creating the butt. After that day, they were forced to survive in the human world and eat unholy food full of impurities that they had to shit out of their anuses.

The butt crack is a mark of shame that has been passed down from generation to generation. That's what "child of man" means. Featherine is making fun of Ange because she's a child of man and therefore her butt is split in two. Witches do not have a butt crack or an asshole, because they are not lowly humans.

"Ephraim sauntered, wiggling his buttock-augmentation. Life couldn't get any better. This, he knew, was due to an incontrovertible fact:

Naked asses are the final equalizer. Everyone's got an ass and, if honestly appraised, they all look ridiculous.

Imagine Saddam naked, awkwardly bending for the soap. Or Osama squatting in a humid cave. Don't seem so threatening now do they?

It's so weird to see a black character that isn't an uncivilized "African American" with low IQ.

It really makes you remembers that races are all very similar, even though they do have physical and intellectual differences as a whole, and it's their circumstances that give them a bad reputation. Currently, nigs are only living in third world African shitholes or in poor American neighborhoods, raised in a hood culture that rewards being a brute. Only nigs born from middle-class immigrants in a first world country ever become respectable human beings like everyone else.

>Rethabile.. is just kind of annoying I guess. I don't like her pride.
Who wouldn't be proud in her situation? She's part of the royal family in a country with a massive cult of personality, North Korea style. She officially does not poop like commoners do. She doesn't even have an anus. Nobody in her family does. This is taught in schools all across Africa and everyone believes it.

That puts her above the foolish masses as a human being, since she lacks the one thing that prevents pride and dignity from being permanent. Even if it's all fake, she has more than enough reason to be prideful.

The point is, it makes so little sense, and is literally contradicted by the narrative and other characters, that it is difficult to take it seriously. Maybe Ryukishi is making a point that some of the nations have become thoroughly brainwashed by PC culture.

It could really be that Ryukishi drank the kool-aid, but this is the most embarrassing praise of homosexuality I heave ever read if that's the case. Like, genuinely retarded. Ryukishi doesn't do retarded, usually.

I mean, Naima is most likely taking a shit as she speaks, since she's a talented PP and can multitask easily. Pooping doesn't affect one's ability to think, so she can look (it's an avatar) normal in the chat room while saying one line (she's just thinking it and sending the brain signals as speech), even when she's in the middle of it and her real mouth is busy huffing and grunting.

And I bet Chloe is masturbating whenever she interacts with her friends in VR because she finds it lewd. But sometimes perverted thoughts enter her mind while she's about to cum and she accidentally says them in the VR instead of keeping them in her brain.

Saku also confirms that Bern and Lambda will be in ciconia. At the end, when everyone is leaving for Featherine's tea party, Bern & Lambda stop when they sense that "something is about to cry".
They wonder what kind of roles they will have this time, perhaps villains on the same side or a pair who hate each other.

Every Frenchman can probably fill the blanks.

Ryukishi went to Epitanime 2012? 2013? An anime French school convention. Even though it is a relatively small Parisian convention, it was still largely important at the time, with some connections to Japanese creators. An alumni IIRC, but I've forgotten the particular half a decade ago when I graduated.

He took some pictures of the street in the front of the school, and the school itself. Which were used by RGD. Half of the background of RGD are of Paris (probably from that particular trip), and half of those are of my school.

Was utterly bizarre when I read RGD two years later.

I really like how gauntlets are ridiculously bulkly and oversized. It really shows how much technology is packed in there.

It also makes the image of a character flying with it more impressive, because they are defying gravity and nothing makes it more clear than the fact that they can move around with a big fucking thing on their arms.

Phase 4 will end with half of the gauntlet knights surviving the apocalypse in a decimated world. And they won't be able to understand each other again because the internet has broken down, so no Kizuna for them.

Remember how many times the Tower of Babel was brought up by Takano in Higurashi? Something similar will happen here. I think their Kizuna will break down at some point and fuck up their coordination, making them unable to understand each other and fuck up their plans. It's exactly what happened in the story of the tower.

Chloe is resistant to stimulants, so they don't do shit for her. Naima can take harder, personality altering drugs and her brain damage is kept to a minimum because her brain can naturally take a lot of abuse.

It reminds me of the Midori from Higanbana whose soul was slowly eaten by a youkai and wouldn't technically die because he just took small bites. It's similar to how Naima is only getting slight brain damage as a result.

The Higanbana parallels are actually even stronger than the RGD or Higurashi parallels, which was really surpising. Chloe is straight up Yukari, bullies included, and Chloevil is Yukari after eating the thistle of vengeance. The whole situation with the "blues" and "greens" reminds me of how Higanbana described bullying as an utopia where everyone can be happy if someone is sacrificed and made into the bullied kid. Except in this case, it's one single kid that is bred to be a winner while everyone else is bred with shit genes and brainwashed with propaganda so they consent to join the AAI and become food for Chloe's ego.

It means she's from Egypt and the reason she keeps mentioning "them" (as in aliens who will come harvest humanity if we reach too high of a technology level) is because she's part of a group of scientists researching these aliens in a secret lab inside the Giza pyramid.

Are you sure about that? Age doesn't seem to be an issue in and of itself. You just need to have the right brain.

Ishak is also old as fuck for a knight and he's doing fine, even if he's not the best. They are probably born with DID and have naturally high P3 levels. Or they could be multitasking geniuses like Jayden.

Being old is only bad if your brain is relatively normal, because at that point it doesn't have enough plasticity for PP training to influence its development. It's stuck that way and makes it hard to even use a mental tablet without concentrating hard.

So theoretically someone with the right brain, who is capable of multitasking at a high level, including all gauntlet knights in the story, shouldn't have problems using them even 20 or 40 years into the future. Age doesn't matter as long as you don't develop alzheimer's or some shit.

If someone is not that young but their brain is used to multitasking and shaped correctly, PP training might not be that effective for them but will still make a difference. It's enough for them to be good gauntlet knights.

Also, it's mentioned that some of them are mostly there for their support skills, like in Rethabile and Lingji's kette where they are the main unit and the others are only there because they coordinate well with them, even if their P3 levels are average.

You're being blinded by the reader's perspective. In reality, knight selection is brutally strict in regards to age and natural talent, but the average citizen isn't privy to that kind of information. They take in tons of hopefuls that have no chance of actually passing to either transfer them to human experimentation labs or to use as failures to prop up the gifted.

I think too many people are taking Ciconia's content as a statement on modern social issues. Sure, Ryukishi has always been pretty woke, so it's easy to assume he's just taken that a step further. But in this case, I think he's simply trying to show how those issues could develop in the future. It's all just part of the setting, showing how society could change in the future.

It's more a commentary on western politics, as SJW thoughts have thoroughly infested both the U.S, Canada, and Europe. Japan, China and co. know all about that. It's more or less what's killing western civilization right now, and they know it perfectly, just talk to some of their citizens.

Now Ciconia is far too bizarre, weird, and self-contradictory to be a statement on western politics, that I agree. It's not self-consistent, both pros and cons are actively pushed by the narrative, characters agree on wildly bizarre and incoherent positions on social justice. It is either the most incompetent pro-SJW work ever made, or not pro-SJW at all. Or an exploration of both sides.

As far as I know, there are several furry levels:

>literal animal
Your mom's dog.

>talking animal with a human personality
The hamsters in Hamtaro. I do want to fuck those. Yeah, they are literal hamsters and their cuteness is purely a non-sexual "animal cuteness". The kind of cuteness your cat has. But once you add a human personality and human speech, that cuteness turns into human cuteness, the kind of cuteness that can make a literal talking hamster sexually appealing.

>CREEPY anthropomorphic animal
Your typical OC character featured in countless furry porn drawings. You know, the typical hairy wolf with a humanoid body shape but a literal wolf face and claws and shit. It's by far the most popular and the one that people think about when they hear "furry", but I find it unappealing and is the only type I wouldn't fuck.

>cute anthropomorphic animal
The mimigas from Cave Story. They are cute talking animals with human personalities too, but the difference is that they have a humanoid figure and live in some sort of mimiga society that is similar to that of humans. But they still eat only flowers and stuff because they are mimigas.

>half-human furries
Most of the characters in Sonic the Hedgehog. The exact percentage of humanity vs animal is debatable, but they clearly look half-human, especially the hedgehogs. Amy Rose belongs to this group. She has obvious animal features on her face and body, but she's not animal enough to belong to the previous group. These types also tend to act like normal humans and be animals in name and appearance only. You won't see Amy eating bugs because hedgehogs do that. That's one of the things the "cute anthropomorphic animals" would do. Not the half-humans.

1/2

>> No.22226873

>>22226864
>Borderline furry
Your typical anime girl with legit cat or bunny ears and a real tail coming out of her spine. She may act a bit like an animal sometimes, without really losing her human intelligence at any point. They look basically human and only have these weird personality quirks and animal appendages. The difference from the previous group is that their animal features are very few and quite superfluous. They don't have any animal features on their faces, limbs or bodies, only things like fangs, tails or ears.

>regular ass humans in cosplay
Normal human weebs wearing cat ears or bunny girl outfits and shit. Cute but not furry.

>normal humans
Normal people.

There is this weird cognitive dissonance when it comes to furry characters that makes you NOT imagine their asses, limbs or faces being hairy. Instead, you imagine them having bald skin of a certain color, even though you are fully aware of the fact that it's supposed to be fur.

Legit furries do imagine their bodies being furry and they enjoy the idea of fucking a humanoid animal, precisely because of their animal fur. That's a legit disgusting furry.

So I'm pretty sure 410 qualifies as an anime girl with REAL animal appendages and weird ass animal quirks. She's not just a weeb in cosplay. Does she even have real ears?

Z: The sonozaki family is blamed

in Umineko
X: you cant win, theres no good end like in Higurashi, everyone will always die one way or another
Y: source of Beatrice magic= the witch roulette, near infinite combination of culprits / its not always the same cuprits unlike higurashi again
Z: the real "truth of what happened in rokkenjima will never be known (ie in the real world not meta there will never be a definite proof of who killed who and how = source of ange magic, she can always create a world where her family is innocent )

so in cionia my guess is :
X: 4 traitors or always, not 1 more or less

If she was truly CPP she WOULD recall it unless Chloevil hid the memory from her. If the memory was shared, it would still feel weird, though, like she's remembering someone else's actions. I don't think a CPP would have sudden switches and breaks of consciousness, not even know their alter at all (they are naturally capable of co-consciousness without much effort) or be in such bad terms with them that they do this fucking shit without asking her first.

So I don't think she's one. She's just pretty insane from all the abuse and had a vengeful side to her.

Of course.

That's not really reading, just skimming past the subtle shit that was intended to make you wonder, come to certain conclusions or have ideas. If you don't digest each line for a second and just speedread, you might not be missing any of the text but you are missing the thoughts and ideas that the text was supposed to trigger in your brain.

VR and CPP stuff is something normal in the setting
Miyao and Evil Miyao and their scenes are only referenced and relevant after a sound effect called "meta" plays a CG called "meta" is displayed
During these scenes Evil Miyao gives Miyao future knowledge that Miyao never thinks about
Evil Miyao also offers Miyao an offer to stop all the deaths in exchange for him willing himself to stop existing(which sounds similar to Beato wanting Battler to surrender), and Miyao's personality is kind enough that it would make sense for him to go along with it after shit starts going down, and Miyao never even thinks about if it was an offer worth taking

No? They said that he shouldn't treat Miyao like he just has different "moods". They really are two separate people in their head and it's rude to act like they are a single individual.

>Using real world conventions here is pretty pointless to bring into this scifi shit.
Sure, most of the technology is scifi shit, but the dissociative identity disorder is completely real and very accurate to how it work in real life. It's not something Ryuukishi came up with. Other stories tend to exaggerate it based on stereotypes and shit, but this is one of the few where it's been portrayed accurately.

Now, the term CPP is fictional and made up by Ryuukishi. It refers to Congenital Parallel Processors (meaning that they were naturally born with DID and therefore their multitasking ability, also called parallel processing, is really damn good). That all it means. It's not a real term.

But CPP just describes someone who was "born" to be a parallel processor because they literally have two separate consciousnesses and can coexist at the same time if they want to. The term is made up for the purposes of the fictional military in Ciconia, who are searching for people capable of perfect multitasking, but DID itself is a real thing.

They characters are just using CPP to refer to DID itself because they don't want to be rude to people like Miyao and call it a "disorder". The terms are not equivalent, since the first refers to their natural ability to multitask while the second refers to the disorder itself.

I hope I made it clear. I believe this shit will be really important to understand if you want to solve all the mysteries presented here.

There's a few things I've been thinking of too.
There's Keropoyo's involvement, and...
In Umineko, the metaworld served a clear purpose - for discussion of the gameboard, and for the witches and detectives to challenge each other to see if they can solve the mystery, or 'prove' that magic is real.
However, this 'metaworld' doesn't seem to hold any particular meaning, other than being a space where Miyao and Evil Miyao talk. There's no greater discussion over the point of the gameboard, and Evil Miyao isn't really trying to challenge Miyao here, just trying to kill him outright (because apparently, Evil Miyao can't do so instantly). There's no equivalent to the blue or red truth (granted, these in Umineko weren't introduced until later), there's no point for Miyao being there other than being teased by Evil Miyao endlessly until he gives up and is erased. There is nothing for either of them to prove.

It's true the hypothetical part of an automated VR server is suspicious, but the conversation is very long, many characters talk and it's all started by a simple "I wish this party was reality"

This stuff is generally true for congenital DID, when someone is born "plural" due to a brain defect instead of having a single personality like you and me.

Trauma-induced DID is much more disruptive and could be considered a different variety. The brain still ends up developing in an unusual way, but this is caused by the young mind creating alters to deal with early childhood trauma, which makes the brain develop like that. You are born with a normal brain and it develops "wrong" because it's become used to separating memories and thoughts in different alters. This permanently transforms a healthy young brain into a defective one, similar to congenitals, and it only gets more warped as it grows.

Basically, trauma-induced DID means using your young mind wrong (with maladaptive defense mechanisms like alters) and causing the physical brain itself to adjust to that "wrong use" as it grows.

Him bringing up the stem COULD just be a coincidence, but it's probably brought up as a result of the fears Blue Miyao has reinforced in him. There COULD be some wacky meta rules catching Miyao off-guard such that he doesn't understand he's in a game yet, but he's probably just having a typical CPP conversation and reacting to an unfamiliar stimulus in his psyche. Keropoyo's appearance in the conversations COULD be some giant metaphor, but it's probably just actually fucking there in his brain.

>Him bringing up the stem
He doesn't at all, the most suspicious thing he does is ask, hypothetically, if Jayden would go full VR world if the servers were automatically managed and had no problems
This isn't that suspicious by itself but the hypothetically part sure is, I can agree this much
Not enough to accept this as a confirmation of Miyao remembering

I don't think there is much problems with Miyao being confused during his first "meta" scene and being kind of lost, he could simply be confused at suddenly being in a different plane of existence, and it's not like we have reliable information on how people enter the meta in other WTCs

Keropoyo is an stretch though and I can agree that much

Overall there isn't enough evidence to support it, but I don't think it's safe to deny it either until we get some extra info on what is Evil Miyao's deal, who pretty much is the biggest mystery so far

>despite spending some time in a mental hospital I never actually met someone with that disorder
Someone who is in a mental hospital to treat that disorder doesn't really have what Miyao has.

In real life, people who are born with DID don't necessarily have any traumas or troubles associated with it, so they are technically not "disordered". It depends on the brain, but it can often be a benign condition where the personalities work together during their daily life and create rules for when each one is allowed to become dominant, in case they want to and aren't satisfied with just observing and talking to each other.

Generally, more than two personalities active at the same time will strain the brain, causing headaches after a while, so they tend to spend time together in pairs.

Alright, my bet is
Toujirou is using Miyao to find Takano, this is his primary objective for some reason.
Seshat is trying to prevent whathever Takano wants to do, as she's hunting the people that call the numbers thing "wisdom" and going against God as implied by the 16th fragment.
The Three Kings want to use Miyao because he's their program, so they're simply procceding with the original plan, the "murder_program.exe" was something however that Toujirou himself implemented working as subordinate/double-agent for them.
Takano is Miyao's mother and has a method to make use of the murder_program for her own means, hilariously she's on god's side or plans to use him for her own reasons.

"Evil Miyao" was implanted by either Jestress as a means of giving Miyao a choice or Seshat as an attempt to stop whathever Takano is trying to do.

Overall I believe Jestress to be a red herring.

The only unrealistic part of Ciconia in that regard, or should I say unlikely, is that Miyao looks like such an androgynous faggot. An appearance like that is rare in real life, and it's even rarer that someone like that also has congenital DID.

In real life, it's super rare for both conditions to happen to the same person, so people born with DID can suffer tremendously because they have to share fractions of their life with others, alters of the opposite gender can't really take over and be themselves because the body doesn't fit their behavior/tastes, people believe they are faking (there are plenty of fakers online, to be fair) and they can't really come out about it, even to their family members. So they end up being ridiculed if they reveal it or have to stay hidden, all pretending to act like the same person, without really making their own friends or living their own life.

I think you are right about it being the meta, but this evil Miyao cunt is not a personality of Miyao.

You forget that the frequency of DID is far higher in the A3W world than it is right now.

Nah, trannies are just a single person with a mental illness that makes them identify as the opposite sex, feeling like their body is "wrong". The insidious thing about trannies is that they'd probably refuse a future psychotropic treatment that erased their feelings of "dysphoria" in favor of the much more dangerous solution of transforming their body through surgery to fit the delusions of their mental illness.

Also, Ryuukishi hasn't written a tranny yet, despite what the SJWs might want to believe. Yasu wasn't born with dysphoria, he was born normal. What made him confused and fucked him up was losing his genitals as a baby, growing up as an underdeveloped genderless freak with no hormones and being raised as a girl, before having all the truth dumped her at the worst moment. She never developed did, but she played around with tulpas too much to sort out her feelings, turning the different sides and feelings in her head into different "characters" to sort them out. She never had DID and was alone in her head except for intrusive thoughts.

Meow/Miyao (I don't know which is the one that doesn't fit their unknown real sex) could arguably be considered to suffer from dysphoria. But that's just a normal consequence of having personalities of different genders, one of them will have to deal with a body they don't really feel comfortable in. And even so, they seem to be pretty happy because they are so androgynous, don't exercise and are practically flatchested, so they can mantain a good balance and pass as either gender whenever they want. (I'm firmly on the camp of "they are really female").

Because Lion isn't real and Lion's world isn't real either. It's a world imagined by Yasu. A lot of things don't add up in that world, including Lion's appearance and ideas about gender. He's a projection of a perfect self imagined by Yasu, who can't deal with the fact that the "real" Lion would just be a normal masculine dude with brown hair.

>and yasu main personality is female, beato is female, shannon is the happy personality while kanon is the one thats stays furniture, doesnt see the sea being blue yadi yada
This confirms what I'm saying. Shannon is the main "personality" because she was raised as a girl her whole life. She is a girl. Kanon only appeared when she realized that she's not really a girl at all but a castrated male eunuch without a future.

You don't fuck the guy with a pussy, you tell your girlfriend to make him go away so he doesn't have to watch you fuck his body.

They asked Meow if her real sex is the one that Jayden was worried about, and she said "no, it's not like that, but...". And then the narration explained that a gender reveal would have consequences for Miyao, who is the only person most people in their life know. She didn't want to shame her proud onii-chan for a selfish desire to fuck a guy.

It's like how Shion was originally Mion but she let her sister pretend to be her sometimes out of pity. And then the tattoo thing happened and their identities were switched forever. It's possible that she let Miyao live on the outside because he's more hot tempered while she's a fucking shut in with no aspirations in life. And before she knew it, they were teenagers and Miyao had surrounded himself with friends and lots of acquaintances who knew him as a normal guy with no DID shit, let alone a vagina. By that point, she had no choice but to remain in his shadow and indulge in her otaku hobbies alone.

They chose to be a guy on the outside and now they are stuck like this even if Meow wants to find love. Reavealing their sex would make their social life a mess, Miyao would feel humiliated, people would be asking questions and he would have to explain about his DID to everyone, some of which might not believe it and think he's become a faggot.

Another thing supporting the theory is their names.

They were originally called Miyao and at some point gave themselves different names. So she chose Meow because it's similar to the name she's had since the beginning.

He has the whole story planned out and said it would be less reactive than other WTC to reader theories. The structure and most of the events are already written, he just needs to put it all into words. It won't change depending on what people on the internet have figured out this time around

Umineko and Higurashi were reactive to people's theories (EP3 was changed because people were so lost with EP2) and they were released six months apart (except for one year when he skipped comiket), even though Ryuukishi was literally writing half of Higurashi while on the job (dude can multitask apparently).

So in theory Ciconia should take even less time, but it will probably be every six months. He has the story planned out in detail and is fully dedicated to the job of writing VNs. Unless there are delays from the colorist, the musicians or the 3D animators, there should be a chapter every six months.

This makes more sense the more I think about it.

Miyao probably sees his pussy and small tits every day, that's why he's not interested in women's bodies that much. And he's a macho despite being a pipsqueak, so he's not interested in gay shit either. He's probably heterosexual but isn't that horny about women because he knows all there is to know about their bodies.

Many otaku freaks want to be little girls. Maybe Ryuukishi is living out his fantasy of not only having the body of a cute girl, but also having that girl in your head as a lifelong mental companion AND dominating her body and making it yours to do with as you please, her feelings be damned.

I mean, Miyao is a bit selfish when you think about it. What's all this business about "letting her go out to play". She may be more childish and immature, but that doesn't give him the right to one-sidedly control their life like that.

Maybe that's why he went back to the conspiracy theory style of mysteries from Higurashi, and cranked it up to 11. The only way to figure out the truth is to put on your tin foil hat, take shots in the dark and come up with any plausible theory you can think of. He gave us all sorts of fuel in the form of illuminatis, chivalric orders, aliens, souls, nanomachines, VR, DID, immortality, crazy tech, angel wings, monstrous creatures, war between factions, political intrigue...

Umineko was a rare specimen in that regard, because it had clearly defined rules, red truth and all that, so an attentive reader would be guaranteed to figure out most of the truth early on. If he tried that again, people would solve it all in the first episode because they already know his tricks and his tendency to put foreshadowing literally everywhere. So he went for conspiracy mystery this time.

I really like it that way. It allows for countless theories.

wants to cull humanity in the same way as the 3 kings. but the difference is he wants more people (himself included) to survive it. he likely has another goal related to miyao and/or his ex beyond this though.
>seshat
not entirely clear. seems to go along with the 3K, to the point where gray considers her a traitor. it's notable that gray sees the 3K as direct enemies.
when talking about the wisdom stolen by gray, she basically says "it's not time yet", so it's not sure if she wants to go against the 3K eventually at a later point.

it's also notable that seshat is not her real name or necessarily even her real avatar. she might be someone else we know already.

Despite fighting for the rational side, Battler is fairly religious in his mindset, don't you think? He doesn't believe only because he doesn't want to believe and that's not a reasonable way to go about things.

Whenever I see Battler coming up with ridiculous stories about traps and suicides I can't help but think about all the debates between atheists and Christians I've seen.

For example, in the Gospel of Matthew Jesus predicts Peter’s denial by saying that “he would deny Him 3 times before the rooster crows” but in the Gospel of Mark he predicts that he would deny Him 3 times “before the rooster crows twice”. These are the facts stated in red but a sly apologist would deny witches that there is a contradiction anyway. After all, it all fits together perfectly if Peter denied Jesus 6 times: 3 times before the rooster crowed and 3 times before the rooster crowed twice! Checkmate, atheists!

Does anyone else notice the similarities between Battler and Beato's game and Christian apologetics or is it just me?

Umineko was only hard because:

-The red was misleading (half a truth is a whole lie).

-The magic explanations and lore were fascinating and made you stop thinking.

-Scenes where magic didn't happen could still be lies, but readers accepted them as truth without questioning the sources.

-The magic scenes themselves contained most of the truth in plain view or as a metaphor, but readers were likely to dismiss it all as bullshit and forget about anything they said.

If you didn't fall for those pitfalls, it was easy.

'They' are the aliens. Seshat is also an alien. Also Hanyuu is an alien. You have to remember that most guardian dieties have territories in proportion to how much they are able to inspire reverence, fear or worship. This is how pseudo-meta beings get their power, as well as actual meta-beings like witches. In Higurashi, Hanyuu was able to obtain power due to Hinamizawa curse and used it to give Rika a second change over and over. In Umineko, Beatrice got her power by having people on the internet ponder about the Rokenzima murders happened. In Higurashi Hou, this is spelled out blatantly with a new alien deity taking over the world. Throughout the world, each god is essentially real with a limited amount of shared territory.
So my theory is that Seshat is the same, except her territory is the entire internet and all of knowledge. And these new aliens want to kill all of humanity to end the protection given by those deities and eat humanity entirely.

You haven't taken into account that Ryukishi is old. He complained a lot that he can't write as much as he wants. I was reading some old interviews and he said that, while writing Higurashi, he would only sleep 4 hours a night and that it would give him enough time to work and write everything. He probably did the same with Umineko. But he's getting older, so that sort of dedication isn't possible.

Impression:
-By the time the game ended, while I wanted to get to know some of the other characters better, I felt I would miss focusing on the original 6. R07 did a good job of getting you invested in these characters.
-The sci-fi and philosophical aspects were all extremely interesting. It feels like R07 has had a lot of ideas that he wanted to express, but couldn't find a way to include them in the stories he was telling, and now he's finally able to let loose. Nothing felt unbelievable.
-R07 has improved his writing, mainly by being more concise. Gone are the days in Umineko where an entire page could be made up of rephrases of the same sentence. Things are said simply and with purpose. I don't think the walls of peace were repeated too much because they're a key motivator and symbol of the actions the characters are taking.
-People said that the scariest part of the game was the factory, but I thought the Pandora treatment and the Christmas party were scarier.
-There needs to be a glossary for certain key terms. I get that additional information about them is introduced as the story progresses, but they always start off by giving you something. It would be very helpful to include references for terms like 8MS, CPP, PP, A3W, Dreissig conversion, Spiritium, etc. Add additional information as the story progresses if you don't want to say it all right away. I read it through very quickly, so I had an easy time remembering, but this may be a problem for people who have worse memory or need to take a break from reading for a while.
-The music was disappointing. The tracks in general weren't memorable or particularly suited to the story. I enjoyed that some of the tracks had a war theme that fit the game, but many didn't. Umineko was able to create some clear themes, even from the beginning. (Classical music = normal life, techno = magic/horror) The music, while fitting, was also technically impressive: Tracks like Hane, In the sun, Towering cloud in summer, Novelette, Steady pace, Ride on, Sakura, Rose, and Worldend were all extremely high-quality and present from the beginning. (It's a testament to their quality that I could name almost all of these off the top of my head after so many years because of how many times I've listened to them.)
-The ending was lackluster. It felt like he was saying, "Look at all the cool things that are going to be in future games! Trust me, they're great, so buy them!" Just confusing and pointless.

Predictions:
-One arc will have the knights kill the adults and stage a coup. This will be similar to Umineko's Banquet: You blamed the adults, so I killed them all.
-Each phase will focus on one of the other factions. We might even see the grand master of the chivalric order or its leaders change in each phase.
-The other phases will take different apocalyptic texts as guides for their plots. I can't see him using the exact same one multiple times. It would get too repetitive.

It's made clear later on that he doesn't like the idea of his gf having a dick, so he's obviously thinking he's female during the cafeteria scene.

And then, after he resolves himself to love her no matter what, he's still unsure about what sex she might be. Even though at first he believed this was totally a dude with a female alter. Something made him doubt that apparently "obvious" fact.

What makes it a WtC game are the victory conditions applied to a gameboard. Compare Ciconia with RGD or Higanbana. Those two aren't WtC games because there are no victory conditions, they're normal VNs. Ciconia is a secret duel between the Witch of Fate and the Witch of Miracles, with perhaps the side aid of the Witch of Certainty.

>higurashi it was about figuring out what was going on in the first place
It's figuring what's going on, just like Higurashi and Umineko. That's always the game. The fact that you don't know what's going on only mean you're losing the game.

Now if you're talking about the ultimate end goal, then for Higurashi it was to survive, for Umineko it was exposing the witch in order to survive, and for Ciconia it is understanding what's happening in order to survive.

It almost seems like it's a WtC.

Same as Higurashi. What the hell is going on, who's on whose side and an assortment of smaller mysteries.
