Dlanor is the LATO gauntlet knight that exploded.

She wants to destroy the WALLS OF PEACE because Knox rules forbid gauntlets, 8MS, mental tablets and other unexplained scientific devices for all eternity. Their existence is blasphemy against God.

format: claire question
Will's truth
erikantrice truth

-Legend of the golden witch:
1) Mystery: First game, first twilight, six corpses in the garden shed
Illusions to illusions. ...The corpse that cannot return to earth returns to illusions.
George believed that Shannon was alive(cannot return to earth mean the corpse cannot return alive like in the illusion of George)
2)First game, second twilight. Two corpses are close in a closed room protected by a chain.
Illusions to illusions. ...The corpse that cannot return to earth returns to illusions.
the closed room was faked by kanon and genji
3)First game, fourth twilight. The old Head from the closed room study, confined in a scorching furnace.
Illusions to illusions. ...Let the man of illusions go to where he belongs.
KINZO didnt exist.
4)First game, fifth twilight. The last moments of the sacrificed boy with a stake in his chest.
Illusions to illusions. ...The witch and stake of illusions can pierce naught but illusions.
kanon faked his death with nanjo help.
5)First game, sixth, seventh, and eighth twilights. Three corpses lying in the closed room of the singing girl.
Illusions to illusions. ...Illusions are the blind girl's song. Illusion of a closed room.
kanon had a key.
-Turn of the golden witch:
1)Second game, first twilight. The six with their stomachs split in the closed room chapel.
llusions to illusions. ...The gold truth locks the lock of illusions.
the golden truth (witness testimonies)
the closed room had been created by rosa after she said that the envelop where she had taken the key had been sealed all the time.
but this was all an illusion she didn't know that the letters had been swap.
even if Rosa wasn't lying she was in wrong.
2)Second game, second twilight. The two who are close cannot even be close as corpses.
Illusions to illusions. ...Illusions who have fulfilled their role do not even leave a corpse behind.
kanon killed jessica and kanon personality die.
3)Second game, fourth, fifth, and sixth twilights. In Natsuhi's closed room, none are left alive.
Earth to earth. ...No one would dispute that a coffin is a closed room.
George killed gohda shannon and himself
4)Second game, seventh and eighth twilights. The two sliced to death by the red-eyed illusion.
Earth to earth. Illusions to illusions. ...No illusion can create a corpse.
Kanon wasn't an illusion.

-Banquet of the Golden Witch:
1)Third game, first twilight. Six corpses connected by the linked closed rooms.
Illusions to illusions. ...In the closed room ring, the end and the beginning overlap.
the closed room circle begins in the boiler room with kanon that put kinzo's body in the boiler and ends up in the boiler room
with nanjo pretending to find the chapel key.
2)Third game, second twilight. The corpses of mother and child lay together in the rose garden.
Earth to earth. ...No falsehoods in their final moments as told.
no trick to explain kanon had faked his death could kill them
3)Third game, fourth, fifth, and sixth twilights. Three corpses lying in the mansion.
Earth to earth. ...No falsehoods in their final moments as told.
no trick to explain kanon had faked his death could kill them
4)Third game, seventh and eighth twilights. The corpses of husband and wife lay exposed under the arbor.
Earth to earth. ...The obvious culprit wields a mutable blade.
mutable blade:krauss and natsuhi thought george would help them to defeat the culprit eva
without knowing that he was actually the real culprit.

-Alliance of the Golden Witch:
1)Fourth game, first twilight. A massacring storm sweeps through the dining hall.
Illusions to illusions. ...Tales woven by the gold truth return to illusions.
the true death of the six was poisoning gohda and krauss they lied as ordered by genji
2)Fourth game, second twilight. The two youths face their trials and pass away together.
Illusions to illusions. ...Tales woven by the gold truth return to illusions.
George was not dead Jessica lied as ordered by Genji.
3)Fourth game, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth twilights. None of the runaways are left alive.
Earth to earth. Illusions to illusions. ...Silent corpses, adorned by fiction.
all killed(adorned) by a witch who should not exist(kanon).
4)Fourth game, ninth twilight. And none shall be left alive.
Earth to earth. Illusions to illusions. ...When fiction is shut up inside a cat box, it becomes truth.

How do we continue the trend of one anime being worse than another, that is: how can we ruin Phase 1 the most? I suggest two episodes solely for Jayden and Meow's nohomo adventures, so the rest has to be condensed into one or two; also cut cute fluff scenes like Tojirou's LATO harem or most bath house meetings

The anime would probably be garbage. Worth it for the porn and the opening, though. And maybe some well-animated scenes here and there.

I'd wager the manga is in the works, Umineko's first chapter was released in January '08 when Legend was out at C72 in August '07, so I'd wager a few more months until something's said about it

I just don't like anime adaptations of VNs. What's the point? I understand adapting manga, but what does a shitty anime with piss poor animation bring to the table? The VN already has color, music and sound. Anime adaptations are just a poor retelling of the story at most.

I wish all anime adaptations of VNs were replaced with 26 episodes of goofy shenanigans or random unconnected scenes that are cool to look at, things that couldn't fit into the VN and would only be possible in anime form. That is much better than just a watered down retelling.

Except the Key animes, those are generally good.

the way they'll probably fuck it up will be with the fights
remember how 90% of the times when there is a fight they just skip it and don't describe the action?
in the anime they will animate every fight and spend entire episodes on that
so they won't have time for the actual plot and also they will cut on their relations between factions so during the ending it will look like they are friends for no reason

This. I wish anime episodes were just random scenes from the VN given life with really good animation.

Just like how fanart focuses on cool scenes that happened in the VN, I wish anime would just be a collection of 20 minutes long scenes, totally disconnected from each other. Like something you sit down to admire, not to follow an actual story because that's what the VN is for.

>> No.22318828

An anime could work pretty well as long as they don't make it a 1:1 adaptation of the VN. Most of Ciconia is people talking in the bath. Keep the conversations, but play them over other scenes, like training or combat. This would also fit with the theme of parallel processing. You just need a quick shot to establish who's talking to who in the bath.

>> No.22318832

>so they won't have time for the actual plot
I think this is the issue with anime adaptations. They shouldn't be focusing on "adapting the plot", they should be their own original material that makes sense as an anime product, not a retelling of a VN plot that wasnt made with the shortcomings of animation in mind. I wish the entirety of the Higurashi anime was like the Nekogoroshi OVA or the filler arc at the beginning of the first season. New stuff doing things at its own pace, without having to cramp a story written in VN format into 20 minute episodes.

Anime adaptations shouldn't even have to worry about "making room for the plot", because they shouldn't be trying to be a replacement for the VN in the first place. Nobody should be watching an adaptation before the original work, and nobody gives a shit about "understanding the plot" if they are watching the anime after the VN. They just want to see the good bits animated, so why not focus on that and abandon all pretensions of telling a story.

>> No.22318838

Kira is fantastic too. It's just fun fanservice and the animation is great.

That's the point. You can use it to show more of the world or the character's lives. However, this means that for phase 1, we'd mostly focus on the AOU nations so things aren't spoiled.

100% true

sadly most of the time people are not aware they are watching something adapted from a vn

that's i got into wtc in the first place
i watched higu, i liked it, then discovered that it was a VN and i ruined it for me.
so i found out about umineko and read that

>> No.22318884

I still love Higurashi and was able to enjoy the VN as an "expanded" version of the anime. It's a great story regardless, so knowing the truth doesn't ruin it that much. The anime is still pretty garbage as an adaptation, but it's enjoyable as its own thing.

>> No.22318888

The novel says that humanity reached 10 billion before WW3, and it has now recovered that number once again.

My theory is that WW3 never happened. Most of the "dead" were simply tricked into joining a cult that ended with them and their families being killed in the factory to make spiritium, while very few of them were chosen to become brains living in VR. The outside world's population recovered over time and the factories were sealed by intentional disasters/military attacks. Information about WW3 was covered up because it's all a lie and there was never a war.

Not a single character in the story is a VR brain... yet. But some people from the B3W era are already brains in jars.

Hey, lewd editing anon, I don't know if you remember but a year or two ago, we would bounce off lewd edits of Umineko characters between each other.

>> No.22320153

They adapted Higurashi which was highly adaptable, especially in that period of anime. Since that went so well (and ONLY because it went so well) they adapted umineko next. Umineko's anime was terrible and didn't sell though, so they didn't make a second season.
Ciconia is cool but it doesn't really have the same context Umineko had, and Higurashi is kind of outdated already. It's not impossible that it gets an adaptation, but it's way less likely than Umineko's anime was.

That's why he didn't. The manga reveals that Meta Battler is Tohya's lost identity as Ushiromiya Battler.

Beato then immediately began the game and put him in Legend, which is why it seemed like he came from it.

I love how you can know more about Yasu's character by analyzing how she narrates the first two episodes and how she portrays each character in the story. It's fascinating.

Kinzo in particular changes a lot. He starts off as a crazy lunatic (partly the fault of Natsuhi and Krauss who need to make it look like he's senile and won't come out) who doesn't give a shit about his family and wants to sacrifice them to demons. Then Tohya takes over and he becomes a bit more sympathetic while still being pretty crazy. He is practically absent from the two Ikuko episodes featuring her self-insert detective. Then we get his backstory in EP7 and we get to see his good ol' grandpa side in EP8, now that Tohya remembers more about him.

Battler admits that EP8 is a farce, but he insists that the Kinzo thing is actually true. The Kinzo in the halloween party is how he used to be when Battler was a kid, he was a good grandfather with some weird hobbies.

Lion is meant to be a dude, but the Lion we see in the story is a meta/fantasy character with made up looks, an idealized personality and a variable gender to make it more palatable for Yasu. So technically we don't know the real Lion because he never existed and we only know this fantasy version that can technically be a boy or a girl because that's the whole point of their existence as an idealized Yasu. EP7 Lion is not a real person.

This means that female Lion is a thing, in the same way that meta-Shannon can have real breasts.

I mean, the whole premise of EP7 is that it's a fake world and not a real kakera. It's a fantasy world where Lion has golden hair, a perfect life, no character flaws, a perfectly androgynous appearance and an out-of-nowhere personal philosophy about how gender doesn't matter.

The world itself has Shannon and Kanon as servants (who shouldn't exist if Lion is there), real golden roses exist, nobody bats an eye at a complete stranger who just came into the chapel in their private island, George is a perfect, confident gentleman (even though he only became like this thanks to his relationship with Shannon, who doesn't exist in this world).

The events that take place at the end are also a bit nonsensical. Especially the part about Rudolf and Kyrie killing everybody for... either a billion yet credit card that doesn't exist without Yasu, or ten tons of gold that will be buried in the explosion. And they do this relying on a bomb they don't know exists because Yasu wasn't there to tell them.

I think this is all hinting at the fact that the world of EP7 is a fantasy as imagined by Yasu.

How come Lion can only exist in this one world where he gets killed by Kyrie? What about other realities where Lion exists and the massacre doesn't happen? The answer is that this world is a fantasy. And Bern is trying to lock up this fantasy in the regular catbox, where every tale always ends with the explosion and everyone dead, no matter what. This is why Lion can't avoid this fate, even though it makes no sense from a multiverse perspective. Because Lion never got the chance to exist IRL, Lion is just an idealized version of Yasu imagined by her. A fantasy. And Bern is heartlessly trying to force this fantasy world into the catbox, which must end with the explosion.

When Will fights Bernkastel and tells Lion to "keep fighting" and "refuse to accept that he was shot", he's trying to keep the fantasy alive, out of the catbox. Lion's world is a fantasy and so is he, so there is no reason for them to be constrained by the rules of the catbox. His world isn't restricted by reality and can go its separate way, having a happy ending where everyone goes back home.

>> No.22320697

>the whole premise of EP7 is that it's a fake world and not a real kakera
The premise is that it's supposed to be an extremely unlikely kakera. Being a straight-up impossible fantasy is a reasonable extrapolation, but not something actually confirmed.

You bring up some valid points, so I think this interpretation has some definite merits.

>> No.22320708

I'm willing to bet it wasn't WW3 anymore than just plain Climate Collapse that nearly does humanity in (not like any of you Coal Miners and Oil Drillers believe any of this shit).

>> No.22320741

Will straight up says that it's a world of several fragments forcibly joined together. Where pieces from the regular game (Shannon and Kanon) have been placed by Bernkastel. Where nobody is surprised by a meta dude with a sword walking into the chapel. Where magic is real without the need of a narrator lying about it. Where the outside of the chapel can be magically sealed by a force field that burns people to a crisp if they try to go outside.

The premise is clearly that it's anything but a normal kakera, unlikely or not. And Umineko operates on a different logic anyway. Whether the meta exists or not, it can all be explained by the authorship theory and concepts in Ange/Tohya's head anyway. The catbox starts on October 4, and anything before or after those two days is set in stone. So Lion's world was never a possibility of the catbox in the first place, even if we ignore its blatantly magical properties.

>> No.22320905

They can convert the spiritium on the atmosphere into energy, using just their brains. This means that they can power the gauntlets anytime, anywhere, as many times as they want, as long as they have enough glucose to perform the conversion.

Trains and other machinery need to be connected to steam pipes or some other power source. And once it's gone, they need to refill. Gauntlets can be "recharged" by their users no matter where they are. They only need some mantainance once in a while.

I think it was only natural for him to become fixated on Beatrice, if you're looking at it from the perspective of Tohya.

I also think that the Battler/Beatrice relationship is a huge parallel to Dante/Beatrice. Dante also only saw his Beatrice twice, yet was so enraptured with her that when she died he wrote a bunch of poems in her honor.

So, I just finished Phase 01 a couple of minutes ago. It was definitely different from the previous WTC entries. Like, for one, I just don't see the mystery factor at play, considering nearly all factions are known, we know who is doing what (even if their identities are concealed). I also think this first part of the story was rather lacking in impact compared to Onikakushi and Legend of the Golden Witch in which, sure you had some introduction that wasn't particularly eventful, but as soon as the killings started you ended up in a downward spiral which was one hell of a ride, whereas in Phase 01 of Ciconia, you have events happening all over the world, all of which pack some serious developments in the world, but the relevant characters aren't personally affected until the very end when Miyao kills Lingji.
The biggest change, though, is that it seems that in Ciconia we won't have events repeating themselves time and time again until they find a way out of their predicament, but it seems Phase 02 will continue from where Phase 01 left off.

As for the characters, Miyao was okay, but he wasn't fun like K1, or made me angry like Battler did in EP1. The treatment of the side characters was kinda off, as we start with focus on Jayden and Gunhild, but then as soon as the Order is established, those two are kinda forgotten for a large portion of the story, along with every other character that wasn't the leader of one of the main kettes (i.e. Miyao, Lingji, Rethabile and Stanislaw). The Order started with the idea that all of them had to think for themselves, but it eventually devolved into a Miyao fan club, and somehow no one could think for themselves any more and he had to be the one doing all the thinking. Then there's also Meow. I never understood her purpose in the story, other than some crappy excuse for R07 to add homoerotic romance.

Anyhow, holy shit Chloe is hot as fuck. Like, tatas aside, because plenty of the girls have them, look at those wide hips, for fucks sake. How was every single guy around her not making passes at her is beyond me.

Oh, I also forgot, but the horror part also seems to be out of the window as well. Consider that, even if Higanbana (which wasn't part of the WTC series) didn't involve any mystery, it was still horror (RGD being it sown thing, different from anything R07 had done before). And, whilst war has it's own scary things and the setting in Ciconia is an apocalyptic one, it isn't a horror in the conventional sense, as it lacks that feeling of dread you could get from Higurashi and Umineko. I mean, throughout the story, bad things keep happening, but Miyao always manages to find a way to somewhat deal with things, but it isn't until the very end that things go completely south for the main characters. For me, that was a considerable let down.

I think that's the wrong mindset to have. Remember at the end where they talk about the drone attack. About 1/3 of the population was just killed, but it doesn't feel significant because no one they knew died. To put this into context, remember the apparent goal here: to ensure the survival of humanity. You're explicitly called to care about the human race as a whole, not just you friends, family, or countrymen, which is a theme repeated throughout the story.

I wonder how high school Ange would react to being stripped naked by her bullies and forced to walk around the school like that, her hairy pussy and pathetic ass crack exposed as everyone mocks her. Her decently sized breasts bouncing in a lewd way as someone plays with them. Her naked body being kicked and punched by girls her age as she falls to the floor and starts crying.

I mean, if a witch tortured her to the point of making her faint or scream in agony, that'd be understandable. If a witch killed her entire family in front of her, she'd start crying and screaming in sorrow. But how the fuck would she react when she finds herself butt naked in front of her entire class? It's so unpredictable! It's such an awkward situation, she would probably behave erratically.

On one hand, she'd want to scream, cover herself or try to get away from the bullies. But on the other hand, her life is already ruined and there is no point in fighting back anymore. She may as well enjoy her own humiliation in a twisted way and do everything they tell her to do, being reduced to furniture. Giving up on her humanity and pride is the only way to get over the fact that she's butt naked in front of everyone. Otherwise, she'd have to bear the pain of being so thoroughly humiliated while she still values her dignity.

The unpredictability of a broken Ushiromiya Angste! Lewd! I bet her reaction would be super fun to watch, as her confused mind alternates between trying to preserve her dignity and giving up on it. She may even collapse because the situation is so overwhelming.

Can you imagine reading that whole scene from Ange's perspective? Becoming invested in a character's story and wanting her to succeed only to see her experience a degrading humiliation that crushes all her hopes is the best! It gives the story a bad ending that makes you feel awful, but at the same time you kinda enjoy the trainwreck because it's such an intense scene where you get to see a human being reduced to a worthless piece of meat. Lewd!

Imagine Maria and Mammon seeing all of that. Ange will never be able to have a conversation with them ever again, because she'll be really embarrassed. They witnessed her degradation, they heard her pathetic begging and screaming as one of the bullies forced pencils into her ass while another filmed everything with a 90s video camera.

Umineko is such a lewd series. Ryukishi belongs in a mental institution. What do you think, everyone?

Would the same logic not apply in real life? We're involved with our own troubles with our own friends and family. You may feel that you don't have the time to consider the motivations of people that you don't know when it's hard enough to balance between your own and your social circle. But that's the truth of the world. I think people complain about the repetition of walls of peace, but the core idea behind it, considering the other's point of view and trying to strike a balance, requires repetition because humanity is inherently tribal.

No, I perfectly agree with this, there are a lot of recurring themes about how people, especially in a social-media infested era (of which selcoms are just a different manifestation) have grown too distant from war. It either happens far too distant from you (involving drones to begin with, so you have not to worry about the loss of human life) or it's literally a game in the Battle Standard Festival of Peace. This has lead to people forgetting what 'Peace' even means, it's something you realize how heavy it is when you lose it. Generally speaking, I think the novel goes to great lengths to make sure we the readers understand the mentality of this (unchanging) world.

My problem is that somehow impacts the narrative, at least for me. For how long the story is, it feels to me it lacks a lot in events actually impacting our main characters and it repeats the same themes too many times -in the same way-. "In the same way" being the deal breaker for me there. The subject of the sprouts of evil, gauntlet knights being merely a medicine that is not fixing an underlying problem, the subjectivity of justice, the need to rebel so that "pieces" can be promoted to "players" are all recurring and very interesting, but too many times it's just Ryukishi saying the very same things with slightly different words without expanding and going more indept compared to when they were introduced.

It's strange, it's the first time I find a story so interesting in concept and yet I have to push myself through past the middle point.

I can see your point. My hope is that the meaningless repetition is in fact intended and meaningful. From the very beginning, the bath order was only going to be a circlejerk. It was obvious once the rules were stated: no one answers to anyone else, no one can be compelled to do anything, everyone is free to make their own decisions. It was a neat idea, but it caved once the military came in and imposed actual consequences to compel knights to act in the way they wanted.

I'm hoping that R07 acknowledges that, while it's easy to get together and circlejerk for an idea, it's a lot tougher to do something about it.

>> No.22322457

>> No.22322484

>From the very beginning, the bath order was only going to be a circlejerk
That does add to the dramatic ending, I do admit it, since it feels that the only person truly believing fully to this (either due to naivete or blind idealism) was Miyao himself. Most of the others merely either followed suit due to peer pressure, not wanting to offend anyone else, or are downright lying.

Let's be clear: the order would've never worked since its very inception, you cannot merely hope that following each own sense of justice will automatically lead to a good result just because the members are all Guardians of the Walls (aka having the same job). Since the very beginning, I wondered for how long this happy mental world would've lasted since an immediate problem came to my mind: what the hell happens if a member believes he's acting as a force for peace, while another one considers that a sprout of evil? This never really comes up in the phase, but the conclusions are quite telling, since they'd obviously fight over it (either in words or actions) and while no one would die due to the "let them escape" rule, what are they doing is still the anti-dialog thing Toujirou was complaining about early on: the opinion of the strong becomes truth. So it's just war, nothing has changed, even within the Order that was acting as if it wanted to change everything.

The early discussion between Toujirou and Seshat is really the key, if you ask me. Humanity has slightly changed the subject (from war is evil to war is good), but has not learnt anything. The A3W and B3W worlds are exactly the same cake with a different frosting on it, what we need is a complete revolution in how civilization itself thinks, acts and fixes itself.

It's not about processing the information or retaining the details. It's about coming up with ideas of your own and imagining stuff, which is what half the text is attempting to make you do.

It would be interesting to see them as cameos in a weird ass Ciconia TIP, with Ciconia coloring and proportions.

But I like how each series has its own visual style. Higurashi sprites have massive hamhands, big Key eyes and color-coded characters with super shiny hair. Umineko sprites have slightly smaller hamhands, more uniform colors that look like they've been filled in with the Paint bucket tool, and more realistic hair colors for the humans. Higanbana sprites are like Umineko's but everyone has really dark shadows and the backgrounds are more stylized in their blurriness to produce a cold/heartless effect.

The important thing is not how much you "like" one style or the other. It's not about visuals. The thing is that the updated sprites fail at portraying emotions effectively, which hinders your enjoyment of the story. Regardless of which sprites you "like" more out of context.

I never pay attention to that shit. I pay far more attention to the text and music than I do the actual artwork, so I choose whichever artstyle I find to be more pleasing to look at and easier to immerse myself in. I trust the narrative and tone to convey emotion, not the art.

I read vns a lot how I read the book. I use sprites and backgrounds as a frame of reference to help me imagine the scene, not as a 1:1 portrayal of the scene. Janky sprites make that harder to extrapolate.

The original backgrounds do a much better job of making the locations look mysterious and alien. And since they are pictures, they often capture random details that are interesting to look at and wouldn't be present in a clear drawing made from scratch where every little thing is deliberately placed there.

Same with the sprites. Whenever Ryuukishi needed to portray a certain emotion that wouldn't fit any of the previous sprites... he would just draw a new face for the character. That's how Higurashi and Umineko got new facial expressions in each episode. He would just draw the perfect face for the situation and add it to the list of available faces. Having some professional artist reproduce his sprites in their own style doesn't always fit, because the faces will inevitably be different in some way no matter how faithful the new artist tries to draw them. It's a huge problem with the console Higurashi sprites, because they fail at subtlety and often look out of place.

I also dislike how they made Lambda's hair really yellow instead of white-ish. She no longer looks like Miyo, Vier or Jestress, even though they are supposed to have the same yellowish white hair color.

And what about the pupils? Many magic characters have shiny dead eyes with no pupils, including Bernkastel and the two traps. The PS3 art feels way too different. Their eyes are too grounded in reality and there's no magic or inhumanity to them.

I call you a nostalgiafag because you refuse to acknowledge ANYTHING the remakes did as being an improvement.

And while some of your arguments have value, others bring to mind the mental gymnastics of that Erikanontrice guy.

They do good things, but the improvements are minor at most. I'm just saying that none of those improvements matter because they come with their own set of problems. The original art is perfect and doesn't ruin any part of the story, so why should I care about a couple of CGs slightly improving an already good scene when a bunch of other scenes are straight up ruined or weakened in exchange?

The original is the intended experience, supervised by Ryuukishi and made with love. The PS3 version improves some things a bit and ruins others. It's an unnecessary rollercoaster of quality and not worth it.

Those are the only ones I hate. The one in EP1 ruins the mood of the scene and is completely unappropiate. It's a weird attempt to mimic the DEEN Higurashifaces, when the original scene was only a bit unsettling because Maria was smiling smugly despite the horrible circumstances. What the fuck were they thinking with that scary ass CG? It doesn't fit at all and gives you the wrong impression of Maria. It's like they were looking at the horrible DEEN anime when they decided to add that in.

The other one is in EP4 when Maria goes nuclear on Rosa. It's just too exaggerated and cringy. Maria overall is pretty infuriating in the PS3 version because they got all her facial expressions wrong, exaggerated them too much, made her way too cute and removed that autistic expressionless aura that she had in the original. The text describes Maria as a child that doesn't show her emotions on her face because she's a total sperg, but the PS3 art completely ignores that and takes too many liberties with her regular sprites.

Sure, I love her cute alternate outfit and all, but those other issues are still garbage and give you the wrong impression of her character.

I don't think Ryuukishi cares too much about the PS3 version getting things wrong, because that version is an inferior cashgrab by its very nature (despite having cool shit like nice CGs and voice acting).

Remember that Higurashi and Umineko's console versions are gutted. Higurashi in particular gets many scenes removed or shortened, while Umineko removes references to alcohol and changes the script so that Kinzo didn't fuck his own daughter. The console versions are censored as fuck and while Ryuukishi did put effort into some stuff (like telling the Beatrice VA the truth), he doesn't care too much about it. So if they get something wrong, it's not like he's gonna jump out to correct them. It's a censored version for non-fans anyway.

Sure, western fans mod those assets into the original VN and aren't affected by the script censorship, but still. In Japan, the console versions are inherently inferior and made without too much regard for the author's intent, that's why some of those mistakes happen. Ryuukishi doesn't care enough about a shitty censored version of his novel to be all perfectionist about Maria's facial expressions.

Any version of Higurashi without Satoko's nude sprite is shit.

It only appears for 5 minutes, but it's a very important sprite. Seeing a main character butt naked is lewd (outside the context of the scene) and only a puritan SJW would dislike it or dismiss it as unimportant. But it also contributes to the drama and realism of the scene, because Satoko is so paranoid and scared that she doesn't care about holding onto a towel to cover her privates. She wants to run with everything she has from the crazy ass possessed Keiichi wielding an axe. It also increases the hopelessness of the situation because the usually smug and proud Satoko is now totally naked like a scared animal, no longer capable of reasoning like a human. This is what this terrifying disease does to a person.

But Ange had black eyes too in the original.

Can that sprite be restored to the Steam version without entirely replacing the towel one? Or would it take some scripting and messing around with the code? Not that it matters anyway because the translation is far from great.

While I agree censorship is terrible in principle, it's worth noting that visual novels already have a stigma as being pornographic, with stuff like WTC being rare exceptions to the rule.

The voices are good, but I like imagining them in my head. I read VNs like books, unless they come with voices originally and it's not something added in some future release. So I don't like reading a good book and having every line of dialog spoken to me out loud. Fuck that.

I also think they take away from the creepy atmosphere in Higurashi. Every time I hear voices in Higurashi it snaps me back to reality and I lose that feeling of paranoia.

If a VN being pornographic makes someone uncomfortable instead of making them want to play it, they are probably complete retards incapable of critical thinking, most likely brainwashed by some form of sjw ideas. How can someone that dumb genuinely enjoy anything even remotely complex?

Keiichi is 16.

Rena is almost 16.

Satoko is almost 12.

Rika is 11.

Irie is... 30-ish.

Takano is 34 because why not. But she's probably a bit younger than that.

Tomitake is in his mid-30s.

Ooishi is 64.

The ages are never stated, but they do mention their birthdays and whether someone is a year older or younger. And if you analyze the Himatsubushi arc, which takes place 5 years earlier, you can find out Mion and Rika's ages by logical deduction.

Umineko is a lot easier to figure out.

Kinzo is in his late 70s. He was in his late 30s during the flashback.

I always liked how the Higurashi sprites had so many different bodies. Every character had at least three different outfits.

The club members had school uniforms, casual clothes and fetish wear for the punishments. On top of that Shmion had the Angel Mort outfit and Satoko had the towel and birthday suit in Tatarigoroshi. Hanyuu also had her own school uniform, which is missing in the PS2 patch and people playing that miss out on it.

Irie has his casual clothes, his coach clothes and his lab coat. Takano has her casual clothes, nurse clothes and nazi clothes. And even Ooishi has an alternate sprite where he's wearing that bathrobe at the end of Himatsubushi. Tomitake also has his casual clothes and military clothes.

There are so many different outfits for each character. Probably because there were so few characters compared to Umineko, so Ryuukishi could draw different outfits for them instead of focusing on drawing new characters from scratch.

Hell, they even had different body poses. At least two for every character. Even people like Irie had different poses depending on whether he was serious or goofing around. In Umineko, he couldn't afford to give so many people different poses, so Battler was permanently stuck with a hand in his pocket.

That's true. I just think the original art is the intended experience and was made with love and passion by the author himself. Surely he knows how to draw his own characters better than some third party artist.

The problem is the lack of subtlety. This is a HUGE issue with the console/MG Higurashi sprites, but it also applies to Umineko to an extent.

Ryuukishi loves to draw vague expressions that appear to be portraying a certain emotion at first glance but can mean something completely different in another context. The other artists often fail to understand this and just copy the original face in their own style with no regard for the subtlety they had. So they end up looking out of place when used in a different context, because they have lost their subtlety and are too inclined to one emotion or another.

If you understad what I mean, you should be able to tell the difference between the faces in the middle of your image. One is vague enough that it doesn't look out of place in different contexts, while the other is too straightforward and looks a bit weird when it's supposed to portray resignation or maturity.

It's not the best example, but take a look at the original Higurashi expressions and you can easily tell when they are vague enough to work in different scenes. Replace them with the console equivalents and they no longer work as they should because they are too exaggerated.
