>>22536776
Sakutaro isn't a handmade toy, it's something that Rosa just bought and said it was handmade.

Beatrice, believing Maria's story that Sakutaro was something handmade by Rosa, claimed that Sakutaro's vessel would never be able to be remade to it's original form, and therefore couldn't be resurrected by magic.

Kawabata had another Sakutaro doll in his room full of knick knacks and fabrics.

Thus, Ange is able to present the new Sakutaro doll to Maria as a 'vessel' to resurrect Sakutaro into. By lying and saying it's the same one she is able to use magic. Beatrice can't refute this point, because by denying the method Ange used she would deny her own magic.

>> No.22538368

>>22538201
The red truth wasn't a believed lie. This would break the basis for the red truth. Maybe Maria/Sayo hadn't acess to the doll's remain. However I can't decide whether Ange found a brand new one or found the old doll. It was hinted in Dawn Rosa and Maria could have gotten up and Maria united with Sakutaro.
I wouldn't apply the broken vase magic on the broken doll magic too readily. Maybe it's because Ange had the chance to find the old Sakotaro. The chapter Ushiromyia Ange the resurrection magic of Ange was shown in a different way. Also, Beatrice spoke of (red) 'That ' in the scene which indicates the doll was indeed the old one.
Maria remembered everything from the doll. Maria did so much with Sakutaro, like eating which would leave marks over time.
Anyway, I believe that Ange found the old one and didn't brought a new vessel.

That's also a valid solution. I'm just pointing out that the red truth confirms that a Sakutaro doll was hand-made by Rosa, and thus the doll Maria had was not mass-produced.

It was pretty obvious in the original too, everyone already figured it back then because Rosa is a liar and selling plush toys is something she could do given her job.

>> No.22539381

>>22539348
Of course I understand the reasoning. There's nothing saying the Sakutaro doll CAN'T be mass-produced. But the red truth here doesn't directly confirm it, and nothing in the source material did. It's an assumption that the reader has to make when there's a much simpler line of reasoning: Rosa remade the doll.

She couldn't say it's the only one in the entire world. I'm pretty sure it's supposed to mean that Rosa's company or whatever ended up making a bunch of them. The one Maria had was handmade by Rosa but then it started getting mass produced or something. Or maybe it's not even mass produced, she just handmade a second one for some reason. There's no reason to conclude that Rosa didn't hand make it when it's literally said in red that she did.

A lot of things that are portrayed are things no one could know, life Ange's private life for example, or stuff about Kasumi. More so, we don't even know how much the forgeries match what we see, it's actually ver unlikely it's an 1:1 scenario.

ERIKANTRICE CHAPTER 7 DAWN OF THE GOLDEN WITCH IS OUT NOW:https://pastebin.com/XVrRMWqS
the lst true chapter is out,guys only one chapter left i am crying.
now i solve all the 6 games without violate any red truths so my theory is completed miss only few bonus parts.
this chapter was very difficult to wrote and maybe there are many grammar error so pls send reports.
thanks for all your support my erikantrice knitgs.

booru:https://erikce.booru.org

for those who do not know erikantrice here is a little summary in 4 points:
1) in all the games the culprits and accomplices are the same.
kanon(yasu)= the true culprit\mastermind(can kill)
george=culprit\co-plotter(can kill)
nanjo,kumasawa and genji=accomplices(cant kill)
2)game 5th and 6th are solved with Erika=Kanon
this is why erika didnt saw kanon's body in the closet
3)yasu isnt a tranny, she is a CUTE TOMBOY so Battler isnt gay.
4)yasu=ikuko so all umineko is the magic version of ikuko wrote mystery novels on rokkenjima so battler could solve them in the hope that his memory would return.

Anyone know where I can find the OG Matsuribayashi?

I mean original sounds, music, art and no translation.
Just the game as it was when it was first released at comiket, unchanged, out of the box.
I already checked out 07th Universe and Nyaa, but the former only has an english patched verison, and the latter has zero seeds.

I just want to read in Japanese and with the original art, but unless I'm just retarded it seems like there's no way of doing that?

Your first mistake was trusting them in the first place.

"Ruin" is very subjective, so yes, they did ruin it. By mere distinction of it being Mangagamer, they ruined it, as they ruin everything they touch.

The Umineko fan translation was good. The new one is more polished but changes some iconic lines from Erika and uses the shitty Mangagamer engine that pastes rain drops onto the backgrounds instead of having a proper rain effect. It hurts the atmosphere a bit.

I have another stupid Ciconia theory!
Humanity is just going around planet to planet destroying it and leaving, it is "inevitable" and the cyclical destruction and rebuilding of society tries to delay it, maybe some things play out the same in these "world histories" and the historical interference (taking out the book of revelations from the biblical canon) is a play from either the group that keeps delaying the end of the world or some other group that wants to stop the cycle of destruction.
The factory we saw was inside a spaceship directed to the current planet, it safely preserved the brains before reaching the destination.
At some point they'll open the door that leads to the future and try to bait us into thinking that the world and humanity is dead, but that's not the case, because new planet and new history!

No, this is far too simple. Ciconia is about God and how ancient alien theory buttfucks religion. Ryukishi says fuck religion and that you should stop being a fag or else aliens will cum and spread the sprouts of war. The three kings are actually a bunch of Christian incels obsessed with the teaching of Jehovah's Witness. They are the real aliens and by masturbating to the words of God through the bible, they will finish what Mario started and bring dignity to the world. The next great flood will be a flood of semen that will repopulate the earth and give it new life. The sprouts of war is a metaphor for this!!!

The factory is representative of how Mangagamer handles their translations. They butcher everything (like the factory), take a long ass fucking time to complete the process (like the factory), never listening to the outcry of the fandom (like the factory). Ryukishi is based as fuck for giving us this elegantly hidden commentary on the shittiness of the localization process. Fuck mangagamer, the factory, and Meow because I want to make her my cumdumpster. Only speed reader fags would deny how absolutely based this line of reasoning is. Get on my level anon.

I've seen a lot of rankings of Umineko episodes in order of best to worst, but I've never seen people rank the Higurashi chapters. How would you rank them?

I also have never gotten why episode 1 and 2 of Umineko are consistently ranked at the bottom. I loved those episodes and have probably reread them the most. I hear pacing mentioned a lot but those are the closest to your typical mystery novels in terms of pacing and structure. Do the majority of umifags just have adhd or autism?

Her murder plans were extremely malleable. There were several contingencies depending on how everyone reacted and moved around the island. They didn't have to be extremely specific in regards to personal actions either since the bribes were mostly faction-based going by Kinzo's children and their direct families.

Only if you believe Bernkastel from Umineko is directly connected to Higurashi and not just a nod.

Bernkastel is the Rika that gave up in Rei most likely. The Umineko manga explicitely shows panels of Higurashi with Hanyuu when Bern is mentioning her past and the game she was locked in. That connection means the meta world actually exists within the universe of WTC and isn't just a cool story telling device for Umineko or just a part of Tohya's/Ange's mental journey.

I see, that's a good point. Then Ange's absence in the bottles is still problematic.
On the other hand, if I remember correctly, Ange was given one of those bank cards with money just like Nanjo's and Kumasawa's sons, wasn't she? Wouldn't that imply Beatrice knew she was going to survive then?

The impression I got was of a murder mystery fan who was so fucked up in the head that they spent months and months and maybe years devising scenarios for every possible contingency. I think there's plenty of room for 3-5 bottles of "Ange got sick", as long as we accept a hypothetical two or three dozen other "Ange didn't get sick" bottles, along with "George got sick" and "Maria fell off the boat and drowned" and "Rudolph's car broke down" and so on.

Umineko makes it pretty ambiguous I think. You could think the metaworld doesn't really exist but you might just as well say 1998 is as fictional as Beatrice's catbox.
I believe that, at the very least, insisting it's 100% fake and just an entertaining way of showing Tohya/Ange stuff is kind of... extreme. Not to mention it impoverishes the story. First of all, it doesn't even really "fit" as well as some people make it seem. And it makes a lot of metaworld development that hardly has an actual parallel in "real life" pretty much pointless. Like, what's the point of Bern and Lambda at all? Or Beato's death and rebirth? Will and Lion? Erika and Dlanor?
I find it easier to believe the metaworld "exists", meaning that it exists as its own thing and at the same time has parallels to the "real world" and indirect connections with it. That's the reason Ange's interaction with it is so erratic and Tohya/Ikuko seem to have something to do with the developments. Although how much is hardly confirmed.
I think umineko ramblings (not sure if that's what it was called in tumblr) has a post trying to figure out the levels of reality and umineko and defending the existence of the meta.

Its states that the bottles were abanonded just a few days before the incident. I doubt she spent years, let along several months writing tons of these mini mystery novel fanfics and then tossed dozens of bottles all at once. She was planning for this one upcoming occassion, so she most likely just wrote up a couple scenarios of how things could go down. When she resigned herself to a course of action, she tossed the message bottles (3 were found including confession, we know there are at least 4). They were her last will and testament if you will in the form of a nod to And Then There Were None. They contained who she was.

Might as well say she saved up hundreds of message bottles. One where she fails and gets killed herself. One where battler commits suicide. One where Rosa got married to a guy with his own children and they came too.

I think I'm thinking of the following lines. I may have found the wrong lines when looking for what I'm searching for, but this is Beatrice speaking to Ange

>"As I was working out the details for my game against you, I began creating those tales along the way. Once I realized that I could create endless different tales out of the same game board, it really started to get fun...!"

and then, Bern mocking,

>Hey, are you watching? Clair? ......You wanted to hide this truth too, didn't you? For fun, you wrote several cat box tales...and planned to seal them in message bottles like the end of a mystery novel you loved.

That doesn't sound like there are a small number of message bottles that contain someone's personality. It sounds like somebody who made lots of plans, and then realized the planning was at least as interesting as the execution.

Oh, I'm somebody different. I agree that it's very clear that Ange was not handled correctly in the beginning games, and there's really no way of correcting it (the bottles being scattered before Ange's illness was known kills that). I just think that one specific part of the narrative, the part about the number of message bottles, is ambiguous.

While we're on the subject, I was really pissed off by "The fifth curse was me" in Higurashi. Whenever I tried to come up with a tentative explanation, I couldn't figure out how the later parts of that made sense. Even knowing the truth now, and assuming that a shadowy organization follows Keiichi around and makes everything come true to preserve the secret, why leave him alive?

There's plenty of other bullshit in the answer for Higurashi, but at least there's effort spent in the narrative for most of it. This is just pure coincidence.

Probably just add in another episode or two of Battler vs Beato and then following Ryukishi's route. The extra games would just be filler I guess, but like that other anon said, Battler and Beato playing Ace Attorney was really the most enjoyable part of the VN. Along with seeing what new meta characters would pop up each game, learning more about the seventeen piece's backstories, and trying to figure out how each murder could be done alongside Battler.

I'd probably also make sure to show what 100% actually happened on Rokkenjima (for brainlets like me), as well as what really happened on the military base, since the end of episode 7 implied Kinzo was lying to Leon and he wanted to get the Italian's gold, but that would have to mean a bunch of other events went down differently too, right?

>> No.22573199

>>22573146
Imo the ending of ep8, while thematically justified, is too utopian to be emotionally believable. The characters have grown and formed strong bonds of trust with each other, and so have escaped the particular tragedies they previously fell prey to, but the more abstract philosophical problems of inherited sin, the possibility of unfortunate coincidences, failures and betrayals has not thereby been resolved.
Which is probably why Ryukishi wrote Saikoroshi-hen. The dichotomy between the broken worlds of Hinamizawa 1-8 and the "world without sin" Rika is given a chance to see serves to justify the imperfect as the condition for the possibility of deepening the connections between people and making their existence meaningful. Rika's choice is also a choice for the reader, to reject a utopian conclusion and make peace with the idea that Rika and her friends won't live happily ever after, that they will have new challenges and problems to overcome, and that these are trials they may very well fail, that the shared humanity they have gained is something they will have to continue to protect and renew.

EP3 is written by Ikuko, just like EP4. That's basic lore, anon. Very basic lore. I'm sure it's in the wiki somewhere, it has been explicitly told in EP6.

Now, as to why Ikuko knows about Maria's bunnies, she could be a witch and used magic for it, or she's Yasu. Unfortunately most anons firmly believe Ikuko is a witch that has used her magic powers to write EP3 and EP4, so what can you do. It's magic. Can't and won't explain shit. She knows of Maria's bunnies because magic.

I fully expected for it to end with battler going back in time to prevent any more Rokkenjima tragedies, kinda like in higurashi. How it actually ends is more fitting for the story and I am overall satisfied, but by the end of Umineko I couldn’t care less who yasu is, or what really happened in ange’s timeline, because I was more invested in the meta world and what battler and beato were doing

It makes so much sense - Ryukishi kept the answer because money was the answer all along. You just need to give things people were expecting and ta-daa they feel statisfied.
Ange should have written some random shit in a diary, put the label "Eva's diary" on it, sell it on an auction. That should have been the truest ending of all - the magic trick ending.

Magic trick -it surpasses every know trick in the human world and every know magic in the demons world.

Remove the entirety of everything in the 1998 plot. Ange just wouldnt exist. Her entire existence is shoehorned and dumb. The baby switching, her not appearing in the bottles, nobody mentioning her till way into the vn, etc...

I'd remove the whole "It's just books" shit by removing Tohya. The meta is real, the gameboards are fragments of different possibilities of what actually happened. Ikuko, Bern, and Lambdawg want their share of fun. The cost of Beatrice becoming a witch is that she has to stop Battler from discovering the truth--and by proxy understanding her. If he wins, theyre both "killed" in the meta and her existance goes no further than it does in any of the fragments. It's hell for her. She has to become something that Battler hates, she has to hide herself from him. The best she can hope for is to enjoy their ace attoryney back and forth. If she wins? There is no winning. Winning implies an end. She's there to provide entertainment to Bern, Lambdawg, and Ikuko. As long as theyre entertained, there is no end. Who knows what theyll do when they grow bored. Will Ikuko be merciful enough to place them in a fragment before the incident takes place so they can prevent it and live happily ever after? Will the witches simply snap them out of existance? Will they come up with some other sick game for them to play?

Maybe Maria did show Yasu her bunnies at some point, but why then did she choose to link them to rifles? And why do they only have a role in later episodes?

The message bottle and the gameboard are not the same thing and don't exactly correlate 1:1.

First, EP3 isn't a message bottle. Second, if the presence of magic isn't hinted at all in the writing that Tohya is reading, it raises a serious concern about why he's imagining that there's magic. And third, the fantasy scenes are directly addressed in Our Confession, where it's explained how and why the writer chooses to show them. All this points to them being real. I don't think the meta commentary scenes are in the text, but the fantasy scenes certainly are.

The Beatrice/Battler dynamic in the meta world did not actually depict what Yasu thought was going to happen, but more so what she wanted to happen, I think. Battler working through the mysteries that she presented in order to come to the truth. A lot of stuff that is depicted which Tohya couldn't have known about can be explained by Ikuko having the knowledge from reading the confession bottle, as well as the meta layer blending in with what is written in the forgeries in the case of the fantasy scenes.

After thinking about it for a bit I actually do think that the fantasy scenes were in some form depicted in the message bottles/forgeries. I think you can tell that there's a difference between the way Yasu wrote some of her fantasy scenes and the way Tohya/Ikuko did theirs. I think the episode 2 fantasy scenes for the most part focused on Yasu and had a massive self-loathing bent to them which you never really saw as heavily in episode 3 and beyond. I think you could argue that was due to the authorship switch

The problem of what exactly the meta world is or how it comes to exist is really explained once we know about Tohya. I think the meta world is created by him as soon as he finishes reading the first bottle and realizes that he's Battler. And from a meta perspective, when we have Virgilia explaining to Battler why fantasy scenes are in the story, it can mean one of two things: Ikuko wrote the entire scene and is either admitting that she's Yasu or is just trying to get Battler to think, or Battler wrote the scene and is trying to figure out why Yasu wrote them. It's really significant that Virgilia only explains this once they start writing because it shows that it's there to help
Battler remember.

All of the meta scenes represent the internal struggle within Tohya.

Beatrice represents:
The satisfaction of solving a mystery
The motivation for the killing

Battler represents:
Reluctance to have bad memories of loved ones

Ironically this whole situation is basically a mirror to Yasu's own creation of multiple personalities to get through her life. In the end, Battler is able to synthesize these aspects of himself, remembering fully what happened but telling Ange that she's better off not knowing. And it's definitely true that you see Beatrice's character shift over the course of the story as the writer changes and Tohya's feelings and memories of Yasu change.

The Chiester's was introduced to represent loveless/heartless murder. Hence, 556's (kokoro = heart) death. That's why in EP4 they were used.

But then, Ryu realized by reading some forums, the majority of the readers believe in the fantasy part of the story. So, he make it much easier by introducing Virgilia instead who explained to us how to interpret the fantasy ; as he said, he just change spot light without changing the story.

Once he was in a quasi-comfortable kneel, he brought the fly swatter hard down onto her exposed cheeks. She yelped in pleasure, and pushed her arse skywards. Good choice, the fly swatter stays in the bedroom.

A few minutes in and Keiichi realised something.

The fly swatter. It swats flies, not just girls’ arses. And what do flies eat?

Dog shit. That’s right, dog shit.

Oh great. Now there’s second or third hand dog shit on her arse. Fantastic.

He brought the swat down again, making sure to avoid any areas his face might be later on. He wouldn’t want dog shit in his face.

But hang on, why not?

How unhygienic could it be, compared to licking his girlfriend? He’d lick her arse, in fact, he’d actively enjoy it and so would she. How much worse could it be to lick a dogs arse? Think about that for a second. People wouldn’t eat a cheeseburger that had been on the floor next to a dog turd, but they’d lick someones arse? No, no, there’s something wrong with that.

In the heat of the moment, people would do some disgusting things with each other, much worse than licking a dog’s arse. A dog’s arse would be… well it would be a walk in the park in comparison (though you may be barred from the park afterwards).

He realised he was on autopilot now, his arms stroking, spanking and teasing Rena, his erection long since gone, retracted up inside him like a cat’s claw. But he was wondering how much worse it would be. You’d have to lift the tail up, that would be an obstacle. But then they don’t have cheeks to contend with.

He shouldn’t have a problem with it, but somehow it repulsed him. Why? Why was licking a human arse not repulsive, but a dog’s one was?

But then you go down that rabbit hole, that question as old as time itself; how many human arses would you lick? Not many in all honesty, you have to be quite intimate with them and the mood has to be right — not circumstances that occur with a dog, really. But if it did, it would still repulse him. Why?

Is it the species thing? If he were blindfolded and licked an anus, without knowing who or what it belonged to, would he be able to tell? If the blindfold came off, and Satoko was in front of him pulling her skirt back down— it doesn’t have to be her, any girl he found attractive — he’d laugh, shrug it off. But if the blindfold came off and there was a dog, say a Border Terrier, with a young, disinterested woman holding it aloft and a guy holding it’s tail up, a guy of about 42 — clean shaven but with a look in his eye that suggests he’s had a rough life — well in that scenario he’d be sick. Why? What is it about an attractive human’s a…

“What are you thinking, Keiichi-kun?” asked Rena.

“Erm…”

When Ange met "Tohya" in EP6, who was actually either Ikuko alone or some sort of magical representation of both Ikuko and Tohya (EP6 1998 is really ambiguous), she said "Tohya" had written EP3-5, and "Tohya" presented her EP6 too. This really doesn't tell us anything about their process of writing.
The manga shows Ikuko having found Confessions. Now this has been discussed as Ikuko being Yasu and writting it herself, Ikuko not being Yasu but having "solved" EP1-2 and writing it herself, Ikuko actually finding it and showing it to Tohya afterwards, Ikuko finding it and now showing it to Tohya directly. These are all possible.
If we take EP7 as kind-of-the-truth, it's also easy to see in EP3-4 certain parts of Prime, mixed with Shkanontrice stuff. EP3 revolves around Eva being the culprit (partially), as Tohya probably believed after knowing she was still alive, and also probably what he thought at the island after watching dead bodies of everyone sans Eva. And then EP4 has the trial thing going on, and that's what Rudolf and Kyrie use to bait George and Jessica.
Thematically though, and I'm saying this as someone who really doubts the meta is just a weird representation of Tohya/Ange's struggles, it would be dumb for Tohya to already know about Yasu (by Ikuko showing him Confessions or telling him about her reasonings). If that was the case, he wouldn't need to understand Beatrice, so Meta Battler wouldn't have any reasons to fight, learn about the truth and make his own game to prove it. It's also been said in the manga explicitly that Ikuko is the one that writes, and in the novel they made together she wrote his ideas while changing some things.
Is it a stretch to assume Ikuko was the one who knew about Beatrice and Tohya was the one who knew about Prime and the Ushiromiya family, mansion, etc, so they supposedly wrote his memories while at the end Ikuko, by herself, ended up introducing Shkanontrice for Tohya to solve it? She then might have changed her approach to the problem, introduced Erika (remember the line goes Featherine -> Bern -> Erika, so Erika ends up being Ikuko's piece too) and so, Battler finally understood the "truth" in EP5. Of course, it wasn't actually the truth, it was just the truth about Beatrice. So then I guess Tohya wrote EP6 to "prove" he "knew" the "truth", but he of course realizing the cold truth is way more important than understanding Beatrice and his family and remembering them as the good people they sometimes were, being this the reason why Dawn was supposed to be a fake murder party. And maybe it was just that in Tohya's version.

Virgilia's lessons to Beato about magic in Episode 3, and again with Maria to Ange in Episode 4. Both show that "magic isn't just some evil force, but rather a way of coping with life's problems in a way to find happiness. Beato was showing sympathetic aspects early on, most notably in stuff like the north wind and the sun, but also in her interactions with Maria and in her talk with Battler about humans and empty promises. Jessica's talk about creating another self that lets her enjoy her life outside the mansion is basically her own form of "white magic" even if she doesn't put such a name to it. Battler's relationship with Beato changes drastically from Episode 1 to 4, with him going from pure hatred to a desire to understand her and end her suffering.There are several other examples but those are just the first few that come to mind.

Stuff like that just feels like people who can't appreciate a story with a lot of symbolism. They need things in the story to be "real," forgetting that a story is inherently fictional. Why does it matter if events within the story are later shown to be fictional when the entire thing is already fake? In my opinion, the stories being representations of Tohya's psyche give additional depth because it allows the reader to analyze absolutely everything they see from a new perspective that wouldn't otherwise exist.

But the meta IS real. The fact that Battler's struggle can serve as a metaphor for Tohya's doesn't change that. The manga even shows the "dead" personality of Battler as the one that enters the meta world and battles with Beato, while the memories of Battler that Tohya regained remain as a separate entity until he finally lays them to rest. Stuff like Bernkastel and Lambdadelta can't be chalked up as something written by tohya either since they clearly exist outside the realm of the gameboard.

I don't know, it just really feels like the sort of thing someone would say who's never read a story with an even partially unreliable narrator. And I know someone may break out Higurashi here, but you eventually learn the whole truth in Higurashi. In a story narrated by an imperfect narrator, the focus is always primarily on what you're told says about the narrator. How they choose to perceive things and inform the reader is an important aspect of the story, and arguably provides a greater richness than a story with an omniscient narrator. It can also be easy for a reader to fall into the trap of thinking that "everything could be unreliable = everything is fake." There are many straightforward scenes in the story that no one would have any reason to lie about, such as the scenes at the start of EP2.

Killing off her ability to trust and connect with others and going full intellectual rapist is better than her reconciling with her past and moving on with her life in order to find new happiness?

Also, the issue is that you treat umineko as a puzzle instead of a story, compromising story elements in whatever ways help push your solution. Yes, Umineko is a mystery and we as readers have an obligation to try and solve it. But it's also a story with deep themes and complex characters that you're meant to empathize with as you come to understand them. That, in my mind, is more important than solving the various closed room mysteries. Kyrie summed this up perfectly way back in Episode 1.

>what parts?
You have chosen to ignore any scene in the story that isn't witnessed by a detective. This is foolish because R07 included each scene for a reason, and even established the rules for how a fantasy scene can be portrayed. (You can't just show absolutely anything. Fantasy scenes can't be total lies unless someone is about to die.) These scenes give a deeper meaning to the story and inform the reader of things that the detective may not be able to witness, such as the thoughts of a character.

And I know you're going to say that "My explanation solves the mystery without using fantasy scenes." And my answer is that I simply don't care. Why should I care that your explanation solves the game without using fantasy scenes? How does that improve one's enjoyment or understanding of the work as a whole when it's totally understandable without using your explanation?

No part of the magic ending implies Ange hasn't accepted the family's death or grown up.

No part of the magic ending implies that Ange doesn't get the Ushiromiya assets back. In fact, she does get a large chunk of them, which allows her to live in peace. She just doesn't manage the business anymore.
>ange who loses all her heritage, continues to believe in magic at 30 or 40 yo, writes books for children and is alone without a husband.
If you believe that Ange, Battler, and Yasu literally believe in magic, you've fundamentally misunderstood the story.

>>22581627
Not all fantasy scenes are meta. A fantasy scene is simply one which the detective hasn't witnessed. For example, the EP3 story of Beatrice dying is a fantasy scene whose contents were later confirmed in red. It's still a fantasy scene. This scene is important because it lets the reader know information with certainty that Battler can't have. Other scenes, like the EP2 opening scenes with George and Jessica, and Natsuhi's conversation with Kinzo in EP1, convey truth even if the detective didn't witness them. The scene with Natsuhi is also very relevant to >>22581564 this poster's point. Natsuhi is simply imagining that Kinzo would trust her. But without this scene, we can never truly know what she thought. A detective can never truly know what a character is thinking. Even they would need the red truth to confirm it. By ignoring fantasy scenes that give insight into characters, you are ignoring the truth, which is a contradiction in your goal.

For example, for natsuhi without love we could call her a woman for whom reputation is everything and she is ready to do any kind of crime to save her reputation.

Then I no longer understand your position on fantasy scenes. First you're saying you can solve the mystery without them, and now you're saying you're supposed to use them. Which is it?

On this note, I'm just going to leave an example of why the fantasy scenes are important.
Imagine if we could ignore the scene in EP1 where George proposes to Shannon and gives her a ring. It's simply fantasy and has no relationship to reality. Now, let's fast forward to the first twilight. George asks his father if Shannon's corpse has a ring on her finger and he says yes. Later, George tells Battler that he proposed to Shannon, but Battler never witnessed it, so it's unconfirmed.
In this situation, it would be a valid theory to say that George killed Shannon because he proposed to her, and she said no, because she had already been married to someone else. He simply pretended that the ring was his to fool the rest of the family into believing that he would never kill Shannon. We see in this fantasy scene that George and Shannon genuinely loved each other, that George truly proposed, and that Shannon wearing the ring on her finger in the shed means that she accepted his proposal. But all of these events could be twisted to mean something totally different without that one scene that the detective never witnessed, but was confirmed via a fantasy scene.

This. It's always been a metaphor for how one views the world rather than an actual act of fantasy. The whole point is that you're supposed to accept the truth without letting it control your outlook on life. For example, Ange must accept the truth that her family is dead, but she can take comfort in knowing that they would have wanted her to live on and find new happiness. She must accept that the ones who committed the murders were her parents, but she can still try to understand the circumstances behind it and continue to love the parents that raised her.

Whether it be competing to see who can make the other cum first, or trying to make the other give in to their base desires for mockery. Whatever it is, For example, Erika might dig her palm into battler's groin, her dexterous fingers slithering around to firmly grasp the bulge in his pants while laughing at him for being so easily turned on. On Battler's end, he'd bring one of his hands round the back of her neck before plunging past her neckline and down the front of her top. His large hand would quickly find it's way into one of the cups of Erika's bra, his fingers curling in between velvety fabric and soft flesh as he proudly grasps one of her bare boobs, tenderly kneading it as he snidely questions her about how it feels to be the least endowed woman on the island.

Because Ikuko uses her as a tool to force Tohya to try to remember the whodunnit. I've explained it to you before. Ikuko is trying to pry Tohya's memories out of him, even if he doesn't want to remember. This is why Erika is obsessed with mysteries, why she's cruel, and why she calls herself an intellectual rapist. She is literally raping Tohya's mind and forcing him to show her that he understands the truth. You are looking at Erika like a real character with real feelings.

so why bad people decide to die for yasu?

>Ikuko wants Battler to say, "No, it wasn't Natsuhi, it was ...!"
eva help yasu during the murder so is an accomplice like in 3 games but not in the second.
I say, if you do not want to use the same culprits in every game at least change them, but shkanontrice can not do it, can not give a nice explanation to the mistery, an offense to the reader is the only way to make it work

>This only occurs in the story written by Yasu. Again, not evidence of it being possible in reality.

but those stories had to be different ways of implementing the murders.
but let's assume it is true, the world outside read those stories, so they asked questions of the other servants, so for them, for all the other servants kanon and shannon were different people.
I find it strange that none of them said that kanon had never been to the orphanage and that one day it appeared on the island.

Not really true. It's hinted that Eva and Hideyoshi were capable to murder. Their plan backfired because the culprit surprised them in the guest room. You only followed Yasu's writing rules. It doesn't mean she is unflexible and didn't accept any offers of the bribed adults like helping to kill. Yasu has to silence possible traitors.
You must admit she should considered more reliable options and backup plans for some tricks. George was nice enough to ask if Shannon is among the dead people.

Thanks. Even if we disagree on some things, I'm happy that I found people that dislike the manga.

Well, I'm still not entirely sure that Ikuko is Yasu. It's possible, but I'll have to see when I reread it. Assuming Ikuko isn't Yasu, she just wants Tohya to remember the murderer so he'll tell her. And assuming Ikuko is Yasu, then there are still some explanations. Maybe Ikuko actually wanted to make Tohya forget that she was the killer by leading him to the wrong answer. Maybe she wanted to create an interesting mystery for him to solve, so she also didn't use the same murderer as real life so that he couldn't simply remember who did it and get the answer. Or maybe she still holds a grudge against Battler and wants to punish Tohya by confusing him. These are just theories.

>police should have found out that kanon didn't exist.
Maybe they didn't think to confirm that Kanon was a real person before the orphanage closed. I don't think it would be a big priority for the police to find out the entire history of every person on the island. They may have just taken it at face value that Kanon existed until it was too late to investigate. Upon becoming the family head, it's also possible that Yasu used her authority to influence Fukuin to put Kanon into their records. Even if the police found records, no employees may have been left to testify.

this is the base of human civilization
arguing toghether made us discover new things.
i really think that arguing toghether inprove our theories

>so she also didn't use the same murderer as real life so that he couldn't simply remember who did it and get the answer. Or maybe she still holds a grudge against Battler and wants to punish Tohya by confusing him.
but there is an important thing the boat scene.
yasu tried to kill herself but battler saved her at the cost of losing his memory.
imagine the guilt of yasu after that, once again her actions had hurt another person.
she wanted to punish herself not battler, that's why it's unlikely she would lie to battler, she wanted his memory come back after that she would end her life.
The difference between the ending trick and the ending magic is that Ange manages to convince ikuko to forgive herself while in the trick ending ikuko confesses the murders and abandoning battler.

>Even if the police found records, no employees may have been left to testify.
all possible
but we're talking about the greatest mystery in the world.
the whole world tried to give an explanation and in the first 2 games kanon always disappeared.
he was the most suspicious, have been very strange that no one would seek news about him or questioned his colleagues

Is there any evidence for this?

As for Kanon, I really don't know. Maybe they did seek out the people from the orphanage and ask about Kanon, and maybe they did say that they can't recall a child by that name. But what would the investigators make of this? You certainly can't use that alone to conclude that Kanon is an imaginary person created by Shannon. It could mean anything.

>Is there any evidence for this?
ikuko wanted to confess, she couldn't stand the pain of murder guilt anymore.
the press conference where she wanted to reveal the truth about rokkenjima murder was actually the place where she would confess everything.
If ange choose the magic ending ikuko stops the conference instead with the trick ending ikuko confesses everything.

>you certainly can't use that alone to conclude that Kanon is an imaginary person created by Shannon. It could mean anything.
yeah i know this isnt a truth argument just is strange that nobody suspected kanon if there's no proof of his birth.

That's an interesting possibility.
