since the thread is dead i won't feel bad about asking stupid questions.
So when kinzo started to get loans from the loaners so he can get funds, he gave one of them a gold bar to basically prove that he can pay them off if he wouldn't have any returns, but when kyrie sees the gold she says it's worthless because it's unmarked. basically in it's current state it's worthless why exactly did it work for kinzo ?, if the gold was worthless in the state it was in why did it get accepted as a compensation for the loaners

>> No.22961195

The gold would never be "worthless", but the difficulty liquidating it would make it very hard to use without proper connections. These big-name business investors that Kinzo talked with probably had the connections needed to liquidate some mystery gold.

Well...
I may be wrong but as far as I know it's only illegal when you upload something to the Internet. So it would be illegal if you were using a p2p network like BitTorrent. If you only download it from a website like erogedownload, for your own use and not spread it any further then you are not commiting a crime.

I like mystery, but Kara no Shoujo was just too gore for my taste. And also, the h-scenes seemed to come out of nowhere. Like
>go to the place with dead bodies
>you fuck the doctor
I doubt you can find anything I would like, but I also enjoyed Danganronpa. Maybe it's just mystery I like, without the whole "oh yeah and they got tortured and she got her face sliced open and LOOK NOW, IN SLOW MOTION".
I could stomach it in Higurashi and Umineko because it was told but not showed, but in Katawa Shoujo, just no.

that's 4, it's the shortest chapter and definitely the worst. it's not really that important, but it does set up a critical part of the ending to the series.
you probably could skip it but it's like half the length of the other chapters so if you're gonna dedicate 80 hours to something you may as well read it too.

for erikantrice is:

-the smug of ikuko is equal to beatrice smug
-ikuko know everything about rokkenjima
-ikuko helped battler without a real reason
-ikuko said :i never read something didnt written by me.
-during press conference is imply that ikuko wanted to confess everything.
image the scene:
>journalist: so who is the culprit of rokkenjima murder case?
>ikuko:the culprit is......ME
FUCKING PERFECT

-then with ikuko is yasu we can total eliminate magic from umineko
all umineko is just the magic version of her wrote stories about rokkenjima to made battler solved them in the hope to get his memory back.

and the last thing with ikuko=yasu we have a good ending:
battler after years finnally remember her.

Rich woman who loves mystery novels, is secluded from the world, is rich but her family is nowhere to be seen, decides to adopt Battler (instead of, you know, handing him to the authorities) and writes together with him mystery novels and then forgeries of the Rokkenjima massacre. It really does sound like Sayo, if you put it like that. More than that, a random character with all these characteristics is slightly dumb, knowing Sayo already exists (or existed). Not like adopting new personalities (and witches forms) is a new thing for her.
The supposed connection between meta stuff and the "real world" also implies Ikuko has to know the truth while Battler doesn't, since EP3 and EP4 include Shkanontrice, but Battler only reaches the truth in EP5. Manga has that Confessions of the Golden Witch stuff, but something that convenient, really?
Ikuko could had also written EP5 alone (hence Erika's introduction, who is the self insert of her cat), with Tohya reaching the truth after reading it (the tea party). Then EP6 would be Tohya's work alone, understanding who Ikuko is (was) and allowing her "resurrection".
Also, Battler "dying" but not actually dying and Ange "dying" but not actually dying, at least opens us the possibility of Beatrice "dying" but not actually dying, since they are the three MCs aren't they. The final scene (Battler and Beato in the boat) could be easily interpreted that way. Battler says he won't let her die, after all. The manga scene with Beatrice in front of a Battler without memories fits too well with Ikuko finding Tohya too.
There are some other circunstancial stuff anons point from time on time. I don't like italian anon's take on it in general (nor his nitpicking of screenshots), but I think he said something about how Ikuko says to Ange she never read something not written by herself. Which really fits with how, even if she knows a lot of mystery books, maybe "Ikuko", the new persona, never read something not written by herself after all.
Pros: the "real world" part of the story and its connection to the meta stuff (talking about Tohya/Ikuko's writing) is way more easily understandable that in other theories, it gives us sort of a happy ending, and it does has some clues pointing at it.
Cons: not sure how Featherine actions fit in all of this (although I guess getting to know so much about Sayo might be a clue too), and some people think Sayo not dying is out of character and ruins the message.
There's also the "weird timing" between Battler drowning and Ikuko finding him being already another person with a car and a mansion and all, but we really don't know enough about the circunstances, in my opinion. Battler could have been in coma for years for all we know. As for the money, it's not THAT farfetched that she had some properties or something already bought just in case as some people think. I mean, Sayo DID have a boat with gold in it as an escape route. Why would she need those if she wasn't at the very least considering the option of escaping together with Battler (or George or Jessica) alone? If it was just about someone surviving the explosion, Kuwadorian exists, after all.

Rewrite is fantastic. I hope you enjoy the rest of it. I didn't like Terra the first time I read it, but on a reread I thought it was an excellent conclusion. Lucia's route has some of the themes in Ciconia, but it also has that Umineko mystery feel, especially at the beginning. I see it as kind of a transitional work for him. That being said, I liked Lucia's route a lot more than Ciconia phase 1.

Being the youngest doesn't really matter among the aunts. They're all finished growing regardless of age. I'd wager the stakes are at least a tad larger than her, but nor much, especially given how all the maids they were based off of apeared to have Shannon-tier busts in some versions.

so in a mystery for discover the truth you must use external source?

kanon and george culprit is the only theory you can discover by reading only the first 4 games in no way you can discover kanon=shannon without reading chiru (tell me where is love in gohda accomplice for money no riddle about that. we saw kumasawa and nanjo money, genji love for kinzo but nothing for gohda, just you need to put gohda for confirm rosa culprit theory in ep2)
.
then without erika culprit ep 5th and 6th arent mistery(o yes everything we so is a lie, so maria is the culprit, can be is all a battler's illusion even what the detective saw and said).

>>22972839
Personally, I find Ikuko=Sayo potentially fitting with the totally confirmed stuff, so I don't see it contradicting the "canon". This isn't Rosatrice or Erikantrice, and Ryukishi is purposefully vague about Ikuko, so I think most people who believe in this just think it fits and that it was just not a subject touched upon explicitly, like the (way more obvious of course) fact that Sayo is biologically male. Not explicitly confirmed, but everything points to it.

The golden truth is consensus. You can use it to announce the testimony of everyone present.

This. Ange basically uses the gold truth to revive everyone at the end of EP8 after they beat the shit out of Bernkastel. She doesn't actually use any "gold text" because she doesn't need to announce it out loud to refute anyone. She doesn't care what anyone thinks, she uses it on herself.

I always liked how EP3's opening scene made you imagine Beatrice's backstory.

Like, it totally seemed like kid Beatrice was a young blond princess living in a fairy tale mansion with her grandfather (the previous king?) and several servants, one of which was a witch that helped her out. And this entire flashback was taking place in some random fragment where Beatrice was born, a totally separate time, place and UNIVERSE from Rokkenjima.

It made the sea of fragments seem even more endless than Higurashi made it out to be. It could also include fantasy realms and any sort of universe you could imagine.

This always seemed obvious to me, I don't know why so many people took issue with Will, Dlanor, the Chiesters, the idealized and totally false "Lion", Zepar and Furfurt, etc, being trapped in the island with everyone else.

Sure, Lambda and Bern are their own independent beings. But just like Beatrice's backstory was made up on the spot by Yasu, things like Dlanor's "heaven", the factory where the chiesters come from or Zepar and Furfur's supposed long history of overseeing love duels... all of those things were part of the fiction. Ronove is suposed to have a long history of serving witches before Beatrice, but it's just fiction. In the end, he is nothing more than one of Beatrice's creations, given a backstory and life as part of the catbox. He isn't actually real in a meta sense, and neither are Will or Dlanor.

That's why those characters are trapped in the island in EP8, facing erasure along with everyone else. They are much less "real" than the voyagers or even Beatrice/Battler.

Maybe Ciconia isn't doing so well because it was mediocre and overpriced. 40 USD for 14 hours is too much. Little Busters is 6-7 times as long for 35. If you want a more recent VN, Summer Pockets is 45 for about 40 hours. Both of them are highly rated, too. Maybe Ciconia will get great later, but the first episode was nowhere near as good as Higurashi's, Umineko's, or even Higanbana's.

Remembering this stuff makes me wish the fanbase stopped trying to twist the intended solution with stupid theories and actually discussed the LORE behind Beatrice. Not her real origin or anything, but the things she wanted us to believe at first.

I wish the fandom didn't get so obsessed with searching for alternate solutions to an already solved puzzle and instead attempted to understand and make some sense of the fantasy side.

Sure, Chiru is all about the mystery genre and shit, which is supposed to guide you in the right direction and hint that this is all fiction within fiction, a mystery book written by Tohya.

But Beato's original 4 games had a charm to them that neither Lambda nor Battler could replicate. They were BELIEVABLE as fantasies and the magical world depicted in them made a lot of sense. When Gaap talked about shopping for clothes in Hell, I could imagine that and believe that such a place could exist, if the whole magic explanation Beatrice proposed was actually real. It wasn't that ridiculous, it was your typical fantasy fare involving demons and witches.

I really enjoy that stuff. Part of the reason Beatrice is such an enjoyable character is because she has this long thousand year old history where she traveled the endless fragments and had countless adventures before meeting Kinzo. That shit may be all fake, but it's just as important as her "real" backstory. It's what gives the character life and makes the fantasy believable.

Seriously, the fantasy in Umineko is pretty fascinating and it would be great if people tried to connect it all together into a proper lore, instead of arguing about the mystery solutions or the authorship theory metaphors for the hundredth time.

The first one is the least obvious, but I believe it means that, had the gameboard's story actually continued, had Kinzo's corpse been exposed to the family, everyone in the parlor would've "agreed" that it was Kinzo's corpse without requiring absolute proof. Either because they believe a corpose with six toes can't possibly be anyone else but Kinzo, or because they are all part of a conspiracy to frame Natsuhi with the help of Yasu, who would've told them the truth about Kinzo and how to use it to fuck with Natsuhi. Either way, they would all agree that it is indeed Kinzo.

You could say this about Higurashi too. Every arc has its own "truth" at first glance.

For example, if you take Onikakushi as a standalone story, it's a creepy tale about a dude moving to a rural village and making friends with the local girls, who are secretly part of a horrifying village-wide conspiracy and are actually planning to murder him for knowing too much. Their friendly attitude was all a charade to hide their real intentions and get him to lower his guard. As soon as he innocently accepted an invitation to Rena's house or something, she would fucking murder him and the entire village would help hide the body. That shit is scary as fuck.

The same thing can be said of all the other arcs. The Mion in Watanagashi has a fucked up moral system and reluctantly went along with her family's orders to murder the victims of each year, ruining her life in the process because Rena and Keiichi turned on her. In Tatarigoroshi, Keiichi was actually cursed with a power that makes his death wishes come true, and he was also possessed by Satoshi's spirit and transported to an alternate Hinamizawa after disappearing in the night of watanagashi in the real world.

Each arc has its own "truth" separate from the real canon explanation. And those alternate truths often make for very interesting stories/scenarios. They deserve to be analyzed and discussed as much as the real truth.

Seriously, Onikakushi as Keiichi perceives it is fucking horrifying. Taking the events at face value and exploring the circumstances in which two teenage girls would be part of this murder plot is really interesting.

It reminds me of this short film:

When I installed the Meakashi patch it only gave me three options: a french language pack, the BGM fix and the SE fix. Before this chapter I always had another option to install a OST Remake.
Is this intended and the OST remake is not needed anymore in chapter 5 or did I fuck this up somehow?
I did a quick check and the msys01-30 (mystery music, club music, etc.) files are the same as in the earlier chapters.

I don't know how in any way or form you can look at this theory and consider it to be anything other than depressing, at least from Battler's POV. The only person benefiting from this ending is Yasu, and it would contribute even more to the warped and selfish depiction that was painted of her character. That's clearly a poor fate. + of course Ange

No wonder so many people got hooked on Higurashi with such a great introductory chapter, may it be with the VN or the anime version. The premise of Onikakushi and the sheer amount of fear/paranoia Keiichi experienced while keeping the reader/spectator on the edge the entire time were entertaining in their own right. Perhaps this is also why most people didn't like Himatsubushi at first, since it doesn't really hold water when isolated from the story as a whole compared to the other chapters. Even if it introduces Akasaka, Rika as the real protagonist and the greatness of mahjong. Okonogi too, I suppose.

Same. There's plenty to unpack and understand on the fantasy side.

For example, the manga mentions that Gertrude and Cornelia symbolize the receipt stuck in the door and the duct tape seals, respectively. The receipt trick was used by Eva way back in Episode 1 to seal Kinzo's study, while the duct tape seals didn't get implemented until Episode 5. This is why Gertrude is portrayed as a longtime veteran while Cornelia is a new recruit out on her first mission.

That wish cannot be granted with certainty. Some people didn't have the experience to make their theories with every new episode. New readers are spoiled everywhere and are biased. They cannot understand other interpretations or alternate theories. Show them Jessicatrice and they call it dumb. Thinking for your own is more important than making sense of the official solution. Honestly, Erikatrice ala Italian_Anon or as a Shkannon expansion was a nice niche analysis for Erika. While everyone remembers her as a troll intellectual rapist it was a reason to download Umineko and read it again. Other's probably want looking for specific manga scenes to deny this.

>what the fuck does "without love it cannot be seen" even mean and refer to?
Are you for real? You can't have read eight novels about it and not get it. It doesn't refer to a single subject, but it means that you need to be able to emotionally understand people to actually understand their actions, so the bare "truth" is meaningless as long as you can't understand their motives and the fact that what they could have done at some point doesn't summarize ALL of their lives. The Ushiromiya weren't good people and each of them did some nasty stuff, but they are all were more than JUST that: they were people with a lot of emotional baggage who had their good and bad points. That's something you can't see without love, without actually understanding them, just seeing them as one dimensional characters for creepy fanfictions.
The most prominent character in all of this is Sayo, of course, and in her case the quote is way more powerful, since you can't see clearly ANYTHING about her world without getting to know her. You'd have to emotionally understand her to be able to see her as who she really was, not just a wanna be murderer, obviously. But you'd also have to "love" her, to be open to understand her, to see what magic was for her, and that it served a purpose, and that it saved her life at some point (before destroying it), and how important it was, so even if magic doesn't exist, it does 'exist' (and can be seen) for her and those who love her. Even more in particular, it's Beatrice, her "true", magic form, who can't be seen without love: the fact that Sayo is more than just a servant (because she's the true heir of the Ushiromiya, but also because she's a person with a lot of problems the people around her doesn't seem to realize about). Kinzo crying for Beatrice in front in Kanon is a proof of his lack of love in EP2 (?) because he can't see Beatrice in Kanon, since he doesn't know about his love, so he doesn't "love" him (yet).

this is a basic difference between erikantrice and shkanontrice.

look how i solve natsuhi season, I do not surrender to the evidence of a red truth, I understand its true meaning and with logic I can find the solution hidden behind walls of illusions.
shkanontrice, on the other hand, if he cannot solve something, he simply says it is an illusion there is no need to think.

Gohda start to rape jessica. If battler had returned 1 year before than he could save her, if battler had returned 1 year later then jessica would be dead already of suicide, but battler return in the worng moment.

Umineko and Higurashi took place in the real world, just adorning a few real life mysteries (Marco Polo bridge incident and nazi gold) with their own explanation to serve the story. The world history itself is the same as in the real world. If Ciconia is the next WTC, it probably follows the same pattern.

According to Seshat, one of the books of revelation was erased from history "as if someone hit the delete key on a keyboard and erased all instances of the word". She has one of the only copies left, but the book itself has been officially lost for more than a thousand years.

Doesn't this heavily suggest that they are in the matrix, considering other WTCs take place in OUR world and therefore that book shouldn't be lost? The book is probably just a normal and well known part of revelations in the original Ciconia world, but whoever put everyone in the matrix deleted it from the simulation's past history because they wanted to follow it inside the simulation and didn't want humanity to predict and prepare for the disasters.

I must admit that I can't help but associate that one track ( the one that plays while Ange gets stripped naked and devoured by goats in EP8 after reading the book) with humiliation.

It's the perfect mix of sad and pathetic, and it plays while Ange herself is emotionlessly describing how the goats humiliate her and devour her clothes. I just can't hear it anymore without thinking of humiliation. It's THE theme of humiliation.

A humiliation scene where the humiliatee herself describes her situation in detail and we feel sad for her but also kinda enjoy the trainwreck... is the best kind of humiliation. That track captures the emotions of such scenes really well. It sounds determined and dramatic but also pathetic and miserable.

It could easily play in a scene where a girl agrees to strip naked and humiliate herself in front of her entire school to save her little sister who is kidnapped and will be killed if she doesn't follow the humiliating demands. It really is heroic disgrace in audio form.

>tfw edgy teenage Ange literally ONLY exists because loli Ange got diarrhea and missed the conference

Isn't that pathetic? If Ange had gone to the conference, she would've died with her family. If the crime hadn't happened, Ange would've become a completely different person as an adult.

And yet, she became an angsty, grumpy emo girl who doesn't take shit from anyone. The kind of girl that would NEVER admit she does something as pathetic as pooping. She's too cool for that. Which is ironic because she only developed this edgy personality as a result of shitting syrup out her ass for a week straight when she was a loli. Pathetic.

Edgy teen Ange literally cannot exist without that event taking place. Her very existence is tied to a bad case of diarrhea that exposes her shameful human condition. Without that humilating past, Ange as we know her wouldn't exist and would instead be a different person with a totally different personality.

Across all the fragments, it's literally impossible for this badass version of Ange to exist without having gone through that pathetic experience. It is a requirement. She can't be cool and have dignity at the same time.

Not only that, but her bullies probably teased her about it too. It's a well known fact that this event ruined her life. And I'm sure the talk shows keep mentioning how Ange escaped harm because she was sick with diarrhea that day. EVERYBODY KNOWS.

I always liked how Higurashi took its sweet time to get to the point and had us go through these long, mostly unrelated scenes.

Things like that one tip from Himatsubushi where Oryou is preparing to attend the funeral of a random ass kid who died in an accident and was the grandchild of a random ass business partner of the Sonozakis.

Or that scene in Matsuri where this elderly politician is suffering in his deathbed because his partners took advantage of his incoming death to blame him for all the corruption. Akasaka is there to reassure the wife that her husband's name will be cleared, but the poor guy will die feeling like shit before they can even begin to do so. And this is where he learns about the Irie institution's funds and remembers Hinamizawa.

His next works are much more focused, but I always liked Higurashi's random tangents. They took the story to really strange places and brought up situations and issues that I would've never been though about or been interested in otherwise.

If they serve a master, that's their choice, how pathetic! Imagine having Ange or Maria do your bidding. Telling them to do lewd and humiliating things.

Why would you? It's pretty obvious that she and Hideyoshi were bribed to help with a fake murder mystery set up by Yasu.

The victims really were killed, but they thought it was all fake. That's why Yasu killed them afterwards after she got what she wanted out of them. They were accomplices to what they thought was a prank.

Hell, Eva's behavior in this episode alone is very similar to her behavior in EP5. Very casual and unnatural for someone in the middle of a murder case. And in both games, she was participating in a scheme with fake murders (as far as she knew).

Rosa is clearly aware of the murders in EP2, though. She's probably the only sibling that would actually help with something like that. She just had to act out the whole survivor thing to avoid killing Battler and the others in front of Maria.

She was approached by Yasu and told of a plan to force Natsuhi to reveal her crimes. That's why she does the receipt thing in the first place. She has already been told the truth about Kinzo.

She plays detective with Battler and tries to get him to suspect the servants because that's exactly what Yasu told her to do. She wanted Battler to tackle the mystery and stop her, so she had Eva encourage him like that.

The problem is that I don't think Eva can believe the murders are fake in EP1. Hideyoshi knows that the murders are real since he was in the toolshed. Assuming that Yasu didn't pay him solely to testify to a nonexistent body that Kanon and Nanjo could've done by himself, then I'm assuming Hideyoshi was asked either to help kill or move bodies. So if he was, we know that Eva was in the mansion. I find it hard to believe that Hideyoshi could be killing people or moving around bodies without her knowing. We also have testimony from Genji that Eva and Hideyoshi came back to the guesthouse shortly after midnight together. If he's lying to cover for them, then I don't know why he'd lie even further by saying they were together. The whole scenario doesn't make sense.

To further elaborate on this, Rosa in EP2 also "meets Kinzo" in the study. The bribed accomplice in each episode is always told the truth about Kinzo. I believe they are also told about Shkanon.

Notice how Rosa gets very agitated when Battler examines the hole in Shannon's forehead and tells him not to touch the corpses. She thinks Shannon is faking her death and doesn't want Battler to find out, because if that happened she would have to kill him right there in front of Maria and that would come back to bite her in the ass several years down the road.

That's why she goes crazy and runs to the sea when she realizes that "Beatrice" isn't alive anymore and won't let her into the underground tunnels to escape the blast. She really killed herself in Natsuhi's room, betraying Rosa.

They were told it was all fake. They just assumed it was really well-done makeup in the case of those with half of their faces gone, or even fake bodies wearing their clothes in the case of those with no faces. They were told that the victims would be in on it too, hiding somewhere for the rest of the day (which is exactly what Jessica and the others do in EP5, they hide away in the underground room).

You realize that Genji is always an accomplice of Yasu's, right? He has every reason to lie about what his "master" tells him to lie about.

>So Hideyoshi and Eva were told two different things?
No, they were approached and the same time and are both in on it.

If you consider their characterizations, none of the siblings except Rosa would ever take part in an actual murder plot. But they can be bribed into agreeing to an outrageous "prank" targeting Battler.

Yasu's accomplices are always Genji, Kumasawa and Nanjo, but only Genji knows Yasu's true intentions. The others have no idea she's actually planning to kill people for real and blow everything up.

The only exception where Eva actually goes full murderer is EP3, where she argues with Rosa about how to split the gold, pushes her and accidentally impales her on the sharp fence. Then she is forced to silence Maria and goes fucking insane trying to cover up her crime. Meanwhile, Yasu goes around killing people herself and leaving stakes on the corpses. Kyrie and Rudolf were probably killed by Eva when they confronted Hideyoshi about Eva's absence during the time of Rosa's death. The guy was just covering for her while she discussed the secret gold issue with Rosa, he never expected his wife to accidentally kill Rosa.

Come to think of it, this makes me think Shannon's death in a new light. Eva says in this scene that she believes Shannon is dead. Maybe in addition to being paid, Eva demanded that the Shannon persona be removed and George doesn't marry her. This would also explain why Shannon is the only person lacking a corpse: Yasu didn't expect her to be one of the six. They had to tell Hideyoshi just to pretend that Shannon was in there.

I like how EP3 seems more or less transparent (ignoring the servant ring) until Nanjo's death. Then it becomes really easy again if you know about Sayo. But then it becomes kind of weird again when you know anything you need to know, but the facts don't fit as clearly as it would seem. Like, did Eva really find the gold?

She didn't know she found the gold? The why did she gave her the bank code? Was she an accomplice since before who she promised to save (I think this is the solution, most likely)?

If you think about it, each Chiru arc is an answer to its corresponding question arc.

EP5 is an answer to EP1. The episode is all about Natsuhi. It explains the mystery of Kinzo's disappearance by revealing straight away that Kinzo was an illusion the whole time. Eva acts unnaturally in both episodes despite acting "concerned" when the situation calls for it. She sets up the receipt on the door in both episodes. She debates the mysteries with the detective (Battler in EP1 and Erika in EP5) in a dire situation where it's totally unappropiate. The way the "corpses" disappear from the guest house by hiding away in the gold room also corresponds with what Eva and Hideyoshi believed happened with the "victims" in EP1.

EP6 is an answer to EP2. It's all about Shannon and Kanon and how they can't love, and practically spells out the explanation for their strange interactions with Beatrice. The resolution of the mystery (that it was all a prank set up by the family) also hints at the excuse used by Yasu to make accomplices out of anyone in the past games, regardless of their moral compass.

EP7 is mostly an answer to EP3. It explains the number written on the door. It explains in detail who Ronove and Virgilia represent, explains the whole deal with Kuwadorian and hints at the solutions of some of the past games. In the Tea Party, while arguing about the gold, Eva accidentally kills Natsuhi and panicks, deciding to blow up the island to cover her crime. This is exactly what happens in EP3 between her and Rosa, and the motive for her actions after that point. In the same Tea Party, Rudolf and Kyrie suggest that Battler will prove fatal to them if he ever finds out they were the culprits, and are willing to murder him if he isn't fully convinced of their story. This hints at Rosa's motives for playing around with the survivors in EP2 instead of straight up killing them all with her gun. She didn't want to shoot anyone in front of Maria or do anything suspicious, because that could prove fatal to her if Maria ever connects the dots years later and calls the police.

EP8 is obviously an answer to EP4, focusing completely on Ange and her future life. It finally explains Battler's birth, which was a big deal in EP4. And the trick ending explains what the fuck happened to Ange in EP4, including the full extent of Okonogi's plan. It also closes the Witch Hunt plotline, something that was introduced in EP4 too.

There is also Sakutaro, who is a big deal in both EP4 and EP8. It might not seem to be the case, since he's barely around in EP8, but Ange's story literally ends with her becoming a writer and making Sakutaro into a successful novel series, teaching children about Maria's philosophy and coping mechanisms. This isn't only Ange's life work, but also an answer to HIGURASHI's main villain. She tried to make her grandfather eternal through forceful methods and failed. Both she and Hifumi ended up being erased from the records in most worlds and became a footnote in Irie's article in Matsuribayashi. Meanwhile, Ange went about it with love and succeeded in turning Maria into a god. She made her fantasy world eternal and shared it with millions of children across the world.

This has to be intentional. Ange is kind of a counterpart to Takano in this situation.

>did Eva really find the gold? Then, why did Beatrice continue with the killing instead of surrendering? (it's even reinforced by EP5 that, in her games, Beato would have actually surrendered if someone solved the epitaph). She didn't know she found the gold? The why did she gave her the bank code? Was she an accomplice since before who she promised to save (I think this is the solution, most likely)? But what were the terms of the deal, exactly? Because Beatrice kills George. But then she knows Sayo was the culprit. Why did she abandon Jessica and kill Battler? Also did Beatrice really intend to let her accomplices live?
I think Yasu didn't know the gold had been found (because Eva and Rosa kept it a secret instead of announcing it to the family). So she kept killing. When she eventually realized she fucked up because the gold had been found, George was already dead, so she left the number on George's door as an apology to Eva. Like saying "sorry, but at least you get to have the gold".

The other possibility is that Yasu KNEW the gold had been found, but she decided to break her promise because Eva fucking strangled Maria, giving her a cruel death that Yasu didn't wish for. That could be the reason she chose George as her victim, to fuck with Eva and make her suffer.

The third possibility is that Eva was an accomplice all along and never actually found the gold by herself, but was approached by Yasu and guided into the underground room to discuss the plan. I don't really like this solution, and it isn't really supported by the story except for two small hints: 1. Evatrice's ascension being all a charade from Beatrice, who was fully in control the whole time. 2. The manga solution for EP3, which suggests that Eva willingly murdered Rosa to keep the gold for herself. It isn't really enough to be convincting, in my opinion.

I think the real accomplices in EP3, if there are any, were Krauss and Natsuhi. "Our Confession" (both the original booklet and the Saku VN adaptation) show an unfinished scenario where Krauss and Natsuhi are made into accomplices, which requires them to be threatened with a gun and taken into the gold room. There, Yasu reveals herself and explains that she has control over the island by bringing up the shrine explosion, and blackmails them to do her bidding in exchange of sparing Jessica's and their own lives. Otherwise, she will activate the bomb or gun them all down with the help of her accomplices.

The same thing could've happened in EP3. They were threatened and forced to do things that helped Yasu's plan. When Krauss happened to notice Shannon's dead body through the parlor's window and decided to break it to check on her, it was probably all an act. He had been told about it beforehand and just pretended to notice it.

Yasu needed them to do this, otherwise her closed room ring would've failed. The closed room ring REQUIRES the survivors to discover Shannon's body first and access it by breaking the parlor's window. It being the first room allows Yasu to escape from it while they are busy checking the others and change into Kanon to "die" in the chapel. Without Krauss and Natsuhi pretending to notice Shannon through the window, some of the family members might have discovered the corpses in the wrong order (like going to the chapel and seeing there is nobody there yet, or breaking a different window to enter a different closed room, which would turn the impossible ring into something "possible" for humans. It's only impossible if only the parlor window is broken and the rest of the rooms are opened by their respective keys, leaving no room for any culprit to have escaped.)

>> No.22991926

Also, I think it's very fitting that Eva loses her son as a result of being a greedy bitch. Had she announced the gold's discovery fairly to everyone, George wouldn't have been killed.

I think Yasu is mainly killing people as a show for Maria (to prove to her that magic was real after all). Without Maria to witness the impossible crimes that puzzle even the adults, or Battler to get curious and try to solve the case, Yasu wouldn't have done the whole ritual thing. She would've just set the bomb to explode at midnight without killing anyone.

But she also had another reason for killing them. Once she kills the first victim, she is already past the point of no return. She has just fucking ruined her life and the police will figure out she did it. Crossing this line gives her courage to kill herself once and for all and go through with the plan. Unless she kills someone, she will get cold feet and not even have the guts to let the bomb do its thing. She needs to intentionally corner herself and cross the line of murder, guaranteeing that her life is over and she can't go back anymore.

This point of no return thing creates a really intense atmosphere in any story.

I remember being at the edge of my seat reading Meakashi, especially when Shion answered that phone call the morning after killing Oryou and pretended to be Mion. She crossed the point of no return accidentally, she never had the intention to kill the grandma in the first place. But she died from the stun gun and now Shion's life is fucking over. From that morning onwards, she's living on borrowed time, because she can't keep pretending everything is fine inside the house forever.

I think crossing this line (accidentally, ironically enough) is what drove Shion to go through with her revenge. She knew she had just ruined her fucking life and would get found out eventually, so she had nothing to lose and decided she might as well go nuts.

Seriously, I really don't think Shion would've done what she did if she hadn't killed Oryou by accident. She just wanted to do something crazy and question her about Satoshi's whereabouts while pretending to be Mion to the outside world, even if there is an unbelievable punishment waiting for her once she's found out and Oryou is rescued by the main family.

Not impossible, but kind of dumb imo that in this game in particular she decides to murder George and Nanjo in the 9th twilight personally even though she had no reason to do it anymore, she just had to wait for the bomb now. Also, if Eva wasn't an accomplice and she didn't meet Beatrice down there, she shouldn't know that there was a bomb nor that were was an escape route, so Sayo should appear to say her that, if she was truly sorry. In which case the number thing is kind of useless, she could have said it directly to her.
>The other possibility is that Yasu KNEW the gold had been found, but she decided to break her promise because Eva fucking strangled Maria, giving her a cruel death that Yasu didn't wish for. That could be the reason she chose George as her victim, to fuck with Eva and make her suffer.
Not impossible, but considering the importance Beatrice seems to give to her rules, seems unlikely to me.

My take on it actually (even though I don't really like it storywise), though I already said the problems I had with it.

Not like there aren't any solutions, these are all possible, it's just that EP3 has this not-totally-solvable bits the other EPs lack, in my opinion, which makes it kind of unique.

The scene of Zombie Kanon playing with his wound in front of Nanjo and saying "Don't worry, this is nothing... This wound isn't deep at all... See? It's no problem" is actually really fucking creepy.

Yasu is being sarcastic and confronting Nanjo about the fucked up castration wound he is responsible for. Something he and Genji considered "the best solution", as if there was no problem at all with forcing a kid to live as the opposite gender with no puberty whatsoever and a botched scar of a peehole where his dick should be. They really thought the kid's life was worth saving because such a mutilation wasn't that big of a problem. It was nothing.

It's all Genji's fault. He's an old fashioned man who is also dead inside and has no tact whatsoever, on top of being unhealthily devoted to serving whoever he considers his master.

No normal person would drop all this unnecessary information onto the depressed bullied kid. Telling her she's a male eunuch, revealing everything about how her mother was imprisoned and kept ignorant of the world, casually showing them the underground room full of Italian corpses while saying "well, I wasn't here at the time, so Kinzo may or may not have murdered all these people for selfish reasons", handing them the keys to a fucking bomb just in case all this info makes her want to kill herself and then promising to obey her every order without question.

Seriously, Genji is a fucking psychopath. What's wrong with him? He's obsessed with serving his masters and tries to do the right thing sometimes even if it means disobeying them, but he also seems to be completely unaware of other people's feelings and doesn't even consider that these truths could disturb the fuck out of Yasu.

Ange tried to kill herself when she found out the truth about Rokkenjima. Same thing happened to Yasu. She learned too many unnecessary facts about herself and that made her think there was no escape from her situation.

Genji set it all up to make sure that Yasu would solve the epitaph and be reunited with Kinzo, to help Kinzo die without regrets. She was MADE to solve it. But because of it, she was fed all this information and put in an extremely unhealthy mental state.

Imagine if George hadn't been a beta cuck and actually tried to fuck her. He would've noticed that something is really wrong, confront her about it and reassure her that he still loves her no matter what. But because she was so worried and determined to hide the truth, to maintain the illusion of Shannon being a cute bouncy waifu, she would rather kill herself and everyone else than come clean and risk being rejected.

Genji is the real culprit here. Fuck him.

I would say he probably didn't know, since all clues in the VNs imply the one he suspected being Lion was Kanon (they went shooting together, it was not long after Kanon was "created" that the epitaph came to be, there's even this scene in EP1 where Kinzo insists for Kanon to try and solve the epitaph which could be a scene from the past intercalated in the story as to make it seem as if Kinzo was still alive), who he didn't know was also Shannon for all we know (he probably ignored her pretty badly, not suspecting anything from her after who knows how many years). The manga contradicts this with that Shannon scene in which he learns about her polydactyly, but it's so random compared to the natural progression of the Kanon version, and having also in mind the mangaka seems to fucking love Shannon and draws her whenever she can... well... I don't trust her in that point, really.

The entire diary is a bunch of illusions, though. It even goes as far as portraying Yasu as Beatrice and toying with Shkanon shenanigans. Clair is telling a very idealized version of the story.

Kinzo was probably on his deathbed by the time he met Yasu, barely able to move. And the scene in the gold room after Kinzo's death was probably made to look much nicer, without all the anger towards Genji we observed in the red guts scene.

Yeah, the manga's small details are just the interpretation of the author. The individual details are left to the imagination in the original VN.

For example, I think Alchemist fucked up when voicing the man from 19 years ago. Making him sound so obviously like Battler, barely even trying to hide it, was a mistake. It makes the solution way too obvious and also makes the man less scary because we are literally hearing fucking Battler.

But the VERY FIRST phone call (out of the 3), the one that takes place before the conference itself, is supposed to be from YASU. Not Battler. The text's description of the androgynous voice fits Yasu. Natsuhi's internal thoughts about the caller's uncertain gender also fit. And the gameboard's truth itself only makes sense if Battler was bribed during the conference or a couple days before. Not weeks before, which is when this phone call takes place.

They fucked up giving the man the same voice during the first phone call, because it contradicts Natsuhi's very description of it and makes no sense when you know the truth. This isn't Battler talking yet. It's Yasu.

Goes to show that this VN was never meant to be voiced. Too many scenes play around with the fact that we are only relying on the text.

Really? There are many more? Actually just hiring someone for a neutral male voice or not voicing it at all, or even just putting some kind of talking-through-the-telephone-at-the-distance sound works well.

Dumb stake trivia:
Kanon, being the bottled up feelings of anger of Sayo, gets pierced by Satan (wrath) in EP1 and EP2. Satan also pierces Natsuhi in EP3, maybe punishing the anger that made her push the maid with the baby into the cliff?
Belphegor (sloth) pierces Nanjo twice, EP1 and EP2. He did decide it was okay to do nothing about Sayo's condition, even though as a doctor he was the one who knew better about it. Then Belphegor tries to kill Rudolf in EP3 (he insisting in delaying telling the truth to Battler and Kyrie after all), although he ends up being killed by Asmodeus (no comment lol).
Asmodeus (lust) also kills Jessica, as you said, and... Eva, in EP1. Not sure about why Eva in particular would be lustful though.
Beelzebub (gluttony) just kills people related to food it seems. Hideyoshi in EP1 and EP3, Gohda in EP2. Nothing too deep apparently.
Leviathan (envy) pierces Kumasawa in EP1 and EP2. Was she actually envious of someone, Beatrice? Was she in love with Kinzo too, maybe? Does it have to do with her inaction towards Sayo? Then it tries to kill Kyrie, for obvious reasons, although the one who ends up killing her is Mammon (greed). Well, one can't say Kyrie wasn't greedy too.
Mammon also pierces Kinzo in EP1 (greedy about Beatrice), and Shannon in EP2 (was it greedy, pretending she would be able to become a human? Did she try telling George the truth and decided to kill him and herself after it didn't go well, maybe?).
Finally Lucifer (pride) pierces Genji in EP1 (proud of being furniture, to the point it ruins Sayo's life), George in EP2 (so proud of being a man now, but couldn't understand what Shannon was going truth) and Krauss in EP3 (his pride as the sucessor I guess? I'm not sure I'd call his 1986 self "proud" exactly, though).

They're using the broader definition of lust for Eva. She's lusting for punishment to Natsuhi, (which isn't considered wrath since Natsuhi is both guilty of Eva's accusation and Eva really isn't trying to punish her for it in an excessive way) for money, (again, not necessarily falling under greed since she isn't hoarding and she actually does need money) and for power over George and the family.

But no one knows that Rosa went to the chapel.

>>22993025
really?
how can you know that?
if gohda and shannon, saw rosa exit from the chapel then yasu could use this to made them suspect about her.
they would never confess of saw rosa in front her,but with other servants in servant room yes.

example:kanon appier in the servant room:
kanon:guys rosa in the culprit we must hide nanjo and kumasawa are old easy targets.
gohd and shannon:kanon have right i saw her exit from the chapel.
this is another solution of my manifesto for the death of nanjo and kumasawa, if the chapel scene wasnt meta then it works

Just gonna leave this here. Ever since I saw Higurashi for the first time it changed me. So I'm doing this, gathering all of Ryukishi's writing and making it into a Google doc. If anyone else has something like that maybe share? But I did this to thank Rena and everyone else from Higurashi and Umineko. Everything else is gonna be new like Higanbana and Ciconia.

>Why would you? It's pretty obvious that she and Hideyoshi were bribed to help with a fake murder mystery set up by Yasu.

Eva told George to go with his parents to the Guest Room. 2nd Twilight victims would have changed if George agreed. You could say it for every accomplice parents who would take their child with them "just in case".

>Very casual and unnatural for someone in the middle of a murder case
I refute. Ep3 shows that everyone is quite relaxed after the crime which has a real burnt corpse.

Because they literally think it's all a bizarre prank from Kinzo and his servant. They discuss this possibility for a while.

some discord groups have literally the entire umineko script for download, likely to facilitate theorycrafting and overall discussion, shit is really really long after all.
