I…. concur. The anime adaptation of this arc was severely handicapped in terms of continuity, badassery as well as gruesomeness. If they’d had properly streamlined the anime a bit more….. there were a lot of incoherent parts in the anime now that I look back on it and after reading through the whole episode.
Anyways, Episode II of Umineko is completed and this arc really comes up to you and hits you like a sucker punch after the mildness of episode I. Especially with the red text rules, Battler trolling Beato trolling Battler trolling Beato and the extremely disturbing Tea Party. Seriously. I thought the anime version was bad enough…. the VN version of the Tea Party is at least 10x more disturbing and horrible.
GODDAMN RED TEXTTTTTTTTTT
Also I am a bit now pissed off at the serious shortening of the ???? part in the anime for this chapter. They didn’t put in Lady Bernkastel going nipaaa～☆～ and tsun-tsun dere-dere Lambda in the anime! RAGE!
Okay, continuing on with Banquet of the Golden Witch. I wonder if I’ll be able to watch the anime after doing this…. lol
