Turn of the Golden Witch completed

Umineko no Naku Koro ni

Awesome furniture

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.

Umineko no Naku Koro Ni


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

    Why wouldn´t you be able to watch the anime afterwards? It´s just animated blood & gore?

    That if it is to gruesome then it is censored.

    I don´t mind :p Having watched the CG of Gore Screaming Show I do think that is has to be something out of the ordinary to break me.

    The tea party that ended act 2 was awesome in my opinion. I do wonder why Battler and the head of the family had to be done in that way though. Oh well.

    On towards the next episode :)

    “Why wouldn´t you be able to watch the anime afterwards? It´s just animated blood & gore?”

    I guess he meant it in the “reading the book before watching the movie and regretting it afterwards” kind of way. After all the 3rd and 4th game are so long that even with ~ 14 episode reminding they will have to cut a huge amount of content to fit til the end of the season.

    But if you like the wickedness of teh presentation of the 2nd arc you will like to hear that the 3rd finally will give you more tool to understand how this chaos of fantasy and mystery aspects work together. But also expect even more restrictive red walls of text ;)

    +1 for this post. It feels like you are Battler not believing that DEEN screwed it up in the anime then the VN was Beato. Devil’s proof they say.

    “How were the HCGs?”

    Hentai…. where? Besides: Which CG? :D

    Thats a non-branching horror / detective mystery game using a really minimalistic engine… I think you took the word “mind fuck” a bit too literal.

    The worst it gets are detailed textual descriptions of gorn to quite generic background imaginary of blood & gore and at times really tame fan service.

    After all thats a game to think about not to fap about :P
