Beatroll’ed?

Umineko no Naku Koro ni

You anime-only watchers sure missed out on some really good shit now that this got spoiled. Seriously, the impact of this part when it hits you in the game is utterly devastating. I’ll admit, the anime art is much more fear-inducing though.

Umineko no Naku Koro ni

Battler is so going to be the butt of “IT’S OVER ENDLESS NINE!!!!” jokes for a long time to come hurrr..

Umineko no Naku Koro ni

“You’re gonna get raped!” faces from the Siestas in this episode gave me an involuntary hardon. Goddamnit!

Umineko no Naku Koro ni

“Flying hamburger“? Fuck you, gg, FUCK YOU.

Umineko no Naku Koro ni

Once again, the anime art is probably compensating for the rushed-ness of the story with QUALITY such as this.

Seriously, if you haven’t read the visual novel yet, make some time for it. It’ll be well worth the time spent!

    Since the beggining i suspected this was a lie, was it the anime fault? because just from nowhere Beatrice started to be all moe ,kinda hard to imagine someone living through many years killing etc starts to change like that õ.õ and Virgilia saying magic was to help people was what made it even more unbeliveable…

    I have no idea what people do, but the visual novel, unless you buy japanese game and apply the patch, you won’t get the whole game, the demo is only episode 1. And one thing I totally agree with Studio Deen, who cares about the characters or who died or the whole stupid mystery, just fill up the screen time with the witch fights, beato-troll, fighting girls, etc. Much more entertaining. I hate visual the novel, the whole airport scene takes like a freaking hour to get through (I gave up after 5 min), the art is crappy, the lines are cheesy, corny, stupid, etc and I don’t give a damn about the characters. It will be good if this was in NOVEL form, cause then, I can just, you know, skip right to the good part, instead of mindlessly pressing a mouse button, watch crappy art, and reading crappy lines.

    @karuroso: In the game, the act Beato pulls is way much more believable since it’s more gradual. You seriously won’t suspect anything until the final moments of the act when you’re forced to sign the invitation to the Golden Land.

    @d: Your loss for missing out what is most probably the second most original and imaginative visual novel to be released this decade.

    But….do witches need to reform?

    Your ride isn’t over yet…nor will it be over in a year’s time. For from the Core the withces come forth, and not all is how it appears.

    Kihihihihihi

    Studio Deen completely failed at this episode. I’m royally annoyed at their supposed “trimming” which is more like cutting the whole of Umineko into half via the centre.

    I’m so glad I got the game myself. It’s well worth it. Oh and d, the airport scene was necessary. I watched the anime first and finished the first arc without knowing even who Gohda, Kumasawa, Kyrie, Rudolf and many other people are. You have to get well introduced to them first, or you won’t understand a thing. After I finished the game, I could well memorize everyone and every order they died and the way they did, and it really will help in solving the mystery.

    I doubt if anime viewers will understand the whole thing even after Chiru is finished without rewatching the entire anime at least thrice. And they still probably won’t understand the whole thing.
