Is Rosa a BEST enough mom to basically let a creepy eunuch into her daughter's bed every night in exchange for a shitton of gold? If she's willing to kill her entire fucking family for a billion yen card in EP2, I don't see why she'd have a problem with selling Maria's ass to her freak lesbian tranny friend.

I honestly can see Rosa agreeing to that.

Can Yasu even get horny without genitals? Why the hell would she give Rosa all of her fortune just so she can finger Maria's butt or lick her armpits all night? That stuff is only enjoyable if you are turned on. Also, arousal overrides disgust. If there is no arousal, I can't imagine Yasu wanting to bury her face in Maria's ass.

I can see Yasu doing it just for Maria's sake, though. They really love each other and I'm sure Maria wouldn't judge her.

In fact, the only person Yasu could have been happy with was Maria. If only enuchXloli relationships were accepted, she wouldn't have blown up the island.

At its peak Steins;Gate was just discount Zero Escape that I was able to predict at every single turn from the mile away (prolly after obtaining Umineko superpowers, but that's another talk). What really turned me off, and that probably does sound weird on /jp/ board, is the devotion to the worst otaku pandering filth I'm trying to avoid after turning to the more obscure stuff some time ago. I can take a bit of tasteful fanservice like in Ryukishi works with joy, but when like the half of screentime is dedicated to "dude 2ch moe traps akihabara comiket cosplay jojo references LMAO" it makes me feel physically sick.

>> No.18597765

What makes Ryukishi's writing so real and heartwarming? He repeats himself a lot ("it's only natural") and sometimes explains things like three times in a row using different words (sometimes even the same words!). He's not a perfect writer by any means. But somehow, I enjoy his writing style more than any other, and I'm a pretty avid reader.

Ange is such a pervert. She told her other aunt to take a dump behind a tree. And she also told Amakusa to buy her toilet paper. She also got diarrhea all over the place according to EP5 Battler.

The fact that someone as edgy and proud as Ange is indirectly acknowledging the fact that she needs to wipe her ass with toilet paper is just mindblowing. Is she too innocent to realize what she's implying with that comment? Or is she lewd enough to intentionally bring up such a shameful fact without a care in the world? Either way, Ange is lewd.

his prose isn't trash, it's just not great.
as a certain japanese reader pointed out, he is a very good writer all around, but nothing especial in terms of prose besides his extensive vocabulary and occasional amazingly written narrative sequences.

his repetitiveness mostly happens in a scene that is meant to be either meta-comical ("NOTHING COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG AS LONG AS WE ARE ALL TOGETHER, IMMA RIGHT COUSIN?" x20 for the sake of death flag lols, or "THEY NEEDED A LOT OF MONEY RIGHT NOW" for the sake of overdramatic tone to a sequence that would probably be very boring otherwise, since it's such a long finance-related infodump, or "LET'S ALL BE HAPPY TOGETHER FOREVER, COUSINS, AND HOPE EVERYTHING GOES ABSOLUTELY RIGHT" which was aknowledged to be Meta Battler getting comfy with his family just for Beatrice to break in literally just after and point that out and begin the game) or just actually to emphazise the emptyness of certain characters and thoughts, which also serves as plot devices here and there.

The "it was only natural" thing is probably the only legit one, and it isn't even that much of a big deal to deal with desu (I didn't even notice until people in here pointed it out, and iirc it was quite tweaked by the new translation, much like some other overused and/or mechanical translation choices.

now, the pacing in other hand could have been more consistent (there are parts that it drags quite a bit even if information is important, and other times that it is just way too fast for my tastes, like some bits of EP8 after the goats broke in Rokkenjima).

now, to mention again what that same anon said and that I agree completely, Ryukishi has absolute dominance of storytelling elements (especially narrative traps and other layered fragments' presentation inside his story), character building and overall setup and atmosphere of his tales.

In those regards he is in some other level as a writer. Makes his flawed prose basically irrelevant compared to all of what his composition becomes at the end.

And that's why I think even if I were to find a typo from him in a work of his, I wouldn't actually mind that, much (actually I would, very much so, because of OCD issues, but you get my point)

>> No.18599008

I would just add that the entirety of EP7 is probably the most well written prose he ever achieved thus far... in the terms that, it's actually superb to read in many instances, which is something lots of people in the japanese forums also commented about besides the usual controversy the implicit nature of the Episode had caused in both our side and theirs.

That one EP had pure poetry in some segments, and truly shows his passion for theater too.

They complete each other, and Answer arcs are way more complex in every single aspect (Question arcs are more of a gigantic collection of foreshadowing).

Also, Question arcs make no sense without the Answer Arcs, naturally.

I wouldn't put any of them above the other half

You can only analyze Umineko as a whole anyway. Without EP8 you wouldn't ever figure out what the fuck was going on all along with the meta elements (and that shit is like, explained in the very last minutes).

Also have any of you heard about Oblomov? It's another classic staple of Russian literature, the novel about the man so lazy and whose existence is so meaningless, it takes 170 pages for him to just get out of bed. It's really really boring novel actually, and was a real dread to read for 16yo me, but it reminds me that written word shouldn't always be fun to accompany the topic unfolded by the author. That post >>18598934 pointed out that repeated nature of some of the scenes in Umineko is usually the way to strenghten the themes and exposition. Higurashi is mostly the same, and even if sometimes it made my eyes roll explaining yet again the situation about the dam conflict, and the curse, and Hinamizawa customs, it served the purpose, usually as a buildup to something or to show the outlook on the subject from the eyes of another character. When people are saying me that Umineko and Higurashi should be cut by whatever percent it triggers me beyond the measure as to lose the subtlety and the structure of Ryu's stories is equivalent to losing heart.

In commemoration of Higurashi’s 15th Anniversary this month, an interview with Ryukishi07 has been published on Dengeki Online. The interview goes into heaps of detail, with Ryukishi giving his thoughts on all the milestones Higurashi has achieved in it’s 15 year lifespan, starting from his initial draft of the Hinamizawa Bus Stop stageplay, going all the way through to the international Steam Release and recent TV drama. It’s quite an interesting read, but it’s way too lengthy for us to translate all of it, so if you can’t read Japanese we recommend chucking it through Google Translate and skimming through at your own leisure.

Toward the end of the interview, he begins to talk about his current work on the series and future plans. We’ve provided a rough translation of the last three questions below. Be sure to give us your thoughts in the discussion below!

Higurashi Hou in 2014 was your most recent addition to the series. Is there any chance you’ll will write more Higurashi in the future?

I have no plans to continue Higurashi at the moment. It may be a cliche, but I can only say “I’ve moved on from Hinamizawa”. However, that doesn’t mean I won’t ever write for it again. At the Hinamizawa pilgrimage tour last year, I prepared a script featuring Keiichi and Satoko. I can’t say for sure, but maybe someday I will write for Higurashi again. If that day comes, I hope you’ll support me once more.

What about the latest entry in the When They Cry series that spawned from Higurashi?

Up until now I’ve mostly been working on it in my free time, as a way of taking a break from my outside work. Now that all my outside work has been completed, I can finally buckle down and work on it properly. I am now beginning to name the characters, and will be drawing illustrations of them soon.

Like with Umineko, it’s much easier to write the characters once I’ve given them a name and face. When I wrote Higurashi, the scenario was already complete before I drew any illustrations of the characters.

In Rose Guns Days and TRianThology, I had various other illustrators help draw the characters, but this time I’d like to once again try drawing all the characters myself. I’m sure it will be difficult, but I plan to stick to it. I will do my best to make sure the game is ready to be released next year.

Please give a final message for all the fans of Higurashi.

Thanks to all the fans who have supported over Higurashi’s long life. Thank you very much. I don’t think we could have come this far in 15 years without everyone’s support. I am currently working hard on the next When They Cry game, so I would be happy if you continue to support our work in the future. I look forward to continuing to work with you all.

People will cope how they will.
I know Ryu has worked as a CPS worker but it still blows me away how he nailed a lot of the abused child mindset. As an addict in recovery, I've met a ton of people who struggle because they never grew out of those childhood coping habits. Some are either delusional (Maria's magic obsession) or set themselves up for failure, having impossible expectations of themselves, which perpetuates the self-devaluing that children learn to handle the fact that their needs aren't getting met. The world being awful is harder to accept than viewing yourself as flawed and having it be your own fault (Satoko thinking she needs to stay strong for Satoshi, enduring mistreatment)

or could just be a vengeful and sick fuck that had an otherwise perfect plan to kill all Ushiromiyas ruined when Eva managed to solve the epitaph at just the right time to survive, necessitating the need to elaborate upon an illusion to both challenge and torment Ange and Eva. Eva was tormented until the day she died, and didn't seem to beat Beatrice since she never went public and her diary was acquired by a potentially unwitting tool of Lion, assuring that so long as Lion could control Tohya Lion would remain victorious. Ange managing to defeat Beatrice felt up in the air to me in both endings, and with Hou on the horizon, it feels like Umineko isn't done fucking with people at all. Maybe I'm just dumb though.

I'm just having fun imagining melodramatic twists. Imo it's fairly unlikely that R07 is going to pull a complete 180 in Beatrices characterization, because having an evil mastermind like that would defeat the purpose of the narrative.

I think Ryukishi is done with anime adaptations. I doubt he'll ever work with Deen again after the Umineko fiasco.

I can't get over how laughably awful the Umineko anime was. Like seriously, how could the director look at her work and not feel embarrassed? It's a shitfest of misplaced music, unintentionally funny faces, terrible character introductions, ugly designs, drama that fails to make the viewer feel anything and a nonsensical plot that makes no sense. I can't understand how the adaptation ended up like that without it being intentionally bad as a parody.

Yes. When an ass is really big and lewd, it's supposed to be sexy. Men are supposed to look at it with lustful eyes. But when a young girl like Satoko has a skinny, undeveloped ass that isn't meant to be attractive, that's really humiliating. Her ass isn't supposed to be sexy yet, it's just a stupid-looking pair of butt cheeks whose only purpose is to protect her shithole when she sits down somewhere.

Satoko's ass is supposed to be a 100% disgusting part of her body, with no sex appeal at all. And that's ironically pretty humiliating and lewd, which makes it sexy in a twisted way. Nobody except Irie or Rena actually lust after Satoko's skinny little ass in a way that would make her feel sexy or proud of her body. Most people lust after her skinny little ass because it's such a pathetic, disgusting, humiliating part of her body that disgraces her dignity and contrasts with her cheeky personality.

Just having an ass is shameful enough, but Ushiromiya Ange had to go the next step and actually bring up the subject. Holy shit, that's pathetic. She has literally become a subhuman. I mean, why is Ange considered cool for telling someone to kiss her ass? It implies that kissing her ass is an unpleasant thing. It implies that her ass is something disgusting. Fucking edgy bitch is literally humiliating herself. She's not being a "badass" in any sense of the word. If anything, she's being a bitch.

Meanwhile, Mion has a lot of real friends (literally and figuratively), doesn't give a shit about their age or their level of autism and is genuinely cool despite walking around with a smelly human ass. That takes real presence and real badassery. She's fucking perfect without being a Mary Sue.

Japan doesn't have an exact "adult age". It depends on what you want to do. And it has been like that since the Meiji era.

For example, you can do porn at 18 but can't drink alcohol until you turn 20, which is the age at which you are considered a full adult. That's why Lion can't become the family head until he is 20. But you can do a lot of stuff way before that age. For example, girls can get married at 16 (that's why Shannon is planning to marry George).

All of the above is worthless now, though, since a few days ago the laws were changed to be more consistent with gaijin shit. Now you can be a full adult at 18, but girls can't marry at 16 anymore. They have to be 18.
