For that reason, 9 digits were enough to measure almost all sensible values.

TM's works always get me bored. Umineko isn't about ''killing witches'' lulz so funny. It's a real headache trying to figure out who is the murderer. I love Christie's works, and while ep1 is like you've said, at least the riddle this time has a real meaning and it's not about 'judging poeple because of their sins'. It just takes a Christie's base to make a truly enjoyable work. I've read quite a few VN and I usually get bored halfway because they're alll the same X route for girl X and delving in her psyque and problems, you get tired a lot. Umineko was kind of refreshing, even repeating the sqame thing it's always new and you don't mind re-reading it becasue you may have information you didn't notice. I also found the whole premise really interesting because you're actually competing against the writer to discover the mistery, he smashes your theories every ep and gives you better info. I still haven't found a novel more hooking

What he does is present you with 1000 irrelevant shit, most of them contradicting each other and one is not more plausible than the other, and when he will present one solution, it will be luck of the draw.

>> No.3656662

Trolls dont need games that are interesting, only games that looks expensive and can be completed in matter of few hours. Thats why we have shitty PC games. It can also apply to other multimedia works.
So any kind of explaining why Umineko is good and worth reading to them is pointless.

>> No.3656686

BUt that's the fun, add lots of red herrings, make people think about what's actually impirtant and what's not. Giving the answer right off the bat would be stupid, also even if fantasy scenes aren't real, they're as important as the real ones, since they have something true in them, but it's difficult to extract it, that's why.

For your info, Ryu07 has the end pretty confirmed and hasn't still changed. He had to change this like the Rokkenjima of ep4 because many popele were suspecting about Kinzo and that's good, adapting to your readers intellect and trying to surprise them.

And still, Umineko is not a mistery, is a romance which was subtletly developed since ep2 and had its climax in ep5. BUt you know, I like trying to solve it, it's fun and my opinion and no opinion is better than any other

>> No.3656700

You either give the reader a fair chance, or just write whatever bullshit you want with far too many solutions running on vague mechanics.

Yes, he definitely shoudnt write romances. He is much better at making weird overcomplicated mystery stories. And that is probably only think where you are right. Rest of your posts proves that you are idiot. Bye!

>> No.3656733

I think it uses the mistery mechanism perfectly, you can make as many thories as you want, check them wth your friends, compare them and still having some kind of anticipation so they are accepted/rejected in-game. The thing is, he gives you a lot of information, there's no one who can't say that doesn't have enough basis to make a theory in general, even if it sucks because it's too twisted, but there are, of course, false information, a lot of it. Not many mistery novels are difficult, that's why Iike this one even if it isn't one, it's still as puzzling as it was in ep1, just that now you have more basis for it, most misteries give you too much hints, in fact he said this one could be solved in ep4 and once we got the answer we would start seeing many hints in every ep. Still, it's n ot even finished 5/8, you're missing at elast 2 more eps before having alll the clues you need and your able to discern the one you thought was useful and wasn't.

And for you, I liked the way BeaBato evolved, I thought they made a good couple in ep2, suffered in ep3 and in ep4 suffered because I understood her true troll, ep5 is very romantic, but still, if you don't like that kind of romance and like the typical haremshit (99% of the VNs) I can't blame you since just a few novels aren't that way, just a weak excluse of a DEEP plot just to sell porn, it's just not worth. umineko may have gore, but at least its not its selling point.

And if you're so knowledgeable, please do illustarte me with some VNs that are good, interesting and have a good plot, not just your typical H

I am not the 'Pleb' guy.
And disregarding the 'check with friends' nonsense, the problem remains that there are too fucking many variables, contradictions, misinformation and irrelevant shit. That is not challenging the leader, that's like swimming in the night hoping you reach the right shore. The point of the mystery is to either challenge you to make your eduction or enjoy/analyze the train of thought of the heroes. Umineko cranks that up to endless nines. And that is not good.
The romances are bad because the development and interactions are nonsensical and too fast in their build-up. This has nothing to do with other vns, there are problems concerning the writing in overall.
And gore cannot be the main selling point, they are just text descriptions, and there is much worse shit out there easily.

And comparing our tastes and e-penises is irrelevant.
R7 has the bad tendency, both in Higurashi and Umineko to involve too many fucking variables that makes followig the events a chore, killing the curiosity and suspense the first release provides you.
Supernatural mechanics whose consistency or sense is laughable does not help.

Umineko relies solely on atmosphere, and has tiring, flawed writing that could use some clearer direction.

It's not BAD, but you guy seriously overrate it.

>> No.3656820

'A 20th person did it all, magic exists but does not work the way I showed you' or something like that.

Different person than whom you are referring to; I find myself agreeing.

I enjoyed Episode 1 greatly, but this out-of-the-blue romance stuff in Episode 2 has been pissing me off. It doesn't seem very apparent to me that any of the relationships have been defined more so than in Episode so as to provide additional information on who could have committed the murders (excluding the possibility of the 19th person being the Golden Witch and lol magic). I was sort of hoping that it would have just started on the island with everyone hearing the letter from Maria, but have people react differently throughout the SN than in Episode 1 by asking different questions, such as:

1) How did the killer(s) managed to kill 6 people in the mansion and move the bodies to the storage shed without being spotted by anyone else or leaving any trails?

2) Why were Rudolf's, Kyrie's, Goduh's and Rosa's faces completely destroyed while only Krauss' and Shannon's faces had enough left to properly identify them?

3) Is it truly impossible to open the door to the room where Eva and her husband were killed in without destroying the door/chain?

4) Do the "twilights" play any role in the riddle of Kinzo's gold, or are they the wishful thinking of Kinzo in preparing the magic ritual?

5) Who planted the letter while in Kinzo's room? (probably the weakest question I have listed)

If you make a list of reds related to each of the murders, you'll start seeing the truth. You might also want to use what "battler the chess piece" see with his only eyes as truth too. Disregard everything else and believe only the red.

As for the comments on the VN... if it entertains you, then it's a good VN for you. Tastes and perspective differs from one another. Simply saying something sucks just because it doesn't work for you means nothing.

This is exactly how I feel. Romance has no fucking place in Umineko, 07 just can't fucking write it properly.

What the fuck does that mean? Is that going to fucking help me solve the mystery? No it's fucking not, it doesn't do anything. It's a god damn one liner horrible fans love to throw out when they don't have an argument. 07 seriously messed up Umineko.

I get what you mean, but you can't just abandon logic, for the sake of LOVE. I know you're supposed to care about the characters in the VN, and feel sympathetic towards the "victims" but I don't think that's how you would realistically solve it. 07 is going to pull some bullshit "only luv can solve it" on us, and logic will be thrown out the window.

>> No.3658681

Actually, if you think about it, the romance stuff is more like the idea of reincarnation... Even after the characters "die" on the previous eps, they retain some of the deepest feelings they had. At least, that's what he's probably trying to do I think.

>> No.3658744

>I get what you mean
No you don't.
Many fans have the mentality of "lol magic scene, disregard."
But if you think of it in a literary standpoint, why the fuck would Ryukishi put in so much filler that never happened? Turn the fucking chessboard around. Every magic scene should have some character development or metaphorical meaning.
"Love" used in Umineko is just a different way of saying "bias." If you have no love for the fantasy-side, you're only seeing half of the picture.
You don't "abandon logic, for the sake of love."
No, it's the opposite. The ones who AREN'T looking with love are the ones abandoning logic.
