Oh god, it's you again.

Favourite BGM from EP7 was 7 weights, favourite scene was EP1's shed with goldenslaughterer. I really enjoyed it, especially early-on. My favourite episode was 5 overall, and I really liked zts's discolor track.

I'm not really disappointed about the final answer, after all I was here just for the ride. I liked Ange's story too, I accepted everything, I haven't complained. I don't want to form an opinion, I just wanted to understand what Ryu-chan had to say with this story.

Not the other fag, but I thought EP5 was an amazing climax for EPs 1-4.

- There was a rather good mix between gameboard and Meta - although, I'd have liked a bit more focus on the gameboard and the mystery.
- Erika was a rather good antagonist.
- The fantasy scenes were rather good
- Battler actually puts to use his knowledge from EPs 1-4, and actually manages to look good this episode
- Battler reaching the truth and the battle afterwards was, perhaps, one of the most cool scenes in the game.

I think the gameboard was rather important, actually. We saw that there were chances that the twilights were actually faked. There was also the probability of groups colluding. Solving the epitaph (and this was Battler), making it known to everyone didn't really stop the murders for happening.

Also, the whole deal with Natsuhi was rather good to guess who was behind most of these things, yet, at the same time, there was something rather suspicious about these phone-calls.

I'd like it to be true because i hate Joji, but:

This is very relative, I think. I always thought that very few characters in the gameboard actually managed to shine given a particular episode - like Natsuhi in EP1, Rosa in EP2, Eva in EP3, the cousins in EP4. Of course, there were other scenes that made other characters stand out a bit. However, in my opinion, it wasn't anything particularly worth mentioning, and furthermore, most of those scenes were Meta as well.

I don't know. I'm just going by the fact that EP5 is where my enjoyment for Umineko ended. I simply didn't enjoy the following episodes at all - there were some cool scenes here and there, but that's all I can say about them.

What would be the purpose of the message bottles being written beforehand and then cast out in the fake murder mystery theory? Makes zero sense. Yes, she planned to take on the blame herself, as much as putting the blame on the assumed to be fictional witch that is her is taking the blame. And she planned this well before the events, with the message bottles. It's almost as if she was determined to either become a true witch, or live a normal life with Battler.

The rules of the Catbox are the same. X, Y, Z.
She's a "Bird in a cage" because she's trapped in the catbox where infinite (but not really infinite, she understood that later) can be reach, but all of them lead to a bad ending. The GM still have to abide to the catbox rules. Otherwise, if she can do whatever she wants, she wouldn't feel trapped at all.

>It was "bullshit" made to fit with the themes and clues of the games in Chiru. Pathetic is the will to blindly have Yasu as a deranged serial killer that most people seem to have.

No, i understand Yasu and why she did it. I pity her, she's a sad person that felt cornered, which life was manipulated by many for her crazy rapist father and has a gender problem.


>It's the whole "heart" of Beatrice. To cover up the truth by making herself the culprit. And Bern herself says the Tea Party was partially lies. Not that it was even needed, Kyrie speaks to the goddamn clouds.

Bern also UNDERSTAND YASU WAS PATHETIC MARTYR. SHE MOCKS HER FOR THAT.
Why would her contradict herself in the tea party later? Beside, that scene simply show us Yasu's mindset, and she's far from a deranged serial killer, but more someone that completely give up on everything.

>But let fate decide what? If she killed everyone there was nothing to decide. She made one last gamble to try and have Battler remenber, while hopefully passing the headship to one of the siblings. Makes way more sense that way.

It was never ALL about Battler. "They" couldn't decide their fate. She even said that. Perhaps, one of them was going to find what they seek. Perhaps, they would have be joined and released. Perhaps, someone would have put a stop to that folly.

It was meta-Battler not real Battler. And in any case, maybe he was a masochist with a martyr complex. Ryukishi is simply showing the POWER OF LOVE!

As others have said, if Yasu didn't expect everyone to end up dead, sending off these bottled letters in advance makes no sense. And why would Yasu call her actions a folly if they were a simple game for Battler?

Anyway, can someone explain the "fake murder mystery" theory to me? Because I find it hard to believe everyone on the island would simply play along with Yasu's scheme for no reason even if they didn't know that Yasu was planning to blow up the island in the end. The adults were desperate for money. I don't think they'd have time for a game.

What would have stopped them from simply taking the money instead of playing along with Yasu's scheme? They were pretty arrogant after all. Why jump through a bunch of hoops for a maid? And what about the cousins? They would have had to play dead too. When did Yasu make them his helpers?

Yasu probably had Nanjo and Genji prove who she was, meaning she could make things complicated if she wanted to claim headship. Arrogant as the siblings are, they would probably choose to play a silly game they didn't know was rigged to a bomb and get easy money rather than deal with that, since Yasu didn't want to be the head anyway.

Kinzo? You mean you think that Natsushi and Krauss would have produced Kinzo's corpse for Yasu's game?

Also, where's the in-game evidence supporting that theory? Saying that "Yasu was a pitiful and precious flower that Ryukishi desperately tries to make us sympathize with so he couldn't have been a murderer" doesn't cut the mustard since he did the same thing with a sadistic torturer and murderer who took pleasure in slaughtering 2000 civilians.

1. Yasu might have known where it was hidden especially if the servants were involved in hiding it.
2. Even if he didn't, perhaps Krauss thought it would have been a good idea to have Kinzo "murdered" when other people were dropping dead.

Isn't concealing someone's death for years a crime in Japan? Why would they admit to it?

>> No.6912235

Again, not someone who supports the theory, but here's another guess as to the evidence being used.
-If the fake murders are being played out like in 4, with Battler just getting calls saying "PEOPLE ARE DYING YOU GOTTA DO SOMETHING", they don't necessarily need bodies, since bodies without injuries don't really fool anyone.
-Rosa going to Kinzo's study in 2 with Shannon and coming back saying Kinzo was there
-Again, the Chapel scene in 2 with Beato and the adults
-Battler's "confession" game in 6, where the adults played dead

That's just off the top of my head, though.

These are all suppositions though. Yasu never implies it was all a game. And episode 6 has Battler being in on the trick so that doesn't really fit anyway. And again, why did Yasu send these bottled letters in advance if he didn't expect everyone to end up dead? And why would Yasu call his actions a folly if they were a simple game?

Besides, episode 7 presents Yasu as being desperate, feeling cornered, on the edge and with nothing to lose. And the fact he has a ton of imaginary friends when he's at least 19 and has intense self-loathing due to his mutilated doesn't make him a paragon of mental health either. So this desperate, half-crazy individual is driven to... play a fake murder mystery game?

Yasu is dead. It's Clair who tells the tale. And she's a witch, personification of Yasu's fictions. She even fights with a fantasy detective. Yasu can't do that. So all she says refers to fiction, that has its roots in reality and Yasu's real backstory.

Well the fact it was a game rigged to a bomb, regardless of how slim the chances were of it going off before the game ended, might be the case of the "folly". I'm not gonna defend it anymore than that, though, since thinking a fake murder extravaganza was just the thing to welcome Battler back to the island with (given how emotional he is about everything) is almost brain parasite level stupidity. I think it comes down to people desperately trying to rationalize why Battler would forgive Yasu if she had a clear intention to kill, no matter how caged in she felt.

Natsuhi and Krauss DIDN'T produce Kinzo's corpse for the game. They were planning to have Kinzo "go missing", so the sensible thing would have been to bury the body or dump it in the ocean.

The entire point of Hanyuu offering forgiveness to Takano was proving that she was a god and thus able to absolve people of their sins, in contrast to Takano who considered herself to be a god but neglected that aspect of being one.

Battler doesn't do that. He tells Beatrice she has no sin in the first place and apologized to her earlier. Even if you assume that this is to show the power of love and forgiveness, it makes no sense for Battler to be the one asking for forgiveness. Hanyuu doesn't cry and beg Takano to forgive HER.

>> No.6912373

>>6912361
Battler feels guilty for forgetting his promise. Which I agree is completely retarded since it was simply a few careless words from a 13 year-old kid, but Umineko beats us over the head about how the magnitude of a sin depends on the person being sinned against so Battler considers it a terrible crime and holds himself responsible for what Yasu did.

>> No.6912395

>>6912357
He didn't remember, though, that was the point of his "sin". Also, I doubt Battler would make the instant connection of "people seem to actually be dying" with "hey, I used to read mystery novels with Shannon like forever ago". That's if you believe in the fake murders at all, anyway.

>> No.6912411

>>6912373
Except that the game itself deliberately points out how odd Battler's reaction is, which is not something a narrative does when it wants people to swallow something.

Battler was sympathetic to Beato to a point even before EP5, but it was always with the caveat that she was killing his family and therefore he was going to kill her. There is no sense of "we were mutually torturing one another" in his breakdown. Instead, Beato is framed as the only one being hurt, which is impossible if Battler "understands" she was plotting to kill his entire family--something that would have hurt and tortured him as well.

>> No.6912416

>>6912354
But Takano is sick. If you don't forgive her, you may as well not forgive everyone, including Rika. Well, and excluding Mion, because she doesn't have guts for it. So "nothing new" point is wrong.

What's "nothing new" is some character taking all the blame for other peoples' actions. First, Hanyuu as a god and personification of the curse and decease. Then Beato as a witch.

As much hate as George gets, going through Ep. 7 actually made me feel more sympathy for him than Yasu. Every important scene about the guy centers on how he would take on the world and abandon his family rather than leave Shannon, and in contrast Yasu couldn't bring herself to have anywhere near that kind of courage (like telling him the truth, for one). Also, saying Battler was the one with the sin was pretty weak, but I guess the delusional can't be held accountable when the delusion is "love".

Yasu is shit, and so is Umineko's "solution". I have no idea how people can defend it when it doesn't even begin to make sense at any point. It's a complete non sequitur. It's not even a proper tragic past, since she seems more "slightly inconvenienced" than "tormented".

I never understood why people keep saying this.
Umineko makes a lot of sense to me, how the catbox works, the roulette of fate and everything. There are some things that are left out ambiguous (such the meta world) but overall i can see the scheme of the whole thing.

That doesn't stop Yasu from having expected him to connect the dots. But you also have to keep in mind that you're partially judging the "people seem to actually be dying" based on the first two games.

In EP8 Beato said that the message bottles were basically rough drafts for the actual mystery she was going to present. After those two games, Meta-Battler called her out for being excessively gruesome and cruel. As a result, we end up with EP3, where the first twilight is technically clever instead of gruesome, and everyone suspects it's a just prank until someone other than Yasu kills Rosa and Maria. Maybe Yasu herself realized that she'd gone overboard with those first drafts, and that's why she discarded them?

>> No.6912727

>>6912608
Because secretly being the product of an incestuous relationship between the head and his blood-related daughter when you've grown up being treated as a useless maid is a whole lot of 'slightly inconvenienced'.

Yasu's past maybe not be over-the-top like say Takano's but her suffering is much more psychological and internal. The existence of Beato, Claire, Shannon, etc speaks for that in volumes.

I'm kinda surprised that this is even a problem with some you guys, but at the same time I'm kinda not. The mystery side of Umineko probably brought a lot of logical, puzzle-solving types who don't find any interest in the emotional, human factor of the mystery. When confronted with Yasu's actions, they stop thinking and just declare her/him insane. Yeah, her actions and decisions are illogical (probably because they are emotionally motivated) but they come from a lucid, thinking mind.

Heh, with that kind of loose definition of insanity, I think prisons would be a lot more empty.

Dunno, I haven't read 8 yet, so I've refrained from trying to use any of the leaked info in what I've said. Although throwing the drafts out to sea is a strange way to simply discard them; could be that after things started going bad she threw them out in hopes they would be found and their gruesome quality would draw attention away from the truth, since they have her as the culprit.

Probably depends on who's holding the gun/doing the killing. Stakes are used for Yasu's plot, and because they're related to Beatrice they were probably something Ange obsessed over in the diary. Siestas are presented as basically sure-fire killing machines, so they probably represent the adults with guns once things went to shit.
