Why is Ryukishi07 popular?
Without love it cannot be seen.
Shitty 3deep6u murder mysteries that appeal to edgy angst 16 year old kids in Highschool.
i think its the hands
Cant you see the masterful art?
The bigger than hand, the weaker yandere personality she gets?
His plots suck
His characters suck
His drawings suck
And nothing really makes sense.
But all of those flaws add together and synergize to make his work the greatest area eleven have to offer.
or maybe it's just you who sucks
Same reason as Touhou.
Is he though? I thought the Umineko fiasco surely destroyed any good will people had towards him.
He isn't, at least not anymore.
Wow so many buttdevastated rosafags up until this day still.
Suck it faggots, umineko is a masterpiece, full period.
Did she fuck the timelines so much they merged together?
Because Higurashi was great.
I know you're trolling, but how is a story where the moral is "trust your friends, because you're never alone, and together you can make miracles happen" edgy in any way?
what's rosa have to do with anything? umineko did kill any popularity ryukishi had, literally nobody cares about his new works anymore
This. A lot of the themes in Higurashi were actually positive. Combine that with one the most close-knit and likable group of characters you'll ever meet and you get a pretty heart-warming and tragic story.
But plebs who solely base their opinions by watching the shitty DEEN adaptation wouldn't know.
Here's the thing about Ryukishi, he does really great stuff when he's doing scary shit and murder. I may be a bit of a pussy but I had to pause every time in Higurashi and whenever 'the eyes' came out and save it for another day. Same with Umineko, as more magic and love bullshit is implemented into the story, it gets worse. Making me really want to actually see some murders or someone die. I don't want to see Kanon going to Jessica's school for the festival. I want to see the actual story happen. Unfortunately Ryukishi has way too much shit in the story. And no I'm not being edgy because I 'want to see people die' it's just that that is the point of the story. The romance and friendship is far too abundant and FAR too cheesy.
Rose Guns Days has three ongoing manga adpations, so I doubt nobody cares about him.
>it's just that that is the point of the story.
No. The point of the story was to understand, love, and care about the characters. Then, you're brought to the harsh reality, where someone killed them all, and you have to come to terms with yourself and your love for them, and understand who and why did it. And after that, you have to choose if you want to accept that as the real he/she that you loved, or if you allow the "witch" to take blame, forgive them, and accept that the person you loved was real, and whatever he/she did was not something you should hate that person for.
>browse R07 thread
Why won't you accept the truth?
Also, Krauss was right and predicted it all.
Okay, let's start an Umineko thread.
Rosa is worst mom, Answer is the best OST, I want Erika to investigate my dick, I want to deito Lucifer, goats don't understand because without love it cannot be seen, Schroedinger>Rifyu.
To the moon!
Who cares about that nonsense? All I ever cared about was the mystery of who/how/why, and all those fingerpoiting moments and Beatrice's trollface and whatnot.
Whenever they'd stop and talk about non-mystery things, I'd get the urge to skip.
Call me edgy or whatnot, but without mystery it cannot be interesting. (To me at least)
I am not saying this because I want to post this image, but I am posting this image because of what I'm saying.
I just like puzzles is all and up until end of ep4 I felt like it was a genuine puzzle.
Ryukishi's flaw is that he drags on the point of "without love it cannot be seen" and "sometimes, it's better to believe in magic and let the story be without definitive ending" for, like, 8 episods (okay, 7, if we think that EP1 is just exposition). It's unneeded and, frankly, retarded. He did it in 60+ hours, while Save the Date! does it in 20 minutes.
He also backed out of saying the definitive truth (read: the one and only objective "verity", not just a subjective truth), even though he claimed that there is one.
Otherwise, it's pretty ok.
Why is this thread not working?
I even included all of the elements! (>>100120962)
Unless... Oh well, it can't be helped. It's a deal with a devil, but I will accept this burden.
"Why are Rosatrice fags so delusional? Ryukishi has already shown us the truth!"
Huh? It's not working?
Well, let's try again.
"Shkanonfags are truly blind goats, who can't see the truth!"
Why, why isn't it working?!
I gues, that this thread will die happily. ;_;
Lets not resort to such drastic measures.
There's a time for everything, if a seacat thread doesn't take off, doesn't mean it should be riddled with theories and goats just to keep it alive. Just gives these threads a bad image.
If it's dead, it's dead.
That is unless we post some stakes.
It's not working because people use catalog now. Only us, that were already here, are seeing your replies.
It's not always time.
But when it's time, it's really time.
You forgot the vital pieces of the puzzle.
>how does falling off a cliff destroy a baby's dick?
>Yasu has a dick
>Yasu doesn't have a dick
Don't you have this drawing this anon did of the baby bouncing from the servant's arms and hitting a rock?
because boxing glove cat paw hands
Zun syndrome, when the soundtrack is memorable and the gameplay (or in this case story, since it's a VN) are good, the art doesn't have to be.
Also, fanworks by people who can actually draw.
I, for one like Umineko just because it has no definite ending.
Even though I have to admit that I'd like to see the one single truth
Have you guys thought tha the one single truth may be something like the one single Yasu? I mean, after thinking, each one of us reached a truth, didn't we? And that truth is the one we "love and see", isn't it? We don't accept other truths to be "truer" than ours, do we? Isn't that our one single truth?
Ep 7 tea party, manga confirmed.
Higurashi was memorable for me because of how much it builded its characters. I actually cared for the characters, so when a murder ocurred, it affected me much more than the "Let's solve the puzzle" thing in Umineko.
Yes, a subjective truth. In that, we aren't wrong, and every truth is right. However, Ryu claims not the existence of truth, but the existence of verty, objective and one and only.
>I, for one like Umineko just because it has no definite ending.
The thing that I vehemently hate in Umineko is how Ange is cherrypicking the facts to fit the "truth" into established patterns that are warped by her perception. If you're truly pursuing the truth, be ready to accept that even your parents may be back-stabbing treacherous bastards. There is no middle ground here, nothing to fall back on - if you choose to pursue the truth, you must not let your perceptions warp it as you see fit.
That's what happens when you get emotionally involved. If there are no emotions in your investigation, then there will be no cherrypicking, but Ange was bound to fail from the beginning.
Ange didn't want the truth. She wanted to know who killed her parents. When she found out that her parents may have been the ones doing the killing... well, I guess it was something she couldn't really accept.
And this brings us to a question: Was everyone in Umineko cherrypicking, when they said "without love, it cannot be seen"?
That was kinda the point. Even Erika was "Confirmation Bias: The Movie: The Game: The Character" as an investigator, and she lacked love.
