Is this anime any good? I read the synopsis but I haven't been able to determine the main character yet. What did you guys think of it?

Yes. And as >>101052342 has said, read the VN. The ending of the anime literally leaves you with nothing because that's when a lot of the shit starts. A second season could have done justice, but it never got one.

Its pretty sad to see people trying to salvage this trainwreck. I understand it after wasting so much time on it, but they just need to accept RO7 fucked everything up in Chiru.

No, because some people genuinely believe it, just because Shkanontrice is retarded and a cheap trick by R07 to try and outsmart his viewers.

The motive was dumb, and the Yasu idea was bullshit. A Persona is still the same person, to claim as a fact it isnt, is utter bullshit and a desperate attempt at trying not to violate Knox's law on disguises.

Irrelevant. A visual novel is not comparable to a , uhm, novel.
Also, I started reading "and then there were none", but, at least the beginning, is as dull as the beginning of Umineko.
>>101057633

00 is ok, I guess. Don't have particularly strong feelings for her in any direction.
>>
>>101057633
"No Knox"

Umineko never claimed to be 100% compliant with Knox. Also Shannon and Kanon was given tons of foreshadowing beyond just the obvious. The talk about making other personas was a big hint. It was long established that the Red text is full of semantics and wordplay. Finally at the very start of the story it's stated that Beatrice can only exist if everyone acknowledges her existance. Which means that there's room for someone who doesn't "really" exist to "exist"

Just because you didn't get that the Red Truth was supposed to be half hint, half trick, doesn't mean Umineko screwed up.

Also while And Then There Were None is a pretty great suspense thriller it's a pretty poor mystery.
>>
>>101057633
The motive is far more than what your image implies. She ultimately decided to "kill everyone" only after George proposes to her. She has to seal everything in a catbox, since marrying George will ruin their relationship (by revealing her deformity) and leave her with nothing. So, she blows up the island, and will never have to disappoint George.

>A visual novel is not comparable to a , uhm, novel.
No, it is. Just because it uses pictures and sound to paint a better picture/atmosphere dosent change this.
Especially if it is like Umineko and has no real branches/routes.

It starts slowish, but its short. How far did you get?

>Any recommendations for a novel that is supposedly better than Umineko?
Higurashi, Ever17 (very slow pacing), Remember11, Forest, Chaos Head and Narcissu would be my choices. Allthough they all have flaws.

I feel like most of the Umineko readers can't seem to understand that EP7 is the turning point where main plot doesn't resolve around mystery that becomes just mere plot device to build up mood for romantic theme. Which is the real ending to the novel.

I gave up on solving Rokkenjima mystery after episode 6. Because I've understood the point of the game like Battler did when he was able to use Golden Truth.

The answer was there during EP6 if you were smart enough to catch it. EP7 is just handing them on silver plate to people not willing to believe in magic.

I have no reason to laugh. I am guessing they havent reached the island yet, it picks up pretty quick after that.
But mysteries tend to start boring. Only 200 or so pages, but when some are 70 or so pages before a murder takes place, you can end up taking a while to read them.
Luckily ATTWN isnt like that.

I don't know, I honestly believe that they are incomparable. Because having good music makes an average VN automatically much better for me than an above average book.

It's kind of ambiguous. I believe at one point Battler uses a red from another game to make an argument in the current game. For example Kinzo being dead before the incident was used to apply to alter games. but other reds about the ways people died surely can't apply to ALL games

Umineko guarenteed it was fair in 5 with the Red Truth that the Mystery was solvable. Your whining about an element of the soultion that people were able to figure well before it was over is null, it doesn't even violate Knox rules in the first place since there obviously were clues to Shannon ans Kanon due to people figuring it out.

>If he is an idiot, feel free to make a vid of your own debating him. All you did is say "No he dosent". Great argument there, you really convinced me, then proceeded to say 2deep4u.

I've debunked his idoicy so many times... I guess I can go over the key points.

1)His claim that Red Truths apply to all games at all times is wrong, due to there being several with qualifiers that they apply to all games. This fact means that terms and variables can chsnge unless they are defined.

2)He then contridicts himself by claiming that the Red Truth in 8 about Shannon/Kanon only applies to Berns game

3)His statement on Rosa's motivation is not only absurd but contridicts Rosa's character. There is no way the selfish Rosa who gets angry at the mention of magic would think of performing a magic ritual to bring someone back to life

Yea, you're probably right. I'm curious if you indeed could find an argument how it is in principle possible that all reds count for all games by interpreting them in some appropriate way. But this probably wasn't intended by R07.

A theory is valid as long as there's no way to prove it wrong. That's the cat-box theme

>>101060745
My interpretation is that all we see is wrong, only the red is truth, and Krauss is the culprit in all games. Also, Krauss is playing every single person. The truth is that he is alone on the island. Checkmate, bubb, my interpretation is as right as your interpretation.

Higurashi is as bad as Umineko

The trick is that neither are bad

>>101060984
Which story? The story that is not in red?
>>
>>101060912

I think it's because the red exists saying the mystery can be solved. People think they have to prove their answer (which by the way I bet the most vocal people didn't arrive at themselves) is the only true one.

So i'm going through the VN for my first time ever, with PS3 sprites.
I'm on episode 3, there's no fucking way he can win right?
I mean I can't even imagine if there's a way he can win even with the most bullshit logical reason.

>>101061120
Where does the author talk about "Shkanon"

He talks a lot about Beatrice and Shannon... but where's his talk about Kanon?
>>
>>101061153
It's never stated in red that you shouldn't rely on the red.

He can win, now get out before spoilers.

Well, I guess you figured it out already: He will literally fuck Beatrice at some point.

Higurshi wasnt a mystery. It was a thriller, with gods, conspiricies and mind parasites.

I didnt care about the mystery, it could easily be dismissed as a large conspiricy. The strong point is the characters.
>>
>>101061357
Isn't that the same type of logic Umineko magicfags use? Too bad they are looked down upon by those cheeky fedora wearing chumps.

>Higurshi wasnt a mystery. It was a thriller, with gods, conspiricies and mind parasites.
More of a tragedy, actually.
>>
>>101061284
That would be silly.

I mean, think about this logically. There's no way any author would say "Red words are guarenteed to be true" and then *not* hid important facts in non-red words.

No.
First episode of Higurashi we see the culprit.
You are also told before you buy it, its them all going insane and killing eachother.
Also the options were conspiricy and curse.
Conspiricy makes the mystery kinda pointless because a large faction could easily pull that stuff off.
A curse is magic.

I found that Higurashi had a totally different vibe to Umineko. I didnt care about the mystery most of the time.
>>
>>101061357
You don't get to define what's a mystery you moron.

Saying that Umineko is a better mystery than Higurashi is one statement. Denying that the latter anime is a mystery is just sheer stupidity that you're doing because you can't construct an effective argument.
>>
>>101061847
>I didnt care about the mystery most of the time.

Neither did Umineko romancefags. Especially that in EP5 Battler understood solving the mystery is not the point of the game.

Erika Battler and Beato are the best characters. No one else need apply.
>>
>>101061900
Higurashi didnt have us following a detective trying to solve shit. most of the time was spent just watching frineds play around and interact with eachother.

Umineko has Battler, the red truth, and a constant focus on the murders. You can say they are both the same.

This is where I stopped paying attention to you.
Umineko has a cast that even had Irae fleshed out, to the point where we found his entire reason for becoming a doctor and being so forgiving.

I wouldn't call it an actual romance since it doesn't get much relationship-development, but I suppose that's up to personal definitions of what construes as romance.

The rest is all opinions.
>>
>>101062974
>>
>>101063056
It's a fact that only a small fraction of Umineko characters get significant attention considering the length of the novel. The introduction such a huge fantasy cast really hurt the human cast's screentime and development.
>>
>>101063056
My opinions are facts.

Re-read chapters 5 and 7. While their relationship never blossoms to the point of an actual romantic relationship, the establishment of foundations and chemistry between the pair is certainly there, and it's far more believable and endearing than anything in Umineko.

I meant in the story itself. Of course Mion and K1 get together. R07 couldn't have made it more obvious. K1 even gets the blessing from her yakuza family. Only people that deny it are Renafags.

I thought all the parents were well fleshed-out except Hideyoshi who is barely a character at all. Battler and Beato are wonderful too.
