I see. Umineko is a tale about a transexual maid who went around Rokkenjima's dilation stations, trying to cut roses with hir mangled penis to the point where all the humans on the island, in a gesture of goodwill and common decency, decided to blow up the island and their tainted selves with a giant anti-degeneracy bomb.

Yes, this truly is a tale of love.

You're a blessing. You read the french translation right ? By Pierre Bancov.
I want to know if it's a good translation, I'm thinking about buying it.

I'm training a neural network to generate text based on the scripts of Umineko episodes 1-6. Sample output

>"Aww, it's useless."
>"I have enough of being a witch, but I haven't had enough of being a witch either. So, I want to be a witch right now. But if I were there, I'm sure I'd be able to escape if I don't. ...Will you surrender first, or will I have you staying behind me? ...What happens to those who talk to me? And what do you think, when I'm not around, it'd be that simple and boring? And yet..."
>"...Not bad. ...If we're even close to surrender, that just automatically gets on the line between game and game board."
>"Hahaha... That's good. Otherwise, I'd be able to defeat this one challenge if I kept on playing in the game. ...But when I get bored, I guess you have always been on the edge of losing, and it's getting pretty difficult, right? Wahhahahahaha, *giggle*!"
>Beatrice laughed, almost as though she was making fun of me...
>"...Hahahahaha. That look suits you. You've got all served me, haven't it. ...Just for the first time, I haven't really been bored of you six years. ...*giggle*."
>"Hahaha~. That's just like you, princess. ...*giggle*."
>As Beatrice laughed, she looked down on the balcony...
>...The witch, Beatrice.
>"...You're there. ...I've just been looking around the portrait on the stage. ...Ah, that's true. Aaah, wait a while!"
>"...Beatrice. ...You're in the portrait of the witch, Beatrice. ...Do you really have any idea?"
>"Yeah. ...Beatrice exists. She is practically like a working manager to Battler-sama and Onii-sama."
>"...What does she really like?"
>"...I don't even have a clue what Beato's like about."
>"Beatrice has a really bad portrait. ...I have always heard of her from Battler-kun and Battler-sama."

Yeah Bancov's a god. the translation is a good 9,5/10, way, way better than 90% of japanese games translated in french. Only grip with it is that he changed Rika's "Nipah" with "Miaou" for some reason but otherwise everything's pretty much perfect, to the point that every game/vn french translation looks stale in comparison.
He's a very professional translator and it shows.

Okay thanks for sharing your experience. I'm used to play to VNs in english so I'm a little unsure about reading it in french. But if we have good translations sometimes, it would a waste not to read them.
Bankov looks like a great guy, I saw some interviews of him, he did an incredible work alone on Higurashi.
A last question about it j'ai vu un screen ou deux où il utilisait le vouvoiement, pic related, c'est normal selon le contexte ou c'est son interprétation ? je trouve ça bizarre.
>>
>>20998026
C'est le contexte, dans l'original Satoko parle très souvent un japonais formel et soutenu forcé. A part elle, les personnages se tutoient et se vouvoient de manière naturelle et normale.

>>
>>21002622
>>21002626
The phrase you're looking for (where they can't both be false) is "collectively exhaustive", by the way. Taken from the wikipedia article for "Mutual exclusivity":

>In logic and probability theory, two events (or propositions) are mutually exclusive or disjoint if they cannot both occur at the same time(be true). A clear example is the set of outcomes of a single coin toss, which can result in either heads or tails, but not both.

>In the coin-tossing example, both outcomes are, in theory, collectively exhaustive, which means that at least one of the outcomes must happen, so these two possibilities together exhaust all the possibilities.[1] However, not all mutually exclusive events are collectively exhaustive. For example, the outcomes 1 and 4 of a single roll of a six-sided die are mutually exclusive (both cannot happen at the same time) but not collectively exhaustive (there are other possible outcomes; 2,3,5,6).

Taken from the wiki:
>In his final years, he made the epitaph, in the hopes that Sayo would reveal themselves to him as at this point he had suspicions Sayo was his lost child due to the scar on her foot. After it was solved by Sayo (dressed in her mother's clothing), Kinzo realized her to be his child he was searching for and apologized to Beatrice and told Sayo that her birth name is 'Lion'. He died afterwards, and his death would be covered by Natsuhi, Krauss, Kumasawa, Genji, Shannon, Kanon and Doctor Nanjo afterwards in 1985 and 1986, to create the illusion that he was still alive.

According to the wiki, Kinzo had to have been the one to order the painting, because otherwise there would be no epitaph for Sayo to solve.

One question that I have though has to do with the painting and the epitaph. I seem to remember that the painting was put up first and then later on the epitaph was added. Or perhaps the painting was replaced with another one or something to that effect. Does anyone else recall something like this happening or am I just misremembering things?

Lion and Will were mistakes.
I understand the point of Lion's character but I couldn't give a fuck about her/him/it, neither for Will.
>>
>>21009339
Lion is fine, albeit a tad forgettable in the grand scheme of things. Will was pretty much a fill-in character. If you wanted an Episode without Battler, you could've always picked a new POV character from the preexisting ones. Like Dlanor for example. The same position as Will and with similar qualifications, while already having a pre-established connection with the fans. Plus it could fill in the gaps between her suddenly changing sides between Episodes 6 and 8.

>>21009361
I hate pinching. I have PTSD from it so when I read chapter 7 I wanted to break his/her/it arm every time.
>>
>>21009361
>The same position as Will
She's not male. That's a pretty important qualification for filling Battler's role for Clair/Beatrice.
>>
>>21009432
This. The point is Will is a perfect meta Battler to Lion as the perfect meta Yasu.
>>
My biggest objection to Will is that his constant "think of the motive" feels like a stumbling point of the series. All the tricks, deceptions, and accidents are presented skilfully, but the (important) motives don't feel like things I could figure out from the question episodes.

It's right at the end of the story, and suddenly a character shows up and points a really big finger at the weakest part of it, so it's easy to transfer some dislike to that character. I guess it was meant to prepare me for the "it's not a mystery, it's a tragedy, and it happened this way because the cast enjoy mysteries" argument. Or maybe I still don't understand.

Should I master fucking French in six months so I can read the French translation of Higurashi? Or should I spend 2-3 years grinding Japanese so I never have to worry about translations again?

I already read Higurashi a couple of times, but both of Mangagamer's translations have been sloppy and feel more like throwaway translations, far from perfect. It feels bad to only be able to read it in English, since the translation is so mediocre.

The little I've managed to read of the French translation is pretty damn good. The localized wordplay is clever as fuck so far. "Le SANGlot des cigales" is a pretty good way to give the title a double meaning. I think "Minagoroshi" was localized as "the final resolution" or something like that, which is pretty clever too. It sounds like it's referring to the fact that it's an answer arc but it's actually referring to the plan to kill all the villagers if something goes wrong with Rika.

Ryuukishi confirmed that his characters are all actors and that the Higurashi All Cast Review Sessions are the highest level of meta. But which characters are supposed to be played by the same actor? So far, the only semi-confirmed ones are:

Furude Rika - Bernkastel

Tanashi Miyoko (as a child) - Lambdadelta

Ushiromiya Battler - Philip Butler

Okonogi Tetsuro (Higurashi )- Okonogi Tetsuro (Umineko) - Maurice Mononobe

Tomitake Jirou - James Tomitake

Sakutaro - Sakunoshin (some people suspect that the same actor played Houjou Satoshi, but maybe they just look similar).

All the ages match up. Miyoko and Rika are 10-11, while Lambda and Bern appear to be around 13 or 14. Butler is played by the same actor as Battler after 5 years or so.

I suspect that Tomita (that one kid from Higurashi who got bribed by K1 in every chapter) eventually got his big role as Nonomiya Takeshi in Higanbana. He did a pretty good job, he's one of my favorite characters in the novel.

"Nomura" from Higurashi and Hachijo Ikuko are OBVIOUSLY the same actress. You can see her face in the manga and the anime, and she's identical to Ikuko. She plays a big role in both stories but her characters are always manipulating shit behind the scenes.

Meryl and Stella in RGD are obviously an intentional reference to Lambda and Bern. Same with Yukari and "Reiko" in Higanbana. But they are obviously different actresses with completely different faces, and they aren't even supposed to be incarnations of those witches in-universe or anything of the sort. It's just a reference, it doesn't mean anything.

It's possible that Renoir the youkai also played the weird EP7 Manga version of Yasu.

And no, Mion and Shion are not the same person. They are legit twins IRL and you can even see them interact in the All Cast Review Sessions.
>>
>>21011316
That nurse is so fucking hot and she doesn't even get a name. Her character raises a lot of questions too, because one of the chapters shows her drunk as fuck and hanging out with all the school youkai. She seems to be able to sense the supernatural.

Why are most WTC main characters virgins?

Literally all the club members in Higurashi are virgins. Even Shion is a virgin, despite being nearly 17 and a fucking slut.

Literally all the cousins in Umineko are virgins, including George (the 23 year old ex-incel who is planning to MARRY a woman) and Battler, who is supposed to be a jock/chad. Even adult Ange is a virgin somehow.

RGD, on the other hand, is full of literal prostitutes who fuck and sell their asses for a living. Even the most innocent-looking girls turn out to have a past of sex slavery, complete with those crazy my-whole-body-is-a-clit drug injections you often see in mindbreak hentai.

And the protagonist of Higanbana is a non-virgin who got her asshole humiliated and degraded on a daily basis for half a year, even though she's literally 11. A literal KID is less of a virgin cuck than ANGE, the biggest loser in the entire metaverse.

Why is Ange so pathetic? A girl with her looks should be able to get Amakusa to fall in love with her. But instead, she gets killed without remorse.

I think the motive in general is the hardest thing to figure, probably due to the lack of proper answer you always ended up wonder if you were correct about some things. Battler completely forgiving Beatrice also really made things confusing.

You don't care about Yasu?
>>
>>21011530
Yasu was never a man, though. A baby so young that its balls didn't have the time to influence its development in any way is not even a boy in my book. And he became an eunuch soon after that. Chromosomes don't really mean anything. Yasu is neither a boy nor a girl.

I mean, we are all girls in the womb before going through with it or switching to male. That doesn't mean all men are really girls.

It would be different if Yasu got fucked up as a young kid, because even at that age he would look slightly more masculine than a girl. But as a baby? That's just a step away from being still in the womb, so it's not really a big deal.

George would tell that fucking crazy eunuch to fuck off, but not because she was originally a man (which she wasn't). It's because he wants to have a proper female waifu, not a weird in-between undeveloped fuck with no gender.
>>

>>21011594

Semantics, you know what I mean. People wanted Beatrice to be their perfect blonde waifu with huge breasts with no flaws


>George would tell that fucking crazy eunuch to fuck off, but not because she was originally a man (which she wasn't). It's because he wants to have a proper female waifu, not a weird in-between undeveloped fuck with no gender.
No, he wouldn't. R07 confirmed he would have accepted him. George rejecting Yasu would have gone with the message of the story anyway.

>>21011467
>the protagonist of Higanbana is a non-virgin
It's fucked up because all the other lolis are fantasizing about Kanamori, since he's a fairly attractive and popular teacher. But the one girl that actually gets to have sex with him is being raped, blackmailed and humiliated to the point of wanting to kill herself.

Let's ignore what the fake me said about purity and storks not being able to cry.

What are storks most well known for in terms of mythology?

Delivering babies, of course. Now, if we view WTC as one connected work, then perhaps it is as my dear Bernkastel said.

"Both the past and the future are... superscriptions of data."

The future has already been written. But when we get to that future, perhaps the past itself shall change.

And in the heavens, red and blue clash. But what is the purpose of the clash, the duel? Does it not seem strange that that nitwit, Furude Erika, used her blue truth as a single shot in the duel against Battler and Beatrice?

The blue truth is meant to be used like a machine gun. And yet, Erika...

Why didn't Keiichi, Mion, Shion and Rena just throw rocks at Teppei, vandalize his house every day, fuck up his motorbike or just beat the ever-loving shit out of him in broad daylight? It's 4 vs 1. Eventually, the guy would be forced to leave town.

Even if it got them arrested, it would be a better solution than committing murder or waiting for the authorities to find proof that he's abusing her. Dude is just a lazy fuck who can't do house chores, so I'm sure he'd just leave if staying in the village got him beaten up every other day. It's more trouble than it's worth.

I guess he's a pretty scary guy and probably dumb enough to actually stab someone during a fight. But they could catch him off-guard with minimal witnesses and permanently break his fucking legs using metal bats, without him ever knowing who the fuck did it.

It's not like a Hinamizawa villager would just turn Mion in. They'd probably just pretend they didn't see anything because nobody likes that guy anyway.

Also it would cause the abuse to Satoko to get worse, and she would probably tell them to stop and call the cops on them because she thinks that if she doesn't put up with the abuse Satoshi will never come home.

"The promise... with Battler. It was... Yasu. It was... Yasu."

"All other theories... are pointless. R07 said it... he confirmed it. The truth is what the author says is the truth..."

The goats repeated the phrase, like a mantra. After all, the true author of the work, R07, said that Yasu was the culprit. The truth was there, for all to see. What use was there looking at the work in any other angle?

There are multiple characters with that name created by a single person (Yasu) for different purposes. This fact, and what those purposes are is pretty much outright stated in black text in EP6 and EP7 (unless the author was randomly lying for no apparent reason).

Plus that'd just be the start of it. You'd also be raised as an orphan and made to work as a servant for the very person who threw you from said cliff, who would go about their life as if nothing had ever happened. Then there's the matter of falling in love only to be left behind, falling in love AGAIN and worrying the same will happen, and falling in love a third time for good measure just to give you more conflicted feelings. Also having no friends besides a 9 year old girl whose abusive mother was responsible for the death of your own mom, who was imprisoned and raped by your father, who was also her father, to sire you. Then there's the fact that everyone you've ever loved is actually related to you, and that your dream of starting a family of your own to make up for a life's worth of loneliness can never be fulfilled because you're unable to bear children.

Lion is a magic character that represents a "miracle" version of Yasu, that's why his/her world is literally full of magic bullshit, golden roses and stuff like that. Hell, Will can interact with the family despite being a non-existent meta man.

The "real" Lion never existed in any fragment, but he would definitely be a relatively normal dude. Magic Lion looks androgynous as fuck because it's more comfortable for Yasu to imagine. Lion's entire philosophy about gender and shit is something that s/he came up with at some point in his/her life, but that life was conjured up by Yasu's imagination anyway.

Lion can be whatever gender you want, that's the whole point of the character. They are a fantasy character just like the others.

There is nothing about that picture that suggest that. The point of that picture is to show that Willard doesn't care, making him the perfect partner for Lion.

Lion is Yasu's dream, Yasu dreams to be complete, the fall is the point in which Yasu's life fell apart. Lion is "complete" in a way Yasu isn't.
>>
>>21014089
That sounds like an interesting interpretation, but to me Lion being a fantasy character would go against the point of their existence. They're supposed to show that a happy life was possible for Yasu, not just as an imaginary outcome, but as a real, tangible world. That's what gives it weight when it's revealed that even in such a miraculous world, they still end up dying.
As for the fantasy elements, the golden Roses could easily just be ornamental ones covered in gold leaf. Will's probably been placed on the board in a similar manner Erika was. Kinzo being alive can be attributed to having a stronger attachment to life with Beatrice's child still there for him.
>>
>>21014191
>There is nothing about that picture that suggest that.
"I've developed a bit of a complex about it". I agree that this doesn't necessarily indicate self-doubt about his gender, but it's still closer to that than to being a relatively normal dude or being "anything you want".

I see Lion's world as a fragment from outside the catbox. But now that I think about it, it'd be weird for Bern to be able to make something like that into her gameboard.

Depends on what you mean by "fantasy character". Lion representing an achievable happy life for Yasu doesn't necessarily imply physically existing in some fragment with more ideal circumstances. It doesn't even matter since all magic scenes still talk about "reality". That world doesn't need to exist outside of fiction/fantasy to still be real and tangible.
>>
>>21014253
people that look androgynous dont automatically question their gender identity

>>21014327
He's not questioning his gender identity. He's keeping it hidden because he has a complex about his look and it allows him to be Yasu's dream, someone who is accepted by his partner regarding of his sex.
>>
>>21014322
I guess. Stuff like that is often left pretty vague so you're free to interpret it how you wish. The true nature of the meta world, how it relates to reality, the sea of fragments, the catbox, etc.

The fact that Lion's world ends in tragedy suggests that the androgynous blonde Lion with a perfect life that we see in EP7 is in fact a magical character existing in a fantasy world.

Why does Lion's world still end with the Rokkenjima massacre? How the hell does it happen if there is nobody there to explain to Rudolf and Kyrie that there's a bomb to rewrite the events of that night? Why would they even do it if there is no Yasu and therefore no 2 billion credit card? They'd be blowing up the gold and get nothing out of the deal. And why can't other versions of Lion exist in worlds where the siblings don't fight each other? Why is this doomed version of Lion the only one that can be Yasu's miracle?

It all suggests to me that Lion and his/her world, as presented in EP7, is all fantasy. The reason it ends in tragedy despite it barely making sense and there are no other worlds where Lion survives... is because Lion is the dead cat.

"Lion" never existed in the real world, Natsuhi fucked him up and turned him into Yasu. His world and every possible timeline he exists in as "Lion" are all imaginary and trapped in the catbox ANYWAY. Lion's world can only end in tragedy because that's what happened IRL. He's a fantasy that gets overwritten by the reality of what actually happend on the island.

That's why Will tells Lion to "resist" and not acknowledge the fact that s/he was shot in the chest, even though it would make no sense for any other character. This version of Lion is not bound to any particular world, s/he is literally FANTASY and has the potential to ignore reality, the whole catbox shit and what happens at the end of each fragment.

Any other character, including the gameboard pieces or someone like meta-battler, has to accept the fact that they can't live past October 6, because the catbox situation ends after the second day and there is only one result: the island exploded. But Lion is different, because he's a fantasy version of Yasu existing in a perfect fantasy world where everything is perfect. He's not tied to reality and doesn't have to accept Bern's shit. He can live beyond that day and have the happy life that Yasu desired, just like all the other fantasy creatures have their own worlds and lives. He can even be of either gender, unlike the "real" Lion/Yasu.

Will says it himself near the end of EP7. Bern is trying to apply mystery logic to a fantasy world. She is trying to lock Lion's world up inside the catbox, tricking Lion into thinking he belongs there. But once he realizes the truth, he doesn't have to deal with any of that shit and can live on. At least until EP8 when all the fantasy creatures on Rokkenjima are put in danger.

Lion exists in the sea of fragments. Depending how you see the story - the sea of fragments is either a bunch of stories or real parallels universes.

>Why does Lion's world still end with the Rokkenjima massacre?
I mean, that assumes Bern was telling the truth.
>>
>>21014667
All the different gameboard worlds are part of the catbox. They are all possible results of Beatrice's roulette, but they have to end the same way.

But Lion's world isn't part of it. It's a complete fantasy from beginning to end, since Lion was never a thing to begin with, so it doesn't have to adhere to the catbox rules or "match the result" of the island exploding at the end. Lion's world exists on the level of the "fantasy narrative" of the regular gameboards, not on the level of the "mystery narrative" where the human pieces actually perform the tricks.

what's the deal with lambda and bern anyway
in tsubasa it's revealed that bern manipulated takano but it's hanyuu that made rika suffer the same fate over and over again and the game was left with no goal because she forgot the rules halfway through, was it lambda that gave hauhau her powers ?

I think you are confused

>Lion exists in the sea of fragments. Depending how you see the story - the sea of fragments is either a bunch of stories or real parallels universes.
The sea of fragments is an infinite collection of possible worlds that can exist as a result of even the smallest change in variables.

But it's implied in both Higurashi and Umineko that those "possibilities" only become real parallel worlds once they are EXPERIENCED by a consciousness and become real. Until that happens, they are just possibilities. Imaginary worlds.

Rika and Hanyuu turned hundreds of "possible worlds" into actual parallel worlds by travelling through them and experiencing them. That's why those worlds alone resonated with some of her friends and gave them strange deja-vus that allowed them to avoid commiting the same mistakes again.

But they don't experience even the faintest echoes of memories of other possible worlds, even though ANYTHING, no matter how bizarre, could happen within the sea of infinite possiblities and completely change their lives, the way they were raised, the people they met or how many siblings they have. They only occasionally have presentiments and deja-vus about things that happened in worlds Rika went through (meaning they were made real and exist as parallel worlds).

Literally every possible variable that could have been different since the beginning of the universe leads to a completely different possible world in the sea of fragments. But only a few hundreds of those possible worlds were actually turned into REAL alternate universes by the act of Rika experiencing them (and in turn, making every person in that world experience them too).

I mean Lambda maniuplated takano
>>
>>21014805
Higurashi/Umineko parallel worlds doesn't seem to work in the same ways as typical parallel words too, see for example Lion's world being such a low probability instead of a yes/no choice.

In the same fashion, Takano's parents seem to die in every scenario but one.
>>
>>21014810
Hanyuu literally a Kami nobody gave her powers. It was uncertain if Rika ascension was planned or not because what she experienced was one process of ascension.
>>
>>21014814
I think that takano's parents die in every scenario that hanyuu can jump into
in my headcanon, hanyuu can only go into the world where the disaster can happen, because she needed rike to die for her powers to be used fo the first time
just like bern searching for a very rare fragment where lion is alive, bern searched for the fragment where 34's parent didnt die, since takano still got on the train
>>
>>21014789
It's all a metaphor. Takano never interacted with any sort of paranormal entity like Lambda. Even the Hanyuu scene was a bit sketchy.

It most likely wasn't even a "game" in the first place. They call it a game, but it was more like a thing that happened. Lambda noticed Takano's strong will and used her powers to guarantee that everything would go her way if she never lost her willpower. It's just a metaphor, a magical interpretation of what actually happened. Of course someone so devoted to a goal would reduce the chances of failing to almost zero, you don't need a witch rooting for you from a higher plane of existence.

As a result of that, Hanyuu tried to save RIka and ended up in a century long struggle against this one persistent human whose strong will and determination accounted for every possible obstacle and guaranteed that even bad luck wouldn't be able to fuck up her carefully crafted plan.

It wasn't a literal witch game. It was just a struggle between a human who literally shaped fate and a god who wasn't happy with it. Lambda just watched it all unfold eating popcorn.
>>
>>21014805
Does this mean that dozens of alternate versions of Satoko had to experience torture at the hands of Shion, all because of Hanyuu?

If she had just let Rika die the first time it happened, no alternate fragments would've been made real. The possibility of Shion going nuts would've been there, within the fabric of space-time, but it would just be a scary possibility that never came into fruition, rather than a literal real parallel world actually experienced by humanity as a whole that will forever exist in the higher planes alongside the original world.

No wonder RIka feels guilty about all the shit that happens to her friends. None of that shit would've had a chance of happening if she didn't keep bringing alternate worlds from the imaginary plane into actual existence in the metaverse.

To be fair magic literally exists in Higurashi.

But it literally depends on how you see the story, really.

>>21014814
That's the thing. Anything could happen within the sea of fragments, including a world where Miyoko's dad had a hard life growing up and ended up raping his daughter in the ass after coming home drunk. If you change the right variables, you could make that world a reality. It's out there.

The thing is, such a world literally doesn't exist as a real world that anyone has actually experienced and lived through, because the only beings capable of turning those possiblitities into real split timelines never made it happen. Hanyuu didn't have the power to go that far back in the first place, let alone the motivation or the knowledge to make Miyoko's dad turn out that way.

So no version of Miyoko in the entire multiverse has ever experienced such a thing, ever. Despite the fact that it's technically a possible world and that fragment is out there, waiting for a witch to experience it as a story and, by doing that, make it real.

Ryukishi07, who was interested in video games, anime and manga, studied at a vocational school that specialized in art. During that time, he wrote doujinshi. During his time in college, he tried to write manga and novels, but he came to realize that "No matter your passion for something, without skill, you can never make it as a professional." One day, he met with a colleague from a theatre troupe, and he was inspired to write a play called Hinamizawa Bus Stop (雛見沢停留所 Hinamizawa Teiryūjo) which he submitted to a contest that he later lost.

One of Ryukishi's younger brothers, who was inspired by the success of Type-Moon's visual novel Tsukihime, suggested that he and Ryukishi create their own sound novel. Ryukishi would ultimately restructure Hinamizawa Bus Stop into the episodic visual novel series, Higurashi When they Cry.
After graduating from the vocational school, he dreamed of becoming a video game developer, so he focused on finding a job at a video game manufacturer. However, none of his attempts at this were successful. Reluctantly, he took up a position at a menswear store, from which he got inspired, but after a few months, he tentatively took up an offer for a civil service position based on the civil service test that he had taken during the job search.

In a 2012 interview with Damien Bandrac for the Journal du Japon, Ryukishi07 said that:

Initially, my audience was otaku who attend Comiket, which are a very small fraction of Japanese otaku, themselves a small part of Japanese people in general! I never thought for one second that I could be read, published, edited at the other end of the planet, in France... As for Higurashi, I never thought that people outside Japan might be interested. Umineko in particular is a text that even Japanese people can have difficulty reading. So, to imagine that foreigners have made the effort to read it, understand it, and translate it, is an indescribable happiness to me.

His writing has been described as alternating between "macabre scenes and schoolboy humor". He has said that, "a story should be like a roller coaster. That is to say before writing a really cruel scene, I have to lift the people's spirits, for example, with a fun scene... Before writing a scene of pure despair, we must go through scenes of hope. And indeed, when I write, all of this amuses me very much."

Now we get into the "WEIRD SHIT", where Battler and Beatrice's game might actually have impact outside of Rokkenjima.

That is, for each game Beatrice wins, magic does exist. But if Battler manages to deny her, he might actually get to deny magic.

This would make things very weird because essentially Bernkastel is spending all her time trying to eliminate magic, and therefore, herself.

But it was always somewhat questionable that Hanyuu intervened to save Rika from her destiny in the first place, and in such a bizarre way, too.

If you understand what magic is, it already exists.

Bernkastel exists beyond magic. Umineko's world is just a small island in the sea of fragments.

Well the moon is, funnily enough, associated with Jessica. As much as Kanon goes on about milady shining like the sun.

I suppose the symbolism there would be Kanon is the sun, and Jessica is just a reflection of his own brightness?

Well, Kanon is the only one of the Yasu personas with love in it. (Yoshiya, in addition to being a Jesus name, has "ai" in it)

Jessica's association with the moon also ties into the theme of illusion. In that moonlight is an illusion, it's just a reflection of the sun.

But then again, the moon itself isn't an illusion. You can see it during the day.

I don't know. Remember how much of a banger dreamenddischarger is and then we follow up that moment with Lambda and Bern saying it was merely an act on Beato's part?

The music too might just be a pointless illusion
