it's 2019 and i still love Umineko. And sometime i feel lonely. Yet i'm a bit frustratred by episode 7 and 8. Sometimes I wonder how Umineko would have been if Ryukishi's best friend had not died.for years now i waited for a Beato figure but it will never happen i guess. I developed a strange affection for this character. Yet I do not consider her as one of my waifu, however she remains very important to me.Umineko thread i guess ?
>>21476572Manga fixed EP8
>>21476578It improved it but it didn't require a fix in the first place.
>>21453808you might want to go here, or not, it's your life
For some reason, implying his friend's death made him write worse feels really disrespectful/dismissive to me.
>>21479274If anything it made it better. Just look at all the stuff about overcoming loss and moving on with your life in Episode 8
>>21476572Same. Beato holds special meaning as being the core of Umineko. Even if she may not be my absolute favorite, she's undoubtedly the symbol of the series.
So can we agree this is the new /07th/ thread for now ?Anyway, thanks so much to the guy who asked about the Clarinet Quintet and Piano Concert of Umineko, it's amazing and I love it. I'm still surprised it is only available on Nyaa and not on AB or Bakabt.
>>21476572His friend died when he was working on EP6, that was actually the episode who was more affected by that
>>21480546I'd put Rosa above Kyrie, but otherwise I agree.
>>21480546I'd put Kyriet above everyone else, but otherwise I agree.
>>21476578how so ?
>>21480683Not him, but off the top of my head->Confession made Yasu's struggle much more impactful. >Erika vs Battler went from a generic puzzle to a relevant logic battle that was like a rematch for her failure in Episode 5.>The hide and seek was a much more natural way to segue between each character than the quiz tournament and allowed for some great comic relief.>Clarifying Battler's connection to Tohya may the later's struggle feel more meaningful.>Having The characters fight against personified interpretations of themselves from the future felt more emotional than having it be just a bunch of faceless goats.
>>21480702Probably Rena. Girl is strong as all hell.
Are the Pachinko CG available anywhere?
>>21482172https://exhentai.org/g/966455/1b557735c8/Also you can find the artbook scans here.https://exhentai.org/g/943565/c87b2b80de/
>>21482205Thanks. Those CGs are quite low quality compared to the ps3 ones overall, but still worth having.
>>21482293Yeah, they're pretty hit or miss, but still much appreciated.
07th expansion isn't even going to be at summer comiket.
You may not like it but this is what peak magical performance looks like.
Hello anons, it's been a real while since I've read Umineko so my memory is a little hazy regarding what really happened or not on the island, the meaning of the first four episodes, how the meta world functions or the distinction to be made between Rokkenjima prime, the meta world and such.Just to confirm : everything shown by Bernkastel to Lion and Ange was the real truth behind the Rokkenjima incident, while the first four EPs were either fairy tales written by Yasu (Legend and Turn) or a filled-with-shonen-tropes recollection attempt of the events from an amnesiac incompetent crying knight on a white horse willing to understand the first writer (Banquet and Alliance), right ?My questions : what is the meta world? Was it part of the bottles/books or was it supposed to represent the readers? What really happened? Is Beatrice a woman in the meta world? Did Yasu really give up on the motorcycle, at the end? Bern and Lambda were respectively a cat and a cake? Should I finally read the manga and find the answers/remember things myself since I'm unable to find a downloadable version of the visual novel with original sprites and that I don't want to use the PS3 ones or the steam version because I don't like them and that I'm poor?
>>21480722Sometimes less is more, the manga seems to miss this.
>>21476572I want to fuck EVA.
>>21484074Everything that bernkastel shown to lion and ange was what really happened on rokkenjima, aka the truth the ange was searching for, while the four episodes were yasus stories about how she'd commit the murders and battlers truth was to basically show that witch couldn't do any of those murders.Honestly i don't remember at all what the meta world was, i think it was basically a place where witches could actually use their magic and battler could basically live in for a duration of the game.And you can use the original sprites on steam, you have a choice beetwen original sprites and pachinko sprites which you can change at all time during the game
What do you think about the manga revealing the content of Eva's diary?
>>21484125I disagree. In this case having a complete understanding leaves you feeling more fulfilled.
>>21485230Having everything spelled out to you explicitly isn't necessary for complete understanding or being fulfilled.
>>21485251No, but never having the answers you thought up confirmed or denied and being left in a state of uncertainty forever leaves something to be desired.
>>21485253So you're saying that a story which lets you answer most questions it poses with near certainty (if you were paying any attention) is somehow still bad/incomplete if the author doesn't come down and explicitly confirm or deny everything?
>>21485253A major part of ep8 is literally about how certain answers are better left unconfirmed.
>>21483466Say it in red.
>>21485280Are YOU saying that being given the answer somehow detracts from the enjoyment of the series?
>>21484125But that's not even what most of anon's post was about. Stuff like the changes to the battle of the golden land and the hide and seek have nothing to do with the answers.
>>21485372I'm saying that the additional stuff/answers don't make the story better, as suggested in >>21476578 and >>21476731
>>21485280If you write a mistery story but in the end start implying that truth doesnt matter a lot of people will hate you, i understand Ryukishi intentions but that's the main reason of the hate that Umineko received not only here but mostly in the japanese boards.
>>21485396This. Thematically it works, but I can understand how some people might get annoyed.
>>21485396And I'm glad he still made the story the way he wanted to despite all of this.
>>21485381>changes to the battle of the golden land and the hide and seekEpisode 6 was over in episode 6. Hide and seek is the only thing where my post doesn't apply, but I didn't want to quote it separately.
>>21485403>Thematically it worksThat's the only thing that matters. Appealing to people who want everything to go their way just because something seems like it follows a certain genre isn't the best practice if you want an actually good story.
>>21485413>Episode 6 was over in Episode 6I'm not sure what you mean by this.Even Erika vs Battler works better, not because it gives us the answers to Episode 5, but because it gives Erika a chance to overcome her past failure, and shows just how dangerous she is by having her overwhelm Battler.
>>21485454>it gives Erika a chance to overcome her past failureYou don't need a fight which explicitly references "questions" in the previous episodes to give her a chance to overcome her past failures (and I don't mean literal failures to solve a puzzle). This is implied at the end of episode 8 in that scene with Battler.>and shows just how dangerous she is by having her overwhelm BattlerHow was that not already made clear?
>>21485480It's still better than an arbitrary logic puzzle with no connection to the actual story. At least Ange's one with Beato is symbolic of Ange's starvation for the truth.
>>21485499>no connection to the actual storyAdding references to past events and thus basically retreading old ground doesn't make something more connected to the actual story of episode 8. And not everything has to be more than just a short battle between two characters who are fun to watch together. This is especially true when the focus is shifted more towards Ange and Beato, as you mentioned.
>>21485533So it's subjective.
>>21485554Yeah, subjective as in "not necessarily better by default".
>>21485492>>21485500Cute. Also by the same artist.
>>21485562Nor worse either
>>21485576It can be worse if you operate under certain assumptions, like retreading past events for no reason being bad.
This feels highly reminiscent of the PS3 vs original discussions.
>>21485630it's weird how originals almost always happen to be superior.
How about all the cute/heartwarming stuff the manga added? Like Beato's stint with Natsuhi, Rosa reconciling with Maria, Shannon spraypainting a cute message from Beato as a prank, etc.
>>21485640Only if you follow the "The original is perfect in every way and no changes made could ever improve on it" mentality.
>>21485572>>21485634cute, i'll look for more of his work.
>>21485645The manga's only worth is for its good panels and stuff like this. It's a shame how it tries to be more by fucking with the story and making it contradict its own message.
Umineko will always be a controversial work among their fans, that's for sure.
>>21485647it's weird how that almost always happens to be the case with good stories. obviously you should change the disingenuous "perfect in every way" to merely "really good".
>>21485640well that's a fact.
>>21485649Bullshit. The message is uncompromised regardless of the changes it makes. You don't have to obstinately deflect any changes as being negative. Admitting that something can be improved on isn't the same as calling it lacking.
>>21485689>Without LoveHaving the author explicitly explain things makes them seeable even without love, thus undermining the whole message. Having the author explicitly give answers after making the point of how not every answer has to be confirmed by the word of God to have meaning undermines the whole message.
You only say originals are better beacuse of the good memories you had with them and the memes they were used in
>>21485742I've read umineko with the PS3 sprites first and I still think the originals are better. Can't imagine that I'm the only one.
>>21485645Yes i liked that scenes.
>>21485722No, it doesn't. The important part isn't the truth, it's the personal interpretations made from the truth. That's what Ange's final battle against Bernkastel was all about. Even if her family is dead and her parents are murderers, she can continue to believe in the loving family she knew. Giving the readers the whole truth still leaves room for them to draw their own interpretations with regards to meaning.
>>21485756I'm the opposite. I read the original first and swapped to PS3. I like the original art. I just so happen to like the PS3 art more. If I seem hostile towards the original art it's only because supporters of it are constantly shit-talking the version I prefer simply because they're defensive against art that appeals to a more broad audience.
>>21485771>No, it doesn't."Without love it cannot be seen" is literally and provably false in the universe constructed by the manga, as you can clearly "see" just by having basic reading skills and not having the meta-knowledge to close the manga before it actually ends. While in the VN, each person can agree and disagree based on their interpretation of the story. Nothing in the story itself will confirm or deny this with absolute certainty. I don't know how anyone can believe that this isn't a change which contradicts the main message.>The important part isn't the truth, it's the personal interpretations made from the truth.The impact of this is lessened significantly when the story's narrative doesn't actually follow through with it. Actions speak louder than words, and all that bullshit.
Anyone up for a double date?
>>21486005they would end up completely ignoring the males to get closer to each other
>>21486070What sort of stuff would Erika and Dlanor do on a date?
>>21486070That's the whole plan.
>>21486070>>21486088>>21486143Something like this is sure to happen
Believing oneself to be perfect is often the sign of a delusional mind
How did she go from this >>21485887 to this

>>21486470Moe Featherine when?

ohh desire!!! - my reaction if a beato figure is ever realeased.
>>21488508There's that $2000 one.
>>21485469Why is Ange ALWAYS showing off the crack between her butt cheeks?
>>21488655Good boys and girls don't stay up with their ears against the wall. Make sure to get plenty of shuteye.
>>21488725Cause it's hot. Fuck off humiliation anon
Satoko is a kid! What a loser!
>>21488742>hating humiliation while also appreciating Ange's assA human body can't be hot unless you ironically like it and enjoy mocking its shameful nature. You can't appreciate Ange's body without wanting to see her naked, degraded and humiliated.
>>21488742>tfw the crack of Ange's ass is the same color as the rest of her skin but it looks dark because her fat cheeks project a shadow in betweenPathetic! Even a loli with a flat butt like Satoko has something as shameful as a shadow in her ass crack!
>>21486921So is Hanyu supposed to be a metaphysical 5D alien creature with the ability to naturally cross between parallel universes, adopt a physical human shape to breed with humans and survive beyond her physical death as a meta-ghost? That's pretty damn cool.Matsuribayashi heavily hints at the fact that she and her tribe were spiritual aliens born in the fifth dimension.
Hanyuu feeling Rika m*******ting.
>>21488822>>21488835This is why I hate you. You've made it impossible to enjoy ass normally in these threads.
Confused Nappi is cute.

The unpredictability of Angsty
What would Umineko be like if it were an eroge?
So what VN are you playing to wait for Ciconia guys ?I'm playing S;G 0 don't bully>>21491579I think it would change a lot my perception of it so no. I miss the lack of doujins and good porn but I think it's a good compromise. Umineko is perfect the way it is in its genre.
When I was a kid I nearly watched the umineko anime but couldn't because the torrent I downloaded was corrupted.Now that I've read the vn I'm so glad I dodged that bullet.
>>21491618You could say that it was a miracle
>>21491609Okay, different question. What would an Umineko fan eroge be like?
>>21491579Considering how pevert Ryukishi is, it would be full of humiliation,guro/gore and big tits.
>>21491579>>21492359A high school AU where Battler can pursue all of the female cast.
>>21492679why the female cast only ?
>>21492679>female cast onlyHey, fuck you. I'm going for that Battler x Kanon ending.
>>21485253But umineko is also about this. This is about finding your own truth giving us all the answers is completely retarded.
>>21492699>>21492856Sure, you can do that too. I also considered having Ange as a potential female protagonist who could go after people too.
>>21492873Again, it's not about truth. It's about meaning. Even when presented with cold hard facts, without love you can't see past them and understand the hidden meaning.
>>21493118Why show it after making the point of how it's not about the truth? Seems hypocritical and retarded.
>>21484867what? what manga?
>>21493163Because people wanted to know.
>>21493163Because the goats cried so hard they had to give them the answer.
>>21493384That doesn't make it contradict the main message any less.
>>21493384>>21493391>>21493449More like because after several years had passed Ryukishi decided he'd given everyone enough time to think it through and delivered a satisfying conclusion.
>>21493457>delivered a satisfying conclusionPerhaps for absolute retards who lack any kind of basic reading skills or the will to reread the story they supposedly care enough about to desire "knowing" the "answers". For everyone else he already did that in EP8.
>>21493462Dude, fuck off. I read the whole of Umineko 3-4 times before the manga even came out. Let people enjoy new content for fucks sake.
>>21493477Where did that post say anything about you not being allowed to like something? It's not about that. It's about lazy retards claiming that the given conclusion is somehow not "satisfying" for them, so the story needs to be augmented to blatantly contradict its own themes. It seems like you're trying too hard to find a rational justification for liking the manga when you don't need one in the first place.
>>21493519>It seems like you're trying too hard to find a rational justification for liking the mangaNo, I'm trying to explain to you that the manga doesn't contradict the themes and actually made some nice additions to the story, but you just deflect any and all points I try to make on principle with the same level of pigheadedness as OG art purists who insist that everyone must experience the story the way they first did a decade ago.
>>21493537>the manga doesn't contradict the themesIt's actually pretty easy to see how it does. Going out of your way to show how the truth isn't everything and then literally handing it out on a silver platter is a blatant contradiction of the themes. You can't deny this without having some sort of learning/reading disability.>NoYou wouldn't feel the need to defend this unwinnable position if that were the case. You'd just accept this flaw for what it is and move on.>you just deflect any and all pointsYou haven't made a single valid point about it not contradicting itself.
>>21485817>"Without love it cannot be seen" is literally and provably false in the universe constructed by the mangaCan you elaborate ?
>>21493616"Without love it cannot be seen", yet you can literally "see" it with your own two eyes by reading the manga. Thus it actually can be seen, even without love.
>>21493623But by that he means the whole picture, you can see the who and the how but you don't have the why and that's what matters the most.I haven't read the manga and I dont want to, so maybe i'm completely wrong on this.for Sh/kanon being oppenly showed I completely agree tho.
>>21493644Yeah, that phrase refers to a lot of different interconnected things, not just things directly tied to Beato. But denying one major meaning of the phrase in the story when the rest of it goes to great lengths to not abuse the author's power to force a certain interpretation makes the message much less powerful.
>>21493665Fuck I completly got it now and I'm fucking retarded for not understanding earlier what did you mean.
>>21493665Deconfirming rosatrice was a good thing
>>21493724The story itself does a pretty good job of giving you the tools to confirm or deconfirm it in your own head and decide for yourself. Anything more than that is bound to fuck with the core of story and lessen the impact of its message.
>>21493724There are rosatricers living in this world right now. You are free to just reject the word of the author even if he makes 10 different additions to his story expliaing everything in detail
>>21493748The core of the story was about more than that. Giving the answers to some closed room logic puzzles doesn’t undermine the message about being more open-minded and learning to look past the surface. For me Umineko has always been a story first and a mystery second.
>>21493777>Giving the answers to some closed room logic puzzlesAre you seriously suggesting that the nature of Beato is just an answer to some closed room logic puzzle?>For me Umineko has always been a story first and a mystery second.Me too. And I see using the author's authority to force certain interpretations as shitting on the story aspect just to make it a more "orthodox" mystery, with a confession at the end and all.

>>21500529Oh no that was a long time ago, i think it wasn't that big of a deal since i kinda expected it to happen satoshi being alive and no, you couldn't have prevented it, my dick required some twins in lewd outfits in a threesome
>>21500571I like this image so much:3
>>21500543Oh, well I'm glad I didn't do it, but still I'm sorry to hear about getting spoiled. It's all Mion's fault for having such a lewd body and lovely tits.
>>21500616Dammit, i can't even react with mion or shion beacuse if i look up any booru i might get accidently spoiled again like that. True and her sister ain't so bad herself, after all it's shion who is wearing that cute outfit in work !
>>21500627I'll just post more for you here then.

i wanna lick Ange sweaty and smelly anus right after she run from the sumadera crew, she's so chubby and don't shower daily i bet her ass smell bad, lewd!

Reminder that if it's wasn't for Rika, Satoko would be covered in shit in less than a week, she act so proud and edgy but in the end she's just a kid! what a loser!

>>21501094I wish i wasn't a filthy ESL. It's Iwaihime good? I saw a CG of someone drinking piss or sometime similar.
Reminder a strong tomboy like mion could overpower keichii easily and put him in a cage and keep him as her trap slave while dressing him up in cute outfits for the rest of his life
>>21501110It's not quite that fetish-heavy, but Ryukishi definitely let himself go way more extreme on the horror/gore/sexual innuendo than in anything he has ever written (I guess that dating deathmatch battle royale manga he was involved in came close in terms of innuendo). It has three fairly decent "mystery" character arcs for its heroines, but sadly the main character is totally flat (I imagine it's what the studio he wrote Iwaihime wanted). Still a wild ride and a decent vn, though no masterpiece by any means.>>21501117but that's wrong. Mion is the one who secretly wants to be dressed in cute outfits. The contrast between her tomboyish bravado and her fragile, emotional side is what makes her best girl. Shion is the opposite: an actually strong-minded girl who knows how to use the appearance of fragility and feminine charm to get what she wants, which makes her the worst higurashi.
>>21501178>Mion is the one who secretly wants to be dressed in cute outfitsI know that and doesn't change the fact that she COULD do those things.
>>21501204at that point you're just fantasizing about a vaguely mion-shaped personification of your fetishes.
>>21501215Yes i do
>>21501215But why wouldn't she do those things? She's shown to be a pervert that likes to see her crush crossdress.
>>21501240Exactly + i said it more as a copy joke to that anon talking about ange
>>21501240True, but Mion has zero interest in turning k1 into her sissy slave, which is where this replychain stated.The whole appeal of the club activities is the possibility of mutually making the other surrender and being made to surrender. I bet what Mion is primarily concerned with when she comes up with punishments for k1 isn't how cute he would look in a maid outfit (that's closer to Rena's thinking), but how he might get back at her later once she loses.
>>21501277I thought the appeal of club activities is to win no matter what and arise as the victor above all

I browse /jp/ exclusively so I can steal picture of my wife Erika!
I browse /jp/ with the hope that you guys will get better but that never happens, and yet I still come here.
>>21507520It's your fault for putting hope in this imageboard that died about 10 years ago.
>>21507456Because prior to the manga the fact that Meta world Battler is Tohya's former self that he lost at sea was ambiguous. A lot of people thought he was the piece Battler from Legend of the Golden Witch, ascended to the meta world. Personally, I think it gives Tohya more narrative weight knowing that the Battler we've been following is the same Battler he's been unable to reconcile with, making the final scene where his past the two Battler's meet all the more emotional.
>>21507184That only relieves the problem for 20 minutes.
>>21507669Then you do it again. >Is it painful? Does it feel good? Why don't you just give up and cuuuum?
>>21507678I hate that I like this.
>>21507741Your mind can't fight what your heart yearns for. Just give in to your desires like the animal that you are. Go on, tell everyone what it is you want to do with this youthful beauty.
Hello GOATS friends. What can I expect going into this? It looks visually appealing.
>>21507650This picture got me hard just now...I didn't really like the Tohya idea but this scene made me weak as fuck.
>>21508189To cry a lot, and start by pic related.
Does anyone have mega for higurashi episodes ?, i lost my link a long time ago and only downloaded first 2 episodes to check if it was worth it
>>21507342given the size of the cast I sure hope not
>>21508189>>21508483Disappointment, with one or two great ideas sparkled throughout.
>>21507650>was ambiguousperhaps if you're blind.
>>21508719Can you elaborate? I don't care about spoilers which just spoil some major facts.
>>21508674Knowing R07, there's probably a lot of still hidden characters too. I hope it's at least comparable to RGD in length.
Have you guys seen Umineko Online? It seems like a pretty cool project.
>>21509064What is this
>>21505942He even has the classic small bombs level retardation.
>>21508986I have a hunch that Ryukishi might be going full F:SN with this one. Given the nearly infinite number of potential combinations of who might fight who under which circumstances and what kind of relationship might develop out of this, etc., that kind of format lends itself even better to long-form Storytelling than Higu and Umi did, so I'm not too worried about it being too short. I'm more concerned about the political intrique aspect ending up underdeveloped, and arriving at a conclusion that doesn't resolve the problems the setting seems to pose (who is a pawn, who has agency on the global political stage) in any thematically satisfying fashion, but with a meme-tier shounen battle for the fate of the world.
>>21509133He already had the politics/intrigue aspect make thematic sense with the characters in RGD, so he knows how to pull that off. I'm also getting Evangelion and Metal Gear Solid vibes from Ciconia, and those stories had politics which integrated with the characters and made thematic sense too.>meme-tier shounen battle for the fate of the world.Judging by his previous works, if there's going to be a battle near the end, you can bet it's going to be about some deeply personal shit.
>>21509064It seems interesting indeed but it looks complicated to sure.I hope we can set up og sprites.
>>21508872Are you talking about Requiem or Fata? I haven't played Requiem, as Fata was a disappointment for me. It could be that Requiem is an excellent VN for all I know, though I wouldn't bet on it.Fata Morgana has some excellent ideas, almost always related to metatextual plays with the UI. By instance, the fourth story is a lie, and you can only discover it is a lie by using the textscroll history, which is heavily corrupted and contain the thoughts of both the MC and the witch. It is fascinating. Or a decision is time-dependent (as in, you must take the decision in one second), or it locks you into a bad end.Those are some very interesting ideas, especially the fourth story.Unfortunately, narratively speaking, Fata Morgana is subpar. Most reveals are painfully obvious, many characters are weak, it can be absurdly slow-paced, the prose isn't particularly good (but then it's a translation), and the historical setting (France, etc) is simply left unused. Its meta nature, when the VN doesn't use the interface in bizarre way, is very poor.
>>21508844And yet we have anons claiming that it was a retcon.
>>21507184>>21509064Erika, you're masturbating too much!
>>21510093Impossible, there's never too much
>>21510099How many times a day does Erika shlick?
>>21510099Dlanor shouldn't be drinking, she's just a KID!
>>21510136How many breads have you eaten in your life>>21510295It's only illegal if they catch you

Tried making a nude edit like editanonFour and a half hours of getting autistic over individual pixelsChristian-imageboard-unfriendly ver: https://imgur.com/a/gitTXfo
>>21510932VERY good for your first shot, and in a decent amount of time too. Keep up the good work. And don't worry if it doesn't look quite right at first. My early edits looked like this.
>>21510932And here's my latest 410 as reference. Feel free to reach out to me if you ever want some advice.
>>21510932this pleases me
>>21510932Very nice work anon, this looks nice enough to me !
Posting an old 410 fapfic I started years back to commemorate.https://pastebin.com/NBJcDLAzhttps://pastebin.com/aE7weuZj
>>21511000needs more loomis desu
>>21512037I'm saying your past self would have benefited from having a deeper understanding anatomy. there's a good amount of information that's not even implied by the clothed figure unless you know how to reconstruct it
>>21499928And thats a bad thing
I want to make a character based off Erika in FFXIV, what class do you think makes the most sense for her?
>>21512570Nice looking, got any more Rosa? Direct link if porn.
>>21512594the most OP one
>>21512594the most scummy underhanded class there is
>>21512594>not choosing Paladin for Erika
>>21512743Doesn't she just become a Fallen Paladin anyways? So something like that would make more sense.
>>21512594My Erika is a trickster, using the cold blue truth to freeze and crush her enemies
>>21512834Sounds like a rogue.
>>21512855More or less; she uses the underhanded abilities of a rogue but chooses a 2h weapon to make sure she crushes her enemies into a thousand pieces.
>>21512605Here's a nice one.
>>21512049Oh, yeah definitely.
>>21512570I want to satisfy Rosas cocklust
>>21512997the best color choices
>>21514297only tangentially related, but imo Maria struggling with isolation in her school life was the primary inspiration for Higanbana. might even be that half the shortstories were initially planned out as chapters of her diary for Umineko, as "ghoststories" that hide and at the same time try to make sense of darker truths without acknowledging them.
That makes six days of exclusively cumming to EVA.
>>21514546Congratulations anon. Here's something for you.
I don't have time to read Higurashi in 2 months.I NEED to read it before Ciconia.PLEASE SEND HELP. WHAT DO I DO ?Can I really read it in July ? I don't want to rush through the chapters...
>>21515407binge it in a weekend
>>21515407>I don't have time to read Higurashi in 2 months.How many words per minute can you read anon?
>>21515407Start reading it either way?
>>21514333>Maria struggling with isolation in her school life was the primary inspiration for HiganbanaThe original version of Higanbana (a light novel called Gakkou Youkai Kikou) is older than Umineko
