Exactly. It's the exact opposite of how Bern makes him out to be much more competent in Episode 5's gameboard. Both interpretations of Battler are valid.

Just finished the VN for the first time. I can't believe I didn't figure out the identity of the culprit, but I'm also simultaneously stunned with how well hidden it was. The scene with Shannon and Will in Ch. 7 really gave it away, as well as the Love Duel in Ch. 6.
>>
>>21873219
>Just finished the vn
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tu14bVETMLw
Yeah. The story is technically solvable by the end of Episode 4, but most don't get it until later on. I personally didn't figure it out until the "17 people" truth at the end of Episode 6.
>>
Furniture exchange program.
>>
>>21873232
I think the only way I would have been able to figure it out is the "disappearing Kanon" aspect of the story, which means I still wouldn't have figured it out until Ep. 8 with Bern's riddle, where she says, "If Shannon dies, Kanon also dies." At best, optimistically, I might have been able to get it during the creepy Shannon part in Ch. 7, but I just took Will's word for it that, "He isn't allowed to do that (yet)," and forgot about the whole exchange. I pathetically had to consult the wiki after I was stumped with the Sayo Yasuda confession and how it related to Shannon. I guess I'm just much more of a fantasy guy, and I take what's stated in the writing to be true, even if the book is constantly telling me that the magic scenes are just embellishment. All I read was, "Sayo becomes a witch," and I figured she literally became a witch and kept reading like a dumbass.

I also didn't figure out Ch. 2 Higurashi until I read Ch. 5, so I think I can say I'm just fucking bad at mysteries and riddles.

>>
>>21873273
I was kind of similar in that I got caught up in the fantasy stuff too much and also didn't want to suspect any of the characters since I liked them all too much. But after episode 6 it was pretty obvious that SOMETHING was up with Shannon and Kanon, at the time I thought that Kanon wasn't real and was just Shannon's imagination or something. I didn't think of the possibility of them just literally being the same person until episode 7 made it obvious

Will maybe, but Dlanor made for a very enjoyable noble rival, and her concept means a lot to the game board, being a personification of the decalogue. Also, she’s cute.
>>
>>21873379
My problem was how was anyone supposed to possibly comprehend the logic error in Ep. 6 unless they KNEW about Shannon and Kanon perfectly. The logic only works if you have the story figured out in its entirety, and even then, the "loophole" for escaping the guest house is ridiculous unless you take it to mean, "Shannon and Kanon were never locked up because it's impossible to lock up both," when it's more obvious that "only one of them is locked up." Though, I do assent they're the only ones available to switch with.
>>
>>21873398
She is cute, and I like the concept of the decalogue, but she just feels "out of place," similar to how Will feels like some kind of self-insert OC from Deviantart. The only time I could believe her character was in the battle in Kinzo's study.
>>
>>21873417
I also feel like her moments with Erika in Episode 6 were very nice and helped make Erika more fleshed out.

So I'm rereading through Tsumihoroboshi and I can't help but notice that Satoko's HOHOHOs are the same size as Rena's Hauuu~s. The biggest mystery is why Satoko's breast size changes in almost every official version.
>>
>>21873427
I love Erika, but I don't care for her backstory. I love Ryukishi's writing, but he has the highest peaks and the deepest lows, and his attempt to make her into a nuanced character was a generic fucking pit, compared to his explanation for Maria's "uu-uu," which was Mt. Everest level quality. The rationality also pales compared to the motivation for Bernkastel and Sayo, when she's a sufficiently interesting villain just in being "an evil detective." It's not like I wouldn't believe in an intellectual rapist, half the premise of the series is that the world is full of them.
>>
>>21873447
It’s really very simple. Satoko is supposed to have boobs, and some artists just don’t want to put any on someone her age.

>>21873478

>>
>>21873409
That was the whole point of the logic error, to spell it out to the reader in case they hadn't figured it out. If you read the part with Erika trying to solve it again there are plenty of hints trying to get you thinking along the right track. The logic error narrows down the amount of possible solutions drastically so if you think about it enough you should be able to get the right idea, especially with the number of people truth at the end. That said I'm still dumb and wasn't thinking about it entirely properly

Also I don't get what you mean by people being locked up. Wasn't it just that we know nobody left the room that "everyone else" was in but people could leave from the room that Shannon and a few other people were in?

I didn't understand what it meant by having Kanon die and then go to the room, and then I still didn't know how he escaped from it. To me it looked like Battler was switching with a ghost, though if I knew about Kanon and Shannon, I think I could have used logic to come up with the same argument for how "Kanon no longer exists in the room."

I didn't understand how Kanon or Shannon could escape from the room unless they were never locked up. Because, after all, Shannon/Kanon does have to LITERALLY switch with Battler, right? Sure the game doesn't "go on," but someone has to be physically able to switch, you can't say, "Kanon switched with Battler, while Shannon stayed at the guest house." There has to be an explanation for how Sayo can escape the guest house even if the game master wants to pretend that Kanon and Shannon are in different places at the same time.

Ah, I think I get what you mean. Shannon's room isn't sealed, but Kanon's room is. So for the purposes of the game, Battler says "Kanon leaves his room and switches with Battler then escapes the closed room with magic," but what's really happening is that Shannon leaves the guest house through the window, and "becomes Kanon," who couldn't be locked up because there can only be one at a time, switches with Battler, and then turns back into Shannon to "kill Kanon" so he doesn't exist in the room anymore. Still, that's a fucking hard trick to figure out without knowing that "Kanon is being used as an image," and doesn't have to escape his own room. Did anyone online figure out the mystery of Umineko before the Answer arcs were released?
>>
>>21873526
I think I was also tricked because I was thinking about Kanon's "death" too literally, when him perishing in the closed room was meant to signify that he "never existed in that room," right?

>>21873618
Trapping her suspect's erection between her breasts, the soft flesh creating a perfect "closed room" for the interrogation. Then using her trusty roll of duct tape to bind her breasts together for a perfect seal that leaves her hands free. From there the interrogation would begin, with Erika swaying her shoulders side to side as she asks the questions, using her hands to tickle the balls from below and the head from above.
>>
>>21873645
I always thought that Keiichi's ability to tell that Shion wasn't Mion in that scene is because he refused to accept the "truth" that either Mion or Shion was capable of murder. After all, it doesn't matter which is which, it's just that a demon has possessed Shion and has overwritten her existence. Kind of reminds me of how Maria doesn't think Rosa and the Bad Witch are the same person, or that the servants and Beatrice are the same.

Then maybe as a handicap he'd have his hands bound as well, leaving him unable to move as they both drag their soft, heavy chests across his figure. Resting them on his head, pushing them into his face, sandwiching his upper arms from either side, plopping them down in his lap, etc.

>>21873782
Yeah. Even if they're bodies are perfectly identical, the differences in their techniques would be what gives them away. When it's finally time for him to make his declaration, both Mion and Shion would kneel before him and place their busts on his lap, each pair resting heavily on one of his thighs. Together, they'd reach out and undo his pants, pulling out the object with which he'd make his decision known. As the whole room goes quiet, he'd maneuver his hips until his manhood slips into the cleavage of the one he picks. Then the one who remains would rise to her feet and circle behind him to untie the blindfold, letting him see who he chose.
As his eyes adjusted to the light, he'd make out the figure of Mion crouched before him, his dick nestled snuggly between her boobs.

Pretty good, although it takes a while to really hit it's stride.

The "death" of Kanon and/or Shannon just refers to their personalities. So Yasu decides to "kill" whoever loses the love duel, because the love duel represents Yasu deciding which personality she's going to live on with. That's how Yasu can shoot Nanjo at the end of Episode 3 even with Shannon and Kanon confirmed dead in the red. That's what the Shannon revival scene represents, Yasu "killed" the personality Shannon but decided to play the role of Shannon just a bit more to talk with George.

Like I said it's kind of a mean trick but if you reread the story you'll be shocked at just how much forshadowing there is. Both stuff on the game board that emphasises Shannon and Kanon and forshadows a lot there, and stuff outside of the game board that implies that stuff like personality swapping is possible. In fact I'm pretty sure in EP4 there's a scene where Battler straight up says "say it in red, nobody in this story goes by multiple different names" and Kinzo says "I can't!". And in EP3 Battler brings up the idea that even though "Jessica" didn't kill Nanjo maybe she has another personality, and instead of saying "no that's dumb personalities don't count" Eva simply says "Jessica's body is not able to commit murder regardless of personality".

It's a fact, though. If Shannon LITERALLY dies, that means the body that is Sayo, Shannon, and Kanon has perished, which will result in all three of them perishing.

>>
>>21876903
Shirou's a great character actually, at least in UBW and HF because it's grue that he is anoying in the Fate route.
He makes you think he's a generic shonen MC at first but after his development and the EMIYA twist you realize he's more like a "deconstruction" (though I dont like the term) of what a generic shonen protag is, while being a genuinely interesting character.

If SHANNON literally dies, the narrative can still make it so Kanon ran off somewhere and can't be found by the survivors. In that case, Kanon would technically still be alive, since his existence is a mere role that can persist even after the actor dies.
>>
>>21876553
>If Shannon LITERALLY dies, that means the body that is Sayo, Shannon, and Kanon has perished, which will result in all three of them perishing.
Not if they create the illusion of Shannon being kidnapped or hidden somewhere nobody can find. In that case, Shannon is technically not dead even if the body is.
>>
>>21877355
Why did they need to stop being doujin? And is Fate/Stay Night good, or is it a step down?

Isn't it the one with the "defenseless anus" line? That's pretty based.

Too much effort for too little payoff. Beato is at least an engaging antagonist from the start because she's different and also isn't the protagonist. If the story wasn't told from his perspective, then it'd be possible to read because I could ignore him when he isn't on screen. He reminds me a lot of Rand Al'thor from The Wheel of Time, when I really think about it, but without the things that make him interesting.

Their first VN Tsukihime is a cult classic that a lot of people love, and we were promised a remake ages ago that they keep assuring us is in development but they never have anything to show for it. Fate/Stay Night was great, so was the fandisk Hollow Ataraxia and some of the spinoff stuff was fun too but a lot of the old TM fans are just sick of Fate by now. The problem is Fate garnered a new audience that isn't interested in anything other than Fate, so the company keeps shitting out new Fate stuff even though this series has no business being stretched this far.

Basically imagine if the Umineko anime was less shit and blew up in popularity, and then imagine if Ryukishi decided to just stretch Umineko as far as possible instead of making anything new. Imagine if he promised some new Higurashi thing that people were excited for but instead he keeps making new Umineko stuff. And imagine if this new Umineko stuff was garbage that's ends up feeling like an insult to the original work, taking the characters and ruining them for the sake of pandering to waifufags. Stretching the series way further than it was ever designed to go, just because there's a new audience who demands more Umineko waifus at the expense of the series's integrity. That's basically what TM fans have had to put up with.

But the person who was actually Kanon would be dead if Sayo dies. That's why Kanon disappears and doesn't return (except by lying about him appearing) in the second story when Shannon commits suicide.

Even if they say, "Shannon has disappeared," the fact is that Shannon is actually dead. Just like how when Shannon isn't "playing dead" in Bern's game, but is actually murdered by Kyrie/Rudolf, it automatically results in Kanon dying. If Sayo isn't around to portray the role, they can lie and say the person is alive, but they're no more alive than Kinzo.

The build-up in the first half makes it even more jarring. The story hypes up his arrival to Hinamizawa as if he were the second coming of Christ, with Oryou, Mion, and Rika making hamfisted speeches about a new wind fixing the village.

Those scenes might have made sense in they were in Minagoroshi-hen, where Keiichi did actually help unite the village. But he does fuck-all in the final arc.

My main complaint is that it Keiichi and Rena basically don't do anything during the arc and also that Rika didn't remember the events of Minagoroshi.

I would also like the whole village uniting vs Takano like in Minagoroshi but that might a bit too difficult to pull off.
>>
>>21880781
>My main complaint is that it Keiichi and Rena basically don't do anything during the arc
That's definitely a major problem. It kind of undermines the idea the story keeps pushing about "all the pieces needing to be in place" when the reality is that Rika and the village could have easily been saved without the two of them.

Really, it felt more like Kasai, Akasaka, and Satoko were the ones doing all the heavy lifting.

When has anyone ever trashed Higurashi Kai? Tsumihoroboshi is in my opinion by far the best WTC arc. Meakashi is pretty good too.

And Matsuribayashi is a fun enough ending even if you can argue it feels out of place, I appreciated a fun happy ending after all the tragedy.

Meakashi-hen and Tsumihoroboshi-hen are perfectly fine. It's the final two arcs that are where the series goes downhill. The government conspiracy and the increased prominence of the supernatural stuff detracts from the low-key grounded nature of the previous entries.

Plus the characters feel a lot more shallow with their issues being so easily resolved by convenient dreams. Compared to how he was in Onikakushi-hen and Tatarigoroshi-hen, Keiichi of the final arcs comes as a really generic anime protagonist.
>>

This is the worst complaint about Higurashi. It was never grounded. Especially not by the time of Tsumihoroboshi, the fuck? K1 magically gets visions of an alternate universe for basically no reason? You are either delusional or a speedreader.

That scene did open Pandora's Box. But at least it utilized it for a memorably heartbreaking scene.

The discussions about the other worlds becomes a fucking drag from Minagoroshi-hen onwards. There is nothing quite as dull as having an apathetic layabout monologue for hours on end about dice rolls and fate and what have you.

And while it went a tad wild at the end, the craziest Tsumihoroboshi-hen ever got was having two teenagers fight on top of a rooftop. It didn't turn everyone and their mom into some kind of former Spec Ops agent or martial arts master.
>>
>>21885674
>apathetic layabout
What does that have to do with anything? Don't tell me you're the kind of guy who thinks Lolita is bad because Humbert is a dickhead.

I'm not going to lay out an autistic dissertation on Higurashi here, but I'll repeat: if the "dice rolls" and crazy action sequences seemed wildly out of place of to you, then you probably weren't paying attention to the earlier parts of the story and are very arbitrarily choosing to no longer suspend disbelief where 95% of the preceding story would violate whatever standard you've decided on. It's not like Rena breaking dudes ankles in the blink of an eye didn't happen in Watanagashi, you just chose to ignore it.

The first route suffers from being the infodump route and having the least development for Shirou, making it merely decent compared to the other two. But if you do manage to make it there I really hope you enjoy it.

I feel like the VN medium is very conducive to this whole "meta/twisty/lots of levels of reality" style.

Not that guy, but... I fucking love that book and still think it was a mistake to make the protagonist a sociopath. A different kind of story with a genuinely sympathetic protagonist could've been just as good. Not many authors write about this subject, so it's unfortunate that he chose to make the pedo a despicable dickhead, fueling the stereotype.

Which Keiichi? The one from earlier in the series or the persona he puts on later? I found him more interesting back when the series didn't pretend he was anything but a neurotic insecure loser.

Eh Keiichi is great for what he is and possibly the best 07th expansion male protagonsit but Rika is definitely better, the depiction of her depression is on point and straight up carried Minagoroshi, more interesting personalities, more compelling backstory and all around the most developed by the end of Saikoroshi.

>The game's story begins with four girls who are close friends locked inside a strange room. They have no idea how they got there. The girls all have iron rings locked around their necks. The rings are connected to chairs, which look like torture devices, in the four corners of the room. A large cage appears from the ceiling, and a boy in a white hospital gown is locked inside. The girls know they need to escape the room, and a mysterious voice suddenly speaks to them.

IIRC, Claudia was technically a waitress trying to save up money to open her own restaurant. Rose was her childhood friend, so I always assumed she SOMEHOW convinced Richard to pay her extra money so she could make a decent living without fucking customers after work.

Rose is a virgin at the start of the story, I think.

Meryl and Stella have taken hundreds of dicks up their asses. They became the most successful prostitutes back in the day and got selected as the leaders of their respective groups when they decided to form an alliance and choose Rose as the madam. So they kinda went back to sucking dick but now in a safer environment.

They're not separable. In my view the biggest "redemption" for Keiichi isn't necessarily Tsumihoroboshi, but in early Minagoroshi where he hypes up Rika and acts really considerate even without all his memories. That scene where he notices Rika is bored during the game store setup is very "real" & humanizing, and super underrated.

Is it true that Meryl is an alternate universe version of one of Miyoko's aunts who died in WW2?

Is it true that Nina is an alternate universe version of a random 50-something housewife from Hinamizawa that ignores Satoko when she goes shopping and eventually gets gassed?

I wonder where everyone else ended up in the regular Higurashi/Umineko timelines. Most of them (except maybe Yuuji) were born before the disaster that changed the course of the war, so they must exist somewhere as completely different people.

>Okonogi gets away with a slap on the wrist after Higurashi
>His actions allowed Nomura (who he was in direct contact with)'s faction in Tokyo to gain more power

>Okonogi shows up in Ciconia. It's literally fucking him, not an expy. Takano Miyo is there too. Literally Takano Miyo from Higurashi
What does this all mean?

My theory is that Ciconia will deal in some way with the 5th dimension/metaverse where Hanyuu's clan originally came from and where the Umineko meta takes place.

Okonogi was like 50 in Umineko and he became rich as fuck thanks to the Ushiromiya assets, so he was able to survive far into the future thanks to super expensive artificial organs and robotic implants that only the super rich could afford in 2030. His lifespan was prolonged and he lived long enough for scientists to develop a cure for aging (aging is already considered a potentially curable disease IRL). He was able to afford that miraculous cure too and is still alive far into the future, with parts of his body artificially reconstructed like an android.

Somehow, he gets involved in illuminati shit thanks to his vast wealth that he made sure to keep increasing over the decades. And he ends up taking part in a government project based on future discoveries about quantum physics and the existence of alternate realities that can be visualized from a higher dimension.

The futuristic technology in Ciconia has already been shown in the trailers, but I bet there are all sorts of crazy futuristic machines capable of tapping into the 5th dimension where the witches live. THIS is how Lambda and Bern, as metaphysical beings (that only called themselves witches in Umineko to fit in Beatrice's world), get involved in the story.

Maybe everything that happened with the Okonogi in Higurashi and the Okonogi in Umineko was part of the third Okonogi's plan. The Ciconia Okonogi from the future, who tapped into the multiverse and caused all of that to happen using his alternate universe incarnations. And his knowledge from the Higurashi universe allowed him to recreate a virtual projection of Takano that acts exactly like the original person. Or maybe it's an android based on her appearance.

Okonogi's plans are never made totally clear in Higurashi or Umineko. In both stories, Okonogi seemed to be in for the money and had some great plan in mind. Maybe his upbringing was better in Umineko and that's why he's less of a bastard. Or MAYBE he's being controlled by his alternate universe version from the future using some weird technology that lets people project their minds into their other selves from across the multiverse.

Seriously. I refuse to believe Okonogi didn't have bigger plans in both universes. I also refuse to believe he and Takano are just expies in Ciconia. They are the same fucking people.

Maybe Ciconia Okonogi is not Umineko Okonogi with an extended lifespan, and os simply a different Okonogi who needed the events of Umineko and Higurashi to happen to achieve some goal in his own world.

Also, maybe the non-WTC series are also related in some small way. The earthquake that created the RGD world came out of nowhere. Was it just a random event that happened in a random fragment? Was it the work of witches? Was it the work of Okonogi or some other government big shot from Ciconia?

Okonogi shows up in RGD under a completely different name too. Suspicious. He seems to be a perfectly normal military dude with his own history, just like the other Okonogis had their own lives, but he's still a potential "entry point" for the Ciconia Okonogi. Maybe they needed to create this bizarre, westernized version of Japan in an alternate universe to obtain some information about enemy countries that couldn't be obtained in the regular timelines.

There are already metaphysical beings that can do exactly that (Hanyuu's race), can go in and out of fragments/universes, can adopt human forms in the third dimension, can breed with humans, can even give a human descendant the power to possess their alternate selves (what Hanyuu did to Rika), and their mere presence can trigger weird dejavus from parallel worlds on the people around them, including people who do NOT even have "demon" blood and don't descend from their clan.

It woudn't be strange for science to discover a way to recreate these powers through technology and navigate that higher dimension by introducing their minds into some strange quantum machine. Mere humans can use technology to do things that should only be possible for inhabitants of the 5th dimension.
>>
>>21889663
This would be fucking insane, making Ciconia a true sequel to the other WTC stories without having to mess with their universes in any way but taking knowledge/butterfly-effects from them in order to advance its own plot.

The meta world was a proper multiverse in Higurashi, but the meta in Umineko was more like a higher dimension where human thoughts and concepts exist and adopt physical forms. Like, the Ushiromiyas are dead for sure in millions of different fragments, but their meta selves are a "concept", an "idea" of them created by the collective consciousness of the public thanks to the Rokkenjima Mystery sparked by those message bottles. So the meta versions of the characters are not REALLY them, or their souls, or anything like that. They are more like "clones" of them in a higher dimension, the world of ideas and concepts.

Which would mean that this 5th dimension where infinite alternate universes exist as "fragments" is also a world of ideas whose inhabitants are unconsciously created and destroyed by the minds of humans. In this metaphysical dimension of the mind where ideas and concepts are given form, billions of fragments float around and they cointain the very universes where those concepts are generated by human minds.

This also explains Featherine's library. Every story ever published, hell, every story ever imagined, can manifest in this dimension and the people portrayed in those stories can exist for real here. Featherine herself is a persona imagined by Ikuko, but she genuinely exists in this higher dimension. Same with Dlanor, Willard, the court of Heaven and all that crazy shit. They represent concepts as imagined by Yasu and Maria. Other versions of the same concepts might exist somewhere out there.

The fragments floating around in this world of concepts are REAL universes, like the ones in Higurashi, so there's really no contradiction between both series and their meta worlds.
>>
>>21889839
This also explains how Lambda existed before Higurashi but has so many personal connections to Takano. She's a concept that manifested into this higher dimension, along with her entire life history (similar to how Bastian created an old as fuck forest with The Neverending Story book just by wishing it into existence, including its past history and everything). Lambda was created as a concept when a middle schooler Miyoko swore to work hard to help her grandfather and not let any stroke of bad luck get in the way of her certainty and her goals. That's why she looks like a slightly older Miyoko. As soon as she manifested as a concept in the 5th dimension, her past was created alongside her and it was absolutely "real" in that world, because it's a world of concepts given physical shape.

Also, Hanyuu's clan didn't necessarily have to be "aliens". Her explanation in Matsuribayashi makes it obvious that we are supposed to interpret those old demons as "aliens", but aliens that come from a higher dimension and can create third dimensional bodies for themselves at will aren't your usual concept of an "alien".

They could easily be onis or some other mythical race from the Japanese folklore. They manifested in the conceptual 5th dimension, along with their entire world, powers and culture as imagined by the old Japanese tribes. And at some point a group of them entered the real world through a fragment, were unable to escape their physical bodies and had to fight with the villagers who saw them as monsters from the Japanese folklore. That's when Hanyuu fell in love with a human and gave birth to Ouka and the Furude family, which explains why Rika has the ability to produce miracles (Matsuribayashi ending) and can be given some of Hanyuu's powers to access the sea of fragments in the 5th dimension.

It also explains why Rika is the reincarnation of Hanyuu and the only one that can see her. Who came up with the story about the 8th daughter in a row being the reincarnation of Oyashiro-sama? Some old fucking dude far into the past. But since Hanyuu was a conceptual being and her entire race of oni still existed as a concept in their original dimension, the concept of the "reincarnation" and the exact details of the prophecy were applied to Hanyuu and became real.

It's just like how the youkai in Higanbana have powers, rules and personalities based on random stories that children made up. They exist as they are because they were imagined in a certain way.

It's one of these two things:

-Okonogi is always the same guy (except in RGD which is not a WTC) and "X arc of Higurashi" (doesn't matter which), "Ange's real world" and the "Ciconia world" are ALL the SAME fragment. Okonogi was part of a secret military unit, the public didn't know about his past, so he could've easily created Okonogi Foods and gotten along with Hideyoshi after he lost his job / got too old to be the leader of the Yamainu. And the android shit you described could explain his survival until Ciconia.

-All Okonogis are separate guys in different universes and the guy is pulling a Rika using some fancy technology from the future to obtain useful information that can't be obtained in the Ciconia world anymore.
