I poorly translated the tweet. Completely new mystery.

"Yesterday, I heard from the personal that there were a lot of Umineko fans at the comiket booth... For seeing that much people cosplaying our characters even in the middle of the winter, I would like to thank you. The development for the next game from the "when they cry" series is scheduled to start in 2017. It is expected that this game will be completely different compared to "Higurashi" and "Umineko". I wish you a happy new year."

I'm hoping it somehow retains the meta aspect in some form. That's one thing I liked very much as apposed to Higurashi.

>everything goes pitchblack

How can "completely different" be interpreted?

Higurashi and Umineko had pretty much the same general idea of 8 arcs with the same story "resetting" each times, but besides that it's still totally different, will the new WTC at least keep this structure?

Going by how long it took R07 from releasing the last chapter of Higurashi to the first chapter of Umineko, we'll probably see the first chapter of this game being released sometime in 2018.

Also, how long on average was the wait for a chapter to be translated? I wasn't here when Umineko was being released.

The house adjacent to mine until very recently had bat nests in the attic, since the people living there have been leaving their attic window open for years.

Four have made it into my house, all during the summer. One turned up in my kitchen, one in the living room, and one in the ceiling of my basement. And everything is sealed except for a tiny ass chimney path which only opens by the heater all the way underground, and is always closed off except for during the winter anyway. Things could kill anyone in any room in the Ushiromiya mansion.

Oh really? How about a remote space colony of, say, 2000 people. Everyone has a job to do and then, mysteriously, someone is thrown out of an airlock. No one knows how but it happened. Then there's some conspiracy about old alien artifact and people start freaking out about Gods, similar to Alien. Blur the line between mystery, magic and sci-fi but IN SPAAAACE.
Tell me you wouldn't read that. And Space Detectives. Just that thought alone makes me giggle.

It is better to play the games.
But Higurashi anime was still ok.

And this new installment most likely won't be as good as the previous ones.

First four umineko episodes were awesome with fifth being the peak of the series.
Higurashi was ok over all.

But I think he will finally put and end to this series when he sees that the fan reaction is poor and he is hated.
>>
>>151615449
>But Higurashi anime was still ok.
No, it's not.
>>
>>151615410
The Higurashi anime is maybe 6/10. The Umineko anime is 3/10.

The visual novels are far better to read. You should start with Higurashi and then move on to Umineko. It's not like one is a sequel to the other, but there are elements and references in Umineko that are more enjoyable if you're familiar with Higurashi.
>>
>>151615449
>But Higurashi anime was still ok.
If you ever actually played the games you would never think this.

>>151615481
The Higurashi anime is decent in its horror but fails at everything else to the point where it's not worth watching.

I mean, really, some of the scary scenes are good even though it fucks up the overall answers. Like not showing Tomitake having fun with the gang during the festival, and making Mion and Rena look insane.
The music is also god tier, something you don't see anyone mention anymore because the VN music is godlike as well.

>>151615867
You misunderstand, for every person saying the anime is ok, someone watches it instead of reading the VN, then wonders if he should read the VN afterwards if he knows the twist.
It's just the logical solution. Shit on the anime and tell everyone to stay away from it even though it's decent only because it captures the paranoia horror aspect in the VN.

Still this is not a right way to go about it.
We should recommend people to play games first but also say that anime is ok because that is how things are in reality.

You guys are agressive fags. Shitting on it won't change fact that most people will go for it first because it is easy to go through. And it does still do an ok job by itself.

m8, not like everyone would be willing to spend many hours to read VNs, it needs effort. If we say them to ignore anime no matter what they might just drop the series altogether which would be not good in my opinion.

No, you're an autistic sycopant who probably made an eight hour video on how Rosa is the culprit. Umineko's ending was fucking trash, and despite what the one or two losers who defend it say it didn't "go above" people's heads.

It's just structurally impotent. The culprit is an unlikable spaz, the themes are nonsensical, and the complete 180 pivot in focus back to the game pieces in the end after spending four episodes pissing about with different layers of meta feels about as genuine as Kinzo the Friendly Grandpa

>>151618072
The thing is that I rarely see very valid criticism of Umineko, meaning it always boils up to ridiculously subjective opinions ("culprit is unlikable") or just calling story dumb with no further explanations. In a way the sudden change of story focus is very similar in Higurashi, and Higurashi rarely gets trashed as thematically inconsistent even as you could similarly see it transform from horror-drama into power of friendship.

In short I totally understand why many people do not like it and the focus shift it makes, but if you have the time then please explain further why it's structurally impotent in a way that doesn't boil up to "I didn't like it". Considering the first half of your post is pretty much just an angry rant you probably have something to specify.

Sorry faggot, not happening. But for the sake of any suckers your "people just didn't GET IT" act cons, the problem is that Umineko makes a big deal about rules and trust, but betrays that trust and cheats several times.

The red text counting personas as people, but not witch personas as people, is inexcusable. The endless references to "fair play" mystery but having a giant fucking bomb at the center of the island is fucking dumb. The deliberate and constant switch between "You don't need to forgive the culprit, just understand her!" and then "ISN'T BEATRICE(Yasu) GREAT SHE'S SUCH A HERO YAAAAAAAY" is irritating, and finally, the meta self insert writer crap. Fuck Featherine, fuck "Touya", fuck the entire second half of Umineko. It's trash.

Why are you this angry on an imageboard about pseudo-intellectual detective novel?

I asked you to explain why the series was thematically incompetent and most your nitpicking is just nitpicking.
>but not witch personas as people, is inexcusable
But witches aren't people. Obviously you are going to say next "but imaginative persons aren't persons either" but considering it was never even defined what counts as a person that's hardly a trait that would mess even the internal logic.
>The endless references to "fair play" mystery but having a giant fucking bomb at the center of the island is fucking dumb.
It was foreshadowed since episode 1 so it's hardly "dumb", just something you didn't like.
>"ISN'T BEATRICE(Yasu) GREAT SHE'S SUCH A HERO YAAAAAAAY"
I don't think this ever happened. The novel portrayed Yasu pretty honestly as a shitty person, it's just that most of ep 7 is told from his perspective which is reflected in the narrative. As a counterweight he is portrayed to do pretty malicious pranks to for example Jessica, not to mention the fact he pretty much planned a mass murder. I don't understand how you got the message he was a hero when he was portrayed as malicious and borderline insane.

Your points are pretty stupid and you outright refused to answer to what I asked. I think it's time to step off of your high horse, at least if you refuse to actually discuss the topic in a way that doesn't amount to petty insults.

No one hates Ange. If they do, it's simply because they didn't reread Umineko.
When you start ep 4, you don't care about Ange. It's only when you get to ep 6 that you start to care. And when you reread ep 4, you see her beginnings and growth. Her bullying at school in ep 4 is top tier.

Because sadly it somehow still defines vampires in popular culture. I guess it's because of the popularity.

Shiki is kind of hit or miss series, but I'd chalk it more to the ridiculous character designs and character focus.

At least the vampire folklore is really interesting if you ever get around to it.

>>151623391
Depends on your theory but the Golden Truth is a human truth that is accepted by the collective community. It can be true or false, but it becomes truth if everyone accepts it as such.
For example, there is no red truth on Kinzo's dead body or if he's dead, but because everyone notices that the body has a 6th toe, it becomes a gold truth that the body belongs to Kinzo.
Essentially, the red truth is the absolute truth, while the gold truth is an approximation of the truth by collective consensus. It does not have to be true, simply agreed upon to be the truth. For example, it is used a second time in ep 6, when Chick Beatrice and Beatrice create magic by ''appearing'' a candy from a cup. Thus, with the gold truth, it is agreed between those two that is is magic. As Lambda says, the gold truth can sometimes be stronger than the red truth but also weaker, it depends on your perspective, how it is used and who believes it.
The philosopher Peirce is rather interesting in that regard as it is his pragmatism that gold truth. Popper as well but he's a worth shit.

For example, to some, Rosatrice is a Gold Truth, even if it is not a red truth.
That is the difference.

I liked the overall theme. That when a democracy becomes too irrational, the only thing that can bring order is a dictatorship. I think there's even a mention of this in Rose Guns Days. It's also something pointed out in LoGH.
>>
>>151628545
This.

Yasu wrote some murder mystery stories because she was bored and tossed them in the ocean.

Then all the Ushiromiya's got together and had a happy time at the family reunion. Unfortunately the bomb under the mansion went off because it was old and malfunctioned and everyone but Eva died (she was playing hide and seek) and Battler (who ended up getting knocked into the ocean).

It was just a stupid accident but afterwards the media insisted there was foul play and got people to imagine all the terrible things that might have happened but never did.

The truth behind Umineko's mysteries is that there were never any mysteries in the first place.

Ryukishi is right. A Democracy is actually pretty hard and if people take it for granted eventually it will end up as a corrupt, powerless system.

Benjamin Franklin said the same thing in his final speech at the Constitutional Convention.

>"... I agree to this Constitution, with all its faults—if they are such; because I think a general Government necessary for us, and there is no form of government but what may be a blessing to the people, if well administered; and I believe, farther, that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other."
>>
>>151628685
Right, I thought explaining bullying as related to social hierarchy was pretty clever.
But what I really loved about those stories was how wacky it was. The word "bullying" must have been said like 500 times. Yukari and Sumire are fun reps for their philosophies.
>>
>>151629006
>The American system is not a democracy. It is a constitutional republic. A democracy is a system of unlimited majority rule; the classic example is ancient Athens. And the symbol of it is the fate of Socrates, who was put to death legally, because the majority didn’t like what he was saying, although he had initiated no force and had violated no one’s rights.

>Democracy, in short, is a form of collectivism, which denies individual rights: the majority can do whatever it wants with no restrictions. In principle, the democratic government is all-powerful. Democracy is a totalitarian manifestation; it is not a form of freedom . . . .

>The American system is a constitutionally limited republic, restricted to the protection of individual rights. In such a system, majority rule is applicable only to lesser details, such as the selection of certain personnel. But the majority has no say over the basic principles governing the government. It has no power to ask for or gain the infringement of individual rights.

The latest Mangagamer translations are an improvement. Witch Hunt is assisting Mangagamer with Umineko's retranslation, making the dialogue sound more natural and less literal.
>>
>>151630500
Read it with the old art but with the voices.
See >>151615373 to get your downloads.

>>151630982
The voice give atmosphere. One of the main problems of Higurashi is that you're unable to guess who is saying which line. It makes it confusing as you can't use'' ''XXXX'' said Rena''
This stops being an issue when Ryukishi gets a good handle in ep 5 and onwards.
Another problem of Higurashi that people have complained is that the gang mostly have the same tone of voice. They feel like kids but lack their own personality through their speech. The voices fixes that. Ryukishi also fixed that in Umineko as you can tell that each parent and cousin has a different speech pattern, so Ryukishi was clearly taking notes of the criticism.

I think Maria on the right is the best. Kinda captures the fatness of Original Maria without losing cuteness.

In defense of just their faces. Eva and Natsuhi at least look closer to their 40+ years.

what is the difference between higurashi hou on steam than the old ones? and why does it have only 4 chapters?

It's to milk as much money as possible, same for umineko steam not having the answer arcs out yet.

Wolves, babies/children, owls, banshees, foxes, bats, foxes, crows, eagles, hyenas, coyotes, monkeys, peacocks, vultures...

My favorite would be the screaming goats though.

The manga is easy to get in as well except it's an infinitely better adaptation. Anyone suggesting beginning with the Anime is fucking retarded. No, there is nothing ok about it.

I always laugh when i read that because people were defending the old one pretty vigorously when that was all that was available.

You just cannot win this crowd.

Some of the sprites are okayish, but Battler looks beyond retarded and considering he has probably the most screen-time I think it's kind of a major fuck-up. Just downloaded the full ps3 patch with moving mouths etc, I guess I'll just replay with it some day.

Actually, Erika and the Eiserne Jungfrau all look pretty decent, such that it boggles my mind how the artist did the others.

You're right. Erika's neck looks a little thin to me, but other than that the four of them look decent in the Steam sprites. Go figure.

Doesn't that mean Kinzo is the culprit, though?
He was the idiot who set up that bomb in the first place, wasn't it?
He indirectly killed all his family.
