Almost sounds like they had to start making the announcement in April to hit the anniversary, even though their real announcement, whatever it is, isn't ready. The ten events could be a way to buy...

Congrats on the release, Spider Lily! ;)
Awesome that we get to see the whole Ryuukishi series up to this point translated into English. Nice work.

@haguruma: Beatrice may have began that way, but once the witch pranks started, I don't think Yasu stayed the same. Yasu seems extremely proud of those with pranks, enough that she eventually makes...

Well, we see Beatrice looking really happy on 3 occasions.

1. When she first tries to tempt Shannon and Kanon into having love on their own.
2. Shortly after Kanon realizes how serious Jessica...

I mostly agree, but is Yasu really such a helpless figure? I mean, assuming she is the criminal, she was willing to take huge risks to accomplish something. What she did meant the end of her...

So in other words, Yasu's main goal was simply "to go out with someone", not to find a future marriage partner. Not that she wasn't interested in having a deeper relationship, but she wasn't...

If Shkanontrice is true, then this part of EP2 is our best hint to her character, and probably meta-Beatrce's as well. Since we don't yet have absolute proof that she committed the crimes, this...

That makes sense, but did Yasu really set out to make the love trial happen before she started dating George? If indecision about whom she loves is what eventually drives her to become an illogical,...

On the face of it, this opening is a story of Beatrice tempting Shannon and Kanon with the promise of love, and then laughing at them when that love...

Sorry, I'm a bit out of touch on Rosatrice theories. Does she have the willing support of the servants? If not, a few things don't make sense to me in EP1, like how she got out of the shed and how...

I'm not saying they are the same person. Meta-Beatrice claims that she personally was responsible for all the murders before EP3. Her whole explanation for the gameboard depends on that claim, since...

I won't disagree with you there. I argued for that point a lot between the EP6 and EP7 releases. But I'm trying to get into specifics.

The Shkanon theory explains several things, but since it...
