The feeling I get from the series is that Ryuukishi doesn't want to give us the answer, but he would be glad if the answer was forcefully taken from him. That's how I interpreted episode 4's ending...

I'd just like to note that Schrodinger himself referred to the box experiment as "ridiculous."

The purpose of the experiment was to show just how ridiculous it was.

Would Umineko improve as a whole if it had ended with Battler looking at his spinning top?

Oh it's awful writing alright. But it's technically not so much making up a condition as "picking your ridiculous interpretation" though.

I don't think he was talking about the attitude fans have towards it, considering how he makes Battler talk about how most novels don't focus on the motive. If it was a message directed at his...

But the Golden Age was filled with mysteries like that. I can't agree with it being rare when basically every single Miss Marple story relies on motive, and there were so many of them.

I disagree. In Umineko, we start off knowing nothing. Beatrice claims to be the one who did it, but at that point we don't even know who Beatrice really is. The how is also not given to us, unless we...

Out of curiosity, how do you guys plan on translating the Professor Layton segments? A few of them seem very hard to translate without changing the entire question.

I wouldn't say that at all. I think that it's harder to find a Christie novel where the murderer is a jerk than one where the murderer is sympathetic. The why isn't "tacked on" in stories at all.

There is no allowing or choossing in love. The only choice you have is whether to act on it or not, which Kanon didn't(which is a major plot point as well).

I just have to point out that Ryuukishi basically made that up. The Golden Age has more heart than any other genre, even romance. Sure you can find a few novels that don't present motive, but...
