Except the manga does pretty clearly show the contents of the BoOT. Considering similar images are in the files for episode 8 (but unused), I think that Ryukishi originally planned to reveal the...

You've seen the manga depiction of the Book of One Truth, right (I'm having trouble finding the link right now)? That pretty explicitly states that something very like the episode 7 Tea Party is...

Yasu as portrayed in the VNs was an interesting character, but I don't think she was explored far enough to explain why she planned a murder spree (or did whatever else she was supposed to do). ...

To be honest I always just assumed the mansion had a tonne of extra rooms, just from the sprites. It's possible that Kinzo kept a bunch spare for visiting businessmen/companies.

I don't think an affair would've made sense given how Natsuhi's character ended up developing. She tried to cope by fully devoting herself to the honour of the Ushiromiya family, and an affair would...

Yeah I think there are so many basic points that are unclear that it's very hard to find a common framework in which to discuss the deeper meaning of the series. I do think that Ryukishi fully...

I think it's implied that Kyrie stabbed the people in the guesthouse (which presumably would have been Maria, Nanjo, Genji and maybe Kumasawa).

There is room for fake deaths in some episodes,...

What's the problem with episode 2? Jessica's death in Turn could very easily be fake, it's never declared in red and she doesn't have any graphically described injuries. If we assume a Shkannon or...

That was certainly interesting. I may be on completely the wrong track but I think I get Redaction a lot more now.

So the idea is that "Mrs Marion" may hold a lot of responsibility for the...

The issue with Erika-as-Yasu is that Erika and Kanon definitely inhabit two different bodies. The idea that she represents the cynical side of Yasu makes sense though, she does seem like an...

Has anyone read the Dawn manga? Ryukishi may have corrected it there, like he corrected Banquet's first twilight.

I think "Every closed room is indeed perfectly sealed" is a fundamental, unbreakable rule of Beatrice's games anyway. She uses magic, not tricks.

In any case though, remember that the ep6 logic...

I agree with that interpretation, and I think the Maria parallel is a good point. Yasu's plan was naive and doomed to fail, and the weaknesses in it expose the fact that she didn't really want to...

It's strongly hinted that the ep7 Tea Party (or something very like it) is what Eva wrote in her diary though. And thst's explicitly stated in the manga.

The Kinzo/Yasu thing seems like an interesting parallel. I guess you could go one further and include Kyrie's eventual resolve to kill Asumu as something similar.

Wasn't it implied that Kinzo instigated the fighting between the Japanese and the Italians?

The part about Rosa isn't really important to my theory, I'm basically just restating what the scene tells us. The fact that Rosa hadn't fired is why Kyrie shoots her first, yeah.

Actually, I'm not so sure on that bit. They may have tried to keep Battler in the dark so he could live - hence the hostage situation that Tohya vaguely recalled while writing Alliance. That way he...
