If you are refering "characters with a portrait", then perhaps. If not, then Higurashi still has way more characters in it...

Umineko has 28 that appeared so far... not including Anju or the new "Johny Depp" guy.

And on the Higurashi wiki page I counted 28... but I'm pretty sure that there are still a few missing characters... like Nomura...

They're both pretty close, I guess it's just the different setting and story that makes it seem like Umineko has more. I think Umineko has more MAJOR characters than Higurashi did but it seems to have less minor characters.

Please correct me if I'm wrong though. D=

They are missing a whole bunch of minor characters in that wiki. There are the Sonozaki Uncles (like 5-6 of them), parents of the club members, classmates that has names (like Okamura and the other guy...can't remember top of my head), Miyo's childhood friends from the orphanage, Tokyo faction people such as Koizumi...list goes on. It's even bigger if you count people without names, like all those guys in the Yamainu that only has callsigns.

Umineko...currently Main cast 18, witches 3, named characters 9 (from Asumu to Kawada to the lawyer Watanabe), stakes 7, random nameless people 3 (captain of the ship in ep1, servent who got injured on the job, Maria's father), sitting at 40. Oh and "Johnny Depp" = 41.

Don't care the amount of chars we have here
as long as Ryukishi07 gives us a logical explanation to all the events, it's fine =.=

More speculations (english lines taken from translations by theacefrehley):

From ep1->2, we see that "Beatrice has granted some wishes" for endroll of 1, shown from the 3 lines at the end:

"For George it was the fiancee he lost." -> George flirts with Shannon and gets to die with her.

"For Jessica it was the person in her thoughts she lost." -> Kannon Blade, and gets to die together

"For Maria it was the love of her mother she lost." -> Rosa Musou

Now, for 3 to respond to 2's enroll...
"Kinzo wanted the fiancee he lost." -> REAL Beatrice shows up in person?

"Maria wanted her mother's love she lost." -> Rosa Musou, this time Rosa has the full gauge and level 4/5 weapon?

"Genji wanted a peaceful sleep." -> Genji dies in the beginning?

It would be interesting if Beato came out, but I doubt it would happen. Seeing as it would almost confirm that she did it, even though we have to prove she didn't. Maybe it's a Beatrice, we'll figure it out soon enough.

Umineko is not something which a normal human being can solve
Just like Higurashi, it abuts the realm of unsolveable but does not go across the line
So who here agress that Umineko & Higurashi > Harry Potter?

They're two different genres.

Besides the list of flaws in the Harry Potter world is immense. And let's not even mention how badly the ending went.

But this isn't time for a flame war.

I only wish for more appearances from our moe-witches

Just asking everyone's opinions, that's all, not trying to start a flame war
Besides, Harry Potter doesn't have the weird deaths we have here XD
So it's 1 for Umi XD

Yeah I got that from Maple Story
My younger cousin was addicted recently and he kept repeating that phrase whenever I ask him a question involving Why
So I figured it's time to Ultra-Quote

I just thought it was wierd that you suddenly brought up HP out of the blue. Did you just finish reading one or something? Don't think we can properly compare umineko with anything before we read the ending.

There's actually no proof that Beato is actually evil at all. She hasn't done anything actually evil.

I find her quite benevolent actually, if what Bernakastel was right, she isn't doing anything; so the repeating events are all Beato's doing, if she really wanted to kill them all she wouldn't bother with finding different possibilities. In a way she's giving Battler more and more chances.

The way she is depicted is meant to make her look evil, but she has to play the role of the bad guy or else the whole story would seem just like Higurashi.

That's my theory or now til I lose faith! May Beatrice the Golden bless us all!

EDIT: Also I can't seem to find a clean version of the portrait for Beato in ep1.

I always wondered; the dress is made of layers? That must be quite heavy.

And who do you suppose made all those paintings?
