[Manga] Umineko no Naku Koro ni

Completely forgot about creating Umineko manga thread when it has been released. Created in manga section, most likely will be moved over to its own sub-forum once anime is aired.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wikipedia
Umineko no Naku Koro ni on wikipedia

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As of June 21, 2008:

Umineko no Naku Koro ni - Ep. 1 Legend of the Golden Witch


Umineko no Naku Koro ni - Ep. 2 Turn of the Golden Witch

I saw a copy of the tankoubon in my local Japanese bookshop the other day and was debating whether to order it from Amazon.jp or pay 3 times the original price.

The cover features Maria and Battler, click the thumbnail for the larger version.

Hello! This is unasuvas of Sea Cat Scans, the group that scanlated the first 3 chapters of the Umineko manga. I'm glad to say that after months of waiting, we finally got a hold of the raws for chapters 4 - 7 for Episode 1: Legend of the Golden Witch, as well as the first chapter of Episode 2: Turn of the Golden Witch. (Thanks to the people at jCafe and the people at this forum that pointed out the way )

Serenade_beta will be translating them all and I'll be editing as usual but it might take a while until we release it. But I just wanna give you guys a heads up.

(Sorry for being so slow. Didn't see this thread earlier^^)

This is great! You did a great job on the one chapter I've read by SeaCatScans!

Anyways, does anyone know how close to the story in the games the manga is? I'm currently debating wether or not I should try to play the games, or if I can just read the manga. Wouldn't want to miss out on a lot of story^^.

The mangá is the same, the difference is that they just cut off in the mangá unnecessary and boring scenes like the one when they keep talking waiting the airplane in the game. Well, that's what I think, maybe other people can consider this scenes important XD

They don't always cut "unecessary" things. In some instances, they skipped a bit too much. For instance, the siblings combined attack against Krauss and the reversal of the situation was so digest that the tension is almost laughable.

It is keeping its essences, but the manga is taking sometimes toop much shortcuts.

I think it's chapter 6, "Eternal Promise". It's the first chapter of the second volume!

If you look at the third post in the thread you will see that unasuvas is working on chapters 4-7 as we speak. So, you'll just have to wait. They're doing a great job, and great jobs take some time : >

Enjoying the manga a lot, thanks unasuvas and the Sea Cat team! I prefer this translation style over that of the sound novel so far, in fact. Will still follow both of course...

Still working on it. Slowly... but surely. Serenade_beta has done a fantastic job on the translations but I still have to clean the pages and typeset it. But if you would like to see the scanlation status, I posted a little something on my LJ. It shows exactly how many pages are done so far, so I hope that helps.

So please, be patient. We're really working hard on this.

Don't assume someone is being impatient just because they're asking for an update after a while.^^;

I wasn't assuming you were impatient or anything. 'Be patient' just sounded like the right thing to say since I knew that Sea Cat Scans was taking a while for it's release. Sorry about the misunderstanding.
