Can anybody tell me what that update said? xD

I had also thought that the project was dead. This proved me wrong xD

Well...don't get your hopes up. That update is just about the karaoke and cell phone version of the Umineko theme song and another song. It actually has nothing at all to do with the anime.

So I was right in thinking it wasn't very major huh. ^^;

Well I hope there are some updates to come soon... I personally think that it would be cool to reveal the people who'll be doing the voices for the characters 2 at a time or so every week or two.

Oh well, at least they remembered that page existed

Edit: My friend said that Frontier Works is doing the anime for Umineko. Is this true or just a rumor?

They helped out with marketing and such for the Higurashi anime too so I wouldn't be surprised if they're along for the ride this time too. 'Doing the anime' makes it sound like they're an animation studio though, which they aren't.

I guess so.
Still...it's odd they haven't given any new info on the anime...are they waiting for the release of the 4th game?

I think they're probably still scrounging the budget they're going to need to do Episode 3 I'd be inclined to think they aren't waiting for episode 4 because they clearly said it'd gone into production already. Probably just taking their time, and hopefully when they do start giving dates and such it'll air a few months after. Hopefully. I'm expecting it'll start airing just after I leave Japan though just to spite me.

Hahaha xD Everyone keeps telling me that episode is loooooong (And good xD).
What I meant was, like, after they release the 4th game, they'll release the info about who's producing it, the character designs...and a few more voices. (Although I doubt they've been keeping that secret. It might just be hard to find a right voice)

I have a feeling it'll come either summer or fall of next year.

Well an announcement around Comiket, therefore cooinciding with the release of episode 4, seems plausible actually. They've had the website up for a while now, they can't keep us waiting that much longer, surely. It does seem strange that they've still only announced Battler and Jessica though, I figured they'd trickle them out slowly during this long wait but the site pretty much died.

And yes, Ep3 is awesome. Comiket can't come fast enough ;_;

Yup. Like the first trailer...it came...what? One or 2 weeks after the summer Comiket....or at least it appeared in youtube. So I guess they'll release something after this Comiket. (Time flies...but not fast enough xDDDD) I kinda understand why they released Battler first, since he is veeery important, but they would've put at least the rest of the cousins if they had the voices. They probably have them now, but they are making us wait xP
I check the site sometimes...and it's never updated, until now, with the karaoke tracks of the opening xD

I have the game...but I have to wait for the patch. I know a small bit of japanese...but not enough to understand the game xD So I have to look at the images and guess what they say

Alright, if it wasn't already obvious, Horie Yui is now the #1 most-wanted person in the world for making slightly awkward cute sounds.
Nothing else explains this decision

I don't have a problem with it, but I'm a little unsure about how kuro-Maria is going to turn out. We'll see.

I am confident she can do it well because she is skillful in mature voice too
(for example Eri in School Rumble).

That was a surprise to me, Horie Yui...

Horie Yui's serious Hanyuu sounds a little too adult to work with serious Maria, IMO (childish Hanyuu maybe works with Childish Maria, or not).
Even though Rika/Hanyuu and Maria seem to be of the same age, we know Hanyuu is a god, so the adult tone doesn't look weird on her (the same goes for Tamura Yukari with Rika).

She'll have to work out something new for Maria, or else, it'll get kinda of weird...

For Maria the most important thing would be to find someone with a quality creepy laugh. I am not sure how much Horie Yui fits that requirement but I am not very fond of her and I don't like Maria either, so it coudl work.

I have no idea why they pulled Horie for THAT. I mean, she really need to change her fancy voice, because that would certainly sound very wrong, until Maria's anime design is appropriate for that...

No really, that's like putting Tamura in Beatrice's slot (if they do, there will be a mass murder already)

For some reason I have a fear that Beato's VA will be Itō

I actually think this might just work but then again I am the weirdo who likes Tamura Yukari's serious voice so much more than her usual moe voice. Anyway, it would have been awesome if Maria was voiced by Kuwashima Houko and Beatrice by Tanaka Rie but one can't have everything.
