The demo movie shows quite a bit of recap from ep3, with stuff like Sisesta sister + heart, Enge jumping off, Virgilla opening her eyes, and so on. But things I find weird/intriging is...

1. Pairing. We see George-Shannon, Kanon-Jessica, that fine. Even Beatrice-Virgilla and Eva-Beatrice-LD is fine. But I can't really see the connection between Berkenstal-Ronove...

2.Only Maria is left at the end. It's the scene where everyone was standing in front of the mansion, then all disappears except Maria. Ep1...?

3. Battler's family potrait. 2 faces are white-outed, one besides rudolf and one under. Judging from the shirt, the one below should be Enge. Then the one beside is...Kyrie? But why is her face white-outed? Unless it's Asumu...?

Then again, just the title word "Alliance" is intriging enough...a full force of Beato + Virgria +Eva-Beatrice? Maybe add in LD? Or perhaps it's witches vs witches?

Awesome OP, obviously. MAD video-like effects (I especially liked the War Towers, Kanon's sword and Virgilia's eye ones), and pretty stylish to boot.

I'm however saddened that this OP pretty much implies more and more that Virgi would obviously not on Battler's side (I was hoping the end was just a farce of Beato, but meh OTZ. It makes all the flashbacks with little sense then)

I think you are overthinking about it. The silhouette of the right person is unmistakenly Kyrie. I think the white out is just to have consistency with some "solar ray", nothing past this point (though it conveniently white out chibi ange face).

Can someone please post a high quality download of the new OP? I saw it in low quality on youtube, but it seems like it could be more enjoyable in HQ ^^"

The text is just comments people have made. You can turn them off when watching the video.

That video is better than the youtube one, but it isn't better than the one on the Melon Books' site. Most likely, there won't be a higher quality one until episode four is actually out.

Edit:
Wait, are people having trouble streaming off the Melon Books' site? It loaded faster than the nico one for me.

Awesome new OP, I wonder if it'll still keep that one when it moves to the answer arcs.

And the name is definately odd. My first thought was a BeatoxBattler alliance, but, that seems pretty unlikely. And I do hope that Battler dosnt lose his main character status xD I quite like seeing as the main protagainst.

I cant wait to read Ep.3 now.

Those are the comments, you can put them off , Look at the bottom there's a little bird with 'com' , click on it and it should disappear.


Anyway Awesome Op!

When I saw this thread for the first time it really surprised me, lol.
Alliance of the Golden Witch? It sounds awesome. I won't speculate what the title possibly means as I have yet to play the 3rd episode, though.

The new opening animation looks NEAT.

Geez, I think I love Umineko way too much.

Perhaps I am , but I can't help but to associate that with the various Enge related comments from ep1~3. Enje is there, but also sometimes has her existance denied at some places, which combined together becomes a claim of the bad relationship between Battler and Enje. (Just because Enje likes Battler, as stated in ep3's TIPS, doesn't that the converse applies ) And the picture adds more oil to the fire by the claim that "the picture is showing Battler's inside world: that he never acknowledged Enje/Kyrie"

Or perhaps can be twisted into the fake Battler theory...




Here's a screencap taken from 2ch, for those who want to see the scenes that were flashed too fast in the video:

Spoiler:
Battler also has his back towards Ange in the new op... and if you think about it why would there be any reason for Battler to like Ange with the way he reacted to his dad's remarriage. It would be more likely for him to think of Ange as someone who replaced him

I wonder if something is going to happen with Kanon/Jessica in Ep. 4, since in the opening their part was all %&*$@^#&$ at the end o_O

Well, Jessica and Kanon were all %&*$@^#&$ at the end of ep3 too. Unlike the first opening, it doesn't look like they added that much hinting about the newer episodes that we haven't already seen. I thought it was more like a recap of ep3, actually.

And I hope this doesn't mean they're skipping out on the new OP for ep5 that Ryuukishi's been hinting at for a while.

...Haah, longer than ep3, he says...this is going to be fun to translate...but I can't wait!
