Heh! Fools!! xDD
IT WAS ALL JUST A BIG PHONE PRANK!!

^^

Now being serious... a few thoughts and theories
Jessica killed George. That's why she knew he was dead. Regarding her own death...suicide. That's why she knew what way she would die. It's hard to shot yourself with a shotgun in the head. The repulsion will most likely fling the gun out of your hand when you shoot yourself. I don't think Battler would have searched through properly, he said himself that the scene was very gruesome didn't he? The weapon could have been under her bed or something. She phoned Battler almost going insane and ready to kill herself. Maybe she didn't wanted Battler to know the truth about the murders and all this. So she told him about magic. Without love the truth cannot be seen, was it? Magic is the way Battler wouldn't know that his beloved friends and family killed each other. The same with Kyrie, they wanted to protect Battler from the harsh truth which would have broke him.

Also,
Jessica Ushiromiya killed Kinzo
Why would the servants keep quite about the death of their master? Because Krauss ordered them to? No, I don't think so, the servants that were in contact with Kinzo the most weren't really loyal to Krauss. We heard that Kinzo wasn't really fond of Jessica and had a bad temper. And wasn't it said that he once hit her with a woodensword. (Wasn't that mentin in Episode 1? not sure). Jessica who has a bad temper as well could have kiled the sick Kinzo in accident. This leading the servants to lie and protect her. Especially Kanon and Shannon would lie because of such a reason. I think the same goes even for Genji. He must have understood that Jessica didn't want that to happen and didn't want to destroy her young life. Also I don't think Krauss knew of that, the servants most also have lied to him. But I think Natsuhi knew. That's why she got angry at Eva in Episode 1 as latter denied that Kinzo was still alive.

also about Lamda who said in the
Kanon did not die in an accident
but he also died because of homocide or suicide. So HOW could he die in Episode 1?? The answer is...Kanon didn't die at all.

About Battler's sin
I think it is a sin the Battler Ushiromiya we know commited and I think there is only on Battler. Beatrice said all this to confuse Battler about his existence. Also I thinkBattler is Kyire and Rudolph's son Maybe Asumo had a miscarriage and tricked Kyrie and the others that she gave birth to Battler and Kyrie had the miscarriage. MAybe even with help of a fraction of Kyrie's family.
The sin he commited six years ago. I think there are two sins he could have commited
The one he said himself. Maybe the refusal of the Ushiromiya name did not only bother him and Rudolph but the others of the family as well. Leading to hatred and anger and maybe Kinzo's death.
Or.... Battler cause indirectly the death of Asumo.


Woah Episode 4 sure was fun.

Actually I'm sort of believing that they are actually the same, in a way different from game battler and meta battler. When you consider it, Beato did accept that Bern had a new piece and seems to refer to this very same piece that would participate in the metaworld who she accepts as an ally of Battler. Bern specifically did choose her and did tell her that she can observe the events of 1986 as one with powers of a Golden Witch, which would also give her the ability to participate in the metaworld. This would come out that she has the same ability as Beatrice who can seemingly enter the game from the metaworld and directly influence her pieces, an ability meta Battler does not have.

Actually now that I'm in episode 4, my ideas regarding the existence of Multiple Battlers seems to contradict Beatrice's claims of eternal resurrection:

Natural death can also work. Of course, I do not like this explanation either, but it is as viable as this. And I really doubt you can fake a death with a stake that reached the lungs.

I will say it again, but duh: no, unless Kyrie's narration was fake, you CANNOT fake a miscarriage at all. period. It is physically impossible to do that. Any baby swap is arguably impossible.
Miscarriage itself is the death of the fetus before reaching the critical 20-24 weeks limit. And you obviously cannot wait the 9months before realizing there was miscarriage: it is i-m-p-o-s-s-i-b-l-e (bleeding and ultrasound exams are an obvious reasons for this).

Not singling you out because I want to point it out: It's homicide. There's an error in this very discussion where Battler says "homocide" then "homicide" in the next bit of text.

There's also a point toward the end where Battler is referred to as "Batter." I forget where.

Wasn't Kanon's death stated in red?

About the two Battlers.

1) Battler definitely has no problem saying in red he is Ushiromiya Battler
2) Battler definitely has no problem saying in red Ushiromiya Asumu is Ushiromiya Battler's mother
3) Battler cannot say in red that he is Asumu's son.

How do you solve this conundrum without theorizing the existence of two different Battlers?

"Battler's a girl."

I'd buy the "two Battlers" thing over that, though.

Thoughts on Ep. 4:

Spoiler:
1. Given that her "true form" was Kumasawa, you could say she's always been trying, at least.

2. Beato's restrictions are stronger than you might think, because if she uses red to tell Battler how a crime really happened, that's her own loss. As a result, any explanation that is internally consistent and denies magic is sufficient to defeat her, even "minibombs in food" and the like.

I have to wonder - did Kyrie give a stillbirth or miscarriage BEFORE July 15th. If there was a baby swap then it would need to be done on July 15th before Asumu woke up after giving birth. It's impossible to fake miscarriages but if Kyrie was lied to then it would be different.

Example of what I mean:

Kyrie goes to the hospital to give birth
She is put to sleep or drugged to make the experience less painful
Her baby is taken away after being born
Kyrie wakes up and doctors tell she miscarried and that it was a stillbirth or something.

Then she would believe she miscarried or gave a stillbirth. It doesn't have to be that a miscarriage was faked - rather that one never happened to begin with.

Also I have a question about the shed: In Episode 1 didn't they say that the shed could with a master key? Why is the separate key for the shed now if that's the case??

Well the minibombs in food could be countered without any red truth because it didn't resolve the issue at all. It was stated in red that Maria received the real key and from that point until the time Rosa took it to unlock the chapel the following morning, noone used it.

So even if the minibombs explain how the culprit himself wasn't inside of the chapel, it still doesn't explain how the victims managed to enter.

I think it is more logical to assume that Beatrice just decided to play an act feigning to yeld this game from the start and faked her agony. Actually this what Lambda says.
However Beatrice didn't lose, in the end she decided to use that trump card in the end, so there was no need for her to deny the rest. She just let Battler have his way, because that didn't matter.

To make a chess comparison, it is like letting your opponent eat all your Rooks, your bishops and your queen, just because by doing so he doesn't notice you are going to checkmate him with the knights.

@Marion: Klashikari is gonna snap now XD misscarriage and stillbirth are two different things. Unless Kyrie used the inappropriate word, what you envision couldn't happen at all.

Please check what is miscarriage, because at this rate I will lose more than few hair...
Miscarriage cannot be a stillbirth. Strictly speaking, it happens when the fetus dies before the critical cap of 24 weeks. You discover this due to bleeding or the ultrasound exams done by routine. You cannot have 9 months of term, then "oh, it is a miscarriage!". Absolutely impossible.

And the term is exactly the same in japanese, so it is downright impossible to mistake stillbirth with miscarriage.

No, they never said the shed could be open by the master key.

Spoiler for Sorry to turn the topic of conversation towards a wild theory, but after remembering the fact that Beatrice is a title, I have come up with a wild hypothesis about Battler's sin and Beatrice's identity:

well the most relevant hole I see is that you need to accept the supernatural. Yes a ghost is not a witch, but does that satisfies Battler? Also your theory presume you can accept red truth as metaphorical statements ("death isn't actually death"). this would kinda suck.

Quote:

I can confirm this. This is the closed room of episode1. Kanon could not open it with his master key, he had to go to the servant room to get the only key that could open it. This obviously put the servants as main suspects.

BTW this episode confirms that the "master key" is actually a bundle of about 10 master keys

I'm just assuming that there's something supernatural about the game, much like Higurashi. If there can't be any compromises, then yeah, ghost theory is out.

With the supernatural anything can be explained same as with magic. ESP powers can explain everything as well.

Ooh, that's right, he's trying to prove it wasn't supernatural in the first place, not just deny witches. I forgot

This doesn't give an accurate time of death, but I think Gohda and Kumasawa had to have died after Kanon. Because Kanon was definitly the 9th victim. Unless you think the killing order goes something like First Twilight -> Gohda and Kumasawa -> Kanon -> Jessica and George.

I do not think it is so unbelievable.

Not necasarrily voice distortion, but I can think of other things. With a phone, it's abit harder to differentiate voices, so the culprit could have used this to the advantage. Not only that, but all of the phone calls they could have been forced to say those things. They were hostages after all.

I'll point it out again, but I find what she states with Kinzo to be a bit weird.

"Nobody would mistake Kinzo by sight."

This means that it's entirly possible to mistake Kinzo by hearing. It might be disprooved in a later game, but it's an alternate theory to the "someone toke Kinzo's name" theory.

This is much like my theory, though you're making Jessica the culprit it seems. I think Kyrie was the culprit.

I believe the culprit told George and Jessica their test was to "have a shootout with my accomplice", and it was actually both of them having a shootout. Jessica shoot George, and George hurt Jessica (much like Eva did in Episode 3). Jessica retreated to her room, called Battler, and ended up killing herself.

Kyrie, after killing almost everyone, came to her senses suddenly, and told Battler to believe in magic so he wouldn't find out she was behind the killings.

I think it's entirely possible. Genji and Kanon would probably keep quiet for sure if they were told to. Furthermore, if Kanon, Shannon, and Kumasawa told everyone, esspecially after Krauss hid the death, it would cause a lot of trouble for Jessica, so I think that would motivate them to remain silent.

This is a possible theory, however, it could also be that there was a trap. Beato simply says "No human alive or dead could kill Kanon", not that it wasn't a murder.

Well maybe you should read my post again. I don't think that Genji and KAnon especially them would keep quit about the murder of their master normally even if KRauss ordered them too. Because their loyality belongs to Kinzo. But that they would keep quit if there was some kinda reason.
Quote:
George hurt Jessica (much like Eva did in Episode 3).
I don't think he hurt her because...remember how much she panicked? How terrified she was? If that would be the case she wouldn't be able to talk to Battler that calmly.

I do not think that is the case, because even if they were loyal, they had the "furniture complex". It's not like Genji is completly unloyal to the children with Kinzo either. I'm not saying it's not possible Jessica killed Kinzo, just that it's still possible that it was for some other reason.

It is very possible he did not hurt her. However, just because she wasn't panicked doesn't mean she wasn't hurt. There would be some time between running from the Arbor to her room, and she probably had time to calm down.

Once again, refering to Episode 3, she was certainly panicked by being shot, but calmed down after awhile.

Furthermore, if we assume she had planned to commit suicide during or before she called Battler, she probably would be calm, despite a wound.
