But anyway, the censored words in a particular station are the following words:
下女 - (gejo) maid servant
仮腹 - (karibara) borrowed womb
端女 - (hashitame) lowly maid servant

For the wife of an Ushiromiya heir, these are very heavy insults. Forget the status, these are heavy insults for a woman.
whichever version I watched it was not censored.

The censored version was added to a stream I believe. I think there were also some networks that did censor it.

In Japan those words are considered an insult towards status and women in general, as Christen said. Then again, if anyone called me a maid servant I would be insulted too.

As of now, no they aren't. Though IIRC, they'll be doing releases for DVD/BD when they come out.

thanks for the answer, I am watching it in spanish (with a friend who does not speak english) and don't care too much about the quality of that version since I already read the novel; tho I am wondering on the english version.

Just watch this episode .

It seems promising . Battler remind me Phoenix Wright lol
So the plot is that the parents want the heritage and share it among them .
What its hilarious its that they look cute but they can do ugly face XD
With the epitaphe it seems that it requires some dead to be able to get the gold .
Look like the drama/detective/murder will begin
I think that they'll kill each other to get this gold ahah what a family
Well , Battler is a perv and Maria is cute but his "haugh" reminds me Hanyu in Higurashi ^^

Gotta like the opening

You have only seen the first episode and you already think he's like Phoenix Wright? Geez I guess it's even more obvious than I thought, and I thought it was pretty blatant already.

Heh, but that's Ryuukishi for you. Even though he probably borrowed some stuff from Phoenix Wright, Battler is almost nothing like Phoenix Wright. Well, except for his pose in the OP...

For starters, Phoenix Wright uses logic.

Well of course, I didn't mean to say they are the same. But the resemblance is striking and I can't think it's coincidential.

I watched this episode again after reading the VN. and sigh, the battler's way of getting reaction is so skewed in the adaption that it's not funny.......
and yeah, I go back and see the complains previously said in this thread, it's quite obvious once you read the VN. All the subtle characterisations are just ignored.
For a newcomer it might be good, but for VN readers, it's just bleh. Therefore I think it's better for me to hold off any advance reading of VN until after the episode.

Hey [E], it's me.

also, add that he's a pedo.

I don't know about putting Battler into Pheonix's pose, but looking at the OP, Battler is the one sorting out the mystery.

Anyway, nice evil Maria smile at the OP, which makes me think she's possibly the source of the following murders.

Hi, I'm coming into this a bit late, but since a lot of people said they were interested in the impressions of a viewer unfamiliar with the VN... here they are.
I had absolutely no idea about what Umineko was when I started watching it, I haven't even seen the promo material, just one picture of Battler opposing Beatrice which said he was a private investigator. Oo
The "photo snaps" were useful. Yes, I didn't remember all of them at once (when the next important event happened, I had to strain my memory to find out which family members were lacking), but it was ok. It's an old tradition of classic mystery to introduce big families or groups in that way, most of those characters are nothing but plot fodder anyway.

I'm coming to this even later, having finished the Higurashi series not long ago, thought I'd check this out too. Battler kind of looks a bit like slightly younger Gene Starwind, from Outlaw Star, sans scars. Boy that Maria girl makes some creepy faces, she's going to be an interesting one I can tell already.
