Rose theory

And i thought she would be used for dinner =(
Quote:
Also, looking near the ending with people going through the chessboard - I didn't see Rudolf, Rosa and Natsuhi in that sequence.
Natsuhi is there. Towards the end. Rosa is missing, Rudolf is missing.

Isn't it strange? I do remember... in the higurashi PS 2 opening for the answer arc.... all the higurashi characters were shown at one point (including tomitake, irie) ... ahem ... except Takano.

I know this sounds very weird... but:

Even though Rosa obviously likes having romantic three-way getaways with some boyfriends, I highly doubt she would ever do something like that with her brother XD Same as Rudolf.

INCEST IS WINCE-*gets shot*

...but seriously. We still didn't know why Rudolf went all "hai gaiz gess wut im gonna dieee". Maybe we finally get to find out here. I dunno why Rosa is mysterious in Ep 1 though.

Ryukushi might be tricking us with the Natsuhi undertones to make us believe it's the answer arc for EP 1 though.

If you look at the sprite though from the preview pictures, you see that the shadow has exactly the same side.

while watching the OP again, I found 2 sequences which were ominous to me:

The first image is the kakera field, so maybe he and Bern end up having a talk or something.

And Kinzo was the primary antagonist in the last game, so maybe that's why.

I'm not 100% sure, but isn't it the new girl that shows up behind Battler in that scene?

No it's Bernkastel. Look at it again you'll see Bern's hair shape. If you watch the OP you'll also see Bern flying into the scene before Battler comes.

Because it was discussed earlier in this topic, I wish to add my opinion about the number of people on the island, because it can be debated in all episodes.
I don't know if someone has already thought of this, sorry if I'm repeating what someone else said. (I'll introduce myself later today)

Spoiler for Theory about the number of people on the island:

Yeah, I had a theory about people traveling back and forth between Kuwadorian's harbor and the mansion, but it's probably not a functional explanation for the final question in the EP4 tea.

I want to discuss the 4th, because I think it's much more important a day than the 5th, and that the biggest narrative misleading we've seen in ep1-4 is to marginalize the importance of the first day of the conference and instead focus on the murders on the 5th.

The critical events that determine who is killed when and by whom on the 5th must, by necessity, occur on the 4th. If they happened earlier, they wouldn't lead to different outcomes. If they happened later, people wouldn't be turning up dead first thing in the morning. So the question is, what happens on the 4th? And what's different? Whose actions determine what happens?

Some examples:

ep1 - Nanjo is hanging out in the parlor, the children go to the beach for lunch, and the adults argue over the inheritance in the parlor. Kanon is unaccounted-for.

ep2 - Maria has a fight with Rosa and never leaves the rose garden. Kanon talks to her there (he wasn't seen after the first rose garden thing until 6pm in ep1). The cousins stay in the mansion and do not go to the beach, so the adults can't argue. "Beatrice" shows up, Kyrie says she isn't feeling well and wants to rest. Rosa remembers Maria is in the garden just as the rain starts and meets "Beatrice." Battler takes a nap in the parlor, causing everyone else to leave the parlor (Kyrie/Rudolf go to Eva/Hideyoshi's room to talk, etc.). Nanjo has been Kinzo's chess opponent "since before evening," meaning he's unaccounted-for.

ep3 - I'm not entirely sure what happens here.

ep4 - Obviously some very bad shit goes down on the 4th in this episode.

If I had to guess, I'd say it's what Maria and Battler do that has the biggest influence on things. But it might also be what the adults talk about and whether they're able to. Obviously the presence of "Beatrice" in ep2 screws things up, but if we accept that "Beatrice" is one of the 18, then it's possible that what the characters did on the 4th influenced her ability to appear. For example, if she's Shannon, she didn't have to go to the beach on the 4th in ep2, which might have allowed her to put a plan in motion that didn't previously happen. Yet there are other things that don't seem influenced by that. Like why was Nanjo in Kinzo's room (or claims he was) in ep2? It doesn't seem like anything anyone did influenced that.

I just stumbled upon this YouTube video, which seems to have even more screen-shots of Episode 5. Could someone (maybe chronotrig?) translate them to English, so that we can see, if they contain any more clues on what goes on there?

No. It's always been stated that Beato loves random chance.

Well, maybe it's a bit weird on Lambda's part, though.
