Though, to be fair, I'm really digging Battler as the protagonist--much more than I ever liked Keiichi
His moments around this time in the visual novel were also a good indication of if you enjoyed him as a protagonist. Battler is probably my favorite character for the character traits he shows here. I think I might have cheered.

Maybe even the manga before the anime, the manga lays things out similarly anyway (infact, alot of the anime's angle look very close to the manga's)

Very pleased to see that the proverbial acorn has not fallen far from the oak--Ax Crazy loli Maria got some good screen time, but came along with the unfortunate presence of Studio DEEN's typically Off-Model artwork. The facial expressions were quite frankly ridiculous in Higurashi--they aren't any better (and might be considered worse) in Umineko.

Maria's rapidly shaping up to be my favorite character, which if you know me, you could have seen this coming a mile away. I certainly do love the psycho lolis, DEEN's Off Model tendencies notwithstanding.
I like Maria and Eva too, but mainly because up to now, they acted too evil to be actually bad. Maria's "split personality" is scary still. One minute she is all Nipahhh Uuuuuu and the next moment she turned her L4 mode on....

Eagerly awaiting more--I'm following this series more arduously than any of the others now--especially since Haruhi has wound up so maddening with Endless Eights, and Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo #26 remains unsubbed.

Well, I'm pretty fixated on Canaan as well.
A bit out of topic , but now i am in such mode that i don't mind more E8; btw Sora Kake 26 was subbed like 2 weeks ago...

Maria is the moe and the anti-moe, depending on how Ax Crazy she feels at the time. ^^;

All I can say is...Maria is creepy ._. How come nobody feels it's strange when the kid suddenly acts like she's possessed. I mean, one minute she's all :3 and then suddenly she's all like MWHAHAHA YOU'RE ALL GONNA DIE MWHAHAHAHA.
*doesn't like Maria*
*Doesn't like creepy kids*
And man, people are dropping like flies in this series O_O 3rd episode and already a whole bunch of people have been killed.

Maria's facial expression on this episode was nearly the same as in the manga (see chapter 9). And I really liked it, specially with Yui Horie's voice acting.

Yeah I thought this was weird, too. Do they adults act that way in the manga?

I found it funny how Maria didn't give a damn about her mother being dead, or her uncles and aunts.
I guess those slaps had some effect on her.

Even an abused child would show SOME emotion to such news, the fact that Maria has literally no reaction what so ever to this news just makes her seem a little creepy to me.

The adults did find it a little weird sometimes, but overall they ignored her.

Well if you look closely she doesn't show any emotion at all.
The doctor is like: Hey Maria, your mother and your uncles/aunts are all dead.
And she is like: Cool. But I don't care.

She is beyond creepy. Even a creepy person would care.

She's actually happy, look at when they find the blood in the dining room, she grins.

What I find more disturbing is Eva. In the case of Maria I know why she's happy, you should get it by now. But in the case of Eva the way she takes advantage to the situation to still prosecuting her feud against Natsuhi is really incredible. Her bothers are all dead, an assassin is lurking around and she doesn't seem bothered at all, she isn't really saddened.

She probably already knew they were all going to die, so there's no surprise on her part when she was told what she already knew.

Maria: "yay blood!"


Now my opinion about the episode, it was alright I guess. The whole high about seeing Umineko animated fainted. I liked a few things. Eva is the awesome and the voice acting is superb with one exception..I just can't stand Kanon's voice. It makes me shudder. Oh and Jessica's almost fainting o.O ..... I imagined her reaction rather different. I liked how they portrayed Battler but I think his "coolness" when he enters the kitchen is a bit too "cool". Maybe my take on Battler is just off.
I liked the Natsuhi kills Kinzo scene and the Kinzo leaving his study scene. They just looked kinda funny but cool the same time. Also the nice mackerel they were eating. Yummy^^
I'm a bit let done because the lack of angry jessica and her asthma fit but well~ I hope they just don't cut my favorite pairing...

jessicaxinhalator is the awesome

In the anime Jessica doesn't have asthma but she's prone to fainting instead. d

YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MUCH COOL BATTLER >:C!!!

I don't think the hype has died. I'm still glad Umineko is animated and I love watching it, despite some cuts~ The fact that the anime has garnered people even before the anime began is a huge plus and I love watching the new kids getting mindscrewed !

Well, I think to much coolness is uncool. For me Battler always had a natural self-confidence and was sure of him self what made him "cool". You know the big cool brother type.

But I must agree with Marion. I found that scene incredibly cool. I loved it. It wasn't overboard imho.

Well, she's probably grinning at what the others are saying at the time, instead of the scene in front of her.

@Kitsu
Don't forget that this is still Episode 1. The series hasn't really started yet...
