I've got to say, I liked pretty much everything about this episode except the toned down system0 remix......and the fact that they've used Golden Slaughterer 3 times now without getting past the intro.
Are they ever going to play the full version?

Given the time constraints, I think they did a good job of adding in Jessica's asthma. Still, it feels like for Episode 1-5, they'll actually have too much time on their hands...

At this point I expect an "extra" in the next episode, because they seriously can't make a whole episode with the remaining material, unless they drastically slow down their pace (which would be stupid at this point).

Not only would that be stupid but totally out of place.
Everything is totally fast and then they make an emergency stop and putter around

It depends on how long they want to spend with the remaining material. The 'thing' after the first arc is actually long, even if they did dribble a bit.
One of my favourite things about this episode is how they used the games 'Ahaha' for Beato. XDDDD

Maybe they will put the End Roll + Bring the Fate.

That's... 4:39 min.

If they do that they will get kicked in the ass by me
I mean that would be slightly boring in an anime

Let's stop talking about future episode her, at least as VN players

But EP1 End Roll is... awesome.

I think that was what hooked me completely into Umineko.

Yeah of course, but I assume it's Deen's intention to make her creepy. So my question... will those faces get worse?

Of course they can. They haven't made a shoop-da-whoop face yet. XD

She's gone creepy, but Battler hitting her and her reaction to it was rather funny. I half expected her to break out an Ayu line from Key's Kanon.

The faces will get more funny in Episode 3 I think. XDD Not going to say anymore.
I feel sorry for Maria! Everyone must think she's a stupid kid.

Well!

Done with the raw, but I'll save my vote for when I've seen it subbed and can be sure I understood everything. I gotta say that I felt a lot better after seeing the episode. A lot of the screenshots that are being thrown around look waaaay better in context. Kumasawa's pose, for example, is very brief and works fine with her startled fall.

Going into it, I was worried about the pacing since a number of people were commenting about it, but it actually seemed alright to me. I also like where the episode ended, because it says a lot about what they can do during the next one.

I think the only thing that was missing was the anger involved with exiling Genji, Nanjo, Kumasawa and Maria. Speaking of Maria, I'm very satisfied with her creepy singing, and the whole phone call was reminiscent of Shion on the phone in Higurashi.

On a final note, the way they are portraying a few things in comparison to the VN's version of events is HIGHLY revealing, and is solidifying some theories I have about who the culprit(s) could be. Probably 9/10 overall, unless the subs change something drastically.

Pretty soild episode, but as usually I'm just going to talk about what I didn't like too much

1. system0. A fast and upbeat version is just meh.
2. Maria's face act. I enjoyed last epsiodes', but the ones before the eyecatch for this epsiodes aren't done right. Instead of of "weird" and "kihihi", it was just as if she is plain crazy...but in a cartoon-ish way (and she's not supposed to be). Ones after the eyecatch are better.
3. Saba Can. I don't know if it's just coincidence, but what's the point with Natsuhi with that can? I know the can is important so she knows the letter appeared, but "mackerel" jokes belongs to Kumasawa...
4. Asthma (actually I'm not sure if that's the case). Last epsiode they took it out, so they put it back in this epsiode for Jessica. Jessica coughs non-stop when she and Nanjo comes back after treating Kanon. However, it's damn weird that only Nanjo went to help her, and no one tried to get her her medication. Maybe it's not asthma after all.

But other than that, it's an alright epsiode.

They put in the part where Battler punches Maria on the head.
I can now die happy.
