Um...I don't know if this is exactly the right thread.... ^^"

I'm too lazy to read the whole way through, so...I'm probably wrong. I don't know. D=

The only thing I have to say is...
Spoiler for for end scene of ep5?:

You aren't really supposed to understand yet. Wait for the later episodes, and it should start to make sense.

going by the strict meaning of the word plausible, it is a plausible theory, like saying that kanon is a girl is also a plausible theory.

i Know righttt. Kanon has to be a girl >.<! IT would all make sense. He could dress up like beatricee! And then say "wot wot, i thought you were all with maria".

He could also fake his/her death by getting the doctor in on everything too.


I'm telling you...it's the butlers!!

if I learned somethign from detective novels is that doctors can easily become accomplices, even if unwillingly.

Jessica could have been either misled by the doctor , or part of the conspiracy.

I was wondering when someone would say that it must be Genji because the culprit is always the butler. However in this case you could say that the culprit is always the Battler XD

The events do not have to be caused by Beatrice. It's only the "belief" that Beatrice caused the events that solidifes her existence.


There's no mystery in saying that it's done by a witch. No fun for me. So I choose to believe in a human cause.
Isn't that like Freddy Kreuger? And speaking of slasher flicks, I feel that this has kind of felt like one up until now. I like the tea party idea and the massive exposition that it provides. It gives the characters and the viewer a chance to reflect on what has happened and what is possibly yet to come.

Spoiler for Beatrice and Higurashi:

Easy, she, without much medical background, can only sit back and watch and pray/cry. Then, having had the doctor in on the whole conspiracy, he can just "pretend to try", and then look down and shake his head, and she'll just breakout in tears, and all he has to do is hold her back and just be like "oh poor sweetheart, i'm sorry there's nothing i can do".



Though i was more or so joking when i said it was "the butlers". As someone pointed out, it's "always the butlers" ;P.


And lol @ the "it's the battler" haha...would be a very weird twist

This was the episode that finally grabbed my attention. Through the first 4 epidsodes I kept thinking this show wasnt as good as Higurashi and it seemed to fall from my expectations, (paticularly in the character department) Finally Beatrice has shown up and Battler has a reason for existance other then rambling like an idiot. Im now really looking forward to the next ark. Hopefully we will get more Berkensteel
