Well this absurd...
Spoiler for Episode spoilers:


I'm probably one of the few who likes the censorship, since I'm a wimp...

This episode was enjoyable for me. I was raging about the quality inconsistency last episode, but they kept it together this time. Pacing was fine, the red text was fun, and

I've realized they haven't used a single 'iconic' song yet, unless you count Goldenslaughterer which, well, was slaughtered.

No Dread of the Grave, no emotion (why did everyone sound bored and disinterested for half the episode, and THEN get better at showing emotions when they SHOULDN'T? That's bizarre!)... I can't rate this episode very highly.

Spoiler for Late in episode:


Also they left out the Kanon and Jessica ghost scene, which, while not important, was one of the best scenes in the whole Episode IMO. So much emotion and sets the scene so well for Battler's subsequent reckless argument.

The problem is not that they don't use dread of the grave the problem is that they don't use ANY BGM AT ALL, when battler was arguing with beatrice there was no bgm an they only use -suspicion- in the better part a very generic bgm, personally i think this episode has the WORST bgm direction, a shame because the episode was excellent.

System 0: They runied it, very low and a horrible remix

Sirabe: I like when they use it, but only in one scene =(

The system0 remix was strangely fitting in the previous episode. Too bad it lacked the tension it needed when it was played in episode 4.

Answer is the only iconic one you just listed, IMO. The rest are very good, but not iconic. Basically, when you think of Umineko BGMs, what pops into your mind?

Most people I've asked this to say the zts tracks, Dread of the Grave, Hope and it's various renditions, etc.

Shirabe, System0, and Rougoku are all good, but hardly what I consider iconic. And Answer's scene was not done well at all... nor was the original System0 scene (though it fit very well last episode).

System0 is one of the best Umineko tracks.

(;ω;`) Recently, the sponsors sections have been so normal...

Good and entertaining as usual. With super butlers and D-Swords everyone, I'd like to bring Hayate here... He'd fit too.
Stupid red words... Stop spinning around. Leave that to the strange girls that turn into stakes for some mysterious and most certainly unmagical reason.

Not enough emotion when they found Jessica was dead... Eh, it wasn't a ga-...

I think it would have been stale if it just scrolled around. Well, at least it was just spinning. It was kind awkward at first.. but I guess it'll do.

I take it they censored Nanjo and Kumasawa's deaths like they did with School days?

No. Blood was red. Only thing that got censored was when they showed Kumasawa's wound near the ending.

Anything close-up with gore is censored so far. But luckily, they don't censor blood, the throat cuts, stakes in the head, or whatsoever.
