All right, rethinking it; Maria can't be the culprit because George says in purple she can't kill anyone. So she's ruled out (well, as if it wasn't obvious...). Which makes it true George can kill children... but I suppose emphasis is on the "can".

I try not to take what 4chan says as true, but well... I'm worried.
So far... not really. None of the previewers appear to have finished though, so of course we can't say it's ended without answers or anything.

We've got several puzzles to lead us to the answer. The choices tend to be the rather obvious ones, apparently. There's also purple text, which is yet another puzzle, but it doesn't seem hard either.

Or maybe that they're both being truthful and there's somebody else on the island that's lying. The purple text apparently extends to everyone.

The fact that we get choices means that we don't get straight out answers, but the complete information required to get them ourselves. That IMO is precisely how the mystery should end.

We know Maria is truthful because she isn't the culprit. George can't be the culprit because the culprit apparently kills *everyone* by himself, and Maria says he can't kill adults. Therefore George is ruled out. GOOD NEWS! Suck it, George-culprit-conspiracy-theorist-guys.

Not really, he's simply not handing Ange the truth on a silver tray, and he's having her reach the truth on her own.

So has the story prepared by Battler finished, which has been rejected by Ange as covering -up the truth?

Ange is now playing detective game with Bern? By making a wrong choice, Bern can drag Ange into the Bad End?

And everyone is probably overreacting as to just how much flourish he's putting on that. Plus it seems like most of the assholery is coming from everyone and their witch-form grandmother having something to say about all of it.

"George can kill children" you don't get it do you?

To borrow someone else's words. "George's purple would simply mean he kills Maria and the cousins then BOMB. Which is foreshadowed with only Maria jaw being found. In other words you were all trolled from the beginning."

The Bomb counts as killing everyone else with your own hand because let's face it it's canon.

Some of the screenshots with Windows 2000 borders seem to be fake as well.

It would be hard to convince me the cousins are children, but you can interpret it like that... however, since when is activating a bomb to kill people, considered not killing them?

I would avoid making a rush to judgment without all of the purple gathered, sourced, and translated. Otherwise you might be missing some incredibly obvious series of interlocking statements that rule out half the cast.

Besides, we've had reds saying "[Adult] was killed" for ages now. This means people had to be *killed* somehow. And the end of EP4 could be seen as evidence, too.

Of course, I'm not giving this any serious thought. Going with the flow. It would be fun to start our own batshit logic duels.

Actually, I completely understand this episode progression already. The parallel episodes thing holds absolutely true:
  • Heavy meta-world emphasis.
  • Ange emphasis, some actual information.
  • Slow buildup and a sudden breakdown into utter insanity with meta-characters popping up all over.
  • Ange attempts to process the information she's given.
  • Some sort of confrontation with the facts.
  • Ange reaches catharsis with her past by understanding something important independent of the plain facts.
Thus far everything I've heard about ep8 pretty much follows this (ep4's progression) exactly, though we'll see how it actually ends.
