Ah, yes. That was probably a bit too train-of-thought. I'll explain.

Redaction of the Golden Witch - Part 5

The narrative spirals out of control, seemingly on the whim of its eccentric Reader. But even as forces outside the story appear poised to destroy it, forces within fight to reassert control. Witches and humans alike take their future into their own hands to seek a resolution that makes sense. What makes sense to one may not make sense to the others, however... the bloodshed will not end at the guesthouse.

In the meta-world, Battler struggles to navigate multiple truths. If Andromalius's influences poison the story, is there any hope that they can be endured, or does this once-discredited Forgery deserve to die a slow, painful death? Will Battler's curiosity die with it, strangled by a demon's refusals? He's not known to give up easily... and with nothing to lose in this tale, Andromalius may yet regret toying with the Endless Sorcerer.

A lingering demise will not suffice for Walter Absalom. The mask of the editor as a patient academic begins to slip as injustices mount. He seeks to name the witch and battle her face-to-face. Can you name her first... and are you as confident as he is that you can successfully confront her?

The next playlist, in six parts.

Oh and obviously this will not be the final part (of the "main story;" there were always going to be Tea Party-esque segments to follow). Part 5 is now Parts 5 and 6. 6 is definitely the end though.

Halfway through part 5. I'm definitely feeling my lack of 80s pop culture knowledge. I can sometimes tell that a song is being referenced, but I know I'm missing a lot of subtext...

I don't think any of it is necessary. Some of it is just for fun (one or two are just real groaner jokes if you catch them), and as I said only certain characters do it. Most scenes have little to none of that... I say, but then one of the editors catches the most blatant one in a scene that otherwise didn't really have any.

Redaction of the Golden Witch - Extra TIP

It's not easy being seventy-second. But for Andromalius, the things that trouble him most are not questions of the present, but the distant (and somewhat more recent) past. A being of contradictory thoughts and seemingly contradictory actions, he does his best to sort out who he is and what he really ought to be doing. It is difficult to love when everything you do comes through a lens of hatred and pain. Yet he feels as if he is driven to try.

As a participant in a seemingly heartless tale, how can he explain his conduct? Who is he and why has he come to the garden of the Endless Witch? How can he claim that his roiling blood allows him to know love at all?

It's a hard thing to justify to himself, let alone others. But he'll certainly talk for those willing to listen. Whether you trust anything a demon says is your business.

This is an extra and not meant to be part of the main story. It's strictly here for thematic reinforcement, flavor, and character development. I do not recommend scouring it for clues, as that wasn't the intent behind it. It does provide one really blatant answer, but that answer has only been slightly less blatant within the main tale and so it isn't especially needed. Long-time followers might remember chunks of this chapter existing in the original draft.

Redaction of the Golden Witch - Part 6

At long last, the 1986 narrative closes, but not without some bumps in the road along the way. The Fragment raises difficult questions not only for Battler, but for his erratic Reader, who seems to believe that Battler has an answer for him. Andromalius is intellectually manipulative, but he seems less adept at emotional appeals, and Battler is well aware of that.

But do any of those questions matter? Walter Absalom, fresh from unmasking his witch, is far too preoccupied with explaining away any lingering details. Perhaps viewing the Forgery was a waste of time after all; he has taken care of all the necessary research, and anyone who has written that many words must know what he's talking about.

Still, why take his word alone? In 1996, investigators arrive on the cursed island to survey a new incident... although not without obstacles of their own to deal with. What can be learned from this event? What is the appropriate response to it? What serves justice more: the mystery or the truth? Review the details for yourself and decide.

The "final" playlist, in six parts. Naturally, this is the end of the story only in the sense that the pre-Tea Party bits are the end of any Umineko story.

In addition, I've prepared a "questions" video as I said I would, basically serving as a guide to thinking about things while I slack off work diligently on the Tea Parties. You can find that here, or linked via annotation from the last part of Part 6. Don't view it before finishing Part 6.

I'm so impressed by Redaction and really curious about it now. There's just a lot to it...will need some time and probably a lot of help to figure things out.

And about the questions video...holy shit, should we really be questioning all of those things? Okay then.

Spoiler for a train of thought:

I don't mind tossing around some info on the name stuff mainly because it'd be nice to get people actually using the character's name at some point. It was just meant to be a little puzzler, but the significance of the name itself is not that important... except that it will finally put me on the same page as naming the person as everyone else.

Well, that dream sequence confused the hell out of me. I'm thinking to re-read everything, armed with the knowledge bombs that have just been dropped.
