I often wondered about something that has been overlooked.

There is this idea that Kinzo was the only survivor of the Ushiromiya family. This is not true... or at least it is not true that he was the only survivor after the great Kanto earthquake. That is what happened to the Main family but Kinzo's branch wasn't the only one that survived.
It is said that Kinzo was "chosen" specifically because of his polydactility. You can't really "choose" when you only have one choice.

So well... what happened to all the other Ushiromiya? Did they all die for some unknown reasons? And if they didn't, why didn't they try to get a share of the inheritance?

Here's Ep5 portrait. I'm not sure if this is real so can anyone confirm this somehow?

No of course that's fake...wait a second.

...That definitely is from one of the websites that sells Umineko?! It's got a direct link from the 07thExpansion website. Can't say for sure, but it's looking pretty believable.

Ah good, it's When They Cry 4 here.

...But...who is that?!
And is it just me, or is Ronove prowling around in the background...

You are quite the observer...

I've tried enhancing that detail and I've changed the contrast to make it more clear to see



I don't know if that's Ronove, but it does look like a human figure.

Spoiler for ep4:


Kinzo's wife's name has never been mentioned. However I don't think she's Asumu nor Kinzo's wife, unless this is another "witch", because the backgorund is the Ushiromiya's mansion, and that mansion didn't exist when Asumu and Kinzo's wife were young.

I doubt that she's a witch though, there's no crest shown. Young Virgilia? Why would there be a necessity to show a young Virgilia? I'm not sold on that.
As for her being Kinzo's wife, I honestly fail to see how her could "impact" on the plot though. Young Asumu could still be a valid option though, or the other person I mentioned in my spoiler. Or maybe just a new character that hasn't even been mentioned yet, afterall it's Ryukishi07 that we're dealing with...

Question widescreen

So I just finished with ep. 1 of the game and I keep on getting irritated because every time I put the game of full screen, it covers the whole monitor (I have a windscreen monitor) and makes the game windscreen... I was wondering if there was a way to fix this... because each time i play it the game looks completely stretched out and all the characters seem to look kinda fat

Umm...don't make the game go fullscreen? I think that's really the only way to solve it :U

Check the driver settings on your graphic card. There's most likely a setting on maintaining the aspect ratio.

In XP it's..

Right click on desktop > Properties > Settings > Advanced > Yourgraphic card's tab

Ah, you mean kinzo's inheritance ? well, it's logical that it would pass to his only daughter, you normally don't get cousins or even brothers of the deceased fighting for the money if said person has children.

"あぁ、カモメカモメカチンカチン、みたいなヤツさ。“”を抜いたらなぁに"

That's the original, but I don't fully understand it. I don't know if it has some meaning, "kachin" seems like an onomatopeia. Anyway if you remove the "ka" you get "momemomechinchin"

"chin" means penis, "mome" I don't know but I can guess...
