I did indeed; however, as that Agatha Christie novel is not the only place I've heard of/seen this sort of plot before, I didn't consider it that big of a deal.

...In fact, the Haruhi Suzumiya books/anime do a pretty good job of explaining why those sort of mystery stories take place in such places (that is, things like islands lacking direct contact with the mainland, etc.) in a specific chapter (aptly titled "Lone Island Syndrome").

So any word on how much of the games the anime is adapting? Is it just episode 1, or including 2 and 3 as well?

Aah, I'm excited!
About time this'd happen <3

Though, I think they may have the first 4 question arcs (even though only two are out so far) in the anime. I think that could work.

How could it possibly work? You can't adapt something that doesn't exist yet.

Well, the fourth game would be out next Comiket(well, the one after the coming one xD) wouldnt it?
So I was wondering if they could maybe start the anime after it's out, but that may be too late. Who knows.

No chance. They have to know the content they're including in the anime when planning it out at the beginning of the process. They said they'd start this summer, and episode 3 will be out next month, so it's possible that 3 could be in the anime, but I'm not going to assume it will be. 4 is a definite no-no.

Can't say I mind either way, we'll inevitably get multiple seasons for as long as it takes to cover all the chapters anyway, so as long as they do a good job I'll be happy.

Doesn't that rather assume that the basic plots to each arc aren't written up long in advance of them being released? I mean I don't know how Umineko's production processes work but I figure a first draft of the script would be one of the first things that gets done, and if the producers of the anime can get the co-operation of 07th Expansion then there's no reason they shouldn't be able to get an idea of what happens.

Of course, depending on when they're aiming to get the anime released it might create issues, as I doubt they'd want an animated version of the 4th arc out before the actual release of the game.

Thats certainly. So how does it work out? if we estimate, should the game come out before the 4th arc? well that is.. wait.. does anyone know if its supposed to be a 13-14 episode season? or a 24-26 episode season? if so.. what are the chances that the game will come out before?.. if it does, even if the game isnt out yet, as long as they follow the story closely, there shouldnt be any reason they cant animate it.. then again, the game release shouldnt coincide with the 4th arc being animated.. there would be some time in between.. hmm looks like the chances are low.

There isn't any confirmation for any specific amount of "arcs" for Umineko. In fact, it is even possible that we will have either extra content, or different things to build up few elements while the game is in progress. That is said there is high chance that we will have a faithful adaptation. That would be like the first 4 arcs in higurashi for the first season.

Personally, i would assume they will only start the premise with a 12-13 episodes season.

Considering what the games offer up to the second episode, there isn't any connections, except some cameo and references. Being in the same universe or not, they are completely unrelated (pretty much like Tsukihime and Fate/Stay Night).

The 2009 mention is absolutely not related to the anime release date. There isn't any confirmation for the moment.

In a recent fan meet up Ryukishi07 said he was planning 4 question arcs and 3 or 4 answer arcs
