Yes, it's Stephen Paul. He does a wonderful job. The epitaph for example is nearly the same as WH. Though Twilight has been changed into "Night". The Epitaph is as solvable with Yen version as with the WH one.

It is not the ending.
The EP7 and (especially) EP8 manga is considerably longer than the other ones. We are currently up to 29 chapters (25 chapters + 4 bonus chapters) released for EP8, with this chapter (24) also to be included in the 4th volume of the manga going to be released in August 2014.

If you have read the VN you should know that this scene (in considerably less detail) also featured there and Ange "killed" herself there as well. If you remember that portion you should also know what plot is going to be featured next (and it has got a lot more details to it).

Excerpts of them can be found on this blog, though they are never the complete chapters (and sometimes crucial contents are missing). I also provided some text-translations for three of the bonus chapters and chapter 25 in the spoilers thread.

Since manga-scanning has begun to be pursued a lot harder in recent months, people have stopped uploading in such quantities, and of course magazines with only a small reading public outside Japan (like GANGAN Joker) get tossed off the wagon. It's probably good to do something against illegal scan uploading...I just wish magazines would start to release digital versions of their monthly magazines.

The translations are these here:
The bonus chapters (though missing Interlude: Hachijo Ikuko at the moment) are here, here, and here, and this is Chapter 25, which is the most current chapter until June 21st.

Sorry to sidetrack, but I have a quick question.

I'm looking to get a hard copy of Umineko, because I'd rather not rely on youtube and manga scanlations, in the event I lose my internet connection.

For personal preference, which version of Umineko do you guys like better? The VN or the Manga, and why do you prefer that version?

I'd have to say, the VN, definitely the VN. Though the manga is a very good, almost meticulous adaptation, it lacks one thing: the epic soundtrack, which is, clearly, one of the main reasons to love Umineko.

The only problem with the VN is the very obvious incompleteness of EP8, as well as some additions made to the manga in terms of clarified elements (like the added Red in EP3 for example).

If anything I'd say, read the manga while listening to the soundtrack

I'll say the VN for the first 4 episodes and the manga for Chiru.
The VN is undoubtely more rich in details. The manga isn't bad though, it keeps most of it and even adds some extra hints but well, for me the culprit's reasons are better hinted in the VN's first 4 episodes. Things start turning with Chiru where the manga expresses much better the characters' feelings adding deep to their portrait (even Erika's character was better explained in Ep 5 manga version than in Ep 5 VN version) while the VN starts progressively losing quality until it reaches that mess that's Ep 8.

I have most of the OST on my phone so If I had the manga that's not much of a loss (apart from the ps3 voice patch anyways)

Thanks, unfortunately though, Chiru isn't available as a hard copy ( and wont be for quite a while )

The manga is a very good adaptation, but I'd say the VN overall is vastly superior, except for episode 8. It's not that the ep 8 VN is bad - I found it lots of fun - but it's as Haguruma said: it's obviously incomplete. The manga fills in all the gaps.

As for versions of the VN, my preference is very much for the original. The ported version with new graphics is pretty and all, but Ryukishi does the best expressions.

Personally, I think it would be a big loss. The VN has carefully placed songs. Just listening to the soundtrack on its own can't be a substitute for that.

I'll agree to that. It's fun watching everything on Youtube.
