From EP3 - first chapters

いつもなら賑やかに迎えてくれるはずのうみねこの鳴き声が、まったく聞こえなかった
The bustling cries of the seagulls, which would usually come to meet them, was not heard at all.

Well I don't know what to think than. It is a bit controversial again, as they can be heard quite loudly by the docks.

Spoiler for clarification:

You know, you might be on to something there. I never really paid much attention to the ME sound files.

The line ace mentioned is the very last one in chapter 1, which shows up only a few lines after the seagull sound effect stops. Also, the time the sound effect stops is the very instant Eva steps onto Rokkenjima.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is the only time the seagull ME ever plays during the two day period from October 4-5.

So maybe there were still seagulls around the island, but not on it?

In all honesty I don't know how to make heads and tails out of that. You guys are right that line was indeed there, I've probably skimmed over that line at first as I was pondering why the seagulls stopped and why they could be heard up to that point.

No, the story is described there from a neutral third viewpoint (ergo an ethereal spectator, or possibly Meta-Battler's, or if we can believe my aforementioned "theory", the "meta-player's" perspective), and it remains like that even when we read the above line ("The lively cries of the seagulls, which usually greeted them when they arrived, couldn't be heard at all" in the patched version). Despite that contraversially the seagulls greeted them by whineing loudly the entire time just before she put her foot on the island 5 lines earlier.
Spoiler for "I've given some additional thoughts. Don't take it at face value, It includes some really far-fetched, mind-numbing, improbable theories.:

Well I tend to believe that's just because for a dramatizing effect with no real consequence or cause (I mean they still crying but the game chooses not to show it), and the appearance/disappearance of said characters (or Eva's prophecy) have no parallelism with the seagulls' actions.

Spoiler for again far-fetched theories in case I'm wrong:

Well I apologize, I did warned everyone it's an insignificant "issue" . But I've found it kinda contradictional itself inside such a short interval, plus I don't really grasp why are they behaving totally differently comparing it to ep1.

It's just Eva's focus that was shifted because of her childhood voice... whatever... use your imagination ...
Or will you deduce that they were used as ingredients for the siestas?

Well no, I wouldn't go that far . Well I'm gonna wait and see, I hope they deliberately made it that way (ergo not a mistake on their part), and probably they gonna show us later in the answerarks the reason behind it.

I wonder if they'll make a modification to the title slightly. They did that with the answer arcs for Higurashi (Higurashi KAI)

OK I don't understand something again . It involves Ange too, so I reckon that's the appropriate thread to ask it.
