A human dissapearing is pretty normal, a human appearing is not.

Ahhh I'm reminded of why Higurashi is so great again.

So to be able to commune with Hanyu, Rika needs her identity as the "reincarnation of Oyashiro-sama". And for her to get that, her mother must DIE! mwahaha.

Can't Rika just live normally in the new world though? Her mother would probably die first due to aging, then Rika would have the powers back and then redo the world where she was splatted by a truck. She could live another two lives, and there's no need to murder anyone.

Then again, that would be too boring... XD

Unfortunately, that's not an option. You will see why in the next episode.

WinD have released ]a fansub of this episode. I'd suggest watching it, as ASR​_Kurou completely misinterpreted what was being said in a number of scenes.

Bern has a pivotal role in Umineko, so there's no chance that they'll remove her.

To conserve her power perhaps.

Like it was mentioned in this episode, Hanyuu's power can't reach the sinless world so Rika's dead for good if she dies there.

Not everyone's so fortunate to have a reset button at work...

I dunno if having a reset button makes Rika THAT fortunate.

It isn't a perfect world...just a sinless one. One where none of the bad things happened. As one might guess, Rika sees it as less than perfect.

Another interesting aspect of this theory about the author's view on relationships is that it might explain why he never explored any of them further than as a plot device to trigger the events of the Watanagashi/Meakishi arcs: He doesn't really believe in love, it's just another way to fill a void. Pretty cynical stuff.

Except that 'love' is a rather strong undertone to a lot of the answer arcs. Well, friendship, and then love. The romance isn't furthur explored than it already is because that would deter from the main purpose of the plot, and the story he is trying to tell. At least, that is my opinion on the matter.

What I mean is that he cuts the epilogue short of including things like Satoshi waking up or Keiichi revealing that Shion told him about Mion loving him. Apparently he's said he wanted to leave what happens after to be left to the imagination but since then he's done some post-epilogues (This and the one comic that just ended which I don't know much about.) to the main story which seem to consciously avoid this topic. I can't read the guy's mind though, so this also is just speculation on why he wrote things the way he did. This story in particular however paints the author as being highly cynical of his fellow man, it's not a a huge stretch to extend that to him not believing in romantic love. If everything's to chance, there's no such thing as a soul mate.
