Spoiler for Picture:

If I got any freetime on my hand, I might think of translating the interview with Ryűkishi in it...if nobody else has done so by now. He answers some really important questions and...I like his general stance towards Umineko as a means of expression.

And nice to know that he only told Ohara Sayaka about the truth behind Beatrice. That explains why her performance fit so well.
MYGOD
Erika should be just like that on a anime. She is so perfect there *-*
And i want the translations too. Can you scan the interview so someone can translate? ^^

I believe that hagurama posted a link with a translation of the interview on the previous page.

And I agree that that is a lovely picture of Erika.

T_T I want that Lucifer but its a garage kit isn't it..? Oh well...
As for a Beato figure, the dollfie of her is probably going to be the best we're going to get, the dress seems to be a little much for material, of course I just bought Tenshi from Angel Beats with full wings so wtf do I know

Hrm, I thought you could make US purchases from there. You mean you can see the individual item pages but when you try to check out it bombs? That's odd. I'm from the US and went through the process to make an order and got up to the payment selection part with no problems. o_0

AmiAmi allows purchasing from the US; I've purchased stuff there myself. It's just a technical problem; the site is kinda buggy. Although, if you do want to buy it from somewhere else, there's:

Paletweb:
http://www.paletweb.com/selectpage.asp?code=0003381
http://www.paletweb.com/selectpage.asp?code=80003666 (sold out now, but if you request it they should restock it)

There's also a legal download version for overseas offered in partnership of Witch Hunt and HobiBox, which has both 1-4 and 1-8: http://secure.hobibox.net/umineko/catalog.php

That'd probably be the most convenient thing, since there's no shipping time or cost.

Thanks for the paletweb links, I may get it from there.
also the reason why I wasn't interested in that
http://secure.hobibox.net/umineko/catalog.php
one is because that's just a digital download, and lets say that website goes down for if i need to dl it like 10 years from now.
An official DVD version seems more reliable than an installation which you download online in my opinion.

Actually, a DRM-free digital download will last much longer. DVDs will naturally deteriorate over long periods of time. It's hard to get an exact estimate, but the closest I've gotten from a semi-official source is 20-100 years for DVD-ROMS from the Council on Library Resources (1). Nobody knows for sure, of course, since no DVD has even existed for that long, and "accelerated aging" tests are just a test.

With a DRM-free digital file though, you can back it up on multiple hard-drives, getting new ones when older ones fail. If you're smart about it, you can keep a digital file for infinity this way. I have my Hobibox download of Episode 5-8 on my computer, on my external back-up drive, and on an external hard drive at my brother's apartment (in case there's a fire at my house); it'll definitely be lasting longer than 10 years.

True You have a point there.
and + the digital download is much cheaper in comparison.
I have a DVD burner and blank DVDs as well so I may just burn the Digital DL Installer as well as the translation patches from Witch-Hunt on the same DVD.

Anyways, thanks for talking me out of purchasing the official DVD version ^.^

Well, on the other hand, the boxes are pretty sweet...especially the cover art (I have the physical versions of 1-4 and 5-8, and the purchased digital version of 7).

Oh now you are just trying to confuse me... lol.
What I'll do is get the Digital DL, then burn the installer onto the DVD for the Eps 1-4, and then I'll design my own cover for the DVD ^.^

Arts one of my strong points as you can see from my avatar which I drew and animated myself.
It says ElderKain in Japanese in the Umineko text style ^.^

if you can wait it out and don't mind paying shipping, buy the physical copies.

you can always rip the discs or make copies onto hard drives and blank discs, and it's not illegal as long as you own your original and legal copy.

i have to ask about taobao...

is it really easy to come across fakes over there?

especially on cd/disc related content.

i ask because it's too good/cheap to be true... most of the items are hella cheaper than their retail prices

Most things are actually legit. It's cheaper in general because Yuan is weaker than the US dollar, making it look cheaper for us when it's probably kind of costly over there still? And the catch is that you have to use a shopping service and pay for shipping by weight, since you don't live there..

Didn't know where to post, so I'm posting here:

Spoiler for Fuyucomi releases:


It seems that two short stories are being released this winter comiket - 「我らの告白」and「天使17歳 東シ-44a」, but I can't figure out what does 東シ-44a mean/refer to. Does anyone know?

Is it okay if I giggle a little out of joy?
Well, Umineko Hane should be the semi-officially announced 2nd TIPs collection I think, though of course I hope for something more. But especially Warera no kokuhaku (Our confession) could turn out what we were waiting for...especially because Clair spoke of her/themself as Warera.
The second pamphlet could turn out as a comedy sidestory...especially because if I remember correctly East 44a is the place where the 07th Expansion booth is located at Comiket.

Yeah, was thinking the same thing. I was so hyped when I read that first title
So, that 東シ-44a is a Comiket booth number? Good to know, thanks for the explanation! (out of curiosity, what does that シ stand for?)

I actually hope those side stories will be released outside of comiket too. You know, online shops bonuses and the like. I really want to know what's inside kokuhaku.
