Shannon and Kanon are behind them with their submissive faces. I'm just worried about why Jessica and George have their evil faces on the cover...
heh? Maybe I'm just completely biased, but that looks like Shannon's "I'm kind of pissed off" face - she has one that looks a little angrier where her mouth opens slightly, but the eye expression is generally the same.
Perhaps the George-Shannon theories AND the Jessica theory are right?

Now that you mention it...I have to agree. Looking at Shannon and even Kanon's face, it isn't their default content or even emotionless faces, but rather faces of slight irritation or perhaps determination. In any case, they don't appear to be innocent victims in this case, and George and Jessica are almost certainly up to something.

edit: Does anyone know if this is the first cover without Battler?

Exactly what I'm thinking. Maybe George and Jessica plan something, not necessarily the murders, and have Kanon and Shannon go along with them, but the latter two know something's going to go wrong or whatever. I don't know //made it up off top of her head

Probably coincidential but I was looking at http://hidebu.wikiwiki.jp/ translated with Google Translate, and saw a number of mentions of mackerel.

Tomitake sink, sink Times, is that Jiro Tomitake sink mackerel (camera survival) is to shed the extra attack when the Oyashiro.
富竹流し、時報流し、鯖流しというのは富竹ジロウ(サバイバルカメラ)のオヤシロ時エキストラアタックで流 すことです

逆に言えば、敵が鎌・霊の組み合わせで自チームがバット・鯖ならば、自分達の方から攻めて行かなければなら ないことになる。 Conversely, if your team is at bat mackerel combination of sickle spiritual enemy, will have to go to attack from their own people.

斧・腕・鯖・空手のようなタフな近距離型を使う人、これらのキャラと組む人は、以上の事を意識 しよう。 Karate people use mackerel-type short-range arms ax as tough, people partner with these characters, or to sense things.

Is it using the same kanji for "mackerel" that Kumasawa uses?

I'm not sure if my translation is correct but here my try:

Please correct the mistakes I made and I'll edit the post.

So it doesn't look like Battler is getting any new sprites? Bah... was looking forward to seeing him actually looking like a "witch"... xD

What if they're helping Battler revive Beatrice? I mean Beatrice looks all surprised and they're standing around her defensively, and they didn't get very good treatment in the last game, so who knows? Maybe Battler asked them to help. (but geez, all of them in the metaworld? That'd get pretty interesting )

Hmm, wtf is Juuza doing there? It sounds kind of like some sort of alternate 1998 (possibly with at least Battler surviving?). But...why would he know Ange in that context? Or maybe it's an alternate metaworld? Hrmm...puzzling to say the least

EDIT: Okay, with the corrected TL, the Battler surviving thing no longer makes sense. So yeah, looks like we randomly get another 1998.

Spoiler for more major EP 5 spoilers, tagged just in case:

I'm especially curious about this one o_o New Meta-World character, maybe? Or is Battler having an identity crisis now? I mean, he doesn't know who's kid he is, and from the screenshots his personality took a turn.

Pretty sure the first part's meant to be "...Hey, Amakusa."

You're right. I couldn't figure that Kanji out. Corrected.

Is that hinting at Juuza NOT being too late to save Ange, and she just lost her memory, technically "Killing" Ushiromiya Ange?

I'd have liked Battler getting new sprites with the cape, and perhaps that black outfit.

It doesn't really make sense to me that his portrait is painted with a black cape but he doesn't get one on his sprite. It can't take that long just to add a cape to the back of the sprite... I wonder why Ryukishi didn't just add it in. ^^;
