Didn't see it before, but not sure if it's fake or not. Kinda weird formatting though.

Maybe it's just me, but the font of that screenshot looks different from the normal font used in the game, so grain of salt would end up applying here.

Yeah, it's definitely a little odd. I probably wouldn't have even noticed it had I not seen the off-center text in the little thumbnail.

The font looks the same to me. I noticed something different about it, but then realized that it was the missing the black font shadow, which makes sense since it's on an all black background.

No, that's definitely the same font. What's strange is the way the text is placed, although now that I think about it there have been several similar scenes in the past.

EDIT: Though frankly, I'm baffled as to why only this site would have this particular screenshot, if it's real.

Something comes to my mind:

In EP1 and EP3, Jessica was the one who imposed Beatrice to deliver the letters and umbrella to Maria, she was told by her friend Shannon that the letter was to tell the whole family to solve the epitaph, she did want the family to unite so she did it. She heard from Shannon that it was Golden witch Beatrice who told Shannon to urge Jessica to do so, of course Jessica thought Shannon was telling a joke but she accepted it. She had not think about where the seal came from (or she thought it was a trick from Kinzo), nor did she anticipate the killing.

Then, in both EP1 and EP3, Shannon was supposedly killed. So the link was cut and Jessica had no one to ask who was Beatrice but Maria.

In EP2, the one who imposed as suit-Beatrice was Shannon. Because Beatrice wanted Shannon to put a "candy-restoration" trick in front of Rosa as she had taught Shannon similar trick before, however, Beatrice knew that Jessica could not learn at such a short period of time and probably she could not deceive Rosa. So she picked Shannon in EP4.

In EP4, Beatrice herself delivered the umbrella because she had to persuade Maria to say it was Kinzo who delivered the letter in person. Why? Because she had colluded with Krauss in that episode and the siblings knowing that Maria receiving the umbrella from Kinzo would put the siblings in disarrary, thus enabling Krauss to have more time to prepare for the coming murders.


There was a strong hint from the manga that in EP1 Jessica said to Maria that "don't get cold, it was important for girls", which Beatrice also said when she delivered the umbrella and letter to Maria. To some people, it was a hint that Jessica was the real Beatrice, but to me it was a hint that she delivered the letter to Maria in EP1 and 3.

Also, one can see that Beatrice wore the same gown in EP1 and EP3, I thought it meant the one who imposed as Beatrice in EP1, 3 were the same person, but different from EP2. In EP4, there was no such a scene at all.

BTW,


It seems that Gaap, if she had a human representation in the real world, then she should be............Nanjo.


They both had no family symbol on their clothes.

Gaap said she was a visitor and close friend with Goldsmith, Nanjo was the only visitor and close friend with Kinzo.

Gaap usually talked with Virgilia, Nanjo talked with Kumasawa on phone in EP4.

Genji=Ronove, Kumasawa=Virgilia, Nanjo=Gaap, Kinzo=Goldsmith. So matched.

Now only Gohda didn't have a fantasy representation (Shannon and Kanon were magical representation themselves. Genji's knifethrowing is still possible in the real world, but "light saber and AT field"??), maybe we will see one in EP6??

Finally...
Spoiler for A picture which not many people want to see:

I read theories linking Gohda to goats or one of the goats.

Ah, the things that cannot be unseen. I'm sure to have nightmares now.

I would put Nanjo at the top of my list of things I would not forgive Ryukishi for in episode 6 if they happen:

Hasn't 3 already been done once? I doubt Ryukishi gonna pull the same trick again. I agree with 2 and 4 though, they're nightmare fuel as far as i'm concerned.

I always thought that Goat-kun and Virgilia during the escape scene were supposed to be Kumasawa and Gohda.

Poor Goat-kun...

So Gohda had a sister and decided to propose to his love-interest after this family conference. XD

w8.... Gaap=Nanjo 0.0 *drops death*
You got to be kidding 0.0 doesnt the Magic version is like the same sex? 0.0
I had a weird feeling that Gaap=Natushi because Natushi doesnt have the symbol and wishes to be close with Kinzo, or at least accepted 0.0

Does there have to be a magical representation for Gohda? I dont think it would make much sense since he only recently started working there and was hired by Krauss and Natsuhi instead of Kinzo. Whereas the other four servants have been working there the whole time

I personally have no experience with AmiAmi, other than that I was planning to use it to pre-order the Jessica SD figure that comes out in May sometime in the next few months . Their shipping information is a bit vague (you'd probably have to actually place an order to see how much it'd cost) but I have heard good things about them, at least from the figure side of things. So I'll bet they're pretty reliable with CDs and the like too.

As far as other places to pre-order, all the other places I can think of probably won't be stocking the game until it actually comes out :/. So if you don't want to go AmiAmi you're probably out of luck .

I also realize that the link I posted before isn't the English version of the site, so here's a link for that: http://www.amiami.com/shop/?set=engl...e_display.html

Have we ever actually seen the goats kill anyone, even in a magic scene? I don't think it's happened except by implication. The end of ep2 throws a lot of things into confusion (Bernkastel being there with a goat-head mask, etc.); the part where the actual goat servants are chasing Maria and Rosa cuts off early.

So the goats don't really have to represent anyone because as far as I can tell they never actually do anything that has a tangible effect.

I think along that line, too.
Considering that at the end of Episode 2, during the witch's banquet, the doors to the golden land were supposed to be in the process of opening...so Battlers death is rather fuzzy and yeah the goats killing Kinzo is ridiculous in itself at that point.
So maybe they really are just 'decoration' showing how the real culprit is more powerful than his opponents.
The same would go for the stakes...as I think nobody assumes that there are really 7 individual staker girls around the island, but they are rather only a representation of their individual sins.

The goats have killed somebody under the order of their masters. This shown at the banquet to opening the Golden Land where the goats ate Ushiromiya Battler and Ushiromiya Kinzo and where they eat Ushiromiya Rosa and her daughter, Maria. Also, the goats are individual as shown by the battle between Goat- kun and Ushiromiya Krauss.

The goats at the party are suggested to be masked partygoers, not the actual goat servants (although there are some of those). We know something is amiss anyway as Kinzo is not alive to be eaten. Rosa and Maria are merely consumed by implication; we can't find any real substantive proof it happens.

The goats also never kill anyone directly whom they are ordered to attack before the end of the game. The only goat to engage in any sort of struggle is the one that gets Krauss-countered, and the few Kanon fights in ep2. And there is absolutely nothing to prove that either event even happened (at least with Jessica and George's fights in ep4 we have the wounds allegedly suffered by the two).
