White magic is a willpower that which for happiness, be it for him/herself or for others. Black magic is the reverse, a willpower that which for others' destruction to heal the scar insider their own.

It's more mental than physical for me when I hear the word magic. To deny witch then more likely means to deny the will or believe of the witch.

And both have been shown to be nothing more than delusion by the person using it...

If we're going to be seeing Beato's past, do you think the long haired Beato is a younger beato?

Possibly. Like how Eva's younger version had her hair down, almost to symbolize youth, while 1986 Eva had her hair tied up.

She's that eye in Watanagashi

I believe she's in the credit rolls in all the Umi games as Staff Cook.
At least I remember seeing in in the EP 04 credit roll as least ^^;

The new op is giving me a Higurashi Miotsukushi-hen vibe with the "hopeful" feeling that it has. Is it by the same singer?

I hardly recognize Itou Kanako's voice here, but the style is definitely the same (some tone and especially those latino vibes).

What what? Who is she? :S

Also I'm watching Ep I-II right now, and I noticed that Nanjo doesnt have an alibi for the umbrellas since Kinzo is dead. I guess he's a reall convincing cross-dresser? xD

To the left of Gaap, that shadowing figure that's covering part of the screen. (entirely on the left)

Judging by the Op it seems that this will be the "answer" to Ep1,
looking for how they focus in Natsuhi from above the others
and her silhouette showing up in Kinzo's room.

And for Rikatrice?
It looks to me more like a Lambdakastel using Maria's Rose like a vessel.

Something I noticed in the OP - near the ending there seems to be something forming behind the silhouette of the new girl.

I finally figured out who the upside down black figure was in the Episode 4 OP:

Spoiler for As represented in the new OP at 0:46:


Edit: Is Battler having a duel with Bern around 1:13?

Edit 2:

Spoiler for Episode 1 theory:

I'm not sure how much their shipping costs in other areas, but they charge $5 by Air Mail and $9 by EMS for shipping to Asia areas.

Another random thought: What if the new girl isn't the accuser, but rather the one being accused of being the culprit by somebody who is not shown in the frame (Battler, maybe)?

So this will start the basic "What you thought you know is wrong" set of Episodes?

If they are even remotely like Higurashi, we are going to have a whole lot more questions than answers by the end of this one. While it may solve Episode 1, it will also give us larger questions as to the nature of the problem and how, or even if this effects the other three question arcs.

Plus now all the demons are involved somehow where as Episode 1 I suppose we knew nothing about the demons with only a tiny bit of Meta involved.

Is this turning the chessboard over, or making it a new game entirely?
