It IS Gaap XD That's her yandere look. It only appears once though I think, during her fight with George.

1) Maybe it is a shot of the church/chapel on the island?

2) That scene was a flashback to the events of ep 4 (when Ange disappeared from behind Battler)

Hey everyone, I've decided to challenge myself with trying to find a decent theory to explain the happenings in the 4 Episodes so far. Of course, not everything will be conveniently explained or will my theory even be able to explain everything. In fact, I really hope I completely miss the ballpark with this one since that would mean Ryukishi's doing a good job . In any case, I just wanted to get the (rusty) gears in my brain running and come up with something viable.

Spoiler for spoilers for Eps 1-4 everywhere:

Man, even if it's a neat theory, I hope that's wrong, because the "main character is a magical creation" story has been done way too many times.

Yup, forgot to consider the church. Don't remember seeing that particular angle of it in the game.

And yes, I realize it's what happened in Ep.4. I was just pointing out that it was showing the part of Ange's death that wasn't shown (only text+bloodspots) in the game, and whether or not that contained a hint on the murders.

I know this is totally uncalled for, but when watching the episode 5 Op again, I thought of this.

I wonder why they changed the shape in the anime. They didn't change it that much, but it looks like a bird now.

Ooh, so it's Umineko no naku koro ni chiru?

I thought it looked sort of like a cross too at first, but after staring at it, it just looked like goat. O_O

Lyrics for the Episode 5 OP. I've only played through Episode 1 at this point, so I'm not sure if the lyrics are spoilerish or not.

I'm having a bit of a hard time deciding whether I should indulge and read the spoilers as soon as they come out, or wait for the translation patch to come out and play it for myself.

This is the first answer arc, so if I spoil something... I fear that I'll REALLY spoil something huge. Which will take away from my enjoyment while playing...

On the other hand, I really really want to know what happens in the story, really badly. Even if I try to resist reading spoilers, I might become weak and unable to resist temptation.

But maybe if I just try hard not to do that to myself, and instead just focus on the anime... I'll be able to avoid them?

But I'll be so curious as to what awesome music will play in EP5, if they'll remix tracks... and it'll probably be very difficult to stay away from spoilers for me.

Ugh! I don't know what to do, this is going to be so hard. >.<

Personally I'll do my best to avoid spoilers until the patch comes out. I probably won't even buy the game right away though - wondering if I should just wait until after December, when the 2nd answer arc comes out and then just buy the two of them. The wait is a lot smaller after all and I'll be focusing a lot on my entrance exams for college.

There's just one problem with your theory. This certain red text from Eva: Absolutely no factors other than humans participate in this game board.

I'm having the same dilemma ;_; That $18 shipping is harsh. But I guess if I buy something else with Umineko I won't feel as bad. I'm still not completely sure though...

It's possible that it applies to EP3 only, though, given the wording.

Lol, I certainly remember that statement, but taking into account the context and the fact that it is hugely contradictory I chose to simply ignore it. After all, what kind of a witch would Eva-Beatrice be if she says that "absolutely no factors other than HUMANS participated in the game board" while trying to prove that a witch (who is not human) was behind the murders.

Anyhow, to answer your question...I still don't see how the theory violates that statement in red, but I'll clarify. As stated in Proposal 1, my theory is anti-fantasy. Therefore, nothing influences this "game" other than humans. In fact, I'm suggesting that meta-Battler is not even taking part in the game at all. What I mean is that Beato and all the supernatural beings + meta-Battler are part of a child's imagination, they play no role in the murders.

Let's say there are an X amount of game boards each with different scenarios of the incident. However, common sense says that there is only Oct. 4 and one Oct. 5 of the year 1986, that means history records only ONE Rokkenjima Massacre. So, even if Beato uses an X amount of scenarios to convince Battler, it'll never affect the fact that X=1 in the real world. Therefore, we can conclude that no matter what Beato does, supernatural or not, it is completely separate and has absolutely no affect on the real world.

EDIT: and I do hope my theory's wrong...that would mean Ryukishi is doing his job properly
