EP6 or EP5? This thread will get a lot slower when EP6 hits, haha.

People will probably go back to the EP 4 thread when the game comes out, to avoid spoilers and what not. But yeah, like k//eternal said, it'll slow at EP 6. Only reason this thread opened so early was because new girl portrait came and every thread was pretty much talking about it, so

I still wonder if we might get more back story on Natsuhi though - I'm particularly interested in the nature of her marriage with Krauss. On one hand the game shows hints that they do love each other, but on the other hand they don't even sleep in the same bed.

You know, that's exactly what I've always thought. Except for the first game being the only true reality. I mean, where else would Meta-Battler have come from?
Spoiler for Higurashi:

Well, they live in stinkin' mansion, nobody has to sleep in the same bed!

I think it must have been an arranged marriage. I mean, the Ushiromiyas are...the Ushiromiyas, (lol) and Natsuhi must have been from a pretty well-to-do family as well. I'd love to see what Natsuhi's family is like, considering we've already seen Kyrie's.

Yes and judging from Kyrie's family. I don't want to see NAtsuhi's, not another Kasumi *shudder*

Makes me wonder what Hideyoshi's family was like, other than dead

AND YOU THOUGHT THE USHIROMIYAS WERE BAD...

In episode 1, (though it was in the Kinzo scene), Natsuhi mentioned that, as part of joining the Ushiromiyas, she had cut herself off from her old family completely.

Watching that scene again in the anime (as I don't have the VN on me at the moment) Natsuhi seemed kind of saddened by the question, as if she really does miss them.

It's probably arranged.

(Ah, yes- and the link in my sig is filled with theories. xDD)

But she does eventually say to herself that she's a proud Ushiromiya woman who was prepared to join this family and cut ties with her original family.

Of course.

Maybe the Ushiromiyas were nicer to her before she married in, and they weren't all "HAVE A KID ALREADY |8<" until she actually married Krauss.

Well Natsuhi comes from a family of Shinto priests I believe (it's mention in EP 2 somewhere before the Shannon vs Beatrice battle and there is that mirror) so I'm sure it was somewhat strict. I wouldn't be surprised though if her marriage was somewhat arranged, since Krauss is the eldest child. Plus the shrine that go thunderbolted could have possibly come from her family maybe?

I guess she does miss them BUT still prefers to be Ushiromiya and married to Kraus than keep her ties with her old family but not marry Kraus.
However, Kraus doesn't seem to care TOO much for her, so I am not sure how happy she is currently.
Anyway: It is less than one week to the release of Ep5 - I won't visit this thread after the release and before a translation got released and I read/played it.

Btw.: Why is there a Ep6 poll thread already? Ep5 isn't even out yet, so how should we even think about voting for Ep6? Actually, it is already strange to vote for Ep5 as it isn't out yet...

...Shinto Priests?!? Why didn't I pick that up? I must have rushed through that part

Makes me wonder why Natsuhi isn't more Religious then.

This was mentioned by George, Gohda and Shannon while they started to plan going to the chapel to get the key...maybe you should reread that part

Maybe it could explain why her and Krauss don't even share a bed, even though they've been married for 30+ years or so

My theory on that is that Natsuhi is actually a sleepwalker (the dangerous kind who , that's why they had to start locking the mansion, Krauss never sleeping in the same bed, her massive headaches and stuff

BUt I think even if she were from a family of shinot priests they would sleep in the same bed

I think it has something to do with the fact that it took them a very long time to conceive (wasn't it something like 10 years?). I would imagine that'd have some sort of psychological effect on them when it comes to, erm, that. Especially if they aren't entirely in love.

...only 5 more days :O. I really need to brush up on my skills using my kanji dictionary, because at the rate I use it right now it'll take me a month to read in Japanese .

I don't think so. Both of them have shown hints over the last episodes that they do love and care about each other. Their relationship is probably strained because of Krauss and the image he has to keep. Telling Natsuhi to quiet down all the time - he probably only does that because he knows they all see her as an outsider.

Natsuhi committed the murders in her sleep!

So Natsuhi is from a Family of Shinto Priests, and Kyrie is from a Matriarchy...heh. Dysfunctional family Junction! It's almost as bad as Higurashi!

Which really makes me feel bad for Natsuhi. I mean, normally she has an okay life, but for two whole days every year she has to suffer so nothing bad happens in her family-which she's fully committed to, even though some of the people in it hate her.

Makes me wonder why they don't treat Hideyoshi and Kyrie that way.

Hideyoshi and Kyrie seem to know when to keep quiet. They also don't yell at the family members to leave the mansion at once.
