Well, this reasoning sure was useless, that's true... but I still find these two scenes quite ridiculous. These mistakes make him WAY too incompetent ;_;

Not really. He never follows through with either of those theories. For the first one, Kanon is only the most likely person to have his master key (it's more likely that he took it and left than for another person to take it and hide Kanon's corpse but not Jessica's), and Battler's just trying to remove suspicion on Kanon. In that case, it's proven that the original assumption was false in the same scene. For the second one, Battler is just expanding on Rosa's theory and hardly has any time to think before the letter and the two extra master keys are found.

But yeah, he is very impressionable at the start. He assumes things really easily, without stopping to consider whether those assumptions are really absolutely true.

That would be incredible! You guys are truly amazing for doing this for us. Even if something that fast isn't possible, I am always in awe of how quickly Witch Hunt releases high quality patches. I don't state my appreciation nearly enough.

You're right in that it's probably better to hold out for the patch, especially after waiting this long for answers. I've just been let down by the endings of a few other things recently, and when I see how complicated finding any sort of satisfactory ending for Umineko will be, it's hard not to lose faith that we will get a great end. I should make more of an effort- I really do think Ryukishi is so talented, and I was fine with Higurashi's end, even though I know some people here weren't pleased with it.

Exactly. I could buy Battler not realizing it, since he's incompetent and is barely around Kanon, but I haven't been able to come up with any reason for everyone on the island trying to convince Battler that Shannon and Kanon are two different people. I wish I could come up with a Shkanon theory I don't find ridiculous, since it really does seem very likely that it's true. Here's hoping the answers that are coming make everyone happy.

Well thanks for telling me. I'll have to hide in the episode 6 and other episode centric threads for now.

Now that we're finally getting some answers, it'll probably be much more enjoyable to learn them the way Ryukishi meant for them to be learned. Just hearing one-sentence summaries of the reveals can hardly do the series justice. You have to let Ryuukishi lead you to them if you really want to experience the game the way it was meant to be. We've all stuck with this series for a really long time; it isn't worth weakening the impact of the climax by hearing all the answers beforehand.
It'll be really awesome if you can get a partial patch in a month! Even if it's only a small part of the game.

I'm currently typing the first episode so i can find certain spots easier and white is actually very true and if you know about it already you go "ah of course"
for example
K5 “My father is already dead. ...All that's here is a phantom of what Father once was. At any rate, as long as he has no intention of coming out, there's nothing we can do.” Krauss spun on his heels. He looked at his wristwatch, mumbling and acting as though he had wasted time doing something he knew would be in vain.
The Earth is flat: Kinzo is a stubborn and obsessed person.
The Earth is round: Kinzo is already dead, he just said that.
Both is true in it's current time (or i bow to you if you found that conclusion on your first playthrou)

Since the other Kinzo is dead, as long as you're focusing on the affirmative actions of a single person, no problem.

The issue of course is the following:
  • "Acknowledged the existence of Kinzo."
  • "A living Kinzo."
  • "Since [Kinzo] is confirmed not to exist, please exclude him."
If there were a passed-on Kinzo title, how many of these would refer to that person, and how many would refer to the dead one? "A living Kinzo" is especially bad for ep5, as if you believe that there is a Kinzo-title floating around, you either have to believe in switching off personalities or that whoever became "Kinzo" was in Natsuhi's bed all night.

...Unless, by solving the epitaph and becoming family head Battler eradicated the need for the second "Kinzo." If "Kinzo" is meant as a fallback position in case the epitaph goes unsolved, Battler solving it means no "Kinzo" exists well before midnight, as Battler solves it on the 4th.
*insert crack theory about how natsuhi is kanon who is kinzo here*

Indeed. Usually I just fastforward through the new games so I can get the music box and listen to the new musics (especially the new zts murder rave song in each one, lol)

<See you again> in the EP6 thread

We can hope that, for a time, ep7 spoilers will be contained mostly in the ep7 thread (well, when one is put up). But there's no guarantees, so... yeah.

I'm not taking my chances after tonight, I don't wanna find out how Asumu Ushiromiya was actually Nanjo's daughter or whatever crazy stuff is in EP7.

I'm pretty sure the game is released on Saturday, so it's not until tomorrow.

Meh there's at least one thing I want to be spoiled about.
Is it the last ep.
Also if Shkanon Shkanon is confrimed or denied it'd be great to get rid of that debate.
Will probably be out after I learn that much as well. Especially since it seems the board will die...

I'll be getting it tomorrow, although I don't know if we'll have time to play it right away. But if I do, for now, I'll put any spoilers for EP7 in spoiler boxes on here... 8)

Aww. So it seems the thread might be dying from the lack of people. No fear! I shall read the spoilers to my satisfaction.

So may I count on the Japanese readers to give slight summaries please? It'd be very much appreciated.

So it's too early for anything real to be out yet, right? Saw this on /jp/:



I'd only consider it being real because one of the screenshots released a few weeks ago seemed to imply Ange might be coming to the island. I think the art is too bad even for Ryukishi (something about those socks especially, also lack of hairthings), but I also remember when everyone thought Featherine and the trap demons were fake...

I would consider this fake (until proven otherwise) It's way to early. It should come out in 10 to 9 hours from now.
