Character discussion - George

The purpose of this thread is to provide a place to discuss all things George related.
To keep the discussion enjoyable for all Umineko no Naku Koro ni fans, please follow the guidelines below and stay on-topic!


Note: Please don't use this for the specific episode / chapter / game talk, there are other threads for that stuff.

Thread Guidelines
  • No campaigning!
    No "hate" or "xyz must die" posts. Discuss why you do or don't like characters without whining and whining or blatantly campaigning for your favorite.
  • Be polite to your fellow forum members.
    Do not insult or harass other members for their likes and dislikes. Do not take it so seriously that you end up in an argument with another forum member because they express a fondness for a character you loathe. Discussion and good spirited banter is always welcome, but harassing people won't be tolerated.
  • Discuss, not Chat.
    Please remember that AnimeSuki is a discussion forum, not a chat room, there is a difference. If you wish to chat, then please make use of our IRC channel (#animeuki) on ZiRC.
  • Have fun, but post intelligently.
    It's great to have fun, but please try your best to add substance to what you post and make your thoughts interesting for the generation of fans that will follow after you’re long gone and on to watching some other series.
  • As the anime progresses, Please use spoiler tags!VN Spoilers are NOT allowed, except if they are used for comparison sake about events that have been already shown in the anime (or if the timing has been bypassed with no way to be disclosed later on).These must be enclosed in spoiler tags clearly marked with a proper title. Failure to do this can result in a BAN. Also please be sure to use spoiler tags for critical scenes from the Anime series with a proper title (like Episode X-Y) in order to not spoil people who didn't catch up the latest anime episodes yet.
  • Adding a Spoiler tag:
    Just highlight your spoiler and click the button found
    on the "Quick Reply" and "Reply to Thread" forms.
    Make sure that you include a title for the spoiler!
  • Please use the Report button if you see any spoilers:
    Click the button found to the left of the post, just under the poster's avatar.
    Using the Report button is anonymous and helps the Moderators
    to locate and deal with problems quickly.
  • Posting prohibited spoilers may result in a ban.
    Note: Reporting a post does not mean the poster will be banned instantly.
    The Moderators will use bans if warnings are repeatedly ignored.

He wasn't really fat, chubby would be the word.

I always thought that George was only a little above average when it came to weight... meh, either way, he's not supposed to be a bishounen. Other than that, I don't really have much else to say about George... ^^;

Actually, now that I think about it, all the characters in the VN are considerably fatter than their anime counterparts. Guess that tells us something about the modern ideal of the body....

The manga had it correct for George IMO. In terms of body builds, they didn't get George, Battler, and Kanon.

Anyway, to keep the discussion to George, maybe they'll start to appreciate him by next episode? If not, then the next Episode.

Well I must say that George in this anime isn't really a "bishonen" as I feared, but still him being almost as tall as Battler doesn't make sense, because a person that tall in Japan would stand out, and George is supposed to be average.

Not only that, Battler also confirms in the VN that he is actually 10cm taller than George. Therefore, George should be 1m70 tall which definitely follows the "average" image he is supposed to have.

George finally gets a promotional picture. Not sure where else it's going, but so far it's just seen on the website (the Flash intro).

http://umineko.tv/web/index.html

He and Shannon share the picture together. Apparently Shannon has another picture as well seen on the index of the site.

I'm too stunned and surprised to say something...

GEORGE~......!!
This is the revenge for the missing on the CD cover! Though Shanon's boobs are really huge I mean come on *rollz eyes* not as well done as the one before but nice. Thoguht the other Shannon picture looks strange and scares me.

Considering the general style of the VN art, is he REALLY supposed to be that fat? After seeing the bottom half of this sprite, I was surprised his legs were so skinny!

Spoiler for pic:

well people generaly assume he's chubby based on the descriptions. Shannon said something about him inheriting Hideyoshi's genes, no clue what else she could be refferring to.

chara sprites are not a good reference, for example Battler is supposed to be generaly well-built and high and IMO his sprites looks short and fat so yeah.

That he could gain weight fast or that he has a really round face.
