Considering Maria greets Beatrice in the 2nd arc like she knew her quite well and even call her by her nickname 'Beato', it's not unreasonable to think she met her on the island before (e.g. the previous family meetings). Perhaps Beatrice taught her all this stuff or helped her write it down in her notes even its really complicated. The games suggested that Maria has a really good memory when she was the first to realize that the shrine was missing (in the 1st arc).

I'm pretty sure they stated somewhere that Kinzo doesn't like Maria. (If Jessica was the magic expert it would make more sense, since she lives there and would have more chances to read his books.) Beatrice only works as a solution if she exists.

Yeah, the whole "offering them up as human sacrifices" thing kind of made that clear.

Yet he is the best source for the material, and you'd be surprized by just what a nine year old can retain if they are interested in a topic.

Well actually. Kinzo do like Genji and Nanjo whom he consider his best friends, but it's not like he made an exception for them.

Okay end off topic...

You know, I can't help at grin every time I see Maria's crazy smile in the opening. It's so contagious!

Me too!
Her evil smile..uu uu.
I love it.

It reminds me of Higurashi. Mion/Shion's creepy smile.

I believe It's supposed to, I feel so bad for Maria. Damn you, Rosa. Stop hitting her
Now, if It were to take a Higurashi twist and Maria and Beatrice to kill everyone......
.....
.....
It'd be upset.

I think she said she meets her every year on the island or something in EP2.

Maria is one of those characters that I liked at first and then liked even more, so much that I started to slap Rosa on my screen.

On the other note, I just realize as I browsed danbooru the other day that there is still not a single unsafe picture of Maria. Most awesome thing ever I must admit. I risked dirtying my eyes and browsed 19 pages just to prove my point.

I guess the pedophiles just don't find Maria that attractive a loli. =p

Though it is still a bit of a surprise acctually, as much as I loathe loli porn.

I love Maria as a character, she's just after Bern in my list, and that's partly due to Rika.

My favourite Umineko loli characters: Bern > Maria >Lambda

Can't remember since when i liked her. She kind of freaked me out in EP I
