I guess she really believes in Beatrice and the epitaph? Because of the sign of Rosa's death, she most likely believes that she will meet with her at the Golden Land as well?

Look at me, I sound like another Ange/Maria.

Just something I thought of.... are there Synagogues in japan? I know there are christian churches in japan, but I' m not sure about synagogues. The reason I ask is because if maria was visiting a secret Rabbi than it would explain why she can read Hebrew.

Of course maybe she only needed to understand enough to read her notes and understand bible verses.

Hebrew actually wouldn't be as complicated as japanese for her to learn. Unlike Japanese that has many varying symbols for different words 100's in fact. Hebrew has a 22 letter alphabet and would be easier IMO to learn.

on topic:

I really like Maria as a character even though I find her annoying. Actually the reason I like her is BECAUSE she's annoying. The more I hate her the more I want to know about her.

I think there is a synagogue in Tokyo but I'm not enterily sure...

I think that she learnt it from books, it is also possible that she actually dosent know it at all but have memorized the meanings of all circles.

She was already familiar with those particular circles. They were all shown in her notebook at one point. Most likely either:
- Maria's Beatrice taught them to her with the intention of using in the murders.
- the killer used them in the murders because they were in Maria's notebook.

Obvious, more than likely~

I think this is obvious by now but I really adore Maria-Chan!

Uuu~

As obvious as it is, it's also hard to see since I've been dead for so long. I LOVE Maria so much, if she was real I'd want her to be my little sister.

Well, there is the likelihood that Maria hung out with the same person who is drawing these circles at every family conference. I am pretty sure these exact circles are written down somewhere in Maria's bag. I mean when she goes 'crazy mode' with her eyes both 3 inches in diameter she seems to be repeating something from memory instead of thinking about it. Like a parot.
Pretty much what roger posted.

I strongly doubt that Maria can read hebrew. She just happens to know the meaning of those specific words. Her character TIPS state that she is very good at memorizing that sort of stuff.

The one thing I remember about Maria the most was ~UUUUU~~UUUUU~~UUUUU~~UUUUU~~UUUUU~~UUUUU~~UUUUU~~ UUUUU~~UUUUU~~UUUUU~~UUUUU~~UUUUU~~UUUUU~~UUUUU~~U UUUU~~UUUUU~~UUUUU~~UUUUU~

and the occasional slapping of Rosa, the best mom ever

It's so adorable when Maria starts say Uuuu..uuu, another thing I like about her is her other dark side double personality, there's nothing more effing cooler than a innocent looking child with a inner demon that can rape anyone's mind.

Well...Maria is.....special. >_>

I don't really like her,and I like her at the same time.

I'm pretty sure she's the only one who 100% believes in Beatrice.

Maria's one of the best characters in Umineko, and in some respects the kindest and noblest.

Her uu- uu- really annoyed me till they showed her grimoire after that it was "daaaaw that's cute"
One of the few Beatrice believers which is a big + point. Maybe a little bit too into Beatrice and emotionsless to the dead but that only rises her creepy value

Well to each to their own as some people would say ^^ Rosa also doesn't do much in the novels yet she's insanely popular so...yeah.

Besides Maria does have an active role at least in the first 4 arcs.

The only time I can say ''Woah'' to Maria is when she destroys Rosa.That caught me off guard.

But when I mean she doesn't do much,I mean she isn't evil.
Spoiler for Spoilerz:


Besides,Rosa may not have done ''much'',but to all anime viewers, she was the who silenced all the ''Uu's'',and made us ''Awe''.She destroyed my least favorite character ''Sakutaro''.She's pure awesome.

Well yeah Maria isn't evil at all. nor would she be anywhere close to a possible culprit or even an accomplice IMO. Although frankly that shoudn't affect her likability with the fans ^^

She was awesome at the end of episode 2 (Rosa musou!!) Although too bad she's too much of a failmum to be very likable after that (atleast for me)
