On the other hand your point is also a logical conclusion. After Natsuhi's accusation the characters stay as a group and keep an eye on Natsuhi until 10/06 and from then on the possibility of Natsuhi as culprit becomes 'the truth' for that kakera.
It didn't. It stops after Eva shoots Battler and kills him. After that it's the cheesy Golden Land sequence.

Personally, for me, Episode 5 is my favorite so far.

Before I begin, there is a lot of parallelism talk of the events by Beato to Romance of the Three Kingdoms, the story of the 3 warring states of the post-Han era of China. You may need to read a bit about it since it'll take me too long to give a background of this era (it's a really long book).

Ok umm what is more correct? Dlanor or Dranor? In Japanese it's said as Drano-ru but in English Dlanor seems more appropriate...

Dlanor. It fits with Ronald, as in the Ronald Knox that created the ten rules.

I see thanks.

Ok for the next summary, due to the dynamic nature of the Battles, since most of the events are occurring in Beato's metaworld I'll be indicating if theres a Real World break that explains certain events before the action returns to the metaworld

It's one hell of a difficult ride but please bear with me.

I will update this post with the summary when I'm done with it. Also, Dlanor is fucking awesome.

How the hell do you pronounce "Dlanor"?

Wouldn't "Dranol" work better? Same letters...

That doesn't work, since it is kinda obvious Ryukishi used the reversed order of the letters.
That said, we will ask Ryukishi if he wanted to use something more fancy than strict reversed letter order (who knows, maybe he used "dlanor" as a blue print and really mean using japanese romaji, so duranolu or something like that).

But without any other detail, it has to be Dlanor.

Oh god this scene is long but epic beyond belief. The next summary is cut down during a transition because I'm tired. Will continue later.

Also, Beato just failed massive.

Spoiler for Very long Ep5 summary:


Taking a massive break. This sequence alone ate up 3 hours lol!

Edit - Oh snap before I forget here's the updated lists for Red and Blue Text. A lot was used for this scene.

That's a shame. I wish she would get a larger role after what happened in Episode 4.

hmm, I wonder if battler actually got his priorities straight.

so, what he wants to do is (according to order I guess.)
1. Defeat Erika
2. Resurrect beatrice
3. Defeat Beatrice once revived (basically a message to others, "ONLY I CAN KILL HER!")
4. Take back his family

Anything else more to add?

I'm working on taking billions of screenshots, translating some of the text (+ all red and blue text), and writing summaries as I go through the game in parts.

Each part is the amount of gameplay covered in one sitting. They're probably 20 minutes apiece if you're a fast reader.

Part I
Part II (This one is somewhat rambling, I apologize)
Part III
Part IV
Part V
Part VI (In progress)

At this point I have no clue how long the game is, so maybe it'll run into 20+ parts.
...I am slow to play the game.

Finally finished episode 5.

My favorite parts were:
+Battler jumping out of the window
+Catching Beato (Can't wait to see this animated )
+Bern and Erika getting owned in ???? (no victory for you (w)itch of miracles)

I didn't see any errors so I don't know what part people are talking about when they say Hideyoshi's sprite shows when it shouldn't.

-I felt bad for Natsuhi throughout most of the game and have a new respect for her.

Wierd things:
+Why was Erika wearing a swimsuit if she "accidently" fell off a boat?
+So Erika really taped the doors, watched for people from the lounge, and listened to Battler sleep all night? ok...
+I don't see how it can be possible for someone to have knocked on the door given all the red truths. Mabye the answer has to do with multiple truths existing as was mentioned near the end.

Predictions for next game:
+I don't think meta Beato will be in it (and probably won't appear again until the last game)
+Magic world Beato will be there though
+Just like Beato was able to communicate with her piece on the board Battler will now be able to as well. This will be interesting.

The two errors (?) that people have identified are:

1. Hideyoshi showing up in Natushi's room...which he shouldn't be able to.
2. Red text regarding Battler being in the guest house's dinning hall.

Just think how it'll look in the anime, and in the h-dōjins to come.

I wonder if we'll get to see things from Battler's perspective in the following games. If he's indeed found all the answers, then we shouldn't. I think there's a chance we'll see it from Erika's point of view.

If I recall correctly, Erika was on a pleasure cruise. So we can actually expect her to take good time on the deck (using a school mizu, instead of a regular swimseat for the usual cliché).
We can speculate from there that the boat approached the typhoon close to Rokkenjima and the weather caught everyone offguard.
