I thought Asmodeus was a bit too high pitched. Satan sounded good to me.

Hey we agree for once! Still considering Asmodeus is Lust it's not exactly the right voice for her imo... oh well.. I'll rather they miscast Asmodeus than Beatrice...

Usually voice acting directors try to make the voices of characters as much as distinguishable as possible, with 7 characters all of about the same age I guess it was hard to achieve such a goal. That's probably why they made asmodeus have such a high pitched voice.

When I watched this episode, I was thinking to myself "I don't see how people will manage to complain about this episode". The red truth was appropriately translated, the fight sene got a nice choregraphy, the new VA's where spot on and the pacing was much better than previous instances. But negative people are negative after all :/

Can anyone tell me if Umineko is done by the same team that did Higurashi?

Here's my instantly-made joke: Rock Me, Asmodeus!

Is it just me, or the swords/katars(?) looks like the standard arms for the Protoss (alien) race from Starcraft?

Anyway, the game finally begin (for me). The most interesting part about Umineko is watching Battler make excuses to foil Beatrice's "It's magic, i ain't gonna explain anything"-- i'm expecting more of this and red texts to appear from now on.

Just from memory, I'm pretty sure they changed the design from the VN for the anime. XD They might have taken it from somewhere.

Not really. The blade only looks slightly similar in the anime than in the VN

They are only similar in the concept of a triangle (sort of) shaped blade that stretches out of an arm. But the protoss zealot's psyblade doesn't have any sort of specific design

Just a question to the VN players but do we ever see those beam sword things ever again?
Honestly I wasn't really a fan of that at all, the last thing I wanna see is a beam sword fight in every episode.

Yep. Of course I can't tell you how much more, when and where, but we'll see them again.

They are of course part of the fantasy arsenal so they have to be there.

Don't worry, it won't happen every episode.

At first those kind of scenes feel like they destroy the atmosphere and don't belong but later you'll realize that they add to Umineko's greatness.

oh well, at this episode clears up how the stakes (human form), the goats, and the triangle swords come into place. Been seeing too many fanarts to ignore the existence of the 3 elements above.
Find the spinning scene extremely hilarious.
I don't mind everyone has the ability to fight, as I would love to see the final struggle like in higurashi where everyone is able to take part. However that would probably in the fantasy sense since the culprit is most likely to be one of the 18 people.

So in this world, Shannon, Gohda, and Rosa survived the 1st twilight while Krauss + battler's parents still hasn't got the time to shine. Hopefully they have the opportunity to do so in EP3.

I am quite interested to see the way the studio applies the red text, but like someone stated before, maybe a floating block of text in the middle of the space would create greater impact. However I am fine as it is.

The fight scene practically ran the same length in the VN itself, only difference is that it's carried out using only two stills and clashing sounds. The only moment when the anime actually uses its capabilities to choreograph a scene that's undoubtedly better as animation... should I be surprised that people still complain? Whenever action events speed by really quickly, there are complaints. Whenever it's done the opposite, the complaints still won't cease. Unfortunately, it's become the norm, so just take it for what it is and wait for the next episode.

Hey, when I saw Episode 8... I couldn't help but make this video.
I sure hope no one has thought of this yet...
(I also posted this on the MAD thread)

Oh, the english translations of the red text are posted? Hm, well, here are the japanese texts taken straight from the show, I haven't seen it posted yet so it might be helpful to the anime viewers to have them.


これから先、妾が真実を語る場合は、赤い文字でその文章を示す。
(kore kara saki, warawa ga shinjitsu wo kataru baai ha, akai moji de sono bunshou wo shimesu.)

生きていたか死んでいたかはさておき、6人は確かに扉から入った。
(ikiteita ka shindeita ka ha sateoki, rokunin ha tashikani tobira kara haitta.)

礼拝堂の鍵は一本しか存在しない。

礼拝堂の扉は、礼拝堂の鍵以外では施錠も解錠も不可能!
