If any of you would like to weave theories and the like, please post in the [Game] Umineko - Spoilers and speculations thread instead.

Financial constraints be damned. Looks like I'll have to borrow it from a friend.

This pleases me. Looking forward to hearing them.

So to tl;dr this whole game; its all just Burn's impression and nothing is confirmed due to serious lack of red text?

Klashikari 2010-08-15 07:31

Actually, it is exactly because of the lack of blue and red that this Episode may be the most critical in clues, a bit like Episode 1.
And that truth is perhaps the one that makes sense "the most" in contrast with Episode 5 and 6's.

MeoTwister5 2010-08-15 07:41

I agree with that because we've more or less become dependent on blue or red to confirm and argue things beyond a shadow of a doubt. By relying less on on the colored text, we need to be more attentive to things that aren't stated outright.

Would you guys expect an ending like the one in "The Burning Court"?
Personally, I think that'd be amazing.

sailorsean 2010-08-15 08:21

Well, I received my copy of Ep.7 today and since I don't know a lick of Japanese I basically just fast-forwarded the whole story and watched that.
And for some reason, for me this episode felt extremely short, I was able to get thorough the entire scenario within 20-25 minutes.
In other episodes just fast-forwarding took me a good 45-50 minutes to get through them. I don't know if I'm the only one who feels like this...?
However, the Tea Party was definitely the longest Tea Party in all the episodes.

Klashikari 2010-08-15 08:51

I wouldn't say 20-25 minutes, but yes the first part is noticeably shorter than usual. Granted, the fact there are far less meta world effects / transitions definitely explains why you can fast forward that quickly.

Episode 7 certainly looks shorter than 4-5-6, but I wouldn't put it shorter than 3 though.

Sir Andy Richter 2010-08-15 09:16

Why would Ryukishi lie at this stage of the game?

I have no choice but to accept everything in EP7.

Tyabann 2010-08-15 09:26

4chan doesn't seem to be conscious of it at all, but what happens in the Tea Party is what Bern considers to be "the truth" of what happened on Rokkenjima, correct?

Used Can 2010-08-15 09:34

I just couldn't take a smile out of my face when the other servants where basically the ass-neechans.

Dlanor .A. Nox 2010-08-15 10:32

I couldn't stop laughing once I seen the actual seven SERVANTS.

ArcticHelm 2010-08-15 11:00

Only sprite that really creeps me out is the young kinzo one. :| Burn with fire!

goldenlove27 2010-08-15 11:13

Ha ha! :heh: Watch what you say because there are some that he looks sexy and they might burn you with fire. But you know Kinzo is always burned with fire so... yeah... :/
As for the Ass nee-chans.... Still doable, (especially Belph). :3

immblueversion 2010-08-15 11:26

So, what are the names of all the Maids of Purgatory?

MeoTwister5 2010-08-15 11:36

Okay God and schedule willing I'll probably be posting summaries again for this episode like I did for the entirety of episode 5 and halfway through episode 6 (Ep6 got so complicated that I simply couldn't muster the brain power to finish it). As I said before this is equal parts every bit of Japanese I learned in college, a pair of dictionaries and a machine translator.

Again these will only be summaries of the text and not the actual text and dialogue itself, and do not expect them to be completely accurate. They are not intended to be substitutes for a well-oiled translation team ala Witchunt, they are only meant to be... supplementary at best. Like before, feel free to correct me when I fuck up along the way (which is to say a good amount of the time :eyespin:).

My friend's copy arrives tomorrow and I'll end up borrowing it as I'm too poor for my own copy right now. I'll start probably Tuesday. Here's to hoping it's not as complex and technical as Ep6 was, damn that was a headache.

Renall 2010-08-15 11:39

It's not, with some exceptions. I think you'll have a lot less trouble with it than ep6 especially.

I hope so. When I got to the parts beyond the logic error's introduction I found myself second guessing everything I read due to the complexities of the debates and especially the length of the reds and blues. Especially the reds and blues, because some of them came in ENTIRE paragraphs. I may even have seen kanji I couldn't even find in the dictionary. Even in English a lot of them was still somewhat difficult.:upset:

Edit - I was actually never trained to read any kanji characters. The classes I took all went through some katakana and all the hiragana.

goldenlove27 2010-08-15 11:46

Well in advance MeoTwister5, I will thank you as I have now knowledge of the japanese language. I don't know if I ever thanked you for the other times you gave the other summaries so thank you for them as well.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 07:57.
