Characters discussion - Furniture of the witches

The purpose of this thread is to provide a place to discuss all things related to the furniture of the witches.
To keep the discussion enjoyable for all Umineko no Naku Koro ni fans, please follow the guidelines below and stay on-topic!

Please note that considering the huge number of characters in the franchise, this thread was created in order to provide a place for everyone to discuss about "non main" magical characters. There are already threads for the witches, as follow: Beatrice, Bernkastel and Lambdadelta.

Note: Please don't use this for the specific episode / chapter / game talk, there are other threads for that stuff.

Thread Guidelines
  • No campaigning!
    No "hate" or "xyz must die" posts. Discuss why you do or don't like characters without whining and whining or blatantly campaigning for your favorite.
  • Be polite to your fellow forum members.
    Do not insult or harass other members for their likes and dislikes. Do not take it so seriously that you end up in an argument with another forum member because they express a fondness for a character you loathe. Discussion and good spirited banter is always welcome, but harassing people won't be tolerated.
  • Discuss, not Chat.
    Please remember that AnimeSuki is a discussion forum, not a chat room, there is a difference. If you wish to chat, then please make use of our IRC channel (#animeuki) on ZiRC.
  • Have fun, but post intelligently.
    It's great to have fun, but please try your best to add substance to what you post and make your thoughts interesting for the generation of fans that will follow after you’re long gone and on to watching some other series.
  • As the anime progresses, Please use spoiler tags!VN Spoilers are NOT allowed, except if they are used for comparison sake about events that have been already shown in the anime (or if the timing has been bypassed with no way to be disclosed later on).These must be enclosed in spoiler tags clearly marked with a proper title. Failure to do this can result in a BAN. Also please be sure to use spoiler tags for critical scenes from the Anime series with a proper title (like Episode X-Y) in order to not spoil people who didn't catch up the latest anime episodes yet.
  • Adding a Spoiler tag:
    Just highlight your spoiler and click the button found
    on the "Quick Reply" and "Reply to Thread" forms.
    Make sure that you include a title for the spoiler!

    to locate and deal with problems quickly.
  • Posting prohibited spoilers may result in a ban.

This needs clarifications. Technically those who qualify as furniture are

The seven sisters of purgatory:

The siesta sisters:
-556 (mentioned in a preview)

-All of the Goats

Ronove and Gaap are demons, moreover Virgilia is a witch. Will they get their proper thread?

The idea is that they "belong" to this thread as they serve Beatrice and other witches.
Remember that, for example, Ronove is the "head furniture" of Beato's, even though his rank is much higher than mere tool.
Of course, Virgilia isn't in that kind of category.

That is to say, for all intern and purpose, this thread is broad so I can let people to discuss of all meta world characters, aside of the witches. Perhaps I will simply change it into "Meta world characters" or something.
I did plan like this, as creating even more singular threads might be way too much, but I can change my mind if the need is present over time.

The stakes were my favorite bunch of furniture till I read EP5. Still they are pretty fun and hilarious characters regardless though. I'd say my favorite one is Beelzebub.~

Virgilia is definetly my favorite witch after Beato and Lambda. In the anime she was cool but in EP4 of the VN that was upped to awesome with her wacky comical routine and goat-kun. =p

Ronove gets points too solely for that sexeh stache of his.~

Gotta love the ass neechans. I was never particularly fond of the Siestas though, but, anyway, nyeh...

I also like Ronove a lot. All the same, the Meta Characters are my favourite ones. I think they are the ones who make this game fun the most.

"The big breasted Onee chans" are probably my favorite. Just because of that nickname Battler gave them.

Honestly though I was surprised that in the character polls the goats and Ronove were always the least popular characters. I mean Goat kun got just as much votes as Nanjo, which was basically none.

I'm a huge fan of Virgilia, Bronove, and Gaap. They are awesome. <3

I love the stakes too. Specifically Mammon, Satan, Leviathian, and possibly Beezlebub or Asmodeos. Not a fan of the siestas at all, except maybe Siesta 00.

I would have to say I care nothing for the stakes or the siestas. Not being game player could also be it . As well as contributing to too many damn females in the game. They appear annoying and pointless to me in the anime. Only Siesta 00 seemed fine. I do know they have bigger part to play but meh as characters I wish they would have been demons or even had some male cast.

I liked Sakutaro he was actually cute and I liked his character.

The stakes are awesome...<3
As for the siestas...45 is fine to me.
00 is pure love<3
But 410 just annoys me..-_-
I dunno if its her voice or her attitude lol

Ronove is awesome...first, I disliked him, but after a few episodes...<3

Gaap...don't know..I like her somehow, but her way of fighting is so..boring x_x

And yeah, sakutaro ftw..though I think we can't really call him "furniture"...

lol, 45 is my favorite Siesta, probably because I'm a twin-tail fetishist XD
Also most of her expressions are like saying: "I'm a uke!"

Everyone's taking 45! She's mine >_< And I find 410 amusing nyihi

Regarding the stakes, I didn't really care for them much at first. But as the games progressed, I'm finding myself liking them more, especially Mammon. It probably had to do with more fleshing out of the characters rather than them just being tools furniture.

Among all the magical beings discussed in this thread Gaap is one that puzzles me the most.

All of the others have a clearly identifiable "vessel" that comes from the real world.

Ronove's vessel is Genji
Virgilia's is Kumasawa

The seven sisters of the purgatory represent the seven stakes

Sakutaro's vessel is the homonymous plushy

as for the siestas they both represent Maria's ceramic rabbits and the guns

In Gaap's case however it is very difficult to find a vessel. Some says she represents Jessica, some says she represents Shannon, some others do not think she represents a human being at all.

You forgot the theory she represents Kanon (I'm considering Shannon as highest possibility though)

Well, the logic would be that she represent... Nanjo xD
He is the only one among the ones originally present in the mansion that does not have a specifical character:
It is said that Gaap can break any theories by making disappearing things.
Nanjo could destroy all theories by claiming someone is dead while it isn't.
She is the best friend of beatrice
Nanjo is the best friend of Kinzo
Gaap and Beatrice got the same hair color, so does Kinzo and Nanjo.
There are a lot of small hints like this^^

Oh and you forgot to say that Gohda is represented by the 4th Game Goat (The one who fights Krauss )

it is kind of disturbing to think that Gaap represents Nanjo though....
