So why haven't they named Nanjou yet? Do they hate him? Do they consider him that unimportant?


they fear him >__<, if his name is pronounced, they'll be cursed

not impressed with the rushed story. Kinzo's speech to Natsuhi is a really important event within EP1, yet it just didnt have that impact in the anime version.

Also, since we've seen the first six offering, can't wait till

It was good but i'm a bit disappointed they killed off half the cast in one fell swoop.

So...who exactly died? Battler's two parents, Krauss, Shannon, the cook, and who is the 6th one?

Besides that, this was a very piecy, and slightly corny episode. Maria reading the letter was cheesy, and so was Battler's reaction to the death. The conversation between Battler and his mom about the chessboard seemed totally illogical trying to be passed off as sound intelligence.

I think I'm mostly annoyed by the episode, but I remain hopeful that more will make sense with each episode.

God, the Umineko discussion topics are a mess. Guess I'll just drop my post and get out.

Anyway, not too bad of an episode. Next one should be better. Still don't like how they're displaying Natsuhi in the anime. Important stuff is being left out. Oh well.

[edit]: If you haven't seen the episode, please do us all a favor and shut the fuck up.

Having no previous knowledge about this series before watching the first 2 episodes I must say it's got my interest and it seems well done so far. Kinda sucks so many people got killed off that fast, I'm guessing there won't be more than one or two left in the end if they're taking that many out in only the second episode though.

Looks like everything just started. But already 6 killed people? Woah.

you've gotta be kidding me,the second epsidoe was horrible
I thought that the second episode was going to be much slower
but it's still rushed,it felt so forced
7 chapters equal with do 2 episodes,come on! -___-
and I mean when you're parents got killed
wouldn't you be more hysterical
such a disappointing anime
come on what were they thinking
I expected more of this anime,
gotta stick with the manga and game

I'm glad I haven't played the game, because I enjoyed this episode very much. Think I'll put it on-hold until it's finished, though - I just can't stand watching a series such as this weekly.

Thank you very much for the spoiler. How lovely.


Yay, axe-crazy eyes xD And was Maria watching Higurashi? o.o
I feel bad for George :(
I need to play the game.


Should it be considered a spoiler when it's information you should already long know? The first 10 minutes of the game, you learn that.

Well.. rereading. It's worded poorly. Kyrie is Battler's step-mom.


o.O Who said I ever played the game? If it wasn't said in the anime, it IS a spoiler. As someone stated, this is anime only discussion. ;) Just saying.

this animation is quite good, but still i feel it's a bit rush and they neglect a lot of details even though those details could be found in game and manga.

OMG dam sry for the ppl who died but for what purpose were the faces cut off?
i mean is it to make it not possible to identify them by thier face , only by thier clothing?
so what if it wasnt them? O.o
So who ever has done it could be the one that is supposedly "dead"
believed to be 18 ppl , so 6 dead 12 more XD
dam i wants to watch the 3rd episode ,
not to be harsh or anything but that George guy is one unlucky person <_<

Only the second episode and they're already getting right into the gore. THIS is what Higurashi's all about <3 I love this series..and I feel bad about Shannon dying after she was just proposed to. I had a feeling she'd be one of the ones to die D:

Really good episode. All the deaths came as quite a surprise. Battler's reaction was a little awkward, but other than that I don't have any complaints.

Iirc, the 6th one was Maria's mother Rosa.

If anything else, this thread's confirming that ignorance is definite bliss for people like me who haven't gone for the VN or the manga. Also, people with questions really need to read the whole discussion thread, it's already been stated (thanks to the people who answered before) that the person most of the watchers are missing out the six who died is Rosa, Maria's mother.

I'm probably a bit odd in that I keep all characters names and info on hand in a Notepad file while I watch, but I am really enjoying this adaptation so far. It feels very much the same way watching Onikakushi-hen from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni did. I'm sad that Rosa died, having her change from literally beating her daughter to a much more caring and grateful mother made me like her all the more, and now she's dead.

From a general viewpoint, though, I think watching Higurashi kind of warped the experience a bit. I already knew that someone was going to die, and continually thought: "Ah, Kanon's dead. No, wait, it's probably this person." Up until the deaths actually occurred, at which point I doubled back because the gore was a there-and-gone part on the mutilated faces.

The proposal scene did seem a bit rushed and misplaced, but the George's concept of wearing the ring or not the next day was a nice one. Made me think George was on the cutting block, not Shannon, but alas I was wrong. Why does the sincere and innocent maid have to die?

In the same respect, I really feel sympathetic to Natsuhi's character now after the scene where Jessica hands her the scorpion charm, and I wonder if that actually comes into play.

OP and ED are really growing on me, I love the parts where the vocals seem to "cry out", fits the anime title as well.

I'm interested to see if Beatrice's character turns out to be just plain evil, or if she actually has a backstory to her the way Takano did in Higurashi. Seeing as how a good part of the thread is complaining about how some of the characters are underdeveloped and cut off, makes me want to read the manga or play the VN after the season. After the season because right now I'm really having fun watching this, and I don't want it spoiled by these feelings all the more informed people seem to be experiencing.

The discussion about the BGM is interesting as well, if anyone can link to some place where I can find more information on the music behind Umineko no Naku Koro ni I'd much appreciate it.

Enjoyed this episode much more than the first.

Wow, this is terrible. They're completely butchering the material, which in itself wouldn't be so bad if they weren't cutting out essential character development.

Not even goldenslaughterer can save the debauchery that was this first twilight.


I completely agree. Admittedly I liked the second episode much, much more than the first, but overall they're really cutting out way too much, and we're missing a lot of key information about the characters.

Still, I guess that's the difference between a visual NOVEL and an ANIME.

Also: The art sucks dick. In one scene, Battler looks like Kanye West.

Yeah they made him pretty moé. I'm sure there will be hundreds of Kanon doujins later on for you fangirls to schlick to.

This was a huge improvement over the first episode in terms of pacing. I especially liked how they didn't completely pussy out on the murders.


But Im not a girl. lol

Great episode :)
It really was perfect in all its horrorful ways...

I'm too lazy to look through the other pages, cause I gotta run, but, did anyone else notice the Chiaki Kon (Hanyuu from Kai) picture when Maria is watching TV? It doesn't show her face, but her body and her tie and it looks the same... :O

Great episode. Although I'm glad we've finally got the introductions out of the way and are moving on to the "Ten Little Soldiers" gig, it also goes to show that the first episode was rushed since there wasn't enough time spent introducing the characters for me to remember any of them. I really have no idea who died besides Shannon.

So, 12 left now. I'll refrain from speculation since this is an 07th Expansion, cause based on Higurashi, it would be totally normal if it was revealed that the killer is an invisible squid monster from space.

Anyway, looking forward to the next episode.

Shannon was voiced by teh Rie? I totally didn't notice.

I have been spoiled a little, but no complains. I want to see "how it was done", even though I know some of the "what was done" and "who did it". And yes, Battler's reaction was pretty lame... but otherwise really good episode.
