Synopsis

Ever since she was young, Eva Ushiromiya has worked tirelessly to prove herself as the ideal successor to the Ushiromiya family headship. Despite facing endless discrimination as a woman, she is determined to overcome the odds and surpass her older brother Krauss, who is set to inherit the position by way of birthright.

An opportunity to realize her dream comes at the annual conference on the island of Rokkenjima. With the announcement of the epitaph's riddle, Eva believes that finding the hidden gold will force the rest of the family members to acknowledge her. However, as the adults of the Ushiromiya family decipher the puzzle, a string of unexplained murders ensues, forewarning the unfortunate fate that awaits them in the end.

Meanwhile, the game board between the Golden Witch Beatrice and Battler Ushiromiya commences once more—bringing new yet unlikely accomplices to participate in the duel.

Story - 8

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON ??????????????????????????


That's probably what a completely new reader to this would ask on more than one occasion .Which is pretty understandable .Weird "furniture" being summoned with absolutely no explanations .No answers to the matter of what exactly "witches" are and no proper bearing of the situation as a whole being given by the author .

It's strange that there are no reviews for this manga. So let me explain why this episode of the story stands out more than the previous two and deserves 9/10.

Story - 9
The plot continues to show the great confrontation of minds, but in this episode we receive something slightly different. Instead of focusing only on battle where Beatrice and Buttler are trying to defeat one another, story provides us with Eva's and Beato's past. Without going to spoilers I want to say that their backstories are key features of this episode, because we get explanation of characters' motivations. This leads to a huge development of ...

Spoiler
Umineko continues to showcase its utter fraudulence in the face of storytelling. Tell me, if everything the characters do is the result of Beatrice's game, does any of the characters have meaning? If I am watching a Family Guy episode and Peter makes the decision to save his wife instead of his kids but then we find out that the situation itself was staged, would it not make the "character writing" null and void?

The contrivances and nonsense that take place in this episode have peaked past a point of return. Kanon, who has no prior experience fighting, can keep up with an Angel of Death ...
