07th Expansion presents. Welcome to Rokkenjima (Six eaves island).

Fall 1986... in Rokkenjima, a private island owned by Kinzou Ushiromiya, eleven of his relatives arrive for a family reunion. He is dying and children want nothing more than to split the wealth he will leave behind. But as a storm traps them on the island, the riddle of Rokkenjima's legendary golden witch begins to take the lives of several people. Who can solve the riddle and gain the gold & the inheritance? Will the golden witch truly revive?

Note: The story is divided into episodes: four "Question" arcs. Each episode keeps the same main characters, but ends in a different way. However, each episode gives valuable answers, hints, and clues to the previous one, while at the same time bringing forth even more mysteries.
The question arcs are: Legend of the golden witch, Turn of the golden witch, Banquet of the golden witch, and Alliance of the golden witch.

Story: (9)
After the incident of EP1, Battler accepts Beatrice’s challenge in the meta world. To deny the existence of the Golden Witch, he must once again solve the mysterious murders on Rokkenjima which somehow has completely different events and outcomes.

In EP2, the murders occur around half way of the story. The first half focuses on some of the characters relationships, their feelings towards each other. Also some events prior to the family conference have been revealed which are important tips. Some may see the romance parts sort of unnecessary but do keep in read more

Just a notice, I have also read Episode 2 of the visual novel, but I have not seen the anime. This is also my first review. I'll try to be as descriptive as possible. If you have not read Episode 1, spoilers from it WILL be included in this review.

Story (9) - Welcome to the second question arc of Umineko. If you're reading this review, then that means you know the story already: The Ushiromiya family is called to a family meeting, a typhoon shows up, and the people of Rokkenjima start dying off in a sick ritual to revive a witch.

I ,quite frankly ,love the Umineko series .I haven't read the VN or watched the anime but I can say that this manga is a great piece of work when looking at how the story pans out .This is a review done after my second read of Episode 2 .I'm going to try and criticize it as much as I can.

Story - 8
Strictly speaking ,rating the story of Umineko's episodes individually might be a bit tricky considering that they are all part of one major sequence of events .So by seeing this as a sequel and an episode prior to episodes 3 through 8 I read more
