    If you ask me, this is a long introduction to the new Episode: Alliance of the Golden Witch. Whilst the others episodes were focused on Battler and his duel against Beato, this one begins with Ange, his little sister, who was left behind after everybody died in the Ushiromiya Mansion, 12 years ago.

Whilst the others episodes were focused on Battler and his duel against Beato, this one begins with Ange, his little sister, who was left behind after everybody died in the Ushiromiya Mansion, 12 years ago. Both Eva and Ange suffered the loss and grief of their loved ones, and so Eva gets Ange’s custody but instead of treating her like a daughter, she often blames her for everything that happened, even if it wasn’t her fault. After Eva dies, she gives no answers to Ange and instead, she only passes her curse to this young woman: to be the new head of the Ushiromiya family (with her cursed money and all), and to become the next Golden Witch. Thus, we get to see a bit of Ange’s past, how she dealt with bullies all her life and how she became a lonely kid. That is until Maria’s journal comes into the picture. You see, Maria was a young witch apprentice, so she had the power to create things from zero –a quality that apparently is quite unique. Thanks to this, she ‘tells’ wonderful stories through her journal, and somehow Ange gets to read them. It will be her only solace. Eventually, Ange becomes a witch apprentice too and as the new Golden Witch, she can summon furniture such as the sisters that are named after the seven deadly sins, who were previously furniture of Beatrice too. Anyway, with the help of Lady Bernkastel, Ange will be able to help Battler against Beato and their wicked game shall have a new plot twist. I really cannot wait to read the next volume! Note aside: my friend and I just found out that every Episode is illustrated by a different mangaka, that’s why some styles are more redefined and others. This one is especially good to Battler (now he looks quite handsome himself) but maybe that’s just me.

    In this volume(s), we get Ange's back story and that's about it. There's hardly any of the dynamic we've come to know and love between Battler and Beatrice this time around, which is a shame. I like Ange, and I like her back story (and the peek we get at Maria's too), but it seemed to drag on and on. Also, I kept looking and looking at Ange, trying to figure out what was off about her character design.

Also, I kept looking and looking at Ange, trying to figure out what was off about her character design. I thought it was the clothes at first creating some illusion (the jacket's bulky with bell sleeves and a flouncy skirt that doesn't match the top's bulk), but then I figured it out. It's her hips and the way her legs attach to her body. She's got a thigh gap a mile wide, but it makes no sense with her shape otherwise. I don't think her legs would actually attach to her torso. She doesn't stand in a way that you can see the thigh gap often, but the inconsistency is there regardless of how she stands. It's just most obvious when her legs are together. It's not too big a deal most of the time, but it's a bit disconcerting during full body shots. Her head also seemed too small for her body in some panels, but I think that that's from the bulky jacket she's wearing most of the time. It seemed consistent with scenes where she's in lighter clothing, and in those her head was fine. Umineko has weird art sometimes. I guess it just stood out more to me in this volume than in some of the previous ones.

    This is one of my favorite arcs of the series - there are only a few others that reach the sheer level of emotion and grandiosity that this one does. I think it's also relatively safe to say that this is the arc where magic is overall given the freest reign over the plot (The only competitor for that title might be the third arc), and the grandiosity of its tone is suitably strong. This adaptation is a very good one.

This adaptation is a very good one. They made the interesting choice of rearranging a lot of the scenes this time to give a nice long prologue and actually end this volume in roughly the place where both the anime and the visual novel started. I actually liked this decision a lot, as it cut out a lot of the random bouncing between places and times without a ton of segway that existed in both the VN and anime. It also makes the pacing a noticeable improvement. The artwork is beautiful, and there are some extra little details that are thrown into some of the background scenes that I thought were very nice touches. I'm really looking forward to jumping into the second volume.

    Larga introducción sobre lo que pasó fuera de Rokkenjima y en la actualidad de 1998. Ange tiene el diario de María y con eso sabemos cómo percibía el mundo. Me gusta el arco de Ange porque comienza a dar respuestas de qué pasó ahora que hay una sobreviviente y una heredera de toda la fortuna.

    "Gretel" is definitely my favorite character now, and I can already see so much angst ahead for her with Battler, who annoys me but damn, now that "Gretel" is in the picture . . .

    Imagine reading some manga adaptation and not the actual visual novel. The only purpose of the manga is to use it as a shortcut for writing

    First off before considering this book series I should warn you like its Higurashi counterpart this series balances between dark and light elements and the changes of artwork occur as the truths of the book are revealed. Then again what is truly truth when seen through your individual perspectives? Also don't be surprised if you see gory illustrations, references to Christian hell, or cute girls going through this series since it seems to be a common enough theme by Ryukishi07. The story of Umine First off before considering this book series I should warn you like its Higurashi counterpart this series balances between dark and light elements and the changes of artwork occur as the truths of the book are revealed. Then again what is truly truth when seen through your individual perspectives? Also don't be surprised if you see gory illustrations, references to Christian hell, or cute girls going through this series since it seems to be a common enough theme by Ryukishi07. The story of Umineko is an interesting series revolving around the a group of family members who make their way to an isolated island owned by the head of the family. After they get there a storm comes in cutting off all communications and travel to the outside words and a riddle found within the mansion begins coming true as family members are murdered in in normally grotesque ways. The strange thing is the island is under the control of a great witch whom the head of the family loves and she has control of all elements up to and including time and life itself for everyone involved in the story leading to a complete reset on the island as she competes against one of residents in a struggle of belief and reason. At the end of the 3rd arc a new player was introduced by the miracle witch Bernkastel who is interested in the golden witch Beatrice who is responsible for everything on the island. This arc appears to primarily help us understand the new player Angie who is tied to the family unable to escape their fates thus far on the island. By the end of this volume the th game will finally begin as we once again delve into what is really truth. There are many interesting moments but if I would have to choose my favorite part of the book would have to say it was when Ronove tells Beatrice that that her opponent is morose so she should go to him and cheer him up so that day's game will not be completely one side. The ensuing scene is one to remember. :)
