Ok, I know I mention Umineko in the other threads a bit and maybe I should have put this in with the other spoilers thread but................ Who else's brain has exploded from the whole, "Higurashi never existed and was just a game played by two witches, one who controlled Rika and the other who controlled Takano." Also, please let it be known that I haven't played it myself yet, even though I DO have umineko installed on my computer the darn thing wont work! I have just found out all off stuff from fellow fanatics and what not.


^^^^ Takano's witch form ^^^^^^

Yes it's a game, and you can find the link for the manga in the other thread. Trust me, everyone freaked when they found out about it. Here's Rika's witch form, called "Berkastel" the last name of dark Rika:

There's also a new Loli:

There is also an english patch coming soon for both episodes 1 & 2 of the game. (Like Higurashi, it has several differnt episodes/installments). There's no demo version of it up for download though, like with onikakushi, so I guess you guys would either have to torrent the game or buy the disk, before you could replace the onscripter.

Lol I was so annoyed when I saw that in the game... I don't like how it was just a game between the witches. Anyways there are only two chapters out so far, so something else might happen and it might end up being something else.

It's really interesting that the drawings are getting much better and realistic than those round, 4 finger drawings he did in Higurashi. But he says that the drawings are getting much like how his original drawings are.

In Umineko he draws everything much more realistic..
example:

And their eyes aren't as round anymore... they're more realistic and most of the characters actually have noses now. xD

But I love the so called "07th" style.... It's more fun to watch, and not be like one of those early works of Naoki Urasawa, where he tries to make it complicated as possible, including the design and the story. But I love his recent works like Pluto or 20th Century Boys.
