Zoicite☆For all I carry are murdered
I posted my first spot on reaction to Umineko on my facebook, however I will repeat it to all of my LJ friends.

"That was the greatest last episode of logic-fail on the face of the planet". I mean, it had always been ridiculous with Battler trying to prove that witches do not exist, but if you take it from this standpoint... Beatrice is saying "I DID IT!" and Battler is putting his fingers in his ear and going 'lalalalala I can't hear you!"

And his explanations in the last episode at a certain point just seemed to be all about him spouting non-logic. I think that is what Beatrice gave him, the non-logic words, just so that Battler could feel special.. yeah that's it.

I am not saying that it was bad. Of course not. But there was so much open-endedness in that series that I just hope that they make a S2. I still like Battler/Beatrice, quite a bit in fact and their allure didn't go down, I still ship them like crazy because they really just DESERVE each other. They can play chess for an eternity in hell and it'd just be absolutely marvelous, with Ronove serving them tea.. maybe Sebastian too if you approve the inappropriate usage of CROSSOVERS.

I did like the end with Maria, in fact I thought that was the most satisfying part of the end of that series, where Maria is like "OH YAY I CAN GO TO THE PLACE WHERE WELL-ADJUSTED CHILDREN GO TO". Though granted, there is just something about her that grates on my nerves and that whole uwah-uwah thing, yeah.. it was annoying.

The characters were awesome. Not on the same par with Higurashi characters, who toward the end I really just adored to all get out, but then you got to know every part of those characters.. their hopes and their fears. You didn't really get to know Beatrice and Battler in that intimate sense.. not in the anime. (I'm sure it's different in the game) but I think that with Umineko, the strength was the game, and the instances of trickery that the two used against each other.. not to mention the couples are pretty sweet.

So time will tell if we get a second season. I hope so. Until then, Shuu and I are going to watch that anime about bread, you know what I'm talking about. We need to watch something hilarious now after that. (Well Umimeko was hilarious.. just in an entirely different way.)

All these tags, they all definitely apply to this post, and this series!

Just one point, not all the red truth is said in the anime... so it kinda makes arguments lacking :/

Really, there's a fair amount of stuff/info left out of the anime. Look into the Visual Novels~ :3 (even if it's just watching vids of 'em on youtube, its worth it!)

Oh I know that the series is more complete with the game.. and that it's way better. I'm not arguing with that. I enjoyed it quite a bit and I wasn't trying to say that it wasn't good, just that the anime was ridiculous!

I'd love to see Knox if we get another season. ;3;

All the last episode needed was the 'small bombs' argument for me and I'd be happy. And they did. And I was happy.

It's good that you watched the anime before looking at the sound novel. You get more enjoyment that way. :3

Oh gods, the small bombs thing just killed me. Oh I think that Battler-Logic is special indeed. It made me weep tears of joy when he said that. I think that it was the horror of seeing his girlfriend being maimed before his eyes that caused the logic-failure. Like the mainframe had broken down or something. POOR BATTLER!

Oh, his logic is so very very very special. He reminds me too much of Phoenix Wright from the Ace Attorney series...only difference is that Phoenix happens to be right half of the time, but we really can't say that about Battler yet since we do not have a solution yet. But it's still LOL worthy.

Though I have to admit that I'm just way more curious about some of the other characters.. like Deranged Strawberry Shortcake and Bermkastel. Just especially with the ending sequence.. they had to take a cake-break from the entire Higurashi/Umineko world

I'm trying not to say that I don't ship Miyo and Rika what with this series, but I know that resolution is just set to fail epically.

Oh, they actually play a HUGE role in the next episode. It's wonderful.

The Deranged Strawberry Shortcake and Bernkastel are canon...trufax.

Yeah, well I know there are definitely alot of characters who have not made an appearance, that I know are around there. But I was seriously in love with the Seven Stakes. And hence always had to see them when they were on the screen in the intro.. and then I stayed for Ronove.. since he's made of epic too!

Also that icon.. has been SAVED! *so precious*

...however, once you reach game #5, you'll realize how DEEN fucked up the ending. :/ In the original, it doesn't end there (of course) and it doesn't implicate Beato as the bad guy.

All I can say is that after all those episodes, the ending was a big let down. No logic, no resolution. So, I hope that there will be a season two and in the meantime, I hope I don't eat any small bombs that have anything to do with trap x.
