continuing where we left off in the previous topic...

Battler proposes the idea that Rosa killed Maria on accident, then slipped and fell on the fence as she freaked out.
A: This was pretty much what I was about to suggest

Beatrice is trying the ol’ moemoe trick. Ugu it was just my disciple~
A: Why do you have to ask?! You were the one earlier who was like “Battler~ Battler honey, where are you. Oh, there you are. Stop oozing into the carpet!”

Battler: What is the point of those grotesque murders?
K: To arouse me
A: *chuckles*

A: This is literally going to someone’s house to play a board game, getting mad at them, then kicking them out of their own house.

Ronove says in red that their deaths were homicides.
A: Okay, finally. I can work with this.

There’s a background which shows golf clubs. I hadn’t noticed it before
A: Please tell me that at some point. Maybe not this game board, but maybe another one. Somewhere, someday, someone will get beaten to death with a golf club.
K: I don’t even think golf is ever mentioned once in the entire story

They state their alibis
Arria smirks. “Everyone but one walrus”
Then everyone else calls out Nanjo on being by himself
A: Although better bet is that Hideyoshi and Eva are in it together.

Expanding on what I said last thread:

https://rokkenjima.org/news-07th-live/

tl;dr WTC5 has like 8000 characters written for it, Ryuukishi took part of the ideas for it and made a sound drama coming out sooner called Haworthia which will have tie ins to WTC5, and an Umineko collection (similar to Higurashi Hou) is also announced and will contain a new Episode for Umineko that is set mid-Chiru.

I REALLY REALLY hope MangaGamer not only will be translating WTC5 (I imagine they probably will be) but that they'll be able to do it on pace with the Japanese releases. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE following another WTC as it comes out.

Awesome! I saw some pictures of characters from Haworthia but I don't know anything else about it. There were two characters whose faces reminded me of Shannon and Kanon, but I don't think it means anything. Just the look the artist was going for. But we'll see!

Indeed, I hope that whoever translates it does so at the same rate as the Japanese releases so that Arria and I can post and theorize along with the rest of the community.

The new Umineko episode intrigues me as well. I wonder what Ryukishi will put in it. If it's a Chiru episode, it will probably be more answers or backstory rather than a new gameboard. Although I'd be down for a new gameboard as well.

Some people think it might be Rokkenjima Prime in its entirety.

I dunno about that, but... maybe?

Hmm, I would be okay with that but... I feel like I understand Rokkenjima Prime, and giving a blatant answer also takes away from the... I dunno. Like, part of Ange's choice at the end is deciding if knowing the truth is really THAT important. I think learning the truth might destroy that a little bit. Bah, now I wonder if Ryukishi is writing it for the goats who don't "get it"

~~~

A: I am convinced that Eva did it. But I’m also convinced she has split personality. My previous theory that Battler did it and is covering his own crime is not quite right. Now I think Eva is doing all this and trying to hide her crimes.

George and Eva’s sprites are aligned in such a way that it looks like he’s rubbing his mom’s back as she has her mental battle with herself.

A: I’m at least happy that the magic-using voices in my head are saner than this.

Eva falls down and we see George’s hand
K: Now it looks like he was groping his mother
We both cackle
A: Alternatively, he was like *whump* (mimics pushing her over)

There’s discussion about how humans developed anti-magic to defend them from magical predators. We both feel it’s symbolic of “technological advancement” and we both bring up the old Arthur C. Clarke quote about sufficiently advanced technology being indistinguishable from magic. But it’s still interesting. We talk about some plants and bugs and such that have done similar things in developing toxins that kill the thing which would prey on them. Leads us to conclude that evolution is f***ing weird. I mean, we already knew that, but we had to reiterate it.

A: The problem with being pack animals is that our predators know we’re pack animals. We are strong as one, but get us alone and we’re weak.

I'm really curious what Arria is going to think of Ange's story in Ep4 honestly

That's a good point. I hadn't considered it. All I had thought about were the Maria scene and how Arria hates Maria so much.

Yessss, Raka we missed you. :D I knew you were busy, but I thought you had left us for good. :( In our most recent session, Arria made a walrus joke, then said that she "dedicated it to our fallen comrade, Raka."

So glad that you have returned to us.
