You know how in the anime of Umineko Nothing is very well explained, both destroying the first two scary EP of Umineko and then giving you like 1/4 of actaul useful information.
I fucking hate Umineko anime and studio deen.
But without Studio Deen with Higurashi (LOL I never figured out what was in the damn Ohagi), When They Cry fans would not exist period so.... Higurashi anime is okish. But it's the same thing... it lacks actaul Answers to many smaller question (other than the actaul culprit) and Depth and character of the actaul characters,,, I couldn't understand anything of Satoshi until I played Higurashi Meakish(sp?). and he is oh so fucking adorable I tell you Shion and Satoshi moment were abesoultely cute unlike the damn anime... D:<!!!
So What I am saying is that If you can Play the Higurashi VN... it is worth it, 10 times funnier, Meh... It is scary/disgusting but ONE sound is very low... too low to be scary, and more understandable...
Everybody is all about Umineko these days but I think you should give THE ORIGINAL WTC the beginning of of all the WTC a try... It is worth it.
PS: I eefing hate all the haters of the WTC VN's drawings... I find them cute.
