Recently, I finished watching Umineko no Nako Koro ni and got really into it. I love a good murder mystery, and this one kept repeating itself with witches and stuff to boot! I was impressed with Battler’s drive to prove that the murders were carried out by mortal means, and truthfully, hoped that they all could be since blaming everything on the supernatural is a bit of a cop out. In this series, there is the creepiest little girl I’ve ever seen in anime. Maria Ushiromiya is all kinds of fucked up, especially in the initial half of the series, but as the story progresses it’s really more evident that she’s like that due to heart-wrenching child abuse. Still…the faces she makes. I figured they need to be collected and shared! :D
Makes me wonder if I should also pursue Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, given that it’s the same creator, or if I should just continue to hold my breath and wait for Umineko no Naku Koro ni Chiru to become an anime.
