If it makes you feel any better, I'm in the middle of Ch 3 and I'm also completely bamboozled by that stuff. Like, if it's real, then doesn't that mean Battler has already lost? But if it's not real, then what even is it? It feels like too much happens in that tea-party layer for it to not have some grounding in the story. It's a wild ride.Wow I'm liking umineko very much, even if I'm very confused, still on chapter 2 questions.
In particularI always worry to be stupid and don't understand stuff I should know in these VNthe "meta" stuff of saying the truth in red letters. what
Yeah exactly my feelings ahaha, but I'm loving it, battle of wits are my favourites.If it makes you feel any better, I'm in the middle of Ch 3 and I'm also completely bamboozled by that stuff.

I think that is how it is supposed to look: It was shown the same way when I played the game about 2½ years ago.Yeah exactly my feelings ahaha, but I'm loving it, battle of wits are my favourites.
A bit spoilerish but a technical question, is it normal that the graphic is loaded this way?
Good, I need more friends to gush about Aokana with. Do it for best teacher!
Aokana is great.Good, I need more friends to gush about Aokana with. Do it for best teacher!
Yeah, I'd say the VN's biggest flaw is that some routes just feel more like an after thought compared to others, mostly because it tried to tell a completely unique story for each route and you can see the consequences for that where things just explicitly play out differently for no reason and character motivations just stop making sense or are explained away by 1-2 lines of dialogue and makes the hanging plotlines from the common route just kind of fester. The Rika route is most suspect for doing this, though thankfully covered for itself by having some very fun banter between the cast. I'd still say I enjoyed all the routes for the most part, with some more than others of course.Aokana is great.
I had issues with the routes, but the main and supporting cast carried it through even the weaker plot-lines.
It is just a shame that Satouin didn't get a route, she was really a stand-out character.
I can't find a VNDB entry for this game.Another mystery VN by Fruitbat Factory?
After ENIGMA: and SeaBed, that is probably going to be a day 1 purchase for me.
I also kinda want to throw them a penny after they did that amazing Corona give-away.
Google licentia poetica.I'm at the third chapter of Umineko Questions arc. I'm really enjoying it, even if I keep getting confused sometimes.
LikeAs always, if it's more clear later I will continue without an answer right now lolWhy in the third game they talk about whether a 19 person exist or not if in the previous game Beatrice showed herself at the beginning?
So it's basically a plot hole?Google licentia poetica.
I'll pay any amount for my queen Misaki. LETS FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOO!The previous survey results regarding EX2 are also in, with an overwhelming 97% voted for more content with higher game cost.
That's not because of the region locking in Europe, but probably because Frontwing is a lot more popular, especially in China.Region locking seems to have worked out so great for Aniplex:
The story is, in the developer's own words, about the 'warmth between people'.
Warmth, not the burning passion between lovers, or the pungent kick of an espresso, but the kind of warmth that silently infuses in the dark of night, offering a candle to show the light. It's like a slow-brewed pour-over coffee on a winter's night. A warmth that does not choke, or fade away even when they are long gone. It's simply a story that breaks down the feeling of love, regret, loss into its basic components - A story about the human condition.
The discrepancy in China is interesting. I thought Liar-soft was pretty well regarded VN developer, but maybe they got more attention in Western scene due to some of their work being available in English. Have to admit their products are niche and unlikely to be competitive with titles intended for the mainstream.That's not because of the region locking in Europe, but probably because Frontwing is a lot more popular, especially in China.
Almost all of the reviews are in Chinese (127 of 135 for ATRI, 9 of 10 for Adabana) and ATRI only has two more English reviews than Adabana (3 vs 1):
