Umineko No Naku Koro Ni Episode 3

July 16, 2009

I have two problems with Umineko: Eva is too much stuck in her Takano-voice, and Maria is trying too hard to sound like Rena. Especially Maria gets on my nerves. I’m not really bothered with how she’s a little girl, but the way the camera keeps giving her close-ups when she’s making Higurashi-faces for no reason.

I mean, one thing is that you can almost hang a sign on her with “Yo people, I am evil”, but the stranger thing is that nobody even seems to notice this. I mean, doesn’t anyone find it weird that a nine-year-old can quote and redraw exact passages on the bible?

But yeah, apart from that I’m getting really fond of this series: it’s basically one really big murder mystery so far in which the characters themselves try to find out what the heck is going on. This episode even continued to reduce the body count by killing off Eva and her husband. That killed off just about all of the direct heirs and their partners, aside from Natsuhi. Also, if the killer was just after the money, then why did Gouda and Sharon also die?

Right now, the most suspicious ones are Natsuhi, because she now is the most likely to succeed Kinzou and has shown to be the least emotionally stable of the cast, and Genji, who was alone outside of Eva’s room for a while and therefore could have made the blood drawing. Since the chain wasn’t cut or anything, it was very likely that Eva’s body already lied on the bed when he opened the door, but he skillfully hid it from Kanon.
