can we have a moment to appreciate the umineko pachinko’s animation omg
Extracted the opening movie from this video so I could overlay the opening music and zoom it in. I tried to upload it in a good quality, I’m sorry :c.
I get a snippy response from a blog that felt the need to respond to my personal post despite not even having a full page of blog content and being on Tumblr for the first time in eleven months
and yet I still have no response as to how anyone could’ve been the culprit besides Shannon and Kanon…
“deaths of everyone besides Shannon in the storage shed" He didn’t. He desribes only his parents, also he says that there are more death then he has fingers on one hand :D http://cs413821.vk.me/v413821998/51da/8MjajJw-xk0.jpg
“death-faking drug/insuln” theory is complete BS” Many mystery novels use them(http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=682797). If you don’t like fae death drugs, then you can simply go with sleeping pills.
your first link is showing up as a 404 not found?? Battler examines all the corpses (save Shannon) firsthand with his own eyes; his parents are simply the ones he fixates on because. well. yeah. dead parents. he verifies “a corpse” in Rosa’s clothes, and it can’t simply be someone else’s corpse because that’s already been explicitly forbidden with red.
yeah see he is literally recognizing people based off of their clothes (except, I guess, in Krauss’ case because only half of Krauss’ face was gone so he should’ve been easily identifiable), all except in the case of Shannon, where Hideyoshi and Kanon are “conveniently” obscuring her corpse from sight on the opposite side of the shed.
and yes, many mysteries use death faking drugs when they specifically don’t adhere to Knox. however, Knox’s 4th has been used and upheld by Dlanor multiple times, and Beatrice said as early as ep 2 that she abides by Knox rules. Knox 4th states: “It is forbidden for unknown drugs or hard to understand scientific devices to be used.” Nanjo, the only medical professional featured among the main cast, is asked several times if there are any drugs at all that could fake death so perfectly—and he says there are none.
any drugs therefore used to “fake death” which wouldn’t violate Knox are limited to the one most commonly used to put people in comas: insulin. and purposely inducing an insulin coma results in brain damage, physical deterioration to the muscles, and actual death. it’s simply not feasible for a mystery.
other drugs which are “unknown” but “could fake death” cannot be used in the context of Umineko. if anything, every single time a “death-faking drug” has been suggested among any of the cast, the theory has been shot down, scorned, and severely implied by just about every character to have nothing to do with the main story.
sleeping pills do NOT fake death, holy shit. if you overdose on enough of them, then, like with insulin, you’re probably just going to wind up legitimately killing yourself. someone who’s sleeping would still obviously show signs of a pulse and deep, heavy, consistent breathing—unless they’ve overdosed, which again, is NOT something Nanjo would just be able to “wake them up from.”
my grandfather is a pharmacist. my grandmother was a nurse, two of my aunts have been to pharmacy school. I know about medicine, and I know there aren’t any drugs that can “fake the symptoms of death” without pretty much dragging you right to death’s door. any such drugs that could keep a person physically and mentally healthy are beyond the reaches of current scientific understanding, and as such—would violate Knox. which would be fine in a mystery which hasn’t consistently upheld knox’s 4th, but alas, Umineko is NOT the mystery you’re looking for in that case.
My favorite Dragon-Type is Giratina. I remember totally stumbling on it by accident in Pokemon Diamond for the first time…. I just went NOPE and left HAHAHA, Giratina freaked me out. But I guess that’s part of why I love it so much?

Well, this isn’t exactly how I wanted Battler and Shannon’s little chat to be but at least in Ep 8 manga version they talked. It’s more than what they do in the visual novel.
