So I thought I'd just put this down here since I don't really see a full explanation else where, although I imagine someone else has already come up with it so call me a slowpoke or whatever. Naturally spoilers for whole series should be expected.


First and foremost what we know as the meta world, and what I'm talking about in particular is how the actually story unfolds as the reader first picks up Umineko. Mostly Battler vs Beatrice in the tearoom and all those scenes that follow afterwards.

When you think about some theories that are made by readers, you may recall a few radical ones that choose to ignore all of the red and meta world and only focus on the fragments, as they believe those are the only pieces that are real in the prime(world of 1998). But once you think like that, the logic would then become, aren't the EPs1-6 also just written by individuals and shouldn't also be taken seriously? At which point it becomes pointless for there is no longer anything to explain the game.

So while thinking this, concluded that the meta world surely has a place within the realms of Prime. We know that, well at the very least the events in Ep1-2 were written by Yasu. Then the next 3 were written by Ikuko (Ep6 was Touya I recall). While some argue they may be the same person, let's skip over that for now. What matters is that during the early episodes red truth is giving out with confidence that there is an answer to be solved, so Ikuko simply taking the role of the witch would work too.

So to get to the exact explanation, the events in the meta world seem to follow a pattern that can fit into the Prime world. We know later on that Battler gets amnesia and lives with Ikuko, so its a fair assumption that the meta world is just a dramatization of future events. To be more specific, Battler reading the games over and declaring that it can't be a witch and there must be a culprit to the fate which befell his family. Over the course of the next few games in the meta world Battler meets other characters who take the name of Beatrice, or at least is a witch spawned from the gameboard. Notably Ange and Eva, who both just

As a long-time Umineko fan, I'm pretty sure I figured out Umineko. The entire thing is just a game of pretend that Rika and Satoko are playing on a playground somewhere. Rika is Bernkastel and Satoko is Lambda. Everything, including everything that happens to everyone and every Umineko character and every piece they have on the board is literally them just playing a very, very advanced game of cops and robbers. The witch's dimension is just the metaphysical representation of their shared imagination.

It even explains why the plot is retarded and they all act like children even though they're supposed to be super old: they're like fucking 10.

Actually, I really did end up figuring it all out.

[4:09:39 AM] Kay: umineko is unreliable narrator in the literal sense. All of the episodes are the accounts, called forgeries, of what happened during the massacre from the people present, except they all have differing viewpoints, because they're ALL insane
[4:10:19 AM | Edited 4:29:09 AM] Kay: it's all a combined presentation of different surviving character's warped perspective on what happened.
[4:13:05 AM] Kay: a lot of the umineko characters are lies
[4:13:31 AM | Edited 4:29:20 AM] Kay: sometimes the forgery-writer for the current scene splits themselves into several people to divert blame
[4:13:57 AM | Edited 4:14:37 AM] Kay: like when you say my friend of a friend did this or wants to know that
[4:14:06 AM] Kay: a lot of the umineko characters are that
[4:14:13 AM] Kay: it's very difficult to tell which people are real and which people aren't
[4:14:15 AM | Edited 4:29:31 AM] Kay: i won't spoil it all but
[4:15:03 AM | Edited 4:29:48 AM] Kay: you can tell which people are and aren't real by looking at which people vanish or are replaced with other people
[4:15:20 AM] Kay: to REALLY figure out umineko you have to play the games at least 5 times, if not 10 or more
[4:15:23 AM] Kay: then you start REALLY getting it
[4:18:26 AM] Kay: the depth it goes to is crazy I'll lay some shit on you to think about
[4:18:49 AM | Edited 4:29:59 AM] Kay: this is ONE OF the 20+ conflicting red truths presented in umineko

So in the very end, who was the person Battler loved all along?

Yasu, or Beatrice?

Which Battler?
>> No. 215 edit
Both, because I refuse to accept Ryukishi's argument that a person's body can't be held accountable for the actions of the mind inhabiting it. That's called the insanity defense.
Because Yasu loved everybody, I affectionately refer to Umineko as the Sayo Yasuda Dating Game.

>Battler doesn't give two shits about Sayo in the past.
>Beatrice is his ideal woman.
>Scenes in Chiru show him talking to Beatrice and he doesn't mention Shkannon or whatever at all.

I think Sayo pretty much had no choice but to 'become' Beatrice in order for Battler to love her, it was said in Episode 7. Battler actually never loved Sayo herself.

Hey guys, I'm new here, but I want to ask about something that's been bugging for quite some time since I finished the Umineko novels. In the end of the EP4 teaparty, when Beato is impaled, she used a magic when she lifted her arms up, and then only one of her arms fell. Afterwards, in the EP4 ???, even Lambdadelta states that the fact that only one of Beato's arms fell means that she still has one trick up her sleeve. I don't if I'm just too dumb and didn't notice when that was explained, but just what is that trick up Beato's sleeve? Why did she make that last magic? After I finished the novels, I felt like everyone just forgot about that detail. Could someone explain that to me?
>> No. 219 edit
Hmm, well I haven't read that part in a long time, but if I had to make a guess it sounds like it would be Shkanon in general. While most(if not all) of Battler's answers to the howdunits are said to be false, she naturally doesn't want to admit the whole Yasu plot so easily, for it is her heart, and thus Lambda calls it a "trick up her sleeve".

So can someone explain to me Hideyoshi's murder behind the closed door with a chain in Episode 5?

It's barely even touched on in the VN, heck, it's not even mentioned in slightest at the Court of Illusions. This second twilight has really been bugging me for quite some time.

In fact, while we're on the topic, who is the culprit of the 5th game? It can't be Shkannon (or can it?), so what the fuck went down there?

>by pure logic.
We all know where applying pure logic to the red gets you.

If that proves Shannon is the one on the phone, then Shannon can't be Kanon.

Hideyoshi's death seems pretty obviously faked from ep5 alone:

1) He fiddles with the lock initially, expecting it to be locked from the start, and accidentally locks it first. He seems unconcerned at this point about much of anything, even casual.

2) He puts the chain on the door after locking it, then closes the window shutters for no clear reason.

3) He flops noisily on the bed and starts noticeably sobbing about George, after seeming entirely undisturbed by his "death" before that point.

4) He suddenly "notices" a person in the room (where did they come from?) and asks "Who are you?" There shouldn't really be anyone on the island he doesn't know at this point other than possibly "Beatrice."

5) Hideyoshi gets into an audible struggle with the "culprit" at the same time someone is trying to get inside the room from outside.

6) THE CULPRIT DOES NOT LEAVE. Eva has run off to get help, so there shouldn't be anyone directly outside, and the window shutters could be opened if the "culprit" wanted to depart through a window.

7) Nobody else is found anywhere in the room and they deliberately overlook Natsuhi's hiding place for no apparent reason.

Not really.

Let's say we have a character with the name Jake Andrews. I tell Jake I like pie. I could say I told Jake I like pie and I told Andrews I like pie and both are true.
>> No. 195 edit
The culprit was hidden under the bed. Killed Hideyoshi.

The room was never investigaded by the detective, so the culprit could just hide inside.

Also, with "the Fall". The culprit did hide 4 cards in the room. After Natshuhi told her favorite season, he just said the location of the Fall card.
