I guess if we want her to like Lambda, I’m gonna have to start making her switch to Ryukishi’s sprites whenever she’s one screen lol.


Lambda is great though. Just wait until the end. She'll love Lambda by the end. Lambda is the real MVP.

K: Yes. It’s Groundhog’s Day and I’m on my 5 billionth loop
A: *cackles* You’re doing surprisingly well, mentally speaking.

So you're the witch who have lived for 13.888.888 years? That's pretty impressive.

I don't know where I put Ep 6 last time I did a ranking, but the more I think about it, the more I think it might be my favorite. I know, I know, I change my mind every time I'm asked. But damn, Ep 6 has some good moments

- Erika trolling, including duct tape and killing everyone
- love duel
- "even if you join us, there are only 17 people"

Yeah, it's pretty good. Though I don't like Erika's meta trolling with Battler and Beato.

(Kira note: I guess she’s talking about a forum meme I’m unaware of. Apparently in some Disney movies, a very minor character will break the fourth wall, and never be seen again. She’s joking that Ange is at risk of being ‘taken away.’)

Now I'm intrigued. Can you ask her what are some examples she remember?

I think Arria will come around on Lambda. It took me a while too, tbf, although I also didn't immediately dislike her as strongly as she did.

Hehe. I was pretty proud of that joke! Right when Arria said it, I remembered that we were reading on Groundhog's Day and I made the joke without skipping a beat. I'm rarely able to make a comeback so quickly.

Yeah, it's pretty good. Though I don't like Erika's meta trolling with Battler and Beato.


I used to hate Erika. Then I loved her. Now I self-insert as her since my name is Erika and it's led to some... odd moments. There's a line in Ep 6 where she tells Battler to beg to wear a dog collar and it uhh... kinda makes me feel funny things. >_>

Now I'm intrigued. Can you ask her what are some examples she remember?


I asked her about it, since I didn't know what she was going on about either lol. Apparently the whole joke is just this post:

Day 21 (2/19/2018)

We start with cute Stakes doing cute things

Oh god I didn’t remember that line about Mammon burning books so no one else can read them after she’s done with them. That makes her line last session a bit more depressing. Last time we read, there was a scene of Ange studying in the bathroom and Mammon asked why she was in here. “Do people burn books in this world?”
A: I can very much appreciate the desire to own and read every book you come across.

Ange: As long as the Stakes don’t make me wear their outfits
A: Well, as long as fanart exists… and those outfits are cute and sexy.

A: It’s like instead of summoning friends, she got puppies. You tried to get furniture, but you got Golden Retrievers!

Sakutaro gets glomped again
A; You could have at least waited for him to go through puberty instead of, ya know, small child molested by demon Stakes
Belphegor: Your luck ran out when you showed up while all Seven Sisters were gathered! Give up and let us hug you!
A: This is what happens when the villain sells out!

A: Does it bother anyone else that the furniture has more personality than the witch that summoned it? By a wide margin!

Well that's what husbands are for...lol jk. Maybe. idk I've never been married.

So that's what those home improvement shows are talking about.

I mean... I'm not LEGALLY married either. But that doesn't stop me from doing what you suggest, Raka. :p

I cackled at your home improvement joke. My grandparents used to watch shows like that and they were so damn boring, I wouldn't be surprised if the furniture they made had more personality than the hosts.

Maria has a happy, derpy face talking about her inability to concentrate
A: Gee, I can’t imagine why! *imitates her face* I mean, I like your sprite, and she looks so damn happy, but so damn dumb at the same time.

Maria: I can remember anything about magic, but nothing boring
A: You’re right. She’s really autistic.
A: This also doesn’t bode well for either of us
K: I mean, I read that line and I’m thinking… yup. Been there done that.
A: Same here. Just silently groaning to myself.

We f*** us sideways. We literally spent 5 minutes trying to suss out the word for gun that Maria said she instead used ‘rifle’ which involved us looking at kanji, searching for them, and then looking for the pronunciation: Teppou. Then the next page, Maria explains it perfectly. God damn it.

Maria: Maybe I would have had more magical friends at a witch school!
A: Well you have the stuffie. Also, I think you ARE the magical friend.
Maria: Sakutaro is all I need
K: yeah, she gets it!
Maria then lists her other friends i.e. stuffed animals.
A: Oooh, I’m seeing where this is going. Didn’t you say to pay attention to them?
K: Yeah. Also, she has a seal. That’s f***ing cute. (I love seals). I wonder what her capybara is named.

A: Maria ‘giving’ Ange the seven sisters is like this right? I have a cousin! Here you go! *hands me her mini-pie*
K: What do you mean? Your cousin is a pie? (I’m just f***ing with her. I get where she’s coming from)
A: I mean like… Ange just has a pile of stakes in her bag, right?
K: the stake of Mammon is the only one. She’s just headcanoning the rest
A: That’s still f***ed up.
K: Also, that reminds me that I went back to look up which stake was used to pierce who in Ep 3, and Mammon’s stake was the one to kill Kyrie.
A: *groan* This keeps getting darker.
K: Here ya go! This is the murder weapon we used to kill your mom!
A: I mean, it’s like she said. They’re furniture, and she doesn’t blame them for killing her family. But that’s still darker in hindsight. And didn’t they say the stake was still a little bloody? So it’s her mom’s blood.
K: Yeah, true.
A: I thought Kyrie was killed by Envy last episode. Leviathan
K: Yeah, I thought so too which is why I looked it up. The wiki said she was stabbed with Mammon. Maybe she was killed with Leviathan, but they took it out and stabbed her with Mammon. Or maybe it was just symbolic of her fight over the concept of Envy, but in the end she was stabbed with Mammon’s stake instead.
A: If you win a fight with the concept of Envy by being more envious, you have kinda lost… something. I don’t think that’s a victory. If you are that much of a broken person that the concept of Envy is less envious of you… I mean, I say this with love, because Kyrie is my favorite, but damn…
(We talk for a bit about how I got the information from the wiki, but I didn’t see it mentioned in the game itself, so if the wiki’s wrong, I wouldn’t know).
I tried looking in other videos, in the credits for Ep 3 where it usually says so-and-so was stabbed by the Stake of X, but I couldn’t find any version that did that with Ep 3. It just said “Kyrie, killed on the sixth twilight.”
So now I’m coming to you guys… was it said in some other episode or in a different version who got spiked with which stake? Where did the wiki gets its information? I find it curious that the wiki does it for the first three games, but not the others, so I doubt they just made it up.

Maria: I’m sure you’ll be able to give birth to friends you’ll like, Ange.
A: This is word-for-word what happened in a let’s play. Her name was Angie Gallant, and at one point her character got pregnant and she made jokes about how she was happy she’d finally have someone to talk to (it was an otome game and the male she accidentally married was a terrible husband)

Arria sent me a text this morning. She put her thinking cap on, it seems

"New crazy shower theory thoughts theory for Umineko but first I need info. What symbols make up Ushiromiya and what do they mean? Also in Japanese do they use separate kanji for shrine and temple or are they both represented by 'miya'? You told me during the 2nd episode to think of what Shannon's little mirror episode could represent and while the most likely option is her smuggling the killer onto Rokkenjima, I also like it being representative of her breaking the Ushiromiya family. Which she is doing by letting "Beatrice" in as well as "stealing" one of the possible heirs. But my symbolic nonsense only makes sense is ushiromiya uses the 'miya' kanji."

I wonder how I should respond to this. I think I'll give her the information she requested on kanji. There's like four different kanji I can think of at the top of my head for shrines/temples, with miya (宮) being just one. Don't they call the destroyed shrine on the island 'yashiro' (社)? I'll not say anything regarding her idea about Shannon. Maybe just praise her for doing some deep thinking.

Well, it'll get explained later on so her thinking about it is not a wasted effort at least.

...that's pretty messed up for an otoge!

In other news, I found a picture of Nanjo while watching YouTube videos:
