Umineko no naku koro ni - Review

Genres: Drama / Horror / Mystery 
No. of episodes: 26 
My rate: 6/10

Anime from the same authors as from Higurashi no naku koro ni. As I thought, lots of blood and the story repeats every few episodes but differently. I'm still confused •_• Engaging and Mysterious anime with some blood >:D But still I'm webit dissapointed as I think that Higurashi was much better but that's just my opinion. Some part/scenes of the anime have no particular point than to extend the series. Solving mysteries along with the characters was very cool adn engaging, but at times it confused me, as Batler tried to prove how there is no magic involved yet some of his contradictions were pointless. In addition, somehow, the series is connected to Higurashi.

It starts in 1986, in island named Rokkenjima owned by Kinzo, the head of the wealthy Ushiromiya family. All the members of the family visit the island as Kinzo will soon die. Adult members (his children) want to discuss how Kinzo's assets will be divided once he will be dead. Suddenly whole family is trapped in the island because of typhoon. Later one of the youngest member of the family, Maria Ushiromiya, receives a letter from a strange women that call herself Beatrice. Beatrice is a Gold Witch that once gived Kinzo lots of gold and that's why the Ushiromiya family is so rich. Maria reads the letter to all the family as she was told to.It states that Beatrice will take whole gold and money back and will kill all the family members; one by one. Nothing will happen only if witch's epitaph will be solved.
