Umineko: When They Cry Chiru

released on Sep 15, 2009

Umineko no Naku Koro ni Chiru is the second half of the Umineko no Naku Koro ni series, and contains Episodes 5 to 8 of the story. Unlike the second half of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Umineko Chiru does not simply present direct solutions to the first four arcs, but instead gradually delves into the core of the story, revealing clues to its mysteries in the process. It is also referred to as When They Cry 4 in the overall When They Cry franchise.

wasn't a perfect story, but it was pretty damn good in my opinion.
i feel like people hating on chapter 8 suffer from little ceasers syndrome

not even duct tape can save this game's horrible 8th chapter

Ryukishi07 really snuck in a enemies to lovers trope in the middle of the most gruesome, appalling, grotesque, frightening, horrific, devoid of all hope, murder spree.

"I dedicate this tale to my beloved witch, Beatrice."

i'm not going to bullshit you. going in without any prior knowledge and without any extreme biases, the second half of umineko will constantly throw you. maybe not in the ways you might think, but at the heart. maybe you won't like every twist or vaguery, maybe you'll love how the story unfolds in all its strangeness and magic. i couldn't tell you what you'll think, especially not after everything that happens in the questions arc, because the foundations of a journey like the one this game takes you on are only the beginning, yet remain as important as every minute of its latter half. and if you don't like it at all, that's your right as the reader right? you get to choose--and isn't that the point?
