< report >What do you think is the best episode of Umineko no Naku Koro ni? For me my favorite Umineko episode was 6, with 5 close behind. I just loved the change to the formula, the twists and the character of Erika Furudo.

< report >My favorites were 5 and 2. Erika and Rosa were what kept me going through much of the rest.

< report >For me 5 and 6 were around the peak and then it nosedived at 7. (I'm aware this isn't a common opinion and if you think I'm horribly wrong or something you're... probably right!)

< report >It has been a great while since I read Umineko. I remember much about it as a whole and when I started to dislike it, but the parts I liked kind of mix together in my mind. I seem to remember Episode 3 as being the one I enjoyed the most while reading.

< report >Definitely enjoyed Requiem the most. Loved the theatrical setting, Clair's beautiful storytelling and the way she shows the reader the most important backstories, while still keeping them not too obvious... amazing.

< report >Unpopular opinion, I know - but I like the first because prologues are always best part of the novels for me. I like excitement of discovering new characters, novelty of the world/locations you are being acquainted with, and the sense of foreboding and building thick atmosphere the first episode excels at. Later, when you are getting more or less used to what you are reading - it won't be that exciting anymore whether you like it or not. At least it works like that in exactly my case.
That, and first episode is a feast for old classic detective connoiseurs - especially if you are missing the genre. Other episodes somehow departed from that genre to something else - except those with Erica's appearance - but then it loses its novelty already and atmosphere becomes more of an "artificial game" rather than genuine horror/drama which should always be a factor accompanying murders in great detectives IMO. The first episode was especially good in that sense.Last modified on 2022-09-22 at 00:58

< report >Oh yeah I've absolutely gotta concede that the first had a great horror atmosphere that the rest lacked.
