Description

Umineko no Naku Koro ni takes place in 1986 on October 4 and 5 on a secluded island called Rokkenjima (六軒島). The head of a wealthy family named Ushiromiya Kinzou, who lives on and owns Rokkenjima, is near death, and eleven of his family members arrive on the island to discuss how Kinzou's assets will be divided once he is dead. Also on the island are five of Kinzou's servants and his physician. After the eleven family members arrive, a typhoon traps them on the island and shortly after, people get mysteriously murdered.
