Manga review: Umineko no Naku Koro ni Ep 1

Umineko no Naku Koro ni Ep 1 theme 5
Wtf, don’t get it, but this will probably be in one of the later episodes

Wow, this manga. Originally a game and has also an anime adaption. So it’s quite succesfull. I only heard that the manga was less fun or something or some didn’t even know of its existence. Well, the game is I think translated now. I think fan translation…. I don’t know for sure. However because I didn’t really know anything and was just interested I decided to read it. Good luck with reading.

Opinion:

Well, first thing I’m going to say is that this manga was so confusing! When I was nearing the end I finally understood what was going on. But yeah, currently when I post this I will be watching a walkthrough, because I don’t even know where to buy this and I never really buy games so dunno if I will. But onto the story. I heard the places in the story were based on real places in Japan. I think that’s cool. The plot was original, but I think you have to read some chapters 2 times before you fully understand it. The art is very dark. It really is good for the manga. I’ll give this a 7/10, because the plot is just very confusing. It’s supposed to be an intro to let you see the character relationships, but still. It’s a bit hard. I would recommend this to those who like mystery and dont mind tragedy and horror/thriller. I hvaen’t watched the anime, but I am curious.
