Umineko: When They Cry Volume 1 & 2 Review [Capsule Computers]

Travis Bruno of Capsule Computers writes:

"Umineko: When They Cry combines complex situations and physiological puzzles with suspenseful horror in what could have been an outstanding anime. What with its excellent production values and impressive voice work, the series has a lot going for it. Unfortunately that potential is squandered thanks to horrible execution and plot development. While NIS America’s impressive bonuses for the set do create a great collector’s item, the amount of plot holes, poor explanations and unsatisfying ending will leave many viewers disappointed as they think of what could have been." (Anime, Umineko no Naku Koro Ni, Umineko: When They Cry) 6/10

Is this related to Higurashi?

Unfortunately yeah, but this show is pretty bad. I watched it originally back in 2009 and although this may have the uncensored gore for the more violent deaths, it doesn't make up for the fact that the ending is garbage and the series itself is pretty bad overall. If you played the games it might be better but it's just a bad anime on its own, not worth the same category as higurashi.

Very true the game is better and provides more answers, but i mean i wouldn't say the ending is garbage, the anime did get alot of things wrong. However unless you played the game you may not realize they also got alot of things right. take this for example "Plus, many of his answers to the murders are practically laughable and taken at face value which will leave many with an unsatisfied feeling to the puzzles Battler tries to solve." there is a very good reason to why his "solutions" were quite bleh. Here is a link to a fandub of ending, much better imo. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
the voice actors could of been better, but eh take what you can get it ;c
