I was one of those people who loved Higurashi and shat all over Umineko, but once I sat down and read it again it was amazing to me. I was one of those goats that got mad that it shifted from murder mystery to dumb magic anime shit. But in the end I really loved all the crazy metaphors, picking apart the pieces of truth from the magic scenes, the way fantasy corresponded with non-fantasy, it was seriously an absorbing and unique read and I ended up speculating a lot more than I did with Higurashi. I also liked the mostly adult cast, Eva and Krauss ended up being some of my favorite characters.>>4038>Hurr, patriarchy.
Normally I'm the first to shit on SJWs but she had an actual valid reason to feel the way she did. No matter how hard she worked it wouldn't be recognized and she would just be told to learn her place and give up on being the successor. Especially frustrating when the successor was an incompetent idiot who failed at every business venture he undertook.
And I thought the ending was good. You don't get anything reading it from someone's synopsis, especially if they misinterpreted shit and are probably biased. In fact focusing on that part is missing the whole point R07 was trying to make. You are supposed to read it yourself and up with your own conclusion.
