|Episode 5 - End of the Golden Witch continued|
Now the 19 year old had Kraus held hostage, and told Natsuhi to not tell anybody about it and wait in a guest room closet at 1pm...
I think this 19 year old is just another illusion of Natsuhi's that Lambda created with her influence over the Natsuhi piece.. yeah, since there's only supposed to be 18 people on the island.
Since Kraus is missing, everyone except Natsuhi assumes he is the 6th victim.
That Erika has brought everyone together is actually convenient for us. All darkness outside the range of observers belongs to us demons....the Devil's Proof, which gives witches and demons their form in the human world.
Kraus's bed had a red bloodstain, but Kraus wasn't there. When they went back to the guesthouse, the corpses had disappeared. A move by Beato's servants as the humans all enter Kinzo's study and investigate his disappearance, Beato battles the human Erika on another plane, and uses blue truth to deny Natsuhi's involvement.
Erika is trying to prove that Kinzo's disappearance was caused by a human culprit, not a witch. She can't take out Beatrice's blue wedge, so she summons Dlanor A. Knox, her 2nd piece, the greatest natural enemy of witches, to fight Beatrice. As well as Dlanor's subordinates: Gertrude, Cornelia, Siesta Corps...
Dlanor had her underlings guard the study door so Beatrice can't escape. on the human side, Eva had placed a scrap of paper in between the door so she'd know if it was opened.
Beatrice's blue truth was destroyed by the red... and another red: Knox's 3rd: It is forbidden for hidden passages to exist.
Beatrice counters with another blue: Kinzo was outside of the study since the beginning of the closed room. Natsuhi could have talked to him through the phone.
There's nothing strange about Kinzo going to the hidden mansion, Kuwadorian, to stay away from the relatives.
Blue Truth. Effective.Beato's warp gate reappeared... Then Natsuhi ruins it by claiming that she met Kinzo face to face. the only blue wedge remaining was "Kinzo is hiding in this room."
Dlanor cut that last blue truth down, and just when she was about to finish Beatrice and Kinzo off...
Battler: "It's useless."... he claims he'll become Kinzo and disappear from this room.
I see... he is using that move. He really is my successor.Battler claims that Kinzo could have left the study after talking with Natsuhi, but before Natsuhi left the room, while she was inspecting the other closed off parts of the study. The study is now being filled with the power of darkness... Beatrice is again able to escape. As Battler is about to act out Kinzo leaving the study, Gertrude blocks him, claiming that the study door makes a sound when it is unlocked...
Battler looks at Cornelia...
but what about you over there by the window?Battler uses his endless nine magic resistance power to break through the Dlanor guards. A one-winged eagle, fleeing from a closed room through a 3rd floor window...
You aren't the kind of witch who can be locked up inside a closed room, right?The power which denies magic had scattered. Kinzo and Beato escaped from the closed room.
My riddle is yours alone, Ushiromiya Battler. I won't let anyone else solve it.After that fight (it was actually just Battler's piece controlled by Lambda that was doing all that), Dlanor went to have tea with the real Battler and Virgilia. Apparently she held back to let Battler win.
Beato had already proclaimed in red "Kinzo is dead at the beginning of all games.", so she could've finished Kinzo off at any time... but using that argument would violate Knox's 2nd:
It is forbidden for supernatural agencies to be employed as a detective technique....but Cornelia also could've used "The window was never opened"
So... Lambda and Bern are intentionally letting Kinzo exist within the game even though they already know he doesn't. They're working together for some reason.
Nobody can reach the Golden Land with Beato wanting them to be there... but Ange had entered it in the last game...
Court of illusions... the final moment where the "Natsuhi is the culprit" truth becomes the truth everyone believes in.
...wait wtf? Erika is trying to prove that all the people who died in the 2nd floor of the guesthouse (Jessica, Goerge, Maria, Rosa), died between 24:00 and 1:00, but then Bern said Rosa left the dining hall at 1:00???
During the short break at 1:00 AM, the first two to leave the dining hall were Rosa and Eva.Bern just declared with the red truth that Rosa was killed AFTER 1:00 AM... I thought Rosa was already at the guesthouse by then... I guess that was a mixup? They meant someone else instead of Rosa?
Finally, Battler takes a stand and tries to find a more convincing truth than Erika's where Natsuhi is innocent, without contradicting any of Bern/Lambda's red truths...
Virgilia then gives Battler the red truth "Natsuhi is not the culprit"
Bern then tries to bargain with him to acknowledge that Kraus is the culprit, the only remaining human culprit that is possible. Beato refuses it, believing that Battler will come through with the witch theory to save her... and then Bern uses the red to deny Kraus as the culprit... then, in a completely unrelated move, she used the red truth to deny the existence of Natsuhi's phantom Kinzo.
Lambda revoked Beatrice's title of witch and fed her to the goats... suddenly, Dlanor jumped in with a red sword and saved her at the last second. she wanted Battler to go all out against her first. After Battler exhausted all other options, he resorted to the red truth that Virgilia gave him, and that violated Knox's 2nd... unless a witch says it... um, Beato? hello?
Real truth is a very fragile thing. Does real truth exist? ... and is it necessary?Erika then explains the "why dunnit"... she found a diary from Natsuhi from long ago that said she was like a hostage being held by the Ushiromiya family. Erika gives Natsuhi one last chance to defend herself, by naming the phantom Kinzo as the true culprit, she refuses... Erika then did a thorough investigation to look for a living Kinzo, and determined that he couldn't exist anywhere except in Natsuhi's bed between 24:00 and morning at the same time she was sleeping in it (wtf? I don't get this)
They wanted to get her to admit herself that Kinzo was dead... seriously? That's really stupid. Erika can use her detective authority to claim that she investigated the ENTIRE ISLAND and prove without a doubt that a person doesn't exist there?
In Bern's truth... Natsuhi had sexual relations with Kinzo, even disguising herself as the witch of his delusions, in order to get revenge and control the Ushiromiya family...
Natsuhi, still talking to Erika... now she confesses about a murder. Not the current one, but the one from 19 years ago, where she summoned a demon to kill that baby. She really believes that baby died thanks to her magical power... Battler and the others were now sympathizing with her. Erika, who couldn't see this kind of magic, didn't understand.
Battler says "It's all useless, isn't it", and then the 5th game ends...
