|Umineko Chiru Episode 7 - Requiem of the Golden Witch part 1|
A dream is something drawn in the sand between the coming and receding waves. Something so fragile that it is wiped blank each time the waves draw back.Battler created a tale only for Beatrice to read, and nobody else... This way, nobody will be able to defile her tale. A certain truth, between the two them. No matter how some witch or theatregoer tries to spin the tale, the golden truth between Battler and Beatrice will remain in tact.
There's some scene with an unknown protaganist maid, who gets fingered as the culprit by some inquisitors of heresy... Then some guy shows up and says they got the wrong culprit. He starts going off about Van Dine's rule #11. It is forbidden for a servant to be the culprit.
That's right, we are inquisitors of heresy. Felling evil witches is our job. However, we must not risk hurting the innocent.
All humans have their own personal truths. Those should only be exposed when they commit crimes. We've been given the right to expose them.He says that detectives must not forget to find the motive... the heart... without heart, a detective is just an intellectual rapist. heh...
But no one, not even god, has the right to expose the innocent truths of those who have not sinned!!
This guy's name is Will, but that's not what everyone used to call him... Head inquisitor of heresy in SSVD... Wizard-hunting Wright.
So that whole scene was unrelated to the witch's game, and was just to introduce Will.
Later, Will arrived at Beatrice's funeral. to meet with one of the family members. on Beatrice's coffin, there was a book with words printed on the cover:
To my beloved Beatrice. October 5th, 1986...what th... Krauss introduces himself and... his daughter, Ushiromiya Lion. Now I'm officially confused.
Will is confused by this as well, saying Kraus's child is supposed to be Jessica.
Jessica's my little sisterWill called out...
I'm here. isn't it about time you showed your face?Bern shows up in front of Will. Lion is able to see her too, but doesn't know who she is. Bern just made the catbox bigger by adding Lion, one of the pieces who has a possibility of appearing in the game.
Bern asked Will to solve the murder of Beatrice. He brings up Van Dine's twenty rules again.
Rule #1. It is forbidden to have a crime without all clues presented.Bern:
Don't worry. Everything is gathered here.Will is unable to refuse.
After Bern leaves, Will explains to Lion that this funeral is currently trapped in a concentrated loop of time. when he throws a rose outside, the rose stops in midair, and crumbles. He explains that they are stuck there and have to go along with the witch's game.
Lion is the successor to the head now, instead of Kraus. Says she often talks with Kinzo, so she's used to dealing with unreasonable people.
Everyone knows Beatrice. And yet, no one knows her. Kinzo's the only one who's ever met her.
Rosa tells her story about her leading Beatrice out of the hidden mansion, and then Beatrice falling to her death... Will says that it was an accident and it's not her fault.
They theorize that this Beatrice that Rosa met, must have been the child of the Beatrice that gave Kinzo the gold, due to the difference in age.
Will claims that he won't get any farther without talking to Kinzo. Bern gives will a status even higher than detective's authority, Theatregoing authority.
apparently Shannon doesn't even know this Lion person, and neither does Kanon... This is a special fragment, sewn from several different fragments by the game master... even Kinzo is still alive in this world.
There are 3 Beatrices. The first is the Beatrice who gave Kinzo the gold 30 years ago. The 2nd is the Beatrice that fell off the cliff 20 years ago. The 3rd is the ghost Beatrice who is rumored to be the master of the night on Rokkenjima.
It started out as the legend of the evil spirits on Akujikishima. Later, elements such as Kinzo's occult hobbies and Beatrice's epitaph got mixed in and formed the Legend of the Golden Witch.
Will tries to use his authority to get Shannon and Kanon together to talk to them, but Shannon gets all weird and says in all caps, that she and kanon are "ordered" to take turns at the reception desk, and they can not both be at the reception together... Shkanontrice is blatantly obvious by now if it wasn't already in ep6. It seemed like Will would've put himself into checkmate by using his authority here, so he gave up.
Lion doesn't know Shannon either, even though Shannon has been working as a servant for the last 10 years. Finally, she takes Will to meet Kinzo. Will tells Kinzo, if he dies without telling anything about Beatrice, then his children will adorn Beatrice with whatever tale they like, and write that into their memories.
Beatrice is mine alone. No matter what anyone says, no one can defile me and that tale. What they say is of no consequence!Kinzo does not like to anticipate anything in relation to his death.
Will doesn't seem to care about casually mentioning all stuff that he knows about this family from reading the other fragments.
Will theorizes that Kinzo thought of Beatrice's daughter as the old Beatrice reincarnated... The Beatrice who was locked up in Kuwadorian had the feeling that Beatrice wasn't her real name. She asked both Rosa and Virgilia what her real name was.
I simply have the soul of that witch sealed inside my body.Kinzo's magical ceremonies were trying to help the new Beatrice regain old Beatrice's memories... This is what the information in all the games up until now has lead Will to figuring out.
Kinzo refused to let Beatrice's soul escape even after death.
Then when Rosa let the 2nd Beatrice out, and she fell to her death...Kinzo couldn't cope with that, and he descended into madness... creating the witch's epitaph. Kumasawa/Virgilia comes to Genji and says they should tell everything about the story of Kuwadorian's Beatrice.
Kinzo lead a secret 2nd life in the Kuwadorian mansion to be with the his daughter who he thought of as his lover Beatrice.
Whoa... this is crazy... because of Will's authority, Kinzo has now decided to spill the beans about everything involving him and Beatrice. Lion is there too listening, stunned.
I met Beatrice... Beatrice Castiglioni... just before the end of the war.The war caused members of the Ushiromiya family to start dying off, and this allowed Kinzo to break away from their puppet strings. He then went to fight in the war in an attempt to end his life. He was on duty on this Rokkenjima island, a top secret submarine base that was later abandoned, so they were now guarding an empty island for no reason.
And then, an Italian submarine full of sick people arrived at the island. one person on it, a woman with golden hair, could speak English. And Kinzo, the interpreter, met her for the first time.
Two mansions, two families... The Ushiromiya family mansion, and the mansion for Kinzo, released from the shackles of the Ushiromiya family.Oh... and inside that italian submarine... was a mountain of gold ingots... These Italians are enemies with their current government, and with their submarine busted, there is no way for them to move the gold. They had to hide it in Rokkenjima.
The Italian and Japanese soldiers tried bargaining with each other to embezzle the gold... and before their negotiations had finished they started fighting each other. they had been entranced by demons.
Yamamoto, Kinzo, Beatrice, and an Italian soldier were the only ones left. After killing the last Italian soldier, Yamamoto tried to kill Beatrice, but Kinzo stopped him. Beatrice was injured and needed to be taken to a hospital on another island... but she didn't want that. If she went to a hospital, she'd be found out, and taken back to her country.
Just like Kinzo, Beatrice considered herself dead, and wanted to die on this mission, but after meeting each other, Bice and Kinzo found reason to live. She'd rather wait with Kinzo, because going to the hospital and then back to her country, would mean she would be dead again.
Kinzo won't accept Beatrice not getting to a hospital. He can only grant half of her wish, to kidnap her and be with her... he can't grant the part about staying with her on the island until the boat comes. Nanjo treated Beatrice... then they lived together in Kinzo's hometown, until Beatrice died while giving birth... Kinzo then bought Rokkenjima and set up the 2 mansions, using the Italian gold stash that nobody but him knows about.
The one-winged eagle... came from the markings on the gold ingots... this marking was supposed to be the symbol of the Salo Republic, but was warn out and only one wing was visible...
Kinzo had started to truly believe in Beatrice's magic, and used the one-winged eagle seal on the gold was his magical crest. Although he changed the design slightly, and had all the gold re-pressed, in order to prevent people from finding out the true origin of the gold was actually from a government.
... so, that's the story of 2 of the 3 Beatrices... and neither of them were 'killed', only died on accident.
That leaves the 3rd Beatrice, the one that is considered the ruler of Rokkenjima's night.
