|Umineko Chiru Episode 7 - Requiem of the Golden Witch part 4|
Will and Beatrice explain how the epitaph is solved, starting from the clue Genji gave about Taiwan being Kinzo's hometown... then leading to a certain railroad as the hidden meaning of "sweetfish river"... then a whole bunch of wordplay involving english and japanese characters to eventually arrive at the word "Qilian" as the key, and "Quadrillion" as the 11-character phrase that it is referring to with the 10 twilights to reach the Golden Land... which is also a word that is written in the chapel, where there's a device that unlocks the door to the hidden gold...
You will be blessed only at a probability of a quadrillion to one.
Beatrice remembers how Genji was always the one who polished that relief above the chapel... none of the other servants ever did.
Each of the letters in "quadrillion" were keys that you could pull out... with 5 characters remaining, all spread apart by two spaces each...
"Those who remain shall praise my noble name", meant you had to arrange the keys to make " l o r d u " - Lord Ushiromiya
Outside the chapel, one of the lion statues had changed direction.. it was facing toward another lion statue facing another direction... Beatrice has now found the hidden gold... the witch who could once only play pranks around the mansion, has now awakened as the true Golden Witch.
Genji arrives in the room with the gold just after Beatrice, and applauds her. He tells her that Kinzo believed that the one who solved the riddle would contain Beatrice's soul. He showed her the italian dress that the original Beatrice wore... the one in the portrait.
Beatrice thinks to herself... how she isn't the real Beatrice, but a different witch, stealing the name of the witch from Kinzo's delusions... and now she has become the real Beatrice.
In the past, I believed that I could create my own fate with my magic. How ironic that fate should guide me to this place...
For some reason, Beatrice now isn't affected by Genji and Kumasawa's anti-magic toxin... they take her to see Kinzo. As Beatrice walks in... Kinzo sobs on the ground... and begs the old Beatrice for forgiveness. Shen he finished his bawling, he stood up, and started talking to the real/current Beatrice.
... So, I see that you are alive... I'm glad...
However, there can be no doubt that today's miracle is a true one. By her own power, without anyone's help, she solved the epitaph before anyone else.
They tell Beatrice that her true parents are Kinzo and the old Beatrice. Kinzo starts calling her by her real name.
Lion... I will now return to you everything that Beatrice gave me. I return to you the gold, as well as everything of the Ushiromiya family, which was created by it.He gave Beatrice the ring of the Ushiromiya family head, asked Lion to call him father one last time... and then he laughed like a maniac as he fell to the floor and died.
It may be... that the master died long before now. It was only his magic and tenacity that kept him here so long.Lion/Beatrice tells Genji, Kumasawa, and Nanjo that she doesn't want anyone else to know about her. She wants to remain the same witch of the island, waiting here for Battler... and she wants Krauss to take the role of Ushiromiya head. They agree to pretend that Kraus is the head, but Lion will keep the only key to the gold and will remain as the secret true head.
If I think about it, not much has actually changed. After all, I've always been the Golden Witch... I've just had a few more people acknowledge that.
November 29th, 1984, the day I became a true witch.
Oh, I am one yet many. I am the Golden Witch, Beatrice.
The true ruler of Rokkenjima... and the possessor of endless gold.
And yet, I was in no way complete.
...And that ends Beatrice's tale... but wait, what about the next 2 years?
The inner conflict of the furniture with incomplete souls... there was a duel. The result had almost been decided... but since it was 1986... that happened. If it had been a year earlier or a year later, it would have happened differently...
Beatrice abandoned herself to the choice of roulette.
Humans will carelessly say that people have infinite possibilities. However, the Endless Witch... knows how limited those possibilities really are.
So out of her limited fate, she tried to create the infinite... she spun the roulette of fate with an unshakable and certain will. A certain fate, where absolutely no one could escape if the epitaph was not solved. And all of it sealed up on the island. October 4th and 5th, 1986, were sealed away by an absolute and certain will... and she abandoned herself to that short span of time and the many fates that could be chosen on that island.
To conclude her funeral, Beatrice offers her heart to Will, the one who could finally understand her heart.
In the mystery genre, there can be no death unless the detective performs the last rites.Slowly... Will drew it out. Its pitch-black tip, which could neatly slice apart truth from fiction, swung once, leaving a black trail, and then again, leaving a white trail.
I'll cut the truth out from the fiction.He explains all of the murder mysteries in all of the games with "Illusions to illusions" and "Earth to earth"
Tales woven by the gold truth return to illusions
When fiction is shut up inside a cat box, it becomes truth
One final question... "Who... aaam I...?"...
Illusions to illusions. The promised reaper lowers the curtains on the tale regardless of the witch's will.People are riddles. They want someone else to solve their riddle. They live life wanting someone to solve the riddle of who they are... the most difficult riddle in the world.
The illusion of the witch has been spectacularly crushed, and Bern's little bit of revenge is complete.
This tale of intertwined loves ends thanks to an absolute and certain willpower... Out of respect for that certain willpower, the Witch of Certainty made that kid a witch for just two days.
What was the truth behind those endless tales? We can't say for sure. That's what makes it a cat box. When you open the cat box, you get a tale where no trace of the mansion remains, and no one except Eva survives.
Now that I think about it, maybe the whole island where she lived and died was the Golden Land.By the way, Battler has written the most fun tale imaginable of the inside of that cat box... that is the happiest possible tale for Beatrice other than the one where Lion is Natsuhi's child.
