|Umineko Chiru Episode 7 Tea Party part 1|
Lion and Ange are suddenly together in a theatre. Claire appears and tells about what happened on October 4th, 1986... Maria read aloud the letter that claimed to be from the Golden Witch Beatrice and challenged the family.
Try and solve the riddle of the epitaph. Otherwise, I will take everything.The adults all start suspecting one another...
Beato's ceremony has begun... Kihihihihihi
In all the games, October 4th happens in pretty much the same way.She complains that this is just another riddle the witches are forcing them to play through.
Lion realizes that since she has learned about the culprit's heart, and can see through any of her riddles, it is her role to teach Ange about the truth of this tale.
The adults have stopped bickering about the inheritance and started working together to solve the riddle.
Battler hears about Shannon and George going out, and recalls his memories from 6 years ago, when he had a crush on Shannon... George proposes to her, and talks about how she used to like Battler...
Meanwhile, the adults have already solved the epitaph, followed the lion statues, and found the door to the gold.
On the tenth twilight, the journey shall end, and you shall reach the capital where the gold dwells.
Lion explains that all of the siblings had solved the epitaph together before the crimes occurred... Beatrice decided not to commit the crimes if the epitaph was solved. so in this game, the crime will not occur. Beatrice's roulette has already made its decision. This is the end of her game.
In the room with the gold, the adults find Beatrice hiding behind a curtain. she welcomes them with a blank expression...
Is Father behind this?
No. This is my... game.Beatrice states plainly that if they hadn't solved the epitaph, she would taken all of their wealth... and all of their lives.
I planned to do as I please with everything that exists on this island.She picked up one of the bullets that were sitting on the table with a bunch of rifles.
If the night ended before you managed to solve the epitaph's riddle, I planned to follow the epitaph and commit 13 murders.
I am prepared... you may do as you will with me.
I planned this game because I was prepared to bet my life....then suddenly she walks up to a grandfather clock...
Allow me to explain the device within this clock. For you have gained not just the gold, but the entirety of this island.The 9th twilight, where nobody is left alive... that clock is connected to a set of explosives.
Kinzo is the one who set up the device. This device is the source of his mad magical power.
On this island, Ushiromiya Kinzo made a contract with the Golden Witch and obtained the gold. However, that was not all he gained.If the switch is activated, the bombs are set to explode at 24:00...
Beneath this island sleep the remains of an underground Japanese military base from the time of the war. Along with 900 tons of explosives.
If that exploded, the result would be unimaginable! Forget just the mansion blowing up... it'd leave a massive crater!!
Kinzo gambled everything he had... Whenever he got stuck, he would hide in this room, and flip the switch... maybe he decided to blow everything away if he didn't think of a brilliant plan before 24:00...
Beatrice had tested the explosives herself to make sure they still work... that's why the shrine disappeared without a trace.
... Pay me no mind any longer. I am already one of the dead, who was already prepared to kill everyone and die myself.
I am one yet many. I abandoned myself to the magical roulette of endless possibilities. The result... the answer... is this. This is what the tarot cards known as the epitaph ceremony have shown me.Beatrice is already dead. They did not kill her. I killed her myself... in accordance with fate's command. They will never understand... for all eternity.
Beatrice also hands them a cash card worth around a billion yen... part of her power as a golden witch.
The strongest magic to counter the humans' anti-magic toxin is this magic of gold.
Eva starts to get suspicious about all this...
What if she's lying about which is the "off" side of the switch?!(... seriously? there are NO markings at all to tell which side of the switch is the on or off side?? Kinzo is fucking nuts)
It is one minute to 24:00, and they have to decide whether or not to trust a witch.
Everyone argues with Eva...
If she wanted to kill us with a bomb, she wouldn't have told us about it.
... B... Beatriiiiiiiiice...!! Don't think you can trick me.....!!!The second hand of the clock... ticked past 24:00. October 4th ended... and the curtain rose on October 5th, 1986... The switch was still pointing to the left.
The witch's words had been proven correct.
Gold is the only physical embodiment of magic that can appear in the human world. In that case, how much magic power would dwell in it... if it was piled up in a mountain so high you'd have to look up to see the top?
Now Eva and Krauss have started arguing about how to split up the gold. The four guns the witch had placed in this room were now in the hands of the relatives.
During the scuffle... Eva "accidentally" shot Natsuhi, and Hideyoshi accidentally shot Krauss... Rosa and the others stood there stunned... the witch was completely disinterested in this scene.
Eva decides that a massive accident needs to happen to cover up these murders.. she starts going mad and playing with the clock... If everyone except Krauss and Natsuhi went to stay over at the hidden mansion, where there were no explosives, it would look like those 2 died from an accidental explosion. Except... the other siblings don't like this plan, because it means the gold will vanish along with the island. Rosa suggests that Eva turn herself in.
Of course, we don't want to say that the crime happened here. The police would find the gold... yes, what about the rose garden?
It's not so bad, right? After all, it's not like they'll keep you in jail for several decades. It'll just be a few years for accidental murders, and then you'll have your 5 billion yen share to do whatever you want with.Rosa wasn't backing down at all...
Calm down, nee-san. If you calm down, you'll see that my plan is the best one.
Even if they put you in for ten years, there will be 5 billion yen waiting for you when you get out. That's like working for a 500 million yen salary, right?bam... Eva shot... no... Kyrie shot Rosa... She realized that Rosa's plan was faulty. None of them could exchange that gold for cash... especially after the successor and his wife died mysterious deaths.
We don't want to get the police involved. We'll blow up this island and destroy all the evidence. If it's tough parting with the gold, feel free to grab a few ingots.</spoiler>
This... this is some insane plot development here, even for this game.
