[Bad End – 01] Witch Tea-house

1 Comment

Welcome to the Tea-House. You just got a Bad End... and there will be more.
Although so far Umineko wasn’t as thrilling as I expected, I did like the idea of the tea-house sequence at the end of Bad End 1. As mentioned by many, it is very much like Fate S/N’s famous Tiger Dojo, which apart from offering some nonsense comic relief, will offer players tips to avoid Bad End… though the fact that each time you fail will earn you a Tiger Dojo Stamp sort of makes you want to collect all of them… with its promise of extra CGs. As a parallel, from now on I’m going to call this section of Umineko the Beatrice Tea-House…or Umineko’s Rika, Bernkastel Tea House… or just Witch Tea-House lol.

But don't feel too bad; A free Stamp is given each time you visit us. Accumulate enough and we might offer some bonus CGs and free cup of tea.
Years ago, “anime” consist only anime of the animated film and the manga, but as of recent years, I daresay that we can officially add visual novel and light novel to this large collective group. Most notable in how anime like Umineko incorporate visual novel traits — soon we might need a new trope for this type of partial-4th-wall breaking.

Also, Shin made an interesting post on it as well.

  1. I enjoyed Higurashi better but still the suspense of the ending and the reason for the whole game makes me continue to look forward for more.
