Umineko no Naku Koro ni – Episode 16: queening square

October 18, 2009
Eva-Beatrice is still in the spotlight. In this episode, she ditches the Seven Sisters of Purgatory after two of them fail to serve her rightly, and finds new ones. Yeah, they’re bunny girls… Oh right, Battler is still angry at Moe Beatrice, who is now more upset than ever. So, expect more Eva, more deaths, bunny girls and moe Beatrice~
The Ushiromiyas are gathered behind a door, worried about Rosa and Maria who went to find the rose but never came back. Since they’re not coming back, Rudolf decides to go alone outside and check things out. Hideyoshi returns to his room, where Eva was resting. She asks Hideyoshi what’s going on, and gets really upset when she learns they went out to search for the rose, telling him there’s a witch waiting for them at the gardens. Hideyoshi, however, doesn’t give much attention to what she’s saying, believing she just had a nightmare.
Meanwhile, in the gardens, Rudolf had discovered the corpses of Maria and Rosa. We’re immideatly sent to the game room, where Battler was sitting in again. Last time we saw him he leave it, after giving Beatrice what he though she deserved. Virgilia gives us a little information on how the victims died, much like to an autopsy. Battler still believes Beatrice is actually in control of Eva-Beatrice, and for that he says he’ll never forgive her. Poor Beato tries to explain the situation to him, but noooooo, he’s not willing to listen to a word. Instead he plays his move and blames the murders on Rosa, who accidentally killed Maria while trying to stop her from crying. Rosa herself died of bad luck, as she slipped and fell on the fence, still being upset with what she’s done. Beato tries to disprove him but she’s soon told to shut it and leave. Battler is just too angry to play games with her; a cruel witch who had -since the very beginning- enjoyed torturing people. Beatrice do as she’s asked, leaving Ronove behind her as her representative for the time being. Battler wants to resume the game now. By supposing that Rosa is the culprit and died in an accident, he denies witches. Renove disproves that possibility, as he states in red that both of them were killed by other people.
Rudolf has now regrouped with the Ushiromiyas and brought back Rosa’s shotgun. After examining it, they find out it still have all five of its bullets, leading them to the assumption the one who killed her must’ve been someone who she would let her guard down to. Natsuhi asks them to stop suspecting each other, and instead try to stay as safe as they can. Eva is struct by a headache again and as she sits down, time freezes and Eva-Beatrice appear, informing her she was the one who killed Rosa and Maria, and that she will continue following the ceremony, so her powers as a witch will be complete. Eva cries that she never wanted any of this, just the gold and the headship were enough, and so she begs her to stop. Tough luck. Eva-Beatrice tells her she’s not willing to stop, since she’s not the same as her anymore. Time unfreezes after she claims she’ll avoid killing Eva’s family to complete the epitaph. Hideyoshi, worried by her headache, leads her to their room once more, while Kyrie watches them in suspicion.
In the next scene, Kyrie tells Rudolf she wants to go outside to the mansion, get some canned food. Since it’s brightest outside now, the wisest choice would be to do it now. The lucky people who’re going are none other than Rudolf, Kyrie and Hideyoshi, who will be carrying the cardboard boxes with the food. Leaving with two men with shotguns and Kyrie’s intelligence, their survival chances are pretty much higher than Rosa’s; or so they believe…
They get into the mansion, and after Hideyoshi tries to play commander, they dash into the kitchen. Have I mentioned before I love this guy? Anyway, Eva-Beatrice decides to make this event fun and so she starts locking doors while unnoticable. Right after locking the whole mansion, she summons two of the Seven Sisters of Purgatory: Leviathan of Envy and Belphegor of Sloth. Eva-Beatrice orders them to kill as brutally as they can Rudolf and Kyrie, but leave Hideyoshi alone. But to that, they’re afraid they can’t do, since Beato has asked them to refrain from unnecessary cruetly.
In the kitchen, Hideyoshi finishes packing up food in a cardboard box and suggest it’s time they left. Kyrie feels a chill, as though they’re gonna get ambushed really soon, and agrees with him. Having everything they needed, they don’t waste time and Rudolf tries to unlock the back door of the kitchen. Too bad for him it’s locked. With no other choice, they leave from the front door, only to meet with the sisters a few moments later. The sisters are actually surprised mere humans like them predicted their ambush, but, well, it’s Kyrie we’re talking about here. Quickly, Rudolf and Kyrie (who were now holding the guns) shoot them but they’re faster to teleport and appear onto the air. The group of humans decides to retreat for now, splitting into three directions.
Now someplace else, Belphegor catches up with Rudolf and tells him she’ll kill him gently and fast. Rudolf howerver, smiles calmly and compliments her; much to her surprise. Soon enough they start fighting, and their powers are seemingly balanced. In the meantime, Leviathan had caught up with Kyrie and introduced herself offically this time. Kyrie laughs her title off, after all, she’s the only one who knows what true envy is; the same feeling she felt when Rudolf was tricked by Asumu, the mother of Battler, into marrying her. She shoots her right after. Returning to Rudolf, Eva-Beatrice makes her appearance in the scene and surprises Rudolf, who believes it’s her sister. He also shoots her, but she’s saved by Belphegor, who uses her body as a shield to take his bullet. Kyrie also catches up with Rudofl, and it’s now the two of them versus Eva-Beatrice. Or not…?
Eva-Beatrice had been pissed off at the Seven Sisters of Purgatory since their first meeting and so she decides to seek new furniture. She uses her powers to summon even stronger furniture to serve her. Out of nowhere, two bunny girls, Siesta 410 and Siesta 45 of the Dragon King appear to the scene. Rudolf and Kyrie now outnumbered decide to run for it. Resistance is futile however, as they’re soon shot by the Siestas, who are nothing else than a living sniper. Eva-Beatrice appears to be is quite satisfied by her new furniture. She decides to make the corpses sacrifises for the next twilights, but for now she’ll just play with them. It’s then Hideyoshi comes to the rescue to scold her! (That guy never lacks to surprise me).
Hideyoshi slaps and shakes her while trying to beat some sense into her. He tells her to stop acting cruel when she’s really a coward who actually understands how important and fragile a life is and calls her continuesly an idiot. Then, something unexpected happened. Eva-Beatrice got so pissed at him she shot him with one of the shotguns lying on the floor. So much for letting him live… Hideyoshi is now the sacrifise for the sixth twilight.
Eva-Beatrice is once more interested in playing with the dead -soon to be alive- corpses. She is halted, however, from Beato, who rushes into the scene to ask her why she disobeyed her. Eva-Beatrice asks her if she’s doing this to please her opponent and convince him he’s a witch, something she learned from Ronove (Who I think talks a little too much~). Eva-Beatrice explains that unlike Beato, she can be a witch without anyone aknowleding her, but nevertheless she’ll respect her out of her own free will. To set an end to this scene, she summons the Siestas to see Beato off, who leaves while saying she’ll enjoy seeing what Eva-Beatrice will get herself into.
Game room. Virgilia continues the reteling of the story from where we left it. Battler, Eva, George and Nanjo found the corpses lying in the mansion hall. They had stakes in the forhead, chest and stomach -same as ever. Battler asks Ronove to confirm the death of the corpses in red. He refuses to do so unless Battler accepts Beato as his opponent again. With a little further pushing from Virgilia, he agrees to. The servants then set off the room.
While the time was being frozen, Beato was sitting at the exact same spot Battler met Virgilia at a few episodes ago. Virgilia approaches her and tells her there’s a large difference between her and the current Beatrice. While Eva-Beatrice is satisfied with being a witch in this world, Beato wanted to be aknowledged as a witch even outside the game board and challenged Battler as her opponent to do so. She thought that if she showed him proof she’s a witch and made him surrender he’d aknowledge that. Virgilia explains that it’s the exact opposite, as Battler didn’t become her opponent to aknowledge her, but because he refused to aknowledge the existence of a brutal witch like her. In the end, she tries to make her understand that in order to make Battler accept witches, she has to act a little more sincere.
My thoughts:
None… I guess I would’ve appreaciated a little more Bern but… meh….
