Each year, the Ushiromiya family gathers at the secluded mansion of its patriarch, the elderly Kinzo. It has been six years since Battler joined his cousins at the annual event, but their happy reunion is overshadowed by worsening weather and an eerie premonition from his youngest cousin.

When their parents' conversation turns to the division of the inheritance upon Kinzo's imminent death, Battler and his cousins reminisce about the stories their parents teased them with as children-tales of the witch, Beatrice, who haunts the island’s forest. But when people start dying unnatural deaths, Battler can’t help but wonder…

Generally considered the "perfect" epilogue to the main game.

Though the manga adaptation is never a replacement to the original visual novel, most readers agree that reading the final chapters of Umineko Episode 8's manga adaptation is appropriate after finishing the visual novel. This is because of the "confession" chapter, which thoroughly explains the motivations of the true culprit of all the episodes.

As such, I recommend reading this manga, but only after finishing the visual novel.

Either way, well done to the author, and the mangaka. A wonderful story, the manga reaches 9/10, but the visual novel is easily a 10/10 masterpiece.

I remembered waiting for 7 years for Umineko to finish (and 7 years ago, it's already an ongoing series)!
From all episodes, I like Natsumi Kei's work best, as the mangaka is the one who drew the first of series, so it's just a proper thing that s/he will be the one who finished it.

Usually I won't understand much from manga that is based on games/visual novel, but this Umineko manga manages to tell a complete story without any skipped/shortened-and-merged parts. Especially the epilogue... It is such a happy and touching ending, especially after seeing so many roller-coasters, ups-and-downs moment, and the harsh nature of witches who love to see mosery of other. I can't ask more except for more and more unending epilogue!

Umineko contains gore and horror, but also "love", and most of all, tragic element it in. It also has something to do with mind logic, "detective" and "mystery", and psychology. And of cpurse, don't forget about the fantasy part (obviously).
After reading until episode 7, the answers of everything become clearer. Even the philosophy and plot become understandable. "If in one mystery novel, the pages that explain the trick are ripped off the book, then it become a fantasy, that can only be done by witch. The line between fantasy and mystery is as thin as paper". Anpther thing that I get from the main plot itself is, the Cat Box Theory itself. It was fun solving the puzzles and understanding this stuffs while reading the whole series, looking back to find some hidden clues, or re-reading it and discovered new things.

I think this is (one of) the best manga with so many genres and elements combined into one, and it doesn't destroy the story itself. For one example, how do you make a manga with almost all girls as characters, wearing quite loli and frilly European dress, fight against each other, and but with no fanservice ecchi stuffs at all? The first manga that I praised for having so many elements in is Naruto. The second would be Umineko.

I might overrated it, but "without love, it can't be seen", and because I love this so much, I find it really worth to read! Now that it totslly ends, I'll feel a bit lonely....

Certainly, when something cries again, I'll be there to read anpther tale being weaved......
