So, Umineko's about this pervert Battler, who goes to this conference on his family's island, which basically is an opportunity for his parents and aunts/uncles to gripe and bitch over the inheritance, since they're all under financial pressure. There's also this painting of this blond chick who was apparently his grandfather's mistress and a witch who gave him gold, and also an epitaph involving gouging and sweetfish. ...but then people start mysteriously being killed, and things get really wacky. That's really all I can say without spoiling EP1. The games get more elaborate and twisted. Needless to say, this series became somewhat popular and memetic. Actually, 07th Expansion's intro is probably the best way to describe this without spoilers: (I totally copy-pasted this, fyi) If you would like to start getting into this series, start here: http://witch-hunt.com/stage.html Witch-Hunt was a group of dedicated Umineko fans who, with acknowledgement even from Ryukishi07 himself, released a translation for all eight episodes, each of which are substantial in size on their own. Ignoring the "Meanwhile, at Witch-Hunt" meme, the sheer amount of effort this fan translation group put in to translating is nothing but laudable. EP1 in its entirety is available for free as a demo, and if you liked it, then you ought to buy the download versions, also available on that website. Please spoiler-tag anything from the Episode it came from, thanks!
