Banquet of the Golden Witch is the third installment of the Umineko no Naku Koro ni series. It was released at Comiket 74 on August 16, 2008.


Good morning. I'm quite surprised to see that you still haven't surrendered.
The Golden Witch has extremely high hopes for you.

Have you figured out the structure of this world by now?
You have no chance of victory unless you know the rules.
Please, enjoy your game with the Witch to your heart's content.

The difficulty level is equal.
Equal for both you and the Witch.

Plot Summary

The episode continues the battle between Battler and Beatrice, with the events on the island having a special focus on Eva Ushiromiya. Beatrice's past is also introduced, and several more fantasy characters are added to the cast. Unlike in the first two episodes, the adults make a serious attempt to solve the epitaph. Eva succeeds, but her witch persona EVA-Beatrice inherits Beatrice's titles and continues the epitaph murders.
