Truth is Frail

Hello, I am Ryukishi07.

What did you think of Episode 3 of Umineko When They Cry? The cast was larger than the previous episodes, making it rather lively. The more you acknowledge the existence of the witches, dear reader, the more their power grows and causes Battler anguish...My goal in this episode was to provide a much wider range of each character's personality. I find the soft, tender side of a normally headstrong woman to be a very mysterious thing...Did I succeed in depicting that feminine range within Beatrice this time? If it tickled your fancy at any time in this episode, I'll consider that a success. (lol)

And now Rokkenjima has finally produced a survivor. What happened on the island that day? Only she knows the truth...but she will cast off this mortal coil without speaking it aloud. And Ange's solitary journey has only just begun...I hope you will continue her story in Episode 4, drawn by Soichirou-sensei. Thanks!

But the truth is such a frail and fragile thing, is it not? Only Beato knows what her final smile meant, but the observers can derive two possible truths. Have you readers who challenge the witch's illusions arrived at your own answers yet?

We've already finished the third episode of the game. The longer you struggle, the deeper the illusions' infiltration...Now wipe your tears and stand up. The eternal torment shows no signs of ending...Hee-hee-hee...

Kei Natsumi

It's an honor to have spent so much time with you. I'm Natsumi. So I managed to finish drawing Episode 3. I really love this particular story, so I truly enjoyed myself wworking on it. Natsumi is as happy as a clam. I gained many things these past three and a half years.

To my editors Nozaki-san and Koizumi-san, forgive me for all the problems. To everyone at 07th Expansion, thank you for everything. But most of all, thank you to the fans! I'd love to meet you again in my next work. Hasta la vista! Have a nice day!

Special Thanks
