Umineko no Naku Koro ni cover
Umineko When They Cry is a murder mystery series set on the island of Rokkenjima, where the wealthy Ushiromiya family finds themselves the targets of a series of mysterious murders. A mysterious figure claiming to be the Golden Witch Beatrice takes credit for them via letters, but Battler, who refuses to accept the existence of witches, is determined to find a human explanation.

Umineko is divided into eight main story arcs and is the second story in the overarching When They Cry franchise, after Higurashi. The visual novel is currently available in English on Steam, GOG, and MangaGamer.

As foundational elements of the story may be major plot twists for new readers, we strongly discourage browsing Umineko articles (including this page) until you have at least completed the Question Arcs, preferably the whole series. Spoiler tagging will be primarily contextual and will mainly apply to major plot points. For our full spoiler policy, see this article.
