English

The time for logical debate and magical feints has come to an end; the revelation of the truth about Beatrice the Golden Witch is at hand. To facilitate this, game master Bernkastel has chosen Will Wright the Mage-Hunter to step onto her board and answer a single question: Who killed Beatrice? Joining him in the game is Lion Ushiromiya, Krauss's firstborn and heir, whose role is a mystery in its own right. Will's line of questioning draws together the stray strands from all the previous games, twisting them into a thread of truth, revisiting Kinzou's first encounter with the young Beatrice and working through the legends that have since sprung up around her...

Afterword

Ryukishi07

Hello I am Ryukishi07

First of all, thank you for pickign up the first volume of Episode 7 of the manga adaptation of Umineko When They Cry. My deep thanks go out to Mizuno-sensei and everyone else involved in putting out the book.

In Episode 7, we begin to see the answers to a number of mysteries comes to light. When originally writing the material, I remember undergoing quite a bit of strain checking for logic errors and debating how much of the answer to reveal... (laughs)

But enough about my side of things. I just hope that you are able to enjoy Episode 7 in this different form from the original visual novel. Also, we've got a number of new characters to watch. Going into it, I had only a few concerns: Will had to be cool! Lion had to be androgynous! And clair had to be...

Whoops, I'd better hold back on that for now... (laughs) I can't wait to see how Mizuno-sensei draws Will and the others going about their duties!

Eita Mizuno

I am Eita Mizuno, the artist in charge of Episode 7.

Will and Lion make their first appearance in this one, so I was a bit nervous taking that on, but I'll do my best to make their qualities shine!

By the way, I had always imagined Will's "girlfriend" (ha-ha) Diana as a slim Siamese, but then I found out she's supposed to be a white Persian... Will, with a fluffy Persian cat...? I think...I like it! (ha-ha)

Anyway, hope to see you in Volume 2!

Special Thanks!
