First Look: Umineko no Naku Koro ni

Another mystery who-done-it wannabe, but is it worth the fuzz? Well, after seeing 2 episodes of this game-made-anime series, I can proudly say this should be interesting to watch. The first episode sets up the plot, introducing the large amount of characters that are on an island. It's all about a witch, some gold, and some family. And there is a lot of mystery going on. I have only seen 2 episodes, and at the end of the second 5 person die, so it's a good start for a who-done-it, with everyone blaming the so-called Beatrice, the witch that made the family rich. The animation is kind of gloomy, and it just builds the horror-like atmosphere. Didn't notice a great soundtrack, but there are these cliche effects when the tension builds and the climax arrives. Like I said, after 2 episodes, I am really waiting for more, therefore will definitely watch it as soon as has its full release.

Expecation rating: 8.5
