Here’s more fascinating stuff from the flurry of information this weekend, with such topics as:
- Why he choose witches as a theme for Umineko.
- Whether he’s familiar with the Rosatrice theory.
- Whether Yasu is a transgendered character.
- The relation between the worlds and characters of Higurashi and Umineko (the translator doesn’t mention it, but it looks he is explicitly influenced by Osamu Tezuka’s Star System).
There’s also an article to go along with it, with some comments and more description of the first two panels. Good stuff!
