[New July 2009] Umineko no Naku Koro ni

Japanese title: うみねこのなく頃に
Genres: Suspense / Thriller
I've watched: 1 episode

Summary: As the head of the wealthy family Ushiromiya about to die, family members gather on their private island to discuss about the inheritance. There they heard the legend about the witch named Beatrice, who granted wealth and hidden treasures to this family...

First impression score: 90 ~ Thrilling

Recognized voice talent: Ami Koshimizu (小清水亜美) as Rosa Ushiromiya: It's interesting how familiar voices are heard everywhere. If you haven't recognized her name or voice, she is the voice of the wise wolf Horo from Spice and Wolf series. Though sounds slightly different here, but it's definitely recognizable.

Personal comments: From the 07th Expansion, the creator of Higurashi no Naku Koroni, comes a new suspense thriller. Light comedy, sudden turn of violence, suspense, this first episode definitely has the feel of Higurashi in it. I just hope it turns out to be as great of an anime as Higurashi series are.

Oh you definitely have to watch episode two which is even better than episode 1.

My favourite anime of this season and very nostalgic of Detective Conan with a twist. Although the perverted lines of Battler don't work that well and seem more random than funny.

I do have the episode 2 in hand, but I still have tons of episode 1 to roll through before I come back to look at episode 2's.
