Umineko no Naku Koro Ni first came to my attention from the doujin-style fighting game based off of it called "Ougen Musou Kyoku X", I had to know where the origins of such a game came from.

Taking an interest within the game, and wanting to know more about the origin of the one really elegant looking character (Beatrice, the Golden Witch seen here in the main picture), I delved into the anime head first!

Phoenix Wright style finger-pointing, plenty of murder mysteries, endless scenarios, trickery, witches, the blurring of lines between fantasy and reality with high-level arguments to boot; I give to you my anime review for うみねこのなく頃に Umineko no Naku Koro Ni!
