Character designs and my thoughts after the jump.

Wow, the seiyuu list is pretty stacked so far. Horie Yui will make a great Maria. Uu uu. I’m very surprised by the selection of Kugi for Shannon. I guess she doesn’t want to play tsunderes all the time. Kanon’s seiyuu was Satoshi in Higurashi. Please be a good Kanon. I love his character >w<

The majority of the staff from Higurashi has carried over to Umineko. The character design is awesome. Check them out yourself!

Battler looks nice. He’d make a nice Ace Attorney. I see that they still capture his aloof side well. Where’s that picture of utter despair!?

I didn’t know Jessica’s breasts were that big. I look forward to her singing Tsurupettan.

Finally, George doesn’t look fat. He looks like a caring older brother now. Must be the glasses and the tare-me. I’m jealous of Shannon.

Nothing too special about Shannon. I’m more interested in how Kugi voices her.

Kanon-kun <3 He looks so cool! Ok, I’m just a huge fan of berets. Rena says… hau~ omochikaeri~!

    I am definitely liking these designs. I’m very glad that George doesn’t look like Tomitake at all here! The seiyuus casted should be a great mix and I’m happy that Maria is going to be played by Horie Yuu! From Ayu to Hanyuu and now Maria ^-^ I’m exploding with excitement, I can’t wait >_<!
