Umineko Anime Information

December 25, 2008 at 7:39 pm 4 comments

As some of you already know, Umineko no Naku Koro ni is getting an anime adaptation in 2009 and the cast have been announced gradually.  Umineko is the next installment in the “When they cry” series after Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.  It details the mysterious murders that happen in the span of two days on Rokkenjima. The character designs have now been released.  There are currently 6 cast members revealed. They are as follows:

The production staff has also been announced.

  • Original work – Ryukishi07 / 07th Expansion (Higurashi)
  • Director – Kon Chiaki (Higurashi)
  • Series adaptation – Kawase Toshifumi (Higurashi)
  • Character design – Kikuchi Youko (Noir, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, El Cazard)
  • Animation production – Studio Deen (Higurashi, Fate/Stay Night, Jigoku Shoujo)


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.



Uu uu… Maria is soooo adorable! Yangire mode! Yangire mode!!! Kukukuku~



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 can’t wait for the anime to come out now! >w<b  This is like an awesome Christmas present.


Remember, Episode 4 Alliance of the Golden Witch will be available at Comiket 75. Umineko Motion Graphic 3 will also be out. Here’s a sneak preview.

    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 >_<!

    Dude it really creeps me out how similar our posts are.

    Character designs are indeed awesome.
