Description: Umineko: When They Cry

Umineko is made by the same company that made Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni and it takes place within that same universe, but the characters are all new. It also has a similar plot line involving a murder mystery.

The Ushiromiya family has assembled on the family head's island, Rokkenjima, for their annual discussion on what will happen to Kinzo's assets after his death. Once a typhoon hits, no one can get on or off. Maria arrives with a strange letter from the witch Beatrice, and people start dying.

The whole story is focused around Battler and his encounters on the island.
