The anime adaptation of 07th Expansion’s latest sound novel, Umineko no Naku Koro ni, finally received its green light. As stated on its official site, more informations regarding this anime will be revealed this summer (perhaps at Summer Comiket). It seems that Umineko will also be animated by Studio Deen like Higurashi. Considering how there are only two games released so far, the anime should have good pacing if it’s going to be only 13 episodes. The first season of Higurashi skipped lots of the TIPS because they’re trying to fits the five arcs into 26 eps while the second season feels too much dragged because they only have to animate 2 arcs and trying to animate all the TIPS left behind from season 1. Let’s just cross our fingers hoping this will turn out to be a good adaptation.
Here’s my previous article regarding the sound novel itself.
