Seiyuu for Beatrice and Additional Character Designs Revealed for Umineko Anime

According to Famitsu Online, the seiyuu for the Golden Witch Beatrice of Umineko no Naku Koro ni has been revealed as Ohara Sayaka probably best known for her role as Alicia Florence in the ARIA series. In addition character sketches for all 18 people isolated in the world of 1986 Rokkenjima plus Beatrice have finally been unveiled:

The Golden Witch Beatrice

Other than the fact that Beatrice is batshit insane, she looks pretty nice.

Ushiromiya Battler

I love Battler and his wide array of emotions.

Ushiromiya Jessica

Jessica is ridiculously curvy and tsundora.

Ushiromiya Maria

umineko-anime-sketch-08-maria-face

Maria’s looking pretty disturbing when in “Rika MOODO”

Ushiromiya George

umineko-anime-sketch-10-george-face

George looks a little like a fusion between Tokitake and Doctor Irie.

Servant Shannon

umineko-anime-sketch-12-shannon-face

Shannon looks really kind and gentle. I wonder what she looks like when confronting certain antagonistic individuals.

Servant Kanon

umineko-anime-sketch-13-kanon-body

umineko-anime-sketch-14-kanon-face

Kanon looks rather Bishounen.

Ushiromiya Kinzo

umineko-anime-sketch-16-kinzo-face

Kinzo looks a little more intimidating than I imagined.

Ushiromiya Krauss

umineko-anime-sketch-17-krauss-body

umineko-anime-sketch-18-krauss-face

I also imagined that Krauss would look a little more wrinkled.

Ushiromiya Natsuhi

umineko-anime-sketch-19-natsuhi-body

umineko-anime-sketch-20-natsuhi-face

Natsuhi is looking depressed as always.

Ushiromiya Eva

umineko-anime-sketch-21-eva-body

umineko-anime-sketch-22-eva-face

Auntie Eva is looking a little like Takano with her droopy eyes.

Ushiromiya Hideyoshi

umineko-anime-sketch-23-hideyoshi-body

umineko-anime-sketch-24-hideyoshi-face

Hideyoshi pretty much looks exactly how he should.

Ushiromiya Rudolf

umineko-anime-sketch-25-rudolf-body

umineko-anime-sketch-26-rudolf-face

Rudolf has a really good face and I expect him to look pretty cool during a certain scene in Episode 3.

Ushiromiya Kyrie

umineko-anime-sketch-27-kyrie-body

umineko-anime-sketch-28-kyrie-face

Kyrie looks really young and beautiful.

Ushiromiya Rosa

umineko-anime-sketch-29-rosa-body

umineko-anime-sketch-30-rosa-face

Rosa’s expressions for her sudden mood swings will be perfect for the madness that occurs in Episode 2.

Servant Genji

umineko-anime-sketch-31-genji-body

umineko-anime-sketch-32-genji-face

Genji looks like a pro butler.

Servant Gohda

umineko-anime-sketch-33-gohda-body

umineko-anime-sketch-34-gohda-face

Gohda has soft features befitting a chef.

Servant Kumasawa

umineko-anime-sketch-35-kumasawa-body

umineko-anime-sketch-36-kumasawa-face

Kumasawa’s age really shows but I sense a lack of Mackerel here.

Attending Physician Nanjo

umineko-anime-sketch-37-nanjo-body

umineko-anime-sketch-38-nanjo-face

Nanjo also looks exactly like he should.

The character designs look really nice and somehow maintain the same feel as the original designs. Ohara Sayaka is also an interesting choice as Beatrice and I can see her talking very elegantly when needed but I’m not familiar enough with her voice to imagine how she sounds when belittling Battler. As long as she can do Beatrice’s unlady-like cackle, I’ll be pleased.
