I don’t know the exact details but a 45 second cut of Umineko no Naku Koro ni’s anime opening song was leaked on Nico Nico Douga recently. Interestingly enough it seems the English fan community has invaded and left a bunch of English comments which the Japanese don’t seem to enjoy very much. Quite hilarious if you ask me. Video below for convenience:
The song is similar in style to the original game’s opening and is sung by the same artist so I am sure it will please fans. Trying to imagine the accompanying animation is somewhat hard but it would be nice if they eluded to the original openings from the games and changed scenes for each of the four episodes. Definitely looking forward to the TV version and the full-size to be released August 19.
(In a related note, I may be helping fansub the Umineko anime.)
