Fashion + anime = Fanime - うみねこのなく頃に(Umineko No Naku Koro Ni)

My roommate warned me not to watch this anime. Her reasoning? "It's good, but a total mind-#@!$"
I should have listened.

I must say - I REALLY enjoyed it. But I was like "whaaaaaaaaaaaa???" I sat and watched all 26 episodes in a span of 2 days. I became OBSESSED. I had to finish it. I mean, come ON the theme is in Japanese AND Italian - both of the languages I'm learning. I HAD to watch it.
Essentially it's a murder mystery anime. A boy named Battler Ushiromiya goes to this island with his step mom and dad to meet up with his family. There they discuss the Ushiromiya family fortune and the family head, Kinzo. Well...Kinzo is apparently obsessed with this woman named The "Golden Witch" Beatrice. She has put a curse on the family fortune because Kinzo made a pact with her to obtain it...or well, that's what the legend is. Is she real? Is she fake? That's the point of the show!!!

The way people die in this anime is absolutely gruesome, but I couldn't tear myself away. I HAD to find out if Beatrice was real and if the family was going to be saved from The Curse of The Golden Witch. And it was such a beautifully drawn anime. Beatrice, though evil, was absolutely amazing to look at. I WANT her dress and her school girl outfit. It's too cute. My roommate cosplays and she was one of the characters in Umineko. Her friend who was Beatrice was gorgeousssss. I would wear that dress to class if I had it.
I was bored and polyvored her school girl outfit.
Umineko - Beatrice Sama

If you need a new anime to watch I highly suggest Umineko. Just be's addictive and crazy. But watch it anyway!!! Here is a link to episode one!
