Umineko no Naku Koro ni OP Screenshots

Umineko no Naku Koro ni Opening

Some screenshots from opening of Umineko no Naku Koro ni anime, which starts airing on July 2, have leaked on the internet. I have been assured that Studio DEEN’s drawing of Battler didn’t meet my expectations, but the rest looks great, judging from the screenshots. They’ve made amazing scary and creepy expressions, as I have expected of them. After all, they did a great job at horrifying scenes in Higurashi.

Not only screenshots, but also a part of opening song has been streamed on video uploading sites. I don’t like as much as Umineko no Naku Koro ni song which is opening for Umineko visual novel, but still it’s a great song. Its name is 片翼の鳥 (which probably reads Katayoku no Tori) and it means One-winged Bird. Quite a characteristic name, since Ushiromiya family has an eagle wing in their crest.
