* I may be alone, but during some of the more "horrific" scenes of the anime, the expressions of the dead and/or horrified characters were just so exaggerated that I couldn't help laughing.
* Witch Hunt, I will forever be grateful for your superb FanTranslation of the [[VisualNovel sound novels]], but did you ''have'' to refer to the theoretical construct within which SchrodingersCat resides as a "cat box"? Schrodinger's cat box - completely eliminates odors, because you don't know whether you have to clean it until you open it! It's a testament to the power of Ryukishi's writing that such an incongruous phrase doesn't kill all drama every time it crops up.
* This troper found [[http://www.mangareader.net/959-58358-19/umineko-no-naku-koro-ni-episode-4/chapter-13.html Rosa's reaction]] to Maria making Sakutaro 'talk' hilarious... it looks like she's having a seizure.

ridiculously exaggerated.

* This troper can hardly take the [[http://umineko.wikia.com/wiki/File:Battler.jpg VN's character designs]] seriously, especially compared to [[http://umineko.wikia.com/wiki/File:Battler_mugshot.jpg the anime.]]
** Funny, it was actually the other way around for me.
** As someone who came to the anime first, I think I can safely say, "The [[PrecisionFStrike fuck]]?" That kind of character design in the VN harkens back to ''Lupin III'' or something, only... weirder.

** No, you're not alone. It may not be ''as'' ridiculous as ''Main/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', but it's still funny as Hell.

** Similarly, the huge TearJerker of a scene where [[spoiler: Ange breaks down and denies the Stakes, Witch!Maria and Sakutaro, killing them as a side effect]] is ruined in the manga when [[spoiler: her "closes friend" Mammon]]'s FamousLastWords are "Your first and last FRIEEEEEEND!". What kills it is the extremely long "frieeeeeeeeeend!"; when the scalators have to break it into ''paragraphs'' due to how exaggerated it is, you know it's not gonna work as dramatically as it should have.

* Even the manga can fall victim to this, with its...[[http://www.onemanga.com/Umineko_no_Naku_Koro_ni_Episode_4/9/59/ interesting]] depictions of Beatrice's facial expressions.

** Also at the end of the fourth arc in the anime comes [[spoiler: Ange's death]], which could've been the [[TearJerker moving]] scene it was originally intended to be...[[spoiler: had the director not chosen to focus on blood running down her ''thighs''.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GD5ihiLF94&feature=channel Others]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nyn0DQ_VWhA&feature=related noticed the implications]].

* At the end of the second arc, [[spoiler:Beatrice force-feeds Rosa her siblings' body parts to drive her to accept that Beatrice is a witch and that magic exists. This goes from Krauss' blood, to Eva's tongue, to a fish that was stuffed into the ''hollowed-out skin of Rudolf's face''. After that, she reveals the last dish: Rosa's daughter Maria's ''decapitated head''. The whole scene is horrifying. But then Maria's head starts dancing around on the plate and talking.... The Drama is killed off for good when Meta-Battler arrives and says he'd like to have Beatrice's "Cow-tits" in a sandwich; that, however, might have been [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome intentional]].]]
