[[folder: ''Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni'' / ''Franchise/When They Cry 1 & 2'' ]]

* The defining song of the series would have to be [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4oRcLE7SMk You ~Destructive~]]. For added awesomeness, watch [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wP1jCpaKKs Akasaka's fight scene]] with this music.
** As well as the original "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjNVPO8ff84 You]]," one of the most heartbreaking songs in the series.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBMTy-EtfLM The instrumental version]] is just as powerful.
* Of the ''Dear You'' character song remixes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22kqCh2LtHY Dear You ~Kizuna~]] really stands out as the most beautiful and moving.
** Runner up is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXnRBokWmDo Kokoro Musubi]] for most emotional, especially Shion's part at the end.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEuJeNMDcQo Yui]] is pretty powerful.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSqH1t7qpLQ Assault Operations]] is Awesome Music for Akasaka and Kasai, but Funny Music for [[ButtMonkey Tomitake]].
* The reason some of the scenes in Tsumihoroboshi were so powerful was because of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuY_v9k9W0E Birth and Death]]. It got an equally heartbreaking remix in Umineko as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FAsbUm0hIQ My Dear]].
** That, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iu_V5rjbLG8 Uro]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imXd_Ip3KzM LIVE]] from Minagoroshi are otherwise known as [[TearJerker TearJerking]] [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Music]]. (And yes, Uro was in the fanmade Onikakushi video.)
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-12Det1bAcs Naraku no Hana]] is one of the most powerful and epic {{Anime Theme Song}}s ever.
* The two songs played in the climax of Tsumihoroboshi: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JR0SvgLy_D8 Mienai Nanika ni Obieru Yoru]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdEwKBM7jsw Samayoi no Kotoba wa Ten ni Michibikare]].
** Or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8uwxDihWcU Zero]], which played at the end of Tsumihoroboshi.
* Two of the most touching pieces in the soundtrack - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bO8nVzy2FeE Tsugunai no Kotoba]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXi48ffiWj0 Hitori]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mdCzjdoy0w Fearlessness]] [[HotBlooded lives up to its title]].
* Incredibly badass music titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zz7wX8n1tgg Cross-Examination]]? It seems ''Umineko'' isn't the only part of the series that's been playing too much ''Franchise/AceAttorney''.
* The first opening, appropriately titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9opZi6PluKI Higurashi no Naku Koro ni,]] shows exactly what the mood of the first season is like.
* Kizuna's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkNyT06aL1s Angelic Bright]] and Matsuri's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7qzxl2f73k Complex Image]].
** Matsuri's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5_ZSGdaBRE Nageki no Mori.]]
** Also from the Kizuna series, we've got [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZHIbUYH94A Tsuisou no Despair]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1tFlz8yHIM Place of Period]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3aZJjYQvck Hikari no Sora no Qualia]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEpZq8mT9Ts "Fascism"]].
** Also from the original visual novel, we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqEtLDN1Ohc Gear]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YRX1S6M4Ps Rainy Days]] (for the feeling of "something's fishy here" done very, very well), and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDdewvQmIko Silver Mirror]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oB7lctRjHZY Demonic Institute]].
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoFAbnFETtI "Dancers7"]]. You can really feel your mind running at the speed of light along with with Keiichi's, when it plays during [[spoiler: his planning of Teppei's murder in Tatarigoroshi]].It is surprisingly cold and dark, with a hint of fury, as a murderer needs to be.
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6Z8NGsA3r8 Saigo No Cycle]][[note]]The last cycle[[/note]] from Matsuribayashi is pretty epic, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgfxMGBa9Ks Shukusai]] from the [[{{Fingore}} nail-ripping scene]] in the VisualNovel is ear-gratingly awesome.
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23rJCJm3Hw8 Utu]] helped make already creepy scenes that extra touch to really scare the players.
* Many of the image songs are also SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic material, like Rika Furude's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qgk1X5ZvGA Mugen Kairou]] between the [[TastesLikeDiabetes cute beginning and end]] [[note]]As for the lyrics... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x08ICcJWDzc Not so sugar sweet now, is it?]][[/note]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aw2k3cRzUMo Bon Karma]] is the BigBad's Image song [[note]]It should go without saying to watch Kai before this[[/note]], and also qualifies. Rena and Hanyuu's songs are perhaps more cute than awesome.
* Matsuribayashi's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jBMV0OSFJQ Being]] Shows Hanyuu's determination to fight fate [[spoiler: and Takano]] in the final world, while [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nhjs3G1_MpU Festival]] is the theme of the Watanagashi festival that arc.
* From Matsuri, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgfKeqLDrD4 "Free"]] is a HUGE TearJerker when it's played. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXi48ffiWj0 "Hitori"]] is cute, but is just depressing when played in the Matsuri-only Taraimawashi-hen [[spoiler: when Mion becomes a ComatoseCanary]], and in the end of Tatarigoroshi-hen.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jv3MqnhWhec Shirokiri no Itadaki -Blanc Pur- (White Mist Peak -Pure White-)]] is cold, ominous, and incredibly fitting for the [[spoiler:Yamainu's attack]] in ''Minagoroshi-hen''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2z0wyugIHW8 "Solitude from Meakashi-hen"]] gives off exactly the described feeling.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjHPSn865d4 "Confession"]] stands out as one of the most tear-jerking songs to incorporate You into it.
* And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCOOftNV6TU "Conviction"]], which has the most beautiful and tear jerking piano opening ever.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32YZCMPyVbE Depressive Paranoia]] gives you a hint of what it feels like to be in a dark room filled with torture tools, listening to the gruesome stories of a NightmareFetishist PsychopathicWomanchild. A background music in all its glory: it's discreet but it doubles the tension.
* In the [=MangaGamer=] version, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJbfk_22ga0 Track 15]] (replacing Dancers 7) and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kXPTbc3j_A Track 16]] (replacing Lies Lies Lies) do their job extremely well. The former as a cold-blooded, fast and furious murder theme, the latter as a downright depressing funeral song. They arguably work better than the original musics in their respective contexts.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBBSq8edcBA Ode to the Moon]], a truly epic piano piece playing during [[spoiler:Takano's AGodAmI speech]] in Episode 7.

[[folder: ''Umineko No Naku Koro Ni'' / ''Franchise/When They Cry 3 & 4'' ]]


[[folder:Opening and Ending Themes]]
This wouldn't be a proper listing of all the awesome music in Umineko without getting into its epic opening and ending themes.
----
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_vGeHAM4gM Il giudizio vien dal mare e sta per essere emesso! Nessuno può liberarsi dal peccato, che scorre nelle vene!]]''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMM_BPTYglM OH DESIAH!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uz9pdxPYNw4 Umineko no Naku Koro Ni]], pure epicness ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WajcPobpVj8 full version]]).
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oa_lnHy-jFo As is the Rengoku version.]]
** ''[[MostWonderfulSound Senza amore,]] [[ArcWords senza amore,]] [[OneWomanWail la verità non si vede!]]''
* Episodes 5 and 6's opening: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpeUJbzWPBc Occultics no Majou]] (Occultics Witch).
** Now here's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LeGOT_pusSE full version]] in all of its awesomeness.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzoL_rK2kwM Kiri no Pitosu]] (Pithos in the Fog), opening for Episodes 7 and 8, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mqu9yzts8M the full version.]]
* The ending themes in the VisualNovel:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWDpCAt2LGI Bring the Fate]] (main story ending) and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSIeb1evImM Prison STRIP]] (Tea Party ending) from Episode 1.
** The ending of Episode 2, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zwf8OrZAEfY Senritsu ~ shirabe]]. A slow, mysterious and enchanting song, quite in contrast with the endings after that.
** The ending song of episode 3, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLiEQ3ml1sY activepain]] is pretty cool and catchy.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0eoydAWExc Discode]], the ending from Episode 4, is oddly catchy.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5H1GFlGDFzE Tsubasa, version Hope]] from Episode 5.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTXVblPUnhU Suspicious Aroma]] from Episode 6.
** The ending theme of [=EP7=]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3hZacCjwQ8 Namae no Nai Uta (The Song Without A Name)]]. There's also its [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzcYpXg7tYo full version]] from the Noblesse Oblige album.
*** Try also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZrLFLgabGU the piano version of this song]].
** And the grand ending theme, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWXoKFOj58c Byakumu no Mayu -Ricordando il passato-'']] (Cocoon of White Dreams ~remembering the past~), a very beautiful and touching song that perfectly captures the BittersweetEnding. If you don't end up in a sobbing mess when this song plays in the drowning scene, you're officially not a human being. Reading the lyrics just makes it worse.
* The opening of the fighting game, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MTmMprmZIw Ougon Musou Kyoku ~ Konjiki no Chi ni Somaru Mae ni]] (Dyed with Golden Blood).
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVrJDEPrULk The full version]]. Amazingly, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RO1UFtTbjSg full instrumental version]] works very well as a final boss battle music.
* If there is ever a reason to be excited for the upcoming PS3 re-make, ''Majou to Suiri no Rondo'', it would have to be its opening, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2S_IqT7MrbY Chikai Hibiki no Igreja.]]
* Ougon Musou Kyoku X's opening theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VuN3pAIvoU Ougon no Kiseki wo Kanaeru Made]] (Fulfill the Golden Miracle), and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9PBF_bwyzA its full version]] from the Dear Golden Witch album is just as epic as the opening of the PC version. It's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yajwWWt5ZKs instrumental version]] also serves as [[spoiler: Black Battler's]] boss theme.
* And now we have the opening theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgVcXpEj-No Inanna no Mita Yume]] ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inanna Inanna's]] Dream), to the Chiru PS3 remake, ''Nocturne of Truth and Illusions''. Its [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ku99AAyCDt8 full version]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4xcbt-WQUE the instrumental version]] from CROSS are equally awesome as well.
* Ougon's CROSS Expansion introduces [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObO_3aSakl8 It's Golden Showtime!]], a song many would say is even better than its two predecessors.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVS8BwsUiAc The instrumental version]] is just as good.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Dai]]
Dai is the music director for the Franchise/WhenTheyCry series, so unsurprisingly, several of the awesome tracks in the series also come from them:
----
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0J5LF2Udf20 Happiness of Marionette.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7s2Dwjbp_o "Umaretekite Kureta Arigatou"]] ("Thank you for being born").
** And as of Episode 6 it has been epically remixed in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCKSTFWYk5E Rebirth.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSwKw_oFP24 Ride On]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4j4hw9sJ-Y Mortal Stampede]] - simply epic.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_PDGz9egt4 Tsubasa]] was mindblowingly awesome. The vocal version is the ending theme for Episode 5, but when you [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5-sesG8xgs change those vocals to electric guitar]] you get a different but equally awesome remix.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rZBYbumldI Endless Nine]] aka [[LetsGetDangerous "Battler gets dangerous"]]. Featuring Microsoft Sam!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdQUjTC_vGs Dancing Pipe]] from Episode 3.
* The often forgotten OTHER piece from Episode 3's climax - the one that isn't Tsubasa, but is just as good: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeGhE7roQ0Q Lost Paradise]]. (Or is that Paradise Lost?)
** Really, all of the songs with little parts of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOq7ZNTPVug "Hope"]] are good. More precisely: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nx27VFmbtHk Tomorrow]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYHy3VnZRp0 Core]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tvhkpa9ud0 White Shadow]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnACsCe2g-E My Dear]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPJXp3xPglY Revolt]] from Episode 4.
* Umineko is also so good at this that it makes piano-driven pieces into epic CMOA. See [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7U209xHIvW8 Answer]] (just wait about 40 seconds if you don't hear it) and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSKWf_20Lkg dir]].
** Answer got [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUdT1H-LIDs EXTENDED]] by about 40 seconds in the PS3 version.
** For more piano-y goodness, [=EP6=]'s "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BhvHC6DU6I Life]]".
*** Another really wonderful one from the same game is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DQQME1IDWU ALIVE]]. There's a third track too in this game called "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGgnNl9zbuc Rebirth]]." You noticing a pattern here?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wydVCUL9QLg Promise]], from Episode 5. Given it's less Awesome Music and more Tearjerking Music, if you know why...
** The PS3 Version has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVXe-9XB5FY new remake of Promise]].
* A great remix of "Happiness of Marionette" (with some "Promise" thrown in) called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0EPDV562wg "Engage of Marionette".]] It's the last music you hear before the final credits roll.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zq-HbOF1xvI Final Answer]] from Episode 5.
* Still from Episode 5 is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvTCklQ-isI JUSTICE]], which notably plays when [[spoiler:Battler revives and ascends to the rank of Endless Sorcerer]] in the the Hidden Tea Party.
* Sakutaro's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68ODs3BPr4o Sakutarou no Ganbarimonogatari]], which incorporates a marimba version of Door to Summer and happiness of marionette for a BGM so adorable that just listening to it will give you diabetes.
** And to be sure diabetes kill you for good, there is little Ange's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJLOsoGXST8 Nuigurumi]], playing during the quizz mini-game in Episode 8.
* Dai's half of the OST, "Musicbox Blue" and "Musicbox Kiri no Pithos" (shared with Luck Ganriki), have a load of tracks that weren't used in the games yet at the time of its release; several of them have shown up in the games since, so the others may yet be used. Unfortunately, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnSJ6oz8mrc Oku]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YQtUIyhmsU Black Knight]] were not among those that get into ''Twilight of the Golden Witch'', but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1G9rw4XyBE Hishou (Soar)]] did in Episode 8. Also, Black Knight is used in 7th Expansion's next big work, ''RoseGunsDays''.
* Similarly, the previously unreleased track [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56-3lRH7cfA Mata Umarekawaru Hi Made]] (until the day we're reborn), a beautiful mix of ''Umaretekitekurete Arigatou'' and ''happiness of marionette''.
* A song the title of which may be a thank you to all the readers of Umineko: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LK-39ZNTX7g Thanks of all people.]]
* From episode 6 we have the beautiful yet sad [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0SwT7cmPPE Loreley.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMGa71r1sdY Tomorrow's awesome orchestral arrangement]] in the Fighting game ''Ougon Musou Kyoku''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: ZTS ]]
The doujin music composer ZTS also makes several tracks in Umineko, and they have the trademark of making at least one incredibly epic piece per episode.
----
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAupQUUglkU goldenslaughterer]] from Episode 1.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-vMgaXs7Fk worldenddominator]] from Episode 2.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqZfXUg4kaM miragecoordinator]] from Episode 3.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cK6MK3LTGG4 dreamenddischarger]] from Episode 4.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqjm6QZOeUs resurrectedreplayer]] from Episode 5, a remix of goldenslaughterer with some bits of "Far" in the middle.
* Episode 6 brings us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QTgPfN-GcA liberatedliberater]].
* Another remix of goldenslaughter is the fantastic [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5xbikQ5TOg the_executioner]] in EP 7. The beginning sounds like the awakening of a dragon, prompting you to start running for your life.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_v4lNf4_fo lastendconductor]] from Episode 8.
* From Episode 3, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rd5Vt_qct0s Far]]. Starts slow and sweet, then ascends to a really heartwarming violin piece. Its Episode 7 piano remix, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nivz895rGYc Far (Flat)]], is equally awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGwL97BRAOE Deadangle]], and its breathtakingly pretty remix, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hJ7SfceTWw Discolor]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUeuouV4SJk Death (from Stupefaction)]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wZHeQL-cVg Rain]] from [=EP7=], a [[TearJerker heartbreaking]], melancholic song that fits its title.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrmr_vHpZI8 Ridicule]], a fantastically creepy track from [=EP7=].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBo7QL__wZQ Dive to Emergency]] from [=EP4=] wouldn't sound out of place in ''[[{{Naruto}} Naruto Shippuden]]''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpMOfYIAo5s How]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fH2p8S5GNAM about]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKGth0tx4xk orchestral]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9snMOt-nsi8 remixes]] of already fantastic tracks by Glasun-Neko?
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Luck Ganriki]]
* To start off, we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyzV_zgmT50 Organ Short #600 Million in C Minor]], Beato's {{Leitmotif}}, and its remixes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Y5m8QS0c8o HIBUTA]] from Episode 4 and its Ougon Musou remix, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqEU1hMBlB4 HIBUTA 2011]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZB7aTrX2bE Smile-less soiree]] is a musical illustration of the stifling atmosphere on Rokkenjima from Episode 5.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcTxd5qQChw Deep Blue Jeer (Ao Shoku no Reishou)]], the leitmotif of the man from 19 years ago in Episode 5.
** The Ougon Musou remix, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzyDJrdoGXc Aoiro no Reishou 2011]] is also awesome, if even darker than Umineko's main MindRape theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAkvF7HkFEY Birth of a New Witch]] from Episode 6.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clP4e6x-4hU The vocal version of this song.]] Used to great effect during the final scene of EP6.
* Beatrice's [[ImageSong Image Song]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70klHdh8l8o Golden Nocturne]] is pretty awesome by itself. So why not make it even more awesome by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnTwpWn-7IM stripping the vocals and turning it into an awesome BGM?]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30kl0eCtbcU Usan no Kaori (Suspicious Aroma)]], and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTXVblPUnhU vocal version]] used as Episode 6's ending theme.
* And of course, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utPpd8q-xpM Happy Maria]] and its [[{{Mondegreen}} infamously incomprehensible lyrics]] (which, incidentally, has a totally badass [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02KaUff0HEo rock version]]. Kihihihihihi!).
[[/folder]]

[[folder: -45 ]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93VODUlLuRk System0]] and the aforementioned [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aT7mdBmN2So Prison STRIP]] from Episode 1.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhNzAXhDbfo Akai Kutsu Nise]] (Fake Red Shoes) from Episode 3.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uy6rfyZwnU The Girls' Witch Hunt]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggn8riHTDqw Kuina]], and the tense yet catchy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dORf0tLaSn8 Tsugihagi Kimera]] from Episode 5.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVy9wQYV5-8 Totenblume]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXeclBNp0Q8 ACI-L]] from Episode 5 as well.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dbl6ysbQh6o Infant Queen Bee]] from Episode 6 is equally awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQ97g2SMY7c Yomotsu Hirasaka Corruption]] from Episode 7.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsRqyaHLeRY Solitary Deep Sea Fish]], which plays when Battler utters his catchphrase in [=EP5=] after [[spoiler: everyone in the parlor labels Natsuhi as the culprit.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Kitaōji Mizuki]]
A composer from the Glasun-neko circle. Seems to provide mostly awesome orchestral themes.

----

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZYGGfhxeRY String Quartet #1 in G Major - I. Allegro]] from Episode 1's Tea Party, light and joyful.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z92IxhjiNs Like the Gale]], which plays when Amakusa comes to rescue Ange.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sA-qw4Q2fE0 Rengoku Kyoukyousoukyoku]] from the escape sequence of Episode 4.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOFgnKn_T2g Waltz op.34]] from Episode 6.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GICj8tVx0lQ Hanma Sequentia]], which plays during [[spoiler:[[HesBack Beato's return]]]] in Episode 6.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srAkT72YhCc Kaiki Divertimento]] from the climax of Episode 8.
And in a different register:
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKbZtXB4UJ4 Ruriair]] from episode 6.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EiUjogfu2Kw Lixaxil]] from Episode 8.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other composers]]
* First off, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tICKoZ18zHk Dread of the Grave]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqrTHd49aJ0 Dread of the Grave -more fear-]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xy7QcdNuQrI Dread of the Grave (Rhythm)]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y03OC80eDXc Dread of the grave -more fear- (Remix)]].
** By the same composer of Dread of the Grave: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jS4oJi4U9IQ Victima Propiciatoria]] from Episode 4.
* From the very beginning of episode 1, you have the heart-rending stillness of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IU4dXsOcEos Slow Motion]] which feels like looking out a sunlit window, and catching sight of a solitary butterfly. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plZX3cD_BLk Tekuteku]] Captures the regal, somber air of the Ushiromiya household.
* Among the epic piano music in the Umineko series, special honor goes to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IO9AKnb1vww The End of the World]].
** There's a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHq6BCdoj_0 vocal version]] as well that adds awesomeness to awesomeness.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FT2CRNt-hRc Kin'iro no Choushou ~Uruwashi no Bansan~]]. Basically, if Music/AkikoShikata sings it, it's guaranteed to be awesome.
