I need to redownload this and try again. Right when I got it last time my computer died on me and I had to reformat it, then never got around to downloading it again.

I think an updated version of the translation is coming out soon, so you should wait a little longer for that and then get started. Eps 1 and 2 in particular have worse translations than the rest and have been going through a lot of editing and retranslating.

Here's a reference list in case anyone wants to get into VNs after Umineko.

Sad stories:
Clannad
Kana Imouto
Narcissu

Brainfuck stories:
Ever 17
Cross Channel
Saya no Uta

Good stories:
Yume Miru Kusuri
Tsukihime's Far Side
True Remembrance

Stories with funny scripts but not much else:
Snow Sakura
Brass Restoration
KiraKira

Only partially a VN:
Utawarerumono
Castle Fantasia 2

Not all safe for work, but if you're reading at a place where it matters, you have other things to worry about.

The updated translation is out, by the way. Ep 6 may be a while longer because apparently the lead translator is an asshole. Long story.

I'd also say that Fate/stay Night is considered a must-play VN, though I think in some ways it had the potential to be even cooler than it was. Though I technically haven't finished all the routes. >_> Even UBW has its problems, though. But it's worth checking out after Tsukihime, which was made by the same people and also seems to be one of the most praised VNs. (It's just better to play them in the order they were made.)

It's okay. You're not missing much. Heaven's Feel has more or less two good scenes.

Episode 6 translation imminent. The good news is that Ep 7's translation will most likely be MUCH faster, due to some people from GameFAQs who are helping with the translation. (Ep 7 comes out in Japan in August.)

I just realised today that the parallels in story and some characters between Umineko and The Way are far greater than the obvious similarities I had been thinking of that me me recommend it. It would be a spoiler for me to explain anything, though... and a lot of it is just theory at this point, much like it was for The Way.
