Umineko: When They Cry/Memes

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.


Since Umineko no Naku Koro ni is in the same franchise as Higurashi, memes were bound to happen.

When a certain team of translators began releasing their patches, even more memes were bound to happen, considering how it usually works with visual novels.

And then when about half the cast started trolling not only the other characters but the readers themselves...well, look down.

Please add entries in the following format:
