Notes: I think it’s unlikely Sayo/Beatrice’s problems could be magically solved with a snap of fingers… or better just by finally marrying Battler… but I think that, with given time, they could dim and finally allow her to reach happiness.

Another video about Umineko since it's damn easy to fit Umineko manga scenes to Vocaloid songs... there's plenty of Vocaloid songs who can be remade in Umineko style... (*sighs* I wish it was the same with TB/X).

In case you don't remember what Umineko is...
Umineko starts as a visual novel, but, for the first 4 arcs exists a also anime (not really great... -_-) and the 8 arc are being transposed into manga version, a manga for each arc. The manga versions are much better than the anime but sadly the manga hadn't been finished yet.

So yes, if you want to get into Umineko read the visual novel. The English patch for all the games has been finished and although the art isn't pretty the music is great.

Anyway, back to the MMV... this time it's vaguely based on the vocaloid video "Cinderella -another story-" with a HUGE amount of spoilers on the last chapters of the manga.

Generally I leave the video up to the viewers' interpretation but, in this case, I think it'll be better to explain things as who hadn't read the manga might find difficult to figure out what's going on. Of course you're free to come up with your interpretation as well.

The story opens with Tohya (at the end of Umineko we discovers that Battler survived but lost his memory and became Hachijo Tohya) who, despite being tormented by his memories (and in a way by the witches), decided to face them (at the end of Umineko we'll learn Tohya will go to the Fukuin house where Ange has rebuilt the Ushiromiya main house hall, complete with Beatrice's portrait).
As he sees the portrait he manages to finally give a face to the memories over which he was obsessing.
In case you're wondering the candy, that is waved like a magic wand, can be seen as one of the halloween candies that were being distributed to the kids at the Fukuin house but in truth it's the memory of the candy that Maria gave him and that he shared with Sayo when they were in the underground tunnel. In a way it also represents Lambda who rewarded his determination to certainly face his memories.
Anyway, Tohya finally manages to connect to his memories of Sayo, put some order into them and accept that in the past he was Battler.

Past 2 instead starts with Beatrice. When Sayo died she woke up in the purgatory with the semblance of Beatrice. In the beginning she remembers who she truly was, Sayo, how she was suffering due to the various happening of her life, what happened on the island and how Battler tried to support her, claiming she wasn't to blame, taking responsibility for what had happened, trying to take her away from Rokkenjima promising he would take care of her from now on and following her when she drowned herself.
Sadly though, Battler is with her in the purgatory but something went wrong. In a way Battler is split in two, his body still alive but suffering amnesia will take the identity of Hachijo Tohya, while Battler's soul, who's with her, is also suffering amnesia and doesn't remember her anymore.
In short, the Battler she loved isn't with her anymore and in the end, she'll give up on seeing him again short before he'll finally manage to remember everything, disappearing.
Battler will become BATTLER and, to be honest, Sayo hadn't completely disappeared as a part of her is still with him in the form of chick Beatrice but, at first, he can't accept her, nor she can remember who she was before, even though she's still hurting inside.
Flashback to the time the two spent together in the meta, to the good moments they had and how Beatrice, despite everything, couldn't give up on him, on the boy who went so far as trying to save her when she drowned herself.

Parallel to how both Tohya and Beatrice suffered through all this and how they're still tied together by the promise that they made as a child that remained unfulfilled.

Reincarnation time. Time goes on and the two manages to meet again. They manage to recognize each other and this time they'll manage to get married.

Happy ending.

Okay, thanks to the awesome sumeragimikoto we managed to piece together a script for the Tokyo Babylon 1999 movie. Sadly though the script is missing some tiny bits here and there. So it would be awesome if someone else were to come to our help and help us to fill the missing sentences so as to have a complete script.


Therefore, if you can, please, give this a try.

In case you don't remember what Umineko is...
Umineko starts as a visual novel, but, for the first 4 arcs exists a also anime (not really great... -_-) and the 8 arc are being transposed into manga version, a

manga for each arc. The manga versions are much better than the anime but sadly the manga hadn't been finished yet.

So yes, if you want to get into Umineko read the visual novel. The English patch for all the games has been finished and although the art isn't pretty the music is great.

Anyway, back to the MMV... this time it's a remake of some sort of the vocaloid video "Yumekui Shirokuro Baku" which heavy focus on Sayo.

Generally I leave the video up to the viewers' interpretation but, in this case, I'll clarify some things.

Although technically the scenes depicted Battler, the one with the cape isn't Battler but Black Battler. You can recognize him from the red eyes (I've kept Battler's eyes blue) and the fact that clothes have a purplish colour, opposed to the fact I've kept Battler's one having a reddish tinge.
Metaphorically speaking he represents Sayo's fantasy.
In my interpretation of the video Sayo began abandoning herself to fantasy as a way to cope with the things that went wrong with her life, ence she started being visited by the Yumekui who 'ate' the bad things to replace them with pretty dreams. It starts tame enough with her seeing Battler as the prince of her dreams who'll take her away (when actually Battler is just a kid with a crush on her but no power whatsoever to save her, at least not at the moment), but this dream crashes over as Battler leaves the Ushiromiya and, as she also gets uncomfortable with the status of her body, she ends up unable to handle the situation. So the Yumekai again replaces her current unpleasant reality with a dream in which she's Beatrice, a beautiful witch from whom Battler would surely return. Sayo though lost control of her dreams and begins to wish for more and more.
However she ends up discovering the truth about herself and this shatter not only her dreams but her as well.
The Yumekai comes to help her again and she tries to go back to her old, true dreams, for Battler to return, marry her, live with her and them having a baby but her dreams keeps crashing down. Now that she knows the truth she can't dream anymore.
She however keeps thinking that the Yumekai will help her but when he comes to her again it turns out this won't be the case. The Yumekai had eaten the bad things in her life, replacing it with pretty dreams, but ultimately, because she lulled herself in her dreams and didn't make anything to turn her into reality, they become nothing else but other food for the Yumekai.
Unable to dream anymore Sayo returns to her original form as the Yumekai reveals itself for being nothing else but an illusion created by Lambda (which represents her certainity that she won't be happy in reality ence her escaping into a fantasy words). There will be no miracles that will change what she is, and she can't accept this truth (which is why Bern, witch of miracle, and Erika, witch of truth, laughs of her along with Lambda).
Tormented by the fact she has no more dreams, she's certain she won't be happy, that no miracle will save her and that she can't accept this truth, Sayo loses herself and...
... and technically the video was supposed to end here as this song isn't supposed to have a happy ending but... but I couldn't bear it so... so Battler, the real one, finally returns to offer her his support and this is enough to allow her return dreaming... (her eyes that from blue went grey return blue)... and this could be the end...
But I couldn't resist letting viewers trying to interpret something so do your pick on what the very last scene, with Sayo smiling with her eyes close means.
Is she just happy? Was the happy ending again a dream given to her by the Yumekai? Did she still couldn't bear reality and so killed herself (as the Umineko ending seems to imply) but died happy because Battler returned for her? Something else? Do your pick.
Last but not least viewers might have noticed that 'dreams' have the shapes of Kakera. It seemed fitting as in a way dreams are a world/reality of their own.

Okay, so chapter 5 was meant to be the final chapter (same as chapter 2, chapter 3 and chapter 4… I’ve the feeling this fic has grown slightly out of proportions… to think the initial idea was to make it a one shot… -_-) but as we’ve reached only half of the plot it was supposed to contain despite to its length I guess a chapter 6 is in order. Let’s hope this one will be the last one. Many apologies to all the ones who had to wait so long to see this chapter (if they’re still around) and let’s hope I’ll manage to write the next chapter. Also, if you’re still around, thank you for sticking with this fic for such a long time.

According to CLAMP no Kiseki Seishiro's and Subaru's Shiki are so described:

Subaru's:

Subaru no Shikigami Ga Shiroi Reicho No Sugata (昴流の式神が白い霊鳥の姿): Subaru's Shikigami has the shape of a white sacred bird

I've been told Garuda is called a Shiroi Reicho in Japan... and the way they draw Kurama-Oh's bird in RG Veda, also called Garuda (you can see it here) is rather similar to how Subaru's Shiki is drawn (yes it's not exactly the same but sure Subaru's Shiki looks closer to it than to a crow).

Seishiro's:

Seishiro no Shikigami Ga Seikan Na Moukin No Sugata (星史郎の式神が精悍な猛禽の姿): Seishiro's Shikigami has the shape of a fearless bird of prey.

So no, CLAMP never said if it was an eagle or an hawk or... something else. If I look at its pictures it resembles a Mountain hawk-eagle which is a species that exists in Japan... but of course CLAMP might have preferred to leave what Nandarou was in the dark in the same way they did with its name.
