    About Umineko - Full Cast Audio Dramatization

    What is Umineko?
    Umineko is a murder mystery visual novel that was originally released in 2007. The premise revolves around determining whether or not a series of mysterious, and seemingly impossible murders were committed by supernatural means. It combines many genres and themes with ease, naturally going from mystery to fantasy, being at times both uncommonly gruesome and sincerely sentimental. The story actually almost inherently lends itself to an audio format- There’s a large cast of charming and memorable characters, each with their own quirks and unique personalities. The story riffs on classic mystery tropes, taking place in a beautiful but eerie mansion, cut off from the rest of the world by a brutal storm. The original visual novel is actually very well known for it’s stellar sound design, which paints an incredibly vivid soundscape. The only thing I can think of that would build on that soundscape, would be a cast of talented individuals willing to bring these characters to life.

    What's the plan?
    Umineko was originally divided into eight individual Episodes. This project will begin by adapting the first Episode, Legend of the Golden Witch. If Legend is successful, we will continue to adapt the other Episodes as well. Legend of the Golden Witch will be divided into five chapters, ranging from 45-60 minutes per chapter. Each chapter will be uploaded to YouTube, and the completed audio drama will be available to download. The goal is to, hopefully, have Legend completed by mid August.

    What will it sound like?
    A very rough demo can be found here. Please note that the final product will be far more polished.

    Some things to keep in mind:
    • -You don't need to be familiar with Umineko to audition!
    • -Umineko has a seriously massive cast of characters- Even if you do not get the role you wanted, you'll have plenty of other opportunities for this project. Currently, we are only casting characters for Episode 1- And there are 8 episodes in total! Don't feel down if you aren't cast in the first episode, there's a lot more roles on the way!
    • -Accents of any kind are accepted. The characters are Japanese, speaking Japanese, living in Japan- I'm sure the audience can suspend their disbelief for an English Language audio drama.
    • -This is only casting for the first Episode, and thus, only characters from the first Episode will be open for auditions.

    • -Have fun!

    A WORD OF WARNING: Some of the audition lines and character descriptions may contain some spoilers for Umineko.
