Reliving Umineko: The Mysterious Magic Circle
"It’s a magic circle to borrow the power of the sun. He who wears it as a talisman drawn in gold shall be able to break free from the bonds of any prison, and receive the power to gain freedom. The word ‘bonds’ is not limited in its interpretation to some kind of physical object. Therefore it does not only hold meaning for people locked up in an actual jail. It can also refer to the release from mental bonds such as ties of obligation and inescapable fate. It’s not like the magic circle was drawn for their sakes. The six of them were there for the sake of the magic circle. It is truly pitiable. Kihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihi. That’s written around the circumference. Can’t you read it? Psalms, chapter 116, verses 16 and 17. I’ll read it for you. ‘The Lord has freed me from my chains. I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call on the name of the Lord‘ ……See?"
