Kinzo. Fuck you.
Kinzo Ushiromiya; the patriarch of the (in)famous multi-billion dollar Ushiromiya family. He’s a superior demon summoner and black magic user, owner of the private island of gold: Rokkenjima, diligent businessman, and an abusive, psychotic piece of shit. This man, boy. Let me tell you why I hate this how horrible dude.
Prior to the Umineko series, he lost his lover, Beatrice Castiglioni (who died during childbirth) and was grief stricken. Honoring her, he named their (illegitimate) daughter “Beatrice”, after the mother. Cool. Whatever helps you overcome grief . What’s not fucking cool was Kinzo raping and impregnating his teenage daughter – because she resembled his lover.
That’s fucking sick.
Oh, it gets worse. This wouldn’t be the last time he abused his children. Yes. Children. I did say Beatrice was his love child. So, what about his real children? Well, to “toughen up” the others (Kruass, Eva, Rudolf, and Rosa) for the real and business world, he physically, emotionally and psychologically abused them. Naturally, his abusive ways caused his children to disdain him. Worse, his children would pass down the cycle of abusive towards their own, and in many causes, the siblings would abuse each other – Kruass (the eldest) being the worst offender.
Due to Kinzo’s abusive parenting and teachings, Krauss emulated his dad’s abuse. He would emotionally bullying his little sister, Eva (as well as being sexist towards her). This created much disdain in and anger in her heart, which she passes down to her husband, the kind-hearted Hideyoshi (who loves Eva to death), and her only child, George. Further in the future, Eva passes the abuse down to her niece, Ange, but more on her later. Let’s focus on Eva’s sister, Rosa.
Rosa (just like her only sister Eva), was too abused by not only Kinzo and Krauss, but her other siblings as well (due to her status as the youngest). Lacking someone to hurt in their family to soothe her rage, she had nobody to further the chain of abuse, until she had her daughter, Maria. Rosa (never recovered or attacking her pain in a healthy matter) starts to abuse Maria, verbally and physically beating her.
See how Kinzo’s chain of abuse goes further? Kinzo abuses Krauss, whom abuses Rosa, who in turn abuses her daughter, Maria. Now his grandchildren are affected by the abuse her created. Speaking of his grandchildren, let’s go back to
series best girl Ange.
So Ange. Her entire family (sans Eva) was massacred on Rokkenjima (due to Kinzo’s bullshit), leaving her orphaned. Eva, being the “good” aunt that she is, adopts Ange. The two somewhat got along, until the stress of her family’s deaths (as well as the media accusing her for their murders) took its toll on her. Eva in turn, took her anger out on Ange, putting her through the same abusive treatment as her father did her. This ruined Ange’s already troubling mental state. Due to Eva’s abuse (among other things), Ange would grow to hate herself, becoming suicidal. In one scene, Ange is seen lashing out on her best friend, Mammon and her sisters. She calls them “useless” and wish that they all die.
Even after his death, Kinzo’s abusive cycle continues.
Remember how I said that the massacre of Rokkenjima was due to Kinzo’s bullsht in the last paragraph? Well, Kinzo is not above having his own family members killed for his own desires.
As mentioned earlier, Kinzo dedicated his life to learning summoning and black magic, and studying occult spells. His plan was to master black magic in order to revive Beatrice. Not his lover Beatrice, but their daughter. The same daughter that he raped. He wants to see her once more So, he successfully revives Beatrice, right? However, as exchange for her revival, Kinzo must sacrifice a few people.
Kinzo selects his own family members as sacrifices. He seems them as vultures after his riches. He believes his nether children nor his grandchildren gives a damn about him (as they rightfully should not), and wants them all dead. Beatrice kills them for him, nad in turns – kills her abuser Kinzo.
Kinzo if you think about it, is the main source of his entire family’s pain and suffering, from him raping his daughter, abusing his children. The same abuse in which was passed on to his kids down to their own. By direct and indirection action, he ruined his family.
Fuck you Kinzo.
Whew. I didn’t expect this post to go on that long, but I figure I would provide details and proof to show how much I despise this dude. This would had been much longer if I would had gotten drunk to write about how much I hate Kinzo as I originally planned lmfao (all the liquor stores in my area were closed at the time of writing the first draft.. You know those 3 o’ clock A.M. alcohol laws can be.
Fuck you, Kinzo.
