Well, they could have wrapped up the whole Urutori baby story within 15 min. The ep felt really slow due to that. At least it was still enjoyable to some degree. I absolutely love the OP/ED songs. I never been so addicted to anime music since.. the original Utawarerumono OP.

Any idea when the next episode hits as of yet? Loved the first episode but wished it was much longer 40 mins felt short for a return. Otherwise cute art style, fantastic fan serves, and breathtaking opening.

It says 12/23 for chapter 2 AND 3. Not sure if it's a typo. It's been up for a while and they haven't changed it, though on the radio they only mentioned chapter 2.

I'm pretty sure that's a mistake of some kind. The third volume has got its own table on that page giving prices and codes for the DVD, Blu-ray, etc.

All you had to do was look back one page...

By the way, just as an update, the second volume in the OVA series has actually been scheduled and will be released on 23 December 2009. I haven't seen anything yet about what will be covered in the new volume, but I guess we'll see soon enough. The third and final volume in the series will be released in Spring 2010.

秘恋の処方箋, Prescription for a Secret Love(?)

Seems like it's something about Eruru getting "kidnapped" to heal Kamuchataru's "illness". PS2 material?

PS: C77 will have a character song album along with the usual drama CD.

PS2 characters, that's for sure. The story itself seems to be original. Eruruw (and indeed most of the cast) was not involved at all in the PS2 bonus arc as it took place during the trip to Karura's country. I'm not looking forward to more of Nopon as his seiyuu annoyed the carp out of me in the game, but I am overjoyed at getting more Utaware regardlessly.

Well, the second OVA is out. I found it rather disappointing after the first one; it was more like a gag episode whereas the first episode at least made an attempt at telling a serious story. Then again, I might be biased because Nopon annoys me to no end and they stuffed up Kamyu's design in a couple of shots.

Also, more gratuitous and this time even more irrelevant fan service.

Here's hoping for a better third episode. I hate to think that we're down to the last one already. Part of me is still clinging to that last bit of hope for some Mutsumi love, but chances are better we're finishing off with a bunny girl episode.

I always thought they rushed Mutsumi's storyline in the original. There was just so much to forced into those last episodes, so it never really explained in the anime as well as it should have been. I don't think we'll see more of it though because it would be hard to interact with the main character group.

I am not sure we'll see more from Kyuu either though, because again, they want to highlight as many characters as possible. At least that's my thought. I noticed Karura didn't get any screen time in this go around, nor did Utorii. I think they are trying not to play favorites.

I'd actually venture Touka as a possible choice from the next episode. She didn't even have a single line in the second episode. Truthfully, I don't care who it is about as long as it is entertaining and well done.

This is probably my favorite full-blown fantasy series of all time--interesting characters, decent battles, well developed world, fun side stories, one of the better romances I've seen, and even a bit of philosophy on living. The swords and socerery motif is what originally enticed me to watch anime, so I've seen quite a bit. So even if it isn't quite as good as the original, it is always fun to return to it. I dread the it is 2/3 complete now. I certainly wouldn't mind more!

I know what you mean. I suppose I should be happy that she's even in the new opening at this point. Gosh, Leaf so enjoys teasing me about this.

Though Kuuya and Sakuya at least have a chance to feature. They could always flash between Kunnekamun and Tuskuru like they did in one of the drama CDs.

You know, I think the problem, at least for me, is that I loved the original so much (a story which was already too large for a mere 26 episodes) that a mere three episode bonus can't possibly live up to my expectations. Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed the ride so far, it's just such a pity that there isn't more.

Am I the only one who found this god dam awful ? I've dropped it halfway thu the first episode to avoid ruining my likeness of the series.

Let me add a disclaimer before I start. These are my views on the OVAs as someone who enjoyed Utawarerumono very much. infact I recently re-watched it and even moved it from and 8, to a 9.

Where to start.
That characters we sooooo out of character it wasnt funny. Its like they all had totally different personalities. Not one of them reminded me how they were in the Utawarerumono series. Thats so upsetting for someone who enjoyed the main series.

There are people who are suppose to be dead, actually being alive. Dont know how that happened but oh well. Maybe the winged prieste casted a ressurrect spell. Maybe that would make more sence.

I didnt completely watch the battle. I skimed thu it because I was so disgusted. Why did the winged priest (who is the leader of all the priests) attack her own friends. Someone could of got killed. Or maybe someone did, I dont know, I didnt stick around to find out. Shes suppose to be the elder priest now and what does she do ? she goes violent!. Once again, shes soo far out of character, its just plain awful to watch.

Ive given it a score of a deserving 3 and it has been dropped, because I want to remember Utawarerumono as a wonderful series. I dont want it ruined by this type of crap.

Well I spoke my mind didnt I.

Really hope I'm not the only one that feels this way <.<

I would be lying if I denied that I'm somewhat disappointed with the OVA myself, however I disagree with each of your criticisms.

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the series so much. I give it a 10 myself.

Who was out of character? From the rest of your post, I presume you mean Urutori, and I'll address that below. But who else was out of character and how? I love the main series myself, and I didn't notice any of this.

Don't be an idiot. The OVA obviously takes place in mid-series, not after the main series.

She attacked her friends because she felt very attached to the baby. It's her mothers' instinct. She probably seems out of character to you because, well, in the main series she doesn't really reveal much of her true personality, and in the OVA there isn't enough time to show much of her relationship with the child.

If you want to criticize the OVA for "crap", why don't you start with those horrible and completely superfluous bath scenes? Or all the minutes wasted showing Karura quietly drinking sake when there's already not enough time to cover the entire arc!

They all were. They all had changed personalities. I've tried to forget so it wont ruin my experience, but if I really need the explanation, I might take a quick squzzy thu the episode.. From what I remember Hakuoro was made to look like those character you would find in an ecci herem. In the main series hes a strong, responsible character and quite serious. Big personalty change there. Kaurla in the OVA was made out to be a shit stirer, when Eruruu came up the ladder she hugged Hakuoro to attack Eruruus feelings she obvouslly knows about. In the main series Kaurla knows about the loving relationship between the two and respects it. She more of less only teases Eruruu about being in love directly to her. Not to cause jelously. Another personality change there. Touka, well I dont know how to explain that one, but shes different again.

Eruruu, she does get mad ever so often and its quite cute, but when she gets upset, she pretty much sulks to herself. To me in the OVA they were trying to make her Tsundere which is not her personality. She would of more or less sulked when Kaurla rattled her. Aruruu, well I dont know how to explain that one best either. She just isnt the same from the main series.

I dont know if I explained very well, but those are just some of the reasons

ima so critic because I <3 the cast alot. And to see them being degraded only just for fanservice is just......... sad sad sad.

They could of done something better if they wanted to do something mid way of the series.

Well I didnt know what to say about that. I do aggree that didnt have a place in the anime. It was like they wanted to add porn to the anime. Not the reason I watched Utawarerumono. but the degraded characters is what hurt it the most.
