Utawarerumono - うたわれるもの

Well I am happy. Very happy indeed XD

*dancing*

(I know the TV news was released back in mid-05, but it is good to actually see something about it in print.

Moonphse has it for Q206. This should be interesting.

Ooh, a new color page. The last magazine "article" on Utawarerumono I saw was a small B&W section in an issue of Megami with some character sketches. Unfortunately, Yuzuha's design looked rather odd :/

I'm really hoping they pull this off well, especially in the writing department. All they would really have to do is perhaps trim out a few character interaction details. The entire game story is linear and thus shouldn't need to be edited much to fit into the animated format.

The PS2 game is projected to come out around the same time as the animated series, but who knows? ^_^;

What would be really cool would be to introduce the characters the way some of the important characters were introduced in the game. That is, when the character first shows up, display a name tag on the screen. Now the big question is, will they add official romanizations of the names and if so, it would be very interesting to see if they'll go the Ainu route.

Considering this is a bishojou game oviously you have to fall for one of the girls, but just a quick question. Is there any actual romance in the story?
Its a bishojou anime, so i'll watch it whether it has romance or not, but still it would be nice.

The point of the game isn't really the romance. It gave me more of an epic impression. And no, you don't really go for any particular girl, since the story is linear. Everyone is involved in some fashion or another.

Besides, the interesting part of this game is the supposed world that they live in and the power relationships of that era. Not to mention the interesting characters Hakuoro and the gang meets during their adventures.

The trailer gave me an almost Suikoden 3-vibe, which I absolutely love. The character and wold designs are very strong and I'm anxious to see how it all plays out.

There is no trailer. The only official animation relating to Utawarerumono that I know of are the two opening sequences to the game. I still don't quite get why that got "fansubbed" since it had no lyrics and the only Japanese text was the title O_o;

A group usually does that to increase their roster, as a declaration that they intend to fansub the anime, or both. Fansubbing has become such a general term.

For the latter, there are better ways to do it other than simplying baking your group's logo onto some video file and distributing it. For example, you could just announce it on a page, or perhaps start writing up the background notes that you'll need once the show starts. Simply tagging a video as yours and distributing it doesn't really bring any extra benefit to the viewer, who could have just as well downloaded a copy of the original video.

Well, does anyone have guesses or wishes as to who the seiyuu will be for the unannounced roles (basically only Eruruw and Aruruw got announced)?

It brought extra value to me. I don't even go to fansubber's websites unless it's a very specific case and I certainly don't download random videos off the internet (one too many times it's been some underaged girl having sex with a dog or something) So I wouldn't have even seen that video if they didn't put it there. I'm greatful to them.

As for voices/expectations for the show... Well, I don't really have any for the voices. I don't tend to have a favourite or even ones I usually recognize much. However, as for the show itself, I have an expectation of a suprise 26 episodes and a lot of really beautiful landscape images. I also expect the ending theme to be very catchy while the intro song would be fairly mellow. I expect the comedy to be sparse and situational, like Air or such shows.

Actually, I just realized I have a lot of expectations for this all of the sudden. That's very rare for me.

Well, it is known that it is 26 episodes, so no surprise needed there For some reason, I have the opposite expectation for the OP/ED, although if they use lots of cliffhangers, your expectation would be more appropriate.

You read it wrong. It said the plan to animate this was announced July 1st, 2005. I would be seriously annoyed if they pushed back the air date from April to July.

Speaking of which, I just picked up vol 207 of Famitsu PS2 and it features a page of screenshots from the anime. Looks a lot simpler in terms of art style compared to the game, but overall not too shabby. The fight scenes have a lot of the classic striped "action" pattern in the background.

Here is a translated version of the story part from that page: http://kuuya.is.moelicious.be/story-e.html

Note: Hakuor should probably Hakuoro instead, as his name is comprised of both "white" and "king/lord," where the latter is pronounced オゥルォ, which seems to indicate the オロ is two distinct syllables instead of the second half being the ending consonant for the first CV pair.

Official site is now online:

Promo clip:
http://www.b-ch.com/free/aquaplus/utaware/index.html (choose from either 500k or 1M streams)

I have to say, the backgrounds sorta threw me off; they kind of remind me of old paintings, and felt kinda nostalgic. Kamyu just looks... too weird now <_<; Bonus points for all the characters they managed to show in the promo
Spoiler:
and also the arrow storm. Hakuoro still looks a bit funny, though. <_<

Very nice indeed. Its good to see that the character designs look very similar to Mitsumi's designs. So very nice indeed, though i'm geting Izumo vives.

to be honest, it really doesn't look that much better than the animated opening in the game.

don't hit me!

Just watched the first episode. Here are my thoughts:
The opening theme seems a bit too happy-go-lucky, but the overall timbre of the instruments they used fits very well with the background of the story. And that last long shot of Eruruw was just magnificient...
Spoiler for parts of episode 1:

Personally, I liked the ending theme more, because of its eccentric rhythm and exotic feel. Also, that ending picture was really nice, and you'll know what it stands for by the time the series ends, as it is very important.

Looking forward to episode 2...
