Why not just call it "War Song"? I don't see any other licensed animes with that name...

Someone in the AnimeOnDVD forums brought up an interesting point that the titles given might have been due to miscommunication. The name change "Shadow Warrior Chronicles" might go with another of ADV's licensed title Shin Angyo Onishi which by the way makes A LOT more sense because it feature a male protagonist that can summon shadow warriors.

The other title in question is "Blade of the Phantom Mask", and you know that fits Utawarerumono rather well.

In short, hold off your bitching because ANN might have screwed up.

About the name change, Hakuoro - as we have seen when he asks 'who am i, what am i?" and the beast images only glimpsed, I would say the new name is good. Sure hope The DvDs from them are in WIDESCREEN MODE. god forbid they chop, crop, and stretch the chars off the screen, (causes top of head/hats to be missing) and things to look like ultra junk. anyway cant wait to see it.

After all this commotion, that would be a rather hilarious development. XD Someone on 4chan brought up the same point. Fan of the Mask?

Guys, before you get freaked out about the name-changing, keep in mind that I found it on 2chan and only on 2chan. It's probably reckless speculation at most.

"Blade of the Phantom Mask" is an upgrade and a half from "Shadow Warrior Chronicles," but I'm still not completely onboard.

I wouldn't take these rumored names seriously at all. It was probably someone joking on 2chan about them changing the names to bad ones.

For one thing, ADV has kept names similar in series like FMP, where there are some Japanese names. Also, another thing to note about the names, must of them do not contain the same amount of syllables. Eruuruu to Edna is one less, as is the case with Karura to Karla, Kamyu to Keith, well, Keith is a male name (lol), and Hakauro to Harry sure doesn't fit, either, so I wouldn't worry about these mock up names, probably made up in jest. I don't think they will even change up names.

There is some conversation about this over on AnimeonDVD.com as well as in English Dub IRC chat rooms, so you never know...sure, it may end up being reckless speculation, but let's hope it’s true. I also find it humorous that everyone wants the title changed so soon. Mass projectile revulsion.

I agree with Angelsama that in the end it is just a name of a show that in 2 years, none of us will think much about (disposable society), but since I'm buying the show when ADV releases it, I'd rather have it named "Blade of the Phantom Mask". Of course, that name makes me think of this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083366/ , but I’m not sure why.

Catgirls - Check on what i just posted above, and you'll see that Blade of the Phantom Mask belongs to the anime Shin Angyo Onshi, another anime ADV have got a hold off.

It just got licensed anyway. Who knows they might reconsider changing the title.

Unless ANN screwed up twice. It is largely fan contributed material.

Seeming as though ANN are actually at Otakon, i don't think so.

I take it you just don't wanna believe that Shadow Warrior Chronicles its the title for the R1's?

Hmm, I think it's really no big deal, if that is the title in the end, I said in an earlier post that I'm not fond of the name but said it is still the anime we all like very much in the end, and I'm happy to have it liscensed, but I would be pleased if a better name was chosen for the western market. However, I do think it may be possible that information has been miscommunicated, "Blade of the Phantom Mask" would fit, as Hakauro is a man with a brooding, dark, and mysterious past, and has a mask that he cannot remove, and is often in battle, and as someone mentioned, that other anime ADV liscensed is about someone who can summon shadow warriors. So, being that BotPM seems more appropriate for Utawarerumono and SWC seems more fitting for the other anime, it isn't out of the question that the western titles got mixed up between the two series. I think that is quite a possibility still, as this news emerged very recently, so I guess we'll have to wait awhile to see what the real case is with these series and the names ADV gives them for the western market.

I have no problems pronouncing Utawarerumono on it's own or in a Japanese sentence, but when I try to put it in an English sentence, it's a bit of a tounge twister. Sometimes when speaking in English, I shorten it to UtaMono.

For some reason, "Shadow Warrior Chroncles" reminds me of how Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind was initially renamed as "Warriors of the Wind" or something like that.
