The title of Episode 24 is "the guy who go to die"
The title of Episode 25 is "A historical ruin"
The title of Episode 26 is "Utawarerumono"

I just translate them by myself, do not laugh me =口=!

Thanks leaf., title of episode 26 is interesting. And ominous.

Going on the track record of this series so far, I'm thinking this will be most likely.

I believe they will drop a few things from the storyline in order to cram and process everything from the flashback arc, which is, IMO, the crux of the series' mysteries. However, if they do it so, I think they'll have to pull a Gundam Seed Destiny on us - make the penultimate eps all dialogue then only have the last one action-packed, which would make the contrast so hard it'd be almost painful.

And I'm beginning to agree with Zaris about the final ep. They'd have to drop the epilogue (what happens to every character after the last battle) and end the series on a certain event
Spoiler:
in order to make it in time...
...Unless they decide to increase the last ep's length to 30 mins or suddenly - and painfully - drop news of an OVA on our heads to explain how they're going to circumvent the whole timing issue.

But if they do what I just said above (before the spoiler tag), then I fear we'll end the series on a very sad/bittersweet note (the game does, too, but for other reasons)...or we'll be left hungering after a true conclusion.

And...
...Since the flashback arc shan't be compressed (otherwise we'll understand nothing about the UM universe and Hakuoro's past)...I'm particularly afraid about what shall become of the series' final action parts...which, IMO, should have taken a particular focus from the staff.
Spoiler:

It's like, you know, shooting a movie about WWII but ending it before the true, interesting climax - namely, D-day and the nuclear bombings.

Well, you can find plenty of ways around violent endings. Some of the best movies I've seen don't resolve with killing one another, but mind you, it is the simplest resolution that goes as far back as when man made fire. :O

I wouldn't be surprised if the climax of Utawarerumono occured in either one of the following ways:
Spoiler:


No matter the outcome, I'm sure they'll make it fit...or die trying. :P

I was watching again from the start. 2 thing I began to wonder about what race is Benawi and How does Urutori know Karura cause in quite few episode they seem to be pretty friendly toward each other.

I'll quote something I posted in an earlier episode thread...
Urutorii is a princess from a race of people who serve as diplomats and mediators for the other empires, plus she has been trained as an ambassador and negotiator herself. Given what we learn about Karura in episode 18 - and with more no doubt to be revealed in episode 19 - it is reasonable to assume that Urutorii recognized Karura and knew who she really was.
Since we found out in episode 19 that Karura was originally a princess and also was from a racial group that had almost been wiped out, it makes it even more likely that Urutorii figured out who she was very quickly. It's also quite possible that the two had met before if Urutorii's father had been to Na Tunk while Karura's family still ruled the country.

Thank you Furudanuki I guess I didn't take into account Urutorii race and their dealing with other nation. What you say it very logical reason to why they act friendly toward one another.

I'm starting to think that the reason why they make animes this way is to get people to buy the original game.

You're taking the translation of "The One Being Sung" too literally, and that's not even the right translation as the title of the last episode is referring to something else.

Yeah, but even the game ends with a quite bittersweet tone AND a huge question that's only half-answered. The answer is kinda obvious (with a few, anvil-heavy clues strewn here and there and of course, only one possible explanation to offer) but don't get to see either the confirmation or whatever happens next, which, IMO, should have been an interesting moment. It's like a cliffhanger, but in a way, it's almost as if the game producers said, 'okay, drop the curtain, it's not like you need to see whatever happens next and, anyway, it doesn't matter'.

And, btw, although, yeah, it'd make people curious about the game and go buy it, there's still adult material inside and several themes
Spoiler:
that makes it not suitable for all ages.

Where do I post fanfics?

Umm...Does anyone know where I post Utawarerumono fanfics here?

Also, I have an answer about the tail issue: it depends on the individual. Some men may choose to show it, while others chose not.

Here's another question: will Utawarerumono air on Adult Swim?

Hmm, I've tried reading this thread and the Ep 26 discussion thread but I still haven't found answers to a couple questions.

1) The title, Utawarerumono, where does it come from? There was no singing or songs of any significance in the anime.

2) Mutsumi/Kamiyu - Why is Mutsumi within Kamiyu? Why is Mutsumi still alive if she was already alive before the re-sealing of Iceman? What was Kamiyu's water drinking incident about? Is it simply a phase in the lives of the winged females or something (they might have actually explained this in the series but I just can't remember it)?

Wait, I thought the twins were girls. o_0;; If not, what they did to that one guy was rather...well, f'ed up.

But with all that aside, what puzzled me as a hugely unanswered question is, what exactly happened at the end? The girls were out with that female tiger (gawds, I loved that tiger! I wish I could have hugged that huge kitty. ^_^) and suddenly they see something coming out of the woods and Eruru sees something coming in behind her and suddenly gets uber happy as though that masked guy (sucks that I can't remember his name. Augh!) she was in love with had come to greet her. Anyone have a clue if that's what happened? Or is that just speculation? And is there any talk of a second season? The ending was definately satisfying, but I almost wished for a very happy ending for Eruru. Going around and then having the guy she loved yanked away sucked.

The title refers to Witsuarunemitea, the one who is sung of (in other words, the one who is revered). The Chinese translate the title as "The one being praised".

I figured I'd post here (have no idea where this would better fit), but does anyone have a clue where to find an audio patch for the PC game (as the PS2 version had audio)?

I don't think there is such thing that exists for the Utawarerumono PC game...yet. I know that Kanon has an audio patch to its game. But for Utawarerumono? ...Doubtful. I mean, good luck getting Ryoka Yuzuki to V.A. Eruruu in bed, much less the other five women. = o

But hey, who knows?
