It could be just a random demi-human. On another note, you think Hakuoro and Mikoto got married or something?

That's why we said we don't know. It might be centuries or millennia. There are no indications of how much time passed between the new species' liberation and Hakuoro's appearance. It must at the very least be a few centuries if not one millennia so that those races could have created civilizations, traditions, legends, medieval sciences, etc, etc.

There are programs you can run in synch with the game like Anime Games Text Hooker and ATLAS clipboard translator. Unfortunately, this method is so malevolently crude and imprecise that you'll barely understand what's being translated.

HOWEVER, if you can get Anime Games Text Hooker to work, just put whatever kanji and phrases you don't know into online japanese dictionaries and translate it little by little. It helps to an extent - Genjimaru uses big phases, for example, so you may not get the same meaning translating one part of the whole. So the key is knowing where the phrases are, which means knowing some Japanese...

But in any case, just because you can't read it doesn't mean you shouldn't play it! It's really good; makes other hentai games seem archaic to me (but Utawarerumono was my first so what do I know? -_- ).

The flashback arc is indeed the series' stepping stone as it should reveal a LOT of things behind Hakuoro's nature and HOW the heck did he end up being as such - specifically with a true human being's physiognomy, the mask, etc...
But yeah, it looks like they ran out of screentime and decided to drop most fbs with perhaps the belief that sneak peeks here and there will suffice or that game FAQs would provide answers to the unsatisfied fans.

...Technically, yeah, it's another one of those 'monsters-stall-Hakuoro's-party's-approach-while-the-main-villain-keeps-doing-his-evil-deeds' moment as seen when Hakuoro went to confront Dii and Kuuya.

But the red blobs' presence was not due to the scriptwriters getting high with weed; whatever they were (hmmm...I believe I was talking about them a bit earlier...*hint*hint*nudge*nudge*) is part of the story and flashback arc. So, no, they didn't come here for nothing...that is, as long as they'll show what or who they truly are in ep26.

To each his/her own. There are several distinct character personalities/physiques in Utawarerumono to get perverse thoughts on. = P

Speaking of monsters-stall-Hakuoro's-party's-approach-while-the-main-villain-keeps-doing-his-evil-deeds, hopefully Dii says something about his creations (or we see/hear something involving the undead creations of his) in episode 26. If they do explain it, I might be better lenient on judging the previous episodes where we had seen them but it's still an annoyance to save so many answers to important questions for the series finale.

As for a manga, there is one volume of it serialized on a [SHOUJO?!?!] magazine. Of course my source is Wikipedia so take that as you will.

Regarding a manga version of the series, all I've seen are a few pages of the content witnessed in episode 1. It could be this [SHOUJO?!?!] magazine that Cardiac Glycoside is referring to. I've seen a lot of doujins - none of them directly tied to the canon events of Utawarerumono.

As it stands, he's going 1 on 1 as a kind of penance. This can still change, however, if we Hakuoro confesses his feelings to someone in episode 26 or whatever thing that involves hearing how he feels towards any of the female cast. But it would have to be an effective confession...

Besides, you'll probably get 30-50% of the content on visualizations alone.

I think it's perfectly natural for people who have followed both anime and game of Utawarerumono to make comparisons. But I also emphasize that you don't have to play the game first to watch this show. The modified story in itself is already worth applauding. It's just difficult to not let what you already know influence your judgement.

He should definite stay as the Emperor. I don't care about the cash but the leaving the exotic young ladies is somehow weird. As Cardiac mentioned, it is his own fault.

Not "shoujo" but "bishoujo". It's serialized in Dengeki G's Magazine, and I'd say the flavour, for the most part, is sort of "fun side-stories featuring the Utawarerumono characters". It doesn't attempt to re-tell the game's story or anything like that. Consider it a serialized omake. 12 chapters in the magazine so far, with one collected volume released in late July.

"Cash" in this case is a metaphor. Think about it.

EDIT: Furthermore, if you found out (more like, remembered) that you are a god and that everyone except the bunny people worship you, you've gotta be pretty damn lame if your only reaction is to go fuc--I mean, fight yourself. Maybe Hakuoro should just give a friendly sign of approval to Dii (like in that one picture floating around in danbooru) and just wallow in the praise of all his faithful.

But as it turns out, it's not "The one being sung," it's "The one with the sex drive of a corpse."

Hakuoro only loved one women and her alone: Mikoto

Everyone else he refers to as friends or family. As you probably noticed.

Game Hakuoro begs to differ. Friends with benefits. Or so I've heard.

Dii is cooler than Hakuoro. Can't be a proper bishounen with a mask like Hakuoro's.

His own fault. He could just call it plausible deniability and continue banging his great^n granddaughter and other females.

Besides, what man is THAT faithful to their main squeeze?
