All Good things must end

Its all over and for once i dont feel bitter about an ending. I loved Utawarermono from the first episode all the way to end. IMO no charcter will ever be as cute as Aruruu she is definetly my number 1 choice for cutest little kid in an anime

Spoiler for MY thoughts for final Episode:

Yes Aruru is best little kid if any anime. I never find her annoying even when she cries or whines.

It'd be great if an OVA is on production on Hakuoro's past and a mini sequel on Touka/Karura. LOL XD

Well, I loved this show, but there are some things I don't understand. Why does Hakuoro never think about his life as a human scientist? From what I've gathered, that would probably be his longest 'life,' and even though he fell in love with Mikoto, making his second life perhaps more memorable, it seems like his human life isn't even of relative importance to him. I don't know, if I lived as a normal human being in our society and then suddenly woke up thousands of years later... uh... the past would be pretty important to me.

They also don't say how mankind fell and the artificial beings took over. Did Hakuoro destroy every human? What time period was 'iceman' Hakuoro from? Many questions, no answers. I suppose some people would consider the information to be irrelevant and taking away the mystery would defile the charm of the world Hakuoro is from, but either way I want to know. The Utawarerumono world is fascinating and I wish they would go into it more. Oh well.

I also wish the damn game got translated, cuz from the gamers it seems so much more was explained, though it never will be translated -_-.

I was really looking forwards to the end. It felt rushed, I mean, I watch, it ends, and it's like 'Huh, over already?'. I guess it can't be helped for a 26 episode long series, but it's good.

It might take a long long time for the game to get translated though, but I wouldn't say it would never happen.

I agree with those sentiments with the loose ends from that whole flashback episode. (Right now though my staying-up high has just left me after my mad blitz through the entire series +school in <24hr so my mind is not coherent enough to delve deeply into it. Ima gonna drop dead.)

I just thought of something.

Yuzuha didn't die! Kamyu must have been playing around with magic and just turned her into a rock.

Well, that was a nice episode, and I loved this anime. One of the best shows I've seen lately. I was a bit disappointed by the end... only a bit, though:

Spoiler:



I think I prefer totally pleasing endings in anime (like Scrapped Princess), but Utawarerumono's ending was stil very nice, and I liked it.

Aruru is... hardcore... for some reason that's what I think of when I look back at her. Time and time again she disobays Hakuoro's order and puts herself in utter peril to save her him, and rides with his army on pivotal battles. I remember when she seeks out the location of the bridge that Kucca Kecha expeditionary forces use as well as shielding Hakuouro from Mutsumi to protect him. It's kind of funny how that the end of the series would make you wonder if Mutsumi should start calling Aruru as her little sister now that the whole story's out.

Frankly, there's actually more than enough to go on for sequal (although it won't happen). Aruru has alot of potential to take after Hakuoro's footsteps...

hint: amnesia.

He lost memory when he was awakened as Iceman.
He lost memory again when he was saved by Eruru.
He didn't regain these memories back until the last episode.

Now, there's a bit more story in the game that wasn't shown in the anime.

Wow, thanks for all the info.

The end of Utawarerumono is one of the best, if not the best anime ending iv'e seen. I got really emotional when Aruruu started crying, and it just continued to the end of the ep. The kiss between Hakuoro and Eruruu is one of the best scenes ever, though it probably has alot to do with the music. Im playing Suara - Kimi ga Tame over and over again on my comp.

I was totally thinking that when they kissed and Hakuoro made the ref to Mikoto but what you said makes it sound better.

A Karura/Touka OVA would be awesome! I love when Touka said she's still immatrue.

Man the ending was depressing and but it was very good. I didnt expect Yuzuha to die but I get why it was done.
Just one ques when Eruruu's turns around at the end, who is she seeing? Im assuming its Hakuoro so can we have an OVA on that please!

Yeah, we were meant to assume it's Hakuoro in person. The game clearly slaps it in front of your face but in the anime it's totally inconclusive. Notice the wind blowing in the last three scenes - Kuuya/Sakuya, Kamyu/Aruruu, and Eruruu. They all get very familiar sensations as it blows by. It could be him. Then again, it could be a wiff of really tasty pound cake. -.-

Just assume it's him. Let Eruruu smile in peace. = D



And yep, it does sound better doesn't it? = o

If this doesn't make any sense to you, I'll try reexplaining it in simpler terms.
