Hm, I think ADV will release the box with the Volume 2 of the DVD.

http://www.animeondvd.com/reviews2/d...views/6061.php

I heard that some company was considering releasing boxes with second volumes instead of the first, so that people wouldn't have to spend so much on something they might end up not liking. But I couldn't remember what company that was. I guess it was ADV?

Yes, ADV is starting to put boxes onto 2nd volume releases recently. It practically makes sense if you think about it.

Yes, ADV Films are also releasing Vol 2 + Box for series such as Paniponi Dash and Nerima Daikon Brothers. And the AoD review also makes it clear this will happen with Utawarerumono as well. It's a good idea, gives you a chance to see if you like the series enough to purchase a box when Vol 2 is released.

Utawarerumono Vol. #2, release date 20th March 2007, 125 minutes (5 eps)

ADV's Utawarerumono site is up and running.

LOL And right on the front page is a "proper" pronunciation of the title.

"OO-TAH-WAH-RAY(meh...)-ROO-MOE-NO"

http://www.advfilms.com/titles/utawarerumono/index.html

^Hm, what was up with that other link on their site last time? Oh well...

Oh, and look in their Extras section for three wallpapers. One's a Dori and Gura image...Oh, and on the Character Profiles section, they spelled Eruruu's name as "Eruru." This either means they changed it back or whoever coded the site was unaware of the name-change. Probably a typo since it's spelled "Eluluu" in the Story section.

I didn't mind "Eluluu's" voice that much (I was originally worried she would sound too much like Osaka--same VA anyway) but Hakuoro sounded LAME. If they wanted him to sound like a washed-up failed Batman so much, they should have hired Adam West.

Episode 04 appeared on Newtype's free DVD in January issue - seriously, why episode 04? Talk about your spoilers. Anyway, i thought i'd check out the dub for a laugh.. and - i hate dubs anyway, though this just sucks. Pronouncing the names fails hard..

As for the subs - Eluluu?

And.. this episode makes me cry.. so much. ;_;

First DVD volume is out now. ...I got mine for around twenty dollars at the local Best Buy. Morning opening hour. Huge figgin line. Wasn't sure at first what that was all about. I mean, no way this line could be for the Utawarerumono release. But, I had to be sure, had to, plan the route. Follow through entry, a right at the computer hardware, straight down to the HD area, a left till enter the DVD media area, Aruruu DIVE!

Nobody around. Or, maybe they just couldn't find it yet. Or the Oboro barrier. But I got it! Only less than a hand full of copies there, but I got it. And, if you have perhaps ever wondered why the cover design is this big mask surrounded by what looks like my front yard,.. it's because of days just like this. Nothing small. Just something big that stands out, saying, "Here I am!". Plus, if handled at the correct angle, you can use the cover's bling to blind just about anyone nearby.

Of course at checkout, everyone there had their own green box, and the line from before made sense after that. World of Warcraft was put on the same release date. And then, it instantly dawned on me, ...that everything told in South Park is friggin true.

Oh wow, this is actually probably one of the best dubs I've heard. I especially enjoy how fitting Teoro and Hakuoro's voices are. Tsukuru is AMAZING, pity her voice won't be featured much. >: Eruruu (Or well, Eluluu) sounds really good most of the time, sometimes it's a little forced-sounding but for the most part it's a great job. And HAHAH, the tail pull scene was done very well, actually. ^_^ The only thing I'm dissapointed in is Aruruu's voice - it fits her character, but I was so attached to the almost-monotone, curt voice of Japanese Aruruu. Nuwangi is pretty well-voiced, not quite as great as the Japanese Nuwangi, but suitably arrogant in his tone.

I'm just so happy my favourite series hasn't been butchered. <3 I'll definitely be buying this. ;0

This shows that you haven't seen the cover art for the first volume - or how they've spelt ELULUU!

The cover art is laughable!

As for the name, could it be that the Japanese people wanted them to that?

Well, possibly... it's hard to say. I personally think it may have been to add a bit more distinction between the names, and seeing as the Japanese sound is half-L half-R to begin with, it doesn't really both me, I guess... but oh well.

It is possible the name is supposed to be Elulu. The Japanese language, if you look at katakana, doesn't have any "L" sounds. They accomadated "V" sounds with one of the katakana syllables, but "L" sounds are just used with Ra, Ri, Ru, Re, or Ro.

Especially with Eruruu's voice, it seems less an issue of whether or not the voice fits and more that it sounds like she's reading from a script, the way the sentences are pronounced just don't sound like fluent english =/.

For that same reason, I'd have to say Tusukuru's voice was my favorite, followed by either Teoro, Nuwangi or Sopoku.

Edit: I just noticed something, they change Eruruu to Eluluu but it seems as if Aruruu's name kept the r's...

No no, I've noticed. But these things seem like very small faults on an otherwise decent dub. ;0

Haha, Dori and Gura's voices are correct. Still questionable genders. Well, anyone new to the series will start questioning after that certain episode. Unless they think "Female voice actors = female characters."

And what fools they would be to think that. x3;

I think their voices are done well, and that they are also like that of other young male characters found in other animes that have also been voiced by women.

I've thought about it for a while. Since Eluluu is technically "correct" I think the reason they chose to use L's instead of R's for one sister but not the other is to minimize confusion. I mean, I'm sure some of you have referred to the wrong sister before am I right?

Does it matter? It's spelled in Katakana anyway, isn't it? So it's up to interpretation, as long as it isn't something completely different.

Yeah, that's how I took it, too. English/American kids are dumb. <3
