Must of been some fever.
As far as we can tell our guesses are properbly as good as the creators, they properbly dont know their age, untill they put something down that is. We dont even know the place they live is earth or not. So god knows how long a year is there.

Well its too early in the show so far I guess we will later find out.

Wow, I say this is my new favorite anime. Well, one of many, I've checked out so many lately with this new season and all.

Anywho, I'm really liking this series so far. I hope it one day becomes liscensed and released over here, that'd be good.

Also, is the game Japan only?

yeah, the game (which is kind of an RPG with visual novel characteristics - for PC) is in japanese only. There's a PS2 version in the works but also only in japanese.

The game can be ordered through exporters but I'm currently trying to find an exporter that doesn't charge a premium price for it (I'm a bit suspicious of Himeyashop's prices these days).

Bah... every place I tried I ran into that damned "software games are strategic resources and can't be shipped out of the country" bullshit (especially annoying with amazon.co.jp where it was listed at 36% off MSRP). Completely idiotic...

My normal source www.nippon-export.com is overwhelmed with requests at the moment (I should be happy they're so popular) so I ended up ordering it from Himeyashop.

This is actually no different than it is in the US. Export laws controlling computer software and hardware are actually quite strict, and I don't believe they make any kind of distinction between kinds of software. In the US it requires a special license to export, and I doubt it's an different in Japan.

I just watched the first 2 eps and really enjoyed them. I've read the posts from the last couple of days and I'd like to share my thoughts. I'll spoiler them just in case.

From the trailer of the series, it looks like there are a lot of interesting characters that will be in this series.

And Eruruu and Aruruu are too cute. I really like their cute lil' ears and tails.


I thought it was also really cute when

Looks like Static-Subs is also going to sub this show. Feel kinda tempted to check their version.

It's practically the same for those small minority group over here in Japan who wishes to play games such as EA Sport's NFL games - they go through a lot of things and US export restrictions to get the game over here. Fortunately, people who wants to play American PS2 games in Japan are a very small majority, so no one really cares. On the other hand, a large portion of people outside of Japan seems to drool over at the games we have here, so you guys have to get stuck with the legal mumbo-jumbos concerning export laws.

So while you have to pay close to retail price for something that I assume the company bought at the clearance sale bin for less than 2000 yen, I can pick those old ero-games if I wanted to at used game shops for 5-for-5000 sales. Added plus, I don't get stuck with extra more in shipping fees either.

It must be the mask ... it confuses our minds and makes us mogrify his name.

aye... fortunately, I don't often buy software from thataway --- the CDs, manga, and other stuff are priced much more "in line with my expectations" (plus I can block it up and reduce cost of shipping more easily).

Oh, so that's what that yellow substance was during the opening that showed her eating something. I already guessed it was probably honey or something but never went to comfirm it. I can imaging all the cute and adorable things that'll happen when that episode airs.

Man oh man, I can't wait for the opening song to be released. I really like it alot!

I actually posted a very nice wallpaper some pages ago. But here are some more:




I even have one from someone that looks like Aruruu & Eruruu's mother. Not sure if it's real or not and not sure if I can post it here.

EDIT: Oh, just found another pair:

I'm surprised there's not a single mention of Mononoke Hime in this thread. As this was the first thing that came to mind when I watched the first ep. Even Mutikapa seems to be based on Nago (i.e. crazed local demon/diety ravaging the village).

For me,Mononoke is much more sexier and stylish.What I think is that both are referenced by the folklore tales.But Utawarerumono is alittle bit lighter version,but still early to think in that way.

edit:
Another one thing, Mononoke used to wears short-trousers and Ereru and her sister used to wear full dress[thumbs down >_>].

Utawarerumono is getting better episode by episode, third episode was very good, and introduced several new characters. I like the pace of the series.
Spoiler for ep. 3:

That's interesting, not many people think of Mononoke Hime as being sexy. Personally I think it's Miyazaki's sexiest film and San his hottest leading lady.

Anyway, on topic, as other's have mentioned I thought the tail grab scene was one of the cutest and funniest things I've seen in a while.

The 'lighting' is especially good in this show. That's something you don't always see done effectively in anime. The interior scenes, especially the night time ones (with those glowing stones), are very atmospheric. It has quite a lot in common with Aria in that sense.

I have to say, I was a little discouraged to learn the anime is based on a dreaded 'H' game. But I don't think we'll be seeing any of that in this show, thankfully...
