You must cease and desist referring to this anime as Utawarerumono, it is now

SHADOW WARRIOR CHRONICLES

"The one who is sung" (or however you'd translate it) is odd as a title. I assume the "shadow" part is supposed to refer to the mask that hides Hakuoro's true face, and "Warrior Chronicles" is pretty self-explanitory. It may not be super-creative, but it's a title. And it doesn't affect anything about the show itself. Much ado over nothing, IMO...

First thought: It's licensed, that was a bit unexpected this soon.

Second thought: If you're going to rename it, at least give the series a decent title. I mean UFO Ultramaiden was bad enough, but Shadow Warrior Chronicals? Well, not that Utawarerumono was the best title ever, but still... ADV, put some effort in to it... People look at the title first. A lame one like that won't capture any attention and hurt sales.

I have to join in saying that this is a horrible name. I admit that I don't have anything better, but "Shadow Warrior Chronicles" makes me laugh every time I say it.
This brings up the question of how they are going to cast the twins...

Well, it could be worse I suppose... really, I don't think it'll harm its sales in any area other than fansub watchers, and calling it by its original name to satisfy us would drive away most of the casual market (the original name because it's too complicated and Japanese, the translation because "lol is this a singing anime?". I don't like it much myself, but I haven't got anything better either.

As for the original name, the most natural translation seems to be "The one you sing of" which is a really fitting title when you find out why it's called that. Unfortunately, that's not right until the end (don't search for it, it's a gigantic spoiler that I regret finding out myself) and you have to wait around that long thinking it's kinda weird before you know.

So, any bets on what they're going to change the name of the 'evil god' to? I can't even spell his name, much less pronounce it.

What would they have to change about the twins?

I agree that "The One You Sing Of" would be a much better title. Shadow Warrior Chronicles sounds.. so.. cheesy. If anything, it'd drive viewers away. xD

And I think they're going to have a lot of trouble with the names of places and things.. I want to see how they deal with that.

First, liscensed noooooooo. It'll be harder to break the law n - *cough*

I actually am really happy that Utawa got picked up so fast, I was expecting it to get liscensed right quick since it's just so good. Still though... "Shadow Warrior Chronicles?" I sort of see where they're getting that from (lol evil godzilla mode etc.) but it doesn't fit the tone of the overall show at all. I would have stuck with "The One Being Sung About"/"The One We Sing Of" because it IS eye catching. At least stick with the song theme, maybe "The Song of Legends" or something.

On the plus side, ADV dubbing and subbing is usually on par or better, so title choices aside we know the show's in pretty good hands.

I'am very disappointed in the pure laziness of the renaming of the title.

I bet alot of mainstream anime fans who are not into the fansub scene, who buy this anime will be very surprised when they discover their are no "shadow warriors" and it isn't much of a chronicle either,but about inu mimi and a man with a mask.

But to be honest, ADV is following a long tradition of anime publishing tactics, as all european anime fans remember the fun they had picking up Manga Entertainment VHS anime videos at the store where all the anime story descriptions on the back had nothing to do with the anime at all.

Nothing like taking a chance with your money to buy an anime you have no idea what it's about besides the title and the picture on the box.

Which can be a hit or miss, in those days, I can't remember how many times i've returned a VHS, after watching it all and almost committed sucide as it was nothing like the outside box.

I rather play Russian Roulette, at leased you only die once...

Actually, Manga Entertainment was just following on the heels of... yes... Warriors of the Wind.

Well if they dub the twins as males, it'll be awkward from the get-go. If they dub them as females, it'll be awkward later (especially if the series eventually does outright say that the twins are male).

Don't think that'll be too much of a problem, they'll probably just go for a female voice and make it sound, well, not as girly. They don't come across too manly anyway, and at least then you'd get a 'young boys' vibe from them. Would keep some kind of ambiguity there too because if they're neither extreme it could go either way.

May as well use the topic made for this now anyway
