The series is very intresting and the characters seem to be top notch... Very Good from me

My theory on the first scene...

Horny Guy (don't know his name yet)... is a demon... *thinks of the op*

  1. I haven't seen many anime with dragons
  2. The op is pretty spoilerish and I don't recall seeing a dragon...

Anyway I hope Hakuoro is a dragon like you say ... and that the angel is Erurru... anyway seeing the op Aruruu (shy sister) probably ends up kicking some major villain ass...

Heh.. thought I might get yelled at for an "8" but it appears I'm in the slot. Just a good solid episode, not a lifechanger but lots of nice detail.... if the animation were "AIR" quality with all those Ainu motif designs I might have just died.

I'd say bad...... but I kinda compare this to the rest of the series. Virutally no action took place, and I found it pretty boring. I like ther series alot, but they just took to much time to introduce all the chars.

(I'm refering to the 1st ep only)

I disagree completely. It was a nice introduction to the main characters. I thought it was pretty balanced, not too slow, but not rushed either. It seemed quite approprate for the setting. Not to mention the tail grab scene.

In the original thread, some people were guessing that the mask could be a seal of sorts that keep either his powers or his true identity contained. (hence the fact that he can't take it off)

Well.. shows that jump into "action" without defining the characters or explaining their environment or how they inter-relate to each other are just too shallow for me to waste time on .... so I think it was just right in terms of character definition and introduction (though Mr. Nuwangi punk ran away a bit quickly when told he couldn't bully/kidnap/havehisway with Eruruu).

I was consiering a 7, but I though I got hooked almost instantly. So an 8 would be better.

It's a nice start, with showing the main characters and their relationships with the people in the village, as well as the nature of the vilage as well. I agree that a fight from the start wouldn't be good, since you'll have only the looks of the opposing sides to base your judgment on whom you side with.

The OP definitely wins. Seeing the OP immediately bumps this onto #2 of my most anticipated series for this season.

Little thing that has been bothering me...

Is it just me or does the voice that tells Hakuoro that he's ok sounds different from Erurrus...

Well I personally find some of those shallow series very interesting... as long as they go all out with the fight and still have some minor introduction towards the end ... little cliffhanger would be nice... and going back in the timeline for the next ep usually makes it fun to watch...

Well dogs for example have an erogenous zone at the base of their tail, so they are very sensitive when pulled. It must work the same way for her "kind".

OK, as I said in the "licensing" thread, I just watch this, and gave it a 8...

So frustrating


Personnally, I loved the ED and the setting. The OP was a bit too plain for me.


Anyway, who cares, it's goddamn L I C E N S E D...


From now on, please call me "raph the wretched".


By the way, to end on a positive note, the last 4 posts here, before mine are really funny.

I don't think I'm wrong in saying that quite a few of us started watching UtaMono due to the tail-grabbing scene. At least, Catgirl's excellent TailGrabô .gif started me on this series. Lol, its interesting just to retrospect a little.
