Seriously.... it makes sense to me that "songs" and chants tend to be made about individuals a people admire so I can see how linguistically the term could overlap. Languages are full of idiomatic expressions that don't really mean what their "literal" translation might imply or be subtly different.
Like what they did with one of those hand held English - Russian translating devices. They translated the old saying "Out of sight, Out of mind" to Russian and back to English. What they got back was "Invisible, Insane." A literal translation that is very different from the actual meaning.

Game-wise: they're males.

Anime-wise: we'll have to wait and see until the early teen episodes for that conversation, I think.

How old do you think everyone is? Since it Utaware was adapted from an h-game, we should assume the girls you get to screw around with are over 18 right? D:

How old would you say Aruruu is? >_>; My friend's accusing me of being a pedophile even though he's the one that's over 18 lol

My guess is around 14-12 even though she sounds a bit younger >_> But that's probably cos she's shy, right? ;o

Actually, Japan's age of consent is 14, iirc. And there are plenty of h-games with the protagonists screwing much younger girls, so there's nothing really legal to say that everyone is 18+.

I think Aruruu is about 10 or 11.

The rest, no clue really. Eruruu might be 18-ish. Yuzuha seems older than her. Kamyu, probably a little younger than Eruruu. The rest, Urutorii, Karura, and Touka all seem over 20.

You have to think of this in medieval terms .... the village probably considers Eruruu damn near an old maid -- about all they didn't do in ep 1 and 2 is push Eruruu on top of Hakuoro. A girl of 14-18 was usually married off pronto prior to the industrial age.

Japan's age of consent is as young as 14 *socially* but it kind of depends on where you're standing, who you are, and who's complaining. They passed a national law raising it a couple of years ago so the politicians could say they'd "done something to save the children" (mostly due to international prude pressure) but it appears to be mostly ignored by the Japanese themselves.

And now you know (of course you should also be aware the police may take an unfriendly eye to an over-18 male gaijin accosting highschoolers for a date so don't book your plane ticket just yet).

Finally, we also have no clue what the average lifespan is of these people in Utawarerumono. Nor do we know their cultural standards for "of age" though I'm assuming pre-industrial "ready to breed" is probably the answer.

Now as far as 21st Century odd little rules of the US, Japan, or other locales..... they just slap the "assume anyone you can bonk is over 18... we say so." labels on it to chase off the Nosy Neurotics.

Heh, no, in ero-games everything goes, although they always seem to keep someone's age in the dark when they seem really young. And the age of consent in Japan is officially 13, but can range from 13 to 17 depending on prefecture (it's 17 in Tokyo). This doesn't mean it's illegal to show children under the age of 13 performing sexual acts in ero-games and the like though.

Spoiler for game:

Like Shinova I'd also guess she's about 10-11 years old, judging from the way she behaves. And there's nothing wrong with loving Aruruu, we all do.

They just didn't think the later was all that popular with the ladies.
