The animales thay seem to be base upon which are so far I can tell,

Human (Main character)
Dogs, (maybe Foxes, canine based anyway)
Rabbits, (Or Hare)
Big Feline, (Tiger)
Birds, (one with wings)

Might be more but we haven't seen any shadow warriors yet.

I thought this thread was supposed to be free of game spoilers? <_<
Anyway, the thought of using machine translation with Utawarerumono is really funny, almost as funny as using it with Fate/stay night.

Is there a connection between Karura and Urutorii, or are they just past friends? (Seeing as they drunk sake together with no words in a past episode)

They're humanoids or possibly trans-humans with a bit of gene swapping. Mostly they're cute. We lose a lot of expressive ability without directable ears or tail.

I think there was some mention that they are past friends. Yuri, no.



@Furudanuki: Great and logical conclusion below, and thanks for that yummy sometime back.

Urutorii is a princess from a race of people who serve as diplomats and mediators for the other empires, plus she has been trained as an ambassador and negotiator herself. Given what we learn about Karura in episode 18 - and with more no doubt to be revealed in episode 19 - it is reasonable to assume that Urutorii recognized Karura and knew who she really was.

Is that some kind of reference to the brand new shitty title American right owners have come with?

I don't know how the game works, but I remember reading someone referring to strength of individual units. I would assume that that would mean Benawi, Karura, Touka, Oboro, etc all have their own strength ranking? Does anyone have this information? (I'm just curious, so it isn't particularly important).

Also, if the above is possible, how powerful was Oyaji?

edit: Oh yeah, I was wondering something else. Is there any information on the original Hakuoro, Erruru and Arruru's father? If it is a spoiler or something, just telling me it's a spoiler is fine.

Will the anime have an happy ending? Or atleast, did the game have an happy ending? (I hate sad endings -_-)

And could anyone give me a list of all the people who die? (Atleast the major ones, don't care about random villagers :P)

And the final question: What happens to hakuoro in the end? Does he die? Does he leave?

I know not all questions can be answered for the anime, but i take it the game and anime share a rather similar plotline?

Thanks in advance

My earlier guess was that Hakuoro would go batshit insane and kill millions of people and Eruruu would tearfully put him down due to some special power she has that can make her kill Hakuoro. Kinda like the ending to Old Yeller, plus the millions of deaths and special powers.

I guess I was way off....

Ahem.

What I wrote was the epilogue. The aftermath.

I said nothing about the final showdown. ^_^

So Eruruu does put him down Old Yeller-like?

I wonder if the people of the UW universe mimic some habits that their "base creatures" have. I hope not, lest we have this scenario:

Hmm is it confirmed it's a 26 eps serie ?
I really can't see how they can end it in 4 eps now....

Yup, fully confirmed as a 26-episode show.

I really can't see it ending in 4 episodes either, but I'm pretty sure it ends in 26.

To Cardiac Glycoside: in the game you had to fight something...really big. But I don't see that happening here simply due to time constraints and answering questions about the series (if any). I remember Slayers TRY (1997) where the climatic battle at the end had a buildup of maybe 5-7 episodes prior. But there's only 4 episodes left and one of the two remaining story arcs isn't finished yet.

Spoiler for my guess on remaining episode content:


I'm pretty confident that one of the following will occur at the end:
- The Utawarerumono producers will completely botch the ending from how the game portrayed it
- The entire epilogue that Renegade334 posted in the previous set of posts will be disregarded (it's technically NOT the ending)
- The ending will be so rushed that it will lack any emotional/dramatic comprehension.

I dunno, they'll have to try REALLY hard in 4 episodes to impress me. :|
