Man, that roving "merchant" sure has a higher pitched voice than what I was expecting, yes. I think the battle scenes in this episode were pretty well done, as it showed that war isn't just some one sided happy-go-lucky event. And it's also nicely shown that

Oh that,


Spoiler for From the Game:



And Hakuoro isn't leader because he can fight well but because he can use his head and has the charisma to bring people together.

The #1 quality to any great leader is always charisma.

Hakuoro did fight against one of the most skilled warrior in the domain with inferior weapon (halberd against a fan...) while on horseback, or whatever they call that thing.

Being a leader does not mean you're the strongest in arms. Heck, even though he might have lost a one-on-one duel, he still won the battle with his tactics, so he's still a winner.

In fact, his choice of weapon (the fan) reminds me strongly of Zhuge Liang from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. The fan defines Hakuoro's character as a leader and strategist rather than a front-line warrior.

I don't agree here. The fan was still Hakuoro's weapon of choice. It's not considered inferior if you're skilled with a weapon of your choosing.

Again, I don't pity Benawi his position right now. It's a typical case of a competent commander under an incompetent ruler. Poor guy. Wonder how he can take so much abuse and misunderstanding.

Hakuoro was still at a disadvantage because Benawi was mounted, but anyway Hakuoro isn't at his full potential yet. Even Benawi speculated this.

I wonder if he has ever heard the old saying:

Good soldiers follow orders......

Great soldiers know when to ignore them.


I think Benawi is seriously thinking in becoming a part of the 'Great' group.

His man will probably spring him form prison and his group will chase and then get rescue by hakurou.

Weapon of choice doesn't really change the physics of things. Benawi was using weapon with greater power with longer reach while mounted. That means he had advantages in just about every field. He had better height to strike from while having greater range. The best weapon to use against a mounted fighter is either with bows and arrows or with a long spear; take them down outside of their weapon's range. Hakuoro's weapon isn't really much of a weapon at all, and could really be used for defense against the kind of weapon Benawi was using.

Eruruu is stuck smack in the middle of "the needs of the many outweighing the needs of the few or the one" ... though she hasn't explicitly said so, it seems pretty obvious she wanted to continue a quiet life at the side of Hakuoro doing quiet village things. The more this vortex of rebellion stirs up, the less she sees of Hakuoro - who is essentially neglecting her and Aruruu (who have just lost their grandma and mentor) in favor of the greater needs of the people.
Eruruu is caught being distraught at not having Hakuoro to herself and pissed at him for making decisions that keep leaving her alone. .... course, she also hasn't spoken up about her true feelings, leaving Hakuoro the typically oblivious guy. always a two way street of opportunities missed...


Its a tragic situation and gets played out over and over in history and on a daily basis in the real world now.

As much as i like utamarerumono, I feel that fat incompentant rulers are too cliche in anime. Would anyone else like to have seen a CaoCao type villian instead.

My main problem with the baddies is that they look like old washed up disco-maniacs from the 70s who bought into the Pastry Diet. They're so out of step with the other character designs its hard to take them seriously --- tongue-slobbering over Oboro like he was Jabba the Hut eyeing Princess Leia, heh.
