Since it's still early in the series' production and everyone here seems to be of the opinion that it should not be called "Shadow Warrior Chronicles," why not brainstorm a better name and send a signed petition to ADV?

"Dear ADV, if you would be so kind.. please do not change the title of the anime 'Utawarerumono.'

Thank you for your time."

You guys are just a bit crazy... It'd be hard to mix up the titles, considering they were each announced at two seperate panels. They certainly haven't announced that they're changing the names of the characters, and of course it will air in widescreen - when does ADV ever change that? We've seen shock, denial, bargaining, anger, (light) depression... working on acceptance here... It's just a name.

... You know what I mean

Frankly, if I were in charge of the project, I wouldn't want to leave it as 'Utawarerumono.' For people who don't speak any (or only superficially speak) Japanese, it's awkward to say and hard to remember. I think a compromise of an English title that agrees with the original Japanese, is easy to remember, and doesn't falsely represent the story would be best for everyone.

The name chosen doesn't actually mean anything when it comes to Uta', but with how crazy the name is - we might as well have a lil' fun about it. ^^;

"It's just a name" doesn't cut it when there's symbolism in the name. Utawarerumono brings both an allusion to musical ideas and legends as well as the image of a revered one. If this naming is indeed official, then it doesn't bode well for the accuracy in ADV's research and translation regarding this series.

...Snickers panel probably located next to the ADV panel.
I don't get the Snickers references.

Maybe there was a guy playing an acoustic guitar and singing songs about the new series being licensed?

On the contrary, I would suggest that this name was chosen purely for marketing reasons (though we may consider it a lame choice), and makes no attempt to be a translation of the Japanese title whatsoever. With that in mind, I don't think we can draw any conclusions about the quality of their treatment of the show's contents itself.

Nooooo... Just heard about it being licensed 2day >_<.

This sucks bad, first they change the name, then another, much larger blow is dealt when they change the characters names (i think).

To top it off they're gonna DUB!!!! it!!!??? *@&#. I must be having a nightmare... (some1 wake me up..)

Someone plz tell me that this, and every other season is gonna have the same sieyuus? I REALLY hate english voice actors (for animes only), they just ain't cut out for animes imho, they should stick to disney cartoons ^^.

I guess i knew this was coming, with it being so popular....

(note - didn't read ALL earlier posts)

I'm sure the DVDs (like pretty much every other ADV release) will be released with both Japanese and English audio with optional subtitles. The character name change speculation was just made-up.

Whew.... ALL i hope for is that they don't change the character's names, the seiyuus, the plot etc. etc. etc.

Even the name change of the anime would be annoying since it took me a few days to remember the name >_< lol and besides, i don't see ANY relevance with the new name.
Sure, the old name was a mouthful but it was good .

Now i have to call it some crappy name that doesn't even mean anything. (the new name causes great degradation on the anime imo).

I was hoping ADV would give the series its 4chan name, Underwater Ray Romano. I'd buy the absolute worse magical girl series ever produced if it was called Underwater Ray Romano. And I'm not even a fan of Ray Romano. I just like the underwater reference.

Someone said ADV should have called it Utawa Ray Ramano, or something to that effect. I remember that I lol'd when I imagined Ray voicing Hakuoro

'Shadow Warrior Chronicles' hahahaha... That sounds like the name of an 11 year old CS player or something... If any of you people are set to just 'deal with it,' stop kidding yourselves, that name is not only extremely cheesy, but also one of the worst I've ever heard.

You got that right, sounds alot like some fps game name/nick.

Does any actually have an idea as to the origins of the "new" name? (maybe some cs player who happens to work there??? lol)
