I still think "The One Being Sung" sounds more...uhh..."out there" if u know wut I mean. Since many people already have the fansubs...I think it's going to take a lot of convincing to say that "Shadow Warrior Chronicles" will be the new name. -_-

I hardly know you people. I'm just a stranger you guys found in the woods. Stop saying I'm a part of your family already. And I don't like your cat. He eats too much supplies and stinks and his fur gets all over the place. Geez, how'd we end up with that thing, anyway. We shoulda just got a dog; it is dog that is man's best friend, not 700 lb white tigers who eat too much."

Dude, that had better be right about a mix-up. "Blade of the Pahntom Mask" or whatever is still a sucky name, but at least it would be better than "Shadow Warrior Chronicles."

And the name has a lot to do with stuff. If the name is crappy, people think "oh, the show must be crappy." It's a shallow way of thinking, but it's unfortunately true. Thankfully not for everyone, though.

I still think that the US anime companies should ask the Japanese production companies what they want their anime to be named in English if the name is ever changed. The US companies may be doing the Stateside release, but the Japanese companies are the ones who made the show and did all the real hard work.

I suspect they used something like this.

Seriously though, they need to put more effort intothese things. Like I said in the Utawarerumono general discussion thread earlier, the title is the first thing people look at. Giving a series a lame title means many potential buyers will just overlook it on the shelf. In most people's minds, cliched, mundane title = cliched mundane anime. They need to give it a title that will at least get people to pick up the dvd in a store and read the back.

Oh yeah, that must've been the place they got the name from. Aren't they smart to use a online web name generator, dang why didn't i think of that.

And yeah, it's true that people would just judge the book by its cover. Infact, since they're quite alot of animes out there, i do it myself (If i came by this new name i would just dismiss it as some ordinary action anime to say the least).

Utawarerumono, even to someone who has no clue as the the meaning would still be enticing, if not to curiosity then to uniqueness.

eh... as long as they put out a quality video and well mastered japanese soundtrack I could care less about the english dub ... besides I figure they'll rename them Mr.Mask, Eruffruff and Scruffy; and their adventures with Ovaltine, Kitty, and english track listeners will get to hear the usual line-reading blandness everyone seems resigned to.

I should admit ADV is kind of on my "special friends" list because of their manga antics. I'm happy they did AzuDa (though the VA work isn't terrible, the dialog is iffy).

Yeah, when it gets down to it, as long as the voicing is at least decent and the translation isn't COMPLETELY lost, I'm okay with the name "Shadow Warrior Chronicles." Still, the name would get a lot of viewers expecting something they might not see.. it gives me the ninja or samurai vibe, but who knows?

Maybe it gives non-anime people that special feeling that they need to watch and read it the word "Shadow" and "Chronicles" I get active when I hear rare word "fraggle fraggle" for example


Well the in Utawarerumono, and "The One Being Sung," there is a similarity that I can find, since "mono" means one... but I dunno any in the licensed title -_-

So Utawarerumono is licensed. Now is the beginning of our greatest fears and anxieties. Yes, there will be silly dubs. Yes, there will be silly n00bs ruining the spirit of the series. Yes, there will be transliterations that we will not be familiar with (Crow? Ultrie? Tuskur? Call your offices, please).

That is all a given. What bothers me the most is--

CONVENTIONS.

That's right, CONVENTIONS.

Utawarerumono is too good of an anime NOT to build up a following in the States. That eventually means we will have Utawarerumono fans and Utawarerumono cosplayers like--

FAT ERURUU.
FAT HAKUORO.
FAT ARURUU.
FAT BENAWI.
FAT (SCANTILY CLAD) KARURA.
FAT (HEALTHY AND BRIGHT EYED) YUZUHA.

And the list goes on.

As for fansubbing, if ANYONE has the cojones to continue fansubbing, I will pick up upon it. Even Your Mom. If they do so, I will laugh. So. Very. Hard. At. Yesy's. Face.

Oh my god...Now that you mention it...Cosplayers...If I -ever- in my life time see an image that horrible, I will claw out my eyeballs, and eat them.


Anyways...I'll just watch RAWs if I cant find any fansubs...But I cannot help but wish death upon ADV for some uncontrollable reason...

Why don't they just call Utawarerumono "The Harem" and just leave it at that? Besides, I see zip logic for naming the anime Shadow Warrior Chronicles... Did they drink enough "I Am Ninja Hear Me Roar?" or did they just hire a bad translator?

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)
God, people, don't be so sodding retarded. I can tell you now, there will not be any changes to the character names. I've never seen ADV do this, and no respectable licensing company has done such things for years. Christ. I can't believe people still have such naive and narrow-minded viewpoints of local releases when the majority of licensing companies have been trying their best to do the right thing for so many years.

As far as the name change is concerned, this wouldn't be the first time ANN has misreported news, so I think it's best just to wait and see what ADV's final word is on the matter. "Blade of the Phantom Mask" isn't a great name, but it's a hell of an improvement on "Shadow Warrior Chronicles".

Yeah, true. But it was quite a shock when i found out after checking animesuki for new eps, and after quickly reading the first dozen or so posts i came to that conclusion.
Plus, i only got into anime about a year ago and as long as that may seem, this is the second anime i've ever followed (as in, it was still being subbed while i was watching it), and is also the first licensed anime too.

That name "Blade of the Phantom Mask" makes me think they're referring about Hakuoro's fan (weapon on choice as i call it) lol. But i know it's something to do with his special powers etc.

Wow.. I come back after 3 days to find UtaMono licensed. My initial feelings: no small measure of suprise (ESPECIALLY at the -strange- name), tho with a little anxiety too. Well I guess licensing is inevitable with certain series, tho I never expected it to happen so fast; and its sobering. On the whole, its good I feel, tho I guess I'll have to be more careful with my posts here now.

I think it might have something to do with the fact that most people won't be able to pronounce Utawarererumomomreomomomono. The title is confusing to me at least. But the title sounds like a lame PSP RPG name I'll agree they could have done better. It's funny because its usually Funimation that does the title renaming, but I've seen ADV do it on occasion as well.

I've heard Americans pronouncing clean sylabbles before, they just need to practice a bit. U-TA-WA-RE-RU-MO-NO isn't rocket science to pronounce. The word is even sung in the ED.
To me, this kind of behavior towards the Japanese language and culture is plain ignorance and insolence, and it's a problem of almost the whole "off-line" American anime fanbase.
