I did some research since this is an artist I know quite well and I had the stuff on my drive already. My first thought was that since they are animal people maybe the Utawareromono girls have feet different from ours, but it seems to be the case that Amaduya/Amazuyu draws all feet that way. I don't really have an opinion, although if Kuon has them then they must be good. I've made posts and even a thread asking what foot fetishists like and I still can't claim to understand it, sadly, although I think I can understand how finger-like toes would be a bad thing.

I know! I have some of those pics saved and have tried to find patterns before, but it's difficult. For instance >>>/ec/8741 does not seem different to me from the feet in OP's pic, apart from higher quality since wasn't drawn when digital art was new technology. My assumption is that the feet in this thread are "bad" because they're long and thin, instead of short and bulbous.
Well, now that I think about it Aruruu's large toe probably needs to be wider. It's vitally important for keeping balance while upright and was one of our latest evolutionary changes as humans. Kuon has it, so I guess his style did update there. Really, though, I wonder how many people even looked at the feet and thought any of it. They still look fine to me.

There's something weird about the Utawarerumono ear placement in official art. It's like they're almost going into their spine at the back of their neck or something. Maybe just an optical illusion because they always seem to have some hair hiding the connection point, or maybe it didn't look right at all and they're deliberately using the hair to cover it.

You can see in >>47246 that the AI really wants to move the ears up higher and more to the front of the face, but then it picks up some weird artifacts on the lower side. The higher, more forward placement is pretty common in fanart as well.

Well, I don't think it's too complicated. If you want them to have as much visibility as possible they need to be in the front, right? It's most obvious with male characters with short hair on their sides, although some animal people have ears that are completely hidden.

Yes! They all have good, fitting voices. From Aruruu's cuteness to Touka's serious-yet-silliness. I really like Karura/Karalau*'s a lot, too, which might fly under the radar of some people as other characters kind of steal the show.
On the male side I really like Oboro's, but I looked it up and he's barely in anything else, mostly relegated to side characters in the 90s and early 00s, although with a main role in Oboro Ouran Koukou Host Club at least girls will remember him.

One complaint I have about the voicing is that sometimes there are long pauses that make me think the talking is over but it isn't.

I'm around the point where there's a slave rebellion in Na Tunk, it's going badly for the slaves, and Karura has asked Hakuoro to help and has just made the contract about it.

outstanding mysteries at this point
- Why did Mutikapa-sama have uncuttable hair and is Mukkur going to be like that too?
- The way gods and magic in the setting work
- The alternate POV on Witsarnemeia from that girl ouro with the hoop earrings as well as her peoples' magic
- Kamuy's vampirism that nobody knows about, not even Kamuy
- The unknown party who shot a poison needle into Hakuoro's brother in law's neck
- Hakuoro's past, almost too obvious to bring it up. Hinted at when he talked about chemical elements to fertilize that kuso field in the starting village
- Why do they have animal ears and tails. There are still ordinary humans. Hakuoro is one, I think Benawi is one too

I don't think this is meant to be a plot mystery but confused about how/why Eruru's childhood friend got picked up by the nobles of the country that was there before Tuskur was founded. He's a bastard son of that afro ouro? I think I missed a scene.
I also forgot what power bloc Kamuy and her onee-san with the big boobs are from. It's the church of Witsarnemeia but I forgot what particular country they're based on. Wish I could get a personal overview of the political scene from Benawi.
Yuzuha's also due for another seizure but the tension about that is largely alleviated by the fact that the extremely expensive purple medicine that Tuskur-obaachan kept in a jar around her neck is probably not that difficult to obtain when you have the resources of an entire country behind you.

Huh, she's Yuzuha's baby with Hakuoro? I don't remember what I saw from the few anime episodes I watched but I thought Kuon's adult self is contemporaneous with the other shabs. It'll be fun to figure out the timeline later. When I watched Last Exile, I went to the wiki and spoiled myself on all the setting details that I didn't figure out, but there were a lot of them and I would have preferred to uncover those things myself on rewatches.

>>47626
A break.

Ok, as promised I am posting my thoughts. I would need to play it again at least once more to understand the background plot. I don't know if I'll do that or just watch the anime, but in either case I'll take a break from it for some time before returning. By the way, I never unlocked those last two images in Art Appreciation. Do I need to play it in hard mode?

My understanding of the background details/timeline is this:

The setting is the far future of Earth and the story takes place in Japan. Differences that extend to the past are that magic exists and some unexplained lifeform with a mask >>47484 is responsible for apes evolving into humans. I think that lifeform is Witsarnemitea but they look different so I am not confident in that. (On the other hand if you shucked all the bony bits off of Witsarnemitea and flayed its skin I could see it looking like that pictured thing.)

In the far future, humans have achieved mastery over biotechnology and made themselves immortal. But this came at the price of being unable to survive in the wild because they are fragile and have no immune systems, so they must live in sequestered underground environments and use biomechanical suits (the Av Kamiy things) to venture outside. The surface world is wild, unspoiled nature. Animals have evolved so you have things like Woptars and Kimomaus.

One day, a distant evolutionary ancestor (Hakuoro/Iceman) of these future humans is found preserved in ice. Or so they think. He's actually that unexplained lifeform with a mask (I think) in human form. Could be just some random human who stumbled upon the lifeform and got possessed like Diy. In any case, Iceman's biology is that of a human that can survive out in the world so the future humans study him. In their experiments, they genetically engineer and bring to life the various animal eared, winged, and tailed people of Utawarerumono who like Iceman are capable of surviving in the outside world. They're based on Iceman's DNA so in a sense they're all his children. They're used as servants while the future humans quarantine themselves away and communicate through holograms. Iceman himself is also brought back to life from his cryopreservation into the lab with that one shab as a helper. Because Iceman is actually that godlike lifeform, he is capable of manifesting people from his own thoughts (Experiment 69). Iceman is wearing the mask the whole time and the lab director constructs a copy of it. It boosts the director biologically but it is not as good as the actual mask.

The director eventually has a change of heart about all the human experimentation and lets Iceman and the animal people go free, giving Iceman the ring-shaped master key to the lab. They escape to the surface and Iceman has a baby with that one shab. Later the director's heart hardens like he was afraid of and decides to continue the experimenting on Iceman. So he captures Iceman and his family and brings him back. When Iceman learns that his wife and kid have been killed and dissected, Witsarnemitea/the unexplained lifeform within him comes loose, destroying the lab and turning the future humans into undying red slime. Then he passes out/is sealed for at least a few hundred years. I forgot what happened to Experiment 69 but it was probably important.

In the meantime, the animal people spread throughout Japan into a hundred little kingdoms. The Onkamiyamukai nobility consist of the animal people who maintained knowledge of their origins. I guess Experiment 69 ended up with them and reincarnates in the bloodline or something like that. Kamyu as the most direct descendant is possessed by her, and when Mutsumi takes control, Kamyu is one of the many voices from that bloodline that Mutsumi can percieve. Witsarnemitea is sleeping/sealed but as a godlike being of unknown capabilities he is worshipped and is still capable of forming contracts with people.

Shortly before the beginning of the VN, an earthquake appears and uncovers the location where Witsarnemitea sleeps. Diy stumbles in and awakens Witsarnemitea, becoming possessed by him. (Witsarnemitea splits in two at this point for some reason.) This also awakens Iceman, who is heavily injured after the lab was destroyed. Iceman makes his way to a forest where Eruruw finds him and heals him but he has lost his memories. Diy on the other hand remembers everything and begins to foment war, manipulating rulers of the kingdoms and supplying Kuuya's country with Av Kamiy suits.

Some details I am still confused about or ignorant of are:
>What happened to that master key from the lab? I thought it would have come back with the shab wife and kid, but Eruruw eventually inherits it.
>What happened to that second mask the director made?
>That scene from >>47484, where does it actually fit in to the background story?
>What was Genjimaru's backstory? He knew some things and he was under contracts.
>How do Urto and Karura know each other?
>What exactly is Experiment 69?
>How does magic work anyway?
>Where does Witsarnemitea come from?
>WHY was Mutikapa's hair made out of carbon nanotubes or whatever the fuck? That's NEVER explained.

With Gacatar I was totally predicting that there'd be some drama, like Yuzuha becomes deathly ill and Oboro makes the call to kill it, saving her life but causing her to hate him forever. But then nothing happened, subplot just fizzled out.

I realised a few days after finishing it that Karura knew the score with Witsarnemitea all along. She's very close with Urtoriy, who is revealed to know pretty much everything in the end, and there's a scene where she makes a contract with Hakuoro in the name of Witsarnemitea. She's unconcerned with gods because she has a sense of what they are.

It's really tragic how Kuuya ends the game as a traumatised permatard. She lost everything.

My favourite song is White Emperor - Haku Oro.

 No.48014

Oh, and my take on the core conflict of the story is this: If Witsarnemitea can be said to want anything, it wants its children to become stronger. When it splits into two, Hakuoro and Diy represent two contradictory ways of realising this end. Hakuoro nurtures his descendants and lets them grow, represented by Hakuoro the human's attitude towards his subjects. He is a kind ruler who makes life better for them. Diy's side of Witsarnemitea expresses the social Darwinist view of the matter. Turn peace to war and may the strongest survive. Hakuoro wants to kill Diy for obvious reasons---Diy caused those close to Hakuoro to die by the time Diy's revealed to Hakuoro (and the player). Diy equally can't abide Hakuoro for wanting to stop the wars, which he sees as subverting the selection for being the best at waging war.

I lied... I got curious about how the second one started and now I'm getting into it.
All the animal people are all really strong now for some reason but they can't do math or engineering. Reminds me of that one beastwoman from Mushoku Tensei who was described as having another bicep where her brain should be.

>Huh, she's Yuzuha's baby with Hakuoro?
Yes! It probably seemed like a safe omission from the anime 16 years ago, huh.

>Do I need to play it in hard mode?
Hmm, I doubt it. I'd have to look up what those are.

I'll just reply to the stuff that isn't correct or is so abstract that no one really knows, possibly even the writers, or it's something involving Utawarerumono 2 and 3.

>One day, a distant evolutionary ancestor (Hakuoro/Iceman) of these future humans is found preserved in ice. Or so they think. He's actually that unexplained lifeform with a mask (I think) in human form.
He was a regular human archaeologist that stumbled upon the god-like thing. This happened around our current time. During this screenshot >>47484 the being that became known as Iceman/Hakuowlo was just a regular human who got shot in the back and then made a wish/bargain to survive with the seemingly dormant god when his blood splashed onto it. The dormant god that directed humanity and evolution that did this before the "merge", although it's left up to the imagination as to what that was like. HakuGod had seemingly been doing that before the events of the game with the animal people, though.

> with that one shab as a helper.
Her name is Mikoto! How dare you!

> Because Iceman is actually that godlike lifeform, he is capable of manifesting people from his own thoughts (Experiment 69).
Nope. That's a common misconception, but that was another living experiment created from Iceman's DNA that could communicate psychically with him. She's known as Mutsumi and she is a special kind of existence that can manifest in certain winged individuals like Camyu, but I think back then it was her original body. I don't think she knows the DNA thing, but considers him her dad because he spent so much time "with" her when she was otherwise isolated physically in a test tube. This whole part of the game is so depressing. Humans deserved to die.


>Later the director's heart hardens like he was afraid of and decides to continue the experimenting on Iceman.
Nope, the guy that freed them was fired, at best, or killed. He wasn't an all-powerful guy, just a scientist in some position of local authority on his team.

>I forgot what happened to Experiment 69 but it was probably important.
It's Mutsumi, yeah. She tried to kill Hakowlo since he pleaded for it and she "heard" it, but couldn't manage it. She founded the kingdom of the winged people.

>>48013
>(Witsarnemitea splits in two at this point for some reason.)
This actually happened way back at the time when Hakuowlo went berserk and turned humanity into slimes. The rage and guilt caused him to split into two separate entities. I don't know if this was assisted by Mutsumi's attempt to kill him or not, like maybe he was physically blasted into two with perfect timing? You're correct about Dii getting possessed, though.

>What happened to that master key from the lab? I thought it would have come back with the shab wife and kid, but Eruruw eventually inherits it.
I'm not entirely sure on this one. It is, however, something passed down through that family. There seems to be a bit of a theme of reincarnation and fate involved as well.

>What happened to that second mask the director made?
Doesn't really matter, the humans are blobs without faces or intelligence. They were all wiped out shortly after that scene.

>That scene from >>47484, where does it actually fit in to the background story?
I think I explained that above. It's when human Hakuowlo and the god make a contract and fuse

>What was Genjimaru's backstory? He knew some things and he was under contracts.
Kuuya's country made a contract with the dark god (Dii) for power and he was privy to it. Part of its price was absolute loyalty and Genjimaru raising his sword against him meant he got obliterated for violating it.

>How do Urto and Karura know each other?
I don't thnk this is elaborated upon other than they knew each other as kids. The winged people are traveling diplomats so they'd definitely have chances to meet.

>How does magic work anyway?
>Where does Witsarnemitea come from?

It's kind of left as a mystery. It doesn't seem like humans ever had it, though, so maybe it was genetically engineered

>WHY was Mutikapa's hair made out of carbon nanotubes or whatever the fuck? That's NEVER explained.
It's a little strange, but I think it could just be explained away by the harsh environment that everything was in by that point, leading to stronger creatures. They were just dumb villagers with simple farming tools.

>With Gacatar I was totally predicting that there'd be some drama, like Yuzuha becomes deathly ill and Oboro makes the call to kill it, saving her life but causing her to hate him forever. But then nothing happened, subplot just fizzled out.
Well, it did resolve, just not in a happy way. Yuzuha didn't want it to be killed so she could live, and, well... yeah. I was expecting that, too.

I think the overall message that while Hakuowlo wanted to do good, he did ultimately magnify the suffering multiple times when it would have resolved itself with much less bloodshed, although with a worse personal cost at the time.
His actions brought the village to ruin. He created explosives to kill on a greater scale. He went to war with everyone on the continent. Although, as the player's stand-in you pretty much agree with everything he did at the time since he was protecting those dear to him. This is the reason why he chose to be sealed at the end, so he wouldn't create more destruction and suffering.

Ahh, look at Kuon's kind smile there. When I was doing tagging for AI training I wasn't sure if I was supposed to label it as "smile" or "light smile". Danbooru says a light smile is "like the Mona Lisa" in that it's not immediately recognizable, but in tagging practice it seems like it's just a minor smile so something like that is a 'light smile'.

The narration mentions experiments that happened in the surface world. Haku had a sister and a kid, the sister looks like Honoka the high priestess.
