We're in the home stretch of catching up on shows with sequels coming out in the Summer season!
Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen's first 13 episodes will be streamed this Friday, and the final 12 episodes + Bonus will be next Friday, both at my usual streaming time of 6PM EST/11PM UTC!
For those who may be new to this, kissu has an anonymous-supporting fork of cytube and the channel we're using for this is:

Utawarerumono is a trilogy close to my heart, so much so that I can type it by memory!
Grand story, amazing characters, beautiful art, atmospheric music (RIP Mameda ;_;) and the gameplay in 2 and 3 are actually pretty great if you ask me. I'm going into the anime adaptation blind, however, but if it's half as good as the VN then you're in for a treat.
This is technically season 2, but it's not too strongly related to season 1 which had released a decade earlier. The VNs also share a similar gap in release dates. I'll see if I can find a relevant summary somewhere, though, if people are going in blind.

I will warn you ahead of time if you're someone that avoids conflict in media then this isn't for you. It's a world at war and it also has some really sad moments in it that aren't directly related to war. But, there is also lots of slice of life moments and positive emotions of comradely and romance in it.

It's from the Utawarerumono [long Japanese names] Official Visual Collection, yeah.


the episodes we watched really piqued my interest, think I'll watch season 1 before next week


File:explorer_TmL17dFshk.jpg (421 KB,1482x902)

Ah, that's a great idea. You definitely have time and the first cour unexpectantly had no major story development.

Also, while watching the stream I was overzealous in taking screenshots in another window so I have 1072 images. After I combine it with next week's I'll upload them all.

So which one do you guys prefer; this one or the original 2006 version?


File:Utawarerumono.S02E05.False….jpg (234.32 KB,1920x1080)

I only played the VN (and its remaster later on) so I can't say which anime I like more. I'll probably start watching it now and then, but the first one's story is still pretty fresh in my mind.
VN-wise I definitely prefer 2 and 3 over 1, although it did lose its eroge roots. The sex scenes weren't great, but having them there adds a level of atmosphere. Everything else though, from story to gameplay to characters to music to art was a massive leap forward.


is this some ancient /a/ content?


File:0e9c146bf1c0cf19b2551e56b7….jpg (281.58 KB,768x768)

Yes, it is an intentional misspelling of the title since it's hard to pronounce it for Americans because of their "arawrawraw" R's.

My only wonder is now that the SoL is out of the way, how much time do they have left to dedicate to the serious stuff?


File:Utawarerumono.S02E07.False….jpg (322.72 KB,1920x1080)

The third VN is quite a bit longer than the second one. VNDB puts Uta 2 at 37 hours and Uta 3 at 56 hours.
Mm, seems a lot shorter than I remember. I definitely spent a lot of time doing optional missions, I guess, but both of the games seem longer than that to me. I guess Easy difficulty would let you mow through stuff without thinking?

Anyway, the SoL focus is pretty much gone for the most part and the "conclusion" of S2 which we'll watch this Friday is a big cliffhanger. It was something mentioned to me years ago and I delayed reading the second VN because of it, and I'm definitely glad I did.
Anyone thinking "Man, I wish I watched this 7 years ago": I wouldn't be so sure about that.
Then again, Japanese endings are "supposed" to leave you unsatisfied and upset, aren't they?


File:1.mp4 (13.89 MB,1280x720)

The original plan was to have this special air in the stream, but there's some story stuff buried in it that would be too much of a spoiler, so I've trimmed those pieces out. There's some stuff related to Part 3 so I wouldn't be able to upload this unedited until December.
I don't want to learn how to combine videos, so I just split it into 5 videos.

It's a flashback into a very kissu relevant part of Kuon's childhood.


File:2.mp4 (14.11 MB,1280x720)

[Someone tries to comfort Kuon and something happens, but I have to skip it]
And then this...


File:3.mp4 (6.08 MB,1280x720)

[Something happens again with someone]
Fast forward to night...


File:4.mp4 (3.01 MB,1280x720)

[Kuon is still upset at Oboro and pulls a prank, but I can't show it]


File:5.mp4 (608.79 KB,1280x720)

[Eruruu enacts punishment]
The next morning...
The End.


Who's the protagonist of Utawararararamono?


File:Utawarerumono.S02E05.False….jpg (231.34 KB,1920x1080)

In the first VN "you" are Hakuowlo and in the second and third one "you" are Haku. Like many adaptations it really doesn't care over into the anime.


no cute girl protagonists sigh


a bit of your happiness just escaped...


File:[anon] Utawarerumono - Tus….jpg (251.95 KB,1920x1080)

The OVA I just watched sure is silly and pointless. Loli Kuon is cute though.


File:Utawarerumono.S02E12.False….jpg (376.21 KB,1920x1080)

WHAT?! There's like 8 of them and I just said that the anime doesn't follow the typical VN narrative protagonist thing.

Not a spoiler if you watched episode 12

>no cute girl protagonists


none of those girls are passibly cute


File:[-__-'] Utawarerumono 01 [….jpg (309.19 KB,1920x1080)

Ummmm.... I thought it wasn't necessary to watch the first series... You're telling me it's OK to miss out on THIS?


File:Utawarerumono.S02E09.False….jpg (234.69 KB,1920x1080)

Well, people have different tastes and that's life.
Oh yeah, I uploaded the soundtrack in the filesharing thread


Well... hmmm...
We could always add it to a couple Friday streams maybe. The important thing was to get 2 out before 3 since it's the same cast of characters and it's really one story


I think I set my all time binge watching record with the first season, I watched 22 episodes that day.


File:[Anime Time] Utawarerumono….jpg (198.11 KB,1920x1080)

What is this Barbie doll shit though? There aren't even nipples in the BD. This is supposed to be an eroge!


File:[Wizard] Utawarerumono [fa….jpg (268.85 KB,1920x1080)

Meanwhile in the 2006 version... Yeah, this is simply inferior to the original, sorry.


anime then anime now...


Correction: this is from the 2009 OVA that I didn't watch yet, but I'm pretty sure there are some nipples in the 2006 version too if I remember it correctly.


File:[Drag] Utawarerumono OVA -….jpg (Spoiler Image,158.39 KB,1920x1080)

Meh. I think there's still plenty of fan service, just no nipples. They spent so much time in the baths...
And of course specials are going to be more risque.
But yeah, it's not an eroge any more.


File:[anon] Utawarerumono - Tus….jpg (Spoiler Image,201.97 KB,1920x1080)

Why are you spoilering a butt you PRUDE



File:[Drag] Utawarerumono OVA -….jpg (207.6 KB,1920x1080)

I just uploaded 5 separate video files specifically to avoid spoilers and you do that...


File:butt.jpg (84.65 KB,788x954)

He spoilered my butt too, the audacity


File:03 - Violet And Amber.mkv_….jpg (202.07 KB,1280x720)

Anyway, I've started watching the first one on second monitor and I'm checking for any relevant plot points I may have missed describing upthread. I think I got most of it, though, but we'll see.


File:10 - The Mercenary.mkv_sna….jpg (243.78 KB,1280x720)

As I finish episode 11 Uta 1's story is still what I said it was earlier. I don't think I've missed describing anything up there starting at >>91693

Karalau's sword is cool. It's not very relevant, but the "this is a hunk of metal and not a sword" Guts thing is always appreciated.


I think I kinda agree with this sentiment. While 1 is still pretty great, 2 feels like a sort of maturing of the team as storywriters and you can really tell they've learned.


File:087_Mitsumi_Misato_Art_Wor….jpg (4.15 MB,4878x6960)

Yeah, it was something like 15 years, too. It's pretty amazing that so many of the people are the same. Sadly, much of their stuff never makes it over here and I'm never going to learn Japanese.
Well, not that I'm interested in how they're milking Utawarerumono with gacha or board games, really.
Dungeon Travelers 2-2, though... Yeah, not having that really hurts and it's a vita game so the window shut a long time ago.


File:Utawarerumono.S02E13.False….jpg (252.04 KB,1920x1080)

It's starting in about 50 minutes!


File:00135.jpg (341.54 KB,1356x1920)


File:00120.jpg (259.38 KB,1356x1920)

Ah, and to clarify we're starting where we left off: episode 14.
