what's wrong with those protagonist now . Are they all stupid? 10 min in the first episode and he's always acting like a retard crybaby. He's arrogant, lazy, rude. I'm not sure i'm gonna waste my time watching another episode of that series.
AAAAH! I want to give this one a better rating. . I really really do. I love a good solid fantasy setting, but the setting without the proper pieces just falls short. Not to say that Utawarerumono didnt have some great aspects, but it just didnt quite meet my standards.So where to begin? This anime started off with some great intruige. I was immediately captivated. great fantasy setting, neat character design, flashy animation, and solid music to boot. maybe 3 episodes in, you start to realize that this is an episode of the day introduction to every character. it took half the anime to introduce the main cast. . . . . . ouch. This hurt the anime in terms of pacing, I almost stopped watching. I was so bored. after the mid point it started to pick up. The little hints of story that were thrown at you during the character intro episodes finally come to light. Now, the first half was way slow, basically doing a filler + intro to character together. In the second half, it was the opposite. immensly important parts were glazed over in mere half an episode or an episode. What the hell?!between the super slow, albiet meaningless character intros and super fast important info, you lose a TON of the meat of the story. The characters became meaningless to me, the story wisped by without so much as a "hello world!" and thenthere was the final episodeand the feels that came with itThat final episode tried to tie everything up and put a bow on it. However it wasnt packaging a nice gift, it was packaging a sloppy attempt and trying to redeem it.into my normal breakdownStory: The underlying story was neat, but the execution was terrible. When you have 24 episodes, you dont have time to spend 12 of those showing off a few minor characters. Because of the terrible pacing and bad focus, 7.Animation: super neat, very tight, well done. 9.5 Sound: loved it, really brought out the fantasy flavor with a feeling of grandious adventure, which the story didnt deliver well. 9.5Characters: heavily heavily heavily overused secondary and turshiary characters. Again bad focus in the wrong places broke the immersion of the anime and turned it into every little b*tch characters problem. I dont care. Solve your problem during the main storyline you insignificant troll characters!!!which is too bad, because I thought the characters themselves were neat, but they were used badly. 7 Overall: got a lower score because this anime had a ton to work with, and made waaaaay too many bad moves. I couldn come to love it, the last episode was the only slightly redeeming factor.
The anime starts off relatively slowly, with the plot taking a subordinate role to exposition. I was a little disappointed AT FIRST as the plot progression was nowhere near the pace of the 1st series, but that changed in the second half of the season, and I was not disappointed. The exposition might be a little slow but it's also lighthearted and funny. Story: Get to the end and you won't regret it. I loved the story and I loved the enormous potential for a great sequel that promises to be action-packed and full of intrigue and character development. Animation: Character design was fantastic, and the animation overall was pretty good. A few scenes here and there were noticeably questionable in terms of design, but that's relatively minor for me. Sound: Good music, enhanced and developed the mood of the scenes for the most part, which helps you engage with the plot. Characters: Great characters that you can get to know and love. A lack of character development for a few of them, but the main characters are developed well enough, particularly Kuon and Haku. Kuon is the best, kana.
