Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 08

This disgustingly underrated show of this season just keeps getting better and better. There are a lot of things that I want to say and even though I am still not completely over my gold, I simply refuse to keep this post short.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.11_[2015.11.24_23.49.33]What I want to get out in the open is the thought of us, the fans, getting to know Haku a bit better. We know almost nothing about him or where he comes from. Now it seems that people have started to take notice of him and, like me, want to know more about him. But that, like with most delicate things, is like a double-edged sword; there’s a chance that if Haku were to remember where he came from that his entire personality changes and that he chooses to go back. I don’t mind if he goes back to wherever he came from at the end of the show, but I wouldn’t like to a change in his personality.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_22.50_[2015.11.24_23.50.09]There. I said it. Now that that’s done I can focus on this week’s main event; the possibility of a corrupt general. Well, I say possibility because I hate to jump the gun. But yeah, he’s a dirty pig that ended up endangering everyone at that party by trying to get huge insects to fight each other for sport. That’s bound to go wrong at some point.

I’m not sure if that’s enough evidence to convict that pig (whose name I can’t be bothered to write due to it being so damn annoying). That would mean that a new general would be needed and I am kind of hoping that the owner of the inn or one of Kuon’s other ‘mothers’ gets that spot. Slim that of that happening, but hey, one can still hope.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 07

I still think this show is a masterpiece, but I must admit that I’m starting to get a little confused with all these new characters making their appearance. I might have to watch one or two episodes again in order to get back on track.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.11_[2015.11.17_23.47.36]The thing that confuses me most is the amount of princess. All these characters keep piling up and it’s really starting to become a harem for Haku to enjoy. The problem with introducing a new character each week is that the protagonist doesn’t make a lot of progress with any of the other characters. It’s been quite some time since we some quite a few promising scenes.

I thought, after Kuon’s ‘mothers’ made their appearance, that we were finally going somewhere. Maybe Kuon was going to open up a little, maybe that other princess was going to admit to herself that she’s interested in Haku or maybe the inn’s owner is going to continue teasing Haku a little bit more because he looks like someone she used to know.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.49_[2015.11.17_23.47.51]Instead we get another princess that ended up revealing herself for the first time ever. She’s supposedly very old, but instead we get another loli character that cannot be considered a potential girl for Haku’s little harem. I mean, she’s really tiny. In fact, one of her servants actually had to give her a spanking because she kept bothering people (eating their food, trespassing, destroying stuff, you name it) and whatnot. It’s obvious that she’s going to be a handful and I think that she shows quite a bit of promise, but I would really prefer it if they stopped pushing all those ‘princesses’ every week. It’s been like that ever since Haku and Kuon reached the capital…

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 06

Damn you! Damn you illness! I want to write a decent post about this episode so badly! I loved it. I knew right away that this show was special. I’m so glad that I picked this. I really am. No regrets whatsoever and I don’t think I will have any.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.10_[2015.11.10_23.38.32]Okay, writing this post as I cough up a lung might not be my ideal way to spend my time right now, but it’ll have to do. I am just so happy that we got to meet the inn’s owner, whom turned out to be one of the characters that helped raise Kuon. She is very interesting and I think we can expect a lot of great things from her.

I say this because she took an interest in Haku. He, according to her, looks a lot like someone she used to love. Kuon is also starting to grow fond of him even though she doesn’t seem to realize it yet. I’m pretty sure that it’ll turn into some kind of harem soon. It’s kind of cliché but I don’t mind at all. I think that it would fit perfectly. I can’t wait to see what happens next. I sure hope I get to see more of the inn’s owner.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 05

I could watch this all day. It’s so relaxing and amusing to watch that I forget to pay attention to the clock. Time goes by fast when I watch this. I’d prefer if they would just release the entire show so that I could watch it in one session.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.03_[2015.11.03_23.53.29]So Haku was once again put to work. He had to do all sorts of handyman chores and study their language so that he could read and write. They know that he’s most useful when using his head. He’s not strong, he doesn’t really know how to fight and he knows very little about that world of theirs. It makes him sound like dead weight, but nothing could be further from the truth. He appears to be a very smart, adaptable and loyal guy. He is very handy and definitely knows a thing or two that could help him make a living in that strange world.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.19_[2015.11.03_23.54.05]There was that. Haku was being put to work. Noting new if you look at other episodes. But then this princess character shows up and things change completely. The way she looks, the way she talks and the way she thinks just completely turn things around. We went from a one-direction story to one with multiple outcomes. In fact, it’s slowly starting to look like harem story where the protagonist has all these girls fall in love with him and follow him around. They even live with him under the same roof, which promises many encounters.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 04

I really want to write a decent-size post about this week’s episode, but I can’t. I think I’ve come down with a classic case of the common cold and I just want to finish this fast and dive right into bed after finish my honey tea.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.50_[2015.10.28_00.04.26]This episode was simply great. There wasn’t any fighting and I am fine with that. Seeing those guys fool around like that really made my week. Watching Ukon’s little sister observe that guy was interesting in itself, but when that other girl kept getting weird ideas about Ukon in some kind of gay love-fest I simply lost control. That was hilarious!

It was not much of a surprise to find out that Ukon was actually a general of the capital. The guy is strong and has shown great leadership skills. I would’ve been more surprised if it turned out that he was just a regular Joe that went from one place to the other. To think that he’s trying to recruit Haku… Things are about to get really interesting!
