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.
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.
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…
