Surly Summaries: Utawarerumono – Itsuwari no Kamen

I’m honestly very torn on this one.  On the one hand this was by far the show I was most interested in during this current season, yes I know it started last season, bite me.  On the other, it was a frustrating step backwards when compared to it’s predecessor.  Now that’s not exactly a huge knock against this show, it just so happens the original Utawarerumono is my second favorite anime of all time for reasons I explained in an older post.  This is still a very good show and I’m truly glad that it didn’t disappoint.  I was honestly a bit worried when the show was first announced, worried that I would get overhyped for it and that it just wouldn’t be able to live up to expectations.  I’m thrilled to say that was not the case.

You know I was going to try and write this as a spoiler free post, but I’m finding it really difficult to talk about the important issues I have with Itsuwari no Kamen, without spoilers.  So I have decided to immediately recommend the original Utawarerumono to whomever reads this, while I start writing up a detailed, spoiler intensive analysis-comparison of the two Utawaerumonos that I’ve honestly been dying to do ever since Itsuwari no Kamen got started.

So in conclusion, Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen, very good show.  Utawarerumono, better show, go watch it, then read my upcoming analysis of the two, I will link it here when it’s done.  See you next time.
