Everything about him is shrouded in mystery. The mask he can't remove. The past he can't unravel. And the very survival of the people who have chosen him as their leader. But what Hakuoro does know is this: he was gravely injured and left for dead in a forest. A kind young girl named Eruruu found him and nursed him back to health. He was welcomed into a barren land where strange creatures roam, an angry god seeks vengeance, an oppressive government slaughters the innocent, and a bloody war looms on the horizon. Will the masked hero liberate the people who saved him? Can he unlock the memories that elude him? Or will he remain a stranger even to himself?

Utawarerumono manages to be one of those harem animes that anyone can possibly find enjoyable, even if they don't particularly like the concept of harems. Based on the ero-game with the same title, Utawarerumono focuses on an amnesiac man who is found critically injured in a rural village. With the kindness of the villagers, he recovers and spends his days peacefully with them. However, the peaceful times quickly end with a heart shattering event that throws the man and his fellow villagers into a life of war.

The story in Utawarerumono is somewhat simplistic at first, with a majority of the anime following a simple formula read more

For about 4/5 of the series, I really enjoyed myself. I’m not usually into science fiction/supernatural anime series, so I wasn’t looking forward to anything when I started watching Utawarerumono. However, I was proven wrong. Utawarerumono was just so exciting and fun to watch and I really liked it – 4/5 of the 26 episodes. For the last 1/5, I didn’t like it too much. I don’t wanna give out any spoilers, so I’ll just say that the last arc was too weird and it didn’t register.

All the characters were really likable and I felt sorry for them whenever another war or battle emerges. It’s read more

What comes to mind when a visual novel gets an anime adaptation? Usually I think average guy, a bunch of overly cute unattainable girls and some kind of story arc surrounding each girl. However Utawarerumono disregards this overused high school romantic formula, with girls that require conquering like a RPG boss and goes for a more fascinating approach.

Utawarerumono is an Action Adventure set in a world of Fantasy. Just think Lord of the Ring, but minus the Ring and Hobbits. Following the disturbing opening scene, we our introduced to our protagonist, a mysterious masked man with no recollection of who he is and why read more

one of my all time favorites, this show is a crowd pleaser. disguised fanservice and comedy are inlcuded but do not mess with the plot. if your going to watch this watch in japanese with english subs(see sound for explanation)

the story is very unique. war is a prevailant theme but other themes are displayed throughout. themes like love, compassion, vengeance, courage, friendship. they all leave their mark on this show. masterfully delivery of the amnesia portion of the plot. flashbacks shedding light on the story and hakouro's past in small amounts at perfect moments. based off a read more

Both anime are adaptations of a RPG game by Leaf and were animated by the same studio. The plot is a bit similar, since the main characters have to defend their country from any enemy that tries to conquer it.

Mass battles, twists, fan service, great stories.

"Utawarerumono" is one of the many other works of Japanese fantasy to have been inspired by the "Guin Saga". The similarities are obvious ^^

Both Utawarerumono and Oda Nobuna no Yabou place a male protagonist in a strange world based on a historical setting rife with war, diplomacy, and romance.

The lives of the protagonists of either series prior to their arrival in this new world are explored very little if at all. They take an active and often leadership role in their new surroundings. Both stories are focused on their adventures in these new places and their interactions and relationships with the individuals they find there. They also make use of their knowledge of modern science and techniques to improve the lives of those close to them  read more

somewhat the same, since they both have rebellions 
reportRecommended by Vin-nii
Both begin in the same atmosphere, the fantasy-medieval world, and head toward a bit sci-fi as the series progresses. The art is somewhat similar and the fights between the characters are also very well drawn. Even though Utawarerumono is packed with girls (a bit of a harem there), it clearly shares the same genre as Scrapped Princess. Fantasy, magic, action and awesome battles, you'll find all in both Utawarerumono and Scrapped Princess.
