Munemitsu Suga is supervising the scenario, and Takamitsu Kouno (ToHeart2ad, Utawarerumono OAV, We Without Wings – Under the Innocent Sky, Abnormal Physiology Seminar) is serving as series script supervisor. Naoya Shimokawa (To Heart franchise) and AQUAPLUS are credited with the music.
Famitsu described the original story as follows:
When I came to, I realized I was standing in the middle of a vast, snowy plain I knew nothing of. I didn’t know how I got there. And to add to that, I couldn’t remember anything, not even my name. I stood there, dumbfounded at my absurd situation. But then, as if to spite me further, a gigantic monster suddenly appeared, a insect-like creature that began to bear down on me. I tried desperately to run, but it cornered me into a hopeless situation. It was then that the girl appeared. Her name was Kuon. It was this beautiful girl, who bore an animal’s ears and tail, that saved my life.
Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen premiered in Japan on TV Tokyo on October 3 at 25:00 (effectively, October 4 at 1:00 a.m.). Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan. The series is listed with 25 episodes.
ADV Films originally licensed the first Utawarerumono TV anime, but FUNimation Entertainment later picked up the license. Sentai Filmworks announced on Tuesday that it has licensed the Utawarerumono OAV.
