Waking up cold and alone in the woods, a nameless man is surrounded by unfamiliar scenes. Without any memories, he is utterly lost until he stumbles upon Kuon—a young girl with animal ears and a tail. She saves him, leading him back to her town while protecting them both from "boro-gigiri"—giant centipede-like creatures—and a mysterious red slime. After they arrive, she names him Haku after a prominent historical figure from the area. He quickly realizes he is one of a kind—the only one without animal ears and a tail. The two journey to the capital of Yamato, the country in which Kuon lives, meeting more people and making new friends, all the while unknowingly delving deeper into the politics and inner conflicts of Yamato... Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen follows Haku as he slowly uncovers the secrets of this alien world. He works to solve the mysteries surrounding the red slimes, as well as to stop war from erupting among the nearby countries.

A standalone sequel of Utawarerumono.
… I want to play the game because this anime ended in a cliffhanger…


This one provided me a fun twist as the need to protect a family name overcomes the need to remain your own self


Would have been better if it didn’t keep on introducing more characters and spent so many episodes on sol hijinks in the capital.


Utter trash of a sequel.


There is a first season to this one, both are alright, but could have been better.


Felt like it was setting up for another season. First one was much better.


Dragged on a little long but very good alternate universe setting
