うたわれハーレム or would it best be labeled as ‘unlimited harem works’? Truth be told, don’t think we can fault “Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen” for being too overt or aggressive about its harem or ecchi elements when compared to many other contemporary harem anime. Plenty of franchises out there that are worse.
Nonetheless it’s undeniable that after adding more girls in Haku’s group nearly each episode, “Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen” can no longer hide its harem traits after the previous episode where Haku is presented with the lovely shrine maidens Uruuru and Saraana as a gift for him to use and serve his every whim.
羨ましいです! I’m so envious! Why can’t that happen to me?!? Because of reality? orz
This episode, along with Uruuru and Saraana’s appearance, do appeal to my favorite fetishes… Though undoubtedly this is what the creators had in mind when they included such characters.
Wonder if they will be anything more than the obedient servants (read: slaves) they let themselves appear to be and if their appearance will be more than a gimmick to trigger comedy and incite hilarious reactions from the other girls.
With the first half of the anime nearly over, am curious what “Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen” will have in store for us next.
