Utawarerumono 21 - What?

Just when I thought this could be good one they add stupid mecha and ruin almost everything. Not only mecha sucks as usual, but it's also feels so out of place that things won't fit together at all. Pikemen, archers and angels against robots, right. Not really anything else to say, why Japanese have a obsession to add robots to the places they don't belong?

Heh, I can see that I'm not the only one who didn't like this change. This series was indeed showing potential from episode 10, though with the previous two episodes, they totally ruined it.

Yeah, it's little sad. Oh well, I'm not sure if I watch it to the end, but if I do it sure as hell isn't good anymore.

If you read into the past of Hakuoro, you would know why that group of people have those big mechanical looking machines. Hakuoro's past is an interesting one, if the anime explains, you guys won't be disappointed.

Well, no matter how much the story explains it I don't care. This is still a fantasy show, far from mecha.

I don't care how you'd retroactively explain how Hakuoro's past leads to mecha, it still feels totally wrong to make it all sci fi without a hint of foreshadowing (barring the OP).

Even scrapped princess's villains had names of modern guns.

//without a hint of foreshadowing//

Yep, despite the fact that at the end of episode 17 there was a large 50 foot bipedal clanking thing walking through a forest that screams mecha to the high hills, there is absolutely no way that could be considered foreshadowing....right

Okay, I've seen episode 22. It's indeed a bit better, and laughable at times. Still, there's got to be a very good explanation for the fact that Hakuoro once was a researcher...

Oh, and Hakuoro's monster design also worked a bit anticlimactic.

My guess is that he is some sort of cyborg from future and that's why he wears that mask...

Its called Japanese people are futureistic, and most people like to put in robots because most like it. And the Japanese part is really insulting to me since I am Japanese.
