For those who do not know what Utawarerumono is, it is a 2002 adventure visual novel / strategy RPG from Leaf. Originally an adult game, it also has all-ages incarnations as a manga, TV anime series, and Playstation 2 game. It follows the story of Hakuoro, man who awakens in a forest near a village wearing a mask and suffering amnesia. He is soon discovered by a girl named Eruruw, who takes him back to the village and helps him recover. He slowly becomes a villager and takes up their lifestyle. However, when the village becomes threatened by an oppressive ruler, the village begins a rebellion with Hakuoro the leader. However, this is just the start of his battles for the freedom of his country.
