Utawarerumono OVA: Complete Collection (2009 - 2010/Sentai Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: C Episodes: C+

Welcome back to the world of UTAWARERUMONO, full of mystery, magic, epic battles and animal eared people. However, the OVAs 3 have nothing to do with the main story, just three side stories of our main characters, but this disc is still being issued as Utawarerumono OVA: Complete Collection (2009 - 2010).

Utawarerumono is the tale of Hakuoro, a mysterious masked figure who became the Emperor of world, he united the various warring tribes and brought peace to Utawarerumono. With his wisdom and knowledge, he defeated the warlords and tyrants and while protecting the weak and the innocent, he discovers that he was the last human on Earth and that humans had destroyed themselves long ago. Now, they had been replaced by animal eared people and regressed to a medieval society.

Utawarerumono is a great anime series, the OVAs are more like extra episodes for Utawarerumono fans. Unfortunately, you need to watch the series in order to get a better understanding and appreciate of the OVAs, otherwise you would think it is common anime.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfers are pretty good through, though Sentai's high transfer standards mean they may play well, but not up to their top of the line, and to think 4K Ultra HD 2160p Blu-ray is here! The DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo lossless mixes are presented in decent English and slightly better Japanese versions, both offering some Pro Logic-like surrounds to match the image quality. The combination is just fine. Extras include picture dramas, clean opening and closing animation and trailers.

Episodes are...

The Watchtower's Lullaby - Urutori finds and raises an abandoned baby, but can she let him go when the time comes?

Prescription for a Secret Love - Eluluu helps a stranger with a love potion along with the help of 2 well intentioned con artists.

Sound of a Sword Guard Deep in the Mountains - Touka and Aruruu goes on a survival training in the mountains.
