Holy ecstasy! Not only will we get an Utawarerumono OVA
next year, perhaps even an ero-OVA - much to the delight of everyone who vigorously enjoyed the earlier (non-ero) fantasy anime series
from 2006. But a PSP version of the original eroge
by Aquaplus that spawned this lovely franchise is also coming in 2009, along with a portable ToHeart 2
also for the PSP, set to include "the long awaited Sasara Kusugawa route". How f...furry great is that!
According to reports from the recent Aquaplus Live Festa 2008, the game company itself is animating the OVA through its multimedia studio, under the direction of Kenichirou Katsura (ToHeart2, Comic Party: Revolution character designer), and with help from animation studio Chaos Project.
The Utawarerumono OVA is planned as a 3-volume anime, with the first volume set for release on DVD and Blu-ray on June 5, 2009. Best of all, with no TV version, no TV ethics and no TV worries in mind, they are promising that the OVA "won't be covering things up with steam or avoiding interesting angles; it'll be a more mature work"
If the thought alone of pulling Aruru's tails doesn't do it for you, may we recommend some medication, in the form of an early Utawarerumono OVA trailer
. What's that? Steamy bathing scenes and Aruru getting drunk? Where do I sign up!
This first OVA episode will apparently be about an abandoned baby discovered in the land of Tusukuru. Hakuoro and his furry harem will then try to uncover the identity of the baby, but not without delighting us with plenty of hawtness and lulz.
Thanks to San'plex
for these fantastic bits and pieces of news. Wait till my pedo comrade sobres up and sees this one!
