Kunoichi Tsubaki #13 — Kunoichi Used Puff Puff

July 2nd, 2022


It didn't work.

Utawarerumono 2 continued to suck. While the original Utawarerumono was a war story of a man who happened to amass a harem of dangerous imbeciles, 2 is content to solely be the story of how a harem of imbeciles exists and somewhere a war is happening. For every bit about the war, there's three or four scenes of girls bathing or just lounging around with their boobs out, which is also just about the only thing White Fox is animating with it. Now with extra sadness over killing off a character after 25 episodes. You know, the call to action that the first season did after like… 3. And still has not actually responded to the call.


Actually not that bad of an episode and not a bad way to end things. A bit of action, a few decent jokes about trying to seduce an octopus stuck to an ape's head under the impression that's what a man was, minimized the screaming imbeciles, etc. It didn't make a whole lot of sense, mind you. I assumed it was the teachers in a stupid costume, and not that an octopus had somehow made it from the ocean and was a master martial artist attached to a wild monkey who spent multiple days being strangled while going berserk. But it was all the few things that the first couple episodes had going for it, and it'd have been nice if every episode had been like this one.

Overall, a fairly mediocre show with some glimmers here and there of what could've been a silly action comedy of mistaking anything/everything for dudes in comical ways, but no more than maybe three or four episodes of that at the most while the rest were faff at best, obnoxious at worst. You could make a decent advertisement reel out of it, but nobody will remember this exists come two weeks from now.

    I find it incredible that in all the anime a man never appeared (unless the male animals count) despite the fact that the protagonist had her sexual awakening towards them, it is like a nonsense wherever you see it
