 IMPRESSIONS

I have heard of the Utawarerumono series, but I had never heard of this particularly game or that it was a Hack-and-Slash with Action RPG elements within it.  I am really in love what I am seeing so far.

While I do not think the art is top tier, the character designs are amazingly well done in how they move.  The superb voice acting and animated attack sequences in the middle of battle are really bringing me to life.

Overall, this is an excellent trailer for Utawarerumono: ZAN that is making me anticipate the game from the first look.  This trailer is also suppose to be the first part of introducing characters, so I cannot wait until I get to see more!
