YMMV / Utawarerumono

  • Ensemble Darkhorse - Touka, her cuteness and fighting style have her beat everyone else in polls. Karura might count, though she actually gets her own arc in the story.
  • Fan Nickname - Karura —> "Carrier", a reference to the StarCraft unit made in a fansub and popularized by a shopped doujin page. "Carrier has arrived."
    • Memetic Mutation - Also, the series' title was dubbed too difficult to say/type, so some * channers refer to it as "Underwater Ray Romano", which, combined with some interesting shops of Ray Romano scuba-diving or wearing Hakuoro's mask, naturally leaves many newbies wondering just what the heck the series is about.

  • Memetic Mutation - Because the name can be a mouthful to pronounce, people on 4chan just referred to it as "Underwater Ray Romano".
  • Moral Event Horizon - Mikoto was the first one to bear a child, so they dissected her?!
  • That One Level - In the PC version, stage 23 on higher difficulties is completely brutal. Had fun fighting Hien last stage? Let's try facing around 15 of those things!
  • What an Idiot - The Emperor that turns a small rebellion into a full scale rebellion.
