A Man with No Past may Hold the Key to the Future

HOUSTON, TX — December 12, 2006 — From Oriental Light and Magic Studios, comes the tale of a man in a mask that can't be removed. Catch the mystery of this mask unravel when Utawarerumono: Mask of a Stranger premieres January 4, 2007 on Anime Network—America's #1 Anime Channel!

WHAT: U.S. VOD Premiere of Utawarerumono: Mask of a Stranger

Everything about Hakuoro is a mystery. The mask that he can't remove, a past he can't unravel and the very survival of the people who have chosen him as their leader. What Haruoro doesn't know is that he was gravely injured in a forest and left for dead. A kind, young girl named Eluluu found him and nursed him back to health. Welcomed into a barren land where strange creatures roam, an angry god seeks vengeance and an oppressive government slaughters the innocent, while a bloody war looms on the horizon. Will the masked hero be able to liberate the people who saved him? Can he unlock the memories that elude him, or will he remain a stranger…even to himself? The answers are right before his eyes (or are they?) in the thrilling, killing and pillaging first volume of Utawarerumono!

WHERE: Anime Network, America's #1 Anime Channel

HOW: Don't have VOD? Don't worry! Catch volume 1 of Utawarerumono: Mask of a Stranger; available Tuesday (1/16/07) on DVD!
