Utawarerumono, The False Faces is a Japanese television series directly adapted from the adult RPG video game series of the same name by Leaf Studios and, later, Sting Studios. The television series focuses in on a young man named Haku who awakes without any prior knowledge. He does not know who he is nor where he is and very shortly after awakening Haku is confronted by a giant centipede which attempts to devour him. However, the centipede is chased off by a strange blob like creature which begins to speak to him. Terrified Haku fears that this will be then end and that the creature will consume him, however, before he reaches his untimely end he is saved by a young and powerful warrior, a cat woman named Kuon. Kuon, however, is also a healer as well as a fighter and so she takes the wounded man back to her village where she and the village elders determine that he has amnesia and that he does not even remember his own name. So they decide to give him a name, Haku, and put him to the test, doing chores around the village. However, he proves completely inept at even the most basic of tasks. In addition to this he has little stamina, no martial ability and proves himself laze and indifferent from the most common place of daily struggles. Despite all these character flaws the villagers find Haku to be a master strategist and profound builder and architect - just the traits they need to slay the vile giant centipede once and for all.
