DomFortress The mist People are those who seem to understand more than what they're letting in, but that can also be the fact that the majority of people in that world don't trust them. However they do respect the Mist People's skills when it comes to common interest. The Mist People don't think that the people of their world are ready for them, while the rest of the world hold some sort of prejudice toward the Mist People for them being the minority.

One thing I do realize is that the Mist People respect the nature and its laws, while the rest of them in that world only fear those that are more powerful than them. The Mist people habituate coexistence through mutual respects, while the rest of the people either oppress those that they fear, or obey those that are more powerful; they don't question nor would they challenge their authorities. And when no answer nor acceptance were given, they often react immaturely.


But recall that the Mist People hold to a code of conduct that supersedes their own lifes. Though, grant it, this is more towards maintaining the "secret" than a set of rituals or values.
I concur with your assessment of the Mist People. I feel we will get a chance to find out a little more about their secret in the next few episodes.

However, in the kingdoms there is rising up a challenge to the status quo, not everyone is playing clone to the customs of the land. The split kingdoms, the civil unrest, the war, the secrets of the animals, the reason the Beast-lords don't fly, and so many other plot issues give this anime so many directions it can go in. I'm really glad I didn't write it off and not watch it.

I would encourage anyone viewing this thread that hasn't watched this anime to give it a try.

Indeed. Perhaps the "secret" that the Mist People are keeping has something to do with their forbidden technique, the reason that the Beast-Lords don't fly, and the history about their people and their ways of life. Before they had to seal them all away.

The way I see it, the civil unrest and the warring kingdoms are backlashes caused by human nature. When people don't respect each other due to their different social classes, while their kingdoms try to expand beyond their boundaries. Of all their rules and customs, there's not a word about basic human rights and equality. They don't recognize their true nature, while they confide each others by ways of social rules and not family values. It's as if nature found its way to overcome humans' way of nurturing, when humans are teaching themselves not to respect nature's way of balancing.

True mastery of control isn't with oppression nor regulation, but through direction and flow. Just because you managed to control the symbol of power in that world, doesn't mean that you're all powerful. When you lost control of your own power and ended up abusing that power, because you were enslaved by your desire to rule the world in the first place.


such is the paradox... If you are, you can't say because you won't be.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that's called being humble.

From what I've seen so far (4 episodes) I have to infer that the empire is a monarchy. And if you know anything about government, you'll know that a monarchy leads to a lot of corruption. The civil unrest is most likely due to bad leadership and from the clips cut in pertaining to the Queen and her heir, no one seemed real happy.

Though I've only seen 4 episodes, there wasn't much indication of a caste system (other than common folk -> nobility) or the struggles that the public have with them(more like the gap between the rich and poor). I don't think that Erin will go down a stereotypical path of "the girl who over came her heritage". At least I hope not

Like a few of you said, it can go many ways. I just hope it doesn't go the way most story's do.

Erin is a strong willed free thinker, in a sense that she has a strong love towards her mother, who respect all living creatures equally.

However such an individual is destine to achieve greatness, but only by the power of her intellect and the strength of her heart.

Hello songofanime, and welcome to the discussion.

I hope you enjoy Erin as you view more episodes, plus we look forward to your feedback. Further into the anime we get a chance to view some underlining struggles between the kingdoms, between Erin and the customs of that society, and several other threads (brothers, royal family, traditions and the "Secret").

I almost missed out on watching Erin because I didn't like the animation style and also the "supposed" theme, i.e. "ten year old saves world." I'm glad that didn't happen because this has been a rewarding anime to be involved in.

Have a great day!

I'm glad you confirmed my belief that this won't be a repeat of element hunters. I've decided to pace myself watching this anime (usually I watch every episode available), with/when CR releases each one. I've only hit the tip of the ice berg on this one, so I didn't have a clue as to what the other fans where talking about (secret, royalty, etc.). I might decide to write my opinion on each episode then publish it all at once (like I did with samurai champloo). That way I can fully capture all the elements with this soon-to-be complex anime (from what I've heard).

That's great, and I look forward to your assessment of the episodes. I certainly hope you do enjoy Erin. I hate to recommend something and it turns out to not be a good recommendation. But I think you may be drawn into this storyline as I was.

Wow, with Ep 38 things are beginning to get serious. Erin's little secret is out of the bag, it appears from the previews that in Ep39 her Big Secret will be exposed.

Things are going to turn upside down (literally, I guess) on the Queen's return to the palace.

Kemono no Souja Erin has been a good anime to follow.

I just finished watching episode 32, and now am starting to realize why some of these laws are so draconian. Based on the fact that a whole country is now a wasteland due to the war that occurred there. I found it so fitting to human nature that instead of learning from the experience (and the behavior of these animals) and forbidding the use of the animals in warfare, they just obfuscate the facts with draconian laws that seem unduly strict and nonsensical to those who are expected to follow them.

I am enjoying this story, but there has been more than one occasion where I wondered why Erin was not supplied with some of these facts earlier. The Watcher from the Clan of the Mist only informed Erin about NOT flying her Ohju AFTER they flew for the first time. Oopsie! Sure, the situation could not have been avoided at that point, but you would think that (seeing how bright Erin was) that Soh-Yon or the Watchman couldn't have given her the facts earlier.

As you climb into the late 30s of the episode, you will find your hunch confirmed in several ways. But I will not comment further on that aspect because I don't want to be a source of spoilers.

As to the Mist watcher, he did comment that they thought Erin might "develop her own" method of handling the Ohju (and thus violating the Code!) Seems like Erin keeps getting into "loose/loose" situations.

I look forward to your comments about the later episodes.

PS be sure to check out animenewsnetwork's review on Erin. I thought it was well written.

Please try to user the Spoiler Alert next time and not make blatant comments that reveals plot changes.

Just like I did quoting your post.

It's really simple to use. Highlight the comment that will cause a spoiler then at the top bar you will see a Triangle with a "!" Just click on that and it will put the html tags around the statement for you. Not too hard to be courteous
