Review: Seirei no Moribito


Plot Summary: Balsa the spearwoman is a wandering warrior, who takes on the task of saving lives, in atonement for a past sin. On her journey, she happens to save a prince, and is tasked with becoming his bodyguard. And he is going to need one, for his own father, the emperor, wants him dead.


Balsa is on a quest herself since she has promised that should save eight souls and she would not kill anyone in the process. She takes on the protection of Chagum as the last and eighth sou, with this she puts herself totally at risk and she will care for the boy, she takes the task with the intent to protect him at all costs. The reason they want the Prince dead is they think he is possessed by a water demon who will cause a drought in the Land of the Yogo Empire, when it turns out they are mistaken. Balsa doesn’t care what others will say, she will protect Chagum with her life and the with the help of her odd family. The animation itself is very well done with a fantastic story line, and your attention is always pulled into the development of Chagum. I recommend this to anyone who wants to watch an anime with a very good storyline.

    The story, superb animation and quality sceneries combined with the gorgeous sound track and excellent character development is what makes this series so appealing to me.

    Sadly, it isn’t receiving as much love as it should. Hardly anyone I know watches this series or cares to start since everyone is so infatuated with Bleach and Shippuden =[]=! I was happy when I found this here :D

    Tehe, please excuse this random visitor. I stumbled upon your blog while google-ing for some reviews.

    P.s.: Lol, stupid emote. ate my comment. I apologize for the double post m( _-_*)m

  4. Lillymon: No problem! I know exactly what you mean, this is one of the great animes of this time and it seems very few people are watching it when I know that its really good with a quality story and animation. Bleach and Shippuden are good, but there are other good stories that people are missing out on!

  5. Yes. I agree this is really good anime, the quality is amazing from character to production. Definitely worth watching.
