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.
