Synopsis

At a time when the balance of nature still held the civilizations of mankind in thrall, young prince Chagum has been accused of being possessed by an evil spirit: the water demon, which once perished at the hands of the emperor 100 years ago. This could possibly mean great misfortune. Not only for the Imperial family, but for the entire world as well.

Court advisors only see one solution. Chagum must be put to death by his own father's hand. His salvation is in the form of Balsa, a spear woman and mercenary from Kanbal, the kingdom across the mountains. Her skills are legendary, and although reluctant, she is held by a mysterious vow to save eight souls before she dies. Can she fend off an entire empire and make Chagum her eighth soul?

"I've sworn to never take another life."

Such a beautiful, emotional and relaxing view! A captivating depiction of love and family, framed in a fantasy/adventure story of destiny and reconciliation.
Seirei no Moribito is definitely overshadowed by more mainstream series and truly deserves much more attention. It is something worth a try regardless of your genre preferences, since it does almost everything right. World building, characters development, fights, dialogues; I don't think there's something to be disappointed with.

STORY (8/10)

It's not based on the most original premise out there but the way it's carried out and the developments it delivers makes it satisfying and worthwhile. It isn't complicated read more

Seriei no Moribito (or Guardian of the Sacred Spirit), is not your normal anime. It began life as the first in the ten volume Moribito series of fantasy novel written by Uehashi Nahoko, and although these novels were intended for children, they gained many adult fans. In fact, the novels proved to be so popular that they the first volume was adapted into a manga, an anime (directed by Kamiyama Kenji, who directed Ghost in the Shell SAC and 2nd Gig), and even a radio drama. The novel is also scheduled for release in english in mid 2008 because of the immense popularity of the read more

Recommendations

Both set in a mythical world. Each has its own intricate story line that actually follows sense, and politics. Great action scenes for both too (Seirei no Moribito has amazing ones). Check out the other if you've seen one, they're both highly entertaining and more 'mature' shows.

Both series are about young, sheltered children who are exposed to the outside world through their guardians.
