Seirei no Moribito - Possibly one of the most Underrated Anime
I'm at episode 7 or Seirei no Moribito...I can't believe people haven't been making a bigger deal about this anime. I guess its because its not quite so flashy. Its a little more subtle. In many ways, it seems more naturalistic and the story-telling reminds of series like Avatar the Last Airbender and Samurai 7. The animation is lovely, the fight scenes are nice, and the background painting is beautiful. It also has some interesting historical and magical allusions. A nice watch for sure. :) Although I think my favorite part, is how sensitively the characters are handled. It doesn't seem like their just recycled character types, they are more natural. They seem realistic and fleshed out. Off to watch some more!
