I agree totally with what ashura said, about the beautiful landscape eventhough there aren't any fighting/action scenes. looks like Balsa's past is quite a sad one.

I've been wondering and waiting to hear about Balsa's past. Only a few snippets were revealed. Finally and we'll also get some action next episode.

Decent ep. I kept thinking that chagum was going to vomit or something while gutting the fish/deer. I thought for sure he was going to be like, "THIS IS WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN TO ME ISN"T IT?! AHHHH!"

Hehe.

It still amazes me how this anime shows slice's of the characters daily life in a slow pacing, and it never fells boring. On the contrary.
I liked the episode, and since I like seeing backstories I can't wait to see Balsa's.

Great episode, I need to know more about balsa's past.

The episode was again intriguing, its a shame though that the hunters did all that tracking and weren't able to wield their claws.

The scene when Balsa, Chagum and the girl returned to the village was brilliant. They managed to convey so much without any of the characters saying anything.

Such an anime.

Also, I didn't really notice until a couple episodes ago, is the egg shown just before the break taking on a more definitive shape each episode?

How did you get Moribito Volume 6 (Episodes 18-20) 2 days before the street release date?

Gyah, I both loved and hated this episode! XD

I hated it because they were FINALLY going to tell us Balsa's backstory from her own perspective with far more detail as to WHY she was almost killed and then the episode ends. The next one better continue where this one left off or I'm going to be really pissed.

I loved it for lots of reasons. It's so calm and sedate for most of the episode and yet it never bored me. Balsa was still rough with Chagum, but at this point I think it's what he needs. He needs to know that he's contributing to their survival. Needs to stay too busy to dwell on thoughts of his death... And like her mentor, Balsa becomes gentle when she needs to out of concern for his wounds. :P She's really trying to be a good mother as best she knows how.

Second part I loved - Torogai talked down Shuga and the hunters and made them go back to finish deciphering the epitaphs... IT'S ABOUT FREAKIN' TIME! Man that has been making me mad. Shuga kept reading pieces and then trying to act on it without having the whole story. Everything that has gone wrong on the palace's end of the spectrum can be traced back to the arrogant star readers not actually knowing truth despite the fact that it's been under their feet the entire time.

Oh and I liked how he went to Gakai and begged for his help. I still don't like Gakai very much - he was a bit too full of himself... obsessed with his power and position (as can still be seen by his comments to Shuga about their level) and yet Shuga humbles himself to ask for help in an area that he has proven to be decidely lacking. (Hurray for Torogai's tongue-lashing - You had something that important and you haven't read it all? Idiots XD) It'll be nice to see Sagum's wish fulfilled and Gakai working side by side with Shuga.

(and I meant to mention it in the last episode discussion, but Torogai and the others needn't worry about the Nahji who will carry the egg away after Rarunga rips it from Chagum - isn't the bird that Sagum nurtured a Nahji? Somehow I doubt it's a coincidence that such a rare bird wound up staying so near the Guardian when it could have flown away at any time.)

Oh and the bit with the girl was well done - not a word spoken with they returned to the village, but the animation still told a pretty detailed story. Nice. And another nod to the art because of the scenery. Absolutely beautiful. The fall leaves, the dusting of snow, and such a cool place to live! I love the Hunter's Hole. ^_^

man, I both love and hate the fact that there are only 6 eps left. I want some resolution to Chagum's story, but I'm afraid that Balsa is going to die saving him... and if she doesn't and he lives, then we'll still have to deal with the sadness of her giving him back to Shin-Yogo. They do need their prince afterall and his parents will definitely want him back. I know he'll be happy and it's what will be best for their nation, but I want Balsa to have a family! It sucks to be all alone.

Interesting episode

Lot of nice landscape shots and Hunter's Cave is neat little hideaway. Show is pretty keen with the details. Makes me want to check the book

Looking forward to finding out about Jiguro.

Was that a big lie?? so a battle wouldn't occur for awhile until the day of celebration

The art and animation was amazing, I like how they prepare for winter - hunting, fishing, gathering foods.

Now, Jigoru will be next topic
Live well - Laugh often - and Love much

This show never disappoints. Yet another excellent episode.

Gorgeous landscape shots indeed, and lovely animation... and yes, like everyone has said, despite the fact that there is very little action, it never gets boring. Probably because there's always progression in the story...

And Torogai is awesome still. :D Heh. Wanted to cheer her on when she was lecturing the hunters and Shuga, haha.

Agreed! I was impressed. Successful use of only visuals to convey what was happening.

I am glad Chagum and Balsa are getting along better now. I love how the Madam Torogai shoos Shuga off.
Even when I was in crowd, I was always alone
