  • Definitely a must-watch!
    Do you like shows with historical, fantasy settings, and have a mystery style plot with a compelling search for answers? How about with awesome and interesting characters that really make you care about them? In my opinion, Moribito Guardian of the Spirit fulfills all of these beautifully. The alternate universe setting is both intriguing and beautiful, while being somewhat based on eastern ...

  • Strong female lead!!!!
    Definitely one of my favorite animes. Mostly because of the strong female lead that goes against the poorly written and often over sexualized "action" animes that we have floating around. Great action, pretty decent story line, no fan service besides them making a wonderful show.

  • Unique and Well Thought-Out
    After getting tired of watching various anime with similar plots and twists, Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit really made me pause and think, "This is the world of anime, where amazing novels can be shown to us on screen."

    This is definitely is a must watch series that will tug at your heart as well as keep you entertained throughout.

  • Very reminiscent of old Samurai flicks
    This series is well balanced. To me this seems more like an epic movie. It is more focused on the sword play while the aspects of magic and spells are there it doesn't over shadow the action. The episodes progress slowly but with enough character building and great plot its well worth waiting for the episodes at the very last. That's why I compare it to an old Samurai click cause if you just wait ...

  • Beautiful and great story line
    Moribito is beautiful in both it's animation and it's story. I highly recommend it to anyone. It's got a god mix of action as well as a look at what traditional life was. Overall I loved it!! Take a look and you won't regret it.

    Interesting view of old Japan with twist
    If you enjoy Anime shows that portray the more traditional Japan with a twist you will love this. The animation is beautiful and the characters are interesting and easy to get attached to. There isn't a large number of episodes either so viewers that prefer shorter animes like myself will also enjoy this.

    exelent writing deep chars
    with excellent character development and great writing i really enjoined this series. at first, it is difficult to understand the world and that it is not earth, not to mention how the kingdom works - but it is explained in time and its cool how the ideas unfold to explain all the things that are not fully understood right off the bat. it does start out fairly slow but the plot development is ...

    An exceptional anime among a sea of mediocrity...
    This seemed like a very boring anime when I first started watching it. I quickly renounced that statement as I got further into the story and became engrossed in it. Moribito isnt what you would call an overly flashy or dramatic like the standard seems to be these days. It blends story and action very well but manages to maintain a tasteful and mature demeanor the entire time. This anime does what ...
