  • I'm liking this so far.

    The pilot episode of Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit definitely doesn't feed around the bush, taking time to introduce characters, explain their backgrounds, and add in what their lives are currently like. As far as I've seen, it's pretty rare for a pilot episode of an anime to do that, but I actually like it better that way- it keeps me interested. I love Balsa- she's pushing 30 and is one of those anime characters that is independent, strong, and dominant; much like one of my favorite anime characters Cornelia from Code Geass. I look forward to watching more of this.
