Moribito

on 6/7/2014

My first exposure to Moribito came from the short lived and turbulent run it had on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. It's not a show for everyone. It's a slow thoughtful series with beautiful art. Moribito is the type of short that's is heavy on story, you may have to watch it a second time for all the little elements to coalesce in your mind--especially if you've seen it the first time on Adult Swim which often times had audio problems. However,what little action scenes it does have is absolutely gorgeous and fast paced. Often times the choreography in an action series look a little sloppy with the overuse of squash and stretch or just plain lazy through the overuse of speed lines and hold frames. Here, the fight scenes are well thought to point of looking very similar to a dance, with spears of all things (usually the weapon of choice are swords in anime). I won't go into the details of story and characters as other reviewers have done so already. I will say if you like a rich story, excellent characterization, and a setting rich in its own lore then Moribito will be the show for you. Or, to put it simply, if you like The Twelve Kingdoms you would like this show. Generally, I don't go out and buy a series if I've seen it already however Moribito was so pleasing that I wanted to add it to my collection.
