Tag "seirei no moribito"

I think I have discerned a particular theme that I certainly enjoy watching and I’m hoping that there would be more shows like this in the future. I’ve come to realize this only after watching the recent movie of FMA and it made me remember my rewatch of Seirei no Moribito last year. Well that was random wasn’t it?

BalsaYeah right, as if I’m a bibliophile. But I’m not. But I feel good when I’m surrounded by books. I’m not so much into reading books though. As far as I know I can count the books I have finished reading in my hands XD. BUT! If its fiction and anime-related I think(yes, I’m very motivated) I can read and finish it.

Moribito series were first published as literature materials for the children because it is a great example of book that could drag you in the flow of the story. The thing is, the story itself is just too fantastic for the kids, it had many adult fans so I guess this can be put to the category “I’m so lazy to read it so please turn it to an anime”. Geez, even I admits that it is boring to read books especially when they are way too predictable. Well, I guess  this one is different. It falls under historical fantasy. It maybe fiction, but the author’s brilliant ideas makes it as if it really happened. The parallel universe concept of the story also intrigues me a lot because I rarely see stories that uses it because it’s way toooo fiction so I think I’ll recognize it for that.

It also very enjoyable because Balsa embarks on a journey. Journey/Adventure animes are always whimsical because you don’t know what happens next. I grew to like InuYasha(even though it has many episodes) because of its adventure as well. Balsa is same in that way but also different. She didn’t embark on a journey to battle ugly monsters just to defeat the wicked boss at the end(I’m referring to Naraku). Because it is historical fantasy, there are overflowing ideas of the author that is shown in the story. I don’t even know if it is true or not(or do I even care). I just love how the story goes.
