Otaku Evolution Episode 134 - Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit

Topics: 

I've been trying to get a review of Moribito done for a while, but every test video I did had difficulty with the copyright dragons (as this may still). You know, there's a lot of anime I have in my personal collection that I would love to review, but I don't think I'd be able to get away with using my usual methods. I try to shave down clips and edit tighter, and I've probably gotten a little better at it over time, but you never really know when some overzealous European licensor or strict music company is going to clamp down on your videos. I mean, I get it, you want to protect your IP and/or streaming rights, but I'm not exactly posting whole movies or episodes here, these are reviews that fall under Fair Use.

 

But shhhh... if I talk about it too much, the copyright dragons will stir from their slumber.

 

Moribito is a great, underrated anime that I foolishly ignored the first time Adult Swim broadcasted it, but got into after it reaired in its entirety. I think it didn't make a big splash on the block because it was quieter, more contemplative, and slower paced than some of the more successful titles. I mean, it's not like it was some complex treatise on the human condition or anything, but it was challenging to people who only tuned in for action shows. You ought to go buy it on Blu-Ray (I still have my DVD set).
