"Despite the large number of anime series that are produced in Japan every year, only in recent years have many of them been released in North America and still today, even fewer actually appear on standard television. That is why back when Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit debuted back in 2008, it was a pleasant surprise to see grace English channels. However due Toonami’s ill future at the time, the series suffered from poor planning and air times. Years later Viz Media has now released the entire series on Blu-ray, but is it worth picking up? Let’s find out."
