I got a catch up to this show.

In case someone did not know that episode 22 has been subbed.

Spoiler for Episode 22 Comments (subbed):


Few people might realize that, they already showed us the New Yateka (sp?) people's version of that song in episode 1:

♪ Come, come, Nahji ♪
♪ Come, come, Nahji ♪
♪ Become a black cloud ♪
♪ and come flying from the northern mountains ♪


This series continue to "play" like a novel. The authors are in no hurry and are taking their time building character. And of course, thanks for Anime-Kraze for doing a kick ass job. Thanks guys.

One more episode to go, and it already feels like everyone is saying goodbye.

Hmm, saw the episode and I have to confess that I have completely failed to share this sense of disappointment all of you describe.

Depending on the last episode, there might be, and in my opinion there should be, a second season. Seirei no Moribito is basically the first novel of the Moribito Shirizu series. There are, including Seirei no Moribito, 10 volumes in total. I am sure that most of the people here already know that. However, since Seirei no Moribito was not tremendously popular, compared to Haruhi for example, the chance of a second season, is not as good as we all might hope. This is most likely due to the fact that Seirei no Moribito belongs in the 'fine art' category, and it require its viewers to possess a certain level of artistic appreciation. If you simply compare the grammar of the average post in this thread to the naruto thread for example, you will know what I am talking about.

Spoiler for Possible Second Season:

Is there any link with screencaps to compare the DVD version with the current TV version?

You mean: Daddy teaches daughter how to fight. Don't forget the most important point in this gender reversal theory: Chagum is pregnant.

Another fine morning of having breakfast with Balsa....

Ep. 23 has to be the most gorgeous release in some time. I guess the animators were as happy to be out of that claustrophobic cave as our heroes.

I'm always struck by what a remarkable job I.G. has been doing with scenes that include water (fitting, I suppose, given the story). I knew I would be following this series as soon as I saw the rice paddies in ep. 1. In 23, we have the lovely sequence alongside the brook at about 8:30. Most animation of running water looks unconvincing but not here. They have the ripples, the reflections; it's all there. When Chagum dips his hand into the water, it's almost photo-realistic. Soon thereafter there's a brief pan across the lake with the water lilies. This could have been just a throw-away shot, or not included at all, but no, we have the reflected sky and clouds scattered in with the lily pads.

A few other random observations:

The play of light and shadow on the characters' faces has also caught my attention throughout this show. In this episode it was especially striking in the scene where the four of them are walking to the lake.

The sound track was also impressive in this episode, especially the scene where the soldiers shout their acceptance of the order to move out, and the rattling of their spears. It certainly does sound like hundreds of men, even though it's probably just a few Foley artists and a lot of looping.

Balsa always seems to refer to Chagum as "Chaguma" on the audio track. With so many other names ending in "a," including his brother's, perhaps that's his real name?
