This review is from: Moribito Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Despite having fond memories of Monkey as a child, I wasn't actually sure I was going to enjoy this sort of thing. However, having seen how amazing the artwork was on the trailer, thought I'd give this a go and I'm really glad I did. In fact, this has been my fastest watch so far.

It tells the story of a young woman, very handy with her weaponry and on a mission to save eight lives as atonement for her own past. One day, she finds herself coming to the rescue of a young prince who has become considered cursed and consequently at grave danger from his own father. Entrusted by the boy's mother, Balsa takes on the role of bodyguard, fakes their deaths and goes on the run with the prince.

This story is as much about the life she establishes for them among the common people, with any battle scenes fitting perfectly in tune with the plotline as she battles to save her eighth and final charge. I also like how it wraps things up at the end i.e. unrushed and satisfying.
