The storyline was fantastic. It captured my interest from the very first episode and continued to do so until the end. Each episode filled with excitement and anxiousness... I was anxious to see what would Balsa (the female bodyguard - main character) do next. It was exciting to see her fight off pursuers too.
Each characters were well written. They all have their pasts and their stories to tell, and their stories were told so swiftly, totally blended into the main storyline without feeling the scenes to be a filler. Well done! I don't expect anything less from the GITS:SAC director, Kenji Kamiyama.
The graphics were good too. I regretted not getting the Bluray because this series is a keeper for sure. The animation was smooth and beautiful. Thumb's up.
Overall, I absolutely loved and adored this series. I haven't felt such passion for an anime series for a long time (since Fullmetal Alchemist) and I am an avid anime fan. If you are too, don't hesitate on this DVD. You'll never regret buying this. I watched the entire 26 episodes in just 1 week and that says something about this series. :)
This first of two sets of episodes from the `Morbito: Guardian of the Spirit' anime contains thirteen episodes over two discs. The series is entertaining with a good plot and some interesting characters. The animation is good, the battles are also very well done and very entertaining to watch and the English dub is watchable. The series is very entertaining and while I probably wouldn't say it is one of my favourite series, it is definitely well worth watching and I will definitely get the next volume. Overall I feel that this first volume deserves somewhere between four and four and a half stars and I feel that the series only gets better.
