Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit, Part 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

You'd probably never guess Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit is an interlaced presentation considering the beauty of its AVC encoded (1080i) transfer in 1.78:1, and the good news is there is nary a combing artifact to be found in this extremely fluid and filmic presentation. Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit contains some of the finest animation in recent anime, with extremely well detailed character designs and exceptionally rendered backgrounds, and they all look splendid on this Blu-ray. Line detail is exceptional throughout, and the minimal digital elements blend perfectly with the traditionally animated fare. While the storytelling in this series can be langorous, there's always a wealth of splendor to take in in virtually every episode, and the best thing about the series is the impeccable attention to the very smallest details, like dust mites glinting in the sun or gradations of light as sun streams through thatched huts. This is one extremely nice looking anime series and its Blu-ray debut sparkles appropriately.


Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit, Part 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Both the original Japanese language track as well as an unusually well done English dub are presented in two lossless offerings, DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 stereo mixes and nicely immersive DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mixes. While dialogue in the surround mixes is routinely mixed forward, we do get occasional directionality. Late in this set's episodes, to give just one example, when Balsa is attempting to save two travelers being threatened by an old rival of hers, voices ping pong nicely from rear to front channels as the two attempt to regain control of a horse the rival has shot with stone. The most immersive elements in this series are the finely detailed ambient environmental noises which populate virtually every episode with a wealth of pleasant and soothing sounds like rustling leaves, running water and the sounds of birdsong. The series is also not shy about utilizing LFE, both in terms of underscore and some nice rattle-worthy sound effects which up the sonic activity in several action sequences. Dialogue is very clear and well prioritized and the voice work in the English dub is especially well handled.
