Cartoon Network's Adult Swim television network will premiere the Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit (Seirei no Moribito) anime series tonight at 1:30 a.m. and 4:30 ET/PT in the United States. The series adapts Nahoko Uehashi's intricately detailed fantasy novel about a spearwoman who protects a prince from his own father and other enemies. The North American publisher Scholastic published the novel in English in early June. The television release was arranged before Media Blasters acquired the home video distribution rights from Geneon Entertainment. The anime features Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex director Kenji Kamiyama and music composer Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell, Death Note, and Ringu films).
On America's Sci Fi Channel, both the Gurren Lagann and Now and Then, Here and There anime series will take the next two weeks off. In their places, the channel's Ani-Monday programming block will run the Read or Die video miniseries on August 25 and the Street Fighter Alpha movie on September 1.
