Seirei No Moribito: Sai Shusho (NHK, Fall 2017 - Winter 2018) is the third and last installment of the live adaptation of Uehashi Naoko's "Moribito Series" light novels. In this final chapter, bodyguard Balsa (Ayase Haruka) and Crown Prince Chagum (Itagaki Muzuki) of New Yogo travel to the northern kingdom of Kambal, Balsa's place of birth. They will ask the current Kambal King Rogsam (Nakamura Shido) to join forces with Rota and New Yogo in thwarting the invasion of the powerful Talsh Empire, led by Prince Raul (Kora Kengo). Arriving there, the two meet various obstacles. Balsa also learns more about the past, especially the stories of her murdered father Karuna (Kamiki Yusuke) who was a victim of Rogsam's deceit and ambition, and that of Jiguro (Kikkawa Koji), her adoptive father, who helped her escape when she was small. They also uncover a strange ancient Kambal ritual: deep in the mountains, the King and his elite warriors, the Spears, will come to face the legendary Mountain King, and be put to an ultimate test...
Meanwhile, war is imminent in New Yogo. Balsa's friend, Tanda (Higashide Masahiro) goes off to join the war effort, and to risk his life, defending his country... Then, Asla (Suzuki Rio), the child who had a fearsome spirit god that dwelled inside her, foresees and warns the presence of another destructive force that's about to be unleashed on the land.

Notes:
Subs are available in Aegisubs format only. I will upload .srt versions but only after all the subs are done.
These are timed to raws uploaded by VampireXxX, arigato! There may be other HD raw versions by other uploader/s, however, I can only afford to time my subs to 480p by VampireXxX's

In the previous seasons, I wrote "Spear-Wielder" as a term for Balsa. But the Japanese script actually said, "Short-Spear Wielder", maybe as a way to differentiate her from the other Spear warriors, since hers is smaller and more suited to her height and fighting style. In this season, since she is now in Kambal where there are plenty of other Spear Wielders, I will start using the term, "Short-Spear Wielder" for Balsa.
I also have changed some spellings of words, based on how the actors pronounce it: "Aokiri Mountains" (which means "Blue Mist) has been changed to "Aogiri"; "Kanbal" to "Kambal", etc.

Update: I will time subs for 480p v2 raws which were encoded from 720 DoA raws which have much better quality. Thanks to VampireXxX once again!

Seirei no Moribito S2: Kanashiki Hakaishin (Winter 2017, NHK) is the second installment of the three part TV adaptation of Uehashi Naoko's Moribito Series. The setting takes place four years after the failed assassination attempt by the legendary female bodyguard Balsa (Ayase Haruka) against the King of Kambal, Rogsam (Nakamura Shido). Balsa is in the Rota Kingdom, keeping a low profile as a fugitive. In a port town, she reunites with her childhood friend and shaman, Tanda (Higashide Masahiro). She spots two children, Asla (Suzuki Rio) and her older brother Chikisa (Fukuyama Kohei) being sold by a gang of slave traders. Then a horrific massacre happens, killing the slave traders in an instant, but leaving the children unscathed. Balsa and Tanda rescue and take in the children. They sense that something dwells inside Asla, a kind of sinister spirit that may have caused the massacre. However, for Asla, the spirit is a powerful and destructive god that her people, the Talu tribe worships. Watching their movements are a shaman from Rota, Sfal (Emoto Akira), and his daughter Shihana (Maki Yoko). They are tasked by the king of Rota to find Asla, and to stop the god of Talu from resurrecting... Meanwhile across the sea, the islands of Sangal Kingdom are under attack by the Talsh Empire from the southern continent. They plead with the Emperor of New Yogo (Fujiwara Tatsuya) for reinforcements. Fifteen year old Crown Prince Chagum (Itagaki Muzuki) suggests to form an alliance with the Rota and Kambal Kingdoms in order to help thwart the looming presence of the Talsh Empire. However, instead of heeding his suggestion, his father orders him to go to Sangal and take care of the matter himself...

Seirei No Moribito Season 1 (Spring 2016, NHK) is based on Uehashi Naoko's 1996 novel of the same title, the first of a series called "The Moribito Series". It stars Ayase Haruka as Balsa, the female bodyguard for hire, who is skilled in the art of combat, especially with the use of a spear. While traveling in Kosenkyo, the capital of the kingdom of New Yogo, she saves a boy who fell in a raging river. This boy happens to be Prince Chagum (Kobayashi Kai), the second son of the Emperor of New Yogo (Fujiwara Tatsuya). Balsa was later on hired by the prince's mother, the Second Empress (Kimura Fumino), to protect her son. The Empress says Chagum bears an evil spirit inside of him, and because of that, the Emperor wants him dead. Balsa accepts the role of Chagum's bodyguard, and escapes with him. They fled the city in search of Tanda (Higashide Masahiro), Balsa's childhood friend, and Torogai (Takashima Reiko), a shaman from the indigenous tribe of Yaku. She believes Tanda and Torogai will help shed light on the mysterious spirit that is inside Chagum... Meanwhile, at the Palace, there is also another person who wants to get to the bottom of the so-called demon that is inside the Prince. He is the star reading expert named Shuga (Hayashi Kento)... Meanwhile, the Emperor sends his assassins, known as the Hunters to pursue and kill the Prince and Balsa...

Sorry if it took so long to post this. But finally here are the notes for NHK's live action 2016 drama, Seirei no Moribito (Season 1). Basically most of these are additional information and details from the novel, that are not mentioned in in the live-action adaptation. I will not discuss about the anime, since I have not watched it. So far, I have only read the first book (wonderful English translation by Cathy Hirano), and read the synopses of the rest (there are nine books in the series), so my knowledge is still very limited.


Moribito Series. There are nine books (published 1996-2007 under Kaiseisha and Shinchosha) overall, which also includes short stories that offer sneak look into the past of Balsa and Tanda. The first book had been made into a manga and anime.
