Anime News Network is reporting that Media Blasters has acquired the license for Seirei No Moribito (a.k.a., Moribito – Guardian of the Spirit). The acquisition is notable because the title’s North American license was originally held by Geneon Entertainment, and was left in limbo along with many other titles after Geneon shut down North American operations in September 2007.

UPDATED March 28, 2008: On the AnimeOnDVD forums, CEO John Sirabella of Media Blasters has stated that Seirei No Moribito was licensed by Cartoon Network before it was licensed for DVD by Media Blasters (via Anime News Network).

Last pup of a dying planet, a young German Shepherd is rocketed to Earth, where he is bombarded by cosmic gamma rays emitted by a radioactive spider. Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu. Donning battle armor fashioned from spilled chemicals splashed by lightning, he becomes the Sensational Shield of Sequential Art ACE THE BATHOUND! Look, it sounds a lot better than the truth. Born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens at 3 and then New Jersey at 10. Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs. Shares the above with a beautiful, wonderful, and incredibly understanding wife named Frances (who, thankfully, participates in most of my silly hobbies) and a large furry dog named Brownie (who, sadly, does not).
