Viz Media has revealed that they are planning on releasing the entirety of the Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit anime series in one collection that will be available for purchase for both Blu-ray and DVD starting on August 26th.
Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit originally aired back in 2007 and was animated by Production I.G. and it was even given a Western release at one point by the now nearly defunct Media Blasters. If the name sounds familiar it is also due to the series spending some time on Toonami back in 2009, though even then the airing of the anime was interrupted often.
As such this is a good chance to pick up the full twenty six episode series in one collection on Blu-ray for $54.97 or on DVD for $44.82. The story of the series is described by Viz as follows:
