Aorii on Moribito

December 26th, 2010 by Author

An unnecessarily spoiling review at Major Arcana finds deficiencies:

[..] what comes out is a vividly imaginative fantasy adventure that falls only one aspect short of ‘epic’.

[..] In the end, what I felt Seirei no Moribito lacked was scale. It failed to expand the scope after the initial focus to bring its characters life, and as a result it limited, if not completely downplayed, the impact of its climactic buildup and final resolution.

Personally I don’t think a failure to expand was even there, but here it is. The hive mind struggles to define what it was that Moribito lacked for success, which it clearly had in sights.

P.S. The climax was certainly climatic though… It dealt with climate.
