* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PTvHNIddsA The OP]] alone is enough to convey [[TheEpic just how epic]] the series is going to be and it delivers. Big time.
* While fight scenes in ''Moribito'' are few and far between, they're well worth the wait as they're well choreographed, beautifully animated, action-packed affairs. The quality and production values speak for themselves in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=al1CpCfSEHo this compilation video.]]
** What makes it even better is, it starts with [[spoiler: Balsa's mentor, Jiguro]], then segues into the fights Balsa has, years later. It allows you to see where she got it from and just how well she learned from him.
* From episode 11: the scene where Tanda [[spoiler: crosses over into [[SpiritWorld Nayug]]]] seen, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHKfjkC5aSM here (4:47-6:28).]]
** After successfully [[spoiler: [[AstralProjection leading Saya back to her body]]]], Tanda notices sunlight filtering through the wall and becomes curious... and quite literally stumbles into [[spoiler: the SpiritWorld! The sight that unfolds before his eyes is nothing short of amazing]].
* In Episode 3, Jin decides to [[WouldHurtAChild kill Chagum himself]] to spare the Mikado the pain of having to kill his own son. Just as he's about to do the deed, [[{{Badass}} Balsa]] comes sprinting out of the woods straight towards him, screaming a wordless cry. She throws a pair of knives, then the broken shaft of her spear, all of which he deflects easily...until she seizes a rock from the ground and ''[[CombatPragmatist decks]]'' [[CombatPragmatist him with it, knocking him out cold.]] What makes this even more impressive is the fact that she was heavily fatigued and badly wounded from the previous fight. It's also her first true MamaBear moment.
