This is the Anime-online deal of the week; unfortunately it's not a complete set so is not such a good deal as some lately.

You can pick up the part 1 discs for £8.85 from Zavvi / the hut.

Despite that this is a great anime and well worth adding to your collection.

The blurb:

"Balsa the spearwoman is a wandering warrior, who takes on the task of saving lives, in atonement for a past sin. On her journey, she happens to save a prince, and is tasked with becoming his bodyguard. And he is going to need one, for his own father, the emperor, wants him dead."

Note: I panicked that this set was in actually in 4 parts and not two; Anime On Line show the running times for the part 1 and 2 sets as 175 and 150 minutes that is clearly wrong as other retailers state each set has 13 episodes.

Beat me to it ;-).

This is supposed to be very good. Shame they haven't got pt 1 on offer too, maybe next week?

This is one of my favourite anime; it's not the best animation, story or characters, (but they are all very good), and for me it really comes together as a satisfying whole. There aren't any 'filler' episodes. The English dub is pretty good too; all the lead characters are well-voiced.

OK - I panicked for a while thinking I'd got it wrong and this was actually released on 8 DVDs (4 sets) like the Region 1 set.

Anime on-line don't give the number of episodes just a running time (which is wrong); I checked out other retailers and this series if definitely just the Part 1 and Part 2 sets with 13 episodes in each.

Naw, I think we'll give folks a break this week. I wouldn't wish that show on anyone, even at £9.99.
