    I noticed there's no thread about this underhyped anime series? It's actually pretty good so far.

    This is the big new Production IG show this year, directed by Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex), with music by Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell) and L'Arc en Ciel. It's set to be a 26-episode series. The art and animation is really good.

    The story seems like a typical Chinese-style Mandate of Heaven legend in the tradition of Juuni Kokki, about a water spirit that comes to earth once a century to lay a magic egg in a chosen hero who becomes the Guardian of the Spirits. This time around the chosen one is the younger prince of the kingdom of New Yogo, Chagum. The Emperor of New Yogo doesn't care much for Chagum's rather unorthodox condition, though, and arranges an attempt on Chagum's life. The Vice-Queen (Chagum's mother) charges a spear-wielding female guard named Valsa to protect Chagum from the Emperor's assassins, as well as a succession of other-worldly creatures called Nayugu who begin attacking Chagum to eat his magic egg and consume his power.

    Cliffs: young prince has power, emperor wants him secretly killed by his assassins. the prince is being protected by hot badass bodyguard with spear. :naughty:

    It's got the look of Production I.G all over it.

    I was thinking it might be about her past memories. One of the spear guy might be her father, bodyguard or whatever. :dunno:
