Synopsis:

In the feudal kingdom of Yogo, a dark secret is threatening its proud imperial family, and the Emperor intends to destroy it before it leaks out. Unfortunately this dark secret resides within his son, the young and innocent Second Prince Chagum. Enter Balsa, a wandering warrior who has sworn to save eight lives in penance for those she has taken during her violent career. Upon accepting her role as protector to Chagum, her eighth and final job, the two begin a perilous journey that tests not only their physical endurance and mental resolve, but also the tentative relationship they build along the way. Will Balsa fulfill her penance and protect Chagum as he seeks to understand the nature of his secret? Or will the Emperor's relentless assassins and other powerful enemies get them first?

Your stories center around your hero/heroin that share so many features. They refuse to kill in order to save the people they are protecting. They feel as if they must repent for past deeds that was out of their control.

The plots are well thought out, and the music is very adequate to the mood the stories have to tell.

I do agree that both animes are vastly different in plot lines, but very similiar in the aspect how raising a child has affected their lives.  

Usagi was more feel good - wholesomeness with slice of life appeal, where Seirei has the mystery element with action packed fight sequences.

Although the series have a different setting, one being in the Japanese/China middle ages (Seirei no Moribito) and the other in modern times, the characters and their relationships are very similar. Both Series have a healthy dose of action, but focus a lot on character development and relationships. Especially the relationship between parent and child. If you don't mind the different setting and like character development these two series have more than enough similarities to ensure that if you liked one, you will like the other.
