From ANN. (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2008-10-22/i.g-to-animate-ju-no-soja-novels-from-moribito-author)
Based on novels by the author of Guardian of the Spirit? Sold.
Not an inspiring staff, however.

There's a small piece of character and background art now up at NHK's (http://www.nhk.or.jp/etv50/detail.html#5) website. Erin will be voiced by Nanase Hoshii, a 20 year old actress/singer/idol/whatever, in her first anime role - I have no idea whether she can actually act or not, but she seems to be a fairly veteran performer already and live action actors usually give interesting performances or at least raise the game of the actors around them.
Takayuki Goto's character design for Erin is extremely reminiscent of his work on the Production IG Popolocrois series back in the late 90s (not the TMS one from a few years back). Really not sure what to make of the staff etc. behind this show.
Kemono no Souja only has two novels, and there's not a lot of information out there on them although I have faith that they're excellent coming from Uehashi and the premise sounds interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing what this is like, at least.

First thing that popped to mind was Fantastic Children. She looks a lot younger than the plot summary suggested.
