Genre : Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Mystery, Psychological, Supernatural,

Plot : They are neither plants nor animals. They differ from other forms of life such as the micro-organisms and the fungi. Instead they resemble the primeval body of life and are generally known as "Mushi". Their existence and appearance are unknown to many and only a limited number of humans are aware of them. Ginko is a "Mushi-shi" who travels around to investigate and find out more about the "Mushi". In the process, he also lends a helping hand to people who face problems with supernatural occurrences which may be related to the "Mushi".

Our Review : Mushishi is an episodic anime comprised of 26 parts. Each episode stands alone from the rest and often the only common denominators in the stories are the presence of Ginko, the main character, and occasional appearances of his friend, Adashino-sensei. Mushishi is an extraordinary series. It was refreshing in that it was so serene to watch – the art is beautiful, the atmosphere is peaceful, and yet the series was able to create excellent tension when it was called for. The series moves in a slow gentle pace, where the music never gets too eager and nothing ever gets too exciting in manners of rush or panic. Most of the time you might feel sleepy as it got slow pace plot, but you will enjoy the whole series.

  2. Len, there are a handful of strieos in there where while I was watching it I thought one way and then when I thought about it some more I thought something different.radiantdreamer, it was the art style and character design that got me interested. In a way we think a little bit alike, since I often give a bit of weight to character design as well. We just went different ways in the same process.
