Storyline

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". Written by Anime News Network

A perfectly executed masterpiece.
9 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm about three episodes into Yuki Urushibara's masterpiece, "Mushishi" and I must say, its incredible. The show itself does not have much of a main plot, but focuses on each episodes individual story- an episodic format much like that of hit-TV series, "Supernatural."

The animation is completely stunning- its almost ethereal green colour pallet is captivating, and was what originally got my hooked. Packed with interesting characters, and a perfectly suited soundtrack that could lull anyone into a blissful sleep, Mushishi has proved itself to be very strong artistically.

But Mushishi is more than just your typical pretty looking anime combined with a nostalgia inspiring soundtrack, it actually has some really interesting content, and a creative idea. Despite the episodic nature of the show, I still find myself compelled to keep watching the next episode.

Mushishi has me hooked, even my girlfriend who is not exactly an anime fan, it thoroughly enjoying it. Its got a quirky style, but is pretty accessible to anyone, and I encourage anyone with Netflix to pick it up.
