Mushishi!  Reply with quote  

Title: Mushishi
Number of Episodes: 26
Genre: Fantasy, Drama
Based on: manga by Urushibara Yuki.

My ratings: 5 out of 5

Brief Description:
The “Mushi” is neither a plant nor an animal; also, it isn’t a microbe or fungus. It is more like primitive life forms. Their figures and existence are very vague. We don’t notice their existence until we meet Mushi and they’ll show us mysterious phenomena. They do not exist to scare others; they just exist there as they are. This anime is one-shot stories of Ginko, the Mushishi, who knows about Mushi and mediate human being and Mushi. During his journey, he meet various people and Mushi. (info taken from Animenfo's website)

My review: I really recommend Mushishi to everyone Smile Especially those who want to watch something a bit different from the usual, shoujo or shounen stuff ^^ It's a very peaceful anime and yet intriguing... it's hard to describe, it's like either you like really like it or you really don't like it ^^;;;

C1 is currently fansubbing it ^^ *they are doing a great job on it!*

I LOVE Mushishi! I can't believe this series isn't more popular. Every episode is really tragic and poignant and the art is unbelievable! I think it won some major awards tying for Best Series of 2005 along with Best Art Direction. Everyone should watch this series! Smile

@mungoberry2000: I KNOW! I loved the manga when I first encountered and I totally love the anime XD Awesome fine-tuned anime-art! Resembles the manga a lot ^^

Yeah, I also can't believe it isn't more popular >___< Ah, really? Cool! Hahaha, yeah! Btw, do you know why Mushishi will be resuming at the end of May? I think C1 wrote a message about it being halted after ep 15 or so and that the rest will come out in May... just find it odd.

Re: Mushishi!  Reply with quote  

i actually don't know the real reason- i think it had something to do with ratings and the fact that so many new series were debuting in April. I think 20 episodes have been released so far by C1 - i'm just relieved that they plan to finish off the last 6 when they get broadcast. I need my Mushishi fix Smile

I like Mushishi too~ You can try reading the manga if you like manga better :p I've only seen the first episode of the anime and it follows the manga story pretty closely... not sure if it's any different in future episodes though.

Re: Mushishi!  Reply with quote  

Hmm, not too sure. There's not many manga chapters released yet so it's hard to compare and find that out... Still, so far, each episode has been good ^^ Especially that one that revealed Ginko's past! That was really fascinating, though sad~~ (wonder if that's from the manga?)

Anyway I noticed the raw for ep21 floating around not too long ago so I'm glad that it got resumed XD

Re: Mushishi!  Reply with quote  

YAY! Episode 21 was just released XD This episode was really freaky though o___0 The freakiest yet in my opinion... and a bit confusing...

Question to those who watched it: Did the root escape with the smoke? I dun really understand why the fire was necessarily for the Mushishi to protect its seeds? And at the end... what Ginko brought with him... was that simply the "form" of the children (and not the root?) though it ought to be part of the Mushishi as well, right? I mean what WOULD have been the real child was already killed to begin with... and that thing was still alive... GAH! I'm still all freaked out ^^;;;;

Also I wanna tear that stupid woman apart for daring to hurt our dear Ginko!! He's such a fantastic character~

5 more episodes to go... *sobs* I'm gonna miss this anime >____< They should make an episode for all chapters and upcoming ones~~

Re: Mushishi!  Reply with quote  

catching up and just saw ep 21! wow, that was so intense! the ending was reallyt confusing- i think the fire killed the main root but the offshoots (the kids) turn into these dormant seeds so that they are protected till its safe to emerge again. Ginko probably just scooped up one of them before it had a chance to turn into a seed. i thought it was sort of cute in the bottle Smile
it was a really sad episode though- the real child did die- it was eaten by the Mushi- the Mushi was just using the disguise of a human child for its little minions.


yeah, i'm really sad to see Mushishi go- its a beautiful show- maybe when the manga gets a little further - we may have enough for a second season? it would be totally doable too- there's no major storyline that will be interrupted.

Ah, so the fire did kill the root... and the "children" was supposed to turn into seeds that way? C-c-cute? I thought it was freaky FREAKY!! >____< *like part of a nightmare*

Yeah it was sad indeed... the poor parents really :S

I would LOVE a second season! And yeah that would definitely be doable XD *will cross fingers for that*

Mushishi OST! I gotta download that for sure ^^

Ep24 has been released not long ago... I haven't watched it yet, but is it just me or is the format much bigger than any of the previous eps? Just wondering if I got a wrong version or something @___@

2 more to go~~

"This world is full of life that humans don't know about"

And thus the Mushishi anime ends! It's been a great watch though ^^ I'll definitely get around to go through it again! I sure hope there'll be a season 2 in the future though Very Happy

I didn't notice that it got licensed and C1anime officially dropped it after ep25, but someone fansubbed ep26 and kept with the same sub standards ^^
