A fascinating series, and worth my time

on 8/8/2008

I really enjoyed this first disc. This is a well realized world with believable characters in extraordinary situations. The art is beautiful and the chara designs attractive, yet simple. It feels like a period piece and modern all at once. The dub is very well cast and the acting appropriate. This makes watching the English version just as fascinating as the Japanese track. The mysterious and almost dangerous feel that permeates this title makes it worth watching. The care taken on creating it is evident and every dollar is on the screen. The atmospheric and special effects are particularly notable. The stories definitely forced me to ask myself questions. From a metaphysical position, the ideas are worth pondering in various cases, and in others, just good entertaining fantasy. The extras are good because the Director of the series is so amusing. He has a sense of humor and presents well. However aside from a studio tour, it really is just a series of typical anime table interviews. For me, these would have been more effective as a running commentary over the show. Visually, two guys answering questions in front of a poster, while informative, takes away from the content even when the banter is fun. Overall Mushishi is a good addition to my library and I plan on continuing to invest in this series. If you enjoy the wonder of life and witnessing nature... If you feel the world is a mysterious place to be experienced, this show may hold something new to explore.

Product Overview

Neither good nor evil, they are life in its purest form. Vulgar and strange, they have inspired fear in humans since the dawn of time and have, over the ages, come to be known as "mushi." The stories of the Mushi and the people they effect are all linked together by a traveling Mushi-shi, or "Mushi Master," who seeks rare Mushi sightings and uses his shaman-like knowledge of Mushi to help the effected people. What are the Mushi and what do they want?

Contains episodes 1-5!
