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."

Empty heads and floating souls, love fades fast. Like the stars, ever present though unseen. When the desire to be human is less than the pull of the other, the wedding will have a groom but no bride.

A woman bearing the mark of generations, cursed to drown in a sea of written characters. The forbidden sealed away within her body. Where tales of death abound, compassion will flourish.

A monster that can mimic the human, the shapeless taking on the form of infancy. That which is beyond our understanding can quickly learn to understand us. Therein lies the danger.

Life's inevitable end, reduced to no more than a passing moment. Loved ones forever reborn. When the mother becomes daughter and daughter mother, what of the wisdom of life eternal?

Contains episodes 19-22!

Review This is my favourite anime at the moment...there's always something going on - usually a mystery or drama is unfolding - and the action frequently becomes spectacular. The artwork is beautiful, with bursts of intricate animation creating a sense of wonder, sometimes horror, of the other dimensions we're sharing space with...Each episode stands alone as a story, with little need to watch them in order. There are a few links, especially the recurring character of the collector. My favourite episode so far tells of Ginko's childhood and how he became a Mushishi - it's a fascinating episode with many new mushi...Mushishi is based on the manga of Yuki Urushibara, whose stories the episodes closely follow - there's a sample of his artwork on this page. But stories are running out, and the series looks set to end at 26 episodes. I can't get enough! To me it's unique and very different, very calming, very Japanese.
