lol its probably is.. and it was a series ...of 26 episode back in 2005

This anime has a slow pace but the story is different and the story telling style as well and interesting and the art is so beautiful. I have the dvd but I will buy the Bluray when they will rerelease it. I met the director for this twice, Nagahama sensei . And I got him to draw Ginko

The actor who did the voice of Ginko is not really a seiyuu by training, ( I checked him out back then because his reads are different ) which makes his delivery of his lines different . The ADR is not bad either. Travis is Ginko but he has more infliction compared to the original , I still like it.

The Live movie version was so so , the production was cheap ..., the special effects is pretty lame , it could have been better

I am happy that an OVA is made., I know there is a Japanese version , but I hope they rerelease it.

Can't wait to watch!

I've seen the series both in English and Japanese and love both voice tracks equally(one of the rare series to not have me prefer one over the other).

It is a slow, methodical serial series with each episode basically being stand alone yet also contributing to an overarching narrative bit by bit.

In a way, Mushishi is like a Japanese Doctor Who to me. Both are generally stand alone(I can pick and choose most DW episodes and they tend to stand alone just like this), both also have a mysterious traveling main character who looks out of place. The only real difference to me is DW can be comical at times and focuses on sci-fi and maybe some brief horror, whereas Mushishi is more grounded in fantasy and Japanese spirits and the tone is almost always somber

Jeez I love this series.

It has made my year so excited to see Ginko again and that soundtrack is God like. Excited for April as that is when we will see the second OvA. Who saw this coming? Also will Travis Willingham be reprising his role in the dubbed ver, does anyone know if dubbing is even going to happen?

That was beautiful, all 42 minutes. The dialogues, the mood, the characters, and another story to tell.

Can't wait for Spring.

I am so excited for APRIL! I watched the entire 26 episodes that were available on Netflix back two years ago in English, but I can't wait to watch the Japanese version now. The entire series is just amazing. It was slow and well-paced with aspects of the supernatural/sci-fi. I enjoyed the entire OVA just now. I like Ginko's voice actor in both English and Japanese, but for some reason the Japanese seiyuu really has a different feel to me than the English one. I can't wait~~

My birthday is this month, and I am claiming both this OVA and the new season news as my birthday presents!I Thank you Japan for the wonderful presents. <3

I'm literally crying with happiness right now. xD

Also did anyone else think that Hiyori sounded a little western (A westerner speaking Japanese)... it was mostly in the tone of her voice, but she didn't sound native Japanese to me. Not that I'm complaining, I thought she fit the role perfectly, it made Hiyori sound off.

I hadn't noticed at the time. This is her only entry on ANN (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=126048) so she probably just didn't have that high pitched voice that's associated with seiyuu performances.

I did not expect a new series, but it will be great to see the second half of the manga adapted, especially since the special did not disappoint.

I really hope funimation pick this up for dubs though, because the dubbing of the 1st series was great, Ginko really felt so much more humble and solemn
