Available on Crunchyroll. Watch it here: Mushi-shi


Synopsis

“Mushi”: the most basic forms of life in the world. They exist without any goals or purposes aside from simply “being.” They are beyond the shackles of the words “good” and “evil”. Mushi can exist in countless forms and are capable of mimicking things from the natural world such as plants, diseases, and even phenomena like rainbows.

This is, however, just a vague definition of these entities that inhabit the vibrant world of Mushishi, as to even call them a form of life would be an oversimplification. Detailed information on Mushi is scarce because the majority of humans are unaware of their existence.

So what are Mushi and why do they exist? This is the question that a “Mushi-shi”, Ginko, ponders constantly. Mushi-shi are those who research Mushi in hopes of understanding their place in the world’s hierarchy of life.

Ginko relentlessly chases rumors of occurrences that could be tied to Mushi, all for the sake of finding an answer.

It could, after all, lead to the meaning of life itself…

Agreed, out of all the series coming out this spring, this one is my most anticipated series as well.

Really hoping CR will get this. Judging how they got the special, I'm going to guess they can get this one too

Not really. Mushi-Shi has one of the loosest continuities ever. There's like literally only two recurring characters in the first season, the protagonist Ginko and a doctor friend of his(and he only appears in a couple of episodes). It's an eposodic series. Unless they suddenly change that, you should be able to just jump right in. Maybe watch the special/movie from earlier this year(it should still be on CR, right?) just to get your feet wet with the style, theming, and structure of the series. But beyond that you should be good to go as is.

That said it is still totally worth watching the first season, cause like I said earlier in this thread, it's one of my Top 10. And I actually suggest watching the first season dubbed, cause I honestly do prefer Travis Willingham as Ginko's voice.

I love the dub as well. Travis did an awesome job!

Btw just checked amazon and season 1 is still really cheap to buy!

Agreed about being able to drop into the show with most recent OVA that is already listed on CR. The only thing that might deter someone from watching is the pacing. That's part of the charm IMO but that is something to consider. If someone can't sit through the OVA then they won't like the series.

I'm excited that the original cast and crew is back for Season 2. I'm hopeful that the "feel" of the show that I loved will be there. The OVA didn't disappoint. I'm stoked for Friday!
