    Quite possibly the best anime ever.
    Mushi-shi was one of the first animes I ever watched, and it definitely got me hooked.
    The art is fantastic, and the music and settings all complimented each-other very nicely.

    Not your ordinary anime
    Mushishi is just as whimsical as Hayao Miyazaki's Totoro and Spirited Away, but a lot more mature. The anime is like a mix between Kino's Journey and xxxHolic. You follow one character through his various missions, which unravel dark and beautiful tales. The plot builds suspense and wonder in a very believable world, where spirits and humans coexist. It's hard to describe how good this anime is. ...

    It is a gentle and sweet anime
    It has been a little while since I have seen this. Maybe 2 years, but the lasting impression was that it was very good and gentle. The kind of program you would want to watch when life has made you feel a bit sensitive to all the turmoil in the world.

Before watching this, I recommend watching the original series, as many characters are ones that Ginko has treated in the original series. I have provided a link at the bottom of the review where you can watch the series with official subtitles.

    It's no joke to say that Mushisi is a masterpiece. However, it doesn't really ...

    Good Story for Mushi-shi Fans
    This is an OVA - it should not be the first thing you watch in the Mushi-shi franchise. There's no explanation of what "mushi" are, and that may confuse you if you're not familiar with the story. Check out the manga, or the first series (via Hulu, if you're in North America), then head back here.

    Mushi-shi is a quiet series that tends to slip under people's radar because it's very quiet ...

    the beauty is so intense
    This anime is so infectiously beautiful, I worry that it has cause a Mushi infection in my own eyes. This is the sort of series that can easily be used to spread the addiction of anime. The art is amazing, the story well told. Yet it is like any good storytelling, the events and phenomena that drive the story are not all that is in the story. The characters are real and dimensional, their ...

    Eerily beautiful art and story.
    Extremely captivating anime with a beautiful story. It has wonderful art and soundtrack to match. Each episode tells a different eerie, and sometimes tragic tale. With realistic characters and an outstandingly deep plot, this anime is one of my favorites.

    Everyone will love Mushi-shi!
    I love this anime, even the Dubbed version! Even friends and family who don't like anime like this one. It's a fantastic story and journey. It's like exploring the mysteries of the world from a whole new perspective. I've been watching anime for the past 20 years, I highly recommend watching this one!!!
