Movie Reviews

Beautifully humanistic and psychological drama
errorfound482 | Walla, walla Washington | 08/16/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've seen the entire series and I have to say this is one of the most beautifully written and soulful series out there (anime or non). Please note, this is NOT an action-packed anime although there is action from time-to-time. This isn't particularly a tear-jerker either, but there are stories of profound sadness. What it is, is a drama that lets itself take itself to develop the story.

The plot over the series is that Ginko - a Mushi-Shi (kinda' like a shaman or doctor specializing in supernatural ailments) travels Japan to investigate and solve people's problems. Each episode is an independent (but loosely continuous and connected) short story. Endings are often surprising and thoughtful.

Volume 1 covers the first 5 episodes.
EPISODE 1 - About an isolated boy whose writings and pictures come to life, but is haunted by a quiet ghost.

EPISODE 2 - About a girl with mushi-infected eyes locked away in total darkness and her cousin who comes to visit and play with her.

EPISODE 3 - An isolated snowfallen village is infected by mushi which eats up all noise. One child is infected so badly, he mysteriously grows horns like his mother.

EPISODE 4 - A man's dreams are infected by Mushi which gives him dreams of disasters to come (and avoid), but the dreams aren't the prophecies he thinks they are.

EPISODE 5 - Ginko finds a travelling swamp which disappears and reappears and a special woman looking to belong who becomes the swamp's companion."
Wow!

"Mushishi is the best anime I've seen in a long time. The animation is gorgeous and the music suits it perfectly. It was just very relaxing to watch for the most part. Each episode has a new set of characters and unique, folklore style stories, and I like the fact that each one can all stand on it's own, not even making it necessary to watch them in order.

I'm generally not concerned with collector's boxes, but I'm very glad I decided to get this one. It's one of the nicest starter sets I've ever seen. The design and artwork on the box and the cardboard sleeves are perfect."
