Mushishi Zoku Shou

I knew there was going to be a second season someday. Mushishi was the talk of the year 2005. Everyone was surprised and couldn’t stop watching it. Of course, things were different back then. You didn’t have as many fun sub groups during those days as you have now. Thank god for progress…

Mushishi Zoku ShouThe key to Mushishi is great, detailed artwork and a good story. The artwork just draws you in. I could recognize the main character from a fifty character line-up, no problem. The “Mushi” are as good as you could expect and the sceneries are all so incredibly detailed and beautiful to see. Truly one of Japan’s masterpieces.

The story really goes well with the artwork. It’s mysterious, interesting and quite adventurous. You just don’t want to stop watching. I could watch this all day long if it were up to me. Ginko’s journeys simply never get boring.

I truly recommend this. Watch the first season if you haven’t already before watching this one. It’s not often that you get to see one of those classic-type anime these days, especially one as good as Mushishi. Spring is looking good this year!

Plot Summary: Mushi; the life-blood of nature. They exist everywhere in various forms: micro-organisms, fungi, bodies of water. Sometimes, they’re even mistaken to be plants, animals, or spirits. But regardless of their appearance, they exist, nonetheless, living they only way they know how. At times, their actions can cause strange or unexplainable phenomena. Enter Ginko, the Mushishi (mushi master), as he continues encountering, studying, and dealing with the mysterious mushi along his journey into the unknown.
