5.0 out of 5 stars Proper grown up anime, 29 April 2012

This review is from: Mushi-Shi - The Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I find it hard to describe why this is such a wonderful series but let's just say it was worth the £65 for my second hand copy. It very much reminds me of Kino's Journey in terms of tone and format (a series of fascinating self contained stories, connected only by its key protagonist).

Ginko is a Mushi Master, able to see and interact with supernatural creatures called Mushi, essentially a pure form of life existing all around but not generally known about until they cause a problem. Travelling from place to place, he studies them while trying to help those individuals inflicted . For example, one story includes a man made deaf by a snail like Mushi which feeds on sound and during hard times will sometimes abandon its own home to crawl up into the shell shaped cochlea of a person's ear. Another's intended bride has gradually disappeared into the Mushi world and in an attempt to bring her back, continues with the ceremony and with building a life for them both.

As with Kino's Journey, some stories end happily, some sadly and others just seem to sort of end. Either way, they are so beautifully told, I really didn't mind.
