Format: DVD
If you enjoyed the first volume of Mushi-Shi, then I wholeheartedly recommend that you buy this. This series continues to excel in every area, and for me it is the series of the year so far.
However, if you haven't seen the first volume or read my review, or you want to know a little more about why this volume is so good, read on!
Mushi-Shi is a very unique anime; it's slow-paced, thoughtful, and gentle to the viewer, with soft, peaceful colours and beautiful scenery that you feel you could wander into.
As with the first volume, there is no plot linking all the episodes- the only constant is the titular Mushi-Shi (Mushi Master) Ginko, who wanders around, solving Mushi-related problems. However, this is in the show's favour; each episode feels fresh and individual. You can just watch a random episode whenever you feel in the mood.
And as for episodes, there are five on this disc, as with volume one. However, future volumes will have four episodes per disc- still good value for money, and means that you get the whole series in six DVDs. I prefer this to some series which have been brought out in seven volumes, with the last two discs having only three episodes each. Mushi-Shi is simply better value, especially considering how brilliant the show is.
It would be very hard to choose the best thing about this series, as everything is done so well; art, music, plot, voice acting and that indescribable feeling of satisfaction. It's not for everyone, but if you're looking for a more relaxed, laid back show, you could do worse than this, and I doubt you could do better.

This is excellent viewing ... if you like your mecha and fighting it may be too slow for you... the storylines are gentle with sometimes sad results but compulsieve making you want to watch more ... the voice actors are first class and beautifully drawn ... I wont put up spoilers. The stories are of strange creatures called mushi which exsit in our realm mostly harmless they are life in it's purest form, sometimes their behaviour can affect humans with sometimes strange,spooky or even tragic results. Mushi masters are those who study and can sometimes control their effects. These are the stories of one masters wandering encounters with mushi.

This volume contains episodes 6 - 10.

The first volume acted as an introduction to Ginko the Mushi Master and the concept of Mushi - how these curious forms of 'pure life' can only be seen by a gifted few and can have a fantastical, sometimes devastating, effect on those they interact with. The formula of Ginko appearing in a village to witness strange phenomena and then resolve it after identifying the Mushi at the source of the problem continues.

It seemed that the series was falling into the common 'monster of the week' trap (only this time it's 'Mushi of the week'), but thankfully the last two episodes of this volume (9 and 10) seem more substantial and more mature in content. Episode 9 deals with questions around self sacrifice and Vulcans will recognise the 'needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few' philosophy which is explored here. Is the intentional death of one village member acceptable if it can save thousands? When is murder not murder? It's a thought provoking episode and the following one, though not as deep, is still a solid story.

There aren't any revelations about the enigmatic Ginko, but he takes centre stage more than before and simply by appearing more we become more familiar with him and understand his motives more. The stunning artwork we enjoyed in volume 1 is just as evident here. My personal favourite moment has the be the opening to episode 6 where the sun setting in the sky renders the landscape in various scales of lush purple.

In a nutshell: I was concerned that this was becoming too formulaic and dare I say it? Boring. *But* the final two episodes of this volume bring fresh life to the series and give the sense that something of a journey is developing.
