Hello occasional followers!
Today, I shall tell you about an anime I discovered some years ago, called Mushishi.
In this world, the world is filled by little, insect-like, eerie elemental entities called Mushi. Several subspecies of Mushi exist, and each of them has a special way to interact with reality : some give life to dreams, others strongly affect your senses… However, because of their nature and properties, such organisms often create trouble with humans. And that’s why Ginko, a Mushi-shi (litterally master of Mushi), exists : to solve such problems.
As for the anime itself… It is a masterpiece. The graphics are really nice, and there are some pretty special effects, and the music is quite good too… but both work together to provide you the best anime experience you could get. Honestly, I feel like each episode is like a dream; and after each of them, my brother feels like he’s been watching a film! The story is cute, quite peaceful and calm, but still interesting. The whole atmosphere is very natural : our Mushi-shi’s adventures make him wander through the rural side of Japan, and landscapes there are as miscellaneous as they are gorgeous: from snow-covered mountains to deep, ancient and mysterious forests… And as you watch more and more episodes you’ll be interested in these eerie little beings that Mushi are : each species has scarily wonderful powers, and humans who live near are always more or less affected…
So… would you be an occasionnal dreamer, I really advise you to watch this anime. Trust me, you won’t waste your time, and you’ll want more after you have watched the first episode.
And if you’re not yet convinced, I hope the opening will make you do the first move!
