Ginko

I thought I would do a review on an anime title that I recently watched. It’s called Mushishi and it’s not too bad. I’ve seen alot of the popular anime T.V. series like Cowboy Bebop, Naruto, Death Note and Bleach. I mainly watched those titles because of their popularity (and because they were the tits) and have never actually looked around for something that I might have been into. Well Mushishi was one of the first that was entirely my choice.

The premise is that in the Mushishi world there are entities called Mushi which are the purest and most simple forms of life. Most humans cannot see or perceive them and are oblivious to their existence, except for Mushi masters who travel the land studying them and helping out people who have been affected by them. Ginko is a Mushi master and the story is based around him, his travels and the people he meets on the way.

This anime is a peaceful and sad one and it focuses a lot on themes like death and┬áloneliness. I’d recommend it to anime fans who want something a little off the beaten track in the anime world. As for the newcomers, watch one of the previously mentioned titles, get yourself hooked then watch Mushishi.

Considering my┬áhermit-like behaviour these past few weeks you’d probably forgive me for not knowing about the new Star Trek movie that is going to be released next year some time during the American summer… FUCK YES! I say. I just hope to god they don’t butcher the thing, like they have obviously done for the prequel to “The Thing”. I have read both positive and negative thoughts for the upcoming film which is to be expected with such a diverse fan base, but the one underlying anticipation is whether or not the movie will target Trekkies or aim for the general public like it did for the 2009 film. I’m guessing it’ll be the latter, but who cares. It has been so long since anyone had gotten a Trek movie right that it was a refreshing feeling to sit down and watch one that was well written and action-packed. If I have to sacrifice a little fan knowledge for a winning formula then so be it. I just hope Hollywood doesn’t screw it up this time around.

What are your thoughts on the upcoming Star Trek film?

Who do you think will be the villain(s) this time around?
