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 loneliness. 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.
