Synopsis

They existed long before anyone can remember. They are simple and strange in nature, not resembling any other plant or animal in this world. In ancient times, people revered these bizarre creatures and called them "Mushi."

People once again began to believe in the existence of these "Mushi" when they began affecting their lives in inexplicable ways.

The one who connects the world of "Mushi" to the world of humans—they were called the "Mushi-shi."

All life exists not to hinder others in this world.
They are simply there to live as they were meant to.

How can you put something so beautiful and masterfully put together into words? It's an experience that stands alone at the top, an experience like no other. Before it's premiere I took a moment to ponder. Will the writing still be magnificent? Will the elegant and mystical atmosphere still feel the same? Would the Fates really allow something so wonderful to happen? There was really no reason to think it wouldn't be the same, however, these were some of the small doubts that crossed my mind. How wrong I was. After nearly a decade since the franchise has left the airwaves, Mushishi returns in read more

Mushishi, a series that debuted over 8 years ago makes its return, and a surprising one at that. Beautiful is an underrated word to describe the franchise as it is much more than its natural beauty. Rather, Mushishi is a fantastic work of art, a feast of elegance to bestow upon for its storytelling. For fans familiar with season 1, the show depicts itself with an episodic format starring journeyman Ginko. Mushishi Zoku Shou (also known as Mushishi: Next Chapter) opens the door to a new saga with an mystifying adventure that will once again bring back those wonderful memories from near a decade ago.

There is a common saying that lightning never strikes twice at the same place. The same analogy can be applied to how a sequel of a classic never reaches the quality of that of its predecessor. However, both statements are far from the truth, it’s just that we don’t often see both happen very often. But when we do see it, its nothing short of magical.

What transpires into the discussion of Mushishi Zoku Shou is how it is able to keep the spirit of the original series alive and well. When you get right down to it, there isn’t any need to try to do read more

If I were to describe Mushishi in just a few words, it would have to be 'story-telling masterpiece'. Mushishi held this title and I'm proud to say that Mushishi Zoku Shou holds it as well. When such an eloquent blend of story writing, narration, atmosphere, art and sound come together it creates a fantastic, bone-chilling new world that those whom have the pleasure of viewing can't help but gawk at. Whether there is sadness, happiness, anguish or joy Mushishi Zoku Shou has delivered these feelings in a presentation so well-wrapped even its flaws cannot be seen. Mushishi Zoku Shou has been a remarkably soothing read more
