In the December issue of Afternoon magazine, an announcement will be made that a two-chapter special of the "Mushishi" manga will be published.

This announcement also includes news of a "top secret project" that is in the works for the series. More info on this project will come via the wraparound jacket band that is included in the deluxe keepsake edition volumes of the original manga. The first and second volumes are expected to ship on November 21, 2013, while the third volume is expected to ship on December 20, 2013. It is not specified which volume this announcement will be included with.

The original "Mushishi" manga was published from 1999 to 2008 and received an anime adaptation which aired from October 2005 to June 2006.

Is this finally a second season? I remember that one rumor about the two guys from the production team meeting up to possibly continue Mushishi or DMC. With this news, it might be Mushishi.

DMC S2 would be even better.

No, Mushishi would. It's ending was the only thing possibly stopping it from getting a 10 from me. DMC would be fun, but a no thank you compared to Mushishi.

Three possibilities

1. Second season
2. Movie
3. Live Action adaptation
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Sorry, but my inner DMC fanboy is bigger than my inner Mushishi fanboy.
But yeah, a second season would raise my impressions even more.

I would take a movie if it adapts the rest. I don't think there were a whole bunch of chapters left. Maybe a 13 episode series. And I thought there was already a live action.

As much as I'm very pleased to hear there's something going on with Mushishi, I have to ask: who the hell announces 'top secret project'?

Builds up hype/gets people interested again. It's been awhile since any Mushishi related content has come out so business wise you would want people talking about it again before the released of these two chapters and whatever the "secret project" will be.

Who? The publisher of Mushishi of course, unless you meant to ask why (which Wind_Sr has answered) or what (which is what we are discussing here).

Please be a season 2, the first one was simply great.
And if it really is, hopefully they keep up the excellent work with the soundtrack/op and the beautiful art direction...
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

ANIME IS SAAAVVVV.....

I'm just joking. But it would be brilliant to have a masterpiece like this to get closure in anime form. I'm debating whether I should still continue reading the manga or just wait what this announcement will bring us.

I'd love a second season to Mushishi.... however, as Ishiguro who produced the series has passed on, I don't know if I'd want one if it doesn't stack up to the first season.

If this happens I have died and gone to heaven, season 2 of either Mushishi or DMC that is, I'd kill for either.

I don't even know what to write. A second season would instantly rise to the top of my expectations for 2014. Not even Jojo or Space Dandy could compare. I'll be afk praying to all the gods.

I hope it's another season, one of the best anime I've watched. If it is a second season, I might have to wait on the dub though. The sub's good..but I prefer the dub.

No, I'm asking why call it a secret project if you're announcing it. You kill people to keep projects top secret, not advertise them in magazines. I'm questioning why they did call it top secret instead of just saying there are some plans for the series. Might as well call it a space project. Or the project that will change your life. Or 'you must have it' project. It's just putting on airs. You expect something better from people working on a series like this.

WHOA!!!!!!
I don't know why but every time DMC is mentioned I think of the hack n slash video game series XD
I don't think DMC needs another series does it?? I thought it had a pretty good ending. It has been awhile though so I don't remember anymore. I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel none the less.
As for Mushishi how much of the manga was adapted in the first anime adaption?? How much material is there for season 2? I hope S2 gets made!!!!
WAR MUSHISHI!!!!
you sound poor

Mushishi has 10 volumes of manga. The first 5 volumes were animated into 26 episodes, leaving 5 volumes untouched. In those 5 untouched volumes there are 24 chapters, which makes 24 episodes. 2 new chapters means 2 more episodes added on to those 24 making 26. No doubt about it. It's a second season.

I pray that it is S2 of Mushishi directed by Hiroshi Nagahama. He directed the beautiful S1!
The rest of the chapters in the manga are amazing!
Yuki Urushibara is an excellent writer!
