Synopsis

Mushi-uta's story takes place in the near future. Ten years before the story's opening, strange insect-like creatures known as "Mushi" began appearing. The Mushi are able to consume peoples' dreams and thoughts in return for supernatural powers. At the end of episode one, protagonist Daisuke "Kakkou" Kusuriya encounters a young girl named Shiika Anmoto. The two, in time, become quite close. However, unbeknownst to Kakkou, Shiika is an escapee from a secret prison known as GARDEN where those posessed by the Mushi, known as the Mushitsuki are held. GARDEN's military force, the Special Environmental Conservation Executive Office, dispatches its finest killer to track down Shiika. However, they are faced with resistance from the Mushibane resistance organisation, led by the secretive "Ladybird."

Mushi-Uta Review.

Since someone else made a very negative review about this series, I decided to give you another look on the situation.

Before I start naming the 'buts', let me tell you what really intrigued me with Mushi Uta; the things that really had this series going for me.

For one, the animation. It's a 12 episodes long show, which is really short considering the amount of storytelling needing to be done. However, unlike many 12 episodes having Anime's, the animation quality wasn't bad and in fact one of this Anime's strong points. Action scenes were worked out nicely, coloring was nice and fitting, the animation was smooth and the backgrounds and effects looked particularly interesting enough.

This anime is a prime example of bad storytelling.

There are people called "hosts" who can summon powerful insects to fight battles for them. If you kill a host's insect, the host goes into an incurable comatose-like state called "fallen". News of a host who was able to recover from the "fallen" spreads, and two groups race to capture her to learn her secrets.

It had the makings of an action-packed drama; unfortunately, it was presented quite poorly. Most of the anime was focused on a love triangle that was only borderline interesting. One of the characters that had the most screen time read more

Welp, when I first started watching this show, I was like, "Oh cool! Bugs! That's awesome and original," but then, after watching past the second episode, I couldn't shake the impression that the bug aspect was really all this show had going for it. After finishing the show, I was sadly proven correct. But, let's break it down, shall we?

**WARNING! There are some slight SPOILERS from this point onwards. I'll try not to reveal anything hugely important, but to express my viewpoint on some issues, giving away tiny details is necessary.**
