An apocalyptic event has ravaged Japan, leaving nothing but endless sandy plains behind, and a strange rusting disease terrorizes the remnants of civilization. According to the government, the horrific state of the new world is the result of mushroom spores being spread by the likes of Bisco Akaboshi, labeled the "Man-Eating Mushroom."

But Bisco would beg to differ. In reality, he is a "Mushroom Protector," determined to uncover the legendary "Sabikui" mushroom—said to be the ultimate cure for the rusting disease. Joining him on his quest are his giant crab Akutagawa and the kind doctor Milo Nekoyanagi, who is actively searching for a rust poisoning treatment for his sick sister. Despite the prejudice aimed toward him by the common folk, Bisco refuses to give up on his quest to purify the rotting world.

Aah, the first 9 episodes are worth the watch for art and whimsy alone! This could have been more than a 7/10 anime but the plot sort of imploded on itself and lost it's way around epiosde 9. I didn't finish for a long time after watching episode 9 but came back to finish the last 4 episodes at 1.5 x speed just to say I finished it. The last four episodes were as dissapointing as I was expecting them to be, and really lacked the whimsical elements of the first 9 that had me hooked at first.
Best thing about this anime was ...

Mixed Feelings
Sabikui Bisco was an anime I was invested in since seeing its first trailer, with its unique art style, and what seemed to be a unique story presentation. Unfortunately, this series failed to live up to my expectations. It did present the unique story, interesting characters, and so on, but ended up being a rather odd progression towards its ending, and by the end, I was left sort of disappointed that this unique world and characters was wasted. That being said, I did relatively enjoy it week to week, and apparently it is getting a S2, which I would definitely look out ...

Honestly, one of the most disappointing anime of its time.

The absolute hype train that was this anime's trailer and YouTuber reactions, especially Garnt's, which surfaced around the time when I first found out about the anime. And yet, after watching episode 1, you will either feel how stale these mushrooms are, or you will be high enough to keep on watching.

Again, I am one of those people who truly believe that there is no bad anime, as every anime has its own very few people who truly ...
