It was a decent episode. I just couldn't pick up on some stuff. kinda lost. The setting was very nice though and the music is soothing.

Wasn't expecting much, only got interested as its season 2 is about to air and wondered how it is so anticipated. And like wow, it was magnificent. I decided to keep a 1080p copy right after the first episode. Felt as fulfilling as finishing a whole nice season, yet I'm only started and still have 25 to go! Definitely going on to finish this beautiful series and its coming sequel.

This is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. This episode made me relax. Even now when I finished watching it a few minutes ago, I am still very relaxed. It was like some kind of meditation. The art and the story is absolutely stunning. While I was watching the episode I decided to check how much time is left (I thought only 10 minutes passed or so), but to my surprise, there were only 2 minutes remaining. The time flew very fast while I was watching this. And the OST is simply amazing. During the ending song I was sitting on my couch staring at the Japanese characters (from which I didn't understand one) and I couldn't move. I just sat there and watched the screen listening to that beautiful song. Normally I skip the endings, but now I couldn't even turn it off. I was frozen on the couch. This anime is simply amazing.

P.S: This comment comes from a boy who loves action and shounen series.

What a great start! :D

Too early to say anything but first impressions are it's beautiful, relaxing and very, very intriguing.

I'm completely drawn in and really excited for the rest.

That was really nice.

At some point I just got sucked in and everything just felt right. Not sure if I should marathon this though. It seems like a great series to watch an episode or two every couple of days.

Marathoning it or watching it an ep or 2 every couple of days...why would you do the latter? It's better to marathon through a series. =P

Yeah I usually do marathon a series if it sucks me in. I know Mushishi is episodic though, so I'm leaning more towards drawing it out and enjoying each episode over time. We'll see though, I might end up powering through it more after a few more episodes. ^^

Mmh.. I really don't know what to say, other than it was so soothing and calm..
The story of the episode was pretty, but the execution elevated it a bit. I am also going to watch this one or two episode per day, this has to be methabolized very well.
Ginko seems a nice character.
I'll give this 3/5.

Idk why I dropped this, now when I'm picking it again after 2 years it seems really good. Landscapes are astonishing and OST is really nice.

Interesting enough, I'll keep watching.
Good visuals so far, not as much as Shinsekai though.

Whoa... just... wow. This is the most atmospheric thing I've ever watched. It seriously felt like a meditation. If this was a single episode OVA with no series, I would've given it a 10 with no regrets. Amazing. I was in tears as the credits played.

Very beautiful artwork and music. But theres no hook yet. I really hope this doesnt have one of those episode-by-episode non-central plots.

As beautiful as the episode was, I'm not sure I like it as being the introduction to the series. Still very lovely however and I'm looking forward to watching more.

Just re-watched the first episode after finishing the series and it still had a similar effect on me. The atmosphere of this episode is just phenomenal - ESPECIALLY the ending. This would've actually been a better finale than the actual finale was with its final line:

"From that day on, the rumors of the boy with the god-like left hand were heard less and less... until finally they simply faded away."

It feels so bittersweet. There's such a touching sense of progression in these words. It captivates the essence of "life goes on," which would've been a perfect conclusion yet still leaving room for the following seasons.

Without a doubt one of the most beautiful episodes of Mushishi.

Wow, I would say that this was the anime that most left me satisfied watching the first episode. Makes you want to watch in full just by watching the first episode. And I felt the same feeling like when watched Naoki Urasawa-sensei's works. Don't know why.

Great start! ^-^

Wow! I remember trying to watch this about 2 years ago, and giving up about 10 minutes in. But this is great! It reminded me of Jigoku Shoujo, except without the negativity of the society. So peaceful... Might as well marathon this along with the OVAs and the second season.

Started out to as interesting, but then as the series went on it just became tedious. They recycled the same voice actors for different characters and similar plot scenarios every two episodes. Additionally, the atmosphere was oftentimes dull instead of calming and dragged on when Ginko would run through some nebulous woods without any real tension.

Only the soundtrack redeemed it, but doesn't make up for all of its shortcomings.

Somebody recc'ed this to me and said to watch as slow of a pace as you want, watch an episode before you go to bed. That's what I'm doing, and I think it was wonderful, a really relaxing show tbqh. I don't usually like laid back shows like this but it seems like this is going to be really good if it keeps going like it's going.

This might be one of my favorite first episodes, cause it REALLY drew me in. The calm atmosphere especially blew me away, even though I was ready for it. I can't believe I waited so long to start this show, but I'm glad I've finally started. :)

Wow! Someone recommended this to me since I'm new to anime and I have to say it seems pretty good so far. Very relaxing. I was a bit confused with the grandma though. She seems pretty cool as a mushishi and was said to be kind, but she seemed sort of condescending when she kept calling him a poor boy. I want to take my time with this series but I feel like I'm going to marathon it.

Yeah, I'm doing an episode before bed too and it was great. Calm, easy to follow, quiet, and beautiful. I'm interested enough to watch more, but satisfied enough to put some time between episodes.

I suffer anxiety and this whole episode just calmed me down. I loved how muted the colours were, and the soft music. I'm watching the dub, so the main character's deep, slow voice was lovely to listen to. I'm looking forward to more!
