Wow, this is a work of art. There's so much sadness to it though. I feel so strange after watching it.

I love rewatching this episode. First episode was so-so for me but this one got me completely hooked back when. Sound and animation form something completely unique imo. Even without the story itself it's beautiful and immersing.

Man, what a weird episode, I didn't even feel how it passed.

I guess that these, kind of "primal life spirits", kind of remind me of Princess Mononoke(don't tell me they aren't related), especially the moment when the liquid came out of Sui's eyes.

This episode felt kinda sad, even though it ended kinda well. I guess I like this.

Really loved this episode, thought it was much better than the first one (which was great). I see myself finishing this series in only a few days, it's got me hooked.

This episode reminded me of an old japanese saying "while deaf look stupid blind look wise" :D
Also am I the only one who tried to close the second eyelids???

(ok, I guess I am the only crazy here...)

This Anime.... is quite original.... it gives you a weird feeling xD

That mushi coming out was like infinite. Didn't expect such a creepy thing to happen...and the second eyelid when closed looks kind of scary. I guess that's really how Ginko lost his eyes? I agree that the anime gives you a weird feeling, the whole atmosphere is just very...mystical? I love all the nature too. I don't usually see this much green in anime.

I also wonder what the light may symbolize? It reminds me of the kouki (?) from the first episode, where is was also some kind of bright light, but could be brought down into a drink with that green bowl.

Such a beautiful episode. The ending especially got me when Ginko closed his second eyelids and Ginko decides to stare at the darkness ahead of him away from the flowing essence of life.

I watched this episode at 3am alone in my room in the dark. Once I saw the girl's creepyass empty eye sockets I was just like NOPE NOPE NOPE and turned on all the lights. Then, I had to watch a random episode of Ouran HSHC (my go-to feel better anime) in order to finally go to sleep. T__T

That aside, I really like the aesthetics and pacing of this anime so far. Some of the scenes are simply breathtaking.

so nice and peaceful.

the mushishi is a seriously intriguing character
"Urushibara Ruka. The mannerisms and voice of a woman... No... More feminine than any woman. But he's a guy. Taller than Mayuri, but so very thin... But he's a guy. Looks great in a miko outfit... But he's a guy. It's already twilight And yet, it's so hot. The cicadas are crying. But... He's a guy."

hmmm.. it really is interesting.
a second eyelid. intriguing.
an original story, seems that
every episode could be a short
movie on its own.
I presumed while watching the
first episode that I'd love this
anime and I still think the same.

Much better episode than the first I thought. It was just mesmerizing. Kinda depressing but in a feel good way. Even though it was calm, it was pretty crazy how sui and ginko had no eyes, and that part when he tried to take the mushi out of her.

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

It got really creepy at one point. LIked it more than the previous episode for some reason.

I'm only 9 episodes in, but this second ep is my favorite so far; i didn't like the first ep of the show, it was okay, but didn't catch my attention so much, the second ep was brilliant and is the reason I decided to continue.
I'm hoping for another ep as good as this one! :)

I've been wondering from the first ep, but most of these Mushi look a lot like floaters.

This is the anime i have been looking for. :D
One of the most original plots out there, thats for sure.
Love the visual art, and op song.

Just the other day i was reading some facts about human eyes. And some kind of eye bugs[not mushi ofc] that are too small too see with human eye does exist actually o.o
Now i'm going to have nightmares about this. LOL.

Was great ep, a little creepy aswell.

That mushi was amazing.

It was really cool how he helped that little girl.

Looks like he didn't pick up any reward during this episode.

Mushi seem only connected to children so far, I wonder if that is always the case. Didn't expect this anime to be a little bit creepy.

Serene, surreal, splendid. Goosebumps multiple times and got a little teary eyed toward the end yet again.
