I really need to finish Mushishi. I just enjoy an episode every once in a while. Being a slow burner makes it hard for me to marathon. Hopefully ill catch up before the sequel airs.

more natsume is always good, fifth season please !!

I didn't watch the first season when the anime was still on-going but I love the anime mostly for its originality, but I hope for some changes on the art I'm not saying the previous one is bad just a little bit improvisation would be nice

Enough motivation to start watching the first season.

I remember doing this with Fate and Eureka.

Sooo will the OST's be identical from season1+ the special? Or will we hear some new orgasmic music from Toshio Masuda?

ERMYGAWD ^_^ Im so happy to know theres a new Mushishi coming out. I was disappointed there wasn't a sequel.

My body is ready.

I thought they were going to make another special or something because of how the special ended.

BUT A SEASON 2 JUST BLEW MY MIND.

I'm so, so, so excited about this. I really love Mushishi and couldn't be more happy about this. I haven't really watched that much anime in the last couple years but news like this and the occasional interesting new show keeps me from being separated from the medium completely.

I wonder if we may have another season like this for Kino's Journey in the future if it ends? I love it as much as Mushishi. Oh well for now, I'll just read the novels...

Was meaning to get around to finish the manga but haven't had time so i'll just wait for this xD

Best anime news since at least 2011.
And, guess what, I was rewatching the first series before I saw this announcement.
