Mushi-shi follows a man named Ginko as he travels through the world encountering the Mushi in their various forms. The Mushi are a form of bacteria – for want of a better word – that appear throughout the world. They are used to explain certain natural occurences, for example, one boy becomes deaf due to Mushi that live in his ears and eat sound.

There is no real overarching storyline so viewers can pick it up at any time – which is especially helpful if United Video or Amalgamated does not have the first disc. On a visual level, this show is PRETTY! Beautiful backgrounds accompany some powerful visual images in a traditional Japanese time. The opening theme song, entitled “The Sore Feet Song” by Ally Kerr (methinks) is beautiful too.

Definitely worth a watch for both veterans of the genre and beginners as well (oh, cliches, how we love thee).
