Mushi-Shi is meditative. At least, that’s the best way I can describe it. Taking place in feudal Japan, the show centers around Ginko, a mushi master. He travels the countryside helping people cope with the various effects of mushi, the mythical, mystical organisms that live around them. The second season is currently airing in Japan right now, and episodes are just about to roll out on Crunchy Roll. However, a 45 minute OVA is also up on the site, released in January. I highly recommend it, as it works as a standalone work. Now, pretty much every episode of Mushi-Shi works as a standalone work, but the OVA works as a good jumping in point for those intrigued. As a quiet reflection on the importance of nature, it’s a tranquil, captivating work that’s worth seeing.
