Overview:

Mushi are a form of life lower than that of humans, animals, and plants, but closer to the origin of life. Mushi's have strange affects on animals and have been known to cause problems for people (i.e. loosing memory, hearing, sight, or even causing dreams to become real) without them even knowing.

Experts, known as Mushishi, help people who's lives have been changed by Mushi. This story follows one of these Mushishi, named Ginko.

Personal Opinion:

Ahh.. I've been hooked on this ever since I saw the first episode. I'm loving the dark atmosphere that this show presents and the constant animation quality. I guess one thing that I'm awed by is the sheer creativity of this show. It's one of a kind. It's set with dark color tones and slow, melancholy music.

I guess one downside of this anime is that with every episode is a different story. I guess it could be a good thing if you miss an episode, but I feel that I'd be more attached if it had recurring characters besides Ginko and the Mushi collector.

The manga is just as good, same art syle and same overall atmosphere and is also going to be adapted to a live-action film directed by Katsuhiro Otomo.
