MUSHI-SHI Is Perhaps Too Tranquil To Even Talk About

Even if it is, indeed, amazing, it's still incredibly difficult to review.

Dig Deeper into Mushi-Shi

The story features ubiquitous creatures called Mushi that often display supernatural powers. Mushi are described as beings in touch with the essence of life, far more basic and pure than normal living things. Ginko, an expert on these beings, travels and helps those who have been effected by them.

I get where you are coming from Tom of how it is very subjective like Modern Art and sometimes you can see where the artiest is coming from and sometimes you may not. BTW I think I seen some of the comics you mentioned and they do have some similarities with the different of pacing.

I'm a fan of this sort of minimalist moodpieces, but enough to pay £100 for a DVD boxset? I guess it's a positive that it stands out amongst other anime.

I might just watch it online, then if I like it enough, get the SAVE boxset.

I really loved this show. Totally agreed on the "oh, it ended" feeling. Perhaps even a little disappointed with the last few episodes in other ways too. It seems like the Mushi are less and less important and the more mythical happenings drop off the farther you get in. Maybe it's some kind of symbolism or plot points they want to make relevant to humans and people that I missed, but I found myself wishing for a bit more "magic" at the end.

If you liked this show enough Tom I'd recommend Natsume Yujincho http://www.crunchyroll.com/natsume-yujincho/episode-1-the-cat-and-the-book-of-friends-515654 It's similar in the way that it has the mellow tone of this show and supernatural elements. Also helps that I thought it was more entertaining.

I found myself strangely somewhere between bored and hooked. I ended up finishing the series and ultimately I think I enjoyed it, but I agree that it is a hard show to judge.

I absolutely loved it. Every episode felt new and interesting, and the sound design is absolutely superb. I actually held off watching the last few episodes, because I didn't want it to end. : (

Sandman and mellow-Hellblazer are definitely apt comparisons.

I can also agree with Snipper138's recommendation of Natsume Yuujinchou - it has a very similar mood and I've found it very entertaining.
