I began to get back in to anime last year. I'm pretty sure watching this is what stopped me again.I can't watch the levels of fan service in it. It's creepy. I don't understand it on any level. I wouldn't recommend it to people due to that. I can't get past it.

Yeah. The lesson here were that man is stupid and impulsive.Also that you should always listen to Ginko.But I like that they don't beat you over the head with backstory. We know hy Ginko can't stay and look after the villiage. But instead of explaining that; he just tells her to suck it up and deal with it.Also needle throwing skillz.

Contra replied to the topic Watch & Learn: MUSHI-SHI #20 on the Mushi-Shi board.
An interesting point in the episode is that he attracts Mushi... so maybe Ginko caused the eggs to hatch, and thus the crisis in the episode. After all what are the chances of it happening the moment he gets there, when you have all these other people going there also; and it seemed to have been a significant amount of time since he was there last, as she was surprised ...

I don't think an anime based MMO is ever going to stand up against WoW.First the word 'anime' puts too many people off before you even get into it. I know several people are are instantly put off by putting the label anime on it in any way shape or form.I can see High School of the Dead working though. Noone really dont a survival MMO yet. And I really ...

This is also my fav episode. It's just masterfully done; from the ideas behind it to the art and everything inbetween. Sadly other than I love it, there isn't a lot else to say.

Mushishi may indeed be better in the once in a while format.Trying to mainline it may not work because its not a show that uses the well known hooks to get you to watch the next episode. There are new cliffhangers or exciting times that get you pumped to watch another episode.Maybe it's best to just watch one episode at night as you are winding down every so often.

Well in recient history, there is Death Note.Not eating a potato chip...but erm... spoilers...But this moment.Ok the music is helping greatly, and the creators knew exactly what they were doing; but it's still an awesome moment.

It's been popular for the last 10 years.  Princess Princes.I My Me! Strawberry Eggs. Fruits Basket  Hell the show Simoun takes this to a really wierd place; and considering this idea is general is strange, that is saying something.

Going by peoples descriptions, and the trailer, that looks like the sort of thing that I'd maybe have watched a decade ago.  Now.  No.  The cutesy thing I find annoying when it's done well and spectacularly creepy when not.  And usually the comedy of " looking up girls skirts" 95% of the time means it's the latter: in the same way I doin't find the 'Carry On' movies funny most ...

Contra replied to the topic Favorite Fan Service Scenes on the Just Anime board.
I hate the sexual type of fanservice.  There is far too much of it to the point of making some things, like Highschool of the Dead, unwatchable in polite company.      I like references like Panty Shocking and Garterbelt, where they do everything from Gorilaz through to bad translations of Ghost in the Shell.  It's the MST3K of reference anime... you miss one there will be another in a few ...

I have to agree that there are not easy answers to this show.  It raises ideas, throws them at you and lets you move on without ever really going deeply into a lot of them.  The ones they do explore they do very well.   Death and rebirth; especlaly the last scenes, almost had me in tears because you know the type of story that was behind that. You know there ...

Contra replied to the topic Watch & Learn: MUSHI-SHI #14 on the Mushi-Shi board.
Another great episode.  I agree with your comment about its similarity to those classic sci fi one shots where you take a high concept idea, and throw it at the wall to what happens.  Here the idea is one that anyone who's ever got lost in the woods at some point considers, what if I never get out.  I think most forrests develop their own ghost stories and myths about ...

A great episode.  Ginko said it was because the Mushi was a living thing, and he didn't want to do anything to it; but really it comes down to while your brain knows shes dead, and you could force yourself probably, to end it; your heart sees a girl.  Ginko still sees a girl.  He's worked out it's life cycle as you see, so knows they can leave their hosts.   ...
