“Fortune Eye and Misfortune Eye”

It’s fitting that an episode about vision is particularly beautiful.

“Bound for Bonfire Field”

What I love about Mushishi is that almost every episode is the “best episode yet”. This episode was positively cinematic in its execution and proves once and for all that fire is bad.

“The offshore shrine”

Another excellent episode of the show that justifies all anime love.

Ginko comes to an island like Heaven and discovers a case of nature versus nurture, and of mushishi versus the natural order of life. This is one of the more morally ambiguous episodes of Mushishi.

“The Cotton Hat”

Hard to believe that Mushishi was only two months ago, isn’t it? It seems longer because in the time between episodes I have watched roughly 177 episodes of other shows. Which, now that I’ve done the calculations, is pretty effing insane. Where the Hell did that time come from?*

Anyway, that’s not the point. The point is that Ginko is back with a vengeance, and he’s not going to let your peasant sympathies get in his way. Ginko is a placebo for the world, who can tell someone one thing while meaning another. As long as his deceptions are not discovered, there are no problems.

“A Sea of Brushes”

I miss Ginko already. He’ll be back in May for six more episodes, so it’s not all bad.

“String from the Heavens”

Another superlative episode of Mushishi, this time about faith, scepticism and the invisible.

“The robe that embraces a mountain”

I’m not entirely sure how you can have an uplifting episode of Mushishi when there are so many deaths involved. Somehow, this is that episode. It deals with success, nostalgia, block, exile, acceptance and rehabilitation in an admirable fashion.

“The Hollow Cocoon Picker”

Did you ever wonder how, given that he has no fixed address, Ginko receives all of these letters asking for help? The answer is provided in this episode, a triumph over adversity.

“The Daybreak Snake”

The first episode of Mushishi with no real conclusion: a life lived a day at a time, and a meditation on the value of memory.
