    The MUSHISHI Anime Pimping Project



    The Story:
    Spoiler:
    This 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 the grotesque creatures we are accustomed to. Due to their ephemeral nature, most humans are incapable of perceiving Mushi and are oblivious to their existence, but there are a few who possess the ability to see and interact with Mushi.

    One such person is Ginko (ギンコ), the main character of the series. He employs himself as a Mushi master (蟲師), traveling from place to place to research Mushi and aid people suffering from problems caused by them. The series is an episodic anthology in which the only common elements among episodes are Ginko and the various types of Mushi. There is no over-arching plotline.

    The anime series is a straightforward adaptation of the manga. Each episode tells a self-contained story and is not dependent on prior episodes for background. This made it possible for the producers of the anime to change the relative order of the stories. However, aside from a slight abridgment of the dialogue, this is the only major difference between the manga and the anime.

    Series Info:
    Spoiler:
    Mushishi (or Mushi-shi, or 蟲師) is a historical fantasy manga and anime series.
    The original manga, drawn by Yuki Yoshiyama, is ongoing; as of March 2006, 35 chapters have appeared in Afternoon magazine, and seven volumes of the compiled manga have been released in Japan.

    The anime series, directed by Hiroshi Nagahama, had 26 episodes and completed its run on June 18, 2006.

    I still don't get it. What are mushi again?
    Spoiler:
    I am not entirely sure myself. All I know is what has already been said above. But I guess mushi are kind of like those Kodamas from Mononoke Hime. But they vary in form. A lot. And Ginko studies them, because he's just cool like that. :p


    WILL I LIKE THIS??!!??!!
    Spoiler:
    This series is SO good. If you liked Princess Mononoke, Kino's Travels, the Rurouni Kenshin OAV, and/or Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō, and even if you didn't, you will probably love this. <3

    However, take note: This isn't an action series. This isn't a shounen series, either. If you only enjoy action, look away and come back when you conquer your ADD.

    If good (yet fragmented) stories, gorgeous atmosphere, and emotionally evocative direction are your bread and butter, look no further. If you enjoy mellow, meandering, and beautifully nuanced narratives like Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō, you will want to make sure you watch this. :D


    Our Purpose:
    We are going to get the word out about Mushishi, since the series has yet to reach all of its potential audience and since it is not NEARLY as popular as it should be.

    Mushishi is already available online, but it's a bit hard to find, and we want to make sure that everyone who might enjoy this manga gets it. :D


    So that is why we have ULed Mushishi to MegaUpload--to share it with you as best we can. <3


    HOW THIS WORKS:
    Spoiler:
    We have links to the Mushishi anime and we will send the links you need after you request them. We will send out no more than 3 episodes at a time, in an attempt to not overstress our links and to ensure you keep coming back for more. :jk

    Trust me, this system is not complicated. It will be very easy for you to get what you want. What you do is this:

    1) check out the Mushi Makimono (a.k.a. the Mushishi's Menu), where we list what we have available.

    2) post in the thread, saying which episodes (up to 3 at a time) you want, and we will PM them to you as soon as we see your post.

    Simple enough, right? ^^


    The Mushi Makimono (a.k.a. the Mushishi's Menu)

    We know that you will fall for this series if you give it a chance, and we truly hope that our project will ensure that you do. That is why we spent (A LOT of) time and bandwidth making it readily available to you.


    Sincerely,

    --The Ginko-gumi (jkingler, Jaime Lannister, Chamcham Trigger, vanh, ydraliskos...)



    P.S. Here is a link to the Mushishi Discussion Thread. Don't talk about the anime here, since we don't want to spoil anyone. ^^

    I surely can. And, in fact, I just have.

    Enjoy and feel free to spread the word--this anime is small in PR as well as in it's vocal fanbase, despite it's overwhelming poetic qualities and potency. :oh

    I need 16 and up but do you have other links then the Meguapload ones. Megaupload doesn't really like me. Download speed is really slow usually. If you guys don't have other links then MU, I'll download it from Mirc. Thanks

    Thanks but I'll just download it from Mirc. It will take you guys to much time to upload it to SS. I don't want to do that to you guys.
