“The Fabricated Spring”

This mystery takes an unprecedented 15 months to unravel. Winter, spring, the hints of love: this episode of Mushishi truly has everything.

“Inside the Cage”

Tremendously sad yet slightly hopeful, “Inside the Cage” is a masterstroke of Mushishi about a selflessness of love that is too strong to survive.

“The One Night Bridge”

The music is used to excellent effect in this, one of several episodes of Mushishi in which no one wins. Not depressing, but certainly unhappy.

“The One Eyed Fish”

I really don’t know how to introduce an episode of Mushishi without sounding clichéd. It never fails to impress.

Vague spoilers

Mushishi – episode 11

“Sleeping Forest”

A slightly ambiguous episode in its dealings with the nature of Ginko himself, but an otherwise excellent story about choice and, again, fault lines.

“White in the Ink Slab”

The burden of guilt. Fossilised mushi. Adashino.

“The Heavy Seed”

For all the talk about how depressing Mushishi is, and that all of the episodes lack happy endings, I find that the primary message of this anime is hope. Despite the themes of death, the ultimate feel of this episode was optimism and assurance.
An excellent course to stay.

“From the Sea Border”

Tragedy is coupled with hope for this tale of love, loss and redemption. Thanks to time dilation, this episode features one of my favourite theories, albeit one more often applied to space.

“The rain falls, a rainbow forms”

I hereby vow not to declare any episodes of any series “the best episode so far”.
Anyway, in this, the best episode of Mushishi so far, Ginko builds a camaraderie with a man who plans to hunt and capture a rainbow in a jar. Excellent stuff.

“The Herd That Drinks Dew Drops”

Human will is a strange thing. Mushishi is beginning to distinguish itself by paying more attention to the feelings of the mushi affected characters. Not everything in this world is cut and dry.
