Watched the first four eps so far and I'm really enjoying this one. Nice to take a break for the 20+ ep plot arcs with the standalone nature of this series.

Mysteriously freaky yet subtly peaceful.

That's what I came up with, after much internal debate, to describe this anime so far (2 eps).

I get chills watching this; the kind I got when watching Serial Experiments Lain or Boogiepop Phantom, and yet, it has such a peaceful, slice-of-life feel to it as well.

I like it. Time to watch more and see if I'll continue to like it.

EDIT:

I'm impressed. The stories are very well told. I get such mixed feelings after each episode. They leave me as "thinking" animes do, and yet, I feel refreshed from the stories as well. I can't describe it well, but it just weirds me out.

The soundtrack is impressive as well. Nothing spectacular, but it portrays the emotions of the anime well, especially the ending songs. I watched up to ep 5, and they all ended with a different song, all of which felt truly appropriate for that episode. I wonder if this will continue for all 24 eps?

I yearn for more, but I must sleep. Graveyard shifts suck.

Any of the previous posters... or anyone at all... still following this?

I've got a backlog of eps to watch I'm ahead of you though! The protagonist has a nice backstory that you only seem to be getting in very small doses but it's something to look out for in what is an episodic anime.

That's good to know. I was wondering when they'd start kicking in some story for Ginko.

As episodic as it is, I still get a continuous linear feel to it. It reminds me of Cowboy Bebop; that is, the flow of these episodic stories. Unlike many episodic shows, you still get a sense of progression for the "main story," and especially the development of the character(s), without having each episode seem out of place.

Whether Mushishi will be just like that... well, I'll have to watch more and see.

Speaking of which... time to watch more!

Well I went back and check it again becuase I forgot what it is about. Based on the ratings and what those who says it's good here, I guess I'll try to see it.
