Mushishi


We will be closed early today. We're back open on Monday at 11:00 am.
This image was taken from an anime show called, Mushishi. Ginko, the Mushishi Doctor, travels from place to place to help individuals or a whole town infected by mushishi. 

"There’s no effective way to describe the mushi – They simply are. They simply have been since life first began. As with many other things, man has forgotten how to see. And just as it’s difficult to describe the feel or texture of an object to someone who’s never held it in his own hands, to one who’s never seen the mushi…
Between this world and the next, there is a point where it becomes impossible to distinguish between plant and animal, between life and death. It is a place man was never meant to tread… This is where you will find the mushi. Neither good nor evil, they are life in its purest form. An unseen river reshaping the path of man, through their very presence we are changed.

Vulgar and strange, they have inspired fear in humans since the dawn of time and have, over the ages, come to be known as “mushi.”" ---funimation.com  

Ginko can't always cure his patients with certain mushishi spell, but he helps them live with it. As he himself have been infected by a very powerful mushishi. As you can see in this picture he is smoking, but that is not a traditional cigarette or cigar. That is his medicine or protector from the mushishi. He can't stay in one place for very long, because he actually attract these things. This anime show is full of adventure, slice of life, drama, action, and beautiful spiritual creatures. You can watch the episodes at funimation, or click here.

We'll see you Monday!
