So did the Mushi-Shi OVA confirm a Season 2?
Will you watch it?
No, it didn't.
I also won't be watching it this spring.
Yes, but not with /a/. And I hope /a/ doesn't discuss it. Mushishi is a series best left to each individual. Nothing is more cozy than snuggeling up on your bed (alone ;_;) and watching 2-3 episodes of Mushishi. So I'll wait for the season to end, before watching it.
I used to come home from school and watch an episode of mushi shi while I layed on the couch.. Sometimes I would fall asleep in the middle of the episode. Nothing made me feel quite as calm.
Wait for dub or no? Travis Willingham...
Fuck yes I'm watching it. As soon as I found out about s2 from a friend of mine I mother fucking creamed my pants with excitement. I've never gotten so lost in a world as much as I did with Mushishi.
I am not American, so dubs are like asking me to kill a person.
I feel discussing it here would destroy the emotional experience
I just finished s1 and i dont see the need for joining the thread here since the story seems easy enough to understand.
Oh, well this is the only show where I would ever consider waiting for the English dub. Season 1 was basically one of the best dubs of all time. Willingham was a perfect VA for Ginko.
Was it really that good? I watched the original and thought the voice actor for Ginko was fucking phenomenal.
Did you watch with subs too? I liked the japanese VA.
>you will never live in the world of Ginko
Yes, I watched the OVA subbed and it just wasn't the same. Even the throw-away characters had fairly decent voice acting. But Ginko, Ginko could talk me into an orgasm.
It feels too japanese for me to consider the dub, would not stray from subs
It's tough for someone who was here for the original live threads. Part of me wants to be here for the upcoming lives, but then I remember that horrid thread when season two was announced at the end of the OVA.
I'm usually one to be optimistic, but I'm afraid that the running joke has attracted far too many trolls and there will be no good to come.
I'd say it was really good. The sort of distant VA really fit Ginko's "I've experienced some shit, and I know stuff. But I am humble" type of character.
What "running joke" exactly? Don't answer if it means the thread will be derailed with whatever you're talking about..
I don't frequent /a/, I'm crossboarding from /k/.
Has the OVA been subbed yet?
It's subbed on CR. Because fuck you I use CR.
I guess I'll have to find Horriblesubs then, unless some decent group picks it up.
I still haven't seen the OVA. Why even bother bringing this series back to life? It will never live up to hype.
The answer is money isn't it?
But you could literally make this show indefinitely, due to its structure.
The writers would just have to start wracking their brains for new ideas for mushi.
>But you could literally make this show indefinitely, due to its structure.
That's what they said about Kino.
>Will you watch it?
does a camel shit in the desert?
Because the mangaka only wrote 8 volumes.
It's literally just more of the manga, I don't see it being any different from the first season
sometimes things are good because they end
Well, they could, doesn't mean they should.
I'm just saying, hardly anything plot-wise actually evolved from episode 1 to 26. Doesn't mean it wasn't good, it was just periodic, and that actually improved it, in my opinion.
Why do you think it can't?
I'm curious to see a translation of the recent interview with Nagahama, but he did want to finish the series with the original staff since the first ended.
If it's them, they can do it again.
Hardly is a bit too strong of a word, or might you need to refresh your memory?
I think the plot is simply the exploration or observation of human life, and besides the humans that Ginko encounters, his own story is slowly revealed as well.
>his own story is slowly revealed as well
Not really that much, only how he became Ginko.
And the relationship between him and the doctor.
To be very honest though, I (>>101556929 ) did not really like how episodic it all seemed. Nothing were connected, except that it was chronological. I would like to actually see a story being explored. The relationship between that girl who is stuck with writing texts about Mushi and Ginko for example.
True, but tell me this isn't also true: If you were given a shuffled file of all the episodes, you wouldn't be able to put them perfectly in order. The bookends would be easy enough, and some episodes obviously go before or after others, but as far as a strict plotline that guides the entire series, it was thin.
Most of the episodes you could pick at random and watch without missing out on anything by not seeing the preceding episode.
I wanted some more of that brother and sister with the blooming tree mushi. Like, that's the closest Ginko has come to having a traditional family.
I think it worked best that way honestly. If Ginko had some sort of goal he set out upon at the beginning of the series, it would have made all his encounters along his journey seem more like a distraction to his main goal. Maybe it would have been better if you were allowed to uncover more details on the (few) reoccurring characters as time went on, but I think it was best that Ginko's only real goal was to not stay in the same place too long and to make money being a mushi-shi.
I don't really remember that episode.
I just remember some of the ones that hit me personally, such as that girl with the "rusty voice", and the kid with horns.
And that Kaguya Hime themed one. When Ghibli announced Kaguya Hime, I was mindblown, thinking "Holy shit, Mushishi, you based an entire episode on a legend?" That was cool.
And to expand on this, it added to the transience of Ginko's lifestyle that you didn't really run into the same people often, because that's what his life would have been like. He didn't have the luxury of having a family or making friends with the people he met. He lived a life based entirely on travel and that's reflected in the episodic nature of the series.
Wasn't he supposed to have some consistent relationships though? Like that guy in the swamp girl episode who bought mushi remains? DId he ever show up again?
That was the one where there was a blooming grove in the dead of winter, fuelled by a mushi that absorbed life to reproduce. The boy had sort of the same issue as Ginko, in drawing in mushi, and his sister fell in love with Ginko.
Episode 15 it looks like, I don't really remember much from it.
Just where was Ginko travelling that he would have some history with some of the side characters but not meet with most of them again?
But that is Ginko's beginnings. All those little moments in interactions with humans say a lot for someone who is unable to remain in one place.
Tanyuu is one of the very few with whom he comes closests to planting roots with.
And about Tanyuu, have you not read the manga? You will learn a little more, but we only see so much between them for a reason, though it's only short on the surface. They have a silent understanding of each other.
Correct. Mushishi is episodic, but I simply find them connected through the struggles of humans.
The same faces can be tiring to look at, i cant help but to remember the previous episode character suffering if any. Probably because i marathoned them.
