About a year ago I tried out Mushi-shi and found it to my liking, in a wierd, abstract kind of way. I didn’t really say much about the series then but now that Steven has started watching it, I feel like I should record some of my impressions. Spoilers possible, so follow below the fold.
AICN has a fascinating review of an anime series that got my attention:
The science fairy tales make real dangers of concerns from the boundary between juvenile “why” questions and profound philosophical queries such as seeing in the dark, the inherent significance of shapes or the cause of dreams. It then addresses these troubles a as procedurals inspired by folk stories.
