Of course, Mushishi - one of the most critically acclaimed franchises of recent years - is also an award winning fantasy/drama anime TV series being released on UK DVD right now by Revelation Films.

I'm quite excited/anxious about seeing this movie. Live action Mushishi sounds great, but I've read some less than glowing reviews. Obviously, the TV series is a masterpiece, so it would be hard to top that, but still, with a name like Otomo directing, I'm definitely buying this.

I've heard that Otomo at least captures the atmosphere of the original story, which may well be enough. Being able to own the anime on DVD is great but to have the opportunity to see the live action version too is the icing on the cake really. I'll be preordering this for sure!

Great news! I'm currently making my way through the first DVD volume, and I definitely intend to continue with the DVDs. It's a really beautiful series! I'll definitely be getting this MushiShi live action movie, too! Can't wait!
