They are neither plants nor animals. They differ from other forms of life such as the micro-organisms and the fungi. Instead they resemble the primeval body of life and are generally known as "Mushi". Their existence and appearance are unknown to many and only a limited number of humans are aware of them. Ginko is a "Mushi-shi" who travels around to investigate and find out more about the "Mushi". In the process, he also lends a helping hand to people who face problems with supernatural occurances which may be related to the "Mushi". (Source: ANN)

[Note: I'm a bit behind in my reviews, so this next batch of reviews is going to be succinct so I can catch up. And that's a shame because this anime in particular is so awsome and it deserves tons more analysis than I have time or mental energy to give. More's the pity.]

Mushi-shi is a great show that combines myth and fantasy with a wide variety characters, situations, and themes that anyone can relate to. As a result it has genuinely drama with fantasy to make a story that is both compelling and fascinating. Highly recommended.
