17-year-old Shinichi Izumi is partially infected by a Parasyte; monsters that butcher and consume humans. He must learn to co-exist with the creature if he is to survive both the life of a Parasyte and human, as part monster, part person.
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 occurrences which may be related to the "Mushi". Written by

I find Mushishi NOT to be boring but i view it as the MOST boring
anime(but not sure if manga) ever. The sheer commitment to no service
of any kind to the reader/viewer has to be admired ! There is only deep
storytelling and the beauty of nature nothing more. The mangaka had a
vision to tell and did't care about the reader one bit. Ether you get
on the slowest train if all or you go home. A friend of mine i now
forced to watch the series described it as gently walking through a
forest. I couldn't describe it better. 10/10 and the best Mono no aware
of all. The new Mushishi volume is identical to the two sisters episode
11 and 12(or special if you like) from season 2 by the way.
