Description
They exist in the most unexpected places -- be it within your eyes and ears, under the floor and roof of your house, or the trees and flowers in your garden. They are everywhere and yet nowhere at the same time. Are they alive or not? Perhaps it is more apt to say they are beings who transcend the concept of life and death itself...

They are mushi.

Some wreak havoc in the lives of humans; while others bring them deliverance from suffering. Mushi are neither good, nor evil; for just like any other creature, they are merely striving to survive in this harsh, competitive world.

Ginko - a lone wanderer with a reclusive personality, offers help and guidance to those plagued by mushi. This is the tale of his travels and exploits in a wondrous world populated by these mysterious entities.

Won the 2006 Kodansha Manga Award in the category "Best General Manga".

Excellent artwork, strange, atmospheric stories, an enigmatic but engaging protagonist, this is a must-read to be savored.

Very special manga, sketchy art, beautifully simple tales about beings called mushi. Dreamy mood comparable with YKK or maybe Saikano (but less dramatic)
