Spiritual Successor to Mushishi

I'd say that calling this a successor to Mushishi, while not totally doing service to either work, communicates the core loop of this manga.

With the backdrop of this being a legend passed down through the ages we travel around a Japan trending away from the magical and towards being a more 'normal world' running into different historical Kami and other supernatural experiences and solving the issues presented.

The main cast of a monk, a somewhat ornery boy, and a out of her element but adaptable girl play off of each other nicely. They're forced to deal with the problems presented through planning and creativity rather than using any kind of force. And even the jokier Kami or scenarios feel very threatening and otherworldly.

With some really breathtaking setpieces communicated with stellar art it gives the entire manga an incredible impact. Things that should be ridiculous fit well into this world,

such as a Kami doing battle with an aquatic dinosaur
and it can be hard to even take the time to read the dialog the imagery is so strong.

A definite great read.
