Mushishi 蟲師 Live Action (2007)

Mushishi Live Action

the mushi (creatures) were portrayed to own supernatural powers. he lost his mother since young, n has the ability to see the mushi. he followed a mushishi (mushi master), traveled from place to places to help those suffered from mushi problem.

yet to catch its anime, i believe the anime should be much more interesting than its live action movie. the live action was slow but the idea was rather mesmerizing. the mushi was such beautiful creatures. worth a catch if you don't minda the slow moving plot.

  2. Mushishi *sob sob* Sadly to say, I have no idea what it is like =(

    Hey, I am ok with slow movement in the movie lol... as long as it's nice, I can watch them all. Hmm... I rmb de time I recommended the movie " Pride n Prejudice" from Jane Austen to my bro lol.. He said he fell asleep watching it ^ ^ but I was so excited to see how the story goes, and compared it to what I read from the book. The movie is not bad, but if I've never happen to read this novel ever before, I would probably fall asleep watching it too lol... ^ ^ Have you heard about this novel, Princess? What about "Jane Eyre"? I like that one as well ^ ^ *sigh* it's been awhile since I read novels... I kinda lose interest in reading novels now :|

  5. akira: the anime is actually one the top few anime that is rated the best. ;)

    barbie: sounds familiar. my guess is, either i watched it before i started blogging, or i haven't watched it. jane eyre was one of the all time favorite novel back then. i read those when i was in high school. :D not reading similar novels anymore though, change of genres. :p

    rollakid: it's still somewhere at the bottom of your list eh ?? not a rush though, if something else is in your mind, it might get boring.

    pete: what do you mean ?? you watched it n its filled with many characters ?? or you're not into anime as a whole ??

  12. akira: you're seriously a fan of seed n destiny eh. ;) i'm quite blur with destiny, not sure why. the only scene i'm touched n excited was when mu recovered his memories.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh really? Haha, that was touching too! But the whole story is very nice, I think...

  14. akira: i still prefer the first more than the second. ;) it didn't really caught my attention.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Haha, maybe the advanced Gundam could catch your attention?

    ReplyDelete
  16. akira: maybe it was because the same guy driving different gundams that was confusing me ?? i was struggling to remember who drove what gundam after which gundam etc. n first season was quite direct as there were at most 2 gundams per person.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Kira and Athrun just changed their Gundams to another models, which is quite the same colour, and that made you confuse, right?

    ReplyDelete
  18. akira: same color is fine, the trouble is the name. it doesn't relate to each other at all. nothing is helping me to remember it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Haha, that is so troublesome for you... I think Gundam-lovers should not have this problem, right? Like me! XD

    ReplyDelete
  20. akira: i won't have trouble if its similar with seed. i didn't have trouble with seed at all. even the enemy's mobile suits i can remember. nor did i have trouble with 00. destiny is really pushing my limits. grr.

  21. I faced it when I started to watch the Destiny, but after I did some researches, then I knew what is actually going inside Destiny.... =)

    ReplyDelete
  22. akira: research ?? aw, that means destiny is actually complicated ?? i was expecting it to be as straightforward as seed.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yeah, is a bit complicating sometimes, depends on how you understand the story then...

    ReplyDelete
  24. akira: i was actually asking people around me that finished watching when i was watching it. sometimes they went .. "what? got meh?" XD

    ReplyDelete
  25. Haha, then they dont know about it as well... Ask me ask me!!! Hehe...

    ReplyDelete
  26. akira: i think if i were to watch again, i would still choose seed. i still remembered the scene that caught me the most is when they change colors for the first time. i was so overwhelmed !! :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Haha, phase shift change!!! Yeah, I was stunned for a while when I watched that too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. akira: the totally unexpected scene was a really great boost of atmosphere !! :D
