Live action Mushi-shi coming to U.S.

15 06 2009

JG Mushi-shiA live action adaptation of the anime series Mushi-shi, made in 2006, has been acquired and will be released in the U.S. by Funimation.

Mushi-shi, loosely translated as bug master, follows the story of one such individual as he wanders the countryside, assisting folks who have run-ins with these mushi. The mushi refered to here (mushi means insect in Japanese) are a cross between supernatural beings and bugs, and mushi-shi are sort of naturalists, taking a scientific approach to what appears to others to be ghosts or supernatural phenomena.
