>it's a Ginko is right but no one listens to him episode
Ginko is rude. I don't know why everyone puts up with his shit.
>that episode with the lightning child and the mother who wouldn't love him
I can still hear his screams
>his name begins with gin
>has silver hair
it's not a name
>that episode with the ginormous snake that eats gods
>it's a "Ginko burns downs a house filled with heretical knowledge" episode
Anyone here read Suiiki (or "Waters") by the same author? It may not be as great as Mushishi but it's definitely worth the read.
>he hates Ginko
>he hates Gintoki
Bet you suck cocks too.
I love it. Really enjoyed it being in that familiar setting for one extended story.
But when you try to explain it as Mushishi without mushi or Ginko then it doesn't sound too appealing to people.
>it's a defenseless single woman lets a complete stranger into her house for the night episode
It's weird how willing all these characters were to let Ginko stay with them. No matter how handsome a guy is, surely you'd worry about rape and theft a little more.
So are most series, and a huge number of them feature rape. Period settings especially, since it's not like the law would help them.
A lot of the time they let him in before they even know there's something wrong, and he's just a guy who needs a place to stay.
I mean, obviously the reason is because it would needlessly hinder the plot if they didn't let him in, and it would screw with the tone of the series. It was just a pretty conspicuous lack of concern.
>rural medieval Japan
>you pass through towns all the time because hey everything moves slow as dirt
>you find some town on your way from one port to another
>villages gossiping about the new face in town
>you stay at someone's house because it is not economically viable to have inns in little podunk backwaters
>everyone in the village has some idea who you are and where you are because gossip
>the culture you grew up in emphasizes not causing trouble for the rest of society
>if you had to run from them, you would have to somehow avoid locals already deeply familiar with the countryside
Similarly in Medieval Europe, the idea of staying at some roadside in was rare because it wasn't economically viable. People usually just asked to sleep in a local farmer's barn or whatever
It's not comfy in its usual meaning but I chilled and felt peaceful watching all those nature and mushis.
>it's a people try and follow Ginkos instructions but everything goes wrong anyway episode
>it's another "Ginko knows exactly how to deal with the mushishi in question"-episode
Who's the better ghostbuster?
Ginko or the Medicine Peddler?
Once you start accepting that the vagina is in fact an entirely separate living entity that only exists to be carried around by the shell of a woman everything starts to make more sense.
>it's an indirectly adashino's fault episode
Medicine Peddler is immortal and has a constant algorithm to defeat each Mononoke.
Ginko is mortal but perpetually followed by Mushi, and deals with so many different mushi he often has to get his hands dirtier.
It really depends on the type of ghost that is being busted. Some mushi can't even be defeated, but there's always a way to defeat a Mononoke especially if you have a god sword.
People weren't as overtly suspicious in ye olden days.
Also, people may be more inclined to trust that he is a traveler and legitimately just needs a place to stay because he looks like a medicine seller with that big box he carries around.
