Mushi-Uta is an anime series that first aired on July 5, 2007 and ended on October 4, 2007. It is written by Kyouhei Iwai and directed by Kazuo Sakai. Mushi-Uta takes place in the future. Ten years before the show's opening, strange, insect-like creatures called Mushu appear. In exchange for supernatural powers, they consume people's thoughts and dreams. The show's main character is Daisuke Kusuriya (Shintaro Asanuma), believed to be a very powerful host. He has a sister named Chiharu whose whereabouts are unknown. Daisuke meets a young girl named Shiika Anmoto (Kana Hanazawa), another powerful host. Little does Daisuke know, Shiika escaped from a prison called GARDEN, where Mushitsuki (those possessed by Mushi) are held. The military force of GARDEN sends its best killer to look for Siika. Do they find Shiika, and if so, what do they do to her? Rina Tachibana (Hitomi Nabatame), Daisuke's classmate, also appears in Mushi- Uta often.
