    Mushi; they have been around since life began on this earth. Between our world and the next, there is a point where it becomes impossible to distinguish plant and animal, life and death. This is where you will find the Mushi. And where you find Mushi, not far behind you'll find Mushi Master Ginko. Cigarette smoking Ginko finds himself helping a lonlely child who recently lost his grandmother. This child has an amazing gift. What he draws or paints with his left hand will come to life. He draws a butterfly - a butterfly will fly off the paper!



    The boy has another problem - his dead grandma is haunting his home. She needs to move on, and Ginko is just the guy to help!



    I really enjoyed this episode - I watched both the Sub and Dub versions (Sub = Japanese voice with English subtitles/ Dub = English voice cast). It was well written, and was pretty faithful to the manga release as well.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Ginko: They [Mushi] are life at its purest form.

    • Mushi: What you are tasting is a living entity known as Light Wine. It springs from a place that normally you could not reach a river of light that flows in the deapths of the deepest darkness. We have created especially for you this wine cup which can extract the light. The river flows all around you as it has since life first began. When it nears the soil grasses grow green and forests blossom. If it recedes the landscape withers in drought. In other words it is the water of life.

    • Ginko: It's not widely known, but once in a great while an individual is born into the world who posesses a rare and wonderful gift, the power to create life.

    • Shinra: (On one side of the paper wall) Don't watch me while I draw.
      Ginko: (On the other side of the paper wall) All right, Shinra. Draw the wine cup Grandma was holding as I explained earlier, with your left hand.
      Shinra: Eh? But I don't know what color it is or what it even looks like.
      Ginko: That doesn't matter. Just use your imagination.
      Shinra: My imagination...
      Ginko: You should be able to.The other half of the wine cup your grandmother received should be passed on to her children and grandchildren.
      Ginko: (Pokes hole in wall) He told me not to watch him, but did he really think I wouldn't?

  • NOTES (2)

    • During what is called a Mushi banquet Mushi appear in human form and present a chosen human with a wine cup. If they accept and drink from the cup they will cross over into the Mushi world.

    • Mushi are life in its purest form, some can even take on human shape.
