Mushishi 6



Summary: In this volume, Ginko travels and meets a woman who caught a falling star and is now prone to be whisked away into the air by it at any given time, a Mushi that lives in seashells and slips into the ears of listeners thus taking away their voices, a man who can kill with his right hand just by a few seconds of touch, a snow Mushi that has wormed its way into a boy effectively making him a human snowman, and finally a boy whose father accidentally started to brew Kouki through flowers collected in local fields - making others think he's a Mushishi.

Review: This whole volume was really good. I got a bit squeamish at the story of the man who could kill with touch - that on some kind of subconscious level just freaked me out. The seashell story was really sad - that girl's father just was so abusive and unhelpful. And the Mushishi convention with the fake-Mushishi was just hilarious but interesting - accidentally brewing Kouki? I suppose stranger things have happened. The hard part now is waiting for the seventh volume to be released. [wibble]
