Mushishi in March

Revolver Group have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Mushishi on 3rd March 2008 priced at £15.99. From the acclaimed director of ‘Akira’ and ‘Steamboy’, Katsuhiro Otomo and adapted from a hugely successful manga novel, ‘Mushishi’ transports us into a visually mesmerizing, darkly disturbing, fantastical world.

Ginko is a mushishi (a bug master) a gifted healer who expertly manipulates the mushi, small, supernatural bugs, in touch with the essence of life and death. Whilst travelling through pre-modern Japan he meets the beautiful Tanyu, a crippled bugmaster who records the history of the mushi by locking them into scrolls.

When the mushi escape Tanyu’s scrolls and attack her, Ginko must save Tanyu and at the same time rescue the traces of a vanishing age.

Features are TBC.
