After reading first volume I decided to watch first anime episode but ended watching episode after episode. Today I continue watching anime and after I have decided to see movie as well.
Summary is misleading leading to believe that mushi are evil or at least hostile to humans but that’s not true.

[...] their (Mushi) existence, when intertwined with the existence of humans or animals or plants, causes strange phenomena to occur. It's not like the Mushi are intentionally trying to make people sick or worse, it's just that the generic difference between Mushi and humans is so immense that the interaction between the two often has negative influences toward the humans. (animebot31)

Despite that when Mushi and human crosses paths it often leads to tragedy I still wish Mushi would be real as they also brings something beautiful, magical and deeper meaning to world.
