The world has many hidden life forms called mushi, something like the base of all life. Ginko is a traveling mushishi, or 'mushi master', and he solves various problems that the mushi cause by interacting with humans.

First of all, this is a pretty, pretty series, and very episodic and encompassing. The down side is that the first manga volume maps nearly exactly to the anime -- as in, I can't see seeing both. I only hope that there's stuff that didn't make it to the anime, otherwise I'm just gonna give this one up.
