When I need uplifting, there are a number of things I can turn to--
Games or movies, music and novels--
But I watch a series called Mushi-Shi to make do.
A different, intriguing story each episode.
New characters that bring their own humor and tragedy--
Characters that have to co-exist with other-worldly lifeforms.
Mushi usually live within them,
Some more harmful than others.
Each story comes down to the extraction of them.
No Mushi is intentionlly killed.
They are never made to be horrific, disgusting things that corrupt human life.
Because every life has a place and meaning in this world.
