    Summary

    The kumohami did not like smog. It thickened the water vapor and slowed down the rate at which the mushi could absorb cloud. Sometimes they became trapped and found it difficult to untangle themselves from the sea of smoke-sick haze. On long windless days they drifted like balls of dandelion fluff, torn from their roots and slowly disintegrating, whenever Ginko raised his eyes towards the cityscape.

    Summary

    Ginko travels a futuristic Japan that is left in a state of transition and confusion in the years after a conflict that continues to leave its mark on the land and people. As he continues to be a helper of civilians and talented mushi master, he is forced to acknowledge and accept himself, his past, and navigate a sometimes confusing world with the people he holds dear. A very self indulgent sci fi fic written by a Mushishi stan who has a lot of thoughts on the future. Contains a bit more expansion on Ginko and side characters, including Adashino and Tanyuu. The tags seem crazy, but it is not a sad or disturbing story.

    Summary

    Adashino may not be able to see mushi, but that doesn’t mean they can’t choose him as their host.

    When Adashino is possessed by a mushi that lives off other mushi, Ginko becomes sick. Very sick. The Tokoyami in Ginko's empty eye struggles to survive the influence of this stronger mushi. Ginko is pulled along in this struggle, bleeding and in pain.

    The Tokoyami may be strong enough to fight off this dark mushi, but Ginko’s body isn’t, which leaves him torn between staying to save Adashino and risking his own life - and leaving, never to return again.

    Summary

    “Let no one who loves be called altogether unhappy. Even love unreturned has its rainbow.” ― J.M. Barrie

    -
    When Ginko passes through the village by the sea, he finds his friend playing host to a strange and unknown mushi. It sits like a crown of flowers upon the doctor's head, and like a bed of thorns inside his chest. Adashino, for his part, will never speak of what nests in his ribs, and he follows Ginko in search of answers he may already have.

    Summary

    “What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. ...Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.” ― John Lubbock, The Beauties of Nature and the Wonders of the World We Live In
     

    “I told you it was a good cafe,” Tanyuu says to Adashino's skepticism. She takes another sip of her iced drink and mirrors his contented hum. “They do a lot of custom orders.”

    Adashino considers, taking another sip of his coffee. “Like a Starbucks secret menu?” 

    His own comment gives him pause, as he realises he doesn’t actually know what this cafe is called. Or if they even have a normal menu. Actually, if he considers, he’s not even sure he knew this cafe existed before he stepped into it, before Tanyuu brought him in. He turns over his shoulder and looks through the front window, frowning, tracing the snow outside and the street he knows. The street he’s walked down dozens of times before— he’s sure of it. And yet he has no idea where he is, what the street is named, nor does he have any memory of following Tanyuu here.

    "What is this place, really?"
