Mushishi

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Natsume Yuujinchou

If you liked the laid back, surreal storytelling, as well as the artwork, music and colouring of eighter Mushishi or Natsume, you will probably like both. The shows got much in common, thei're both about a person who has to live with a special ability wich let him see into a world hidden for most people. Something that can be both a gift and a burden. To be honest, Mushishi's artwork and animation blew me a way slightly more than Natsume did, but as mentioned before it is something in the colouring, and the way the stories are told that instantly make me think of the other. The pase, the editing and the music above all gives a sertain feel that these two animes share.

Mushishi

Jigoku Shoujo

This recomendation is based more on feeling than anything else. Both Mushishi and Hell Girl has horror elements, though they are more poignant in Hell Girl. They also deal with the human condition, feelings, conflicts, loss, joy, hope and despair and love. Both series also got a strong artistic and surreal feel to them. The first episodes of Hell Girl are pretty much basic horror, but as so often with anime, the caracters and story is added more debt after the basic plotlines are set. Halfway into Hell Girl the more philosophical aspects of the series becomes more important, and thats when I started to get the feeling that it might be something to recomend to Mushishi fans, and vice versa. Hell Girl is far darker, and with a more tragic and disturbing story than Mushishi. One might say that Mushishi is the perfect feel-good anime to watch afterwards. Or watch Hell Girl if you like something slightly dark and twisted to watch after you've been humming the Mushishi theemesong for a week.

Death Note

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Jigoku Shoujo

Hell Girl and Death Note are based on almost exactly the same premises. In both series a regular person gets the oppurtunity to judge those he find to be evil, and end their lifes with the aid of supernatural powers. In Death Note it is thorugh a notebook and the aid of a death god or shinigami, in Hell Girl, it's through a website and with the aid of Hell Girl. Both series focuses on the moral and spiritual costs of revenge, and in both the series the person who accsept the bargin can look forward to a rather unplesant afterlife. The main differences between the series is that Death Note has a very fast paced storyline and works more like a modern TV thriller, and is a real mindgame. It's animation and overall style is slick and direct. Hell Girl has a more arty, surreal touch to it, and a more horror-like style. It's narrative is low pased and many episodes stands alone. You don't nessesarily have to follow the series from start to finnish like Death Note. If you like dark theemes both series should be up your ally.

Cowboy Bebop

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Black Lagoon

Black Lagoon is going for a harsh and gritty feel and the violence is far more mature and graphic than in Cowboy Bebop, especially in the second season. But as in Bebop, it always sooths the story. What bebop fans will find appealing is that they are both about a small group of individuals with various pasts living on the edge of the law... and quite often beyond. Every caracter is just trying trying to get by, day by day. The mix of various tributes and hints to popular culture and history is also something the series has in common, the well coreographed action to. The caracters are deep and rich, and full of personality in both series, and the flashbacks to their pasts just as vague. The last word uttered in the Black Lagoon series is bang, said in a way thats clearly a tribute to Cowboy Bebop. The inspiration shines through.
