Mushibugyo Episode 1 Review

First Impressions: Not the best animation, funny, lots of action and entertaining.

I did end up watching the first and second episode’s back to back on this series, the first episode gives you an idea of the series and introduces most of the main characters (even if its only breif at this point) the second episode focuses on one two of the main characters and quickly starts to build up a picture of their past and pull you in.

Mushibugyo is set in old school Japan in a place called Edo! Which is large as you can see from the picture.

Jinbei has come in his fathers stead to work in the city fighting off giant bugs which plague the town (where he used to live was colder and thus the bugs don’t go there).Mushibugyo Episode 1 -  AnimeMage.com

 While looking for the place he needs to work he is helped by a girl called Haru who lost her parents to the bugs

As you can see from the picture they aren’t exactly hard to spot these bugs and a little bit of bug spray wont do the trick.

So Haru was unfortunate to get caught by the bugs and just before it was too late!!!!Mushibugyo Episode 1 -  AnimeMage.com

However when it all gets out of hand and your surrounded by bugs that’s when you want the backup to arrive!

And finally (There is another main character but we don’t find out much about him) Ichinotani Tenma a young scared looking boy who some how magically controls what look like giant paper dolls to do his bidding and kick ass I’m sure his story will be intresting.Mushibugyo Episode 1 -  AnimeMage.com

Overall the series is quite odd, Humans fighting Giant human eating bugs with different levels of skill, strength and ability.
2 episodes in and I’m already interested in the characters and am looking forward to further episodes.

The series has some good comedy elements mixed in with the action and story. Defiantly worth checking out.
