A new cast member, a returning character almost all loved… that is what you can expect in the upcoming special anime based on the original manga series by Yuki Urushibara.
Mushishi Zoku Shou is returning with it’s second season in October and until then you will have this eye-candy to enjoy.
Are you feeling excited?
