Fridge: Mushishi
Fridge Brilliance
  • When you think about it, Mushishi is almost like a subtle satire of the premise of some reality shows. The typical progression in those shows is that they call in the awesome investigator guy, he always knows what to do, and he always leaves everything neatly squared away, but in Mushishi, the typical progression is that the awesome investigator guy looks at the problem, knows exactly what to do and gives advice, and then his clients totally ignore him because they realise that all along they'd actually loved their problem, thank you just the same, and the awesome investigator guy just shrugs his shoulders and walks away.
    • Though on second thought, the same comparison could probably apply to almost any show that plays The Hunter a little too straight.
