Trying to ensure their survival in a science-obsessed era, the Mushi cast their malevolent spell on humans and nature alike. The precociously white-haired Ginko has lost his youth and one eye studying the Mushi. Like a travelling doctor, he visits far away places to undo their deeds and to cure their victims. Meanwhile, in a secluded mansion, beautiful Tanyu records the history of the creatures. But one day, the ink she uses to write her tales permeates her blood vessels and all the characters disappear from her precious scrolls.
