UZW writes: "Mushi-Uta is one of the most poorly paced anime I’ve seen. The first three episodes were excruciatingly dull, the fourth episode had some energy, and then the next two episodes go back to dullness while skipping over potential fight scenes. Maybe the producers are trying to appeal to an older audience . . . but it’s a show about bugs that give people supernatural powers. A good production staff knows their niche and fills that niche as effectively as possible. That’s not what happened here."
