Question: After looking at the Mushi-Uta website, I found some terms that interested me. Since I've never read the novel, can someone translate (or explain, if you know what it is) what these terms mean:

虫憑き
始まりの三匹
欠落者
特別環境保全事務局
むしばね

Also, people that wear those black goggles are in the same organization as Kakkou, right? (and it makes them look pretty evil...).
Like this:
Is there a reason for wearing those?

I can't help but say, from looking at the character portraits, that most "mushi" users look evil like:
Spoiler for Size:

The characters not included give me bad feelings.

Mushi-uta is probably a good example of misjudging a series by its cover. Before the series aired, I thought "bugs? People wearing goggles with weapons? It's probably just another action shounen title!" Then I watched the first episode, and thought "this feels different.". After I watched the second episode, "no action?! (except for that one scene). Are they going to take pacing seriously? This series is different, I must check out more!"

For a 12 episode series, I think, Mushi-uta will be nicely paced judging from just the first two episodes. I'm also thinking Mushi-uta might get slightly psychological. I certainly didn't expect this from Mushi-uta, but I am glad I didn't give up on this series. ^^v

I'll try to not say too much, so as not to spoil anything. Though I can't really say that much as I haven't actually read the novels either.

虫憑き (Mushi-tsuki)
People who have been possessed by a Mushi.

始まりの三匹 (Hajimari no Sanbiki)
Literally "the first three". These are 3 Mushi I think.

欠落者 (Ketsurakusha)
Mushi-tsuki who have lost their Mushi.

特別環境保全事務局 (Tokubetsu Kankyou Hozen Jimukyoku)
The Special Environment Preservation Department. Tokkan for short. They're the ones who aim to control the Mushi.

むしばね (Mushi-bane)
They are the resistance against the Tokkan.

Spoiler for Shika's family:


始まりの三匹 (Hajimari no Sanbiki)
Literally "the first three". These are 3 Mushi I think.
Not Mushi, but people that have the ability to grant people Mushi,
One grant fusion type(The rarest), one grant special type(Weird priest/church person), and one grant normal type(Weird lady)
Might have gotten the order wrong again~~

So the "Hajimari no Sanbiki" are what caused "Mushi" to appear in the world? Are they human? Also, are they still alive and are any of their identities known?
(Sorry if I'm throwing questions left and right......)

Yes, no one know what they are, just they appeared 10+ year ago, some theory that Mushi are bio experiment other are natural phenomon...no one knows yet., Tokkan are split into two group over them.
Group 1. Central side want to leave them alone so they can create more Mushi so that Central Tokkan can study Mushi
Group 2. Kako's want to destroy them completely, and he has supporter, and being the strongest Mushi-tsuki, the Central Tokkan doesn't interfere with him...yet.

The google is their form of communication, protection, and recorder so they can be held accountable for their action.
Also the goggle covering the face protect their identity, since mushi is still feared and not known as existed.

I see. Thanks. (Whoever designed the goggles have weird tastes... not the writer/artist, but the person in the series).

let me remind you guys to keep manga spoilers nicely wrapped inside spoiler tags with a heading saying "read at your own risk"

i find the goggles really cool tbh ~ they all look like a part of the "eraser" organization
