Yeah, it's really great.
I don't know if you're >>118165 or not, but I want to kiss you. Not sure how I thought it aired in the 2006+ range.
I remember liking it while watching, no clue how I ever stopped. I guess it's either worse than I remember or it gets terrible, because 6.5 is horrible score for MAL users.
As for the recommendations, i've watched/read them.
Hakumei to Mikochi I found to be a little boring and I dropped it (haven't read it however). Yokohama is nice, so is Mushishi. I dropped Girls' Last Tour for incredibly autistic reasons, I can't be bothered going into it.
Since you mentioned Mushishi, I thought I would say that I have also watched/read Natsume Yuujinchou, Mononoke.
Here's some more random recommendations:
