I am currently watching Mushrambo/Shinzo (the Japanese version), and the series starts at episode 2.
The English version of the anime has a different beginning. Why is that?

The English version does things chronologically, blending and splicing a lot of events together that were left as flash backs in the Japanese version into the beginning of the English version. So the Japanese one does kinda start at "episode 2", throwing you directly into the action and getting to the boring bits later, at least to my knowledge.
