  • Great modernization of the concept of Kino
    As someone who has watched the original 2004 Kino series and has met Keiichi Sigsawa in person, I can safely say that this iteration of Kino is great for what it is: a more modern take on the stories of Kino and Hermes. The old 2004 anime focused on keeping the feel of the source material, which tends to be thought-provoking and sometimes trippy. Kino 2017 manages to keep that focus while also ...

  • A unique and original short story collection
    Ray Bradbury. That's the author this series reminded me of again and again. Fantastical, tight, focused, sometimes brutal short stories, winding around each other. While enjoyed the overall arc of the season, there's something satisfying about some of the very final, and occasionally very surprising endings that each visit came to.

  • This needs more episodes.
    I liked this anime. The concept of motorrads is pretty cool. I feel like there are a lot more countries to be explored. Also, I'd like to know where the prince and the girl and the talking dog end up. A second season would be great.

    The art is solid and the scenery is beautiful.

This anime will make you feel as if you are missing something without another season. A truly amazing and heartwarming story, with a bit of murder, that ...

  • Philosophical Adventure
    Kino's journey is a tale of the human condition. Each country Kino visits is a new philosophical puzzle where the ethical conditions in which man lives is put to the test. These puzzles raise the questions: can man really live in solidarity with others under his own self-constructed rules and laws? Can man really be happy without the law? Can the survival of one nation at the detriment of another ...

    I Felt Like I was Missing Something
    Was I supposed to watch something before this? I tried watching a few episodes and was honestly lost. It was sort of a whimsical series, it had a really gentle but somewhat serious air to it, but I didn't feel like I was really understanding the story itself.
