  • Kino an adventure returns!
    Kino began life as alight novel back in 2000 and had a big enough following to earn itself a small anime spot created by Studio AGCT.

    Today we see a return for this adventures young *spoiler protection* who has taken to traveling the road and staying in various locals for 3 days, as 3 days is enough time for Kino to understand the lay of the land, its people, and its history. Though we do see a ...

    This is a WONDER-FULLL anime!!! It is a BEAUTY-FULL anime!!!
    I did not realize that I had forgotten how wonderfully touching such stories could be. This is wonderful, I am going to watch the original again. The absolute favourite among anime.
    There are very few works that try to appeal to your emotions, through your intelligence. I understand it is a super-niche market, especially with the stigma anime possesses, still when such a piece comes along it ...

    the literal middle ground
    So,

    This anime is not Kino's Journey, if we are to attribute that title to the light novel it came from. Thus it's hard to give it 5 stars for basically using the same name and story, and creating the anime that does not have the same style.

    However, as a stand alone, I can see some viewers enjoying it, so it's not something that deserves 1 star.

    I do not enjoy this anime, but I think ...

  • Such a compelling story backed with a mysterious protagonist
    Loving this series. With it being such a different concept, its a story that sits outside of standard norms, hard to say really what makes this series so fun to follow!
    The short term supporting characters are very memorable in each episode, but its the protagonist whom is a very strong character and mysterious, that you can't help but to want to learn more and follow him. Each episode brings to ...

    Nice but not the original
    As someone who loves the original Kino's Journey, this seems like a watered down, more accessible version of the show. Which will be good for many people. This is way more upbeat and colorful despite the events not being any cheerier. Also Kino suddenly became kawaii for some reason.

    What really disappointed me was the colosseum episode. The 2003 show had far longer, more detailed fights and ...

    Original version is much better IMHO
    The 2003 version has a unique quality that strongly appealed to me -- close to a masterpiece IMO -- but it might be too unusual for some. This 2017 effort is more conventional in its character design, art work, and dialog. On the plus side some further stories from the light novel series will be included,

  • It's not bad so far.
    It's pretty interesting. The first episode has me hooked already! If you're not into violence you probs shouldn't watch, it's not bad, but it's still a little cringey. But you should definitely try it. [I guess 120+ characters isn't enough to fully add review so i'm just going to take my time with this review. You don't have to read the whole thing as it's just going to be a waste of time. Oh look ...

    So easy and calming to watch this enjoyable show
    Note: I never saw the original show.

    I'm not normally interested in slice'of'life shows like this, but Kino has me sold. She's a joy to simply listen to and watch as she travels the world that is so vastly differently from our own.

    From a talking motorcycle to entire countries that can travel; Kino meets interesting people that result in equally as interesting plots each episode.

    Emtpy & Stiched Together
    I havn't read any of the manga's, but so fare, this show seems like one of those where you have to read the manga to understand anything that is happening.

    But besides that, it seems like a very badly written show. The dialog is boring and seems very empty, not really giving the viewers a better understanding about the characters or the world.

    The setting seems very stitched together with ...

  • Not Something For Everyone, but Something Everyone Could Enjoy
    Kino's Journey, both the original and this version is an unusual show in that the only 'true' plot is that Kino is a traveler. It follows the title character along her journeys to different countries. To say each country is varied is an understatement. With wonderfully diverse people, concepts, beliefs, and stories it's incredibly hard to put this series down.
    There are a few slow times, but ...
