    A very fantastic anime.
    Kino's Journey has always been an excellent anime. It's beautifully drawn and well scripted. I like strong female leads without chauvinism.


    I really hate being told to leave a longer review.

    An odd sense of Deja Vu
    Honestly I felt like I had watched this before somehow. It was the weirdest thing, turns out I have back around 2003/2004. While I can say the atmosphere in this seems a bit brighter I figure it is mostly because of the advances in artwork in the 14 years between development cycles. Speaking of, the artwork in this show is fantastic focusing on vast landscapes that are incredibly detailed. For ...

    This is a beautifully done introspective journey that really make you think.
    Kino's on a journey with his talking motorcycle, named Hermes. I would lose interest there if it weren't for the superior animation, the beautiful visuals, and the good voice acting. I'm glad I stayed. The first story is intriguing about her visiting a land where there is no law against murder. This one agreed to closely with the NRA's viewpoint to be comfortable, but it made me think. She ...

    Really, Kind of Boring
    It seems like I have seen this on before, back in the eighties. Only the MC was David Hasslehoff the ride was a talking car. The concept is like someone got Knight Rider and Quantum Leap confused and made the lead a girl just to sell merchandise. Besides all of that the pacing is slow and the dialog is boring.

    Beautifully Done Without Question
    If you're looking for something more upbeat, this really isn't the anime for you. That said, I think this anime is going to be the one I'm most excited about each week. It was one of the few that I was most curious about to start with and the one that immediately had me interested in seeing where the story goes without any reservations after one episode.

    Review in Progress - Previous Series / Episode 1 Review
    I was drawn to the original series, Kino no Tabi, because it was directed by Ryutaro Nakamura. Nakamura directed Serial Experiments: Lain, and I generally have not gone wrong by following his works (or the works of Lain artist Yoshitoshi ABe or writer Chiaki J. Konaka for that matter).. It does not seem that anyone involved with the original anime adaptation of Kino's Journey is involved with this ...

    Simple and relaxing road trip
    From the first episode of this I feel like I'm kinda just sitting there taking a road trip. It does well in how everything is presented to give this feel in my opinion at least. It seems like there can be more interesting things develop, but from the first episode so far I'm pleasantly looking forward to seeing more and where things go...oddly looking forward to seeing what places are brought up ...

    Seems to be living up to the original
    After one episode I think I can safely say that this version is going to be every bit as good as the original anime. Kino is a little bit more feminine in this one, but not much. The calm and thoughtful atmosphere carries through. I am looking forward to this one.

    Mixed feelings on this one
    So, like many people have said already, the animation is beautiful. In addition to this, I really enjoyed the story of the town and its people. However, the complete lack of personality or endearing qualities in Kino left me unsure of whether I even want to continue to episode 2. If I do continue and the problem persists, I’d rate the show 2.5 stars and chalk it up to poor writers. It is really ...

  • The title doesn't lie, but it does hide deception :)
    For those of you who've watched other anime adaptations by Lerche, you know that they have a tendency to work on projects with messed up stuff going on (and typically lots of violence). This beautifully animated show continues their trademark style and gives you a fantastic glimpse into some dark parts of the human psyche. Just like with Magical Girl Raising Project, the art style belies the kind ...
