  • Thank you Danmachi for introducing me to this show
    I love psychology and 'what if' situations, and this anime is basically that with a beautiful setting and awesome characters. I was skeptical at first, but I binged the entire series in a day because I just fell in love with the world these characters were going through. The anime advertises a journey, and it really is a journey to watch this show.

  • A Beautiful Anime for Dreamers and Sociologists
    Kino's Journey: The Beautiful World is a heavily allegorical anime about human nature. Each episode is its own short story, and each shines light on both the good and the bad which is to be found in the human heart. Speaking of heart, this anime has it in spades, along with originality, hope, and meaning. One of the best anime in years for those of us who are longing for the kind of magic that ...

  • Casual, wonderful story about travelling a fantastic world
    It's a wonderful anime about travelling. Only a little bit story is told, so it's really casual and easy to follow. The scenery sometimes makes you wonder and the societies of the different countries are especially good designed. A wonderful tale about the wonderful landscapes and countries and the psychology of societies.

  • Beautiful Animation and intriguing stories
    I was instantly blown away by the animation and art direction. The main character Kino is very stoic and mysterious. I enjoyed some of the episodes more than others and each seems to have a deeper philosophical meaning behind it. Definitely can recommend this anime even though some of the stories can be a little cliche and predictable.

  • 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.

  • An Awesome Adventure Anyone Can Enjoy!
    Its a breath of fresh air from any other anime. When I first saw this anime I thought, "Oh how boring, its about traveling..." But really, it is a enjoyable, fast paced, strait to the point anime, full of likable characters and beautiful artwork. 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 ...
