Girls' Last Tour Blu-ray
About Girls' Last Tour Blu-ray
Girls' Last Tour contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Takaharu Ozaki.
The world we knew is gone. The massive cities, once filled with people, lie silent, empty and decaying. There are no more forests filled with animals; no more birds in the sky. But life hasn't disappeared completely; not just yet.
Amidst the rubble two small figures, young girls, travel together, scavenging what they need to survive as they explore the remnants of a world that they are too young to remember. It's a strange journey, but one that's filled with wonder as each new day brings another discovery, another echo of the devastated past or moment of unexpected beauty. And as long as Chito and Yuuri have each other, they have a reason to keep pressing forward. As long as there's still life, there's still hope for a future.

Ratings & Reviews
Faithful and Fun
This is a very relaxing series to watch. It's a slice-of-life and comedy, but has an underlying tone of seriousness as well. It's very enjoyable and will almost assuredly make you smile at least a few times.
The anime is extremely faithful to the source material. This is the only series where I have read the manga before watching the anime, and I was very happy with the finished product. They go so far as to exactly recreate some of the camera angles of many scenes from the manga. The credits animation is also drawn by the original author/artist of the series.
The animation also does a very good job of maintaining the artist's original style. It's animated by White Fox, so the quality is high. My only complaint with the animation is the CGI. Though limited, it looks really out of place. Very few series use CGI well, but it's much better than some more recent series' use of CGI.
*cough* Overlord *cough*
It's definitely worth a watch, and I'd recommend it to anyone who asked.
one word to describe this: amazing.
this show is a lot like made in abyss but more heart warming. this is an anime you will not regret having on your shelf no matter how many you have watched or own. the music really sets the tone for the entire show and the animation, storyline and voice acting all hit the mark. I HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS ANIME! you wont be disappointed.
Happy to be hopeless

This is an iyashikei anime - but the scenery and world are bleak, and bad things keep happening. There's no hope left in the world. But the characters embrace that hopelessness and take meaning from small, beautiful moments within it.
Very calming / relaxing to watch.
Might as Well Smile . . . It's Hopeless anyway!

This is a fantastic show. Two girls and a dying world, dripping with atmosphere. If you have not yet checked out this gem of a show, dew it. And, if you have, and you are looking to add this show to your collection, this Bu-ray is an excellent snag.
I was able to grab it on sale, which was lovely. I know there is a limited edition set of this show, but I really wasn't interested on all of the bonus features that set offered. All I wanted was the show, and this Blu-Ray delivered that. All twelve episodes on two discs, and clean opening and closing animations. There are also Japanese promos and commercials, if that tickles your fancy!
Overall, I am happy with this purchase, and I am glad that "Girls' Last Tour," is part of my collection.
Beautiful and Somber
The whole show is about two sisters traveling across a lifeless world, looking for food and fuel so they can keep going. Their ultimate destination isn't fully known to either one of them, possibly somewhere where there are people, but that's unlikely. They just keep on going, taking a tour of the remnants of what's left of humanity. This sounds like a pretty bleak story, and it is, but it's more about the human drive to survive and keep going. The characters discuss various philosophical and abstract ideas like life after death, and other questions one might raise during their lifetime.
This show is not for everyone. I'm sure people would say that it's pretty slow and kinda boring, and depressing of course. Though it is those things in a way, I found it so be quite a nice, and at many points, beautiful story. It gives me a meditative calm similar to the shows "Mushishi", and "Kino's Journey", so if you like those you might like this.
