Ratings & Reviews
A Wonderful Journey
Kino's Journey is a story about exactly that, Kino's Journey. The main character, Kino, travels from country to country, taking in the sights, sounds and customs and staying for no longer than three days in each. Each episode presents a new culture for Kino to explore, each with it's own logic and reasoning and both positive and negative results. This series can really make you question some aspects of life so I recommend it to anyone who likes to read into and think the themes an anime presents. The action in this series is more psychological than actual fights (though there are a few throughout the series) and gives you more of a mental ride than an adrenaline rush but is in my opinion just as captivating all the same.
A Journey with Kino
The anime follows Kino as she travels to different countries. What it really does is provide the viewer with a passing glance at places with radically different cultures and ways of life. It lets you think about this different ideas and wonder about the places Kino visits. It is a short but enjoyable series.
Amazing Show, Not So Great Packaging
by Brandon -
This is a five star show, but unfortunately the packaging is not. What you see on the cover is not at all reflective of what she looks like in the show, the art style is very different. I think they did this to make it more appealing. What's worse though is the pictures on the discs are hardly recognizable as being from the show. I'm all for original artwork, but it's just not reflective of the content.
The show is still amazing though so I recommend owning it.
A great episodic series
by Spencer -
Kino's Journey is an interesting and semi-philosophical episodic anime. After watching it, I went back and watched some of my favorite episodes, so it does have quite a bit of rewatch value.
Classy and Philosophical
This short, but classy series follows a traveler named Kino and a talking motorcycle named Hermes as they journey from land to land, observing unique cultures and fantastic locales.
Every episode offers something unique and different, but still remains consistently philosophical.
This is one of my favorite series, and one of my highest recommendations.
