Not Worth It

by

This is less a review of the product than it is of the series. This particular adaptation is less of a faithful adaptation as it is a "Best of" collection. Unfortunately, this is detrimental to future, more faithful adaptations. Additionally, the conspicuous use of bad CG renders the show unappealing to watch. I would highly recommend skipping this release.

A Great and Underrated Series

by

The product itself is in great condition, nothing to complain about. It's a semi-remake of the original 2003 series (which is also good), as some of the episodes are new and others aren't there. The art style and voice actors have changed, which might bother some, but I felt like they still captured the essence of the show.

As for the series itself, it's a wonderful hidden gem. The animation is beautiful with a lot of attention to detail. Some of the CG effects look a little off, but there so few of those moments that it's barely noticeable. Mellow and thought provoking stories are told in each episode, most of them being non-sequential, though there are a few episodes that connect. Some might be put off by the slow pacing but I found it to my liking as it feels like the show wants to give you time to let events sink in.

If you like anime that takes its time to establish atmosphere and prioritizes story over action, then I'd highly recommend this great series.

Just as good as the original show

by -

It's a great show that has an excellent story to tell especially when the MC is all about traveling.
