What does /a/ think about Kino's Journey? I went in expecting YKK+Haibane Renmei and so far it's been
Masterpiece, the Book episode was pretty trippy.
Yeah, but folktales are usually something that is talled, while anime is visual medium which automatically conveys more information. What works in fairy tales or legends must not necessarily work in anime.
I'm not saying I didn't like it either, but it sometimes felt a bit "empty" to me. Maybe the LNs would work better. I think the content might be something that is better told than shown.

She's still popular enough to make it in that Dengeki Bunko fighting game, if only as an assist.

The fact that the LN sells fairly well even now doesn't help either.
