Thoughts on Kino's Journey?

I'm halfway through this right now and I'm loving it. Definitely going in my top 10 favorite animes.
>>
>>123917256
Definitely the best one out of the three traveling anime (Kino, Monononononoke, Mushishishishi).
>>
>>123918064

Mushishi > Kino > Mononoke
>>
>>123918085
Kino > Mononoke > Mushishi
(Ginko > Kino > Kusuriuri however)
>>
How many novels does the anime cover?
>>
>>123918113

You're right, sorry for being a douchebag.

I loved the TV series and the LN.
>>
>>123918085
I agree with this. Mushishi really benefits from a more cohesive world. Kino is fantastic but can feel a bit like Gulliver's Travels.

>>123918152
I forgive you.

How many volumes are covered by the anime? I have B-T epubs of volumes 2 to 9 but haven't started because volume 1 only exists as an evil non-OCRed PDF full of JPG scans of pages
>>
Kino wasn't even a playable character in Dengeki Fighting Climax, and she was voiced by Aya Hisakawa for some reason. I don't think the publishers give a shit about Kino anymore.

>>123918401
There's been 1 book every October since 2004.

キノはカッコイイ!

Yeah, but the last translator for the series on baka tsuki just retired.

So who do we want to direct season 2 now that Nakamura is dead?

Satoshi Kon?

I like how many of the fights in this show are better than shows where it's actually about the fighting.

first six volumes, though it didn't adapt everything of them

>animes

Same here when I was new to watching anime. Then I realized Kino was kind of shallow and repetitive in its execution of its allegorical tales. Still like it very much, but it wouldn't crack my top 30 now.

>>123918064

Mononoke > Mushishi > Kino
>>
>>123919034
I'd say it's because those moments in Kino a portrayed a lot more realistically.
All it would of taken is one small misstep and Kino would have been killed. I like that the little mental breakdown she has at that the end of that scene too.

>>123918946
Shinbo did just fine with that one OVA, I for one welcome more fanservice

So an adaptation of Gakuen Kino?
>>
>>123919267
Shinbo has never directed Kino.The SHAFT Kino movie was directed by Nakamura.
>>
>>123919305
Gakuen Kino is insanely terrible. Guys, you have no idea.
>>
>>123919145
Not OP, but I didn't watch Kino no Tabi until I'd already seen hundreds of shows and I still loved it. It wasn't the stories so much as the atmosphere. It's an extremely watchable and rewatchable show. Like, if it came on TV I'd probably end up watching it every time even if I'd seen the episode a hundred times, like with Cowboy Bebop.
>>
What do Kino's feet smell like?
>>
>>123919336
I see nothing wrong with Inuayama Wanwan Rikutarou, you're a filthy pleb if you don't like Gakuen Kino.

It almost makes me want to travel around and see the great sights of our own world. But, you know, backlog. Also no talking motorcycle to travel with.

But I love my waifu.

To remain on topic, how difficult are the LNs to read in Nipponese? I like physical books to keep, even though I'll probably get around to reading Baka-tsuki's translations first.

You can watch anime on your smart phone while you're riding your motorcycle.

Thw writer is a weird dude so he probably has his own writing quirks.
