Prologue is you missed it: http://bato.to/reader#78eee96635f187a1
Oh sweet that's exactly what I imagined Kino looking like when I read it. I dunno where the anime got this from.
Well it's not exactly what I had in mind. I basically thought he would look like Lawrence from S&W, except much thinner and a bit more tired and weary.
Yeah I disagree with how bishounen the manga makes him, but it's close enough to please me.
Depends on who is the character designer of the anime.
I would love for the new adaptation to use that subtle striped texture the original had.
It won't happen though.
What do you think Kino would do if she went to a land that did the same thing or something similar and met a kid there that was in the same position as her?
Leave them to their fate? Take them?
Hence the word 'potential'. They may or may not, but who knows at this point. Kino's origin is pretty much an open-secret. The only thing I'm afraid of is if they decide to go full shounen with it.
I can't stay to finish reading, but thanks anon for dumping.
When I watched this a few years ago I thought the stories fascinating and deep, but looking at this chapter here each city Kino sees is really constructed on simplistic and, as in this case, moralistic lines. If the new anime wants to improve on its plot it's going to need to be able to create a very powerful atmosphere for you to lose yourself in.
There is a chance we get more info about that next week with the Anime Japan 2017.
>A manga adaptation of Kino's Journey, drawn by Iruka Shiomiya, began serialization in the April 2017 issue of Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge released on March 17, 2017. A second manga, with art by Gou, will begin serialization in the July 2017 issue of ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Daioh magazine to be released on May 27, 2017.[
Thanks for the dump.
I really hope that they will hire Ai Maeda again for the new anime, i can't imagine Kino without her voice.
Almost all of the stories are incredibly simple and have an obvious moral to them. In fact, I think most of them could be considered parables. That's part of the appeal to some people.
>Seeing how the new manga is a reboot, anything is possible.
A reboot of what, dude? This is the very first Kino no Tabi manga. It's just adapting the novels. Did you want them to only do chapters the anime didn't cover? That would make no sense.
Please tell me that the threads for the new adaptation aren't going to be people who have never read the source material whining endlessly about how the new anime isn't a carbon copy of the 2003 adaptation.
I haven't read the source material, and I know the 2003 anime isn't the only right way to adapt it. I also think that, while it would be nice if it took some cues from the old anime, the original director has already died and trying to simply copy his style would probably just result in a cheap imitation. That said, the new anime really needs to nail the atmosphere for it to be good, regardless of how they want to approach that. Also, I'm not a fan of Shaft's movie so I hope it's better than that at least.
>A reboot of what, dude?
Of the story. It didn't adapt the 2003 anime, making it clear that the new anime will be more of that, but instead adapted the Ln on its own. So the new anime could be a reboot.
It's really unfortunate that the original director for the 2003 series passed away, he really nailed the atmosphere perfectly.
I really hope we get some info from AJ. I'm dying to know the studio, the staff and whether this is a reboot or a sequel.
Oh god, why does Hermes's voice sound like what fucaboi here >>154783812 would sound like? Honestly, I feel like Hermes's voice would be better suited for Shizu or the talking dog. No comment on Aoi Yuuki's voice since I know she's talented, but will need to hear more of her as Kino before making my decision.
I probably think it would be SHAFT since they did the most recent OVA in 2007 and she is sometimes shown in their collaborate artworks.
Since the publisher decided to launch not 1 but 2 manga series of Kino's Journey, they wouldn't skimp on the anime adaptation.
It's not that I dislike Hermes' new voice, but shouldn't there be a filter to his voice or something, to make it sound like the voice is coming from a machine? He sounds like a 100% normal person there.
It's not about the voice itself, but how it sounds. This Hermes sounds like his voice is coming from a person right next to Kino, instead of coming from a machine. You'd think there'd be a filter for his voice there, since the voice is coming from a "closed" space.
I would, unironically, think Kyoani should tackle it. Kino is all about the atmosphere, which I think they can handle very well. In addition, all the weird old technology stuff and fantasy elements are also up their alley. Also, because there's a good chance they would adapt Magical Girl Kino as a bonus ala Fumoffu.
Eh, I mean, isn't that suppose to be the point? Hermes talks like a normal person, which makes his seemingly cold dialogue stand out that much more. He can nonchalantly talk about Old Kino dying without missing a beat, and doesn't particularly seem to care about all the seemingly messed up shit that new Kino has gone through, or care if new Kino has just murdered everyone and just wants an oil change.
Not that I've read ALL the stories but it hasn't in any translated stories and I doubt it has in any untranslated ones. Pretty sure anything having to do with original Kino is done at this point.
Are you actually reading my posts before replying?
But that was 10 years ago. I wouldn't mind it being Shaft if it ends up being as good as 3-gatsu.
I feel like there's no way that would happen, Kyoani are too busy adapting their own shitty LN's or random manga series. This year they'll be busy with a new Free movie and probably Violet Evergarden. Next year they'll probably be adapting LN's from their contests.
I've read it. And I'm saying Hermes doesn't need a filter. Letting him talk like a normal person next to Kino is perfectly fine since he's a talking motorad, to which we have zero idea how it fucking works.
>named after a flower found around her country
>sakura flowers are red and grow in the ground
Pretty sure it's supposed to be five x's, like xxxxx.
I liked this version of Kino.
Manga's looks like just scrawny Ginko.
Sakura was Aoi's first role as a professional seiyuu. She was 13 at the time.
Sigsawa told her a few years ago during a Dengeki event that if they were to work on a new anime project he wanted her to voice Kino.
>Sigsawa told her a few years ago during a Dengeki event that if they were to work on a new anime project he wanted her to voice Kino.
Huh, I wonder what it's gotta be like going back working on the franchise that started your career?
I would laugh if they somehow got Ai Maeda to voice Master (old).
Really, those are the only red five-letter flowers that are popular. Tulips don't look like any of the flowers in Kino's home country. Daisies and poppies kinda do, but there aren't any clear official images of said flowers.
Daisy -> ???
Poppy -> Poopy
Tulip -> ???
They probably did the CYOA audio drama (later animated on NND) to test the waters to see if there was interest. How many people participated in that anyway?
What about the little girl named after Kino? And I'm not talking about Kino, I mean Kino.
>both are called sakura and get bullied
>both have a hoteltype home
>both dont take their parents advice
>one doesnt do what she actually wanted to -> runs away -> lives
>one does what she wanted to -> stays ->dies
Really makes me think
I really like the art, somewhat reminiscent to me of Horikoshi Kouhei, but that might be just me. I think I got about what I expected from manga adaptation.
But I dislike some of the design choices like twink fuckboi Kino.
Those details on Hermes, though
>Kino says "fuck the rules" and sacrifices his/her life to save a cute loli -> Kino dies and loli lives
>Kino doesn't say "fuck the rules" and doesn't sacrifice his/her life to save a cute loli -> Kino lives and loli dies
Shit, Kino had the chance to save a loli (potentially at sacrificing her own) but told the kid "lol no" and driving off. Really, the only way to save lolis is through bloodshed. You're not even guaranteed they're grateful because they might try stabbing you to death afterward (coughcoughShizucoughcough).
Life found a way to shit on his life before he received a loli and it found ways to shit on his life after he received a loli.
Especially when anime adaptations are supposed to sell the LN's.
The old show is more than a decade old, while the LN's still have new volumes written every year.
Kino barely has enough food for herself though. And riding with two people on a motorcycle doesn't seem like it'd last very long. She really had no choice but to leave.
It's easier for Shizu, who already travels with someone who can help hunt and has a buggy.
If there's one thing I really do hope they do is animate Master's, Shizu's, and maybe even Camera's stories too, along with Kino's. Though, I think having to listen to a loli recite a village name for five minutes straight is too avant garde. Good pay off and it really would drive in the impact with the twist, but man, good luck to whatever 11-13-year old they make say all that from memory.
That and Master has really drilled in the lesson of self-preservation into Kino. Old Kino had died to the same exact circumstances, she would be tempting fate if she tried to do the same.
Hard to call it a prequel when the chronology is all over the place.
Since most episodes are self contained you don't really need to watch any previous material to understand what's happening. I do expect them to re-adapt the land of adults for newer viewers though.
Wasn't that when she was still young and under Master's tutelage?
Also kissing Kino.
Sexier, as in I would lock tongues with Kino while sharing a sleeping bag with her in the nude. To share warmth, of course.
Kino is not for loving or for sexual.
I ain't kidding you, anon.
Textless version for volume 20's images when?
