Kino’s Journey Season 2 was one of the next series that people are eager to wait for. Kino’s Journey or also known as Kino no Tabi is a Japanese adventure sci-fi anime series. Kino’s Journey was an anime adaptation to a sci-fi light novel serial with the same title by Keiichi Sigsawa and illustrator Kouhaku Kuroboshii in 2000.
Not many people know, this anime series actually already aired in 2003 that consists of 13 episodes and an OVA episode. But later, Kino’s Journey followed up with two 30-minutes movies released in 2005 and 2007. In October 2017, Lerche Animation Studio was deciding to make a reboot for Kino’s Journey, but it can’t be said as the sequel. This reboot story has almost the same plotline as the previous one. So when exactly Kino’s Journey Season 2 will be aired on our screen?
Recap Time!: Kino’s Journey Season 1
Kino’s Journey was an anime adaptation directed by Ryutaro Nakamura and aired on satellite television in 2003. The first series contained 13 episodes. Later, Kino no Tabi or Kino’s Journey: The Beautiful World became the next title for the reboot of Kino’s Journey in 2017 and was directed by Tomoshisa Taguchi.
Kino, our main character, is a traveler and is accompanied by a motorcycle named Hermes. She travels to a lot of different places, countries, and forests. Kino tries to find the unique customs in each place and swears only to spend a maximum of three days and two nights in each place to avoid attachment that holds her from traveling. Kino believed three days was enough for her to know everything about those places.
Kino also always brings a .44 single-action revolver that she named Cannon and a .22 automatic pistol named the woodsman. Sometimes Kino catches using a pump-action shotgun and a semi-automatic sniper rifle called the Flute. Kino brings the guns and other tools such as knives for protection and hunting. So, she was capable of protecting herself during the trip.
The main theme for Kino’s Journey revolves around the phrase “The World is not beautiful, therefore it is”. What we can extract from there is, we need to sense the beauty of the world and by that, it doesn’t always mean the positive one. The world consists of brutality, loneliness, nonsense, oppression, tragedy but also cheerful, happy, cherished moments. Her journey looks like a fairy tale atmosphere.
