Kino travels to a country divided into two parts: the very clean and peaceful city, closed off from the surrounding wastelands. Kino meets a little girl in the city suffering from a disease which is constantly being researched. The girl, however, does not know just how the research is being done.

An unpredictable, yet familiar story unfolds in a calm and deliberate fashion, this 'movie' is can easily pass as another episode of the series, albeit with far superior production values.

Byouki no Kino: For You was released almost half a decade after the original series had finished. Given the long time gap, it makes one wonder whether or not a new addition to the Kino's Journey series will be as high quality as the original series. With Shaft as the new production company, it's almost guaranteed to be different.

Byouki no Kuni begins like most episodes do in the original series; Kino arrives at a new country and starts exploring. Soon though, one of the main differences is noticeable; the art style. The level of detail in each shot has increased. Kino herself now has blue-ish read more
