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.

There is no need to watch the series in order to appreciate the story, as it is fairly straightforward, yet profound.

The character artistic design is adequate, and you will find no deviation from the series. Kino is as enigmatic as ever, although Hermes seems just a read more

In my previous reviews it wasn't too prevalent that I spoil them, but this one I don't want to spoil. What little I can say about this without spoiling it would be that it's execution is immaculate. The directing, voice acting, animation, the color pallet, read more
