Kino sets off to yet another country: Tower Country. Here all citizens work on the construction of a massive tower, without knowing what purpose it serves. The rather odd encounter with a young boy adds yet another twist to the story.

This second Kino's Journey special is simply your below average episode of Kino's Journey. She visits a country. Country is weird. Kino leaves country. I don't have much more to say about this special, but there's a minimum character requirement for reviews here so I guess we go into over-analysis mode here. I'm going to throw a spoiler warning right here as I will be spoiling this special, all of it. All 14 minutes of it.

Kino rides into a country where everyone works on building a huge tower located in the heart of the country, and nothing else. It's appropriately pointed out that there read more

Well, i'm a fan and suspicious to talk about this anime, but i'll try to not be tendentious. This special episode is very good, with light mistery, fast action scenes, and mainly that calm and serene atmosphere of Kino no Tabi. The dialogues are good too.

But i missed something about the end. The final question, that leaves the spectator wondering about similar meanings and things in our lifes, was not strong as usual. Also, the energy and excitement wasn't the same as we can see in the others episodes.

Overall, a good story, worth watching.

I did not see a review for this so I decided to write one.

I often see people confused of what order to watch anime especially when episode 00s and prequels are involved. A good rule to follow is watch them in order of date they were released, this way you will not spoil or mess up something for yourself. This episode does not contain any possible spoilers if you watched it first but I still highly suggest following that rule.

Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World - Tou no Kuni is shorter then the usual episode but the story is still welly put together, doesn't seem read more

For anyone who is a fan of Kino's Journey, this is a nice addition to the series. Being only 14 minutes in total (around 10 minutes without counting the OP and ED) there isn't much to say about it. In this OVA, Kino travels to a new country. This time it is a country that is building a giant tower. Surprisingly, within the ten minutes, Tou no Kuni manages to tell a story with almost as much depth as a full episode from the original series.

The art style and sound is very similar to the original series, so anyone who has already seen the series read more
