Understanding and treasuring lives of living things as well as non-living things. These two journeys show us how we shouldn't take things for granted and how precious things will become which we only realized it when we are desiring it. You should walk with the protagonist(s) and observe their slow-paced journey. Each episode is carefully pieced and progressed to arrive at a final 'destination'. They have a lot of similarities although in a different world concept, so take your time and enjoy the two shows.

The main characters of the animes loves their bike they both have a talking bikes (well just baita in bakuon) They both is a slice of life anime

They both have that slice of life episodic feel. Meeting different regions of people. Not having much of a backbone of a story but the story of each encounter.

Both have young protagonists adventuring the world with a weird companion. The story structure is similar in that they both have self contained stories that are resolved in one to two episodes but Kino no Tabi is more serious.

They both have beautiful world building, and gorgeous, vibrant animation. Both tend to be quite philosophical at times (of course, Kino no Tabi more than Mahoutsukai), and have a very serene feel. Even though they're different in a lot of ways, they share the same sort of atmosphere, and are both about seeing the beauty in a confusing and often painful world. There is a lot more character development and overall plot in Mahoutsukai (Kino no Tabi is episodic), but if you like one, I'd encourage you to give the other a try. XD

Both of these series have filled me with a desire to explore the world. I love finding out about each new layer of the Abyss, and all the rules and dangers that come with it. I also love seeing each new country shown by Kino or Shizu.

They are similar in aspect that both are adventure anime in which the main 2 characters go from country/city to country/city, meeting new people on their journey. The biggest difference between the two is that Spice and Wolf also features a romantic plot between the main 2 characters.

Exploring a new world, which follows different rules from ours, in an episodic format is what the two series are about. In Hakumei to Mikochi we are introduced to the world of small creatures(everything from ants to 9 centimeters tall humans) and in the meantime Kino no Tabi presents us a world with a lot of different countries, each with it's own philosophy on living a good life.

They give off the same vibe, it's hard to explain but there's a new story episode, both have young teenagers taking a responsibility due to hardships through their childhood. If you like one you'll probably like the other

I guess I'll reiterate my recommendation from the original; Both revolve around traveling, gunslinging and touches into philosophical stories about the human condition. In a world that can be cruel, and yet beautiful at the same time, both shows do a great job at portraying this concept. Where henceforth; "The world is beautiful because of the people you meet along the way. They are what shape the world that we live in".
