I've recently finished watching this Miracle of a show, and I'm so disappointed that it took me this long to hear about it, It's been so long since I've watched a show that left me speechless, I dont think we will ever see another show like this, but I would love to be proven wrong!

If any one knows a show like this masterpiece I'm BEGGING YOU PLEASE SHARE IT !!!!!!!!

If you like reading you can try the light novels it's based on. I don't think they're quite as good as the Anime, unfortunately.

I'm planning on it, do you know where I can read it ? And are the novels fully translated ?

You can read most of it here: https://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/index.php?title=Kino_no_Tabi

Only the first volume has an official translation out, but I don't remember it being a very good one.

There's also the manga adaptation. Does some of the same stories as the anime, but also plenty of others. Pretty neat

Well that sucks, but I'll give it a shot any way since the 2017 anime and manga wasn't well received, the novels are my only choice.

I've heard that it wasn't as good as the novels but I'll give it a shot anyway, since I'm craving for more of this series!

Absolutely. There are a handful of gems found in anime first broadcasted from 2000-2007. Sadly, most of the newcomers will jump right into either shounen or the seasonal ones.

It ages like fine wine for me. Went from a top 50 anime originally, to a top 20 anime, and now its my 3rd favorite anime. Original Kino's Journey is easily one of the best anime out there for me.

I'd recommend Mushishi, Girl's Last Tour, Majo no Tabitabi (currently ongoing as of now), and xxxHolic, bro. They're some really good similar episodic multi-layered series, too.

Yes but the 2017 reboot... or was a remake? Either way, it's where's at.

Can't tell. Dropped the old version long time ago and don't either remember if they have the/a same/similar beginning or not.

I've heard bad stuff about the new adaptation, and the new manga, I'd say just watch the 2004 adaptation, or read the novel

If you loved Kino's journey THAT much, you MUST watch Girls' Last Tour. It left me speechless as it was airing to be honest.

The Kino's Journey 2017 reboot is also neat, but nothing even remotely close to the original in directing and atmosphere.

EDIT: Ok since you already watched Shoujo Shuumatsu, I'd recommend Haibane Renmei next :)

Hell yeah girls last tour was an amazing show I've enjoyed it heavily, I plan on watching haibane renmei soon, it seems to be right up my alley in terms of story and theming, if you have more suggestions I'd love to hear from you again :D

i absolutely agree. Kino's Journey is a story about Kino wandering around to different places and experiencing different things or helping different people in various situations. the charm in it lies in observing and philosophically focusing on different aspects of the stories, since there's so much that goes untold and you can figure out for yourselves. it also shows that the world can be very brutal to us at times, but that there's always a glint of hope shining in the distance and that there's so much more to explore, that there's always some good hiding behind the bad, and that the world is indeed a fascinating place to discover more about. "The world is not beautiful; therefore it is." is a statement that has stayed with me for so long, and perfectly summaries the series in a whole.

I prefer Jing King. I think Kino Journey more beautiful and has better dialog.

Yesss. I just finished watching it and I've been obsessed with it. I keep rewatching it and crying. There's just a quality about it that makes me feel like I'm in a dream. The good direction adds so much. Also I love the japanese voice acting where I can hear the actress' voice where she almost smacks her lips or it feels like too much spit has built up in her mouth. Sounds gross but her voice and acting is so perfect.

The 2017 remake lacked a soul, to put it frankly, despite the fact that it was allegedly more faithful to the LN than the original.

Yeah i agree, but still worth watching just for the heck of it.
