The original was so enchanting, I can't wait to see what they do with this.

Well the casting confirms they're remaking the coliseum story (as evidenced by the presence of Shizu and Riku).
I mean, the casting of Ti basically negates that reasoning. Shizu and Riku are key players in that story. That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if we got a Colosseum arc either way (I doubt they would find a different way to introduce Shizu as a character).

This news doesn't really say much. As far as the concerns I have for this show, the strength of the supporting cast ranks pretty low.

I'd like to know if this is going to be a direct sequel or a reimagining of the original. Either way, as long as they maintain the understated, thought-provoking nature of the original, I think this series will be a highlight of the season. Does anyone know when the PV will release?

I'm still hyped, but I'm so used to Kino's Journey looking and sounding subtle and understated, or for lack of a better term, low budget. It just fits with the storybook feel of the series, or at least that's the perception that I've grown really accustomed to over the years. Glad to hear that the new season is still moving forward, but I really have no idea what to expect.

The cast seems fine enough. Personally, I just want a trailer to see how the Animation is. Kino was really about exploring different places. And I would love to see those places in the newer animation style.
