Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou, Kemurikusa (TV) Recommendations
Small groups of people travelling a desolate and destroyed world nearly entirely devoid of any life. They both feature very dark imagery and themes, but laced with cutesy characters that contrast with these themes wonderfully. The worlds themselves are treated as characters here, and are a treat to explore. Bundle that with superb music and memorable character building and you've got two of the finest post-apocalyptic stories out there. Just be aware of Kemurikusas occasionally lackluster animation.
A bunch of girls moving slowly through a lifeless and dark post apocalypse trying to unravel its mysteries. Less philosophic and more super natural but the same feel.
To me, this anime has a similar feel as Girls' Last Tour. Both exploring a post apocalyptic world. They experiment with what they find, but for the most part, they are so focused on surviving that they don't wonder too much about the world around them. Girls' Last Tour had better art and a bigger budget. I thought the characters were better too. It was also was a slice of life. Kemurikusa has a lot more action and danger. The story is more simple too. Idk how to explain it.
both were set in some post apocalyptic future where mankind has disappeared from the face of the earth and all whats left were a few pockets of people whom were searching for purpose in life, However in Kemurikusa the only living thing alive were a bunch of Red Headed anthropomorphic plants whom were fighting for survival, while in Shoujo Shuumatsu the only two girls were just roaming around as if they're still on a mission even when the war is over and the society structure as long collapsed.
Both take place in a post apocalyptic world. Both casts are mostly female characters as they travel from place to place.
