Kino’s No Tabi: The Beautiful World – The Animated series has been set for October 2017 release.
For those who are unaware, Kino’s Journey: The Beautiful World is an episodic anime about Kino- a person with androgynous appearance, who travels the world with a talking motor-bicycle name Hermes and refuses to stay at a place for more than three days. News of new TV adaptation came out in March.
I’ve been anticipating the release since news of it’s production came out. The original adaptation of Keiichi Sigsawa’s light novel of the same name was released in spring of 2003, and is a show close to my heart. What I’m wondering if this is going to be an reboot of the original series or if the stories from the novel that weren’t adapted would be given a chance? Or maybe this would be a mixture of both?
The art appears to be brighter than the original and while I think the previous art style suited the atmosphere of this world, I am looking forward to what this new adaptation is going to bring us.
