For my first anime review  I have chosen a loved but little known series call “Kino’s journey”.  Just as the title suggest, the show revolves Kino a traveller that wonders a unique and sometime eccentric world. Rather than having a overall story for the entire series, each episode of Kino’s journey is a self-contained story usually having Kino interacting with locals and discovering more about the country she(yes, Kino is a girl) is in. The beauty of this series is that none of the countries are the same. Each country has its own culture and beliefs. In episode 1 Kino ventures into a country where  inner thoughts of its inhabitants are visible to everyone, which forces the people to live apart from each other. There are many strange  and interesting countries that capture the viewers full attention throughout the series. There are also times in the story which shows the dangers travelling can be . There are several times in the show when Kino will unknowingly wander into dangerous situations. In a 2 part episode in the middle of the series, Kino is forced to compete in a gladiatorial style tournament in which the winner may create  a new law for the country she is in. although these dangerous situations are usually brief, it still is enough to put you on the edge of your seat.

 

overall, Kino’s journey is a great series for those who are just stepping into the world of anime. the story is not deeply rooted in hardcore anime   culture or japanese cultrue so any person can pick it up and enjoy it.I would highly recommend picking up this series.
