Kino's Journey

Plot: Kino is a traveler. She goes from country to contry on a talking motorcycle called Hermes. In each country, she observes the people and their customs, many times courting dangers. But no matter what happens, she only stays for three days. Then she continues on to wherever her journey next takes her... (B+)

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity

Other: This is a very unusual series in that there isn't a main villain or love interest, neither is there an involved plotline culminating in a battle between good and evil or a fairytale ending where the girl marries the guy of her dreams. It's the tale of a traveler and the adventures she has, which often takes on a type of dark, ironic humor. An interesting anime, all in all. But I wish they would've explored Kino's past a bit more.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 3/5
