With the home video release for the Kino’s Journey -The Beautiful World- series out there for a bit now in North America, German distributor KSM Anime is getting in on the game. They’ve put out a German-language trailer for it that showcases what the dub is like ahead of its September 2nd, 2019 debut. The 100 euro set contains the complete twelve episode series in a heavy chipboard box in bilingual form with German subtitles. It comes with a 24-page character booklet, a mini-stand, a 28-page story guide booklet, and two stickers. On-disc extras include the previews, trailer, gallery, and clean opening and closing sequences.

Check out our review of the series.

The show has Tomohisa Taguchi directing based on the series composition by Yukie Sugawara. Ryoko Amisaki is on board for the character designs with Lerche handling the animation production. The two leads are made up of Aoi Yūki as Kino and Sōma Saitō as Hermes.

The series features the opening song “Here and There” by Nagi Yanagi and the closing theme song “Satōdama no Tsuki” by also by Nagi Yanagi.

The light novels began back in 2000 and there are twenty volumes out as of last fall. A TV series was done back in early 2013 along with two feature films.

Plot Concept: “Kino’s Journey -the Beautiful World-” is a story about Kino, who travels around the world with nothing but her guns (for protection) and talking motorcycle Hermes (for company). Kino travels to many mystical lands, each with its unique customs and people, and learns about the world through their stories, at some times conjuring humor and inspiration or other times piercing cynicism. However, Kino has her own custom, to stay no longer than three days in every town without exception, as she believes it is enough time to learn almost everything important about the place while still leaving time to explore new lands.
