It’s time to return to this beautiful story about a girl and her talking motorcycle.
Earlier today, the official Kino’s Journey anime website updated with a new key visual, as well as the show’s first cast and crew members. We break the details down below:
The new visual features the titular Kino, standing against a road map. The center of the map features a fossil plastered with typewriter keys, fossils, billiard balls, and other memorabilia, as well as a wax seal that reads “The Beautiful World-“.
Tomohisa Taniguchi is directing the project at studio Lerche, with Ryoko Amisaki (Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School: Future Arc, Isshoni Sleeping: Sleeping with Hinako) providing character designs. Yukie Sugawara (Overlord, Hina Logi: from Luck & Logic) is in charge of series composition. Egg Firm is attached as a producer.
The roles for Kino and Hermes were officially unveiled:
- Kino: Aoi Yuuki
- Hermes: Soma Saito
Kino’s Journey -the Beautiful World- is slated for an October 2017 première. The series is a follow-up to 2003 anime series Kino’s Journey. Both projects adapt Keiichi Sigsawa and illustrator Kouhaku Kuroboshi’s light novel series of the same name.
The original Kino’s Journey anime was released in North America by ADV Films. The series was rescued by Section23 Films after ADV’s closure.
