!!?? They need to invent something that called "video games"..

Double gun - double fun. Listern, Ivan. It is undojable gun. When you shoot it, bullets fly to the left and to the right of your target. You may say it is stupid, because you can't hit center of the painted circle. But in real life you shoot people, not circles. And people dodje. You may ask me, Ivan, how I know people would certainly dodje. And I say you can not not to dodje, when big, meancing and just scary-looking gun like this is pointed at you. You dodje and get a bullet. Hail to Motherland and our weapon genius! It is, allso, wery good for camping. My uncle, Fyodor, camped 50 capitalists in one round after taking position near their respawn point. In normal situation you never know, will freshly-respawned go left, or right. With this gun you don't need to guess any more. And if someone tries to dodje not left, not right, but down, you just hit him in a face with your boot.

Listen Sergei two barrel on one gun is one less gun for worker. Only dirty capitalist would put more gun on his gun to show he is greater than soviet. Then he go street of America shoot sideway from cadillac pretend he is of criminal gangster. Cannot reload both barrel fast, cry to sleep in prison at night. Pah! Waste of good metal! Good communist would break gun in half over leg, hand over half to comrade. Double the fun, true socialist way.

More like Land Of People Who Never Learn. Each previous land had something, around what it was built. Something, that can't be made in our world. Like initiation in adulthood via surgery and brainwashing in order to create ideal citisen, sciense made everyone able to hear others thoughts, etc. Here we have unearthly stupidity and dedication to an ideology. Seriosly, the whole nation(population of one town) was at it, not just some psycos. There is still one thing stupider. I just can't understand, why royal family didn't established something like "we are decdendants of God, if our family die sun wil never rise again, blah-blah.". Seriosly, those guys played simplified democracy on death sentence until there are two people left. They easly could've ate pseudoreligious bullshit of poorest quality without questioning it at all.

Why other stories, so far, looks good, and that so stupid?

 

Dafuq is that double barrelled revolver

Never watch the anime or read the novel before..

And, i wonder when will Kino actually use her guns..

Spoiler

One day, I counted the number of people killed by Kino in the novel, I stopped after getting over thirty people.

Maybe so far, but many countries are a subtle critique to human nature and politics.

 

Actually, the current chapter (5) story is quite relevant for the actual political climate on the US.

This same guy already wrote a comment about this same thing below. Just don't mind him.

ouw.. yeish~
the cover really get me.. <3

Spoiler

All the countries have rather unrealistic takes on human nature.

 

I understand it's all exaggerated to prove a point, but it creates very uneven characters, and populations that come off like illogical strawmen. Their only real purpose is proving whatever message the author is trying to make, but it's sacrificing the believability of the world to do so.

They didn't skip The Land of Majority Rule after all, God bless.

I don't know how you guys feel about this manga..
But to me, who completely stranger and never read the novel before..

This is so "Wow!!"

I hope SiberOwl keep translating this series..

I see Kino has discovered the glorious strategy of planned obsolescence.

GJ railroad company.

I meant that i hope they won't skip The Land of Majority Rule, Coliseum and The Land of Peace, not that it would end on one volume. This "to be continuted" doesn't specify anything.

Oops, misinterpreted your comment. I shouldn't have stayed up so late.

Well the first volume of the manga will be on sale next month. And... they probably want to end each manga volume with an epilogue (just as in the books?).

 

I don't think they would skip the Shizu-introduction chapter (Coliseum). This might even be the starting chapter of volume 2.

I guess the old men will get to the truth when one of them dies...

That's what I thought, but then I saw "to be cont." ...I felt relieved

I hope that's not all of the chapters from volume 1 that will be adapted, because that would be half-assed.

"three men on the rails" is my favorite Kino story. 

Especially when they ask her where she's going. She's obviously following the rails, and they came from that side, so they should have an idea of where she's headed. Are they asking because there's nothing that way?

 

I'm probably reading into it too much :V

The description greatly reminded me of a book i failed to finished. 
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

In both stories motorcycles play an important transportative role (both literally and metaphorically) but...
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is a "coming of age" story and one of personal growth.
Kino's Journey is much more an expose of social & societal foibles.
In that respect it has more in common with Guliver's Travels (albeit with less obfuscation and in a more contemporary setting).

yeah i agree

can you imagine, how many lolicons gonna get caught just in this site

I don't know about others, so at least 1.

Why is this considered mature? I've yet to see any gore or nudity (just a nice butt in short shorts)? Is it because it covers mature topics and handles them in a mature way?

It's not really mature, it's light novel after all. It may have some "mature" philosophy here and there or some "deep" messages and with how the original anime looked, many people might have gotten a wrong impression that kino is indeed mature but it isn't. Each chapter is gonna be about some weird trait, tradition, religion or rule taken to the extreme and kino trying to deal with it. And that's the point of the series, not some mature topics coverage or anything like that, just the life of stoic girl trying to forget her past and enjoy herself in the fucked up world.

 

And gore or nudity don't make series any more mature but that's just my personal opinion.

Seems legit.

Spoiler

Now I would post it somewhere near "Your favorite hentai lines" and watch the feedback.

I would think it would "trigger" a more anti-SJW response.

 

I did laugh when I read that though.
