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.

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.

Seems legit.

Chapter name is a lie. I failed to see Pain around here.

That's not fanservice. What would be considered fanservice is the typical "walking out naked from the shower with the towel conveniently covering the nipples" scene.

 Showing Kino's ass was very important plotwise? I doubt it.
I really liked how they handled it in the anime, but if you want to think that fanservice is limited to nudity - that's your choice, whatever.LYBOIZsdHOY.jpg

Not every fan-service need to be that blatant, and Kino in short shorts is good enough

Mmmm, that's some nice fan service.

We will continue to release Kino's Journey on Batoto, despite Sense-Scans picking it up. This series is beloved by both me and SiberOwl. That's why there is a certain level of quality we wish to maintain. Sense's release glosses over nuances and is not especially well typeset. I am not trying to be condescending. I am just attempting to justify the reason we won't relinquish the series. Thanks for understanding and reading!

私がキノと名乗る旅人と出会ったのは十一歳の時だ。
Sense: I first became the traveller named Kino when i was eleven years old.
Your translation: I was eleven years old when i met a traveler named Kino.

I know you were trying not to be too harsh with that translation, but it wasn't just "glossing over nuances", it was just wrong in some places. 

There's some SCP-tier shit going on in Kino if you think about it
