Girls' Last Tour (TV)

Genres: Adventure, Slice of Life
Themes: post-apocalpytic

Plot Summary:
Quote:
Civilization is dead, but Chito and Yuuri are still alive. So they hop aboard their beloved Kettenkrad motorbike and aimlessly wander the ruins of the world they once knew. Day after hopeless day, they look for their next meal and fuel for their ride. But as long as the two are together, even an existence as bleak as theirs has a ray or two of sunshine in it, whether they're sucking down their fill of soup or hunting for machine parts to tinker with. For two girls in a world full of nothing, the experiences and feelings the two share give them something to live for.
(from manga)

A relaxing character study,whose slice of life setting is a post-post-apocalpytic world.

Going by comments on this and others sites,some viewers are expecting something rather different.

Episode 1:
I've read the manga awhile ago and have been anticipating for this ever since it was announced.

Solid start with the setting and music (I think that's one of the more noticable parts for this anime). It takes a little time to accept the character visuals imo but was easy for me. We got an adventure of two girls journeying through a strange world. I love their character chemistry so far even from the first episode.

White Fox is doing a decent job so far with producing this.

I like it overall so far.

The anime original flashback scene(the implication they were present during the war) is a bit incongruous with the girl's dialogue.

But that nitpicking aside,first episode has proved to be worth the two year or so wait since the adaption was announced.

This indeed seems rather interesting, kind of like Sora No Woto, with Mitsudomoe like character designs, and what seems to be a focus on a minimalist cast. Wait, there are only two characters in the show?! I checked the page for show, and I am not even finding it a negative, I expect this will be something different. I did enjoy the tone so far.

One thing I am finding myself so far is trying to fit pieces together, at least hoping that indeed it is as thought through as I am taking it. For one, there is a huge amount of metal structures, that environment they started off in seems rather curious for what its purpose might be to be so large. They are finding remnants of battlefields, where weapons and the like are just left littered around, and yet there are no bodies. Were battlefields cleaned to bury or dispose of bodies, weapons being of such little significance to leave them untouched? Is there something else that would mean bodies disappearing with no interest in their equipment? Or has the art for this show just thought that showing bodies would conflict with the tone too much, and thus does not come up?

I say this from the point who watched a lot of theories on fiction, and also play quite a bit of Fallout, which has a clear comparison and its share of piecing together the past by what is left behind. For instance, within the plan towards the cockpit is a pistol with several spent shells on the floor around it, implying that someone had a final stand there. Bringing the question if it was part of the crew that crashed and shot at someone (or thing) that was a threat, or someone else went on the plane after the crash and also had such a conflict towards the cockpit. Yet strangely it looks like there is a lot of loot that was left there, from weapons, explosives, and rations, but why? Am I thinking about this too hard?

@DuskyPredator

The girls are the main focus,they meet/interact with scant few others.
The structures the girls are exploring all compose one vast,mega city-industrial complex.

Your questions about remains.I really got the impression from the story so far that quite a bit of time has passed since the war ended,but would guess the author choose to not portray the remains.

Weapons laying about willy-nilly perhaps is to give reader/viewers an idea of how all encompassing and vast the war was.

I would recommend taking to Twitter and asking the author,seems to be the type who enjoys speculating about their own creation.
