A stage event at the Dengeki Game Festival 2017 event in Tokyo revealed on Sunday that Keiichi Sigsawa's Kino no Tabi - the Beautiful World (Kino's Journey) light novel series is getting a new television anime project.
Sigsawa began serializing Kino's Journey in ASCII Media Works' Dengeki HP in 2000, and Kadokawa shipped the 20th volume (pictured at right) in October. The novel was adapted into a 13-episode anime in 2003, and movies premiered in 2005 and 2007. Sigsawa also published a spinoff series of novels titled Gakuen Kino about Kino as a high school girl from 2006 to 2011. A manga adaptation of Gakuen Kino launched in Dengeki G's Festival Comic in 2010.
The story follows the travels of Kino, a young adventurer who rides a talking motorcycle named Hermes. They explore the people and cultures of different places throughout their adventures, spending only three days at each location.
