So-Ra-No-Wo-To

So-Ra-No-Wo-To

Kanata Sorami, a young Private in the army, arrives in Seize to serve in the Clocktower Fortress and learn the trumpet under the tutelage of Master Sergeant Rio Kazumiya. Though peace hangs uneasily over the world, Kanata finds a relaxing routine of laundry, shopping, and trumpet practice greets her at her new post instead of brutal drilling and discipline. With help from the other members of the all-female 1121st Platoon, Kanata finds her place in the bustling city, bringing joy and humor to the war-weary residents while learning a great deal about the world.

Both series feature a strong-willed young woman in a leading role. Though So-Ra-No-Wo-To's Kanata is far more obviously female than her counterpart in Kino no Tabi, both retain a genderless innocence as they learn about the culture of their fascinating settings - creating a new moral every episode, in a melancholy yet somehow optimistic vision of their Beautiful World.

These are both about female wandering warriors. They have strong senses of character and tend to ponder things rather than judge them. Kino gets less involved with the people she meets than Balsa does, who has decided to save lives. However, despite their differences both have an overall slow pace, but get action packed occasionally.

Tsubasa Chronicle

Tsubasa Chronicle

The power to cross over dimensions is one that is deeply coveted -- a lesson that childhood friends Sakura and Syaoran learn the hard way when an unknown enemy attacks an archaeological dig in their country.

In order to save Sakura's life, she and Syaoran must journey to various worlds in search of her memories, with the help of fellow travelers, Fai and Kurogane. But finding Sakura's memories won't be easy, and the price for traveling through time and space is high...

Well, if you like either Tsubasa Chronicles or Kino's Journey, you will like the other. Both of them are about a person who travels from country to country or from world to world. If you like short arcs based on different settings, these are perfect to watch. Kino's Journey is slightly more moral based however. Both have really powerful main characters. Kino even looks slightly like Syaoran.

It's not an obvious recommendation at first, but the ideas linking these two series are rather similar. Both feature a young protagonist forced into a journey between cultures, and both play with ideas of identity and of war. The confusion between the characters of Diana Soriel and Kihel Heim is similar to the confusion Kino feels as she takes on the name of the man who inspired her. And more importantly, both show death and suffering to be an inevitable part of human life, which should be seen as something beautiful regardless.
