Casshern Sins

Casshern Sins

In a dark future, the world is in ruin and everything is slowly crumbling away into dust. Humanity is almost extinct, while robots desperately seek out new parts to replace their rusting bodies. Their only hope for survival is to devour the one known as Casshern… or so they believe. Meanwhile, Casshern himself has lost all memory of his past. Why are these robots attacking him? Did he really kill the one known as Luna; the Sun that was called Moon? And why is he, alone, unaffected and undamaged by the ruin?

Both take place in a somewhat post-apocalyptic world, centering around a character that journeys around, searching for some kind of answer to the past, interacting with various characters.  Both are slow-paced and episodic and play out much the same way.

Hoping to escape their past, they live on the spaceship Bebop, but it's a dangerous business and old enemies don't forget easily.

Believe it or not, I'm going to recommend Cowboy Bebop if you liked Kino's Travels. This is mainly because of the way the story or lack thereof is presented, and the feel of each standing episode. I like the way where each episode has its own meaning, some would call this filler, but I think that each episode while disjointed from the others, adds to the whole experience.

The plot of somewhat adventure(meeting with diferent people) with peculiar setting is similar. The tone of the story which is serious overall are also similar. The calm and composed main characters together with some weird people the main characters met are also somewhat similar. Lastly the creepy/mysterious feeling at the end of each episode is quite similar

On their way they make many new friends like Oolong, Master Roshi and Yamucha – but they are not the only ones interested in making their wishes come true.

Both of these titles deal a lot with traveling to strange lands and meeting a variety of different people. Kino travels a lot for the sake of traveling; and while Dragon Ball has more action, in this movie there is an emphasis on dragon ball hunting, and to do this Goku travels just like Kino.

Durarara!!

Durarara!!

Looking for a change, Mikado moves from the countryside to bustling Ikebukuro to attend the same high school as his best friend, Masaomi. Though navigating a new school and friendships can prove tough by itself, Mikado also finds an overwhelming number of new delights and dangers in the district he now calls home. From a friendly Russian sushi bar to the violent color gangs, to even an urban legend in the form of a black motorcycle rider, each resident of Ikebukuro is unique and frightening. But the town is smaller than it seems at first, and these strange events appear to be connected. Will the growing storm sweep up the transplanted country boy and his friends or will Mikado find himself at the center of a dramatic change for Tokyo?

Durarara has a really distinct "cool" feeling, which I feel in  happens a lot of other popular shounen animes running now—a trendy fast-paced storyline littered with random wtf moments in a uniquely urban landscape. The use of technology to push the storyline further is also incrediblly appropriate in this time and age.

But what I connect to is not the feel or the look as much as the deeply philosophical episodically-unconnecting stories barely pulled together by the main character's own tale. Kino's Journey shares this with Durarara albeit to a slower tempo and more singular viewpoint. They are both very much detailed impressions about life and journey based on their almost unbelievable environments made that much more believable by the main character's reflections and the author's wise narrative (and yes, both began as light novels).

And for me, Celty and her motorcycle just reminded me way too much of Kino and Hermes for me not to write this. Ahahaha~
