Akari's training as a gondolier at the prestigious Aria Company continues. Of course for Akari, the difference between training and just having fun is sometimes nonexistent! She and the rest of the "A-Team" face new adventures in the crooks and crannies of the city: hunting down an elusive treasure, looking for a secret conclave of cats, or just helping out the postman. This time with double the chibis and triple the punyuus, Akari and friends learn more about how life goes on at its leisurely pace, to the lazy beat of Neo Venezia.
Pouring a perfect cocktail is a difficult feat, but one bartender, Ryuu Sasakura, is such a master of his craft that his drinks are renowned worldwide. No matter what challenges are thrown his way, Ryuu takes the time to get to know his customers and serves them the most helpful concoction for their joys and sorrows. With a calm demeanor and caring heart, this skilled bartender will do whatever it takes to make his clientele, and colleagues, happy.
Bartender is a show that gives you the same sort of calm, stress-relieving experience YKK does, but in a different, more interesting way. Lots of the scenic shots have been replaced with great dialogues and jazzy soundtrack that will make you able to sit back, relax and forget the worries of everyday life for a few moments.
A photograph is a mysterious force that creates magical moments the instant the shutter closes and allows people’s hearts to connect. For the new girl in town, Fuu Sawatari, this is more than a saying but a way of life as she spends her days quietly attempting to capture those special instances on film and use them to bring others joy. Along with her friends – and her beloved camera – Fuu reminisces about her father, begins to contemplate where her future lies and wonders whether she can capture more of the mysterious Tamayura light bubbles in her photos filled with warmth and friendship.
In another world, there exist many countries, each with different cultures, customs, and traditions. From technological marvels to folk legends, each location yields a vast wealth of insight of its people: their hopes and their dreams, their failures and fears. Kino is a traveler whose goal is to visit as many new places as possible, learning about others' ways of life, but also making sure to stay clear of their affairs. Together with the talking motorrad Hermes, Kino sets out to explore the beautiful world and meet its inhabitants, wherever they may be.
YKK and Kino no Tabi both have a very sombre feeling all throughout and are quite episodic in nature. Both also focus on qualities of the human nature, albeit in different situations. If you like the "life goes on" kind of feeling, then these two complement each other very well.
It isn't unusual for a person to feel that the world around them is strange and has unexpected secrets lying just beyond their sight. However, for most people this is just an occasional sensation that greets them upon awakening or chases them into sleep. For the mushi researcher Ginko, it isn't a feeling at all; it is a knowledge which guides his travels and motivates his life. Found in the cracks between what is conceivable and what is not, are the varied life forms collectively known as mushi. They surround us and affect us, but their intensely different nature makes them unrecognizable to most. Ginko brings these life forms into perspective for the lives of those most affected and most in need of an explanation.
