Destination is a state of mind.
Kino is a traveller. A drifter.
A slight and dark figure perched atop an internal combustion companion, learning the whims of mankind one sin at a time.
Kino is a witness. A dry and focused, all-focused eye calmly soaking in a myriad of decisions, interpretations and the actions based upon them.
Kino is a survivor. A wielder of cutlery, firepower and a piercing tongue.
A connoisseur of silence, a harbinger of luck, and a smooth master of knowing when to disappear.
Kino is alone.
Drift along for the ride.

Classification of fantasy and reality is itself a fantasy that humans created…Life begins when you make a disctinction between yourself and others. From that moment on, the world becomes a stage for the story in which you are the main character. All humans live in a fantasy in which they are the main character. But the world doesn’t recognize you as the main character at all. What nonsense. Everyone lives their entire life tormented by this confusion. There’s only one way out of this hell. To place yourself in a postion that is neither the main character nor a supporting role. In other words, the Author.

- Kino’s weapon of choice, “The Cannon” is a custom Colt 1851 Navy London Model revolver. It is described as firing .44 caliber bullets (as opposed to the 1851’s normal .36 caliber bullets) and uses “liquid gunpowder”. Kino is also seen detaching the loading lever from the front of the barrel and using at as a foregrip when using a specialized, high-power round.
- Kino’s secondary weapon is a custom Colt Woodsman Match Target referred to as “The Ranger”. It features a threaded barrel for the addition of a sound suppressor, and a laser sight has been built into the weighted compensator. Kino keeps it in an IPSC holster behind her back.
- Kino carries a ballistic knife capable of firing .22 caliber rounds out of the grip. She appears to have replaced one of the barrels with a laser pointer.
Hermes: “The most important thing for a traveler is decisiveness. That holds true for both rookie and veteran travelers. Am I wrong?”
Kino: “The most important thing for a traveler is what saves the traveler after struggling to the bitter end.”
Hermes: “What’s that?”
Kino: “That’s luck”

Kouhaku Kuroboshi is one of my personal favorite illustrators and I thought my blog could use a bit more of his art. I’m particularly fond of his work on theKino’s Journey book and anime series.
(Pardon for the scan quality on some of them. How I long to hold a physical copy of his work in my hands, but until then I am at the mercy of the internet.)
Hello my favourite series. And one of my favourite artists.
