It's a while since I watched it but I don't recall noticing any issues - can you post a screencap (and approximate timestamp) that demonstrates the problem?

It was throughout the series, it's really hard to explain and I'm not sure if it would be properly visible in a screencap. Well, here is a screenshot regardless .. Focus on her hair and maybe you will see it more clearly.

As for the series itself, I just watched it anyway, all 13 episodes in one run. This reminded me a bit of Haibane Renmei where nothing particularly happened but I still liked the series alot and I don't even know why .. There's still two movies left but I'll leave those for tomorrow.

What was with that last episode though, Sakura and .. well the whole setting, it was as if it was Kino's life when she was young, excluding the brain modification thingy.

Yeah, that's intentional. I wondered the same thing myself when I first watched it, actually.

Those "lines" are usually used to portray video playback in TV shows. I'm not sure why your clips would have them, since I don't recall seeing them in mine. I'd have to check again, though, as it has been a long time since I last watched Kino no Tabi.

As for your above question about Sakura, I don't understand your question. Yes, Sakura's story is deliberately meant to mirror Kino's own experience as a child. Parts of Kino's back story have already been hinted at in previous episodes. The last episode serves to tie up the various threads to provide a fitting finale for the series.

In a way, the last story is meant to show how fate can turn out very differently for different people even when they seem to face similar circumstances. Kino (or rather, the girl who would one day become Kino) was forced to flee her country because of circumstances but, in Sakura's case, she chose to stay in her country even though it would cost her life.

Just check the post above with the picture in the link and you will see the lines I was talking about. Neat Hedgehog said though that they are apparently intentional, though it still puzzles me as to why have such lines there at all, intentional or not.

This series was a rare success for me - an "artistic" method of presentation of a series that actually works for me.

It was extremely subdued and almost minimalistic - especially the dialogue - and yet so often it felt as if so many of the phrases and reflections were filled with meaning: one only picked up on the meaning every once in a while. This kind of "artsy" style works for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed the series.

Definitely not for everyone though - I can easily see many people finding this to be boring, repetitive and tedious. But I really enjoyed it.

I am kinda interested to check out the light novel work on the series going on at baka tsuki now....
