Shōjo Shūmatsu Ryokō (Last Tour)



Quote:
Kadokawa announced two more anime at Anime Expo on Sunday. The first is an anime adaptation of Tsukumizu's Girls' Last Tour (Shōjo Shūmatsu Ryokō ) manga
Plot Summary:
Quote:
Civilization is dead, but Chito and Yuuri are still alive. So they hop aboard their beloved Kettenkrad motorbike and aimlessly wander the ruins of the world they once knew. Day after hopeless day, they look for their next meal and fuel for their ride. But as long as the two are together, even an existence as bleak as theirs has a ray or two of sunshine in it, whether they're sucking down their fill of soup or hunting for machine parts to tinker with. For two girls in a world full of nothing, the experiences and feelings the two share give them something to live for...

There's a minor misspelling in the English version of the title. Should be "Girl's Last Tour".

Studio is White Fox.

I thought that was really good. They really got across a feel of the bleak desolation of that world, both with the visuals and with the music and ambient sounds which seemed to really buoy up the atmosphere.

When they emerge from the depths and into the comparative light of the night sky, there's a real 'sensawunda' as they used to say.

Good stuff.

Ah, good. That was concerning.

In other news, somehow the music in the opening and ending (particularly the ending) makes me think of Enya. It seems very fitting to this series and the world these girls are wandering through. I'm not sure if those are actually the OP and ED or not (first episodes sometimes do odd things with those), thus "music used in the opening and ending."

I almost thought Yuuri was going to shoot Chito. Very bleak atmosphere and nice soundtrack.

Yes, the ending music reminded me of Enya, and it also reminded me in places of some of the music Itou Masumi has done in anime in the past even though (AFAIK) she's not involved.

Nice. Reminds me in an odd way of Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou in its isolated cosy apocalypse concept. The music is... wrong, it doesn't really fit the visuals.

I can understand why the production company CGed the Kettenkrad but it jars a little with the backgrounds and the manga-like animation of the main characters and especially their features.

Nothing screams post apocalypse more than ruined war machines, endless snow, and giant military industrial complexes.

Since they don't know what chocolate is, I assume they were born right smack middle during whatever human made Armageddon this ended up being. That said I can't imagine what kind of upbringing these two have where they can joke almost joke around with pointing a gun on each other over who gets the last bit of food.

I'm also pretty sure that's a Karabiner 98k they have.

I had no idea this got an anime. Very nice, I like the feel the manga gives off, a sort of slow, calm melancholia of a time long forgotten in ruins of ancient times with remnants of events nobody can remembers laying around everywhere. I mean the girls don't even know what "chocolate" is/really looks like, so they must have a very chocolate-empty childhood as little kids. And given their flashback their lives seems to have been war, machinegun-fire, rations, one girl learning to shoot and the other to drive a Kettenrad. And if they don't even know what chocolate is that means even the old people haven't told them about the sweet wonders of cacao and sugar meaning even they had no idea what chocolate truly is so there was no reason to talk about it. Just eat the "chocolate-flavored" ration and be happy you don't have only snow to eat.
