    1. ...A producer approached me asking if I wanted to do a new anime, because he had done a short picture drama on Nico Nico Douga with Aoi Yūki doing the voice acting, and it was a hit. Based on that, he wanted to make a new series with Aoi Yūki playing the part of Kino.
    2. not a sequel or a second season, it should be considered a completely new remake.
  2. This Week in Anime - How Does the Kino's Journey Remake Compare to the Original Series?” Edited by Jacob Chapman and Steve Jones, Anime News Network, 17 Oct. 2017,
    Jacob Apparently the new voice of Kino, Aoi Yūki, was the driving force behind getting more made... But guess what Aoi Yūki's debut anime role was? [A picture of Kino and Sakura together from the 12th episode of the 2003 anime. Jacob is reffering to Sakura in this picture to make a point]
