This is a page where I've jotted down my ideas and plans for this shrine site, so I can pick back up on working on it whenever. If the idea is finished, it will be striked out!

Site Plan

Things i wish for this site to achive:

  • To inform anyone interested in Kino's Journey about the series
  • To pursuade those who have never heard of/seen the series to give it a try
  • To provide insight and profiles on each character of the series, and give generalized profiles on each character.
  • To provide fast and easy reference of episodes and novels
  • To provide summary of each episode and movie of Kino's Journey
  • To provide easy access to translated novel versions of Kino's Journey
  • To display screenshots and images of Kino's Journey
  • To give resource for those who wish to create their own Kino-themed websites/fanlisting/fanshrine
  • To give resource to those who enjoy Kino Journey's overarching message: The world is not beautiful, therefore, it is.
  • To give reference to the authors other works as well as the spinoff work Gakuen Kino

Why mirror?

As the internet ages, sites fade out and files are lost into the sea of binary or vanish from thin air (see: nyaa.se) Mirring files to my own site not only prevents them from disappearing but also preserves the files on my own domain. I refuse to take ANY credit for anything hosted here. As such, I will list what I am planning to host in this web space:

IF I AM HANDED A CEASE AND DESIST EMAIL/NOTICE AND OR ANY FILES HOSTED ARE LICENCED, ALL ASSOCIATED LINKS WILL GO DOWN. A warning will be put in its place.

  • The Hylia: OSTs and Drama CDs - I am actively going to buy any kino music I can get my hands on as well as buy access for it to host on this domain.
  • Untuned-Strings & Barnnn: Translations (PDF ONLY) - due to the nature that you can't trust Google imo
  • Nyaa.si Old Kino Anime/Movies that are unlicenced - ADV films no longer exists so I believe hosting these episodes might be ok. I'm only concidering this; I might not have enough space to do this lmao
  • SiberOwl Scanlations: Kino Mangas - with how Bato.to died out of nowhere? You can never be too safe.
