Kino’s Journey Episode 7: The Art of Reimagining History

Review:

Obi Wan Kenobi probably said it best when he told Luke, “So what I told you was true, from a certain point of view.” History is open to interpretation and two people given the same set of facts may very well draw different conclusions. It gets even muddier when you mix in people’s emotions and the pride of a country. And it is this perspective that this week’s Kino’s Journey looks to highlight and while it does it well enough, as always this show kind of lacks subtlety.

It is almost as though they start from ‘and this week the message is’ and then find a way to shove that into the viewers face repeatedly throughout the course of the story. The story itself, this week, is actually kind of interesting as we have Kino relating a story their master once told them about a country with a clock tower and then when we get to the end of the story Kino arrives in the country. The man she speaks to their has a different version of the same story but just in case you were wondering who was lying there’s a fairly obvious visuals clue and then Kino verbally draws attention to it. Just in case you missed it.

Honestly, I like this show well enough, but it would be better if they could just let the story speak for itself.
