Travel is often connected with journey and exploration, both external and internal. While we have travel shows that share people’s experiences, in the anime world, travel often acts as a key moment in the protagonist’s life.
Kenta Ishizaka’s manga ‘Zatsu Tabi -That’s Journey-’ begins a journey of self-discovery. The protagonist decides to go on an impromptu journey out of a sudden desire, putting her obligations on hold. She too, battles the questions and doubts in her mind as she travels with no plan in hand.
Kadokawa’s Dengeki Maoh magazine revealed in its July issue on Friday that ‘Zatsu Tabi -That’s Journey-’ will get an anime series.
The main character, Chika Suzugamori, is a manga artist who won a manga award. She pitches her drafts to publishers but gets rejected. A rainy day makes her day more miserable, and she begins to lose hope. She puts up a poll online just for fun asking where to travel.
The next day, on seeing a strong response, she decides to keep her word and travels North, as it was voted the most.
Kenta Ishizaka, the creator, also posted an illustration celebrating the announcement of the anime adaptation.
Currently, only the anime has been announced, and no details regarding the cast and staff have been revealed.
On the other hand, a ‘special’ survey is also being conducted, asking the participants where they would want to go. As per the poll, the top responses could make it into the anime.
A slice-of-life travel-themed anime that shows all kinds of experiences! From disappointment, fear, and doubt to struggle, pleasure, and clarity. Who would not want to go for it?
