Anime “Girls’ Last Tour” consists of two seasons. The screen version was released in 2017 thanks to the wonderful director of the anime, Ozaki Takaharu. The idea of anime belongs to Tsukumizu, – he did everything possible to translate the dream and fantasy into a real Japanese high-quality graphic cartoon. All 12 episodes of the first season look at one breath – they give a sense of faith and hope in difficult life situations.
According to the director, the 2nd season will be released in autumn 2019.
Idea and storyline of the film
The two girls of Chito and Uri remain alone on the planet. They have to hide in a bunker in the snow-capped mountains of Japan in order to survive. The survival school for them is simple – to overcome problems and prevent them. The technogenic catastrophe has come on the Earth not through their fault, leading world capitalist imperial states have led the world to apocalyptic destruction. They could not divide the planet’s natural resources among themselves, and this killed many people and even ecologically rich ones themselves. Now the girls have nothing left to do but take the first step towards the revival of human and natural resources. But how to do it? All the male population died in the war!
Contents of the previous season
The first season of “Girls’ Last Tour” tells about adventures of Chito and Jüri. They completely do not remember anything after they fell on a beam in the bunker. Girls aimlessly travel through the ruined cities all day long. They are in search of hope for the salvation of civilization. But, unfortunately, the ruins of the previously lively localities and cities now retain only a faded reflection of past beauty.
Nevertheless, teenagers do not lose hope of salvation – with the help of a motorcycle they go on long distances, making own special investigation and planning ways of a survival among fragments of city walls and corpses of people. Girls are watching empty houses destroyed by city walls, hydroelectric power stations, nuclear power plants, scattered everywhere with dust covered with dust pillars. Fire of the incredible war burned up all living beings here.
The breathtaking spirit of surrealism is attributed to the last book of the Bible, describing the all darkness of the diabolical machinations in the final battle of the higher forces. The plot first season makes us to understand how the current world is close to an ecological disaster: the world’s population can no longer be satisfied with owned resourses, and the rich men seek to multiply their financial and other material resources.
All this resembles a fantastic race for survival, or a special simulation game, and there are only two characters. Season`s series are divided into episodes of 25 minutes, each of them is creating a separate situation picture.
What to expect from the “Post-apocalyptic Shojie adventures” in the second and third season?
I would like to expect a clearer picture of reality from the next season of anime. Perhaps Chito and Urey will still be able to find a way out and rescue from the devastated world. It was the world of their dreams, in which they felt themselves protected from the harsh reality. Maybe they will be able to find real friends in the ruined cities? Or maybe even a surviving settlement?
