Gakuen Kino [Up to date]

The world is not beautiful, therefore it is. Wait, wrong series.

Kino is an ordinary high school student enjoying an ordinary life in an ordinary world. But when a mysterious entity transforms her classmates into demons and besieges the school, it’s up to her to transform into Mysterious Bishoujo Gun Fighter Rider Kino and bring peace back to the city!

Accompanied by Hermes the talking cell phone strap, Samoyed Mask the handsome but highly incompetent self-proclaimed protector, and the ever-mysterious Detective Wanwan, Kino sets out to conquer every restaurant in town and maybe save the world if she has time to spare.

A spin-off of the acclaimed Kino’s Journey series, Gakuen Kino is a lighthearted comedy where nothing is sacred—not even the original series.

The series is currently ongoing at 5 volumes. Translation has been halted until the next volume is released.

  4. I've been meaning to read this, but I have a question first: will I miss out on a lot of in-jokes if I haven't read the Kino no Tabi novels (though I've seen the anime)?

    1. I personally went into Gakuen Kino with just anime knowledge (I read the Kino's Journey novels later), and didn't feel like I missed out on much. I put up translation links for recommended reads for stories of Gakuen Kino that do involve knowledge from the novels, so if you'd like to dive in, go right ahead.

  5. These novels are so retarded I felt a little dazed when I kept going with Kino no Tabi, but they´re hilarious X)
    Thanks for translating this, and I hope you´ll get a chance to translate the fifth (I´ve heard it´s the last one - please correct me if I´m wrong). I couldn´t stop laughing in the part where Shizu´s singing his own theme song XD

  8. For my own reading convenience, and hopefully others', here's my quickly cobbled together .epub versions of volumes 4 and 5.

    They could probably use some more in-depth proofing, but as I still have yet to read these volumes, I just skimmed them and sanity checked the translator's notes, etc. Enjoy!
