Several of the towns she visits could be seen as representing parts of the mind. The land of Visible Pain (Ep 1) is empathy and is in the state it's in because Kino is not very empathetic. The sad country is self explanatory, the land of prophecies is prediction and foresight, the coliseum is violence and conflict, the three traders in the snow is about selfishness, and so forth. Kino is retreating into her mind to escape the pressures society puts upon her to 'grow up,' as suggested in the Land of Adults.

The visual style of the characters varies wildly from characters such as Kino, who look like normal anime characters, to more 'abstract' designs for many incidental characters, such as the priests in the land of Prophecy or the poet in the Sad land. The 'real' characters are people Kino has met in reality; the 'abstracts' are constructs or personifications of her mind (see above), or figments of her imagination or the fantasy world she travels.

In the coliseum episodes, the king did not recognize Kino because of her drastically changed appearance, which also explains his request to marry her. He didn't recognize Shizu without a makeover, so it makes sense that he wouldn't recognize Kino with one.

As well as looking awfully similar to one another, it is possible the woman didn't remember much about being sent away from the castle, as she says her father left them. She may have been told this as a cover story. In addition, she is the only person the King actually kills himself in the matches we see, and right before he has a panicked look on his face, as if he recognised her as his daughter.

Clearly, many of the places Kino visits are being [[Main/IronicHell cosmically and symbolically punished]]; but Kino remains untouched by it all. She's a {{badass}} [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Tourist]] enjoying herself.

[[WMG: Kino's personality is the result of not going through the procedure in her own country.]]
The citizens of Kino's home have had their brains altered to the point that they no longer function the same way as other people do, and this has become a natural inherited phenomenon. Kino was supposed to go through the adulting surgery on her twelfth birthday but she didn't, and rather than developing normally, her brain started developing in an odd way that leaves her disconnected from the world.
