In any case, apparently I wasn't the only one who saw Howl's Moving Castle and wondered what the war itself was like. Lots of Ghibli vibes from the aircraft and tech.

Finally saw the first episode. Beautifully done. Lots of Ghibli vibes.

Also romance flag set this early in a war series? Oh yeah, one of them is dying.

Another bad juju thing is Kal saying that Isla doesn't return from this journey......

Oh and Kal-el? Really now?

I think the sepia tone of the flying boat/tilt-rotor/scout/fighter planes and that odd retro-alternate look of the clothes and tech is (oh and the flying rock) are what give this anime that Ghibli look.

The teaser in the opening looks like a nasty battle.

hmmm. Romance flag yes. but there is a clear noble/commoner divide. they're all pilots and there is a potential rival in the form of 'little sister' in that I think the 'little brother' is adopted. (no blood relation)

from the flash forward start. and the OP there's plenty of room for either or both to be casualties.

Good thing the guy they call urobutcher isn't in on this. ... we'd know that the girl dies, you die, everybody dies.

I am not the biggest proponent of two pilots in one plane. It does not give the "Ace" feel.

Umm... you've watched Top Gun, right? While the second person in an F-14 isn't technically a pilot, they can fly the plane in case something does happen to the pilot.

Many other anime have put me into a situation where two is not necessarily better than one. I am a skeptical person when it comes to this sort of stuff.

I do acknowledge the need for two people for proper coordination in other situations. However for my enjoyment, I would like to stick with a single pilot in the plane.

and yes I have seen top gun.

Ep 2

Not sure if I like the lead's character. Kind of...overbearing?

Side characters seem interesting though.

I am fairly curious about this show and about what is really going on in the world.

Episode 2 spoilers btw. not putting them under a spoiler tag because it has already aired on CR.

It seems there has recently been a power shift between the commoners and nobles, based on what happened this episode. On the one side you have the nobles who feel they are above the commoners, but on the other you have the revolutionary government and the school which is trying to break down those barriers. Considering he seems to have been a prince, and his mother seems to be in prison based on the first episode, i am guessing he lost his family and title to the revolution or w/e.

I am most curious about Clair though, she is clearly hiding something. and is clearly not just a regular noble. I am guessing her being there has more to do with something outside of going to school and learning to fly. If it was intended for her to go to school, why was she not at the opening ceremony? I am also curious to know what loss Kal is talking about on the first episode.

Soo many questions.

So, Kal is a former crown prince... He looks like he was about to go Berserker Nine-Tails mode when he saw her. Kal and Claire look really good together and the lonesome guy who let us know Kal was a former crown prince seems to have some ill-will towards Kal or is knowingly involved. Interesting...

Episode 2

This guy kinda pisses me off in episode 2:


Wolfgang is pretty awesome though. I'm curious what that guy with the silver hair is talking about at the end there as he obviously knows about Kal-el more than others. Dat proposal:

First off, holy crap that bombshell right at the very end before the ED started. O_O

Secondly, daaaaaamn did Kal-el hit Fausto with some sick burns this episode. Love it when the douchebags are put in their place.

Thirdly, Mr. Bandereas reminds me a lot of Antonio Banderas.

Fourthly, Sonia looks a lot like Annie from Attack on Titan.

Fifthly, damn Mitty has scored! He got the best looking partner, imo. Get it, son!

I keep having this feeling that some of the characters are going to die in this series. I'm already guessing Claire dies, I just have a bad feeling about her (I'd really rather her not die). I also believe that Kal-el's hatred for Nina Viento would relate to her being involved with his parent's death (assuming they died).
