    Looks like a long, strange trip...Episodes 1-7
    Boy am I glad I gave this one a little more time to develop.

    If I had written a review after the first three or four episodes, it would have been called "K-On joins the army", and it would have been a legitimate complaint. The first episodes were aimless, the character types are similar and obviously the animation style is identical. It looked like all they did was take K-On's slice of life ...

    Theres no reason not to watch
    SO RA NO WO TO takes place in a European (probably French) based countryside. A ceasefire has lasted for 6 months, ending a costly war. Enter Kanata Sorami, an orphaned girl with an ear for chords who enlists for the army to follow her passion, music. She is posted as the 5th member of a platoon on the edge of the Helvetia, guarding the border between "no mans land" and Seize, Trois. Under ...

    A perfect blend of lighthearted humor and the pain and suffering that results from war.
    The first few episodes of this series had me thinking that I was going to watch a cute and funny slice of life series with friends of the girls from K-ON. I never would have guessed this series would throw us into some seriously heart wrenching wartime moments. This show blended humor and happiness with the pain and horrors that a person experiences during times of war flawlessly. It jumped ...

  • Got hooked from the beginning. Quite possibly my new favorite anime.
    As the title says, possibly my new favorite anime ever.

    There are quite a few references to K-On!, and the artwork pretty much gives that away from the beginning. But, despite the number of similarities, the story plot developed very smoothly in just 12 episodes with a cast of characters that I loved watching grow through their apocalyptic setting.

    Heartwarming to the end, there's no way I ...

  • A Surprising Mix of Character and Milieu
    The series should seem ambitious mixing character stories within an unfolding reveal of an alternate universe where a global war has devastated nearly everything but it tends to keep a nice, even pace that's easy to follow yet still propulsive.

    Many surprises, many rewarding revelations, many things to make the viewer wonder and smile.

  • nemoskull's review of Sora No Woto
    so many anime today have superheros. this one is a bit different. its a story of a group of female soldiers on the edge of nowhere, a forgotten post in a post apocalyptic world. a tank platoon given a high tech but non function relic of another war.

    the anime follow their lives and trial amid a uneasy cease fire.

    An Amazing Experience!
    This series was absolutely perfect. You honestly can't ask for anything else from it. The show basically is an estimate of what may happen due to human interaction, and war; the world remains in ruins with few areas habitable. Again, this show is definitely a must watch!

    This show needs to be watched :)
    There will be some spoiler in this review. But I will do my best to keep it to the minimum.
    All scores are set with 5 as best.

    Animation / Visual 4.5
    This anime looks great. Wonderful opening and closing sequence. Character design is great. Most of the series is about the interaction between the cast, but the few times when the tanks show up look good.

    Voice acting / Music / Sound 5
    Voice ...

    Absolutely Fantastic
    I was really surprised by this one and really glad I watched it. It took a while to develop and is a slower anime, but the gradual characterization really made me fall in love with the characters. Also that gradually falling in love with the characters really brings out the emotion of the final two episodes of the regular series. The animation is beautiful and the art style is one of the best. On ...
