    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 ...

    Review (ep1~11): a Slice of Life Genre


    Structurally, this storytelling is similar to 'Slice of Life' genres, which shows events of a character's life but may or may not contain a bit of plot progression.


    Abstract:
    This animation focuses mainly on the five female characters and their lives together. A bit bizarre, this all female platoon is stationed in a peaceful town living a rather quiet life. There is ...

    Moe Girls and Walking Tanks
    Sora no Woto takes place in a future or alternate reality where humans were almost wiped out in a war against their fellow man. The technology of the pre-war humans was quite amazing, beginning to enter the territory some mech shows, while the current tech rests at its greatest level of about WWII-era, and pre-industrial at its worst.

    The anime is set in a scenic European mountain village, ...

    The Sound of The Power of Anime
    Soranowoto grabbed my attention back when I first seen the trailer. More specifically the backgrounds lured me in and the followings of the daily life of the girls of the 1121st platoon. Other parts were also those little bits of curiosity. Soranowoto is uncommon in the fact that it's an original story, and in this case, Aniplex with their Anime no Chikara or Power of Anime. To me, it's just ...

    Much better than I had first expected.
    I watched Kemono no Souja Erin before this. I watched this in one go, without subtitles, save for the first two episodes I saw on time in Japan.

    My summary.
    A historical landmark in a futuristic post-war world involving a rural squadron and its efforts to preserve peace.

    Storyline 4
    When it first came out, many said that this was just going to be a lesser version of K-ON, but I would find ...

    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 ...

    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
