    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Behind All the Innocence...
    Love the story!

    Sora no Woto is my kind of slice of life, but despite of that it actually holds more than that. I love how the directors/writers of this show, presents the "slice of life," daily lives of the characters, or you could say the innocent lives mainly of the three characters, Kanata, Kureha and Noel and simultaneously, explaining the dark side/dark past of a character or basically ...

    Sora No Woto Critic Review
    Five different girls in military and their lives. Interesting? Unfortunately, it doesn’t. This anime is a true example of what happens, if you try to do too much at once on the weak and uninspiring basis.

    Sora No Woto, aka ‘Sound of the Sky’ is a mixed culture setting war zone folktale involving a young girl who only came to military to play nice trumpet. If you just read the synopsis, it seems ...

    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 ...

  • Soranowoto, something to remember.
    Soranwoto, let me start by saying, it is one of the most innocent looking animes you'll ever come across. It might seem a bit cliche at first, but as you continue watching it, it is actually worth remembering. It might seem at first that the characters met at random but the characters had mysterious pasts that lend to them meeting.

    I'm kind of confused as where it is set since the cities are in ...

    Soranowoto, a study of calculation and courage
    Soranowoto follows five female soldiers defending a border city during both uneasy peace and conflict, and is very engaging as a slice-of-(specialized)life series. Beneath the surface, however, the series becomes a study in calculation and courage.

    Every individual, as well as every organization, can be said to exist as a collection of secrets. The soldiers of the 1121st Platoon of ...
