  • A Not So Joyous Ride
    Look here, I have never cried while watching anime, but this one, it was the closest I ever came to. Extremely Minor Spiler, Kal-el(MC) and Ariel, his non biological sister both enlist in the aerial academy to search for the end of the sky< sounds insane right? Although Kal-el has an ulterior motive. Watch to find out, but I was deeply surprised when motive well you'll find out. Watch it. Love the ...

    plane old kind of typical anime
    In a nut shell, boy has unrelated sister who loves him, then meets another girl, they fall in love. Boy and girl 2 cannot be together for what ever reason. Boy becomes the best to get with girl 2 while unrelated sister has to suck it up. Blah, blah, blah. Well done aerial combat. Decent character development. And something that does not happen in too many animes/manga: good guys die. A bunch of ...

  • Captivating and Inspiring!
    This anime starts strong from the beginning and finishes of strong with an unquenchable desire. A mission that must be carried out! Love wins out in the end! Seeds planted early in the heart and mind of our young leading male. Seeds of doubt and wonder get planted early in the heart and mind of our young leading female. Personal hope for justice, personal hope for compassion both win out in the ...

  • Action Adventure Love.
    First I want to say I love this anime. The storyline is very interesting and it entertaining. The development of the friendships and love relation with the characters are heartwarming and reaching after some of the tragedies that befall on some of them. I also like how they were able to balance out the funny moments in with the serious ones, in my opinion, it deserves a second season to know what ...

  • Pretty solid 4 star anime
    While I wouldn't list this as a best-of-all-time anime, it's definitely worth checking out. The setting is compelling, the animation is beautiful, and the storyline solid. The characters toed the line between being a bit typical and a bit unique so while they weren't walking tropes I don't remember much about them (I'm writing this review 6+ months after watching)

    It seems to want a second ...

  • great anime to watch
    This anime if first off different from the usual romance/war genera but not for worse this anime tugged all the right kind of emotional strings, it makes you feel emotionally attached to every character somehow in 13 episodes all and all a great watch..

  • Slightest bit Underwhelmed, but Loved it Overall
    I'm not a big reviewer or anything, so I'll keep my review relatively short. Note, I will be mentioning the Cons first and I personally tend to make those longer. But know this: I criticize because I love, and that means I love this anime.

    As a pilot, I love aviation-themed anime. Pilot's Love Song, in that regard, is now one of my favorite anime out there. I dearly hope that it receives a ...

  • DO NOT GO BY THE POSTER OR TITLE
    Both of those things are very deceptive. This is an excellent, poignant, memorable show with a lot of action and deep character development. The first episode I found pretty confusing, but stick with it, I promise its a good ride. The one thing it aint is a cutsey little show about how blondy had 2 girlfriends.

    The only issues with the show really are that they obviously shove 10lbs of plot ...

  • Amazing intro. Huge let down MC.
    MC has tragic backstory. MC acts friendly. MC seems to be nursing rage. MC has all the necessary bits to be epic. MC proves to be a complete wimp who can't channel the dark side. Lost all interest in wimp MC. Laugh at MC when he gets beaten up by side character who would make a better MC.


    Rest of the show is fine; really the protagonist's lack of spine is what brings this show down to 3 out ...

  • Original and Ambitious
    The animation wasn't perfect, but it wasn't exactly bad. CG integration could have been better, but also certainly wasn't bad by any means. Great story and great characters, but some of it felt rushed. While I'm curious to see if it gets an additional season (hopefully with a bigger budget) they could also just leave it at the end of episode 13 and have a very effective story. Flawed, but ...
