Editorial Reviews

Steam City is shrouded in a perpetual fog and, courtesy of the criminal element, a veil of terror to boot. Enter Narutaki, the young son of Steam City's greatest detective and the only person who can restore peace to the beleaguered city!

This is a great series, wonderful artwork, and a good plot. ****For some reason reviews of Demon King Daimo have been posted to this anime*** If you are looking for fan service, nudity, or harem action, this is NOT the series. If you want good animation, voice acting, plot, character development, with action, adventure, and comedy mixed in, in just the right proportions, this is the one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, enigmatic, sweet October 29, 2011
By Dulahan
Format:DVD
There are a few different schools where Sora no Woto is concerned. Some see the Moe elements and do not really look past it. After all, it definitely falls into the mold. Look at the characters, most of them can be directly translated to others - Haibane Renmei, K-On!, and any other number of Moe series. And in that respect, it is a Moe series. There are even some plots that seem right from any of the other ones I've seen. If Moe is an immediate turn off, this might not be for you. But I urge you to give it a chance. Why?

There is a different layer to the show entirely. The backstory of the setting. The world this is set in is highly intriguing, without spoiling anything I will just say for a lot of us watching it as it came out? The fun of the series was trying to piece together just what was up. Each episode adds another layer to the enigmatic world. Yet never truly reveals everything, leaving this something you can ponder and talk over with your friends for a long time. And this is coupled with some of the lushest animation outside of a Miyazaki movie!

As for a closest feel? I'd place it on a similar 'feel' to Haibane Renmei. It's a slice of life with a slight overarching plot, and it is set almost entirely in the environs of a single town. Even a lot of the characters (Especially the two mains) are easily mapped to some from the show. to be fair, 3 are easily mapped to K-On! as well... So if you loved that show, this is a worthy successor, perhaps not as heavy philosophically in its way, but still quite wonderful. Plus it is absolutely stunning in terms of animation. I can't repeat that enough. It is a real shame it hasn't been released on Blu-Ray yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Haiku Review: Sora no Woto August 12, 2013
Format:DVD
A review of Sora no Woto in haiku meant to capture the essence of the story (blah twenty word minimum blah):

Five maidens stand watch
Tilling loss and twilight in
A cracked, riven world

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful coming-of-age tale February 8, 2013
By Miso
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this initially for the character designs (the artist being the one who also did "K-On!"), but was almost immediately caught up in the story.
An exceptionally well-crafted tale, set in a possible post-apocolyptic future, where humanity is struggling to rebuild after a series of devistating wars.
"Sound of the Sky" weaves the background storys of five young women who are bound together, not only by ties of Duty, but also their connection to an enduring legend of an earlier Era. And all THAT is also caught up in a hauntingly familiar song, that transcends the continuing conflict that troubles the world they live in.
Don't let the seeming easy going pace of the show fool you. "Sound of the Sky" has considerable depth. The attention to detail in the visuals are also a treat.

I bought this for a friend in exchange for something or other, and thought it was just a typical Slice of Life anime set in the Military. However when my friend let me borrow it, It completely destroyed what I thought it was going to be out of the water, The characters are all extremely likable and have great development throughout the series and the story keeps getting better and better with each episode, the parts that really won me over were the Soundtrack, and the Animation. Both were by far some of the best I've ever Heard or Seen in an anime.
And the Box it comes in, I love it. It's nice and sturdy, has a nice cover to hold the 4 DVD sleeves and the little post cards that it comes with is also a really nice touch.
9/10 would recommend Highly

5.0 out of 5 stars Must watch! if you're a military buff! March 15, 2014
Format:DVD
It's so interesting even if it is slow paced! I love it! It has a bunch of speculations and facts that are really interesting.
The art is lovely. The city of Seize is super homely and the character are totally unique!

A Must watch for anyone that likes: Aria the Animation, Kaleido Star, Haibane Renmei and last but not least! Croisée in a Foreign Labyrinth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sound of the Sky July 31, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's rare that great animation, music and a fascinating world come together to create such a memorable experience. Sound of the Sky is a definitely one of my favorite slice of life anime, so much so that I wish there were more episodes to explore the world and the characters in greater detail, but sadly that isn't very likely to happen. The actual set comes with a nice art book and the few extras included are better than most releases. I highly recommend it to any one interested in the genre or just looking for a great feel good show.

Item arrived fast and in great condition. Would buy from seller again.
