Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta — First Impressions


A pilot falls in love.

Normally I would be a sucker for a show like this. A steampunk love story. What more could anyone ask for?


But actually I was a bit disappointed. I don’t like any of the characters at the moment. The sister is a typical genki girl. The female love interest seems to be a clumsy rich girl. The main character seems okay but isn’t particularly interesting either.

I’m even disappointed with the setting. It sounded at first like they were headed on an awesome adventure to find the End of the Sky. Sounds pretty sweet, right? But then it turns out that to do this, they’re taking an entire flying mountain with them. What kind of adventure is it if you take your city with you? Lame. Extremely lame. Plus it sounds like they’re going to be attending school during their journey. This is not an adventure at all. I have never seen such a pathetic adventure before.

But it is steampunk… and beggars can’t be choosers. Will still be watching, of course.

    1. Maybe it is just me wishing it would be an adventure… They are supposed to be searching for the End of the Sky though, so maybe…

  1. At least the plane designs are cool. And these idiots will eventually be shooting at each other, from the looks of things. I’m worried the first few episodes are just going to be generic Hogwarts, er, flight school BS where a bunch of boring characters are introduced in generic ways.
