Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo – 01

ED Sequence

ED: 「宇宙は少女のともだちさっ 」 (Sora wa Shoujo no Tomodachisa) by MAKO, 遠藤綾, 牧野由依 (MAKO, Endou Aya, Makino Yui)
Watch the ED!: Mirror 1, Mirror 2, Streaming
As glad as I am that there wasn’t an OP (it’s ALI PROJECT) for the first episode, I didn’t think much of the ED here either. It’s a voice actress group song, and I’ve never been a huge fan of those.

-Well, if this entire episode had been like the first half (where not much happened and we’re briefly introduced to some of the cast), then I would have said that this was off to a pretty slow start and would have had a “meh” attitude towards the series. It didn’t show anything particularly exciting or that it had good potential. However, if there was one semi-redeeming part of this show, it’s that Fukuyama Jun uses his Zero/Lelouch as Leopard’s AI, and he manages to be pretty amusing with his antics. That made the second half better, but that’s about it. I didn’t think the mecha aspect was that good (granted, there wasn’t any real fighting), and it’s hard to say much of anything about the story at this point. I’m leaning towards just sticking with SOUL EATER for Mondays, though I’ll (probaby) watch one more episode of this to see if it gets any better.

    Where are the male characters?

  • January 6, 2009 at 1:05 amSirMuffin

    Hmmmmm… I haven’t seen it…. Waiting for the subbed version… But it doesn’t look like a serious mecha… And I’m not sure how non-serious mechas series tend to go down with the viewers since mechas pretty much all about the uber mecha fight animations.

  • January 6, 2009 at 1:19 amPanther

    So far it hardly looks that bad, but yes, ALI project, instant OP skip. I will have to give this a whirl and see how it goes, the animation looks ok to me.

  • January 6, 2009 at 2:06 amAvenger

  • January 6, 2009 at 2:20 amkts

    as far as i know from what i read at sora wo kakeru shoujo’s official website’s character info…i only see 1 guy. the rest of the characters are either robots or females o.O

  • January 6, 2009 at 3:11 amDearka

    it looks quite great to me because Sunrise is a good anime studio

  • January 6, 2009 at 3:40 amCamarilla

    Amazing Animation, but I have a feeling the story will be greatly lacking, ah well, will watch at least a couple more, if just for the animation.

  • January 6, 2009 at 3:57 amAmiena

    hmm… i’d like to take a look at this anime more. just out of basic interest and some good animation.

  • January 6, 2009 at 4:53 ampakxenon

    If it reminds me of Xenoglossia, I am prepared for mediocre GREATNESS.

  • January 6, 2009 at 4:59 amEiken

    No males = yuri? Hope so… :D

  • January 6, 2009 at 6:34 amThe Enigmatic Moondoggiebuiscuit

    Mecha Girls again!?! Yay!!!

    And you guys give ALI Project too little rep… They’re actually good you know.
    Anyways, graphics is an instant 9/10.

  • January 6, 2009 at 10:05 amShurei

    I hope so too xD

  • January 6, 2009 at 1:17 pmsacchi

    This show is in my list to check for the winter 2009 season, but I have no real hopes of it.

  • January 6, 2009 at 5:45 pmStory

    Typical Sunrise.

  • January 7, 2009 at 12:35 amSailor Enlil

    Lol the clunky AI thing with Lelouch/Zero’s voice is hilarious (almost makes me wonder if Zero himself will suddenly step out of it)

  • January 7, 2009 at 12:58 amMegas

    I watched it & read the review & I still don’t know wth its about. I feel like I’ve wasted my time again…

  • January 8, 2009 at 4:24 amKaioshin Sama

    @Story: Ahem…typical Hime team thank you. I’d think anybody would be hard pressed to compare this to say Votoms:Pailsen Files or Gundam 00. Comparing it to Mai-Hime or iDOLM@STER Xenoglossia on the other hand, much easier. You’d think people would have realized by now that they’re a big company and have lots of different teams with different theories of how to produce successful anime but I guess not. If you ask me though the Hime team has consistently been the weakest link within the whole Hajime Yatate group in terms of originality and creativity and this latest project of theirs doesn’t seem poised to change that status any time soon. If the formula follows then expect this to be all wacky antics for the first half followed by a mid series change in tone for the second half that see’s the cast trying to massacre one another. Yawn…..

    Truthfully I’m kind of hoping this series fails to meet with any major success so that the Hime team will get disbanded or at the very least lose favour with the executive suits. That way the funding for their would be future projects could instead go to other better ideas from the other teams. Unfortunately I have this sinking feeling that they’re going to manage to pull this one off and continue the companies seemingly endless run of popular and profitable series.

  • January 8, 2009 at 8:39 amAmau

    The “you must be tired” joke cracked me up. The “highway in outer space” scene was spectacular. Besides a couple cheap laughs and beautiful background, I don’t see any other noteworthy point about this anime.

    >If the formula follows then expect this to be all wacky antics for the first half followed by a mid series change in tone for the second half that see’s the cast trying to massacre one another.
    I like this formula. Worked for me in Xenoglossia, and it might work for me here.

    positives: animation quality/ and umm… animation quality.. oh and zeros voice..
