Sora no Otoshimono – Tokeijikake no Angeloid

「劇場版 そらのおとしもの 時計じかけの哀女神(エンジェロイド)」 (Gekijouban Sora no Otoshimono: Tokeijikake no Enjeroido)
“Heaven’s Lost Property the Movie: The Angeloid of Clockwork”

Whenever something perverted happens, Tomoki is the yardstick by which I measure it. If Tomoki would have done it, it was probably awesome(ly perverted); if he wouldn’t have, you better get back to work, bud. As such, it should come as no surprise that I jumped at the chance to cover this movie. What might come as a surprise is the tone it takes, though that’s only if you’ve forgotten about the deeper side of Sora no Otoshimono, which is what makes this series so much more than your typical ecchi comedy.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte – 12 (END)

“You may now kiss the bride.”

「明日に羽飛く彼女達(フォルテ)」 (Asu ni Hapataku Kanajo-tachi (Forute))
“The Girls (Forte) Flapping Their Wings in the Morning”

After the climactic battle with Chaos last time, all I was really expecting in this finale was a lighthearted epilogue of sorts. While that’s pretty much what we got, this last episode surprised me by slipping in the big question at the very end: Which girl would Tomoki marry?

Sora no Otoshimono Forte – 11

Don’t mess with Tomoki’s first generation angeloids.

「幻想哀歌(ムサベツ)の果て」 (Gensou Aika (Musabetsu) no Hate)
“The Extremes of Illusionary Lament (Indiscrimination) “

The melodrama was in full swing, but this has to be easily the best Sora no Otoshimono episode to date. It even topped the emotion-filled climax to the first season when Nymph was freed from her sadistic master, as Ikaros, Nymph, and Astraea had to work together to stop Chaos in her grown up form.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte – 10

An overheating angeloid is an amazingly cute one.

「節穴世界(ファンタジーフィールド)を覗け!」 (Fushiana Sekai (Fantajii Fiirudo) wo Nozoke!)
“Peek into the Peephole World (Fantasy Field)!”

The silly over-the-top high jinks continue this week, but surprisingly slip in a few big developments with regards to Ikaros’ feelings and Chaos’ interpretation of love. Leading up to that, it was nothing but Tomoki falling victim to the angeloids’ refusal to give him some alone time — not even in a man’s safe haven, the bathroom — before the master pervert himself got everything he deserved with the realization of the TOMOKI Peeking System.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte – 09

Tomoko may not feel that Nymph’s worth catching, but I beg to differ when she’s flustered like that and at everyone’s mercy. She’s totally worth measuring.

「激闘!夢の一本釣り(ジャンボカーニバル)」 (Gekitou! Yume no Ipponzuri (Janbo Kaanibaru))
“Fierce Battle! The Fishing (Jumbo Carnival) of Dreams”

This series never ceases to amaze with the ridiculous ways the characters kill time. Lately, it’s been all Mikako’s doing as well, so her latest idea deserves special praise for being right out of the book of something I’d expect from Tomoki. Tied up girls in bikinis floating helplessly in the water by their arms and hormone-pumping guys going “fishing” for the one with the biggest rack? That’s like combining the kinkiness from bondage with the embarrassment from exhibitionism and feeding the end result to a bunch of perverts. Oh what will they come up with next?

Sora no Otoshimono Forte – 08

“Tomoki!”

「空に響く天使達(ウタヒメ)の声」 (Sora ni Hibiku Tenshi-tachi (Utahime) no Koe)
“The Angel’s (Songstresses’) Voices Resound in the Sky”

With the arrival of Chaos, the comedy takes a backseat this week and the emotion-filled drama unfolds in its place. Much like the first season, Nymph is the one who’s victimized again, as Chaos uses her strong emotions against her. After all the focus Nymph’s been getting since her chain was cut, I was really pleased with the way it culminated to this.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte – 07

Second generation angeloid, Type Epsilon Chaos has arrived! Quick, someone sound the loli alarm!

「西瓜(トモキ)喰います」 (Suika (Tomoki) Kuimasu)
“Eating Watermelons (Tomoki)”

You would think that if you paired up the smartest first generation angeloid with the dumbest, some middle ground would be reached in terms of collective intelligence. However, things don’t quite add up that way in practice as Astraea brings out the worst in Nymph. Stealing from Ikaros’ watermelon garden. Now that’s just stupid.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte – 06

Now there’s a face of distress we don’t often see from Mikako. It’s kind of alluring in a way, mini octopuses and all.

「決断せよ!天国と地獄(アップダウン)」 (Ketsudan Seyo! Tengoku to Jigoku (Appu Daun))
“Make A Decision! Heaven and Hell (Up Down)”

Astraea encounters “Tomoko” for the very first time and unknowingly lets her feel up her body in all the wrong ways, after which Mikako figures it’d be fun to abuse the Satsukitane wealth and make a game out of Tomoki’s stupidity. This week was a classic SoraOto affair with no formal introduction of Chaos just yet, but it did slip in a very interesting turn of events at the end to indicate that she’ll arrive soon.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte – 05

Eishirou sticks it to the Master of the Sky and says, “I shall return.”

「天界から来た超兄弟(トモダチ)」 (Tenkai kara Kita Chou Kyoudai (Tomodachi))
“The Super Brother (Friend) from the Heavens”

Compared to the first season, this sequel appears to be taking off much quicker on the relevant story side of things as the focus shifts back to the mysteries surrounding Synapse. The man of the (half) hour is none other than Eishirou, who plunges back into a Dive Game and makes his proclamation against the Master of the Sky. Oh now it’s on!

Sora no Otoshimono Forte – 04

So this is what I was seeing in the opening sequence. It’s the abominable Sohara snowman!

「死闘!零下1.4度の温泉(カッセン)」 (Shitou! Reika 1.4 do no Onsen (Kassen))
“Life and Death! The -1.4°C Hot Spring (Battle)”

Last week was a pro wrestling debacle and this week is a snowball fight pitting the guys against the girls. Mikako doesn’t look like she’s grown tired of messing around with Astraea just yet, but unfortunately the same can’t be said about being Eishirou’s New World Discovery assistant.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte – 03

Saying that looks painful would be an understatement.

「煩悩(プライド)ある戦い」 (Bonnou (Puraido) Aru Tatakai)
“A Fight with Worldly Desires (Pride)”

With another festival that sees the return of Judas, I was looking forward to another a repeat of the cork gun survival game seen in episode eight of the first season. Tomoki wasn’t too fond of the idea, given how Ikaros went on an aerial “angel of death” killing spree with her Gatling gun before, so I figured I was in store for something a step up from that.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte – 02

Astraea may not be human, but if she looks this good, she can’t possibly taste that bad. Come on Tomoki. Man up!

「驚愕!天使は馬鹿(キョニュウ)だった!!」 (Kyougaku! Tenshi wa Baka (Kyonyuu) Datta!!)
“Surprise! The Angel’s a Big-Breasted Idiot!!”

Astraea arrives and makes quite the splash by face-planting herself into the ground. I knew she was pretty dumb as a Delta angeloid, but I didn’t expect her to be a complete klutz as well. No wonder Nymph and Ikaros completely cast her off as a cause for concern even after learning that she’s come to Earth to eliminate Tomoki.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte – 01

The arrival of Astraea! She’s out for Sakurai blood.

「キミも脱げ!帰ってきた全裸王(ユウシャ)」 (Kimi mo Nuge! Kaettekita Zenra Out (Yuusha))
“You Strip Too! The Return of the Naked King (Hero)”

Even with the episode title, the parody opening for this premiere had more naked Tomoki than I was prepared for.

Sora no Otoshimono – OVA

「プロジェクト桃源郷(ピンク)」 (Purojekuto Tougenkyou (Pinku))
“Project Eden (Pink)”

The second season of Sora no Otoshimono is just around the corner, but a bonus OVA episode comes our way with the ninth manga volume to get us back into the hilarious ecchi-filled swing of things. “With great power comes great responsibility,” except when your name is Sakurai Tomoki and you use your angeloid to peek into girls’ changing rooms.

Sora no Otoshimono – 13 (END)

「空の女王(オトシモノ)」 (Sora no Joou (Otoshimono))
“The Queen (Thing that Fell) from the Sky”

I hate to say I called it, but there was really no other way I would’ve wanted things to conclude here. With the arrival of the Gamma Angeloid harpies and their Prometheus weaponry, Nymph’s master decides to toy with her until the bitter end. Tricked into believing he’s worried about her, Nymph cooperates with them but asks that they let her try to convince Ikaros into returning to the Synapse.
