A Japanese anime television series produced by A-1 Pictures and Aniplex and directed by Mamoru Kanbe. The anime began airing in Japan on the TV Tokyo television network on January 5, 2010. So Ra No Wo To is the debut project of Anime no Chikara, a joint project of TV Tokyo's anime department and Aniplex.
[hide]I enjoyed the episode was nice to get see Noel some actually at this pacing though I'd have to guess that ms. captain(Felicia) will be larger focus of the next episode since each of the other girls spent most of the episode with Kanata besides her; first 'her' episode > 2nd Kureha > 3rd Rio > 4th Noel > 5th Felicia? in order let us better understand/know each member of the Troop.
Also Does Noel's voice, and manner of talking remind anyone else of Yuki Nagato(from Haruhi)?
Cause it sounded really similar to me even though I am pretty sure it's a different VA. [/hide]
It's a string of kanji, each of which has a meaning, but which don't convey a connected meaning when read together:
羽 feather, wing
白 white, plain
空 sky, empty
果 fruit, result, end
文 writing, pattern
There are a couple of posts about it on 2channel. One says it kind of describes the progress of this episode.
Another puts the kanji together into 2-syllable expressions:
空・音 sky-sound (sora oto)
山・水 mountain-water (means "landscape")
Another post reassembles them into a sort of Japanese poem like this:
"The water-green colored leaves pattern the mountain.
The sound of birds' wings become silent.
The sky at the end of the world is white."
I expect there are other ways of reassembling the kanji that will give other impressions.
The first part is pretty funny and badass... well, because Noel took out her machine gun and also how they scare those guys away.
The second part, however puts everything together. It's really tough for someone to lose their parents in childhood that it causes them to have sad memories and the treasures left behind are the only things to have them as a memory. Luckily enough, Naomi was able to re obtained the lost item that Mishio was looking for and it's hair ties. The episode title made it so obvious.
Reguarding Moe, I don't see any nor I see any since the last 6 episodes... Prejudice, perhaps? Overall, the slice of life content is rather good and I still liking the setting it gives. Everything just fits in such as the OP, the content and the ending theme.
