Sora no Woto Ends

      Comments Off on Sora no Woto Ends

The series wraps up with an ending that is sort of sweet, but mainly is ludicrously dumb. Dumb on so many levels that there really is no point in complaining about it.

I should have seen it coming of course. When a series starts out by introducing a military unit that is mostly made up of Brownie Scouts, and it isn’t a comedy, there are really only two possibilities: the Gainax ending and the schmaltzy ending. Guess which one they picked.

And what does the title mean anyway? Everyone knows that you can’t make words using the wo character. And it’s written in katakana (SORANOWOTO) so it ought to be some sort of foreign phrase, but nothing comes to mind. Actually it turns out to be a goofy way to write Sora no Oto (Sound of the Sky.)
