Understated beauty and brilliance
Occasionally I take a chance, and buy an anime I've never heard of. Sometimes I get a good one, sometimes not... and sometimes, I discover a gem of an anime that I wish I had known of sooner.
Sound of the Sky is one of those gems. Perhaps there's nothing ground-breaking about it; it's not huge in scope, nor is it vast in its storytelling. But it is achingly well done, with characters you grow to care about, fantastic visuals, and a story that actually has a resolution. My only complaint is that I wish it were longer.

More than fan service...
This show at first glance is simply fan service. However, in order to see this show for the hilarious and touching story that it is, you have to unfortunately endure the fan service. THERE IS NO REASON THEY COULD NOT HAVE AT LEAST DRAWN SOME PANTS OR SHORTS ON THESE CHARACTERS. Once you get past the lack of pants this show has it all, a decent story, memorable characters, great action, great drama, and excellent animation.
