Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta Episode 3


My name is Eva, I've been watching Anime since 2003, and I became a fan later in 2005. I am a passionate writer, so it's a wonderful experience and incredibly thrilling to blog reviews/critics and just express myself about the series.

    Ignacio looked pretty scraggly as a kid… quite different from the well-groomed young man we se today. Did he live in poverty during his childhood? I was also surprised when Ariel said that he wasn’t talented/ didn’t put in much effort in class… he looks exactly like the type who’d work hard to make up for anything he perceived as deficiencies (Which really begs Kal-el’s question: Why’d he enrol in the high school?). I also find it odd that it seemed like Claire was at least acquainted with him- did you see the look on her face after he left? Now that we know about Kal-el, the show’s big mysteries revolve around Claire (I think there’s something she’s not telling us- note her expression whenever the topic of Nina Viento came up), Ignacio and Nina Viento. I was hoping to see Ignacio and Ariel interact with each other- they have the potential for an amusing cat-dog dynamic, but it seems like she’s given up on him now.
    And really, Ignacio… why aren’t as verbal in the show as you are in the previews?

      I feel like there’s a lot more to story and characters’ involvement, or at least their families in the Wind Revolution. I think once we have the opportunity to see someone else’s side of the story instead of solely from Kal-El’s perspective will be very interesting. There may be a possibility that Claire’s family is connected to the ones who overthrown the La Fire empire, but I’m not holding my breath for it until it seems likely. I am also terribly disappointed at the lack of Ignacio and Ariel interaction as well, but they are bound to for sure next week since the team will be searching for Kal-El and Claire.

      As for Ignacio’s fancier getup, either his family got some sort of promotion after the Wind Revolution, or life for the people itself improved since it’s no longer an empire, but a republic state. (I wouldn’t be too surprised if it were the later because of people were very unhappy with the La Kire family)

    Looks like time didn’t really do much to alleviate Kal-el’s intense rage… I really did feel his pain and despair though, especially as the execution would have seemed like unjustified cruelty from a child’s point of view.

    It’s also really ominous how he’s slowly working towards his revenge, bit by bit – it looks like he’s lying to Claire during flight lessons and telling her they’ve spent their ammo, when in reality he’s pocketing a couple of shells for the purposes of killing Nina Viento.

      Ah! I can’t believe I overlooked that scene!!!! Yeah his rage hasn’t gone anywhere, if not only grown. Claire might be able to help him let that go, especially if there comes a point (and I’m sure there will be) when he has to make a choice: Save his friends, or selfishly attempt to assassinate Nina Viento.
