Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta Ep 6: Holy Springs


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.

    You know how the current Isla passengers are all political exiles from Balsteros? I have this horrible feeling that the Sky Clan were once exiles as well, sent to the End of the Sky a long long time ago – perhaps exiles from a time when high-wing monoplanes weren’t so old fashioned. It’d certainly explain why their language structure is similar, and why they’re seen as “barbarians” with out of date technology.

      Yeah and speaking of which, what really struck out to me was this particular line:
      “The Sky Clan’s linguistic system is very similar to that of Balsteros.”
      “That of Balsteros?”

      Initially it confused me because I knew it meant something, but I couldn’t figure it out. But now that you mentioned the possibilities of other exiles from long ago, it would make total sense why they are considered barbarians.

      Glorious Death eh… Would that count being shotdown in a dogfight just as the sun sets? Or pulling off a heroic move?
      Either way it’s likely to rip our hearts out.
