Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta Overall Review

Eva

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.

    Just want your opinion… was that blue plane a reference to Charles’ Karino plane from the Princess and the Pilot?

    • Eva says:

      Hmmm…. I would say no. The Princess and the Pilot was a spin-off, and I don’t think the time frame would have matched, but even so that aspect of details is too vague to say. But there is one concrete evidence that Charles’ Karino’s plane didn’t have, and that was the seagull as well as the same nationality flag. I’m sure if they were going to make it him, it would have been the same.

      • Pablo says:

        Didn’t the Princess and the Pilot happen ten years before? And i understand that the symbol is different but the plane is still blue like the sky which they reference a lot throughout the movie and the seagull is maybe a reference to the freedom they both wanted but could never get? And it would make sense that he changed his symbol so that no one would recognize him… So maybe he kept a secret relationship with the princess!!! (That last part is just me hoping for too much! XD )

          Unfortunately I don’t have a clue about the time frame between the two series. But who knows, there is definitely a possibility though since (if I remember correctly, pardon my hazy memory, it’s been three years since I’ve last watched it XD;) Charles’ Karino was Levamme citizen… It would be cool if it were though, that’s for sure, but I suppose it’s ultimately up to the fan’s headcanons at this point- one which I would gladly accept! XD

          • Pablo says:

            Exactly, and by the end of the series the Levamme and Bolsteros Empire become allies to fight off the sky clan! man we really need those light novels… do you know how many of the books the series covered?

            • Eva says:

              Sorry, I only know what I have been told, which is apparently they cut out a lot of stuff so I don’t know how far they went. In particular, I am curious to see if Ignacio had a bigger role in those bits that were cut out, and potentially the ending. But my god, it would be one heck of a slap in the face if the series really did end like this. *HEADESKS* I pray that it didn’t.

              I am actually looking at my google chrome translation of the japanese amazon page and it looks like the first five volumes which are complete are completely covered by the anime because in the reviews you see people complaining about how little you see of Claire! XD
              Here is the summary (Doesn’t make much sense):

                Hm… that is interesting… Even more so if the author had decided to carry the story on through different storylines. So in a way, they are connected (if I understood it correctly- google translate can only do so much LOL! Lots of bits can be lost in translation!)

                • Pablo says:

                  Yeah they are kinda of connected… but yeah the translation is awful srry… I am going to try to read the novel for the movie on baka tsuki and send yen press 20 emails a day asking them to please translate the series… And i might also buy the japanese light novels myself and figure out a way to translate them myself…

                  • Eva says:

                    XD Don’t send them 20 emails a day- that will only annoy them! You could send one, but just suggesting it in their threads works well too, especially when people back you up saying they want it too. Twitter may be optional too.
