Along with the new Japanese girl who doesn’t really look Japanese (although to be fair, I guess Nodame doesn’t look very Japanese either).
On one hand, I’d be willing to say that a lot of the mystery is beginning to unfold. On the other hand, this is a Ryukishi joint, so there’s no reason to believe that the mystery’s solvable at face value.
Sora no Woto’s been pretty interesting so far. But the one thing I hadn’t been able to do was glom onto one character. Sort of surprising, since Kanata is like a mix between Aria’s Akari and K-ON’s Yui, and that kind of combo should be right up my alley. But in a surprise showing, I’ve fallen for the silent girl, Noel Kannagi, or basically Sanya v. Litvyak + Nagato Yuki. She’s just so cute when she’s being all narcoleptic (although I don’t think she should be allowed to operate any heavy machinery – that includes driving, as well as handling the Takemikazuchi in battle).
There were some laugh out loud moments in this episode, but they were mostly overshadowed by most of the dramatic breakthroughs. Oh nothing terribly melodramatic, but definitely some major events.
