The skies is a vast and mysterious place. It’s unlimited and holds infinite potential for sky pirates and aviators of war. For a young pilot named Kal-el Albus, he’s looking for more than just flying the skies. He’s looking for revenge for the harsh life that he’s endured during a time period known as the ‘Wind Revolution’. But now as a young man, he embarks on a journey along with his sister Ariel to discover more than just riding the winds.

Taking place in the same world as the movie Toaru Hikushi E No Tsuioku, this show holds little similarity besides its initial setting. In other read more

Just by looking at the title (Love Song of a Pilot), the description, and a preview, most people will get the impression that this is a heavy-hitting drama with a beautiful romance augmented by plenty of flying through the skies. I’m pretty sure that description up there also suggests Toaru Hikuushi no Koiuta will cover touching themes as well, such as how hate can be conquered by finding love. The setup is fairly enticing. You’re probably thinking this is a story that will hit your heart.

**No spoilers** The Pilot's Love Song is a mix of drama, romance and action, though I would say it leans toward primarily being a drama. The show starts with a relatively easygoing feeling, but gets much more serious by the halfway point and remains so until the end.

The main theme that this series focuses on is the reality of war, which includes the concepts of overcoming fear, accepting loss and the importance of forgiveness through love. There is a fairly decent-sized cast of side characters without being too overwhelming, and there are several romantic interests among them which helps to keep your interest even if read more

Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta (The Pilot's Love Song) is a story that primarily focuses on the growth of the main character Kal-el, the adventure that he goes on, and his love story. Set in a fantasy-esque setting, the show tries to produce images like the "holy spring" or the "end of the sky". The story starts out with a day-to-day pilot school setting but later shifts to a battlefront setting.

Almost immediately, the show attempts to dive into the romantic zone. It tries to go for the classic "love at first sight" complete with romantic scenery and music instead of a gradual development between the read more

Anime: Last Exile
Main characters from both series are duo pair pilots. Clause and Kal-El are the one controlling the plane while Lavie and Ariel are the navigators. Both series taking place in the sky and living on floating islands. Last Exile's story can be very similar to Toaru Hikushi e no Koiuta. Both series have great movie visuals and animations.

Anime: Allison to Lillia
Main characters from both series ride on a plane. They go off on an adventure. Civil war breaks out between countries/nations and they are caught in the middle of it. They must stop the war from happening and change the world for the better. The main characters ideals/views will be tested. Stunning animation, characters, music/OST and visual are presented in both series.

Anime: Senjou no Valkyria
Taking place in a time of warfare, both series focuses on its characters and their experiences as soldiers/pilots during such a crisis.

The main male protagonist is both determined, strong willed, and has combat experience. Despite the odd relationship he has with some of the others, he proves himself to be a capable soldier during critical times of need.

There is an adventurous style the way both series are presented with secrets, revelations, and a past that unfolds itself throughout their stories. Expect stellar action, drama, and also bits of romance.

Anime: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
In both shows:
There are characters who hide their real identity.
Someone from the noble class is living a normal life.
Characters hide their feeling of hatred while acting as good people.

In Code Geass people fight with mecha, in Toaru they use airplanes.
