**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 is a good story that calls you to the adventure and the exploration of a nicely conceived world, a premise that can catch you from the very first episode and will keep you curious about what are you going to discover at the conclusion of the long trip and whats hidden behind the bambalina. At least the development has an appropiate pace.
Sadly, this plot turns to be rather shallow, and good twists at the end are overshadowed by an simplistic and coarse approaching of war, which is carried out for the simple fact of fighting to add a dramatical touch, 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

It is in my opinion, one of the best tearjerkers after Clannad. Dont start that thing about other anime having better tearjerker moments than this one because this is purely in my personal opinion. A clear plot, a few twists and turns, but so far, a really good anime to watch and rewatch. This, however needs a season 2 simply because it lacks enough story to fill up all the details that it presented.

Good, well rounded anime, it is a personal favorite and a must watch.

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: 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.

Anime: Senjou no Valkyria: Gallian Chronicles
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.
