Sola's story revolves around Yorito Morimiya, the main protagonist, who is a young boy attending high school. He loves taking pictures of the sky at any time of day and any time of the year. One day, Yorito decides to take a picture of the sunrise overlooking the bay, but is deterred when he meets a strange girl trying to force a vending machine that stole her money to give her what she tried to buy—a can of tomato juice. Yorito helps her with forcing the machine while attempting to strike up conversation with her, despite it being four in the morning. Yorito tells her why he is here, but by the time he has forced the can out of the machine, the girl has mysteriously vanished.

I just recently finished sola and I wanted to start off by saying that I am very strange in what interests me in an anime and instantly, from the first episode, I knew that I would love sola. The song in the introduction of the first episode caught at my soul and moved my heart and I also have a personal attachment to taking pictures of the sky and my digital camera, which is what the main character in this anime is like, of course he doesn't quite understand why he is obsessed with the sky, but there is a deep and wonderful meaning behind read more

Let’s check off the things that annoy me, shall we?

~ A world where kids conveniently don’t have parents. Because that would mean the writers would actually have to be skilful enough to write stories including them. The only featured adult in the whole story is obviously a hindrance to everyone, except midway when he suddenly becomes every male pervert's role model.

~ Girls that fawn over one witless guy who doesn’t deserve any of them. They fight to the death over him, but why should we care? Why should we be invested in any of this if we cant understand read more

As the title implies, this Romance, Drama is heavily themed on the sky (sola), which is definitely different than the usual anime but that may not always be a good thing. It’s quite interesting how something we take for granted like the sky can be such a treasure to other’s but it’s irritating that the bulk of the story has something to do about the sky.

The other main focus of the show is on the blossoming romantic relationship between the two main characters; Yorito is an average guy who’s obsessed with taking photos of the sky and Matsuri, she’s the “special girl” usually found in read more

As with any new review of mine, there is generally a TL;DR part at the end with a basic summary of the positives and negatives.

Ah… Sola, what a wonderful show. I had quite a bit of fun with this one, it kept me hooked enough to finish in two days. It would have been one if I didn’t exercise self-restraint, but I did, so it ended up being two days. One thing that really surprised me about this show was how mature it was handled, especially in the Romance aspect. It was well done, and a very believable romance. The show itself knows what read more

Anime: Air
Sola and Air are both tragic love stories riddled in mystery and supernatural abilities. A very short watch so if you prefer more drawn out anime then perhaps this is not going to be your cup of tea. If you enjoyed the way the writers choose to progress the story on an emotional level in one series then you're going to love it in the other. Similarly, if you hated how the director relied on mystery to keep the shallow love story alive in one anime you'll probably hate it in the other.

Anime: H2O: Footprints in the Sand
They're both really mysterious and are about a weird girl meeting a special boy.

Anime: Kanon (2006)
Both are pretty good anime drawn around one boy and both have their fair share of action and drama. Sola has a little more action and kanon has a little more drama. Both like talking about hopes and dreams though.

Anime: ef: A Tale of Memories.
The plot and characters are all fairly similar. Some of the genres are also the same, making ef ~ a tale of memories very likable, especially if you've seen sola.

Anime: Shakugan no Shana
This series are similar like SOLA, main character is a girl with superpower and SHANA are too.

Anime: Angel Beats!
Both Anime have simular art style. Both slowly build up to a climax.
