*A war between overly chatty AI.*

I know I have been saying this a lot lately and I have come to believe this personally too. One must endure the "hardship" of anime to ripe its fruit. By this I mean the often boring, below-your-expectation type first few episodes of an anime series. One must remember that if the anime is 24 or so episodes long, taking 4 to 6 episodes to get the necessary background out of the way is reasonable. Dropping the show when it is not even a quarter done is very disrespectful to the series. So with all that said, what does it read more

| It's tough to be a king without a crown |

You know how you watch some shows for deep story, while other you watch it because of the interesting characters or just because it looks like a high quality product. To be frank, Sora Kake is neither of them. Yet, it is quality. Quality indeed, but on a very different department.

One crucial thing that you must understand is that in Sora Kake things just happen. You don’t ponder about it and much less question it. It just is. The Girl who leapt through space is a show filled with idiocy and ridiculous situations leading read more

There is no doubt that Leopard is the character who makes this series. Don't get me wrong, it's not like the other characters are totally uninteresting, but his Lelouch-like rants and megalomania (even as an AI) single-handedly raise the score of this show by a full point.

Don't watch this if you're looking for a lot of plot intricacy or subtlety, I found that the pacing can be a little ADD-mode sometimes. Then again that might be exactly what you're looking for.

This series has been somewhat episodic so far, though there is obviously some buildup for a larger underlying plot. In the most recent episodes it read more

Now keep in mind i'm reviewing this series, with it essentially only half watched, and this is a one of the few reviews i HAVE written. I will most likely be revising this a little as i will finish watching this...however i don't expect it to change much of anything as i the feeling i have really just makes me want to stop before it gets worse. So before you hit that not helpful button, take a moment, to stop, think and ask yourself these questions.

Was there a story? Did they execute it well or not at all?

How was the art? Better or worse read more

Both main girls are very similar, space, powers, mecha. both great stories as well.
both have self conscious ai and mecha
Loveable mains Mouretsu has better feel well hey it pirates nothing like female pirates. Who wouldnt want to be taken prisioner by the captain
Has the same voice actor for lelouch. only 6 or so episodes out so storyline not developed yet but if you like lelouch, then you'll love him in a comedy style
Both are funny mecha animes about a cute girl with pink hair that has a sidekick friend that they always hang out with. The characters are similar, and so are the drawing styles, in particular the eyes, which look very similar to each other iin both animes.
Regular schoolgirls in semi-utopian space colonies - very similar feel.
