Yorito Morimiya is obsessed with the sky. He especially loves taking pictures of its array of different faces—sunrises, sunsets, clouds. On one of his early-morning excursions to photograph the sunrise, Yorito meets a strange girl engaged in an argument with a vending machine. By the time that Yorito forces the girl's tomato juice out of the machine, she's vanished without a trace.

Sola follows the story of Yorito, his sister Aono, and their childhood friends Mana and Koyori Ishizuki, as well as that of a mysterious girl who appears and disappears, and who seems to harbor a dark secret. In a world where magic and the supernatural are never far below the surface and no one is who they seem to be, love and loneliness vie for supremacy beneath Yorito's sky.


Sola was the first anime written by Hisaya Naoki after leaving game publisher Key.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...

Preliminary (5/13 eps)
A guy who worships skies just met a very weird girl that can fly, fighting against a man holding a sword, in a creepy church. That's normal right? The man sent her flying again and she was thrown in a cemetery. You see, it's the middle of the night, and what does the guy think is the normal thing to do? Yeah, you guessed it: looking for the weird STRANGER girl and TAKING HER HOME. Pfft, that's very normal! He then proceeds to invite her to stay at his place even after hearing that she is a curse and she's not human. Wow, so logical! ...
