Synopsis

Asaba Naoyuki is an ordinary high school student. As a member of his school's press club, he's just spent the summer camping outside the local military base, in hopes of seeing the UFOs that are secretly kept there, according to local legend. Returning to school, he meets a strange girl, Iriya Kana, and gradually comes to realize that she is more than merely strange - and that a dark secret lies beneath the world that he knows.

Sounds Saikano-ish? You bet. I haven't seen Saikano myself, but this one gave me a mental breakdown; much less than Iriya herself experienced in the anime, but more than what I experienced after watching any anime (except for Now and Then, Here and There, perhaps) so far.

The 2005 vintage anime is a both sweet and dark love story, intermeshed with sparse humor and lingering suspense that draws you into the story. From episode 1 to 6, the mood changes dramatically, from somewhat ecchi humor in the first, to a quite of a heartbreaking finale. However, the speed is just perfect, not too fast to cram read more

Overall: Iriya no Sora, was a very touching anime, albeit short with only 6 episodes. I enjoyed watching this series very much.

Story: Its a sci-fi kind of romance story, that I dig, so some people arent into the romance thing, and its up to them if they wish to watch. One thing is that since there are only a few episodes, they didnt do very much explaining, some things are left completely in the dark.

Art: The art was very good, usually pretty colorful and rich, especially in those memorable moments where you feel kinda warm and fuzzy inside.

Sound: Not a bad opening and closing for read more

"Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu". I saw this was recommended to people who enjoyed Saikano, so i thought i'd give it a try. Even though the story seemed awkward from the synopsis, i was actually looking forward to it.
My first impression was "Oh, i hate how the main character is drawn". I decided to let it be, that i wouldn't let such a minor detail smuther my enjoyment, since i had heard and read good things about this. Fortunately, he was the only eye-sore. The art was pretty well made, and in the end it was one of the best qualities of this read more
