As long as there are sequels I'm all for open endings. So my score will go down if there never is a second season. I will also rage quite a bit.
Overall this was a good show, and remember, if you're gonna own 2 somewhat capable angels, make sure you really omgoverkillwtfbbqlolpwn them with a quadruple megabeam attached to a friggin battlecruiser from another dimension. 8/10.
Pantyshots are a different matter entirely

This is for all the people who think this episode was rushed trough. I will agree with you that it was a little, but if you go read the manga, you will see that this episode is actually better then it, there is like 2 pages for the whole battle, and for that I think that this episode was awesome!

It was a decent end. However, I feel no sympathy for Nymph whatsoever. For someone who used to act so high and mighty, Nymph is pretty damn stupid. At least Ikaros's badassery makes up for the lack of Nymph's common sense. Now where is my Astraea kthx.

That was very nice, didn't even feel rushed. New approaches to comedy, nice transitions to drama, 8/10 overall.

Unexpectedly amazing series is OMGWTF AMAZING.

Best show of Fall 2009? If I say so myself.

All we need now is season two and a bunch of merchandise to go with it. I'm tempted to buy a figurine of Ikaros someday. =)

way to many filler episodes and no plot progress, we could have gotten a really great emotional action story compressed into about 4 episodes of this anime. It had lots of potential to turn into a serious/emotional story about the Angeloids (Nymph and Ikaros), but the fan service kind of took away from that, which for me was a bit disappointing.
Four episodes is too long..XD and what you call filler episodes is actually the main plot in manga..chapter 15 is the last episode from anime and i suggest for those who will read the manga to start it from the 1st chapter, the anime change the timeline..

It won't be disappointing at least for me



LOL, sorry 2 episodes then :P
Ive read up til chapter 11 or 12 and stopped b/c I didn't want to ruin the anime ending for myself. To me the manga has a more serious tone to it than the anime did. Given there is also an ecchi tone to it as well, but Nymph's and Ikaro's past was told in a lot more detail and seemed more emotional in the manga.

They can't do all in 13 épisodes.
And if we look like, it's near 20 chapters for 13 épisodes.
But yes, they don't take that much for the two past ...
Oh they said about them ... But not so far detailed like you want.
You have to read. :o

But oh well. I gave it a 7.6/10 which rounds that up to a 8.

/more impressive was the Uranus System=>. I also wonder about the bomb of Nymph...did the timer stop because chain is cut or it can still blow her up? Overall high quality ecchi, good drame/comedy and action was good too. Probably the best scene of Ikaros that I would think...crying+weapon mode=>

Decided just for fun to analyze this Uranus System
It has 7 cannons and it can fire unlimited amounts of missiles that are homing and small in size=>
The missiles themselves are small little birds with a antenna kind of like normal missiles have a dome for their guidance system=>
Ok so a certain number of missiles can form into a sort of Pentagram and absorb any shot of energy then re fire it back with a amplification/splitting into many of that same beam? Impressive=>
It also has claws that trap anything into a bubble that is a shield...not sure what happens after to those Gammas=.
On top of that the system has these things that accelerate something with spinning discs=>
So that the 7 cannons can combine and fire a beam that even goes beyond Earth's atmosphere? With that Ikaros can destroy the whole Synapse kingdom=>

To summarize: I am the bone of my sword... I mean... GATES OF BABYLOWNED!!!
Seriously, anybody who ever watched the Fate anime or played the vn would think of that ^^
btw, that bomb in her neck was a bluff just to scare her.

I never seen that Fate thing but apart from being a farmer I have a secret passion for Science Fiction especially when it comes to spaceships (actually I have plastic models) but this Uranus system blew me off. That is just crazy in science fiction world so far to me. Maybe other animes have crazier things?

Seriously what did the animators do to Nymph? When Gamma appeard in the manga, Nymph was simply awesome and epic and in the anime she acts like a stupid girl.

You took a decent amount of ss didn't you lol. Uranus System was incredible, What is it exactly though. In a way it looked like a spaceship and then again, when Ikaros finished the fight and withdrew the Uranus System, it looked almost like a robot while withdrawing those two claws or whatever they were. But intense episode.
Stupid Gamma and Nymph's master. Ripping off Nymph's wings and vaporizing one of Ikaro's wings...oh..you d! sheads in the sky, you guys are gonna get a f! load of what im going to do, i'm not scared of fighting you slave driving angel bastards! bring it on!

Well, besides this episode, I wanna see what's going to happen with Tomo, Ikaro's, and Nymph. How their relation will end as well as with Sohara. Give me more of this! I want to do something about this angeloid crap!

I had not choice with the ss, it's to prove my points better but they are in spoilers so does it matter. :P I think it is more of a spaceship than robot. The claws are part of its anti intruder protection I guess. Unless the thing tranforms at one point...it would be hard to assume it's a robot.

wow.. i love it.. the whole plot and backstory itself is cliche but how they delivered everything, the epic ecchi stuff, the good fight animations, and the touching drama towards the end.. however, it wasn't able to make me excited enough to be very anticipating for every next ep so this anime gets a 9/10.. if there would be a 2nd season, perhaps we'll have type delta?..

I was looking forward to astraea. shes so funny but they only showed her at the end of the 12 episode when they named the final one. oh well hopefully she will be in a second season or ova. but still i dont like the way they changed Nymph in this episode. in the manga she flat out rejects to help gamma. and they ripped her wings out as a way of forcing her to comply. i thought that she was cooler then and i respected her more. but whatever, i still liked this episode and must say the whole series was done well. i hope for more.

That was...different.

IIRC, Nymph doesn't betray Ikaros in the manga and quickly attacks the other Angeloids when she realizes they were lying.

It was a great series though. Definitely the best of 2009 (only behind Nyan Koi!). ^_^

Hohohoh she left, bet he didn't expect that one, eh? ┐('~`;)┌
Although as expected, he's not going to just let it go with that, but he'll go after her ┐(-。ー')┌

Oh.. Okay.. So.. Ikaros.. Went lolwtfpwn-mode? ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌
Oh, did she manage to also blow a hole in the Synapse? ʘ‿ʘ

Anyway, Nymph was freed from those angelbastards, so I'm happy with this ending~
There's not much I'd want for a second season, so I guess there won't be any either. (Only thing would be to see Ikaros and Nymph go up to the Synapse to kick some ass.)
Tl;dr Cool story bro ( ´Д`)ノ(´・ω・`)
7. Too little Nymph.

it was pretty badass to see ikaros use all her powers but i felt this ending was pretty lacking otherwise. i guess i shouldn't have expected too much based on what kind of show it is. i still enjoyed it a lot though, i hope there is a season two, leaving things how they are now would just be a little too disappointing imo.

Didn't expect I'd ever say this but ...

Great ending! Yea, I completely liked how this was done.

Overall 9.5/10 so it'll automatically become 10/10 xPP (0.5 for the 1st eps of the series since I didn't like them xP)

This should really get a 2nd season!

and umm, excuse me, what's the putting of breaking Nymph's chain??

This has far exceeded Kampfer =)!

I'm sorry if it offended you, but that, IMO beats My tingling nipple song XD


EDIT:
Forgot to add my opinion of the show and this episode.
This episode is not good for the heart, dang that was sad...
Pretty cool series, can't believe I decided not to watch this when I first saw it on fall anime chart...

This anime is pretty nice, though I can find some of the joke funny, e.g exploading pansu, pansu bot, and the Tomoko episode bores me.
I love the serious plot, but the funny one are GREAT!!!!!!!!


My tingling nipple song makes me laugh like I haven't since Seto no Hanayome.

Sugata's history lesson is awesome, he somehow make history fun.
Sugata vs Mikako gun fight is top notch.

originally plan to give this show a 6/10. Adding up all the great moment as well as this episode, make it 7.4/10.

rounded up. 7/10

This series and the Uranus System were, without any doubt, so fucking awesome. I loved that scene where Ikaros goes badass mode. It’s too bad that Astraea is not there in the first season. Sora no Otoshimono is definitely the best comedy and best anime in Fall 2009. We absolutely want the second season.

Oh my, oh my, oh my. I'm speechless. It was so good man. So like, yea that's right. Get the fuck out of that town, you two harpies you. Uranus system anyone? Oh my, that was epic. Ikaros was just pwning everyone. Damn, that was so good.

Plus, I loved that friendship thing when they were saving Nymph. Oh my. I really wonder if Nymph's wings will grow back, just like Ikaros's. Yeah, your fucking heat cannons were too weak, just gtfo harpies please.

I NEED SECOND SEASON NAO. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THERE'S GOING TO BE A SECOND SEASON? MAN! What about the angel's master! The cruel bitch ass guy man. I want to see his face.

Like someone said, UNLIMITED URANUS WORKS!!! (or actually Gates of Uranus lol)

Overall, very good animation.

Surprisingly decent for an ecchi series. It somehow broke from the usual generic bunch.....

The manga looks very readable and the second season is pretty much a given looking at the popularity and success of this first season.

8/10
bla bla bla

Ah, that was a nice ending.
I was expecting a bit of etchiness at the end, just for completeness sake, but even without it the ending was still very nice.
Ikaros - Uranus mode is COOl! :D

So all-in-all, this was a much better series than I expected from the beginning, and it certainly exceeded the limitations of its premise.
Overall i gave a 8/10
