Sora no Otoshimono second season greenlit

16 03 2010

A wrap-around on the latest edition of the Sora no Otoshimono manga release has announced a second season of the anime series.

Sora no Otoshimono is the story of a boy whose wishes for absolute normalcy are destroyed when he saves an angel. The angel hands him a chain attached to a collar around her neck and tells him she’ll grant him any wishes he wants; but he’ll have to be careful what he wishes for.

No word on when the second season will debut, but the manga series has sold 1.5 million copies of its seven volumes.

See a video of the opening here: (Sora no Otoshimono).

Sora no Otoshimono flying panty-fest event planned

1 02 2010

In a spirit of general Japanese randomness, an event involving real flying pantsu (women’s underwear) is planned in homage to the manga/anime series Sora no Otoshimono in March.

The event is meant to mimic the ending sequence of the anime series, in which a flock of flying pantsu is seen soaring in formation. Called Sora Fes!, the event will feature ornithopters (airplanes with flying wings) shaped like pantsu.

Tickets to event are around $11, and for twice the price an attendee may return home with one such ornithopter. Also available at the event will be a workshop on constructing ornithopters.

Early Impressions: Sora no Otoshimono

Sora no Otoshimono

It might be easy to write off Sora no Otoshimono as a cheap piece of juvenile fantasy. After all, the plot centers on an ordinary high school student who rescues an angel, who just happens to have a magical collar around her neck that, when imprinted, gives sole posession of its chain to said ordinary boy. In other words, the show seems to be based on a fetish of having a beautiful woman willingly chained to an adolescent boy, with the promise of fulfilling any wish he desires.

So it might be a surprise when the boy (Tomoki) asks first for money, then to be invisible so that he can spy on all the attractive girls at his school, read dirty magazines, and eat a gourmet meal in his room. Seems most American teenage boys would have thought much worse things to do in such a situation. Tomoki, who tells us early on that he desires normalcy and peace above all else, seems to go against this premise, until one of his wishes backfires.
