Alderamin on the Sky Series Review

Overview: Alderamin on the Sky follows Ikta Solork, a fairly lazy and apathetic young man, who unfortunately finds himself forced into joining his country's military along with his childhood friend. Review: For a series that is riddled with issues, Alderamin manages to be a pretty entertaining series. It isn't perfect by any means and it … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Series Review

Alderamin on the sky Episode 13

Review: Ikta finally woke up and figured out a plan to get around the unsleeping guy and that was nearly anti-climatic in the end. Not because turning the tables mid-battle with words alone (after a show of force) isn't impressive, but the fact that it happened mid-episode followed by a stilted and awkward conversation between … Continue reading Alderamin on the sky Episode 13

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 12

Review: With one episode to go there weren't any surprises this week but that didn't stop this episode from being dramatic and engaging. It was excellent to see Ikta and Yattori's relationship continue to be a pertinent motivator even amongst the crisis. It was also great to see Torway not just be involved in the … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 12

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 11

Review: After setting up a conflict between two geniuses last week, this episode really just had the two of them testing the other out. As a result, we had a skirmish with some loss of lives but nothing really decisive. Everything really feels like it is just waiting for the real show to begin. With … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 11

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 9

Review: It feels now like this battle is getting stretched out for the sake of it. While there are some very cool moments in the battle and Ikta has a few moments of self-reflection, overall nothing really progresses. The military are still trampling through the mountains, blindly trying to fight an enemy that knows the … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 9

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 8

Review: Continuing the battle in the mountains things take a turn for the worse this episode due to the inept command and lack of preparation for a battle that by all appearances the commanders instigated but weren't ready for. While this helps to endear us further to the core group and to really feel for … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 8

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 6

Review: While from a plot point of view this episode seems weaker (just another obvious set-up for Ikta to show off his amazing brain), the characters and the writing of this anime continue to make for a pleasant viewing experience. The change of location was nice and the interactions between characters, new and old, were … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 6

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 5

Review: I kind of know I'm into a show when they deliver a whole episode of flashback and I still love it. They timed this perfectly. Just when they've shown how well Yatori and Ikta work together we go back to where it all started for them. It's a cute and charming episode and the … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 5
