Sora no Woto episode 4:Glass Blowing!

This episode seemed focus on developing Noel. While nothing was developed that I wasn’t predicting involving her, at least we get more world building.

I loved the use of rain to convey emotions in this scene.

When Kanata and Noel enter the city, it is scarily quiet. I do know that the population is depleted, but still, the city is unnatural. It is suppose to be bustling and full of noise, not a city with empty streets and silence.

The glass factory was an unexpected surprise. I love the art of glass blowing. Enough that this summer I’m hoping to go to Michigan just to do a glass blowing workshop and try it myself.

They don’t shy away from the cost of war. There’s the child that hates soldiers and has the lost his parents. There are the artisans who had to change from making art to helping make glass products for the war. Just a glimpse, as in the last episode, but that glimpse is chilling. The costs for the war were high, and apparently it’s still not over for these poor people.

War is tough.

I’m surprised that no one has mentioned Kanata’s skill yet for being able to tell the note from a sound. I can’t remember the technical name for it, or have any idea what I’d need to look up to find it, but it’s an interesting skill. It’s argued whether it’s a learned skill, or whether some people have it and some don’t. I’m thinking the anime is taking the latter route.

Actually, it's really hard to tell when you're an anime character...

To be honest, I’m not that interested in the characters. The character development in this episode, to me, felt somehow forced. Also, there’s no way Kanata could get down learning the trumpet that fast, but I’ll overlook that for the sake of fitting this series into 13 episodes.

  1. The technical name is absolute pitch, but people usually refer to it as perfect pitch. I think Noel uses the term near the end of the episode. An interesting ability to be sure.

    • While I’m pretty much willing to let things rest, and move on with my life, that doesn’t make me dislike you guys any less, and doesn’t make what happened hurt any less. I want nothing to do with you guys or try to have any sort of socialization with you guys. That includes commenting on my blog.

      The bridges are burned, can we just go our separate ways, have nothing to do with each other, and I can continue just quietly resenting and hating all of you?
