Sora no method is a story about a group of 6 kids and their friendship. The protagonist is a girl called Nonoka, who after an absence of 7 years goes back with her father to the town where she had lived previously. Hovering over this particular town is a giant alien saucer which has been hanging there in the sky for (surprise surprise) 7 years. Nonoka has just sketchy memories of the time she lived there as a little girl, but when she gets back she re-acquaints herself with her old friends and slowly her memories start getting clearer. Everything revolves around the saucer in the sky and the cute little girl called Noel who seems to have some mysterious link to the saucer and to the 5 kids. The visuals and animation are good, it's pleasing enough to watch. As for the sound, I just skipped OP and ED, while in general I didn't notice the background music nor was I disturbed by the voice acting - so all good in that respect. I think the characters are pretty average; each one has a distinct personality which comes across quite clearly but no one is particularly memorable; even though Noel is surely the one that you get to care about the most. The story too is narrated well in regards to pacing and atmosphere. All the previous mentioned aspects, even though I consider them to be good, cannot make up for the story's evident shortcomings.What makes this anime less than satisfying is the premise, the characters' motivation and the story itself which is quite lame. Just as an example, there are a couple of episodes dedicated to Yuzuki where her hatred for the saucer is really played up a lot; but when the reason for that hatred is revealed, you are just dumbfounded as to how lame it is. And this happens a lot. Good storytelling is not enough if the story itself isn't worth telling.
It's all worth getting to the last 3 episodes... But be prepared to cry for the last 3 episodes too.
Sometimes, there are anime that will give out strong emotion impact. To me, this time, Sora no Method holds this quality best, and I really mean it, best! All about the story of friendship in life, and friendship itself is the most important thing, that one should have, and should treasure in his/her whole life. Being with friends, especially the ones that already stayed beside you since childhood is another important quality that rarely one has chance to have. And if you have the chance to experience this feeling, that very moment, all I can say that you're among the lucky one ;) Treasure friendship, love you friends and family. And utmost important, love and support good (and strong impact) anime like Sora no Method! Totally recommends this!
