Long ago the Gods of the heavens fought with humans over the Akuto – a power that can create anything. Now, separated by time and space from the realm of humans, a war is raging between the heavens over the little remaining Akuto. As the floating Magical Kingdom is on the brink of destruction, both worlds are in danger and there is now only one hope for salvation. King Munto of the Magical Kingdom descends to earth in order to find Yumemi, a thirteen year old girl who has always been able to see the islands in the sky. He explains that when his kingdom falls, the human territory will become a land of death and Yumemi’s hidden powers are the only way to prevent it. But can Yumemi’s ability really solve everything when the fear of such power causes the fighting to escalate?

Sora wo Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai (Munto TV) Plot: "Long ago the Gods of the heavens fought with humans over the Akuto – a power that can create anything. Now, separated by time and space from the realm of humans, a war is raging between the heavens over the little remaining Akuto. As the floating Magical Kingdom is on the brink of destruction, both worlds are in danger and there is now only one hope for salvation. King Munto of the Magical Kingdom descends to earth in order to find Yumemi, a thirteen year old girl who has always been able to see the islands in the sky. He explains that when his kingdom falls, the human territory will become a land of death and Yumemi’s hidden powers are the only way to prevent it. But can Yumemi’s ability really solve everything when the fear of such power causes the fighting to escalate?" (site synopsis) Story: One thing i got to admit is that before starting to watch this anime, i did not had much expectation about it, it never passed through my mind that it will be that good considering the fact that it is such a short anime and the theme that depicts is so overused, it all came to presentation, and if that failed, then whole this show could've been considered another failure. Another example of an anime that exceeds my expectation and a good example that you don't need a long term show to develop a simple yet good story. Sora wo Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai (or simply put Munto TV) in my opinion is one of the best animes that came out in 2009, even though its short, only 9 episodes, it doesnt leave you with empty feelings at all like many short animes do. The story is centered on a high school girl named Yumemi, apparently normal one, but just apparently because she has the ability to see floating islands in the sky! (the heck!) its like she could see a projection of another world as if she did not belong to the one she currently lives. Even so she was able to live a normal life with her family and especialy with her friends, Ichiko and Suzume, although she is not aware of the events that were taking place in Heaven, unaware that the events which are taking place in Heaven will affect her and her world, unaware that she is the only one who can help to save both worlds and bring peace and stabilization. Desperate to save the world, the king of the Magical Kingdom, Munto and his brethren, descendes from Heaven into the Lower World to contact the person who he believes that it might save the world, Yumemi. After a few atempts to prevent her, which ended up as failures, he finaly managed to convince her to believe in him. The plot was done well enough to make you interested and captivated during the whole show, the only thing that i can complain is that it was abit short, but i have high hopes for another sequel, or at least some OVAs. Another big complaint about it is that the ending was left completely unresolved, with a big clifhanger which makes me believe that eventualy this show will get a second season or at least a decent anime adaptation that could make a conclusion for this show. Animation and Sound: In terms of animation this anime is briliant, excelent.I totaly liked the designs of this anime.The character designs were also well done, nothing to complain here, realy was amazed about the quality and the design of some characters like Munto or Gass. At the moment im still trying to remember the sound.Well the opening song was listenable as well as the ending song, which fit the anime perfectly, nothing more.Some background sounds were also decent, nothing to complain, nothing that could have ruined this anime in terms of sound. Characters: Related to characters, this anime has a nice character development, especialy at the begining till the middle of this anime.Even individualy some of the characters were developed pretty well, despite the fact that this anime was so short. Overall: More than watchable, pretty enjoyable, captivating, and with some fierce battles that keep you in suspense this are the things that characterize this anime.For people that love fantasy animes this is a must to watch, and for those who are not that much into fantasy anime i still recommend it because aside from the very well defined fantasy aspect this anime is enjoyable in other aspects. ~Enjoy and Cya Around~
