A really nice episode. It is not as funny or as silly as the first special, still it is a really good episode.

Spoiler for Special 2:


Yeah, too bad no more Sola. The scanlation project is also dead.
I am hoping for a Takeshi-Mayuko spin-off.

I had no idea how much I have missed the music in this show. Absolutely mesmerizing and soothing. Mentorian pretty much sums things up for me as well by saying: "this is a really nice episode that reminds me why I liked Sola so much." For me, it was the atmosphere the show captured through out the series.



The episode serves as a prologue to the series.

Now this was an excellent episode. If the previous one was meh, this one fully managed to capture the charm of the characters and the nostalgic atmosphere that so quickly drew me in to the original. I can only nod and agree with the aforementioned "this is a really nice episode that reminds me why I liked Sola so much." And we even got to learn where Matsuri gets her money from This is how extra episodes should be done.

Anyway my thoughts are split into two camps :

I liked it yet was hoping for an explanation for the last scene in sola. This is one of the few series in recent times I got so emotionally involved in that I could hardly bear to see it end. More than anything else, it brought back those same feelings of loss and nostalgia...much like everyone else who's posted up to this point.

Seems so...

Well, right now, I'm listening to the Special CD dramas.


Only other new Sola will be manga and game (whenever that comes out).

Sola 15 is out for over a month now and no one seems to be subbing it. -___-

Is it already licensed?

Nope, not from my knowledge. I guess the sub groups are busy or something.

That's a relief, hope a group would pick it up soon.
I see that most comments for it on this thread are positive. Second DVD special must be really good.

A surprisingly nice prequel that really uses Sola's fantastic music to bring out the unique tone of the series. Could have used more Matsuri, you can never have too much Matsuri.

A perfect "conclusion" to a series I enjoyed greatly. As mentioned, the music is fantastic and the mood is just right. I'm sad to see Sola come to an end, but they did such an excellent job with this episode, I'm thoroughly pleased.

This was rare territory for a "special" episode, very much capturing the mood and magic of the original series. It felt and looked like a part of the larger whole and not a free-standing structure. Sadly, that it was so good was cause to remember how much I miss this show, and how empty the ending left me feeling. Much like life, you can't have the joy of the relationship without the eventual pain of saying goodbye.

Definitely. I wanted more Matsuri.

It was a nice episode. It nice to see how Mana hated the sky in this prequel and how she eventually grows to love the sky in the "last" episode (episode 13).
