Sora no Otoshimono [Manga]

Sora no Otoshimono
そらのおとしもの
Lost Property of the Sky

Spoiler for covers:


2 Volumes out, on-going

Manga-ka: Minazuki Suu

Discovered the existence of this manga while looking at the Japanese Judas covers (why must the English version have different covers...).

Nowhere has a synopsis so...
Then... translation of JP wiki article (and adding a bit)
Quote:
Sakurai Tomoki is a normal student whose motto is "Normal is the best". If there is one thing abnormal, it is that he often dreams of a girl whose face he cannot even remember, and when he wakes up from that dream, he would always be crying. He tried leaving it as just a dream... but one day, from the sky, an angel descended.
As far as I have read, it has proven to be a really enjoyable manga. It mostly focuses on comedy (so far), and it really is funny with constant uses of chibi forms and such. And at the same time, it sometimes gets pretty serious and mysterious...

Characters are pretty basic, I guess (but likable). Childhood friend Mitsuki Sohara, the very strange Sugata Eishirou, mysterious and emotionless Ikaros (the girl that fell from the sky), and the basic protagonist, Sakurai Tomoki. As Tomoki describes the three, "killer chop woman" - "sky-flying pervert" - "UMA".
For a protagonist, Tomoki really was entertaining, like when he started going out of control using Ikaros' card, which can do anything and such (scary... really...).
Art is great, as expected.

I just hope this manga doesn't end in a way similar to Judas or something (not that I hated Judas' end or anything).
Speaking of Judas, Zero made a cameo...

Here's the link to a sample from vol.1 (note: the chapter sample is not chp.1)
http://www.kadokawa.co.jp/tachiyomi/...200707000141/#

I recommend trying out the manga! No, it doesn't seem any group is translating this though!

Looks interesting not to mention there's an angel involved.
I'll give it a try now. *adds to list*

Well since there aren't any scanlations out, and it's not in the been released anywhere else to my knowledge, I doubt all that many people here except those able to already easily read Japanese can get too interested at the moment.

I can't even find Japanese raws; the only source I have are Chinese scanlations. But the manga itself does look pretty interesting, and it isn't as generic as supah em makes it out to be.

Just looked up to ch31, more than enough material for the 13(14) ep anime.

I suspect a lot more folks are since the Anime was released. It will be interesting to see how a series that appears to try to integrate DearS and Saikano works out...

I read this series though didn't know a manga thread existed. I'm pretty sure with the anime airing now more people are bound to join the discussion.

Just read 2 volumes and I'm surprised. I thougth it'd be some random ecchi story but it's really enjoyable and fun. Besides there're serious parts sometimes and touching scenes. Not bad.
Spoiler for vol 2.:

Wouldn't be surprise if the bath chapter is the unaired episode for the TV series.

I'm reading this, but the fact that the manga is a monthly release series makes me sad...;~; I've re-read ch1-31 twice now...waiting for the next chapter to be released.

Man don't wanna spoil myself. I'd better be an anime only watcher for now.

I'll just save the images.

OK, for those of us who've read the Manga up to the latest chapter scanned, and who obviously don't mind spoilers, would someone care to fill us (or at least me) in on what happens between chapter 11 and chapter 31?

Thanks in advance!

ahaha sorry I cant go that far in memory ^^ 20 chapters its a lot of things... anyway its in japanese so its not much of understanding.... anyway besides some "gags only" chapters that have not much with the story the main thing taht is appening now is that...... the heaven-world is rulled by some crazy angel-guy with 2-3angel like slaves (femalse that stick like whores to him...in easy language ^^).... only 1girl-angel [dont know what she is for the main character but its her that he met long ago... and he was dreaming about her while when he was wakeing up he was allways crying] is there to try and gain help
Spoiler for guh.... bad memory xD:

Very interesting! I suspect the Anime won't get through even half of this, and so am glad to know there is a reason to hope for a second season. Thanks!

Someone was talking about this on Cracked forums, it's interesting how it got licensed so fast, I guess a lot of precautions get taken with new works or something? I can give it a try on Crunchyroll, much as I dislike streaming. Viewing ads is fine, but I'd rather it be in a toolbar or something and still get to dl for those of us with bad net connections.

It must be pretty good if it was protected ahead of time, kinda like FMA or SE.

31 chapters, but each chapter is 35 to 40-some pages long so there's a lot of material. And I mean a LOT. Just know that there's way too much to fit it all into a 12 ep anime without a 2nd or 3rd season, without a lot of cutting.


zibi88's summary opens up new dimensions of confusing so I'll summarize in a nutshell:


Spoiler for ch11-31:


Seriously awesome manga, seriously. You can tell the story gets cooler as it goes on by how my language changes.


EDIT: I had a part of the summary wrong, fixed.
