From watching the trailer, the girl's definitely a vampire, or she has some sort of phobia to daylight.

I'm not liking the voices for the main characters especially the girls voice.

You... you don't like Mamiko Noto?! Heretic! Burn him!

On a more serious note, I really like the voices for the main characters. I guess different folks, different strokes.

Well, the Sola PV is out from Doremi-fansubs, I'm still confused on the overarching plot though... Well, at least there' bishoujos, guys with swords, a girl who likes rain, and Mamiko Noto.

Hmm... I like Noto Mamiko too, and I am excited that she is getting a lead role in a romance story, but there does seem to be a conflict between her character-design/behaviour and her voice (hearing her in the audio-only preview was much better).

This is just my initial impression however. I will await the first few episodes before forming a more concrete opinion.

Cheers.

I was impressed with the audio prologue (off to check out the PV). Its on my initial checkout list just because of the mood and the rain.

I got no problems with her voice as a side character but her as a main characters voice would irratate me. Her voice fits well like with Nodoka but here I just don't see it.

Same here I don't see her voice matching with the lead character character/design when I heard her voice it just didn't fit well.

It isn't her first main character role you know. She was Enma Ai in Jigoku Shoujo, Hazuki in YamiBou, Mitsuki in Hit wo Nerae, the eponymous characters of Naru no Sekai and Melody of Oblivion and umm... Masane in Witchblade. Okay, at least that last one should keep her humble.

Give her a chance and I'm sure she'll grow on you.

Well, her voice was not what i expected, but i think i like it. Either way - this still reeks of tragedy. "A story of girls being played with by destiny". Don't know if she is a vampire (i have my doubts...namely - nothing being shown about this one the matter... unless what she really is is going to be kept a secret until late in to the series. Perhaps she has some kind of a curse or something, preventing her walking outside in sun ?

Sigh I guess I can try.

There is an actual Disease in real life that could be deadly to people called xeroderma pigmentosum.

Quote:
"X.P." is short for xeroderma pigmentosum, a rare genetic condition that prevents sun-damaged skin cells from repairing themselves. Affecting only one in a million people, the incurable disease could lead to skin cancer if extreme steps aren't taken to avoid all ultraviolet light, including indirect light from windows and fluorescent bulbs. Nationwide, only about 250 people are documented with the disorder, most of them children, states Dr. Kenneth Kraemer, a research dermatologist at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland. X.P. sufferers are more than 1,000 times as likely to develop skin cancers as other people.
This girl's story reminded me a bit of what I saw in the trailer for Sola:

It might be due to Mamiko Noto's voice, but as for character design and also for mysteriousness the protagonist strongly reminds me of Tsukamoto Yakumo.
Anyway, this series looks very intriguing and it's in my spring list since a long time. I don't really know what to expect, but I have this feeling that I'll like it.

I made a few avatars from the PV, though just two of them are animated, seen the lack of fitting scenes.





The girl with red eyes and azure hairs looks almost exactly like Tomoko (Canvas 2). The character design in general, is excellent.

Tomoko FTW of course.... I can probably guess she's also got the same deadpan humor....

Noooo! There can only be one Tomoko. Besides, judging from the Prologue Audio-Drama, she is going to be the "quiet" elder sister of the male protagonist. Yes, that's right. The elder sister. Not to mention that her hairstyle is totally different.

ADD] Probably the one thing that threw me off the loop was Takeshi who seemed to be using "flash-lighting" and a sword against Matsuri. This is the same guy who is the guardian of the "loopy" girl who likes to hide in dustbins.

So this probably means that Matsuri is the girl that Takeshi is looking for.

Connecting the characters in this preview to the Audio-Drama is fun for speculation.

Natch.

Aono (that's the name of the azure haired girl) remembered me of Tomoko more at avatar size than at normal screen size, it's there that you see more how the haircut is different. And yes, she does look more on the quiet side , especially from her look. It's quite surprising to have Nakahara Mai voicing her, as she usually is kinda energetic.

Speaking of which, I was checking the seiyuu cast just now, and I have to say it is fantastic. Not only the Nakahara Mai and Mamiko Noto, but also Koshimizu Ami, Shimizu Ai, Fujiwara Keiji and even the lovely Yahagi Sayuri! And I'm forgetting someone too... but this team is definitely stellar.

A promising series by pretty much every point of views. My only fear at the moment would be about the "12 episodes", depending on how deep is going to be the story. Certainly it's too early for such worries but let's say I'm never happy when a show I'm quite highly anticipating will run just for one kur.

Ahaha, I'm already sold on this. It should most definitely fill the void in my heart that has been emassed waiting for Clannad! To Sola, we go~

Which reminds me, a post on the last page seemed to be curious that "Sola" is in fact a spelling error of "Sora". I believe this to be the case, given that the Japanese have, in prior times, accidentally replaced r's with l's when romanising words. But anyway...

Yeah, the usage in the trailer gives it away.... "sola"=="sora"=="sky"

The japanese are famous for loving romaji in a visual/pictorial way as well and it may be that "sola" just looked nicer than "sora" to them.

People often forget that romaji is just a rough approximation anyway (for that matter, the -kana themselves are sometimes just rough approximations to the sounds being made: the "su" or "shi" pronunciation style in verb endings depending on the regional dialect for example).

Yeah, and it makes all us Spanish natives scratch our heads at it.
