This was a moving SF adventure/romance that played over the first half of 2005. It was six episodes based on a four-volume novel, so the story had to be telescoped considerably, but the job was done pretty well.

On the last night of summer vacation, Asaba sneaks into the school pool for a swim. To his surprise, he finds an unknown girl already there. She is a new transfer student in his class, and she turns out to have a secret after-school job.

The cast helped make it work:
Iriya -- Nonaka Ai (Ichijou-san in PaniPoni Dash!, Miko in Kamichu!, etc. -- a real up-and-coming soft moe voice)
Asaba -- Namikawa Daisuke (Koyuki in Beck, Kamishiro Maiku in Onegai Twins, etc. -- what a great, direct voice he has)
Akiho -- Chiba Saeko (Dokuro-chan, Chika-chan in Ichigo Mashimaro, Natsuki in Mai-Hime, Momo in Peach Girl, Ai in Noein, etc., etc.)

There's nothing like the return of the Iriya thread. *Watches again*

I'm happy to see that this thread has been restored - Thanks to Neo-sam!

Iriya was a surprise gem for me. I didn't know a thing about the series, and I only got the first episode because my download queue was empty and I saw that there were only six episodes. But that turned out to be one of the best choices of the year. I've got the CD version of the OP loaded into my MP3 player random rotation, and I still get a lump in my throat every single time it comes on.

Anybody know if there might be a small OVA to wrap up the open end of this series?

Why the lukewarm response to thios one? Based on the first two eps, it's really damn good.

Exclamation Wow.

Speechless. Watched all six episodes back to back to back.

I have lots of unanswered questions though.

Spoiler:


I really liked this - it was short, but not too short but was gripping and
really sucked me in somewhat similarly to Honey & Clover.

The original response was not lukewarm at all. There was a lot of information and conversation in the Iriya no Sora forum before the hack. But since the series came out in 2005 and the backups were from 2004 year end, all those posts are now gone. But now that another group is subbing Iriya, interest may pick back up and some of the original group of viewers might check back in.

Mmmm, fair enough. It's just that absent more available posts here, I searched out as many reviews and such as I could find elsewhere, and the general reaction seemed to be "pretty decent". Maybe what I saw wasn't representative of the opinions around here...

I thought the series was decent. Not too great, not too horrible. You have the god-blessed, luck of the devil male protagonist (who, for some reason, is liked by by one or more of the female casts), the childhood friend who is inlove with him, and the mysterious new anemic, transfer student who's really an alien slaying princess in disguise. I'll give the protagonist a bit of props in this series, at least he isn't the normal 'oh what shall I do! WAH! WAH!' male loser that modern anime seems to be churning out by the second. He at least showed some initiative in what he wanted and how he felt. Instead of taking the back seat and watchings things unfold to his favor. My only problem is with the ending, it leaves things open and there really isn't any closure. It leaves you thinking, "What the frikk'n beeper was this all about in the first place!"

Worth downloading and watching, but isn't something I felt needed to to be kept. So after viewing the series twice in a row, I took it off my hard-drive.

I'm still blown away by this, Honey & Clover, and episodes of
Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora in one month and I'm shattered
in a way. But good!

Thanks for the hints and tips. I think if I watch it again I'll notice
that.

This anime is absolute poetry. Really great.

Just one small note. Carrier Ticonderoga doesn't exist. In reality the Tico is an escort cruiser.

Agreed. I was really blindsided by this one - not expecting all that much based on the relative lack of buzz. What a gem.

Oh, and the expression on Asaba's face while he was reading the pornos in the convenience store (ep #5) was absolutely priceless...
