Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm (Beyond the sky, into the firmament)



Anime adaptation for visual novel 'Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm' confirmed. Apparently, it's based on this VN:

https://vndb.org/v12849

Description/Premise:
Quote:
In a world where flying is as simple as riding a bicycle, there is a popular sport called “Flying Circus.”

The protagonist once had a bright future ahead of him in that field of sports but due to an overwhelming defeat in addition to a certain other reason, he has left that field.
However, he meets the transfer student Kurashina Asuka and regains his passion as he teaches her how to fly.

With his situation changed, he participates once again in the Flying Circus. Just how high will he be able to fly this time with Asuka at his side?

This is a love story about the two who met while soaring in the skies, and the friends surrounding them.

Huh... I'm a little bit surprised because of the similar designs but it seems that I must withdraw the last statement. Akinashi Yuu isn't involved in this title at all.

Proof should be here: https://twitter.com/akinashi_yu/stat...77946194776064

I can't confirm it, though because I dont't really understand the language. Artists are Suzumori and Yuuki Itsuka according to getchu and similar databases or ANN.

The studio will be Gonzo and is set to premiere in January (Winter) 2016. The official site has a domain address but it isn't working yet.

There was a preview of the first episode a few days ago. Here are some shots of it. Any impressions from those who read the VN?

More reason there needs an anime series based on girls' gymnastics!

Hmm........

This seemed pretty generic although the artwork looks fresh. Character designs looks familiar compared to Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate. The music and setting has an atmospheric feeling to it. And well, idk how I feel about Kurashina. Maybe we'll understand more about her character soon.

It's all about lowering air resistance. Cute designs don't hurt either.

A pretty reasonable start. Was a bit surprised at Asuka being basically the main character of the episode considering its source material. Though her being new at this thing and the catalyst for the story to take off, I suppose it does make sense.

Certainly Asuka is a bundle of energy if nothing else. The kind of person who will get the story moving. While pretty clumsy in a lot of ways, does apparently have some talent for this sport inside of her.

The cast seems alright. Misaki basically gets to be 2 characters with the variation between her morning self and afternoon self. May be one of the more varied members of the cast going from tired in the mornings, energized later in the day and also seems to reach the middle ground well enough.

Hinata seems like a reasonable male lead for the show. Once we see more of his backstory should get a better feel for him.

Solid start.

My Lord, something about this episode seriously annoyed the hell out of me. Aside from the protagonist, everyone else is like screeching nails on chalkboard. We've got a girl who speaks too much, too loud, and in the most annoyingly obnoxious manner, an osananajimi with almost similarly personality, and then another girl who keeps spouting random nonsense like it's supposed to be funny or anything. Just 15 minutes into the episode, and it already drained my energy down to critical point. Seriously, what's with VN and heroines with erratic speech patterns and obnoxious behaviours?
