Yosuga no Sora Review – In Solitude, Where We Are Least Alone

Yosuga no Sora AnimeYosuga no Sora is an amazing anime that will pull at your heartstrings in some parts and make you laugh uncontrollably in others, it has taboo relationships in it but it’s nothing terrible or disgusting so keep an open mind when you watch this show. if you really cannot bear with taboo relationship, then you should think that this anime is never existed. But, if you are still wondering whether this anime can entertain you or not but afraid about the content inside, maybe you can read my Yosuga no Sora review first before you dive yourself in this stuff.

To begin with, lets make things clear! You will find s3x scenes throughout the series. And this part usually makes people want to merely watch this anime as a h3ntai show. If you are going after on s3x scenes alone, you will be disappointed because those scenes are very short and not as exciting as you watch “real” one that focuses only those aspects. Instead, those scenes are created for the story development.

Trust me, this isn’t a h3ntai. Despite the main protagonist does have s3x with several girls throughout the series, but these scenes have meaning more than that. The most important thing is how they got to it, the background or story behind each heroines, more than just the act of having s3x.

So, this Yosuga no Sora review will include:

This anime based on visual novel, so it is reasonable that every heroines gets a story. Still, the stories are separated from each other and only in the last arc, some of the parts from other ones get together. So, what is this…

Synopsis:

Tragically orphaned by a car accident, the Kasugano twins travel to their grandparents’ countryside residence via railcar, intending to restore the shards of a destroyed life. Two depressed souls so physically and spiritually, they don’t realize the difficulties these conflicting expectations will unveil in the days to come. Unknown of the future, Kasugano Haruka clings to memories of the past, searching for the strength he needs to protect his ailing little sister.

Plot

Yosuga no Sora was originally a Windows PC visual novel game, which means the story can’t possibly lack content. The story is quite unique, instead of having a lot of girls liking the main protagonist at the same time, the story focuses only one heroine for couple of episodes then goes back to the save point and starts a new path of story with the next girl.

Artwork

The artwork is done beautifully. Just like romance or slice-of-life genre, the background also vivid and detail. And also, the art of this show is capable of entirely expressing the character’s feelings. I loved how they made the main male character without having his character be a full soft-hearted guy just like they do in standard harem anime.

Characters

At the first glance, the characters look cliched and boring. The show has tsundere girl, awkward, childish, mature, and standard characters on harem anime. But right at the end, each of them has depth personality. Their portrayal is wonderful. Each of them carries a really unique and interesting personality which also makes them have really strong character.

Sound

The sound is excellent too, both music and seiyuu. The backsound was done perfectly, and it doesn’t feel weird. And about the opening them and ending theme, it’s standard for my taste. I’m not really into it.

  • Opening Theme: “Hiyoku no Hane” (比翼の羽根) by eufonius
  • Ending Theme #1: “Tsunagukizuna” by Team. Nekocan [Neko] feat. Junca Amaoto
    Ending Theme #2: “Pinky Jones” by Momoiro Clover

Overall (90/100)

Well, Yosuga no Sora can be a challenging one to discuss. A good example of how this anime could get a bad name due to the taboo material which it from time to time appears. It can be a slippery slope, but the show is able to keep it natural and realistic. It is very entertaining and interesting, just complicated, difficult, and sometimes hurtful.
