Title: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Kaze101 on May 31, 2005, 08:38:53 AM
Well i decided to start something about AIR TV. I thought there should be one in the forums. So lets get started!
Anyways my fav char is Misuzu! Man she's Kawaii!! Gao~ Nihahaha and the constant dropping on the floor! AIR is a bit confusing overall

*spoiler*
Why the hell did Yukito turn into a fecking crow?

Yatta!!! I was waiting for this post, but I am too lazy to start one.

Yes, the story was rather confusing at times. I think some of the implied meaning and themes were lost either during the translation or simply due to the cultural gap...

I think they made it too short... they tried to stick everything into a 12 episode story which could've been at least 20. Another thing that baffles me... something that really baffles me....

*spoiler*

On epi 12 where those 2 small kids are holding hands on the beach... wot was dat about?

I completely disagree, it would have been too long winded if it was longer.

What do you mean it "should be"? If anything, if it was an OVA, it would be higher quality. Sometimes series have extra eps that do air on TV, but will this be one ep... or 3? Because if so, it'll probably be released as an OVA direct to DVD... which is a good thing.

when i said "should be" i didnt mean that i hope it goes on tv eps instead of ova i ment it should be going on tele.  if there is more air i dont really care if its released as a ova of a tv series.

wow... that's a big wallpaper there... should have posted a link as opposed to the picture.

Just a note here, is it because not many ppl have seen this series? Cuz there's only like 2 people posting here (myself excluded)

Posting a link would've been a much better idea.  It's stretching the screen... 

Anyways, to Undark's response, I've seen the series but didn't have much to comment on it.  I think the length of the series was fine.  There, a comment.

Me and my friend was discussing air a few days ago and well i was wondering how did misuzu get the curse? i swear kanna was the last flying winged special thingy and she died... so how did misuzu get the curse? And i dont think that kanna had a baby. o_O. I think i might've missed something.

God, I'm so terrible with names...so I hope you guys can bear with me.  Misuzu is a descendent of the girl with the wings that got the curse while she was flying trying to defend her two friends.  @_@

I don't think Yukito was the crow...I think the guy that loved the girl with the wings was reincarnated as a crow...or maybe...x_x gah, I have to rewatch the series.
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Undark on June 14, 2005, 05:32:42 AM
Hmm... I read most of these theories off the animesuki forum.

Yukito is a descendant of that samurai person (Ryuuya I think...), but there are some who thinks that he is a reincarnation. His entire family have devoted their life to free the "girl in the sky." They also know magic and the ability to animate those dolls is one of them. Yukito's mom met one reincarnation of the "girl in the sky" but was unable to fully break the curse. (Thus we can assume that the girl died) So it was up to Yukito to find the next reincarnation of "the girl in the sky" and free her.

There isn't much doubt about Yukito being the crow, since the crow admitted that he is Yukito. When Yukito came back, he gave up his life to help Misuzu break the curse. If he had not done so, Misuzu should have died that night. Hence Misuzu was wondering why she was able to wake up again after Yukito "disappeared".

Misuzu was Kanna's attempt to reincarnate. However as said in the anime "Putting a winged being into a human body is like trying to fill an ocean into a container, the container will crack before it is finished" (or something like that) Yukito's sacrifice allowed Misuzu to live a little while longer and for Kanna to fully reincarnate. Thus completely breaking the curse. There is a whole lot more theory about what the curse exactly does and how it has taken the 1000 years for the curse to weaken to the extend such that it can be broken, but I won't go too much into that. (and some of it is pure garbage IMO...)

I would watch the series again to varify, but I would cry my bloody eyes out again at the ending...
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Kaze101 on June 14, 2005, 10:05:35 AM
lol. Ididnt cry at th ending i just felt REALLY REALLY sad. the only manga/anime i cried at is I''s(manga) and fruits basket(anime) (for some unkown reason)
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Undark on June 14, 2005, 07:40:41 PM
 :'( I cry easy.

btw, what was your favourite scene?

Mine was when Misuzu recovered her memory and they were going to go to the summer festival However when morning came, and she opened the window the shadow of the raindrop rolling down the cheek. That scene was so powerfully emotional...
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Kaze101 on June 15, 2005, 09:16:45 AM
my favourite scene is when misuzu is being carried away by her dad on the beach and then she wakes up from her sleep crying and runs back to her "mum" crying mama. I loved that scene.
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Aoi_Sekai on June 16, 2005, 01:30:32 PM
This 1 of the most dramatic anime's I've seen and the Best.

I admit, I teared on the part where Mizusu was tryin to get to her mother then dies in her arms. I usually would feel sad when it comes to stuff like this in anime or others, but I rarely shed a tear in anime. Usually just feel sad.

Any1 got info aboutthe film? I've been wonderrin wat the film is based on. Is it after the series or wat? And ye the Summer Special is about the past of Kana.
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Kaze101 on June 16, 2005, 01:36:48 PM
Well i dont know much about the movie. But i think its gonna have to same story line and all. I dont know if its before of after the tv series (but i'm pretty sure its before). Sry about my lack of info lol.
I was just wonderings who's everyone fav char/chars?
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Aoi_Sekai on June 16, 2005, 02:14:06 PM
NP about it ^_^

As for fav. character, mine would b the one and only... Mizusu!
She has such an innocence to her,but yet she has to carry such heavy bearings... Ah! that's the reason I sheded tears to this. I felt like closest being in touch with a character is Mizusu(Although she is the main character).

Then it would b Yukito and Kana. Kana has the same vibe as Mizusu, and Yukito isn't ike most of the male anime characters who are usually winey, and annoying that u have to shout at them even though u know they can't hear u.

Post by: Undark on June 16, 2005, 07:29:30 PM
The "movie" although it might just be an OVA, covers the detailed events of the summer arc, if I am not mistaken. So basically an extended version of Kanna and her story... I think many people complained that Kanna section was short and didn't show the full story...
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Kaze101 on June 18, 2005, 06:12:22 AM
kanna's part was too short. I especially liked the part when she was learning to juggle...........

No, that's the OVA/TV ep(s) getting released this summer.

The movie has been out for months and gets released on DVD sometime this summer... its just a stupid rehash... nothing new. New animation, perhaps, though... so nothing wrong with that, I guess. <<

i really cant wait till the movie comes out. I hope its good and i think the animation is different too because i had a wallpaper from a scene from the movie of misuzu and she looked different. The hair was but i dont know about the face coz misuzu was facing sideways. It might seem pretty wierd to me when i watch it but i dont think the animation is going to change that much so that we wont be able to notice the chars.

Well if the movie's art is going to change, it better be a change for the better. The art was really good for the anime.

Post by: Kaze101 on June 21, 2005, 01:53:24 PM
Air was based on a hentai game. Rite? Did the game have a story or was it like one of those virtual sim thingys? Coz i dont think the game wuld have such a deep story.
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Undark on June 22, 2005, 12:34:14 PM
Yes it was based off an H-game. I founded out when I download what I thought was the artbook ><.

Are you gonna ask this about every series on here?  Geez.  H is hentai.  And hopefully you know what that means.  Just look up what Air's about on some site.

Just imagine he didnt know what hentai is... lol! That is like one of the first japanese words i heard and used and didnt even know what it ment.
note: i do know what it means now.

Btw, Undark is the artbook good? Or just full of ecchi stuff?

Err... it was the artbook of the H-game, so there is definitely porn in there. But i just took a few of the clean pages for making avatars and such things. The art feels a bit different from the anime. From what I can recall (it's been a while, and I already deleted it), everything has a bit more pastel color feel to it.
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Kaze101 on June 23, 2005, 11:19:20 AM

i was gonna ask u for it but u deleted it *cries* oh well i'll download it later if i can arsed >.< which i cant right now so....  ::)

Post by: Aoi_Sekai on June 23, 2005, 03:47:47 PM
I knew this would b from an H or E game ;D

Just lookin at the drawings from the anime gave me the idea that it was a H game. From experience of collectin lots of CG pics u tend to find out that sme of those r from H games, thus knowing wat they look like.

Sme1 asked me did i know that one of my pics were from a Hentai game in Jan. So i thought 'That's from a H game?' I was suprised as the graphics and drawings were extremely good. So I started lookin at all my pics and found out that 2/5 of them were from H games... B sure to check any pics u got, as sme of them mayb from H games  ;D Doesn't mean u have to delete them ok, just admire their quality instead of just staring at the graphical pics that u find on the net after findin out which is  from H games. lol

Post by: Kaze101 on June 25, 2005, 06:40:50 AM

It's nothing special that Air is based on a H-game, since they decided not to put any "H" in the anime.   :P
However if ur not awared, many other cool animes like Kiminozo is also based on H-games...  :)
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: ForeverGoNe on June 25, 2005, 10:23:49 PM
AIR was a good series to watch but because of its deep plot, it made it hard to understand for some. The way that the series was approached was well done because first when they showed how it was when Yukito was with Misizu to look over her, while he was searching for the girl in the sky. When they showed the episode of 1000 years back, its reflects upon the original story of the girl in the sky. When Yukito disappears into the doll, he is reincarnated into the crow. The crow symbolizes death, but in the life cycle, there is always reincarnations. Thus, Yukito taking in the form of the crow. After this, they did a recap of events but this time, without Yukito being there for Misuzu, and how things would've been if she had her mother to rely on instead of Yukito, in which the way it was suppose to be. The two children holding hands at the beach that we saw were also shown earlier in the series when Yukito was sitting on the ledge behind the school with Misuzu observign the sunset. The two children holding hands are either thought to be Misuzu and Yukito (he was yet reborn into a human this time) or it was Kanna and Ryuuga, that we dont know because the KEY didn't specify who they were, so this is left upon the decision of the viewer.

I hope this cleared it up a bit for those who didn't understand the perspective of how it was approached.
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: kryu on June 25, 2005, 10:38:40 PM
Although the two children was thought to be the reincarnated Miisuzu and Yukito; when the two children passes by at the last episode, you can clearly see that they're waving at Mizusu and Yukito. And if Mizusu and Yukito is still alive at that time, then how can the reborned version of them appear  ???
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Kaze101 on June 26, 2005, 02:58:01 AM
Probs kanna and ryuuga then. Thanks for clearing up most of m questions ForeverGoNe ^.^'
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Undark on June 27, 2005, 09:52:49 AM
Ya... this anime was deep. Had to go to a bunch of forums and then rewatch it twice before I began to really understand what happened.

The first time I watched it, I watched like 7 episodes at once and was completely lost when the plot switched over to 1000 years ago.
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Aoi_Sekai on June 27, 2005, 11:11:44 AM
I found this anime fairly easy to understand ^_^ This is one of those anime's that do not have a definite answer, but dependin how u look at it.

U kinda get used to these type of anime, once u watched stuff like .Hack//Sign, Lain and Evangelion. I love anime with a deep and complex story line.

The only thing that got me thinkin was the ending for this anime. Where the two kids were holdin hands, was it the souls of Yukito and Misuzu holdin hands or was it  kanna and ryuuga. Here's an explanation on both sides of the ending.

Although Key didn't completely clear things up, I'm sure it is Kanna and Ryuuga. Although Kana wasn't complete as a soul within Misuzu, Mizusu was the reincarnated soul of Kanna, the soul of Ryuuga was reincarnated as Yukito, however Yukito/Ryuuga had never realised his real intention for searchin for the'girl with wings', apart from the fact that his mother told him about it. But when Yukito gave up his life to try and save Misuzu, he relived the past and realises that his mission was to free Kanna of the curse. As ForeverGoNe has mentioned he was brought back as a crow to do a 'recap', i don't think it was a recap of wat would of happen if Misuzu relied on her mother. Because Yukito was there all the way through the recap till he parted with Misuzu. But at that point l8ter Yukito turns into a crow. It was just showing Yukito/Ryuuga(the crow) wat happened after he left(present Yukito). He wanted to save Mizusu, so he gave his life to try, but if he hadn't returned as a crow he would have not learned if he truly has saved her, so in the end he realises that Kanna is still out there, and until he can break the curse completely he will go in search for her until he does.

So I don't think the curse is broken entirely, well not to the present Yukito and Mizusu. At the end of the anime the boy, the reincarnation of Yukito/Ryuuga, mentions that the Present Yukito and Mizusu that he was watching still has hardships to go through. So there is this continuous cycle that will happen until a curse is completely broken. As I mentioned like ForeverGoNe has, Key did not specify if it was Yukito/Ryuuga and Mizusu/Kanna or not. So towards my conclusion, the boy is definitely Yukito/Ryuuga and the girl is Mizusu/Kanna. The boy tells the girl that she wanted to go c wat was byond the shorline, however the girl tells him that she hasn't told him that, and who was it who wanted to go see the shore line?...Actually I don't remember, but i'm guessin it was Misuzu was the 1 lol. So all in all. Yukito and Ruuya r one and the same in the end, Mizusu and Kanna r one and the same in the end aswell.

But then this brings another point on whether the girl is both Kanna and Mizusu as the boy never mentioned if she was Kanna or Mizusu,  but he did say it was a 'new beggining' for them. Which could mean that it is Yukito/Ryuuya and Mizusu in the end. Bcause Kanna could be free at this point so there was no need to inhabit another body. Another thing is it could b Kanna  who is the body now, but Mizusu is the soul inhabitant. When u take a look at the girl in the end u notice she has a bluish purple hair which is  Kanna's hair colour. Thus Yukito and Ryuuyu as one has got their wish in the end. Yukito has Mizusu's soul to live with together and Ryuuya has Kanna's freedom.

So here's the same type of ending theme of bothe side,

Ryuuya has freed Kanna(soul?)
Yukito/Ryuuya remembers his past
There is still a cycle of the curse which has not been broken for the time being in Yukito and Mizusu timeline.


This is all i can sum up at the mo, if any1 has a diff. side to the endin feel free to post, it's good to c diff. sides of the endin as this will help completely narrow the endin down.
Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*

Title: Re: Air TV *Spoilers*
Post by: Aoi_Sekai on June 28, 2005, 02:36:10 AM
Probably ;D, but hey...watever makes u tick as sme say.

There is also a new anime that's gonna b based off another H game, Heard of the game 'Shuffle'? Another H game and is suppose to b quite good. Dunno when the anime is due, but I guess it might b around August.

Wow, H games r movin in to the anime business ^_^ I was always mentionin that they should. Lookin at their creations looked good enough, and sme H games have a good story line. Suprisingly it's not gonna b Hentai ???

Ma ika....

Post by: Kaze101 on June 28, 2005, 08:49:19 AM
I'm also quite surprised that H games arent ecchi hentai animes when they do turn in to anime >.<. I had a dream about the Air summer Special. It was on Animesuki's webpage and when i got home from skool i was looking on animesuki for it.... it seemed so real.... :o

What I meant by recap, is how the events would've unfolded now that him trying to save Misuzu. Notice the difference in how Haruka truly acts, as opposed to before? Misuzu's main goal was to be happy, and with how Haruka treated her with such love, and how they spent the summer together, Misuzu was finally able to fulfill her dreams. The curse was broken after that goal was reached. Misuzu then returned to the sky to become one with the winged being. And also, the main reason why he was reincarnated was so that he could see the unfold of events, that the curse would be broken. Thats what I meant, sorry for the confusion.

Thats one way to interpret the final relation between Yukito/Ryuuyu and Misuzu/Kanna. Because we know that the two children could either be one of the two pairs, it could be safe to assume that they both attained what you said earlier, Misuzu's soul and Kanna's freedom.

Don't worry Tsukasa_Lover! i think quite a few ppl didn't get the ending accurately, but who to say i am?...we won't know until the OVA that comes out soon, well i hope that may clear things up.

I hope people read this before going off to download Air the Movie. Because it is garbage compared to Air TV. The art, story and characters all can't stand up to their anime counterpart. It's kinda sad that they pretty much completely messed it up with the movie.

The quality of the art is surprisingly bad compared to the anime. Considering that this is a movie, that is extremely disappointing. As for the story, it seemed like they tried to add a more romantic relationship between Misuzu and Yukito, but failed horribly. And the characters, I did not feel any attachment to the character whatsoever. I cried the first time I saw the ending to Air TV, I cried the second time, and I would have cried the third time if it weren't because my friends came over halfway through the ending (although my eyes were still watery.) As for the movie ending, I didn't even feel the slightest bit of sadness. Partly because I already know the ending, but also because the movie didn't get me attached to the characters at all. I couldn't care less that Misuzu died, because I have yet to feel the emotional attachment that I felt when I watched the anime.

The final verdict, just watch anime. Don't watch the movie because you think it would be good, because it sucked IMO. The only thing it offered was a few events that never happened in the anime, but it doesn't make up for the overall crappiness of the movie.  Although I still would recommend the anime whole-heartedly ;D.

pfft i downloaded it anyways... i thought it was good. Misuzu didnt seem like Misuzu and niether did Yukito but it was good.... made me cry in the end, which the TV series didn't which was kinda surprising. But the movie was basically the TV series without some characters and worser art with little bits added in.

O.o How could you cry for the movie but not the anime. I hardly took a liking to the characters, nevermind caring enough about them to cry over their death. I feel that the characters personality changed when they made it into a movie.

i dont even know how i cried... the anime seemed much more depressing but i just did in the movie. Btw wasnt the movie mad first? so shouldnt it be "i feel the characters personalities changed when it was made into a anime" or something....
