Have any of you ever thought flying panties would be funny? Probably not. Most would find it obnoxious. But what if such an occurrence was due to subconscious thinking? Then I think it would be ok. Besides, your eyes must be playing tricks on you. Panties flying beside a Blackbird doesn’t happen!
More to the point though. The protagonist, Tomoki, just wants a normal peaceful and quiet life. He doesn’t want any trouble despite being one of the most perverted anime characters I’ve seen. He’s right up there with Fukuyama from Girls Bravo. However, I’m sure I’d take liberties if I had a card that granted anything I wanted. Does that make me seem like a pig? Well it’s all in “good” fun.
In this second episode of Sora no Otoshimono ( Heaven’s Lost Property), we find ourselves looking at a typical harem where the childhood friend is the tsundere type who beats the hell out of the guy she likes to make herself feel better for seeing her panties. This show may not seem to have a plot, or even a good story, but if you relax and pay attention to the smaller details, you’ll find the characters wondering just what kind of powers Ikaros has with the transportation cards and the significance of the black spot known as “New World”.
Most of you must be wondering where the comedic element is in this episode. For me, it’s the fact that when Sohara tries to put on new panties-of any kind-they shoot off her legs and into the sky. It’s an extreme situation that’s funny when in fact it shouldn’t. This show is full of chibi and it just adds to the ridiculousness. Hell, Tomoki spends most of his time in that form. This is most likely to show when he is either determined in being manly or perverted.
Let’s not forget the innocent comedy of Ikaros since she isn’t from Earth and will do anything for Tomoki since he is her master. Or Mikako’s refreshing and devilish sense put behind what few words she has. Or even Eishiro’s matter-of-factly manner of explaining his theories. So despite the comedy being highly catered to boys and men, there’s a slowly growing story of interest.
