Sounds of the Sky, better known as Sora no woto follows the life of an all girls tank platoon, 121st Platoon, stationed in the town of Seize.
A member of the poorly equipped, undermanned, and underpaid army of Helvetian Army: the story more directly revolves around private Kanata Sorami, a young musician turned trumpeter (communicator) for the platoon and her dealings with the assorted members of the squad and the town at large, Seize (based of Cuenca, Spain) during a short time of peace for the war torn nation. This all in a far flung future where an apocalypse as pushed japan culturally and technologically to a point resembling western Europe after world war one. The series while directly dealing with just the lives of the small platoon deals more subtly in the greater picture of the self destructive nature of mankind and the horrors of war and disparity, but even more then that about how life can be more then lovely in spite of those looming dangers. All this while remaining at the surface a low key “cute girls doing cute things” anime in a odd setting.
