The upcoming original anime series Sora no Method has had some good promotional videos over the last few months to give people a feel for what’s coming and we expect a bit more as we get closer to the series premiere. And that premiere is what’s been set via the official site as Sora no Method is now secheduled to debut on October 5th, 2014 on the main networks such as Tokyo MX and more, with a few showing it a couple of days later and streaming on Nico Nico Douga and Bandai Channel. As previously detailed, Natsukawa Shiina will be taking on the role of Nonoka Komiya while the other lead role, Noel, is set to be announced later. Haruka Yoshimura will be taking on the role of Shiiba Koharu.
The series is set to be directed by Masayuki Sakoi, who worked on the Needless series as director as well as Princess Resurrection and several other shows over the years, going back to Strawberry Panic. The show has an original concept and script by Naoki Hisaya, who worked on the two Kanon releases as well as the original creator for Sola, which gives a few clues as to what kind of show this will be like. Character designs will be handled by QP:flapper while the adaptation of them is done by Yukie Akitani, who is also serving as the chief animation director.
Plot concept: The story begins one winter day when the wish of a few girls was realized with a miracle, changing the landscape of a town. “In the skies above this town, a disc is always there.”
