(9.3/10) Summary: Air is a fantastic anime centered around a man named Yukito Kunisaki. He travels from town to town as a performer to earn enough money to survive. You see, he's actually searching for the winged girl in the sky. Now, I know what you're thinking, " What? -_-; " … I know it sounds pretty lame, but it really is amazing. Anyways, he carries around a doll with him that he is able to make move without any strings attached. Most people are amazed, and they pay him for the show. Once again, " What? -_-; " … Don't worry, because by the end, everything makes complete sense. However, when he arrived in this one town, nobody was interested in his show. He was starving and alone, but that's when he met Misuzu Kamio. At that moment, his life was changed forever.

Characters: (10/10)

Yukito Kunisaki - Cool; irritable.  Pretty funny to watch.

Misuzu Kamio - Sweet; innocent.  A big klutz.  She's alone and is ill with a strange sickness.

Kano Kirishima - Sweet; high spirited.  Has some strange connection to the supernatural.

Minagi Tohno - Smart; clam.  She's very kind and is even the president of the astronomy club!

Kanna - The last one. (Watch to find out what I mean)  Alone; afraid.

Ryuya - Brave; kind.  Kanna's personal bodyguard.

Uraha - Kind; mischievous.  Also protects Kanna.

Haruko Kamio - Very intricate.  Watch to learn about her. (My favorite character)

Hijiri Kirishima - The older sister to Kano.  Protective; shrewd.

Michiru - Energetic; playful.  She's best friend's with Tohno.

Potato - Kano's pet dog.  As you can see -> very cute.

Sora - ??? Very important.  Must watch to find out about.

I apologize for the minimal amount of information on each character, I just don't want to give anything away before you see it.

Art: (8.5/10)
This show is very well colorized, and almost everything seems well done. However, some characters have some pretty large eyes that might seem annoying to you. Another thing is that the characters' eyes are very low for an anime. Now, this didn't bother me, but it might bother some people.

Overall, this show was definitely worth watching. At first, it seemed a little strange, though. However, as I previously mentioned, by the end, everything in the story made complete sense. The plot was especially very well thought out and very creative. In fact, right now this show has the potential to stand up against CLANNAD, my favorite anime. I definitely recommend watching this. Thanks for reading! ^^
