Sora no Aosa wo Shiru Hito yo revolves around these four individuals as they confront their inner feelings toward each other and make decisions that will affect their lives from here on out.
High school student Aoi Aioi lives with her elder sister, Akane, after a tragic accident took their parents away 13 years ago. Because Akane has since been taking care of her single-handedly, Aoi wants to move to Tokyo after her graduation to relieve her sister’s burden and pursue a musical career, inspired by Akane’s ex-boyfriend Shinnosuke “Shinno” Kanamuro.
Shinno was part of a band until he left for Tokyo to become a professional guitarist after the sisters’ parents passed away, and he was never to be seen again.One afternoon, while Aoi practices her bass in a guest house, she gets startled by the 18-year-old version of Shinno from 13 years ago! As if by coincidence, the current 31-year-old Shinno also returns to the town, but he has changed drastically. There are now two Shinno’s in existence, but why is the Shinno from the past present?
Aoi soon started to develop feelings for the teen shinno. The rest of the story explores the different relationship dynamics between these three people and how they overcome their own regrets. The teen shinno(spirit) act as a catalysts who help each of them with their issues.
Though the whole living ghost was a bit confusing, the film “Her Blue Sky” had a touching story. The art was okay, but the background looked artificial and not in the same wave as the rest of the animation. The voice acting was good too. As for the story, the relationship between the two sisters was sweet and that helped with the ending. However, the rest of the story was so so. The romance thing was just okay, but did not develop well. The rest of the characters were just there to support the action.
