Alderamin on the Sky is a Japanese anime series that aired in 2016. It is an action-packed military fantasy series which follows the story of a talented and aloof strategist named Ikuta Sorouku, voiced by Austin Tindle in the English dub. Ikuta is a lazy, unmotivated young man who desperately wishes to spend his life in leisure, far from the society’s expectations of him.

However, his fate takes a sharp turn when he and his friends get attacked by the enemy while on vacation, and he single-handedly saves their lives with his incredible battle tactics. Amazed by his skill, Ikuta's friend and the daughter of the great General Safida, Princess Chamille, approaches him with an offer to join the army.

Despite his initial reluctance, Ikuta decides to enlist in the army as a strategy commander, hoping to continue his life of luxury without the risk of dying in battle. However, as he navigates through his new role, Ikuta realizes the harsh reality of war and that it’s not all fun and games.

Throughout the series, Ikuta and his team must face several challenging battles and strategic dilemmas, especially against their enemy, the overwhelmingly powerful Katjvarnian Empire. The series also explores themes such as leadership, friendship, betrayal, and the consequences of war.

Caitlin Glass voices Princess Chamille, who finds herself in uncharted waters when she is tasked with becoming a military leader. Throughout the series, she wrestles with the responsibility that comes with the position and her genuine desire to serve her people. Joel McDonald voices the captain of Ikuta's platoon, Torway Remion, who often acts as a voice of reason and a bridge between Ikuta and the rest of the team.

The animation style of Alderamin on the Sky is visually stunning and faithful to the original source material. The attention to detail in character design, backgrounds, and environments captures the essence of the world in which the series is set in. The color palette is muted, which enhances the somber mood of the series and emphasizes the seriousness of the subject matter.

The soundtrack of the series is impressive, featuring a mix of orchestral and rock music. The opening theme song, 'Tenohira no Rakuen,' is an uplifting and inspiring track that sets the tone for the series. The ending theme song, 'nameless,' is a melancholic ballad that brings a sense of closure to each episode.

Overall, Alderamin on the Sky is a compelling military fantasy anime that explores complex themes with well-written characters, engaging battles, and stunning visuals. The series balances its action sequences with moments of introspection, making it a must-watch for fans of the genre.

Alderamin on the Sky is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (23 episodes). The series first aired on July 8, 2016.
