Toaru Hikuushi e no Tsuioku


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

The story revolves around Charles Karino, a Levaamu Empire mercenary aerial pilot who mans the twin seater reconnaissance seaplane Santa Cruz. One day, he receives a preposterous assignment: to fly solo over 12,000 kilometers of enemy waters to protect a girl named Fana del Moral. Fana happens to be the next in line to the empire’s throne and a girl possessing beauty “equal to 5,000 beams of light.”

This is a standalone book. There’s another series under the name “To Aru Hikuushi e no Koiuta” (Love Song for a Certain Pilot) set in the same world, but in a completely different place and with different characters.

Adapted to anime as “The Princess and the Pilot”

I usually don't write reviews on here but I just finished reading this novel in one go and feel like I have to share my thoughts on it. The first few chapters were a little bit confusing and I didn't perfectly grasp what was going on at first. But as the story progressed, I found myself not being able to stop reading. At no point did it get boring and I personally really liked Fana's character development. She started out as that girl who thinks of herself as a puppet... more>> and totally changes through her interactions with Charles. Both characters really grew on me and

I believe I have never cried as much because of a novel, as when the two of them had to part ways at the end.


Seriously though, this novel is definitely worth a read if you like stories about pilots with plenty of action and some romance on the side. Even if you're usually not into that kind of thing, still give it a try because it's just that good. <<less
