Tomoki’s life was normal until a wish-granting angelic android named Ikaros fell from the sky and started calling him master! Of course, thanks to his raging teenage hormones, most of Tomoki’s wishes have something to do with panties. And that makes things pretty complicated, because one simple wish can lead to a rampaging robot made out of frilly undergarments or turn bloomers into bombs capable of blowing up entire neighborhoods! If Tomoki doesn’t learn to control his impulses around Ikaros and be more careful with his wishes, the chaos will only get crazier. Luckily, even with such a dirty mind, Tomoki’s heart is in the right place. His hands, however, are a completely different story.
Heaven’s Lost Property the Movie: The Angeloid of Clockwork follows the anime TV series about a pervert boy surrounded by multiple girls with wings who fell from the sky (Angeloid). It seems that the first half of the movie summarizes the TV series by picking out individual interesting segments, with a little background introduction, so it is somewhat confusing to me who have not watched the TV series. However, this is not really a problem. The second half of the movie focuses on the relationship between the boy and a new girl. Although there is nothing new with the story and the climatic battle, the scenes are gorgeous and/or funny.
Let’s start with the recap-stuff. I hate recaps. If you’re like me and you hate recaps this movie is definitely not for you. For fans of the series this is not only a continuation of the series as it’s a bridge between season 2 and season 3 (which will be released in a few months) but also a recap of previous episodes shown in a different point of view. This divulges into the “Hiyori Kazane” arc, a resident of Sorami City and the film’s main heroine, and she introduces herself and explains how she met and fell in love with Tomoki, while also narrating about how she took part in several events from the two previous anime seasons, all the while observing Tomoki and his friends, and even becoming acquainted with most of them. While staying true to the series it shows Tomoki’s usually pervy high-jinks, but also divulges into more of what the Synapse really is and how the world that many of the characters are in isn’t “reality”.
Starting with a boring recap of the first two seasons after forty minutes the movie starts with the real story. When you look at the beginning with Soraha becoming a giant to battle a giant chicken you actually already see the epitome of this movie’s capabilities. With dull characters and uninteresting humor this movie is really only for the die-hard fans of Sora no Otoshimono out there.
