Set in the future on a land that, after being marred by long-lasting wars, has settled into a quiet cycle of decline. Kanata Kumika is a 15-year-old girl who fulfills her dream of enlisting in the army and joins a unit of five girls who protect a fortress that looms over a little village. The girls also play music that reverberates across the skies over towns without people and seas without fish. This title is reported as using the Spanish city of Cuenca and its nearby Alarcón Fortress as a model for the storyline.

Sound of the Sky (aka So-Ra-No-Wo-To) is set in a future where neighbouring countries are at war and humanity has lost technical advances due to previous conflict. There we follow a little girl called Kanata who joins the army in order to learn to play her bugle. Obviously the platoon she joins is all-girls... You figure where it goes :)!
As apparent by the similar character designs to K-ON the show is mainly slice of life without much threat from the military conflict. Most of the episodes deal with each of the girls past demons but the on-going war comes knocking at their door towards the end. While the conclusion is rather predictable, it's done quite well. I guess what makes the show work so well besides the fact that you can't hate these girls in their oversized uniforms is the setting and the pretty background art. If I found something weird than it's the fact that the key song in the show is a rendition of "Amazing Grace".
