What Ar Tonelico Could Teach Us About Love and Earth

Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel

I’ve heard of this series called Ar Tonelico from Haruka Shimotsuki‘s music, and I know absolutely nothing about the series until I YouTubed it. I watched about 3 videos and it seems to be about this group of people trying to restor their planet called Ar Ciel. What’s charming about the show is that these people care about their planet so much that they risk their lives to save it. Besides it’s pretty and eargasmic music, it has heavy themes of love and happiness, which is sorely lacking in games and movies. One of the characters, Tyria, loses someone close to her (and he saw her as another creation) and she was thankful to him and still “loved” him. Three of the other characters sing this fantastical song to “restore” the Earth. The song’s English lyrics have so much happiness and love in it! It’s like a rainbow and a pot of gold. Everyone should listen to the song, the world will benefit from it’s lyrics of peace and happiness. If my book gets turned into a movie or series, that song will be in a special scene (maybe a scene where the aliens protest).




And another character, Finnel, had the loveliest (and most cliched) ending. It’s so sweet and lovely! So much fluffy LOVE!!!!
