I’m always fascinated when a sports genre anime comes along and Blue Thermal takes a sweet spot in showing the uniqueness of paragliding.
Blue Thermal is nothing short of a thrilling experience to showcase the adventures of life and the sport. The trailer introduces the Blue Thermal Glider Club members and also gives us amazing glimpses of the views one enjoys while gliding.
Tamaki Tsuru approaches Jun Kuramochi, a member of the glider club, about withdrawing her application to join the club because she wants to have a “regular college life consisting of socializing and romance.”
Tamaki assures Jun that she will pay for the repairs for the glider.
Jun attempts to persuade Tamaki to stay in the trailer, replying that the winnings from a glider tournament will cover the glider’s repairs, and encouraging fellow club member Daisuke Sorachi to be Tamaki’s boyfriend (a request that Sorachi is surprised by but readily accepts).
The club members revealed in the trailer are discussed below.
Tamaki Tsuru is the protagonist of the series and an important member of the Aonagi’s glider club.
Jun Kuramochi is the captain of the glider club and an absolute genius when it comes to gliders.
Daisuke Sorachi is a second-year student who is part of the glider club and is quite clumsy when it comes to expressing his feelings.
Chizuru Yano is a fourth-year student and a member of Aonagi’s glider club. She is someone who has dedicated her four years to flying.
Yukari Muroi is a first-year student who is part of the glider club. She loves to wear a pink jumpsuit.
Ayako Maki is a hard-working first-year student who has a serious passion for gliders.
Eita Narihara is a first-year who joins the glider club. She loves her camera and takes it wherever she goes.
The upcoming anime somehow reminds me of Ace of Diamond with its similar animation. I’m intrigued to know what kind of obstacles come along Tamaki’s way and how she will tackle them.
