Air TV series set contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Tatsuya Ishihara, plus the 2-part Air in Summer OVA special.
Yukito is a travelling performer. He moves through this world with only the clothes on his back - driven onward by stories of "The Girl in the Sky." Not knowing when or if he will find her, Yukito wanders, clinging to fleeting hope. Destitute and near starvation, Yukito's life changes after the eccentric beauty Misuzo offers him food and shelter.
This fragile treasure shares with him her dreams of a life lived amongst the clouds, and he listens closely out of a gratitude which soon gives way to rapt curiosity. The unlikely pair grows close, but Yukito cannot forget his destiny - or his past. In the end, the compelling need to find "her" remains. Who is the girl in the sky? Does she even exist? The questions run rampant, but the answers float aimlessly through the air.
