Default sola?

Hello there. I've been watching this anime named 'sola', and I was wondering if it was based off a visual novel by any chance? I noticed that one of the girls had a fish-shaped hairpin, just like the one Nanami from Lamune had. I'm wondering if they are related? If this anime is indeed based off a v. novel, can somebody please provide me with a link to the novel's website? I've been trying to find it, but no luck. Thank you, I'm just interested in finding out more.

It's not. It just happens to have the main character designer as Naru Nanao (who designed characters from games such as Da Capo, ef's girls, etc.) Scenario writers from... um I forget, someone that worked in Key?

And most importantly, music by Elements Garden, <3, who had a long working relationship with NNS, and many other game companies.

I prefer to think of it as the eroge adaptation, that never got around to making a game.

Sola was written by Naoki Hisaya, who worked over at Tatics on Moon and ONE, went with the core team to Key and was a major contributor to Kanon, then left Key and disappeared off the radar for a while. He recently reappeared under the new company Siesta Soft and wrote MOON CHILDe.

So all in all, sola is the "visual novel anime port" without ever having a visual novel xD. Its got the staff of one at least =P.

There is also a manga being serialized in Dengeki Daioh iirc. I know there are 3 chapters out so far so not too sure if it's still going.

I'm sure a game is coming out soon after the anime, or something like that.

A game is rumored, isn't it? We'll have to wait and see if MediaWorks announces something.

At any rate, I think there's got to be a reason for the involvement of Naoki Hisaya and Naru Nanao, who created the original concepts for sola.

There is no game? Weird I am pretty sure I once seen a trailer of Sola at visual - novels net and I assumed that what they had there was a game trailer. So they never really made it that is a real shame . I mean no mater how you look at it Anime has a construction of classic bishoujo game I really looked forward to seeing paths of other girls.
