** The (otherwise unexplaiable) one episode delay betwen Kouryuu sailing forth and Elize's Diver being operational is another nod to the [=OVA=], depicting a three-girls team onboard.

For a show with a similar concept that began with an OVA and was later turned into an anime, see ''Anime/StrikeWitches''. Both shows share the same character designer, Humikane Shimada, which may further explain their similarities. For another show and toyline that inherited Shimada's design style, there is [[Toys/BusouShinki Busou]] [[Anime/BusouShinki Shinki]] - and yes, there were Sky Girls action figures made with the Busou Shinki [=MMS2=] body-type.

* TenMinuteRetirement: [[spoiler:Otoha]], although it takes much more than just 10 minutes for her to completely recover. To be fair, TheReveal was [[BreakTheCutie a little cruel]].
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: It's kind of easy to understand after such a war.

** For Eika, who is introducted being defeated by a surprise move from another test pilot in a vastly superior machine. In episode 26, she puts that same move in an ''inferior'' plane against ''two'' other ''superior'' planes and teaches their pilots not to bdepend too much of the machine's performance.

* BookEnds: For the Sonic Divers team, whose first mission was meant to be an airshow which a natural disaster turns into a rescue operation, and whose very last sortie is to put a ''kickass'' airshow for [[PassingTheTorch their replacements]], a dedicated ''rescue unit'' of brand new Sonic Divers. Slightly PlayedWith, as the first book end happens several episodes into the series.

** For Karen, whose introduction is she being so timid around males (even for everyday situations), that she's ''unable'' to talk wih two classmates [[TeenGenius she's helping with a report]], needing her roommate to act as intermediary. In episode 26, she's shown confidently talking with those very classmates about their work, much to her roommate's surprise.
** For Togo, whose introduction is him meeting Eika near her plane, snarking at her age with a fishing rod over his shoulder before informing her of his rank (Eika is not amused). In episode 26, he does ''[[StaticCharacter exactly the same]]''. ([[CharacterDevelopment This time, Eika just snarks back]]).

** For Takumi, whose introduction is him taking photos of Karen's brother's buildings. In episode 26, he's again doing the same.


Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: [=OVA=] and series are slightly alternate continuities. Both start, however, with a shot (the [=OVA=]'s, ''considerably'' more [[FanService Fan Service-y]]) of Otoha swiming under a boat - even with the same music playing on the radio.

* BigDamnHeroes: Try telling to the mother, daughter and kitten they rescue from a landslide in the nick of time in their first sortie that they aren't that. Half-lampshaded, half-discused, as TV broadcasts the whole rescue aftermath and they get to be FamedInStory as BigDamnHeroes.

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Karen. In and out of combat; her cockpit display is set to provide her a wealth of information so huge that a normal person would only perceive "noise", and she's able to both memorize the enemy's weapons firing patterns so accurately that can intercept them firing over the shoulder ''without looking'', and [[spoiler: calculate Nanae's [[FunnyMoments breast size]] (that she' hidding behind documents)]] just upon visible measuraments, human averages, angles and proportions.
