'''''Allison and Lillia ''''' is a 26-episode, 2008 anime adapted from two related {{Light Novel|s}} series by the same author-illustrator team behind ''LightNovel/KinosJourney''. The series is set on an alternate world of roughly 1930s-era technology, with one big continent split down the middle by a huge river. As a result, two distinct cultures developed in the East and West, neither of which can seem to get along with the other: there have been countless wars in the past, and the west's Allied Kingdoms of Bezel-Iltoa and the east's Roxcheanuk Confederation are technically only in the middle of an armistice, albeit the longest one to date. (It's not as grim as it sounds.) The origination of the war is that both sides believe their ancestors to be the true ancestors to humanity; apparently, neither one has heard of river valley civilizations. By the "World Calendar" shared by both sides, they are in their 3287th year of recorded history.

** Indeed, the anime episode had a [[{{DeusExMachina}} Kaze ex Machina]] ending: [[spoiler: Nikhto falls off a building due to being blown by the draft from Lillia's plane.]]

opening song link dead, replaced
A straight-up Adventure with Action and Mystery elements, it avoids (for the most part) the frequent {{Mind Screw}}ery of the aforementioned ''Kino's Journey''. It is also features continuing plots, rather than the standalone, episodic nature of ''Kino''. This is a blessing and a curse, with the upshot that the producers of the anime were faced with the unenviable task of cramming 10 books into a single 26-episode series. The series retains a certain charm that makes it hard to resist, with an [[AnimeThemeSong opening theme]] that [[ThematicThemeTune sets the tone perfectly]]. (See [[http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=R3vTkJJr1Yc here]].)

Hot Mom is no longer a trope, and no spoilers above the example line (see Spoiler Policy).
The story revolves around TeenGenius / OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Wilhelm "Wil" Schultz and GenkiGirl / AcePilot Allison Whittington, two orphaned childhood friends who unwittingly stumble onto a tale of a treasure that could end the war. Complicating matters throughout are Allison's growing feelings for Wil, which, despite his [[{{PhotographicMemory}} perfect memory]] and [[{{HyperAwareness}} keen observation skills]], he [[{{SelectiveObliviousness}} completely fails to notice]]. (It doesn't help that she just can't seem to confess due to the plot continually interrupting her.) Over the course of their travels, they first encounter Carr Benedict, an [[{{ChivalrousPervert}} overly-amorous]] officer of the Sou Beil Air Force, and Fiona, a young woman in a mountain village who harbors a [[{{KingIncognito}} great secret]]. After three major adventures spanning a single year, the story flashes forward to introduce Lillia, [[spoiler: Allison and Wil's daughter]], and her own adventures with her friend Treize, [[spoiler:Benedict and Fiona's son]]. The adventures the pair stumble into revolve around the consequences of decisions made at the end of the war fifteen years earlier, as well as Treize's inner struggle [[spoiler: between the need to protect his true identity and the desire to reveal his feelings to Lillia]].

This is a blessing and a curse, with the upshot that the producers of the anime were faced with the unenviable task of cramming 10 books into a single 26-episode series. As a result, the anime dispenses with Sigsawa's flowery descriptions of the landscapes and obsessive technical profiling of every new bit of technology that crops up, while [[{{Bowdlerise}} toning down the violence]], [[CompressedAdaptation leaving out important bits of plot and characterization]], and pushing SuspensionOfDisbelief to the breaking point. Nevertheless, the series retains a certain charm that makes it hard to resist, with an [[{{AnimeThemeSong}} opening theme]] that [[{{ThematicThemeTune}} sets the tone perfectly]].
