Sora explained

The OP of the anime Sora no Woto is really really pretty. It's also kind of disturbing: the show is about these girl soldiers, fairly active and all, but the OP has them mostly with closed eyes and often in somewhat sexualized poses. Very passive and objectified.

I just found something about that: apparently the art is heavily inspired by Gustav Klimt's paintings, especially the Beethoven Frieze. Which sounds vaguely thematic. The style is similar and you can match up most of the poses; the Sora girls are at least wearing clothes.

This doesn't explain why this choice was made, nor necessarily excuse it... but it is interesting context.
