A very good series, set in a fascinating world that I'd really like to see more of. It unfortunately suffered from some pacing issues near the middle, and it would have been better if they hadn't pushed the "moe" angle so much and had been more consistent with the atmosphere and tone; however, these flaws weren't too serious, and it was still quite enjoyable overall.

OP here, as a followu-up, I just want to say that I felt the series was quite good. Not perfect, but pretty good. The compassion/humanity aspect was hammed up a bit too much for my liking (seriously, everyone they meet aside from the major at the end is like some shining paragon of human virtue), and there was the Kanata-holding-her-pee episode and all, but I didn't feel that those things detracted too much from it, and it was overall a really nice experience.

11/10 masterpiece

i just, i just really enjoyed this show man. also i have no idea who best girl is
>>
It's the kind of slice-of-life I really want to see become more popular, where you see the slice of an unusual life in an unusual setting. It transcends suspension of disbelief and becomes immersive because the whole setting is so interesting and nice that I actively wanted to believe in it, and I wanted to know all of the little details that made it work.

It's not perfect because the writing isn't perfect. You can really see the weaknesses in the narrative aspect, and the main script guy is a terrible writer as is clearly evidenced from his other works. But man, they made an amazing world.
>>
>>118137955
i could never articulate why i liked this show so much but i think you hit the nail on the head. seeing them do their "normal" life in the setting was suprisingly captivating
>>
I only watched two episodes of it - couldn't stand the main girl and the twintails chick and didn't care for the rest of the cast. The OST and atmosphere was breathtaking though but I'm not sure it's worth it to watch an entire series for that alone.

I actually really like the writing. There's no way I'd call it perfect, but I thought the story was quite good. Most of it rides on the strength of the characters, the world-building, and the philosophy it presents rather than on having a gripping or intriguing plot, though.

I would never call a character bad simply because they were the worst member of the cast. But I guess if you didn't like the characters to begin with it makes sense.

It's a great series with interesting stuff all over the place. All them cultures and history. Okay the townspeople were kind of odd at times, but nothing's perfect.
The first episode left me speechless, I mean they even put in a french song in there which totally did fit in the story and title, that's something impressive imho.
>>
>>118138323
I just think that the strength of the show is all in direction and presentation, and that the script was the weakest point. I think if you took the team and put them on a more capable sophisticated script, the show would've been perfect. As it stands, it's merely amazing.

There's just some things that don't jive. Pacing problems and the wrong balance of tone between whacky gangster antics and trying to expose tragic backstories, simplistic characters that rely too heavily on sticking to archetypes without enough interesting foibles, and a limp narrative that doesn't have the time or development it needs.

Like the ending was fucking amazing. One of my favorite endings ever with Kanata playing Amazing Grace. So cliche, but so perfect for the story. But that entire scenario was set up so clumsily. If the show had subtly built up to that moment better by better establishing the framework of the narrative, it could've been even better.

Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believ'd!

Thro' many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

9/10
Ending didn't jive with the premise.
>>
>>118138805
I see where you're coming from. When I first watched this show I thought to myself, "if it had been written just a little differently it would be the best anime ever."

Even so, I actually like things with imbalanced tone. I think it has to do with my personality; I try to find humor all the time, even when I'm sad, so I'm willing to accept a story that goes from one to the other quite quickly.

You complained about the characters but I think they're one of the show's strongest points. Most of them are sort of generic moe archetypes. But they are generic moe archetypes with opinions about politics, religion, and philosophy, all controversial issues that wars have been fought over in the real world. That's what set them apart from, say, the characters in K-On!

The build up to the ending and the plot in general, I agree on. As it is the show has no plot until the last two episodes, but I think the whole war scenario could have been worked in more seamlessley and expanded on. In particular, I wish something had come of the scene where Kureha asks Kanata if she would've been willing to kill someone. A big part of Filicia's character is that she tries to look after and protect the three youngest girls, and I think Kanata eventually having to actually fight and kill someone could have made an interesting addition to the plot, as well as serving as a sort of "acknowledgement of the other side" in a story that is by and large anti-violence.
>>
>>118139011
The ending was literally custom tailored to fit with the tone and message of the entire series, which is that even if the world seems shitty sometimes, life is still worth living and is even wonderful.

The one thing I like the most about the series is how they never explain anything of what happened during the apocalypse. Most of the background information and setting is presented to you rather than explained in detail. This puts you in the same shoes as the characters, since they do not know exactly what happened either, but accepts the world as is and lives in it.
>>
>>118139187
It's never actually clear whether or not they kill him in the tank battle. He runs up to them and they stomp him to the ground and then an avalanche falls and pushes his tank out of the way.

When I first watched the show I assumed he had survived, but the truth is I have no idea.

But there's also elements in the show the audience understands that the characters themselves do not. In Filicia's flashback episode, she comes upon a dead soldier and his last message written in Japanese. Even though Filicia cannot read it, the audience can, and they can get an idea of what had happened in the past.

Premise of the series was there's plenty of life in the backwaters you're assuming are lifeless.

It's all about subverting expectations. Haven't you read anything else from the country about the city dweller transplanted to the countryside?
SnW is in the same vein as that to a T. The only exception is Rio and unfortunately the show ends with her macro level nonsense.

I'm fine with the fetish and the episode tried to be just a straight comedic deal but it just wasn't funny nor if it was going for it, erotic. And I liked the comedy in the series. It was funny when it needed to especially that .5 episode when they did the mock war.

It's not about that. It's the tragedy of being a woman of royal blood, being destined to be forced into an arranged marriage that you wouldn't want for the good of the people, that makes me sad.

You're one of the first milfags to say so. Most of the others including vets, conscripts, etc. seem to have a lot of stories that are remarkably similar to moments from this show, including the piss ep and general boredom. I'm just a reservist from a country with a somewhat shitty defense budget, but a lot of stuff in the show feels familiar. Especially drunken shenanigans and ruck marches.

The army is gay enough to begin with, so grabbing another mans ass/package in a round of 'Gay-Chicken' won't change much, especially when he grabs back and you lose.

The setting isn't intended to limit it's applicability to that setting.
It's just the quest for your own meaning and happiness. The setting is only a frame to allow that to be told.
>>
>>118157501
SnW isn't really deep. It's meaningful and relevant. Pretty much all the philosophical points the show tries to make are stated outright.

If it made you think deeply about things, that's great.

>>118157587
It's not limited to that, but it definitely applies to such a scenario because that's the world they live in.

Yes. If anything, the opposite. Any idiot can be hard to understand while discussing difficult topics.

To use an analogy: a lake or pond may be deep, or shallow; and it may be clear, or murky. But a clear pool cannot pretend to be deeper than it is.

>Only two snowy episodes

They really dropped the ball on that

Imagine how comfy a snow episode with no grandma subplot to ruin it.
>>
>>118157884
Fair point.

I don't think profoundness and depth are the same thing either, though. I'd say depth would refer to how much detail something goes into with regards to philosophical implications.

I was starting to write a post about how Sora no Woto doesn't really go into much detail when I realized that I was wrong. It has several major themes - enjoying the wonder of life, the common bond of humanity, and the power of music being the main ones I can name off the top of my head. And it manages to offer up what I'd consider the most powerful counterargument to all of these - death, suffering, and violence - yet still make what I felt was a compelling case for optimism and acceptance of people who are different from yourself.

Although if I didn't know about real-world incidents such as >>118157239 I might have thought it was sappy tripe.
>>
SnW helps the 10's look like a decent decade.
>>
>>118158626
I would think depth is about how much you get out of giving extra thought to something. So if something seems to offer up many angles for discussion and analysis, it's deep, whereas something that just doesn't have any aspects worth talking over or thinking through isn't deep. Complexity would be related to this, of course. More stuff going on means more stuff to think about.

Maybe this isn't quite what most people use it to mean, though.
>>
I've been meaning to check this show out, but what is it about? Aside from >>118137260, of course.
>>
>>118158908
Interesting. Honestly, unless I'm misinterpreting what you're saying, then by that definition of deep Sora no Woto is one of the deepest anime I've ever seen due to the setting alone and how much effort went into constructing it.

But I think the "depth" of a work as you've defined it has at least as much to do with the viewer as with the show itself. A devoted fan could take pretty much any statement in the show as a starting point for discussion.

That's a very good point, I'll have to think about it. It seems similar to the same discussion about what's meant by "good," where we can imagine some people liking even the worst shows, but don't usually want to say that "good" and "bad" are therefore meaningless.

And yes, I'd say SnW is pretty deep, though I'm not sure we know enough about the backstory to make a good discussion of it. S2 when, etc.

One of the things that made SnW grab me like it did was how much I liked the setting. I've always been a fan of backwaters and more rural areas, and seeing the way the girls interact with the locals, how they live their lives in this place that's old-school and in the middle of nowhere just makes me so happy in a lot of ways that I can't describe.

It's always been my dream to live somewhere like that.

Don't forget Restrepo

As a relative newfag to anime and this board, I feel sad I wasn't able to watch this show as it aired and reading speculahs with you guys.

It's about a group of soldiers forgotten by their own country during WWII in a stranded Greek island.
They spend years living there with the locals, constantly worrying about how the war is coming along and meanwhile doing goofy everyday routine and enjoying life.
And, of course, feels. Quality feels

Frog here, I was surprised when i heard it for the first time.
Same thing happened in jormungand.

It really fits what the show is trying to say.

Absolutely wrong.

He's very fleshed out.
Even if we know nothing about him, his actual reasoning are very solid and slightly shortsighted.

He knows that the world is going to shit.
Both his side and his enemies are rallying up forces during the peace talk. He just wants to hit first because it will inevitably end in war.

It's a very cynical approach but very understandable.
They never outright mention directly why he's doing what he's doing but it's very understandable considering his past actions and what is left in the world.

When are we gonna stream this again? January, yes?

Watching this after Patlabor is probably gonna be pretty narly. They share some themes (people in uniform are actual people like in real life, instead of idealized, infallible badass heroes). SnW definitely has the capacity to be more depressing though, even though your own personal views and philosophies will shape the way you feel in the end.

>>118171924
I fucking hope so. I rewatched this series 14 times. I want my 15th time with you guys.

>>118136454
I enjoyed it greatly, I watched it two or three winters ago and it just had the right atmosphere for the time. It's not a series you see everyday, was something a bit different yet felt so familiar. Good show.

He says it pretty clearly when Filicia has him hostage: war accelerates the pace of technological development, which might be used to combat the ecological crisis facing all of humanity.
