Not really.

SnW has a small but vocal fanbase on /a/. Outside of the occasional threads, however, the fanbase is practically invisible. Thanks to this - and the general quality of the series - SnW hasn't really picked up a hatebase.

Yes, actually. There's a tradition of watching it together on a stream over new years. People love it here. Maybe not elsewhere, but here it' quietly quite loved.
>universally loved
universally is a strong term. I'm sure there are people were weren't that impressed by it. As you say, it hasn't picked up a hatebase. But you'd have to actively ignore the show altogether to deny /a'/s dedication to it.
>>
>>134899311
This thread has been open for over two hours with only 27 replies. Most of /a/ just doesn't care, which is frankly the case with most shows.
>>
>>134899489
Show is too old. The story has ended the world is closed. Not much left to be said.
>>
>>134899489
If the thread had blown up, it would have been due to shitposting and waifufagging and baitposts about how it was overrated. Maybe anons respect this show enough to NOT make a big deal about it whenever there's a thread.
>>
>>134899489
It's a great show, it's just old.
>>
>>134899574
exactly this
same with Mushishi threads
when the second season was airing, each one, huge thread where anons posted that they lied it. That was it, nothing to discuss the rest of the time because no one was throwing a shitstorm. When the last ep aired, it was a pretty emotional affairs with music and art. Are you a newfag? Everyone knows after spending several years on /a/ that only airing seasonal shows and big name fanbases with a lot of hate are discussed regularly. Good shows like SnW are loved by /a/ and therefore not shat upon.

The show excels at producing atmosphere. I was absolutely intrigued by the sleepy but gorgeous city of Seize where the series is set. From its old cobblestone streets, to its stark cliffs and mountains, to every single one of its buildings, rendered in meticulous architectural detail – I could immediately tell that the artists did their research. I found myself falling in love with the city more than its inhabitants. The show endears me not through its stellar plot or its memorable characters (though they certainly have their moments), but through its setting. Many times, I found myself wondering: Why is everything written in French? Why does war still exist, if there is no one left to fight? How did the world become like this? Little off-hand comments, distributed sporadically throughout the series, give observant viewers subtle clues to the lore and history of Sora no Woto‘s world. They also serve to create a sense of unease: a world where the oceans are dead, Japanese is extinct as a written language, cities are named after numbers, and music is used exclusively as a military tool is decisively different from the one in which we live. And indeed, the show is most interesting when it reveals the dark secrets buried within its characters, allowing us to see a different side to them, solidifying the thought in our heads that in this world, nothing is as it seems.

All this makes Sorami Kanata, the protagonist of the show, that much more irritating to watch. Her innocence and naïveté directly clash with the darker and deeper themes of the show. Even the show’s characters seem know to know this: in one episode, they purposefully send her off to make sure she doesn’t interfere with an illegal bootlegging deal. Her happy-go-lucky nature makes her unfit for her chosen profession, and makes her character unbelievable. When the enemy is at the gates, soldiers do not plead for peace. They fight.

Her presence in the series shifts the focus away from war, and more on her exploration and discovery of Seize and its surroundings. This is the tragic pitfall of Sora no Woto‘s grand experiment: while the show attempts to combine the moe aesthetic with decisively anti-moe themes such as war and death, it is far too easy for the writers of Sora no Woto to regress into moe pandering without consideration for the circumstances surrounding the characters. We see Kanata stare at pretty objects with girlish wonder, or stare at a phone for twenty minutes, and can’t help but wonder, “What is this doing here? How does this contribute at all to either plot or character development?” Sadly, it does not. And since the first half of Sora no Woto focuses mostly on Kanata adjusting to her surroundings, the plot moves at a glacial pace. Herein lies Sora no Woto‘s biggest flaw, or perhaps its greatest success: it captivates us with its promise for plot. Viewers wait, episode after episode, week after week, for some semblance of movement. Although the plot does move every episode, it does so in millimeters – just barely enough to keep us intrigued and engaged. It is not until far into the series when things actually begin to happen, and when it does, it is both interesting and enjoyable, albeit rushed and sorely in need of expansion. Had the series focused less on exposition, dropped its subtle hints a bit faster, and done away with several pointless episodes in favor of more real content, it could have been one for the ages. In its current form, Sora no Woto is a beautiful, enchanting portrait of a marvelous world; all it needs is a little bit more life breathed into it to make it brilliant.

7/10 at best.

Actually you can just slap Oshima's soundtrack on any European town setting and you'll get what you want (i.e. LWA).

Excluding episode 13 right? It added more depth to the setting and the characters, especially of Rio and Kanata.

The setting was amazing, the characterization was well done, and the plot was interesting, but the ending really killed the show for me. It had so much potential but they ended so poorly. Was still a good show overall though.

I thought the show was pretty good for the most part. All of the SoL stuff was spot on, but the main story arc shit was a little weak. IIRC, episode 12 was the weakest out of the whole. It just fell flat and it was a bit cliche. Without the main story stuff, it would have been a 8/10 comfy show; alltogether, it's a cozy 7/10.
