Bit late, mate.

Also, /a/ streams this thread every new year. Watch for threads around Christmas time and you to can get drunk on apple brandy and watch anime about cute girls doing military things in a dying world.

>expect war and tank action
>instead get women fucking around doing basically nothing

This is the same bullshit Strike Witches pulled. I went in expecting plenty of combat with fanserivce, and instead all I got was girls doing dumb shit (and fanservice).
>>
>>157377961
The only issue I have with this show and many others like it is that they start of with a pretty promising premise, usually little gorl goes to war but then for some reason the are stationed really far away from any action and precede to have an entire season of just normal SoL stuff.

There's nothing wrong with SoL but why bother setting up the whole dying world + war backstory when the story progression is literally;
>1st ep --> SoL stuff --> Last ep

Makes little sense and there is a lot of shows that do this. I understand the creators want to put cute girls in different scenarios but they just execute it so poorly.

Not him, but the problem is THERE WAS NO FUCKING ACTION. I expected the series to instantly break out into a brutal war, thus forcing what should have been an otherwise quiet outpost into fighting with a rickety spider tank made out of scrap parts.

About halfway through they even showed how the world was going to shit, what with squads of Panzer Spider Tanks being laughable compared to the supposedly "ancient" laser beam blasting, wall climbing, ayylmao tanks. All we instead got was a bunch of girls doing stupid shit, producing illegal alcohol, needing to take pee breaks, and participating in a Super Soaker tournament.

Why did you expect something that was clearly a slice of life and marked as a slice of life and marketed as a slice of life to have a lot of action? Are you retarded? Oh, and yes, you are him. Fuck off.

Im guessing you havent watched this other fantastic 10/10 show either then? You disgust me.
>>
>>157386878

All I want is a bunch of cute girls with loads of guns filling each other with lead in a 100% serious manner. Thus far I only have Black Lagoon and Youjo Senki, and the former is a chain smoker and the latter is a psychotic man.
>>
>>157386956
Try that bbgun one then. What was it called again, C cubed? SOmething like that
>>
>>157377961
I agree with you 100%. It's not quite shit though. They basically tried to mix Haibane Renmei and K-on. Which is fine but they went too moe.

I really enjoyed the setting/plot and some of the characters though
>>
>>157387007
Recommending C3-bu is a bad idea.
I don't think he will have the capacity to understand Yura's intricate character journey.
>>
>>157386956

Sabagebu is what you seek. Sort of. Maybe.
>>
>>157388174
It's not a good show. It's basically cuteness/comfiness + PTSD and people think it's masterpiece material. The focus was all over the place with too much meandering, they tried to give each character their Arc but the whole thing ended up feeling hollow.

On the other hand Haibane Renmei knew exactly what it wanted to be, using the warmth of iyashikeis while subverting it with a constant feeling of dread you can't quite shake off to allow the viewer to open up before diving into the meat of the show. ABe wanted his work to feel personal, so the setting is only used as a huge allegory and a background for the true focus of the show, the two mains' emotional dilemmas. The supporting cast is only used as a believable enough cast of characters Reki will separate herself from. It's no wonder Haibane's final episode is so emotionally engrossing despite taking place in a small room, everything was leading up to that kind of climax. Haibane is so well crafted, it's the type of show you enjoy more when you know where it ends up getting at. Deceptive simplicity and wonderful craft, peeling off layers of this anime makes you learn more about both the anime and the author but, most importantly, yourself. This unique functionality is what makes Haibane such a remarkable work. Not just cute girls and "edge".
>>
>>157377961
It would be a 10/10 if it had a better character design.
>>
>>157389850
Haibane Renmei was a lot of good ideas that were thrown away for the sake of "oh look, angst and depression and suicide, how pitiable"
>>
The end was quite underwhelming. But the OAV about exploration was so promising ...
>>
>>157377961
god tier ost and OP but I've forgotten 95% of what happened in the show.
>>
>>157377961
I like the world building in the first few episodes, the last arc almost ruined everything for me.
>>
>>157389950
Expecting a show that deals with existentialism to not have angst is like expecting a boxing anime to not have fights.

And what other ideas? Everything was leading up to "depression" and "suicide", story-wise. Just rewatch the first scene of the show. You can personally dislike the fact that it deals with that kind of topic, but don't say the show just "threw away" good ideas because it chose to go down that path and you personally wanted something else.

Haibane is more of a constant battle between empathy/altruism (deserved or not) and selfishness.

>>157389950
>angst, depression and suicide are inherently bad

If anything, we need more shows that deal with that kind of shit with as much tact and care as HR instead of the usual stuff we get. At least the medium would get some much needed recognition instead of being the current laughing stock of storytelling mediums.
>>
This show was great. Quintessential slice of decay.

>>157390021
>>157389958
Oh come on. It was a nice uplifting ending that wrapped things up while showing how all of the characters you got to know and love would continue to have their peaceful lives and further adventures. We need more unambiguously good endings like that to scrub away the overwhelming cynicism that pervades /a/.
>>
Sora no Woto completely lacks mono no aware. It doesn't even try to have it. That's why it's strange to put it next to things like YKK. I kind of liked SnW but it doesn't compare to things like YKK or Kino no Tabi.
>>
The only things worth keeping from this show are the OST, the setting, the background art, and episode 7. Maybe episode 1.

I wanted to like it and I'm all for SoL about soldiers fucking about but a lot of the time the characters didn't really seem to fit. More like children playing soldier rather than actual trained soldiers.
Then we had shit like the piss episode on top of that.

But that's what they are. They're on some far off outpost of little strategic value, where they're dispatched because it's safe and utterly unimportant in the big picture.

That's basically the whole point. They don't shut up about how they're ill equipped, underfunded, ill disciplined, poorly trained and just about the least important thing to central command.

Why do so many people live in this binary world where everything is either 10/10 or shit. I can't imagine the mental gymnastics someone has to do to call a series that interesting shit. It's obviously no LotGH, but it's a good anime.
