In the future in Onomichi, Hiroshima fish disappear from the sea around the world and only whales live in the ocean. The Ministry of Fishery decides to set up giant experimental Universe Fish Tanks in space. The Onomichi Universe Fishery Union is established and begins to train space fishermen. Female fishermen are in demand due to the strengthening of an equal employment law for men and women. Six new female space fishermen are selected, and the story centers on supporting their growth.

Let me get this out in no uncertain words - Sora to Umi no Aida is a good series. Not “ironically good”, not “eh, it’s fine, I guess” and not even “good for a CGDCT” - a genuinely engaging, thought-provoking story with decent production values. It just happens to be an unfortunate example of how the perception of a work of fiction can be dramatically affected by some unrelated events in a totally different place that just happen to happen at the same time.

You see, 2018 was a year when the Japanese Air Force allowed women to become fighter pilots for the first time ever. read more

Whenever I watch a show with a score below 6 they tend to fall into two camps, one is for shows that are completely and inrepably bad. The type of shows that are doing so much wrong it's hard to believe they got past the board room. The others are shows that while they have some big flaws, have something to offer and a reason that I end up giving them a decent score for. Sora to Umi no Aida falls into the latter half.

Be warned, as much as I like this show it's not the show to watch if you want a well thought read more

This is in no doubt, one of the most controversial trash of the season, but it really is by no means bad, so either you love or you hate it (just like FranXX)!

So...the premise of Sora to Umi no Aida: Sexism's the name of the game (get it, game adaptation?)...initially. And this archetype has been present for decades (e.g. Man on the Moon etc.), so much so that when it was first presented in the opening episode, it was jaw-dropping to see the gender politics play out, that it warranted drops from people who were speculating what this series was all about. BUT...there's more to read more

Sora to Umi is another anime that tries to capitalize on the genre of cute girls doing cute things, and try to use a different concept to do this, which fails since everything else is generic.

The concept of the anime, space fishing, could work even being strange. But they don't give explanations enough and only force you to accept that all fish have disappeared into the earth and can be fished in space. In general the worldbuilding is very poor, you have what is necessary for the fishing to occur and the rest is just our world, populated with very generic support characters. And this read more
