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.

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.

well yet another anime about cute girl doing things that pretends to have a plot instead of making it a slice of life comedy that it is

story 3
this is basically cute girl doing things everything else either feels badly used or the creators did not care about it the part about the characters being the first females to be this new age fisher is a bit hard to believe and is only used in the most cheapest way possible having the male fishers make a occasional sexist remark telling them to quit but really it just feels like it was used poorly ...
