Kanata Sorami, a young Private in the army, arrives in Seize to serve in the Clocktower Fortress and learn the trumpet under the tutelage of Master Sergeant Rio Kazumiya. Though peace hangs uneasily over the world, Kanata finds a relaxing routine of laundry, shopping, and trumpet practice greets her at her new post instead of brutal drilling and discipline. With help from the other members of the all-female 1121st Platoon, Kanata finds her place in the bustling city, bringing joy and humor to the war-weary residents while learning a great deal about the world.

Story This is largely where it sets itself apart from other slice-of-like shows, yes there are your easy going episodes that don't have much of a plot, but most of the episodes do more character or worldbuiling in a single episode than many SoL show do during its entire run, And the worst episode (the phone one by a country mile) does neither of the two.  It does of actual plot at the end of the series... read more
