In the far future, humans abandon a devastated Earth and traveled to outer space. However, due to unknown phenomenon that prevents them from traveling into space, humanity returns to Earth only to find it inhospitable except for Japan.

To accommodate the entire human population, pocket dimensions are created around Japan to house in the populace. In order to find a way to return to outer space, the humans began reenacting human history according to the Holy book Testament. But in the year 1413 of the Testament Era, the nations of the pocket dimensions invade and conquer Japan, dividing the territory into feudal fiefdoms and forcing the original inhabitants of Japan to leave.

It is now the year 1648 of the Testament Era, the refugees of Japan now live in the city ship Musashi, where it constantly travels around Japan while being watched by the Testament Union, the authority that runs the re-enactment of history. However, rumors of an apocalypse and war begin to spread when the Testament stops revealing what happens next after 1648.

Taking advantage of this situation, Toori Aoi, head of Musashi Ariadust Academy's Supreme Federation and President of the student council, leads his fellow classmates to use this opportunity to regain their homeland.

Honestly, I don't really understand about the beginning of this story, all I know is that it's set in the future of the earth. Which started the apocalypse in various places (holes or circles that make living things die when they enter).
I don't really understand the details and only know the outline. Because I think it's too long to explain, if you want to know try to watch 1-3 episodes.
I'm just going to criticize the content.
In MAL this anime genre is Action, Sci-Fi, Fantasy. But when watching it, I think it's more than that, there are scenes of Comedy, Mecha, Supernatural, School, Romance and Ecchi. ...

Mixed Feelings
Story: Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere tells us about a world where the entire earth has become inhabitable with the exception being Japan - whose inhabitants live on a moving ship, Musashi. In order to house the entirety of earth's population, each region is split into different dimensions in space, thus creating more room for each region to reside in. We focus mainly on those in Japan. Namely, the Musashi Ariadust Academy, where we are introduced to a LOT of characters, all at once, including the president of the student council, Toori Aoi. We start out with Toori's class, whose ...

It is an anime in which many protagonists participate (such as Assassination Classroom or My Hero Academia), but unlike those mentioned, both the plot and the objectives of the characters are quite confusing.

- The protagonist (if he can be considered) is one of the worst I've seen. He adds nothing to the plot except the charismatic role of the group.
- The plot is a bit convoluted. It may be interesting for some, but I did not quite catch the story line.
- Only a few of the many interacting characters are interesting and relevant to the plot.

In short, it is an anime that I do NOT ...
