Synopsis

Filled with an overwhelming sense of wonder for the world around her, Mari Tamaki has always dreamt of what lies beyond the reaches of the universe. However, despite harboring such large aspirations on the inside, her fear of the unknown and anxiety over her own possible limitations have always held her back from chasing them. But now, in her second year of high school, Mari is more determined than ever to not let any more of her youth go to waste. Still, her fear continues to prevent her from taking that ambitious step forward—that is, until she has a chance encounter with a girl who has grand dreams of her own.

Spurred by her mother's disappearance, Shirase Kobuchizawa has been working hard to fund her trip to Antarctica. Despite facing doubt and ridicule from virtually everyone, Shirase is determined to embark on this expedition to search for her mother in a place further than the universe itself. Inspired by Shirase's resolve, Mari jumps at the chance to join her. Soon, their efforts attract the attention of the bubbly Hinata Miyake, who is eager to stand out, and Yuzuki Shiraishi, a polite girl from a high class background. Together, the four spirited girls set sail toward the frozen south, all in search of something great.

A Place Further than the Universe Review – Spoiler Free

A Place Further than the Universe is not a simple cute girls doing cute things story, but a complex adventure of liberating yourself from the shackles of normality to do something impactful and memorable. It is a beautiful show that holds your hand while walking you through both the heartwarming and gut-wrenching experience of youth. By the end of every episode, you find yourself with tears streaming down your face but usually accompanied by a smile on your lips. It seamlessly moves between lighthearted comedy and cute interactions to emotionally heavy scenes but spends enough time ...

Mixed Feelings
Jumped into this not knowing what to expect and ended up getting hooked on the journey of these girls aiming to reach Antarctica. It's more than just an adventure; it's about breaking free from your comfort zone and chasing your dreams, which is pretty inspiring. The way each character has their own reasons and fears, but still pushes forward, makes the story relatable and the group dynamic interesting. Plus, the animation when they showcase the landscapes and the harsh beauty of Antarctica is seriously cool, adding a whole new level to the experience.

But while the concept and the character development are top-notch, there were times ...
Jul 11, 2023
Oh, where do I even begin with other than the writing is "Further Than The Universe." This anime had so much potential, yet it managed to squander it with its overuse of unnecessary tears and a plot that meanders aimlessly. Brace yourselves, because this review won't be holding back.

Firstly, let's talk about the characters. Instead of developing meaningful and relatable individuals, the show seems to think that the best way to engage viewers is by having them cry at the drop of a hat. Seriously, it's as if the creators were determined to break a world record for the most tears shed in a single ...
