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, they set sail toward the frozen south.

Sora yori mo Tooi Basho follows the captivating journey of four spirited girls, all in search of something great.

A place further than the universe. At first I was hesitant with this anime, as I thought it would not be good.

How wrong I was.

While most CGDCT's are pretty nice, this one was the only one that sent a message. Cute Girls Doing Cute Things (The most memorable example that pops up is K-On, but while that one was tranquil and serene, this one had a lot of emotion.

I entered for a comedy stayed for the emotion tension behind Shirase.
Shirase's backstory is frankly quite depressing.

The Story: The story is these 4 girls wanting to go to Antarctica. Shirase is the first one, in ...

Honestly i didnt think this anime would amount to much, but after a year or so seeing such high rating i decided to give it a try finally.... and oh boy i got exactly what i thought it would be... an average anime with no major "feels" moments, no action basically no anything in particular...

I have no idea how this anime got so high ratings, its not really a comedy since there is nothing funny there like not even basic jokes or basic funny moment attempts, the drama starts decent, you think it will develop more, but nope stays on that level and slowly fades ...

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 ...
