Synopsis

Mari Tamaki is in her second year of high school and wants to start something. It's then that she meets Shirase, a girl with few friends who's considered a weirdo by the rest of the class and nicknamed "Antarctica" since it's all she ever talks about. Unlike her peers, Mari is moved by Shirase's dedication and decides that even though it's unlikely that high school girls will ever go to Antarctica, she's going to try to go with Shirase.

It says a whole lot that I didn't even think I'd watch this before it aired, and now it's my favorite of the season so far, and I HEAVILY doubt it's going to lose that title.


This show, man. THIS SHOW.

Now, I wasn't even going to watch this simply because the summary was short and sounded like it wasn't going to be anything special. Before it got a better one, it was just 'Highschool Girls journey to antarctica' and I barely gave it a glance before clicking away. Then I found out it was animated by Madhouse, and that got my attention.

So I watched read more

No questions asked, Sora yori mo Tooi Basho (or A Place Further Than The Universe) is one of a bunch of Madhouse's newest anime, and out of the 3 Winter 2018 anime hosted by the studio, the one that (I fear that) less people will take notice of it (Overlord 2 the sequel for fans, and Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card for nostalgic factors and fans alike), but it's still a promising and eventful watch, and is really extraordinary, so much so that I wish that Madhouse would do more original content like this.

So, right by this moment, our main 4-girl group cast are learning the read more

There is only 4 episodes of this anime out so far but it is already by far the best anime of the season, in my opinion. It's main strength is its strong characters, but it is incredibly good in all other aspects as well.

The story is centred around high school girls, which is nothing new, but it has a pretty unique twist that makes it a lot more interesting.

Visually it is outstanding. The art is beautiful and the animation is smooth and lively which suits the spirited characters.

The main characters are just a small group of high school girls, yet are the best part read more

I've always enjoyed a adventure story where friendship and complete determination to achieve a supposedly impossible play well in hand. This anime so far are portrayed that perfectly and it leads to a promising delivery when the girls finally arrive in Antarctica.

WHAT WE'VE SEEN SO FAR
The four main girls of this show remind me a lot of the four girls in K-ON! In fact, you could say that some are more eccentric while others are the opposites of the K-ON girls. Mari and Hinata are practically an upgraded version of Yui and Ritsu while Shirase and Yuzuki are more or less brooding versions Mio read more
