    An adventure in the making
    The animation and drawing quality are above average. In particular, the attention to detail in scenery is impressive. The storytelling is also very good.

    The characters are very likeable. At the beginning, you have one girl who is searching for the determination to follow through on a childhood dream of adventure, and you have another who is intensely driven on a specific personal mission of ...

    Leaving Your Comfort Zone Behind...for a Colder Climate.
    Only one episode in, and already this show has promise.

    A Place Further than the Universe is a Slice of Life anime (a personal favorite genre of mine) about going so far out of your comfort zone, you're going to need a sweater. It's hard to explain with just this episode, but I think it sets the stage for something much bigger than any of us can conceive.

    Heartwarming and effective introduction to a promising story
    This series is of course attractive to many primarily since it's the first new anime on Crunchyroll of 2018. However, it's also... good. Really good.

    The dialogue, animation, and overall quality is really nice, the character designs are adorable and nice without feeling overly moe, and the plotting, at least in the first episode, is very strong. It's well-paced, feels original, and doesn't get ...

    A place that reminds us of why we watch anime
    This is only an abbreviated review, so I'll keep it short.

    A place further than the Universe is one of the best shows that came out in winter 2017-2018. It's funny, it looks gorgeous, the character development is wonderful, and it can be really, really sad. It's just four teenagers off an Antarctic science expedition, right? The story is simple, but its exploration of friendship is not. There ...

    More than I expected
    Before this season started, I was compiling my list of shows I wanted to watch. This wasn't on it at first. It wasn't until I saw it was going to be on here that I decided "eh sure, why not." I didn't expect much from it. I figured it'd be a cute girls series which is very rampant this season. First episode was good but not spectacular for me. When I saw the second episode, all opinions I had on ...

    Put it on your "must watch" list
    I've never written a review for an anime before but this one deserves it for sure.
    It is beyond just good, everything works and fits perfectly the theme of exploration and discovery through this cute and funny slice of life.

    Madhouse has already confirmed its skils throughout the years and once again they dont disappoint the animation and soundtrack in this show is top notch very enjoyable on ...

    This show will warm your hearts
    The title of this show tricked me. I thought this was going to be a sci-fi adventure with action, magic, romance etc. Then I find out it's about four innocent Japanese girls and their journey to Antarctica and I've been hooked ever since. Very in-depth character development. All the girls have very unique personalities. I'm really enjoying this particular "slice of life" anime. Like I said the ...

    Great Start Off To 2018
    First episode and I am already hooked and can't wait for the next episode. One of the best shows in a while and a great start to 2018! Story about a girl who is always putting off her life because she is too scared to live it, that is till she meets another girl who is going forward with it.

    Yes, don't plan life, LIVE IT!
