Plot Summary


Scenery that we have never seen. Sounds that we have never heard. Scent that we have never smelled. Food that we have never tasted. And the surge of emotion that we have never experienced. This is the expedition of recollecting the pieces torn apart and sensation left alone. When we reach that place, what will we think? Howling, 40 degree angle. Raging, 50 degree angle. Shouting, 60 degree angle. A wilderness beyond the heavy sea. The furthest south, far from civilization. At the top of the Earth. We will find lights through the girls' eyes to live tomorrow.

Episode 1

And so it begins with Kimari dreaming and waking up realizing she hasn't done anything in life. So she sets off on a journey that starts in Tokyo, ditching school in the process. She sees somebody dropping an envelope with a ton of money, and knowing that it's a student from her school that she tries to find its owner. As for the girl who dropped it, Shirase wants to go to Antarctica to prove that she can do anything she sets her mind out to do. Seeing that this is such a crazy dream that it's no wonder she's not making any friends, but Kimari is very interested in making the trip with her. So Kimari sets off on a journey starting with Hiroshima to learn about exploration to Antarctica. Pretty interesting start there as those two girls sure are dreaming big and trying to go someplace nobody, especially a Japanese schoolgirl, would dare think about going.

Episode 1

Good episode, it definitely sets up for the main journey to Antarctica and I feel like it's going to be about more than just a journey.

The two main characters, Kobuchizawa and Mari, has some neat character chemistry. I really like how Mari came to get to help out Kobuchizawa when she was being made fun of. Feels like they can become good friends. Regarding Kobuchizawa, I want to learn about her more.

The music and animation are solid so far. I like the smoothness of the OST as it feels alive and adds a bit of energy to the show.

So two girls meet, make plans for Antarctica, and it's all downhill from there. They also see a big boat. I bet that'll be a good conversation-starter...

Anyway, the show seems pretty cool so far, I just hope it keeps up; I wouldn't want to see it go south later on.

Didn't expect this today! A good start to the new year.

I wonder if this show will be more about the Journey than the destination.

Will watch the next one anyway

Episode 1

Things start with Tamaki realizing she hasn't done anything in life, so her friend Takahashi tells her to ditch school. The next day Takahashi calls in for Tamaki and just when she about to board the train to Tokyo she chickens out and goes to school. That afternoon while catching the train she happens to catch someone drop a envelope and tries to return it but she boards the train before she can. She checks the envelope and finds a huge amount of cash and the next day tells Takahashi about it. They try to find the person that it belongs to and the only clue is the smell of the conditioner she uses. While looking Tamaki happens to run into her and follows her to bathroom to return the envelope. The girls name is Kobuchizawa and she has been saving up money to go to Antarctica to find her missing mother. Tamaki is interested in Kobuchizawa dream that she agrees to join her and goes to see boats for the trip.

The first episode starts off to a nice start. We get introduced to Tamaki who after hearing about Takahashi journey to Antarctica plans to go with her. We also Meet another of the four main characters but she hardly had any speaking lines. Next episode the girls will check out boats for their journey and we might meet another of the main characters?

We don't need anyone else. In fact, all you need is Millions Ice, the fearless leader.

Based on name I expected this to be scifi, but I am not complaining thus far.

I love the art, I love the music, and so far the characters seem like a lot of fun (if a little irresponsible). I'm in!

I really liked that first episode a lot. Already looking like a surprise good show to me. The girls are super cute. The expressions are great. The animation and art style I did. The sense of grand adventure even in simple things is great. Looks like this will be solid.

Plus she is hhhnnngggg:



Also I adored the little montage during the credit.

Didn't think there'd be new anime this soon, but it's a good start - good comedic scenes scattered throughout, including the OP and Credits.
Hopefully they find a reasonable way to get there, as 4 girls to Antarctica isn't going to sail well.
I can tell Shirase is best girl already - she's got the long hair and she's steadfast as an Icebreaker
