Before I started this show, I thought that it might be just okay. Your typical anime. Well, let me tell you. This show has inspired me. I made a decision that I will be going on a trip next year to Canada alone. I'm gonna make that jump, and do something that I'm scared of doing (traveling by myself). I know that it will be scary doing these things by myself, maybe I'll feel a bit overwhelmed at first, but I need to do this for me. I need to take that first step. I really have to thank the writer of this show for inspiring me.


A lot of people underestimated and unwisely skipped over this one although as time has gone on word is getting out that it is something special. You might like Yuru Camp if you liked this show so much, although Yuru Camp is more of a pure Iyashikie and thus has a more chill pacing and atmosphere.

I'm sure you'll receive a warm welcome and have a great time up here in the cold, distant frigid Northern wastes.



Where in Canada are you going?. We DO have cities you know. and it's like 21 degress C out right now.




I'm planning on starting off in Vancouver, and end my trip camping in Lake Garibaldi. I'm planning on going during the summer. I mean, I much prefer colder air than the heat. I live in Las Vegas and we get 110+ (I think it's 43+ Celsius?) temperatures during the summer.

Okay, thanks! I'll give Yuru Camp a chance!

While I like Yurucamp, I don't rate it anywhere as high as Place Further than Universe. Yuru camp is pretty much cute girls doing cute things genre, which I like. But this show goes way beyond that. There is am overall story driving it, but it doesn't feel like a forced plot. It feels pretty true life, yes there are some stretches you have to make, but it feels like it could happen. I have a friend who works in oceanography at our university that I turned on to this show who knows someone who was at Antartica, he liked the show. He said they got a lot of it right. Glad that they managed to put in that the penguins stink, because he said that is something you can't get away from, they really do stink, a lot.
Id say this is also a good anime that you could show to non-anime fans. Doesn't really have any inside fandom reference kind of things, doesn't have much anime tropes. Showcases something that makes good use of anime, while not being fantastical. By what I mean is that it makes use of anime as medium, to do this show as live action, while not impossible, would have taken great resources.
Perhaps because it doesn't have the fandom appeal it hasn't had the big sales numbers as the huge sellers, but I hope studios make more like this. If its any indication of its popularity, with me at least, I've watched it three time through.

Oh, and previous poster, enjoy Canada! I've been going with group of friends past years to BC/Whistler and heading up in a few months! Beautiful place! If camping, just remember bear precautions!

Yea, Whistler area is a great, beautiful area for hiking. I live just south of the border, I should go there more often than I do.

Good luck on your trip! I wish you all the best. As someone that travels a lot I hope you enjoy every bit of your trip to Canada. Traveling, whether it's to Antarctica or the bordering country, really opens your eyes to yourself and the rest of the world.

Yeah. I like the depth in A Place Further than Universe that Yurucamp does not have. This is one of the few anime that I went to order their Blu-ray even though the whole set is around 250 USD (27000 yen). The content in it really worth that price, IMO.


I've also found a website that really dig into this anime: http://filminaty.com/yorimoi/ . It is a really good read if you can understand Japanese.
