  • beautiful anime <3 <3
    reading the synopsis, I didn't expect much from this - but I am so glad I gave it a chance! the four girls are all relatable characters, each with unique perspectives and problems, and it was so satisfying to watch them grow and forge a strong, healthy friendship. would definitely recommend!

  • Simply Amazing, a different type of story :)
    First, the animation is great, they paid a lot of attention to detail and made the scenery pop. The story itself was done extremely well, it all has to do with their journey and how they got to where they were going. Characters are great and are very likable and relatable which is always a strong point for me. 10/10 would watch again and buy

    P.S - I watched it all in one day

  • 10/10 would go to Antarctica again
    This show hit on every mark for me in a SoL type show, and sure it can be seen as a little played up at times but that should be expected in just about any show to keep the plot moving along.
    Animation and art style are pretty spot on throughout (like everything from Winter 2018 it seems) and the quality, as expected from Madhouse, never really dropped.
    This show is wholesome, cute, ...

  • Touching but little depth
    Now, when I say little depth what I really mean is that the show rarely dwells into it's deeper subjects. But that is likely because it's likely not meant to.

    This could easily be seen as a run of the mill show and to a degree, I understand if someone comes to that conclusion. There are a lot of basic premises to the show:
    A missing parental figure, a person who wants more out of their life, ...

  • A Place Now Closer to My Heart
    Typically, I enjoy watching more plot-driven shows rather than a character-centred slice of life. But I think stories like "A Place Further Than the Universe" are just nice to come home to after a long day of school or work. The four girls, as simple as they may appear at the beginning, each get the chance to be fleshed out during the thirteen-episode run. The story is basic and easy to follow ...

  • unexpected joy and tears
    Back when this came out the premise of the show didn't catch my attention.
    And now i must admit im sad it didn't because the feels train in this anime is more like a feels coaster.

    I've sat watching with the biggest grin of joy on my face, laughed at all the funny moments and cried along with the characters.

    The development of the characters is well written.
    The scenery is stunning.

    And ...

  • Unlike any other place you've been - in anime.
    Loved this one, featuring four girls. At times, it felt like the characters were characters put into anime, not "anime characters." The little details to spot that make the world seem so real are fun to catch. It's also just dazzling, the scenery. The dialogue was especially enjoyable and reminded me of being a teen, dramatic yet fun-loving.

  • A true masterpiece, un chef d'oeuvre !
    One of the most moving et great stories i ever seen. I don't know what to say, but this is really on of these shows that make you watch animes, i really had a great moment following these girls to the antarctic and now i feel kind of sad that it's over. I hope there will be a 2nd season !

  • Simply & Utterly Remarkable
    It's difficult to put in words just how wonderful this show is. The masterful combination of its excellent plot and the breathtaking art style is executed to perfection. Cast aside any doubts you may have about this style of anime, you"ll be thoroughly impressed. There is not much more to say. Watch this anime.

  • A worthwhile wholesome show
    A Place Further Than the Universe is a a unique mix of a slice of life show with grounded adventure. Most of the problems the protagonists face are rather real world problems anyone of us could encounter if we were trying our best to get somewhere, let alone Antarctica. The four protagonists are really unique and fun to watch, each with their own faults, desires, baggage, and this dynamic between ...
