  • The High Ratings Don't Lie
    I checked out this show because of the anime awards and the incredibly positive ratings, and didn't regret it for a moment. While mostly light-hearted, the show is not cutesy and we see from the first episode that this is about young women on a mission -- to get to a certain place, to change their lives, etc. The girls are cute, and the animation and setting are beautiful, but this show is ...

  • Absolutely beautiful
    character development, storyline, art, voices, everything in this anime is so well done, well paced, and beautiful. I laughed, I balled my eyes out, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm not one to usually write reviews, but this show deserves it. If you're looking for something to satisfy you, this is it. I'm sad it's over, but this anime is definitely going to find its way in my collection on my ...

  • Worthy of All of The Hype
    What starts out as a wholesome, cute, and hilarious little show progresses toward emotional depth that really tugs at your heartstrings. Each of the girls are enjoyably unique and bring different vibes to the overall story; the overall growth we see throughout the story's progression of each girl is inspiring to see too! The art, story, characters; EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT! Can't recommend this ...

  • 10/10 will watch again
    This anime made me cry like a lil beech. When it wasn't making me cry it was making me laugh. The art work and animation where CRISP this anime did something special and that was that it surpass its anime form and became borderline art. In short the anime was great.

  • Amazing, beautiful story!
    The animation is amazing, I love the color palette.
    This is a character-driven drama, masterfully written. It's so touching it will wring tears from your eyes.

    This might not turn out to be a great review, but all I should need to say is in the first three sentences.

    Watch it!

  • A very well made anime
    A very well made anime. Mostly a story about friendship. 4 students who become friends and set out to go to Antarctica together. Every episode is so well made. The optimism in this anime made something 'scary' or even impossible like going to Antarctica as high school students looks fun and plausible. I love the songs and VA too. This is definitely in my top 25 of all time (I know top 25 doesn't ...

  • Better than I could have imagined.
    When I first saw Sora Yori I can honestly say I thought it was going to be "moe girls with penguins" and nothing more. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a well written and visually beautiful story, I can honestly say this is one of those animes that sticks with you. If you are looking for a good story around a journey that runs with good character development, this is your show.

  • A Place Further Than the Universe is a masterpiece
    I'm not a fan of anime so much as I am a fan of quality animation. Right now, Japan is producing some of the highest quality animation on the planet, and this particular anime is a prime example of that. I could go on a bout all the attributes of A Place Further Than the Universe that makes it a masterpiece in my book - a great story, superb animation, originality (we don't see. enough of that ...

  • So Much More Than I Expected
    So I'm a recent convert to anime, I'm essentially a grown man and had no intention of getting into the genre until this subscription was gifted to me. I'd seen anime on Toonami when I was a kid and had a set expectation of what anime was and how it was supposed to make you feel. Over the top comedy, gratuitous violence, or essentially soft-core porn.

    I was so wrong.

    Thank god for the random ...

  • A place to further our own lives, and more!
    To be frank, i never thought i would do this, write a review I mean. This anime made me feel so much, that i think it deserves one, in depth if i must, to clarify my feelings towards it.

    The animattion is wonderful, detailed on every aspect, character, scenary and all.
    The story is a tale of what all of us want to do, not in a literal sense. What we all want to do is move foward with our ...
