  • #160. The first, and probably best anime of 2018.
    A Place Further Than The Universe is very beautiful, from the breathtaking visuals, to Shirase’s emotional quest to find peace of mind, and the other girls journey of youth. The anime as a whole is a masterpiece, a true work of art. I would also say that if I made some kind of top 10 anime list, Then A Place Further Than The Universe should be at least the one show you try.

    I don’t think I ...

  • More Than Bargained For
    This show definitely delivers a slice of life and then some more, while also making very good character development and teaching you about emotions and friendship and what's acceptable and what's not.

    Strongly recommend. Thought I would give up after a few episodes; ended up binge watching the whole show in one sitting.

  • Very Sweet, and Just the Right Length
    I don't really have a point-by-point breakdown of this story. And as I've said in my other reviews, I'm generally very critical of anime, so believe me when I say in the TL;DR version of my words that I really enjoyed it. You can really feel a lot of heart went behind it, and sometimes, with a little bit of knowledge thrown in, that's really all you need.

    Another reviewer commented on how the ...

  • One of the Best This Season, and in This Genre.
    This is an absolutely beautiful show. It has quality animation, a great soundtrack, inspired levels both of character growth and interpersonal dynamics, and a plot that will leave you roflmao'ing in some parts and crying unabashedly in others. Unless you have an aversion to shows that don't feature punch-outs every episode, you owe it to yourself to watch this.

    Unmissable, wonderful little story
    What can i say beyond the hughe and rightfully deserved praise this series has?. This is an anime where everything is done right, which is a rare thing. a mix of charismatic, relatable primary and secondary characters, right and clever ways of exposition for the story's setup, and many people, included myself, have been touched by this wonderful story in a very personal way.
    A good story does not ...

    A Pathos-Slathered Trip to Antarctica
    Before I watched A Place Further than the Universe, I assumed it was another wholesome and substanceless slice-of-life CGDCT anime, like Yuru Camp, in the same season. After it aired, it gained massive popularity on online communities like Reddit’s /r/anime and the MyAnimeList ratings/forums. During that time, I endured a barrage of posts of praise of this show. And so, delving into it, what did I ...

  • best anime by far in 2018
    This anime deserves much more hype and attention from the community than it is right now. I personally have always been watching anime through other websites that are free, and it is because of this anime, I feel compelled to sign up for Crunchyroll just so I can support this anime.

    This is nothing but inspiring, to remind you what life, friendship and grieve are all about. This is so much more ...

  • One Of This Year's best
    It was really a nice watch for a multitude of reasons. It's character-driven plot is done so well, that to me, an episode that would clearly be a filler in almost ANY other anime wasn't in this one. The animation is also very crisp and nice, as well as the attention to detail and continuity. The OP is also well done. All and all a serious contender for 2018's best anime, for me.

  • cute, but oh the feels in this show
    I think this show had one of the better OP/ED's of the season, but even more noteworthy was the well done writing and feel of this show. You could really connect with the characters and the ups and downs all the girls had gone through. There was always a moment in the show where i felt that big emotional tug and was throughly rewarded for all that happened and to the see the girls triumph at the ...

    A Place Further Than the Universe: Moe, Adventure and Friends.
    When you have a good search for your next big series "excavation", never had it ever occurred to me that there would be an anime about Antarctic exploration. I have to say I am thankful i fell upon A Place Further Than The Universe. This series is something else. If I had to describe the series, I would say looks can be misleading. I was really expecting something different due to the all-girls ...
