  • Best anime i've watched!
    In my opinion, this anime is a masterpiece, and here's why.


    Now, at first glance, this may seem like your normal, average slice of life anime, with teenage girls talking about boys or something. But it is so much more than that.

    When you watch this anime, you're going to feel a ton of emotions. Mostly sad, but the good kind of sad. Kind of like the "Oh man, i'm so happy for ...

  • Really needed a show like this
    I watched this in quarantine with my friends over Discord and the themes of friendship, forgiveness, care, and perseverance really spoke to my lonely heart. A wonderful, charming show with great joy and great sadness, and laughs connecting each moment.

  • My new favorite anime!
    This anime is extremely inspiring, especially to STEM-interested women! The girls have a real-life goal that feels unobtainable but is really something that volunteers can accomplish. The real world setting is full of wonder but doesn't leave you feeling empty like some fantasy anime can--you can't really say, "oh, I'm inspired, but I can't live out this dream" because you can!! I really wish ...

  • Damn man, just quality
    Had to staple my eyelids closed at some parts to not cry all over myself. 10/10 honestly. I highly enjoyed the visuals/art style. Some characters may act a bit young for their age but honestly it makes it better to see more energetic characters than usual. I came here hearing high praise and I came looking for quality, and that's exactly what I found. Emotion, Visuals, Story, Character ...

  • Really goes above and beyond
    Watching this when it first aired, I had no way of knowing just how much I would look forward to each week's episode. But this really was a standout of the winter season, from the art and animation to the storytelling.

    From the beginning, the world felt lived-in and was wonderfully detailed - they used every opportunity to inform each characters personality through varied character designs, ...

  • Didn't think I would find this absolute gem
    How do I start this off? Well if you are looking at this review before you watch the show then I would HIGHLY suggest watching this. A place further than the Universe is by far one of my most favorite shows of all time, including non-anime shows. This show has brought me to tears far more often than I thought would happen. It has a very awesome way to convey emotions to the viewer. Although it ...

  • A great slice-of-life and adventure hybrid
    This is a truly excellent anime!

    Design and animation is solid, with a particularly strong focus on background details in the first episodes and overall very good backgrounds for the rest of the series.

    The story is superbly crafted, and with a very very good framing story that seamlessly contains the many vignettes told in each episode. The characters are also written as quite believable ...

  • A "Top Ten Favorite"
    This show is as close to a perfect 12 ep series as any I have ever seen. Notable is the long, stunned pause at the end of the last episode. No one was asking for a season 2. ( I guess succinct isn't good enough, I have to enter 76 more characters. )

  • Turning that someday into today
    I'm sure alot of us have dreams and goals that we tell ourselves that we'll get to someday but not today. Whether it be time constraints or other obligations like work, school, or social life we never get to those goals and that someday never comes. This show is a reminder to us that we could turn that someday into today.
