Original TV anime about high school girls on an Antarctic voyage heads to Japanese TV and Crunchyroll in January
A new, web-exclusive teaser trailer is now available online for A Place Further Than the Universe (aka Uchuu Yorimo Tooi Basho in Japan), an original TV anime about a group of high school girls on a voyage to Antarctica. The video, entitled "Seishun Shaku-manen" ("Spreading Youth All Over the Place"), introduces the main characters and samples "The Girls Are Alright!" by saya, the opening theme for the show.
A Place Further Than the Universe is directed by Atsuko Ishizuka and features animation by MADHOUSE. The series will broadcast on Tokyo MX, AT-X, and other stations beginning on January 02, 2018, and it will also be available via streaming on Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll describes A Place Further Than the Universe as follows:
Our first step was always curiosity. For unseen sights, unheard sounds, unsmelled scents, untouched textures, untasted tastes, and unfelt excitement. We travel to find the bits and pieces that we’d forgotten at some point. Howling at 40 degrees, going mad at 50 degrees, screaming at 60 degrees, to the primordial lands beyond the great oceans, at the edge of the earth, far removed from human civilization. This is the story of four girls who travel to the Antarctic, further even than outer space.
