  • Cute girls doing cool things
    Let's start by saying this is a beautiful anime. The details in the characters and background is amazing.
    The story is also nice. It's not your typical cute girls doing cute things. It's a true coming of age story. learning to be friends. The characters also try to grow as a person.

  • A wholesome show about Friendship
    A wholesome show which talks about true friendship in the most realistic way (as well as the Antarctica and its environment). This show clearly depicted the massive amount of research that has gone into the production of this show. A great masterpiece -- really happy to see MadHouse progressing forward after previous shows.

  • So heartwarming and sweet..
    The animation is absolutely wonderful as well as the voice acting and story! I just started this series today and I can't wait to watch more. From the first 10 seconds you can just tell it's going to be a great anime; I've seen many reviews about this and I am 100% sure it will live up to its reputation!

  • An amazingly well done and exciting adventure - truly outstanding.
    This anime is really outstanding for me; I really felt that sense of adventure and the idea of going on a journey. This adventurous feel is created throughout all the episodes.
    Every single episode significant issues or events take place and we see the cast grow, develop and learn - especially about each other. This is done seamlessly in a way that provides the audience with insight about the ...

  • Bittersweet slice of life
    A sweet little anime that explores the journey of a lonely girl coming to terms with loss and moving on, with the help of new found friends and a grand adventure.

    A typical slice of life, with it's own little twist. If you enjoy stories about teens finding their feet in the world then you'll enjoy this.

    This is the best work I've seen in some time!
    It's hard to get a feeling of what Antarctica is like watching documentaries and the like. This is the closest I've seen to a show accurately portraying human interaction with that particular environment. Having spent four summer seasons in Antarctica myself, I still find it hard to explain to people what life is like down there. It's simply too far from most people's reality, both literally and ...

  • Absolutely Fantastic!
    Before this started, seeing the previews of this season's anime, I passed this over. I thought it'd be boring. It wasn't about anything I thought I'd like, you know? Even so, I watched a short preview video and was very impressed by the quality of animation, so I thought I'd give it a try.

    I'm very happy that I did. Still unsure if I'd enjoy this or not, I completely fell head over heels for it ...
