Storyline

Mari Tamaki is in her second year of high school and wants to start something. It's then that she meets Shirase, a girl with few friends who's considered weirdo by the rest of the class and nicknamed "Arctic" since it's all she ever talks about. Unlike her peers, Mari is moved by Shirase's dedication and decides that even though it's unlikely that high school girls will ever go to Antarctica, she's going to try to go with Shirase.

One of the best "moe" shows I've seen
11 March 2019 | by TheArtistWithoutANameSee all my reviews

There are a lot of shows similar to this. Where the basic story is that a group of girls hang out and all kinds of miscellaneous events happen. We have shows like K-on, lucky star, and Kinmoza. But for some reason, I haven't really enjoyed any of them that much (Except for Lucky-star). They didn't really have any underlying themes that I could resonate with.

But that's something "A place further than the universe" does really well. It manages to combine "moe" elements with interesting themes of friendship and goals. You can enjoy watching these cute anime girls while being interested in the underlying themes of the story. And I really liked that aspect of the show. I have seen shows like this that I like more, for example, yuru camp and Kobayashi's dragon maid, this is the first time I have liked a show so much because of that combination.

Of course it had flaws. It got a little boring after the first half and some of the character designs were a little too similar. But I could overlook it because it was so fascinating to watch the show. A show I wasn't too hyped to watch at first.

So yeah. The show was really good. 8/10
