Average Rating

Filled with an overwhelming sense of wonder for the world around her, Mari Tamaki has always dreamt of what lies beyond the reaches of the universe. However, despite harboring such large aspirations on the inside, her fear of the unknown and anxiety over her own possible limitations have always held her back from chasing them. But now, in her second year of high school, Mari is more determined than ever to not let any more of her youth go to waste. Still, her fear continues to prevent her from taking that ambitious step forward—that is, until she has a chance encounter with a girl who has grand dreams of her own. Spurred by her mother's disappearance, Shirase Kobuchizawa has been working hard to fund her trip to Antarctica. Despite facing doubt and ridicule from virtually everyone, Shirase is determined to embark on this expedition to search for her mother in a place further than the universe itself. Inspired by Shirase's resolve, Mari jumps at the chance to join her. Soon, their efforts attract the attention of the bubbly Hinata Miyake, who is eager to stand out, and Yuzuki Shiraishi, a polite girl from a high class background. Together, they set sail toward the frozen south. Sora yori mo Tooi Basho follows the captivating journey of four spirited girls, all in search of something great.

The real yuri on ice


Is sending a strong message about taking that first step towards your dreams to its audience. Really enjoying it so far.


A girl who deliberates between chasing after her dreams and school life finally finds her motivation to rush out into the unknown.


A blast from start to finish. One of the most consistently excellent slice-of-life shows I’ve seen in recent memory. Please go & watch this.


Best way to kickoff the winter anime season: by literally premiering an adventure/SOL anime set on the coldest place on earth.


Great does not begin to describe how good this is. When a show makes me reconsider what I’m doing with my life I know it’s something special


Awesome SOL who steps away from the regular tropes to deliver an engaging and deep story about frienship and self achievement.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
