8. A Place Further Than the Universe
Over the past 10 years, Madhouse, a popular animation studio, has garnered a great deal of attention with its mindblowing adaptations of manga. Some of the best ones include Hunter x Hunter, ACCA and One Punch Man. However, what truly delights the audience is their own original TV shows, of which A Place Further than the Universe is a compelling watch.
The show revolves around the lives of Mari and Shirase, two young high school girls living the suburban life in Tokyo. Mari is hit by the realisation that she is putting to waste the best years of her life, when suddenly she finds an envelope containing $10,000. This money actually belongs to Shirase, who confesses to Mari that she has been planning to go on an expedition to Antarctica.
Three years ago, Shirase’s mother had disappeared while leading the previous expedition to Antarctica. Shirase is determined to go and find her mother, and Mari is eager to help her. Together they begin a journey that is a gripping and genuinely touching tale of making an emotionally and physically challenging journey into the wilderness of Antarctica.
The TV show has been brilliantly shot to say the least, the storyline and scenes are so original and genuine, you get to witness how hard it is to reach and live in the coldest continent of the globe. It promises a rollercoaster of emotions, ranging from subtle comedy to a drastic shift towards adventure, light-hearted drama and tragedy.
