So, what place is further than the universe? Antarctica, of course!

Earlier today, Crunchyroll announced that they added A Place Further than the Universe to their digital lineup. The company plans to stream the show as it airs on Japanese TV in January.

To promote the show, the publisher started streaming a subtitled trailer:

Crunchyroll previously announced that they added the title in July, at Anime Expo.

A Place Further than the Universe is an original project from Madhouse. Atsuko Ishizuka (No Game, No Life, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou) will direct the title, with Takahiro Yoshimatsu (Ninja Scroll, Trigun) providing character designs. Jukki Hanada (Love Live! School idol project, Steins;Gate) is in charge of series composition.


Kadokawa describes the title as:

Scenery that we have never seen
Sounds that we have never heard
Scent that we have never smelled
Food that we have never tasted
And the surge of emotion that we have never experienced

This is the expedition of recollecting the pieces torn apart and sensation left alone

When we reach that place, what will we think?

Howling, 40 degrees angle
Raging, 50 degrees angle
Shouting, 60 degrees angle

A wilderness beyond the heavy sea
The furthest south, far from the civilization
At the top of the Earth

We will find lights through the girls’ eyes to live tomorrow

The confirmed voice cast includes:

  • Mari Tamaki: Inori Minase
  • Shirase Kobuchizawa: Kana Hanazawa
  • Hinata Miyake: Yuka Iguchi
  • Yuzuki Shiraishi: Saori Hayami
