Prepare to smile and prepare to cry as you venture to Antarctica
As with most anime I go into them pretty much blind, and this one is no exception. Apart from a few images I saw before it had even finished airing, I knew nothing about this anime, other than they go to Antarctica, hence why I had left it so long. But now, I feel like an idiot for putting off something so beautiful for so long.
Sora yori mo Tooi Basho, or Yorimoi, is one of the most beautiful anime I have ever watched. I didn't expect it to be such an emotional roller coaster, let alone have such depth to the story and the characters. Whether it's the backstories or the development of their current relationships, everything is so well done.
Everything about Yorimoi just fits so well. The artwork, the background music, the characters, and the story, there's nothing that feels out of place or lacklustre.
I think it goes without saying, spoilers ahead.
