8. Sora yori mo Tooi Basho

  • Genres: Slice of Life, Adventure
  • Air Date: January 2 2018

When was it that our first steps started from simple curiosity?

With a scenery that has never been seen,
A sound that has never been heard,
A fragrance that has never been smelled,
A sensation that has never been felt,
A food that has never been tasted,
And a throbbing heartbeat that has never been experienced,

This is a journey to once again gather the fragments of forgotten emotions that were left behind in the past.

When we arrived at that point, I wonder what exactly we thought.

Past stormy seas of the roaring forties, furious fifties, and screaming sixties, there exists a wilderness. At the extreme end of the south there it exists far away from the peak of civilization on Earth.

This is the story of four girls who are on a journey as they move towards Antarctica, a place further than the universe.

It being her first time here, she does not know how to go home. However, one girl who likes camping, Rin, saves Nadeshiko who is terrified of being alone. In order to warm their cold bodies, they draw near to a bonfire.

The sound of the popping and crackling of the fire pierces the silence around the lakeside. Around the fire, Nadeshiko and Rin start to talk while slurping curry noodles. Finally, the moment that the two have been waiting for arrives.

“I see it…. Mount Fuji….”

The outdoor story of Nadeshiko and Rin, beginning with their meeting, starts here.
