Time for the gamble of the season. I'm saying 60% chance they never leave Japan but "the real journey was making friends" or something, 35% the last episode ends with them on a boat, and 5% they actually make it to Antarctica.
That aside, the first episode was cute. Not much more to say so far except that I like the artstyle, as expected of Madhouse.

Because the PV didn't exactly fill me with confidence. Of course, even if they don't end up making it there, I'm sure it'll be a fun ride anyway, just disappointing in the end. I want to see cute girls in Antarctica, dammit, it's an unfilled niche!

Seeing the pace at which things are moving forward and the nature of discussion for the past weeks, this could have worked as a 6-episode TV or OVA series where in the end we, the viewers, are the losers who poked fun at these girls for daring to pursue an ambitious dream.

Because when all we had to go on was the title and PV, there was nothing to indicate that it wasn't all a metaphor for coming of age or whatever; the most the PV showed was the girls wistfully looking at maps and a boat.
And the OP did help ease that worry, but there are plenty of OPs that don't reflect what actually happens in their series, so I wasn't totally convinced until about episode 4. Though there IS still time for

So how do you guys reckon the gamble paid off?
The last couple of episodes were a bit too purposeful and obvious in their telegraphing of "be sad! this is terribly sad!", but even so I have to say this was a very well-done original. It had a solid plot and solid set of obstacles both emotional and physical, and it actually confronted them and attempted to overcome them. There wasn't much dillydallying or back-and-forth bullshit and the plot moved along and came to a solid conclusion (though I won't pretend it was 'satisfying' since I ended up sad, and sadness isn't satisfying). There's one more episode left to tie up loose ends, I imagine, but the original plotline is finished, I think. Unless they like, you know, bring her mom back to life or something.
It was really honestly well-directed and made the most out of the little time it had to tell a complete story. It's not my favorite show this season but it probably was my favorite show with a -plot- this season (as opposed to say, Slow Start or Yuru Camp). I hope we get more like this soon, one of the few I really looked forward to every week right on release. I hope the last episode doesn't drop the ball but I honestly can't imagine that happening.

You know, 13 episodes is really not that short an amount of time; it's longer than a feature-length film, by far. I think a lot of TV anime give the impression of being too short simply because they're incomplete adaptations meant to advertise source material, but for an anime original, one cour is plenty for a competent writer and director to work with.

My very important musings:
• Cute girls
• Ends exactly how it should
• Super serious drama things are boring and don't make sense
• First half is really good
• Pacing gets really bad after they reach Antarctica
• Feels like there were like 2+ episodes cut
• Final episode is still fine

Overall rating: Positive meh.
