Japanese Anime has outdone itself once again, this time with an incredibly accurate portrayal of Singapore.
In an episode that aired on Monday (Feb 6), Japanese slice of life anime “A Place Further Than The Universe”, or 宇宙よりも遠い場所 (Sora yori mo tooi basho) followed an adorable story of the main cast visiting Singapore.
But what completely blew us off our feet was the level of detail and accuracy in its portrayal.
Below is a point by point comparison of the anime with our very own local landmarks and tourist attractions, compiled by Singaporean redditor /u/funtimesayshi with contributors skynohoshi, bangmisty and Felix Isaac Palomares.
Props to the Japanese animators who did their due research and produced an exceptional episode featuring places in Singapore that make us feel proud to be Singaporeans.
This episode was produced by the animating studio MadHouse, which also produced many other critically acclaimed anime such as OnePunch Man and Death Note.
Let us just end off with our favourite screencap of the episode:
