Oh, the one by KyoAni? Wanted to watch that after finishing Kobayashi's Maid Dragon but didn't, unfortunately.

I first thought you were saying that Tamako Market is "not a moe anime per se", I was ready to say that it really is 100% moe xD You meant Sora Yori mo Tooi Basho though.

How is the Maid Dragon by the way? The all the screenshots and gifs I saw from it gave me an impression that it is a silly comedy (though maybe not a bad one). That is it, right?

No, no haven't watched it, but looking at the poster, it looks uncannily similar to K-On's designs(haven't watched it too but it's often regarded as the ultimate moe show), so I assume it's moe.

It's sometimes silly and wacky, but the main plotl ine is about this working woman called Kobayashi who, due to circumstances, takes in a dragon called Tohru and Kanna, a child dragon, and how their relationships mature throughout the series, and how Tohru and Kobayashi are able to change as a result of each other. The relationship isn't romance, per se, but it's not friendship either.

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

It does look pretty similar to k-on. At a moment I even thought the k-on characters were going to have a cameo there.

Okay, so it isn't just comedy then. Good =)

I just finished this. Pretty great show. I didn't find it sad though I loved the realism of the troubles and how the journey unfolded and the steps they have to take to actually go to Antarctica. 
And the episodes when they were in singapore were my favorites.From the losing passport drama to how beautiful they made the city look.
Didn't really think it was sad though even at episode 12.

Only episode 12 for me. Mentioned the others because I know a lot of people who watched this anime found it to be sad at many different points in each episode.
But yeah I was really surprised at how the journey to Antarctica made sense and wasn't stupid.

I liked it but I felt the crying was a bit over done.

In all the episodes or just one particular moment?

Just over all felt like there was to much, felt like it was almost once an episode.

I felt like that sometimes but not always, at times it was justified.

I also liked how the end of each episode had a song with a resolution of the conflict of that episode. Made even the more slow episodes end on a high note.
