Encouragement of Climb (Yama no Susume), the series about young women climbing mountains, is set for a new project.
That’s the word from an Encouragement of Climb event held in Saitama this September 15.
Nothing much in the way of details yet, but it appears the girls aren’t done climbing yet.
Based on the manga of the same name by Shiro, the first season of Encouragement of Climb aired in 2013. It was followed by second and third seasons in 2014 and 2018, with a few OVAs in between. It’s directed by Yusuke Yamamoto at studio Eight Bit.
Here’s how the Crunch describes it:
Aoi prefers indoor hobbies and is afraid of heights, but her childhood friend Hinata loves to show off her passion for mountain climbing. As young children they once watched the sunrise from the top of a mountain, and now they’ve decided to take up mountain climbing in hopes of seeing that sunrise again. They have cooking battles with mountaineering gear, climb small hills in their neighborhood, and meet new mountaineering friends as they learn the ropes of the hobby. When will they finally see that sunrise again?
