Yama no Susume (Encouragement of Climb) is a manga series written and illustrated by Shiro. The manga began in 2011 in Earth Star Entertainment’s Comic Earth Star magazine. An anime adaptation was produced last year from studio 8-Bit (Tokyo Ravens, Infinite Stratos) and directed by Yuusuke Yamamoto (Welcome to the N.H.K., Walkure Romanze). The series ran for one season with each episode being approximately 5 minutes long.
Here is a synopsis from MAL:
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?
The second season of Yama no Susume will be airing from July 9, during the Summer 2014 anime season. You can read our reviews for the first few episodes of the first season here.
