Yama no Susume 2

Really? This got a second season? It received such poor reviews worldwide? Not only is there a second season, but this season has a lot more episodes and they are longer in duration. Is this really a hit in Japan? Seriously?

Yama no Susume 2To be fair; I always thought the artwork was rather good for an anime short. Then again, I don’t suppose I can call this an anime short anymore, can I? I think the artwork’s best features are its characters. They look alright.

It’s really the story that never cared for. It never interested me and I never found it amusing. In fact, I got bored quite quickly and just stopped after the fifth episode of season one. I knew it was only a couple of minutes, but I didn’t want to waste them.

Yama no Susume is mediocre at best. I honestly cannot see myself watching this unless something really exciting happens. Unfortunately, I cannot see that happening in the near future. That is why I suggest that you look for something else.

Plot Summary: Aoi and Hinata are childhood friends. Aoi prefers staying indoors and is afraid of heights, whereas Hinata is outgoing and loves mountaineering. They both decide to climb a mountain, in order to see a sunrise they saw together when they were younger.

Hinata and Aoi made a promise to each other when they were very young to climb a mountain. Years later they get in contact again and start acting on that promise. However Aoi has developed a fear of heights, and Hinata has little patience for planning and even less caution.
