Encouragement of Climb (aka Yama no Susume)'s second season has apparently been killed in a tragic rock slide. The first episode went up on time, but now all it says is "[f]uture episodes of Encouragement of Climb Season 2 will be made available as soon as we are able to."

Is it that little-watched that CR doesn't even feel the need to throw translators at it, or is it some problem with the licensors?

There's an issue with the license, they can't put any more up until it's straightened out without getting sued.


The contract details are not quite finalized, but we wanted to clear the rights to at least get the first episode out so we wouldn’t have to delay the whole series. We try our best to provide as much information as we can regarding delays, but sometimes we are contractually bound until everything is signed and stamped.

(Moved to support questions, since it seems like it's about CR more than the anime..)

Remember, CR pays big money to get these streaming licenses, even for shorts like Climb. As Insomnist says, it's better not to get sued...

Where was that posted? I did some cursory searching; I try to look for answers myself before I complain.

It was during a CR Reddit AMA this weekend, so kind of buried.

Someone posted it on the discussion thread for the show yesterday though.

That's great, thanks. Of course I couldn't even find that topic when I searched for the title in the Anime forums list; all that came up (for the first page's results, anyway) was a dozen references to "Post the anime you watched today." I also didn't see that topic going three pages back eyeballing the titles of the threads; I guess I missed it. But that's why I created a new topic. If I could have found that one, I'd have had my answer. The searching here is truly awful.

Anyway, thanks again.

Sure thing! For future reference that's also a thread index at the top of the forum that lorreen keeps updated.

The forum search function definitely doesn't get you anywhere 99% of the time.

It certainly isn't great. It would be helpful if they added an option to restrict the search the topic titles only.
