    Pack Up Your Troubles in an Old Kit Bag. . .
    Encouragement of Climb is back! I fell in love with the original series back in early 2013, and have eagerly awaited this second season. Aoi, Hinata, Kaede, and Kokona are back and once again mountaineering in their own way. Wait, missed season 1? Hinata has convinced her old childhood friend Aoi, with whom she reunites in high school, to join her in climbing mountains, based upon a ...

    For Those Interested
    At first, I was a bit shocked with the first season since it was a mini-series (3min long episodes). I wasn't expecting much, but I was mistaken. The series was amazingly adorable and cute but also had an interesting story line as well as a wonderful moral message attached. With the second season, despite only have 1 episode as of now, there's a lot to be waiting for with the much longer episodes ...

    This series is definitely not sponsored by outdoor gear manufacturers, and neither is this review!
    As I sit here writing this review on my smartphone, which is currently being powered by a rugged yet lightweight GoalZero Venture 30 Power Bank, I find myself overwhelmed by feelings of nostalgia for my own early experiences in the mountains. I enjoy the outdoors myself (something which is extremely uncommon for queer women), and this series conjures up memories of the high peaks of the Angeles ...

    Not as encouraged as I'd like
    Let me say off the top that this is not a bad program, but it isn't so great. Being a short episode format there really isn't much in character development. However much the characters are fun to watch, they lack depth. The focus on mountaineering is really limited to small, easy climbs of two hours max for the last mountain they climbed. The most mountaineering aspect came from an expert ...

    This is the third season of mountain climbing goodness!
    Aoi is discovering the joys of mountain climbing again with all of her new friends. This remains a good educational guide for those interested in mountain climbing, This week they're discussing climbing/hiking shoes, and I was impressed with the excellence of the animation showing the girls how to tie their laces, was clear as a bell! {10:99-10:15} It still manages to come across as "cute" ...

    Cute, but disappointingly shallow
    I went into this show not long after seeing Laid-Back Camp for the first time and was hoping it'd push all the same buttons. Unfortunately for me this wasn't the case.

    The episodes are very short with doesn't allow for much of anything in the way of either plot or description leaving them boring and empty. Over the course of the first season the only character development comes from the main ...

    Muy relajante en pocas dosis!!
    Me encanta este tipo de animes, cortos, mono temáticos, alegres, pero no por esto sin una historia que contar, nunca es una historia compleja, ni interesante, pero si muy relajante de ver y disfrutar, recomendada a quienes les guste los animes de chicas kawaii haciendo cosas kawaii y los animes de recuentos de la vida, y sobre todo recomendada para ver en el celular o la tablet en esos ratos ...

    mountaineering at it's finest
    i still have not finished the series at the point of writing this review but i felt that it needed to be said with the lack of reviews. i stumbled upon this by accident and didn't expect much from it but it's a wonderful slice of life style anime. episodes are short but seeing as how the end goal is something fairly small, they spend almost all of the time on character interactions and internal ...

    A Beautiful Story of Friendship and Devotion
    Those who have seen the short first season of this engaging tale of friendship and self discovery already know what to expect. For those who have not, words such as touching and heartwarming barely begin to scratch the surface. Each of the girls are portrayed with subtlety and depth, with a great deal of attention paid to their individual, and quite distinct, personalities and inner lives. The ...
