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. In the coming third season, they enjoy hiking beautiful mountains with colored leaves and the story gets even more colorful when they become friends with local school girls!!

A third season of the same as the last two. If you liked them, you’ll like this. If not, then why the hell are you still watching?


Comfy 10/10


Sadly not as good as the other seasons. The drama between Aoi and Hinata was just too much, and Hinata was an enormous brat. Too bad. :|


A fantastic continuation for the franchise. The character animation is gorgeous and the arc between Aoi and Hinata is heart wrenching.


Better than season 2, but a bit too heavy on the drama for my taste. I would’ve liked more mountain climbing and less bitching.
