Like always, Aoi and Hinata will go off on new adventures and give us more information on climbing. Although there might not be much of a twist in the plot, there will be a new character called Koharu.
Koharu is the president of Aoi’s mountaineering club. A new character might add some much-needed freshness to this long-running series.
Koharu was first teased in a trailer that was released in September 2021. You can check out the video right here:
Since Crunchyroll simul-streamed the previous seasons of Encouragement of Climb, the same treatment can be expected towards the new season.
Nonetheless, Encouragement of Climb is a cute anime that will relax you and strip away all the stress from homework and work pressure. Next Summit will be no less calming, and I can’t wait to know which mountain they will conquer next.
