Wall-Climbing is not just a simple sport that needs sweat; it is also a sport that requires an intense level of problem-solving power. One needs to evaluate every step they take to reach the top.
When Konomi discovers this sport in her first year at Hanamiya Girls’ High School, her life changes and she decides to put her years of experience as a puzzle solver to use in real life and on a much bigger scale.
The official website of Iwa Kakeru! Sports Climbing Girls has released the first promotional video for the anime. The anime will premiere in October 2020.
The trailer portrays how wall climbing needs both physical endurance as well as problem-solving skills. All the characters in the anime are from different backgrounds, but they have managed to find a common sport to connect over and use their skills in. The official website has released information on characters from four high schools.
The main cast of the anime includes:
|Konomi Kasahara||Sumire Uesaka|
|Jun Uehara||Yui Ishikawa|
|Sayo Yotsuba||Aina Suzuki|
|Nonoaka Sugiura||Miyu Tomita|
The recently released cast and characters are:
|Chinari Iwamine||Mikako Komatsu|
|Chigusa Kumagai||Sachi Kokuryu|
|Masumi Fujita||Chihiro Ueda|
|Rina Samura||Daria Midou|
|Anne Kurusu||Yukari Tamura|
Iwa Kakeru! is being directed by Tetsuro Amino under studio Blade. The anime is adapted from the original manga by Ryudai Ishizaka.
The staff includes Touko Machida for the scripts, Tsubasa Ito for music composition and Yoshihiro Watanabe for character designs.
The anime brings a refreshing take on women’s sports, especially since men in anime and manga dominate the sports genre.
