Shiro's slice-of-life mountaineering manga Yama no Susume
has yet to even have its first compiled volume released in Japan, this June 12, and already an anime adaptation is being announced
for it. It will be a TV anime series, with studio 8bit working on it for a 2013 launch. The studio's other upcoming anime project is Busou Shinki
(airing from October).
The manga's story follows two mountain climbing girls named Aoi and Hinata, who are also childhood friends. Hinata loves mountains, but Aoi prefers staying inside and has acrophobia (fear of heights). Nevertheless, the two decide to climb a mountain together, in order to see the sunrise from its peak - as they did when they were younger.
Looks cute enough!
