The box art illustration was drawn by 8bit, the animation studio behind the anime.
We fulfilled that promise. What lies ahead for Hinata and me…?
After climbing Mount Tanigawa, the mountain of their promise, Aoi gets an idea: “I want to try climbing the mountains I’ve already climbed, again.”
By doing so, she might just be able to grow a little more… and besides, if she climbs with everyone she has not gone with yet, she might get to see a different view this time.
Hinata: “Why not?”
Kaede: “There are mountains we haven’t climbed together.”
Kokona: “I also want to climb the mountains we’ve done before, again.”
Honoka: “I want to go…!”
Koharu: “Can I come, too?”
Encouraged by everyone’s agreement, Aoi’s mountain re-climbing challenge begins!
