According to My Navi News, a TV anime adaptation of Shiro’s slice-of-life manga series, 「Yama no Susume」, has been green-lit for production. 8bit will be the studio behind the project. Its broadcast premiere will arrive sometime in 2013.
The story revolves around two childhood friends, Aoi (in-doors type who’s afraid of heights) and Hinata (out-doors type who’s passion is mountaineering). The two attempt to climb to the top of a mountain in order to view the sunrise — as they did when they were younger.
