Not half so amusing as expected, but more than twice as heartfelt. Please enjoy this lovely, touching final episode.
And we’re all done for this season! Thank you as always for joining us, and I hope you were all still able, through inconsistent schedules and pages of dumb notes, to love this show as much as it deserves. Yama no Susume’s always been a standout show in few ways, and most of those were on display in this, our fourth cour. And while much of the first and second seasons was about Aoi’s personal growth, in the third we finally see that come to fruition and what that really means for everyone else (a certain someone else, in particular), and it’s a careful character consideration that we don’t often see from cute girl shows. Episode 10 is the kind of striking, reversing, illuminating episode it takes fifty to set up.
That gets coupled with the Susume-standard once-in-a-while-weird animation, some killer voice acting, an astounding soundtrack they kept up their sleeves until the last four episodes (doesn’t Episode 11 make you want to go climb a mountain?! Woo!), our wonderful scenery, and a ton of Yuuka. I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir in the final episode’s blog post, but Yama no Susume really is a special show, and I’m so grateful to have been able to bring it to you.
The seasons turn, the scenery changes colours, and we continue to make memories. Thanks for coming climbing with us, and don’t forget to actually get out there and do it yourself! It’s the least you can do for the Yama no Musumes. Do some camping while you’re at it, and you’ve got Winter and Summer covered both. Yuru Yama no Camp Susume: Δ Season.
That’s all from me. See you again!
Akatsukin: Well this was a first, picking up a series in the third season. I still remember when Yama Girls was a little baby anime, barely a few minutes each week, and look where we are now. I’ve really liked the clear progression and motifs used throughout each season, from learning how to climb, to trying to scale Mount Fuji, and now to bridging the gap between two people’s hearts. I don’t know about the rest of you, but this is exactly the sort of plot development I love. Here’s to hoping it’ll continue in the future.
P.S. Yuru Camp OVAs are on the way, and so is SSR. I’m sure I’ve been saying this for like two seasons straight, but I’m terribly sorry, and thank you for your continued patience.
