Video games, especially puzzle games, were always at the center of Konomi Kasahara's life. However, upon entering Hanamiya High School, she decides to break away from this lifestyle. As Konomi wanders the halls in search of a new activity to engage herself in, she stumbles upon a gigantic wall owned by the school's rock climbing team. Fascinated, she attempts to scale the wall, discovering that she can use her puzzle-solving skills to help her reach the top.

Certain that she has found her calling, Konomi immediately joins the club. As she strives to improve her climbing skills, Konomi, alongside the rest of the Hanamiya Climbing Team, will learn what it truly means to be a "sports climber" and work to achieve victory in the upcoming competitions.

Iwa Kakeru! was easily one of my favourite shows this season. It's actually the first sports anime I've ever seen, and I was not disappointed at all. From the characters' designs, interactions to the actual sport of climbing itself, everything was great for me.

It's not too ambitious in anything it does, at least in this first ...

Kasahara Konomi. During middle school, she won many puzzle tournaments in Japan. Thanks to her hobby, she enjoyed her school life; she thought she did not need anything else. She was wrong. Her hobby resulted in poor academic performance, so she had to reconsider her life choices. Thankfully, her hard work pays off and she enrolls in Hanamiya girls’ high school.

I will not try to hide the fact that this anime is quite unique. I mean, how many anime about sport climbing do you know? Kasahara Konomi is a hikimori, who only plays games. Her life shows her that everything is not easy and one ...

Ok, so another sports theme anime with a josie genre has ended and as one top reviewer said " The animators are a bunch of gumbies," well, I couldn't agree more. since it kind of look like that, given that the original creator of this series, Ishizaka, Ryuudai, wasn't much of a good story teller in the realm of sports, and just like the highly recommended anime " Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? " the original creators tend to give out helpful instruction, that weren't very much of factual as compared to the actual sports itself, the said 'helpful instruction" were just a means to give ...
