Aww, that was cute. Kokona is on a little trip of her own in the outdoors. Cute doggy :3

This episode was too cute.

Little girl having fun alone, it's because it's her b-day in one day. Her mother tried her best to celebrate before the day comes because she's going mountain climbing on her b-day.

The main girl also makes a cake for that little girl.

There's only 4 episodes left and Honoka has yet to make her appearance...

Kokona really can walk, she goes through Hanno Central Park, stops at Suwahachiman Shrine, go alongside the river, under Hachi-Ko railine to eventually reach Akebono Children's Forest Park, that is about 5.1km, not to mention she has to walk back.

Every time I watch Kokona's story my heart hurts, her household condition is definitely below average, and I am not sure if her father is still alive, or divorced, or has to leave home and work at a foreign place (as many Japanese fathers do). But she remains an innocent, kind-hearted girl who is capable to do many things. Her interaction with her mother is also very sweet.

Next time, finally we will have Tanigawa mountain and Honoka... or not...?

Cooking with plenty of love ^^

Kokona enjoying a stroll around the area. She being really happy to get a pair of shoes for her birthday. The forest park, she really enjoyed herself. Kokona thanking her mom for coming home quickly, her brightness was really cute.

Why can't my life be like Kokona's? I blame my own childhood. :,(

But yes, one of the cutest episodes in Yama no Susume 2. And with 4 episodes, I wonder what's going to happen to the group's trip to Mt Tanigawa. And please, I need to see Honokaaaaaaaaaaa.
What is MAL.

Why I got Muumin vibes from that place which Kokona visited?
Also these characters...
Looks like parody of Moomintroll, Moominmamma and Moominpappa.
That place is based on real location?

Talk about a hidden switch up. Expecting a cooking episode and jumps straight into 8 minutes of Kokona adorableness.

The show barely focuses on Kokona, so this was a nice surprise. Good episode.

I thought this was going to be an episode of Aoi baking a cake while picturing her friends' face. But having Kokona instead was a pleasant surprise!

She walked quite a long way. With the nice sceneries, it did worth it though.

Loved her interactions with her mom. I assume her dad is away or something, since he wasn't brought up in the conversation.

Kokona is such an angel. What a great way to break in your new shoes. Reminds me of the manga The Walking Man.

Kokona's idea of a fairy is definitely weird.

I forgot Kokona is still in middle school, so she still has these kid like ideas. It was definitely a nice episode.

the cake Aoi made looked very delicious.

I was just thinking what a nice, pleasant and relaxing episode that had been...

... and then that muuma flew across. I couldn't help but laugh.

Are you saying if I'm not in middle school anymore I can't have kid like ideas?
Not fair.

Aww Kokona is such a beautiful person. It was definitely a nice and relaxing episode ^^ I want to go to that awesome playground too! Japan has so many cool places. Or maybe I'm just living in the right area lol. There's only a bunch of food places here...I think Kokona is very used to having birthdays by herself that she can make the most of out anyways. I wish I was like her, instead I spent most of my birthdays inside the house doing nothing lol.

Kokona is cute as always! About time she gets more of a focus. Still can't believe she opened her present though...

The ending kind of struck me as sad, that uncertainty of the future added a bit of a darker element to the show. I wonder how the last four episodes will deal with this?

That brown animal that flew in the final scene is actually Hannou's image character Muuma. Hannou is the city that Aoi and co lives in.

Very sweet episode and a bit sad at the same time. I hope her mother doesn't have to work this long every day.

Kokona is the definition of a "Cinnamon Roll" character....

"Beautiful Cinnamon Roll Too Good For This World, Too Pure!"

I love her so much.

And, off topic, but I ship Hinata and Aoi so fcking hard it hurts. I want them to embrace their yuri

Finally Kokona gets her own episode as well. I feel sad for her and her mother, having so little time together probably because her mother has to work a lot (at least it seems like only the two of them live there). It's probably also the reason for them living in a small flat while the others have large houses :(
Anyway, I'm happy that Kokona isn't sad because of this, and can still find fun wherever she goes :) But don't open your present before actually getting it :'D

What a sweet episode!!! I thought it would be focused in Aoi but what a nice surprise it was about Kokona-chan, she's such a lovely girl!! So Moe, can I adopt her?

I hope she has some more screentime during these last episodes.
