Hmm, I think this series' was finale was alright. It had the girls visit town again rather than just outdoor exploring.

Definitely enjoyed Aoi's role in this series overall though as seeing her everyday life felt so real; whether it's outdoors or at school. A pleasant series overall. Not sure if I want another season or not but the third season was mostly enjoyable imo.

Friend girl's b-day is coming up and three of them decided to celebrate it.

Hikasa-san's character's been stricted again (by Yui-chan's character) because she needs to study.

Both of them leaving the present to main girl.

Wow, bakery owner's design is gorgeous.

Flashback when she first entered highschool. Then kouhai girl passing by on the way to school, and both Hikasa-san's character and Yui-chan's character on the stairs before meeting friend girl. Remembering these years.

She accidentally spilled out the surprise, but friend girl is happy. Excitement for wanting to know something about each other. Cosmetics, huh.

Nao-chan's character sent a video message greeting her b-day. Happy b-day party spent.

This overarching theme of friendship and growth fit right in with this show's aesthetic, and it isn't like t's never been dramatic before. Not enough hiking and mountain climbing? Even if that were true, I really enjoyed this third season and look forward to more.

Wow..mentioning Mount Fuji at the last episode while making us anticipate the climb all season.. pls make that 'see you again' happen quick...

But I think this will be my fave episode for the season. Nice blend of all the right stuff that made this series great.

Definitely not enough mountain climbing this season, but the animation improved as compared to S1 & S2. At this rate, we won't see them challenge Fuji again until 2 more seasons. If it is getting another season, I hope they speed things up or do a timeskip.

So in the end Aoi & Hinata's friendship is stronger than ever.
The girls are growing together <3.

This season was more oriented to the relationship of the girls and their personal struggles rather than climbing and hiking, but I think that's good... serves as a transition for what's next....

"See you again"
There should be a season 4, MtFuji should be climbed now...

I just hope they finish the series by climbing mt.fuji, in movie. it'll be a good way to end this ride aren't it boys?
Life isn't always fair, sometimes you need to get a hold your shit together and thrive for something but remember, watch some anime to relieve any stress within the process.

If some anime makes you feel what they do feel throughout the series, it means that is a good anime.

I think 14 minutes is the perfect time, we just need more season in less time.

I really hope to see them again!

This season. This fucking season. When did the series get so consistently good at portraying characters, moods and conflicts?

I hope we don't have to wait another 3,5 years for the next season.

Cute ending! Leave it to Aoi to accidentally spill out the surprise, lol. Hinata putting on that lipstick, was not expecting that!

I think there was less mountain climbing this season, but it was still enjoyable. Didn't like the Hinata jealousy part, but at least it wasn't dragged out. Could definitely go for another season~

A calming ending with Aoi and friends enjoying their friendship and making new memories...

This season focused more on the character relationships rather than the exploration and mountain-climbing elements of the previous season, which I honestly wasn't fond of at first, but I think I can let that slide given how relaxing it was to watch this anime again. I'm assuming that this is more like a prep season so that everyone will be mentally ready to tackle on Mt. Fuji again. Besides, Kaede still needs to finish her studies hehehe. We're definitely getting another season because...

They didn't even make it to Mt. Fuji this season. That sucks. Oh, well. Cute show as always.

S4 when?

No! Tell me first if there will be a fourth season soon!!

I loved this last episode. It was a heartwarming ending for a heartwarming season. I just loved Aoi's role during these whole thirteen episodes, I was really nice to see how much she has grown as a friend, as an employee and as a character.

So, this season was more focused on the everyday life side of the characters and the bond they have with each other rather than the hiking itself. Usually I would see this as something negative BUT since it was so well handled, I must say this was a great decision.

Oh man, it was an amazing season, I will really miss Aoi and co. especially Kokona, my little princess :/ I just hope there is a season 4 in some near future. 2-cour if it's possible 8bit Studio, please. 8/10

P.S.: Also, I really... like... REALLY want to know what they said to each other in the river. What could Aoi have heard to blush and react like that?...

Very enjoyable season even if it felt a little short considering the barely over 10min episodes, anyhow happy i waited and watched all of it the past two days.
9/10's hoping for a full 4th season, but feel that it will most likely be a movie sequel next in line for this show(just my guess).

Very good closing episode, can't wait for final season the next year!
This series reminds of Hidamari Sketch more and more (minus Shaft-style)

And I just realized that before they even tackle Fuji-san again Kaede graduates of their school and Kokona becomes first year instead. Surely the stay friends even after that. Expect even more feels the next time.

I agree so much with this statement. This anime is getting better and better with each season, it's a shame it's this underwatched. I'm really looking forward to the next season!

Exactly, this is how a relaxing show must be done. The character progression is outstanding, the way the relationships develop feels natural, the flow of the episodes is balanced, and the art improves with each season. I think (and hope) that "see you again!" at the end means we'll get to see Mt. Fuji climbed sooner or later :)

Well, it's the end.

This season was kind weak in my opinion =/ which kind of disappointing me since I really did enjoy the other two.

The first half was "ok"
The second was focused in what you could say "unnecessary melodrama"

Well, as an overall it was... fine/ok

Lovely ending of this third season! Really lovely season in general as well, and with such an open ending there's always room for more mountain hiking goodness!

What a great ending for this season. Hinata is as precious as ever, she is still my favorite.
Although we had less climbing, I really liked the drama and the portrayal of Hinata and Aoi's friendship, especially with their talk at the lake this episode.

I can only hope that we will get more seasons later. We need at least another one where they finally all climb Mt. Fuji.
This anime is really underappreciated. I'm giving this season an 8/10, just like the previous season. It's not perfect, but I love it nonetheless.

Sadness pervades me, but it must sooner or later finish this anime series. Excellent season, like the previous ones, the message that has been constantly conveyed in all the episodes has been invaluable. Each episode was enjoyable to follow and entertaining, as well as being beautiful to see for the places shown.

"You don't know, so you try to learn. You want to learn, so it's fun hanging out. I think it's fun to get to know each other." Hinata's take on getting to know people is so simple yet ever so insightful. Exchanging secrets with Aoi was a cute touch, especially since we can only imagine how to fill in the blanks as each of them react in hushed surprise.

Maybe it's just because Yama no Susume has been constantly growing on me, but S3 felt like my favorite by far. Every episode just made me smile ear to ear and fall in love with the dynamic between Hinata & Aoi. I especially adore Hinata and how she hides her thoughtfulness for Aoi behind her mischievous, nonchalant teasing. This season also really shows how much Hinata actually depends on Aoi. You really get to see a more sensitive side of her in the later episodes as jealousy and frustration build up over missing her time spent with Aoi.

This season's emphasis on side adventures as opposed to the straightforward climbing was also refreshing. Given how S3 takes place in fall, it felt like I was watching Yama no Susume off-season. And considering how close it now is to my favorite season, I'm quite excited to meet autumn with this new experience fresh in my mind.
