"Encouragement of Climb" Theatrical Screening Teases Big Announcement
A special Encouragement of Climb (known in Japan as Yama no Susume) theatrical screening and live talk event is being planned for March 12, 2017, at the Aeon Cinema Musashi Murayama venue in Musashimurayama, Tokyo, Japan. The event will feature voice actress / singer Kana Asumi (the voice of Hinata Kuraue) as a guest.
The event’s planners are also advertising a special “surprise guest” and a big announcement for the event, which is scheduled to begin at 1:30PM JST. Tickets to the event will be available for pre-order beginning on February 03, 2017, while general admission tickets will be available beginning on February 28, 2017, while supplies last.
The original Encouragement of Climb manga by Shiro is serialized in Earth Star Entertainment’s Comic Earth Star shōnen manga magazine. Encouragement of Climb has been adapted into a 12 episode TV anime in 2013 and a 24 episode sequel series in 2014, both of which feature direction by Yusuke Yamamoto and animation by 8-bit.
Since 8-bit is reportedly working an a sequel series this year, some fans are already speculating that the “big announcement” may be a 3rd season of Encouragement of Climb. We’ll just have to wait and see.
