Have you been encouraged to climb yet?
New episode in a few hours! Lets hope our anon subber is as fast as he was last week.
I went hiking last Thursday, inspired by Yama no Susume. It wasn't exactly a very steep or very difficult place, just some local hills, but it was fun.
The initial climb wasn't that bad, although I did reach one place where the incline was something like 50-60 degrees. I found a nice viewing spot that I relaxed at a little while, then continued onward.
I found myself sort of lost after a little while, but I decided to just keep going on whatever trail was going upwards, in hopes of eventually reaching a peak. After a while, I reached a very steep area where it was literally climbing up a 70 degree incline up rough rock terrain, that was honestly incredibly and terribly frightening because there was no guard rails or any protection of any sort, and if I had lost my footing I would have fallen several dozen feet and probably broken something if not killed myself. I'm pretty sure the place was technically off-limits, since there was no signs or marked trails or anything of that kind, but I just really, really wanted to reach the top.
After a few heart-pounding minutes, though, I reached it. It wasn't a peak, as I later found out, but it was still a really high up place with a great view. There were some rocky outcroppings, so I sat down and ate my lunch and enjoyed the view. Took some pictures, pic related being the best of the bunch.
After a while of hanging around on top of the hill, I made my way back down (This time by sliding down the rocks on my bum) which was about as terrifying, if not more, than climbing up.
I ran out of water halfway back to the parking lot, so that sucked, but at least now I know to pack more water next time. I was exhausted when I got back, but altogether it was really TANOSHII and I can't wait to go again.
Didn't run into any rattlesnakes, either, so that's a plus.
I'm glad I watched this anime, since it got me into a hobby I wouldn't have otherwise even thought of trying out.
>Live in Missouri
>Mountains are small and filled with hicks, but are some of the prettiest hills in the world
>Move to Illinois
>So flat a tiny hill makes me shocked.
>Got lazy and fat and don't hike anymore anyway
I want my hills again I hate it here.
Was she nopan that day?
Did she intend to make it up to Aoi with her body?
Anon please follow safer paths, and bring a loli.
Move to Washington state like I did. I used to be fat too but after I moved here I was motivated to get back in shape, lost 90lb, and just climbed my first mountain 2 weeks ago.
B-But I wanted to reach the top, anon... ;_;
You should print a picture (or use a phone) to display the character on the pic. I might even start hiking for once cause of this anime.
It sounds like you had a good time, anon. I'm happy for you.
Sounds fun /a/non. I used to do that all the time with my friends back when they were still alive, even though most of the mountains in the area were shitty. All those mountains are now residential area and businesses now, though.
I guess I'll share the story from my 2 day climb/hike.
I knew it was going to be a long day so I set out hours before sunrise. By the time I got to the trail head there was only a faint hint of pre-dawn light so I had to use my flashlight for the first 30 min. About an hour and a half in I finally get to the trail crossroad where I can start ascending to the summit. By this time the sun was finally filtering in through the thick old growth canopy, and the forest was slowly waking up with the sound of birds.
Trail has been steep for a while now after one more hour in and a 1,000 feet higher, and I'm now starting to feel the full 40+ pound pack clinging to me. By the time I crossed my second stream I decided to stop for a snack and refill my water.
A few hours in now I start to notice something is wrong. "How many times has the trail turned left and right?!" I brake out my map and try to figure out where I am. The trail shape looks all wrong, so I take out my compass to triangulate where I am, and fuck the USGS! They omitted so many turns the miles are way off, this trail has been almost 1.5 times longer than posted. Fuck it I'm half way up now best push on.
Now to my horror I have sweated off my bug spray and here come the mosquitoes, so I drop my gear and dig out the spray but not fast enough before they drew god knows how much blood.
1:30pm I lost my tiny blood sucking pursuers and reached the barren rock summit, and fuck it's hot up here out of the shade.
View up there at 4,200 ft was nice, so I sat and enjoyed the view of Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier for and hour while I ate and drank. Most of my water was gone so it was time to move down the trail that would take me into the valley for my next refill.
After about an hour of very shallow decent I came to a cliff. The trail zigzagged all the way down for the next 2,000 feet. A little ways down the trail got bad. At points the trail was a foot wide at best. It was badly eroded and even gone in some places where I had to step over.
4 times now the trail gave out under foot. I should go back, but there is no water for hours back the way I came, and it's 90 degrees out. I had no choice but to keep going. The sun is getting low now as I finally make it of that death trap trail, and I finally reach water. My life is no longer in danger!
As I stop to drink I find the hike has taken it's toll. My exhausted legs are shacking violently whenever I stand still, but I have to keep going till I find some level ground. 8pm the sunlight is fading and I find a nice spot by the river to set up for the night. I cock up some ramen noodles and down some trail mix before bed. The rest of the hike home was uneventful, and I got to my car by 2pm.
in all I lost 5 pounds too.
>Now to my horror I have sweated off my bug spray and here come the mosquitoes, so I drop my gear and dig out the spray but not fast enough before they drew god knows how much blood.
Why is it that bad?
She is. And it's rubbing off on Hinata.
Did some funny guys asked you to join them on the hot springs?
Maybe in her own show.
But in general, she ain't even close to Sakura.
Even Usagi is way better.
Is the focus upon the elephant, at the end of the skirt-dropping scene of episode five, a metaphor for Aoi being a trap?
It's appears to be an obvious hint, but I'd be interested to see if anyone agrees with me.
when a shot is just millimeters away from being a pantie shot but never gets there it just makes me all the more hard, it's 10 times more lewd then showing them.
If you want for argue about subs then go make another thread.
That shit is not welcome here.
camping too, eh? now that's commitment. so far i've only done a short (but difficult) hike and an all-day hike. nothing over-night that requires a tent or anything 'cause i'm cheap and poor.
drank from this, didn't die of dysentery [1/4]
the hike from the parking area by the highway took a good 2.5-3 hours over 9km of not too steep trails. worth it [2/4]
super, natural british columbia
get out of the way trees, there's a glacier or something across that lake. [3/4]
finally, the shitty panoramic money shot. i swam in the lake. it was like sports drink radioactive blue and cold as fuck even in the middle of august. i would bring sandals next time 'cause the rocks by the shores are all volcanic and sharp as fuck. [4/4]
I used to live in Kodiak, Alaska a long time ago. Mountains and trails were things we did every weekend as a family thing
As an interesting fact, if Kodiak were a little girl, she would be cute as fuck
>would love to go mountain climbing
>don't think my scooter could handle the trails
Kokona-chan is for tender rape
my pictures from my shitty phone don't even do it justice. you know those pictures of cherenkov radiation? it's like that but for the whole damn lake. it's like they dumbed sports drink into the lake then used it as cooling for some nuclear experiment. pretty neat.
It's fucking criminal that the AOTS isn't getting timely subs
Really makes you appreciate Horriblesubs
Yeah, Lake Louise is like that too. It really does look bizarre.
She probably funs it for herself every night.
For your sake I'm glad you don't recognize that image.
>tfw I live in Florida and it would take me 12 hours to drive to the closest mountains
That smile does weird things to my heart. I'm not used to this.
>Live just next to the Ozarks in Missouri
>have a right knee that has undergone two surgeries
>have to wear a large knee brace
>cannot walk more than a mile without being in screaming pain
I just came here to say that I started watching the first season today and I really like how all the mountain friends have those little dots for noses.
Also, if I could be sexually attracted to nature scenery I don't think I would have any cum left at this point.
I don't know, maybe there's something wrong with me on a basic level. Oh well.
I'm probably preaching to the choir here, but I'm upset that they made this a short series, I need more than 3 minutes per episode! I mean I marathoned the first season in all of like 40 minutes - that's like two full length episodes ;__;
Aoi knows what's coming.
I think the Ist season's short episodes were a way to sort of elaborately storyboard the concept, themes and narrative potential to potential financial backers. Another recent series that tried this approach but so far hasn't produced longer episodes would be Auria, which is actually a very good school SoL with a less meta Yuyushiki-like vibe about it.
>Dad and I used to go to the mountains every autumn to watch the leaves change colors
>Always go up really fucking high and get mild altitude sickness
>that ear popping effect
>Now the weather's so shit and nature's so unappealing
Doing it too much takes away the magic.
Isn't that more the effect of growing up and seeing stuff you did in your childhoof in a different way because you're a different person now, i.e. a person who posts on 4chan?
For me, it's more the fact that I'm worried I'd get a heartattack on a climb.
I already feel like I'm going to die walking a few blocks to the supermarket. And I'm actually very fit. Just the age catching up to me. It's like there's zero stamina in the tank. I have no idea how older people regularly climb.
I'm healthy in almost every way except for having no gas tank at all times and having my knees buckle while walking a very short distance.
So I guess it really is abnormal to be that de-energized. Older people (like elderly even) think I should pep up. But I can't.
You're even older than me, and I thought I was way too old for this board.
Well, like I said, my body is perfectly fine. My knees buckle because of the lack of energy. I'm built like a horse and people assume I'd be an athlete. But I feel like I'm going to keel over if I walk a few blocks. I'd literally be gasping for air. I used to love climbing mountains and trails, but nowadays I'd black out if I go maybe 100 feet.
Yeah. It feels weird being closer to 40 than 30. And on /a/ at 4 in the morning. Such is life.
That is a serious issue. You're in your 30s there is no reason not to go get a check up. It happens when you get older.
Because some threads, like this one, make it still worth coming here.
Because there is no other place on the internet where I want to share my love for anime.
I'm too scared it'd be something serious enough that I can't exercise or have a certain job anymore. I already get crap for looking fit but acting like a 70 year old. It's bound to get worse if it turns out I really do need a wheelchair and walking cane.
It is what it is, regardless if you get it diagnosed or not.
You will suffer from the same condition regardless of what you do.
Only thing is that either you suffer helplessly without having anything you can do or you have someone telling you what it is or might be and get options and possibilities to get it treated.
So you have the choice between 100% bad and maybe 50% bad, 50% good.
I come here because this place is not full of weeaboo retards of the gaia-kind.
It is full of other kinds of retards, but those are less shit than gaia-retards.
Have the same problem. Though, It's not that bad, I can walk up to 7 km, but that's the limit, after 2 km I'm already sweating like a pig and breathing like Metro MC when he runs out of filters. And I'm only 23! If I continue like that, by 32 I'll probably die from walking 100 meters.
This fall I'm gonna do cardio like there's no tomorrow, I sure don't want to die at 32 from walking petty 100 meters.
1 1/2 years ago I was completely down as well. Short sprint to catch the bus and I was out of breath. A few stairs, heartbeat rate up immediatly.
Started going to a fitness center then. In the first 2-3 months everytime after I worked out I was just exhausted, but then it got better, much better. 8 months later I took part in a running event. It was only 6.5 km and it took me like 40 minutes, but I did it and I was really happy.
I miss the days when I was 18 years old. I was a cardio monster, running up everything, being a total menace to society. Now elderly people pass me by because I'm too slow. And people keep thinking I'm faking my stamina out of laziness. I get shit daily from people as a result. I sometimes want to dye my hair gray so I look older. It's got that bad now.
I actually did die a few years ago in 2008. Died for about a minute and couldn't breathe for 3 minutes or so due to stomach medicine not sitting well with my body.
Maybe. Still scared of the news. Not even sure I have the stamina for treatment.
Where do I send my bitcoin donation for your blog?
Is Kokona a poorfag? Last episode she talked about how she hasn't eaten crepes or icecream in a long time, and then there is this.
I want to see her house.
I haven't climbed a mountain since last december. Some friends went climbing last weekend but I was down with a cold (and haven't trained in months anyway).
I'm gonna start training again and do it.
Late convert here, marathoned the first season and the first 5 eps of S2 yesterday.
God, this show is comfy. It makes Non Non Biyori look like a Michael Bay movie in comparison.
And all that scenery porn, damn. Biggest surprise is the actual animation, which is just perfect. And the lovely, almost Shaft-like OP.
Aoibutt is best butt, btw.
Yay time for the climb!
So do I watch this before or after Zankyou no Terror?

Aoi's bedroom is so fucking cool
>This is also what Hinata thought.

I'm getting some bad vibes about Fuji-san happening so early in the series. It makes me think that something bad actually is going to happen and they're going to have a failed expedition for some reason, then the series will wrap up with Aoi having to convince her mom to let her go again, and conquer Fuji once and for all.
Not to mention Aoi having newfound fears associated with climbing and having to be "encouraged of climb" all over again.
Well, I'm an actual 12 years old girl.
What would be left for the 3rd season then? K2?
I don't want it to turn into survival drama.
First they climb Olympus. Then, empowered by the gods, they strike Britain with an iron fist.
It was a little unsettling. I'm used to camping in the south east but here in Washington there are no crickets at night to the silence is creepy.
Fortunately I camped near the river so the constant sound of rushing water helped me sleep.
And then they find an ancient civilizations technology and come back to take over Earth.
Hinata is a stinker
I just now realised there's Olympus on Mars.
Yama no Susume Season 3: Aldnoah.Planetes
Won't make that mistake again.
Have a bathing Aoi.
no fun futa mom remove from screen
>Aoi falls off Fuji-chan and dies.
I don't think she'd ever climb a girl other than Hinata.
>first episode after her death is a flashback episode showing Hinata and Aoi as friends in grade school
Wait, I live on a volcanic island.
Does that mean that my daily life is a comfy mountain adventure?
That's interesting anon.
>Climbing the Sugarloaf to launch Adams into Buckingham Palace
I liked season 1 but for some reason I held off on S2 until today.
I've seen 3 episodes so far. The opening is so great that I made WEBMs of it. I made a full length one with sound as well as three 30 second ones without sound to fit 4chan's limit.
This annoys me way more than it should.
Bananas are a Hinata thing.
