Synopsis:

Aoi's childhood dream of climbing the tallest mountains in the world was destroyed when the girl fell off a jungle gym, developing a crippling fear of heights in the process. Now in high school, the teen enjoys more mundane activities like knitting and sitting quietly, and has absolutely no interest in risking her life in the wilderness. But Aoi's sheltered life is shattered with the reappearance of Hinata, her boisterous childhood friend who's determined to pull the girl out of her shell and scale some mountains! Together, the two learn about climbing gear and try to face their fears, all while becoming the best of friends!

Tamayura

Tamayura
  • OVA (4 eps x 20 min)
  • 2010

A photograph is a mysterious force that creates magical moments the instant the shutter closes and allows people’s hearts to connect. For the new girl in town, Fuu Sawatari, this is more than a saying but a way of life as she spends her days quietly attempting to capture those special instances on film and use them to bring others joy. Along with her friends – and her beloved camera – Fuu reminisces about her father, begins to contemplate where her future lies and wonders whether she can capture more of the mysterious Tamayura light bubbles in her photos filled with warmth and friendship.

Although they center around two different hobbies, Yama no Susume and Tamayura are quite similar. They're both slice of life shows dealing with a young girl moving forward with the help of her friends. Yama no Susume is shorter and not as mellow as Tamayura, but they definitely share the same atmosphere. If you're looking for something that's short and sweet, give these titles a try.

Encouragement of Climb reminds me a lot of Junichi Sato's style of slice-of-life (I think he calls them "healing" anime), such as Tamayura. Though they're about cute teenage girls, both prioritize relaxation over silly jokes.

Hidamari Sketch

Hidamari Sketch

Yuno is a high school student who dreams of becoming a famous artist; and after being admitted at Yamabuki High School of Arts, she is one step closer to her dream. Yuno must move to an apartment complex near the school, and there, in Hidamari-so, she meets three new friends: Miyako, a very active person who will do anything to get her hands on something to eat; Hiro, an upperclassman who is obsessed with weight gain; and Sae, the oldest of the bunch and also a tomboy. From wild cosplaying teachers to bizarre school myths, Yuno and friends enjoy fun times and crazy days at Yamabuki High!

Another super relaxing and adorable series about cute girls doing cute things, that's centered around one particular hobby (either art or mountaineering). Both use a lot of pastel colors and are less energetic than most slice-of-life series of this type.

K-On!

K-On!

It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!

Not exactly sure why, but I get some vibe from Encouragement of Climb that reminds me of K-On! (cute high school girls?). Even if it is much more energetic, I think fans of this show might enjoy K-On.

Another relaxing and adorable slice-of-life series. Both are about friends who had briefly fallen out of contact/friendship coming back together and having fun. Also, both deal with childhood dreams that the girls are trying to fulfill.
