posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The upcoming fantasy series Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! has teamed up with the girls of Encouragement of Climb for crossover artwork. FUNA oversaw the collaboration after realizing both the Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! light novels and Encouragement of Climb manga are published by Earth Star Entertainment.
Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! novel illustrator Itsuki Akata and Encouragement of Climb creator Shiro drew the heroine Mile sharing a large shank of meat with Aoi around a campfire. Akata shared the comment, "All of the characters of Yama no Susume are cute… really… I want to go camping with Aoi-chan, too…"
Shiro added, "Originally I thought, 'Will series with completely different genres fit?' but unexpectedly, they actually match. I was surprised. (laughs)"
A retweet campaign will launch on September 24 and 30 winners will receive a copy of the illustration by lottery.
Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! will premiere on October 7. Crunchyroll will stream the series outside Asia. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed both the novels and the manga, and it describes the story:
When she turns ten years old, Adele von Ascham is hit with a horrible headache–and memories of her previous life as an eighteen-year-old Japanese girl named Kurihara Misato. That life changed abruptly, however, when Misato died trying to aid a little girl and met god. During that meeting, she made an odd request and asked for average abilities in her next life. But few things–especially wishes–ever go quite as planned.
The third season of Encouragement of Climb premiered in July 2018. Based on Shiro's Yama no Susume manga, the series tells the story of childhood friends: Aoi, a girl who prefers staying inside and who has acrophobia, and Hinata, a girl who loves mountains. The two decide to climb a mountain in order to once again see the morning sun from its peak as they did when they were young.
