5 main leads, now a little older, take in view with Mt. Fuji in the distance
The official website for the anime of Afro‘s Yurucamp (Yurukyan△, Laid-Back Camp Δ) manga unveiled the early summer 2022 opening and a new visual for the Eiga Yurukyan△ (Laid-Back Camp Movie) on Saturday. The visual shows the five young woman — all a little older now — standing before a wide open field. In the distance amid the other mountains looms Japan’s iconic Mount Fuji.
Afro noted that the staff checked back with the manga creator at nearly every step of the production from the earliest script draft and designs. The creator noted that the characters are a little bit older and the personal anticipation at seeing what even Afro has not seen yet. Director Yoshiaki Kyougoku thanked the fans for their support which made this film happen, and joked about once again going location-scouting and eating delicious camp food while making anime.
The television anime’s five main cast members are reprising their roles, and the staff members returning from the television anime include:
Shochiku is distributing the film.
The anime adapts Afro‘s “slow outdoor manga” which follows two young women. Rin likes to go camping by herself along the lakes that provide a scenic view of Mt. Fuji. Nadeshiko loves to take cycling trips by herself to places where she can see Mt. Fuji. After they meet, Rin and Nadeshiko take camping trips, eat cup ramen together, and enjoy the scenery.
The first anime premiered in January 2018, and Crunchyroll streamed the 12-episode series as it aired. The ROOM CAMP (Heya Camp) short anime spinoff premiered in January 2020. The second season of the anime premiered on January 7 and is ending on Thursday. The cast and staff announced the movie in an October 2018 event.
Afro launched the manga in Houbunsha‘s Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine in 2015. Yen Press began releasing the manga in English in March 2018.
