The main difference could be a lack of focus on the main characters from the anime series. The visual revealed in the announcement shows an older woman with short hair, a stark contrast from the teenage cast of the main series.
Laid-Back Camp is a slice of life series that follows two girls Rin Shima, and Nadeshiko Kagamihara as they lackadaisically spend their free time camping and enjoying the outdoors together.
Eventually, Nadeshiko joins her school’s Outdoor Activities Club, and connects the usual loner Rin with new friends: Chiaki Ogaki, and Aoi Inuyama. They are joined by side characters such as Ena Saito who periodically joins the Outdoor Activities Club, and Sakura Kagamihara who is Nadeshiko’s older sister.
The Laid-Back Camp anime is licensed in the west by Crunchyroll, with Yen Press publishing the manga in English.
