The Japanese theatrical premiere date for the upcoming film based on the Laid-Back Camp series has been announced for early summer.
Laid-Back Camp- also known as Yuru Camp– is a slice of life series by Afro; following 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 2015 ongoing manga was adapted into an anime in 2018, and ran until April 1st this year. The film was announced earlier this year, and promised to feature a story “which is a little different from the previous series” according to the official site.
