A third season for the comfy camping anime Laid-Back Camp has been officially announced. An official release date for the third season is still up in the air.
The news of a new season for the series comes in the wake of the movie’s successful release in Japan. It’s a surprising move since the movie felt like a farewell for the series, taking place in the near future instead of in high school (it’s worth mentioning that the manga is still ongoing). 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.
