Laid-Back Camp


Comedy, Slice of Life


Rin Shima is a girl who enjoys camping by herself during the off-season. While camping at the foot of Mt. Fuji one day during winter she comes to the aid of a new transfer student to her school named Nadeshiko Kagamihara who finds herself lost. The two enjoy curry noodles together and take in the scenery, sparking an interest in camping for Nadeshiko. Together with like-minded classmates from school, Nadeshiko joins the Outdoor Activities Circle. The group’s mission: building comradery while enjoying the great outdoors and its many splendors.


Yuru Camp began as a manga series by Afro that has been serialized in Houbunsha’s seinen manga magazine Manga Time Kirara Forward since July 2015. As of February 2018, it has been collected into three tankobon volumes. The manga is licensed in North America by Yen Press and the first volume will be released in March 2018.

An anime adaptation of the series premiered in Japan on Jan. 4, 2018. It is directed by Yoshiaki Kyougoku (Tokyo Ghoul, Penguindrum) with Jin Tanaka (Date A Live, One Piece) as series composer, Mutsumi Sasaki (Futakoi, Chaos;Child) as character designer and chief animation director, and animation production by C-Station (Girl Friend Beta, Star-Myu). The anime’s opening theme is “Shiny Days” by Asaka and the ending theme is “Fuyu Biyori” by Eri Sasaki. The anime is streamed internationally through Crunchyroll.
