Laid-Back Camp Second Season AnnouncedGet ready for more laid-back camping.

That’s because a whole bunch of new Laid-Back Camp, also known as Yurukyan, was just announced.

The word came from an official Laid-Back Camp event in Saitama, Japan October 7, where a short anime, second season and feature film were all revealed.

The surprise announcement was made by Yumiri Hanamori, the voice actor who plays Nadeshiko Kagamihara on the series. Hanamori stated, “Rin-chan, everyone, let’s go camping again!”

The new Laid-Back Camp anime will be released in the following order: short anime, season two, film.

The first season of Laid-Back Camp, based on the manga by Afro, was something of a phenomenon in Japan, inspiring viewers who had never been camping before to grab some equipment and give it a try.

Here’s how Crunchyroll describes the series: 

Nadeshiko, a high school student who had moved from Shizuoka to Yamanashi, decides to see the famous, 1000 yen-bill-featured Mount Fuji. Even though she manages to bike all the way to Motosu, she’s forced to turn back because of worsening weather. Unable to set her eyes on her goal, she faints partway to her destination. When she wakes up, it’s night, in a place she’s never been before, with no way of knowing how to get home. Nadeshiko is saved when she encounters Rin, a girl who is out camping by herself. This outdoorsy girls story begins with this first encounter between Nadeshiko and Rin.
