TV Tokyo announced on Wednesday that Afro's Laid-Back Camp (Yurucamp Δ) manga is inspiring a live-action series. The series will premiere on TV Tokyo, TV Osaka, and TV Aichi on January 9 at 25:00 (effectively, January 10 at 1:00 a.m.) in the half-hour "Moku-Dra 25" timeslot, on BS TV Tokyo on January 14, and on Amazon Prime Video on January 10.

The series will star:

Haruka Fukuhara as Rin Shima

Yūno Ōhara as Nadeshiko Kagamihara

Momoko Tanabe as Chiaki Ōgaki

Yumena Yanai as Aoi Inuyama

Sara Shida as Ena Saitō

Takashi Ninomiya, Mamoru Koshino, and Kyōhei Tamazawa are directing the series, with scripts by Ayako Kitagawa.

The "slow outdoor manga" follows two young women. Rin likes to go camping by herself along the lakes that provide a scenic view of Mt. Fuji. Nadeshiko loves to take cycling trips by herself to places where she can see Mt. Fuji. After they meet, Rin and Nadeshiko take camping trips, eat cup ramen together, and enjoy the scenery.

Afro launched the manga in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine in 2015, and Houbunsha published the manga's eighth compiled volume on April 26. Yen Press began releasing the manga in English in March 2018.

The manga's first television anime premiered in January 2018, and Crunchyroll streamed the 12-episode series as it aired. The anime's home video release in Japan included an "episode 0" anime.

Heya Kyan (Room Camp), a short anime based on the manga, will premiere in January 2020.

In addition to Heya Kyan, a second regular television season and a film have been green-lit.
