Cast, staff reunite for season premiering in spring 2021

TV Tokyo announced on Thursday that the live-action series based on Afro's Laid-Back Camp (Yurucamp Δ) manga is getting a second season next spring. The series will also stream on Amazon Prime Video in Japan. The announcement came during the exclusive online event for buyers of the first season's Blu-ray Disc and DVD boxes, and it also confirmed that the cast and staff are returning for the second season.

The cast includes (left to right, starting with top row in image below):

  • 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
  • Yurina Yanagi as Sakura Kagamihara
  • Kaho Tsuchimura as Minami Toba

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

The live-action series' first season premiered in Japan this past January.

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 10th compiled volume in March. Yen Press began releasing the manga in English in March 2018.

The manga's first television anime premiered in January 2018. Crunchyroll streamed the 12-episode series as it aired. The second season will premiere in January 2021.
