Two more voice actors have joined the cast of Laid-Back Camp (known as Yurucamp△ in Japan), an upcoming TV anime based on the manga by Afro about a group of girls who enjoy outdoor life near the base of Mount Fuji. The new additions include Marina Inoue, who plays Sakura Kagamigahara, the elder sister of Nadeshiko Kagamigara, and Akio Ōtsuka, who provides narration for the series.
The Laid-Back Camp TV anime is directed by Yoshiaki Kyogoku and features animation by C-Station. The series will broadcast in Japan on AT-X, Tokyo MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, and BS11 beginning in January of 2018.
The original Laid-Back Camp manga is serialized in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine, and an English language version of the manga is being developed by Yen Press, who describe the story as follows:
Rin enjoys camping by the lakeshore, Mt. Fuji in view. Nadeshiko rides her bike to see Mt. Fuji, too. As the two eat cup noodles together, what scenery will they behold? This series will make readers fall in love with camping!
