Second season of Laid-Back Camp (Yuru Camp)
Genre(s): Slice of Life, Comedy, Comfy
Age-Appropriateness: 12+ (Occasional hot spring scenes of bathing girls, alcohol references)
TheAwersome Rating: 8.2 / 10 (More of the same good comf)
Premise: Having spent Christmas camping with her new friends, Rin Shima embarks on a solo-camping trip to see the New Year sunrise by the sea. All goes according to plan until unforeseen weather blocks the roads back home, making a return trip impossible. Rin, who is now stranded for a few days, is invited by Nadeshiko Kagamihara to stay at her grandmother’s house.
What is supposed to be a two-day trip becomes an extended period of sightseeing and new experiences for Rin, and she encounters some new and old faces along the way. Season 2 continues the story of Rin, Nadeshiko, and their friends as they further explore the joys of camping.
TheAwersome’s Thoughts: If you liked the first season, you’ll like this season. We do get to spend a little more time with some of the supporting cast, and a few new characters join in on the fun. Since we aren’t spending as much time getting to know the characters, I feel like the camping trips themselves have a slower pacing than last season. Depending on your preference for pacing, that can either mean that this season drags more, or this season is that much comfier and easier to relax and immerse yourself into. There are some fresh new tracks in that blessed Peruvian/Celtic/Folk-banjo style of music, amazing food, scenery, and endearing comedy, making this an excellent show to unwind to.
TLDR: More comfiness like last season, with a bit more immersive pace.
A sequel movie is currently airing in Japan.
