In its first week, filmgoers for the Laid-Back Camp anime film in Japan had received a special 24-page volume 13.5 of the manga by original author Afro titled “Rin to Nadeshiko no Inagako Haru Camp“ (Rin and Nadeshiko’s Spring Camp at Inaga Lake). The new story ties Nadeshiko and Rin in high school with their adult selves from the film.
A commemorative album from the anime is included in the volume, as well as production material from the film.
The movie is a sequel to the Laid-Back Camp anime and it is described as:
Rin Shima left her hometown of Yamanashi, got a job at a small publishing company in Nagoya, and lived alone. One weekend, when she was planning a tour, her high school friend Chiaki Ogaki suddenly sent a message. “I’m in Nagoya now”.
Chiaki, who works for the Tourism Promotion Organization in Yamanashi, was in charge of the redevelopment plan for the facility that was closed a few years ago.
“If it’s such a large site, we can use it as a campsite.” Chiaki was moved from such a casual word from Rin.
Nadeshiko Kakamigahara working at an outdoor store in Tokyo, Aoi Inuyama who became an elementary school teacher in Yamanashi, and Ena Saito working at a trimming salon in Yokohama, former campsite friends gather and the campsite development plan starts.
