The TV anime adaptation of the manga Yurucamp (Laid-Back Camp) by Afro revealed more cast info. The series will go on air in January 2018.
Yurucamp starts with the meeting between first-time camper Nadeshiko Kagamihara, and Rin Shima, who loves going camping by herself. It is an outdoorsy girls story. The three newly-announced cast members are the president of the Outdoor Activities Circle, Chiaki Oogaki (Sayuri Hara); the member who speaks in Kansai dialect, Aoi Inuyama (Aki Toyosaki); and Ena Saitou (Rie Takahashi), Rin’s friend.
Yumiri Hanamori (Nadeshiko Kagamihara) comment
‘I will be playing Nadeshiko Kagamihara in the anime Yurucamp!! I am beside myself with excitement at playing Nadeshiko, an innocent, straightforward girl who indulges herself in the wonders of camp! I will try my best to fully express the charms of both camp and Nadeshiko herself. Please look forward to the broadcast!’
Nao Toyama (Rin Shima) comment
‘I want to try camping!! When you think of camping, you think of summer and having a good time barbecuing with your friends, but through this work, I discovered the charm in quietly sipping hot soup while enjoying the cold wintery air as well. I want to show you all the cuteness of Rin Shima who appears quiet at first glance but is an aggressive solo camper!
When you watch the anime, you will want to go camping with your friends!’
Sayuri Hara (Chiaki Oogaki) comment
‘Even if you have no money, your room is tiny, its a cold winter; whether you’re alone or with everyone else… Camp is fun!
That’s what this work made me feel. Chiaki has fun powering on as the head of the Outdoor Activities Circle, so I joined in on her energy when I first read the manga and I thought “I don’t know anything about it, but I want to try camping!” I would like to convey that emotion to everyone who watches the anime.’
Aki Toyosaki (Aoi Inuyama) comment
‘I am very glad to be involved with Yurucamp! Personally, on holidays I enjoy going camping and mountain climbing,
so I want to use my outdoors experience and have fun acting. I will work hard to properly express the cute and beloved Inuko in the anime. Yurucamp is an anime that will allow you experience the vastness of nature and the delicious open air. Please treat us well!’
Rie Takahashi (Ena Saitou) comment
‘Even if I didn’t become involved with this anime adaptation, from the time I first read Yurucamp I thought “If it’s like this, I want to go camping.” I was captured by the manga’s charm. In the midst of that, when I got the call that I had gotten the part, I was so excited to find out what kind of view I would be able to see! As Saitou, I want to make it a work that is free and at her own pace!
