Yuru Camp Review: Casual camping for the soul

Rin is sleepy

I know this series aired a few seasons back, but it's probably one of my favorite shows of 2018. It's honestly a difficult series to talk about, since it's a slice of life series that I would call a "healing" series. That being said, I enjoyed a lot more than similar shows. The focus on camping alone adds a lot to the show, as it incorporates great shots of outdoor scenery as part of the package. It's too bad that it came out at the same time as Sora Yoori mo Tooi Basho, as the two shows were both heavily vying for my attention.

Nadeshiko is sleepy

The premise of the show isn't too complicated. The main character, Rin Shima, spends much of her free time camping in various scenic locations. On one such trip, she meets a transfer student, Nadeshiko Kagamihara, who readily joins her. As the series progresses, Rin starts to open herself up others who share her love of camping, while Nadeshiko learns more about the world of camping. It's a fun give and take.

Shot of the background

I know Nadeshiko gets a lot of attention for her energetic personality. That being said, it might not be a surprise that I identify more with Rin in this series. I'm prone to solo travels by default, but I can be coaxed to join a group when the opportunity arises. Sometimes, the freedom to go at your own pace can be relaxing, you know?

Stuck in bed with the dog

I'm a huge fan of how cell phones, in particular, are used in this series. From the start, it gives Rin a casual nudge into the group by connecting her to the rest of the characters even when she's off on her own. In addition to that aspect, the conversations between Ena and Rin in text messages introduce a level of comedy that I really liked.

Rin will turn the wood into rust

To be honest, the show captured my interest in the very first episode, and it was before Nadeshiko even showed up. Rin dramatically poses in front of the firewood, and the scene immediately cuts to a cute shot of her casually chopping into the wood. At that moment, I knew the comedic style of this series was pretty much exactly what I liked.

Overall Score: 8/10
