Afro’s Yuru Camp manga, also known as Laid-Back Camp, is getting its own live-action TV series. TV Tokyo made the announcement, with the channel broadcasting the show alongside TV Osaka and TV Aichi starting January 9, 2019. Amazon Prime will also be streaming the new series starting January 10.

TV Tokyo also announced the series’ main cast members, and they include Haruka Fukuhara as Rin Shima, Yuuno Ohara as Nadeshiko Kagamihara, Momoko Tanabe as Chiaki Oogaki, Yumena Yanai as Aoi Inuyama, and Sara Shida as Ena Saitou. The series itself will be having three directors in Takashi Ninomiya, Mamoru Koshino, and Kyouhei Tamazawa.

The manga received two TV anime adaptations, with the first season premiering in January 2018. Here’s how Crunchyroll descrines the anime’s story:

Nadeshiko, a high school student who had moved from Shizuoka to Yamanashi, decides to see the famous, 1000 yen-bill-featured Mount Fuji. Even though she manages to bike all the way to Motosu, she’s forced to turn back because of worsening weather. Unable to set her eyes on her goal, she faints partway to her destination. When she wakes up, it’s night, in a place she’s never been before, with no way of knowing how to get home. Nadeshiko is saved when she encounters Rin, a girl who is out camping by herself. This outdoorsy girls story begins with this first encounter between Nadeshiko and Rin.
