Laid Back Camp is a very relaxing anime. Someone had the bright idea to turn the comfiest anime and manga series around and turn it into a video game. Laid Back Camp: Have A Nice Day is an upcoming visual novel-style game coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch later this year in Japan, with a launch date set for November 11 (The same day as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition! Tough decision.). Anyway, the opening movie for the game has just been released and it’s bringing all those comfy vibes right back.
The opening movie features a new original song called “See the Light” by Asuka, the music artist behind the openings for both seasons of the Laid Back Camp anime show. Hopefully, we can get something from Eri Sakaki, who performed both the ending songs for the Laid Back Camp anime.
Unfortunately, there’s been no confirmation that the game will make its way to the West, which isn’t surprising. After all, there are tons of anime games, let alone games in general, that stay Japan-exclusive because there isn’t that demand over here like there would be over there. But one person is writing this article that would like to see an English translation for Laid Back Camp: Have A Nice Day (hopefully someone with better Japanese language skills than I could get around to that). Another game bears the Laid Back Camp name – the VR Laid Back Camp Virtual Campsite spaces.
Laid Back Camp (original Japanese name Yuru Camp) originated from a manga by Afro, which then got turned into a successful anime series that streamed on Crunchyroll and Japanese TV. Laid Back Camp Season 2 recently finished airing – check out our review here! (Hint: it’s really good)
What do you think of that opening movie for Laid Back Camp: Have A Nice Day? Does it bring back that comfy feeling you may/may not have gotten from watching the original Laid Back Camp show or reading the Laid Back Camp manga?
