The comfy film opened on July 1 in Japan
The shikishi giveaways continue for the Laid-Back Camp: Movie, with the third-week theatrical gifts being announced today to contain one of three new shikishi drawn by series character designer Mutsumi Sasaki given out at random to film-goers in Japan starting July 15 until either July 21 or until stocks last.
At random, one can get a shikishi of adult Rin smiling while holding a full-face bike helmet, adult Ena as an animal groomer, or Chikuwa surrounded by a cornucopia of cute critters. Sample images of each image were released.
The Laid-Back Camp anime film will continue the stories seen in the two TV anime series, which are streaming right here on Crunchyroll. The cast and staff from the TV anime will return for the film under the watchful eye of the original creator Afro and premiered in Japanese theaters on July 1. Crunchyroll describes the TV anime as such:
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.
