Go To
Welcome to the Outdoors Club!

"The stars spread out. Light flows.
Once our hearts are embraced by the gentle scenery…
Let's put out the lights and fall asleep side by side
As we talk about the simplest things."
— "Fuyu Biyori" by Eri Sasaki (the first season's ending theme)

Rin Shima is fond of camping alone and frequently visits campsites that allow her to take in views of Mount Fuji. She encounters Nadeshiko Kagamihara during one of her camping trips: Nadeshiko had recently moved to the area and longed to see Mount Fuji. To this end, she cycles to find a viewpoint from which she can enjoy Mount Fuji's majesty. After this happenstance encounter, Nadeshiko takes an interest in camping and joins her school's Outdoor Activities Club, where she meets Chiaki Oogaki and Aoi Inuyama, as well as Ena Saitou, Rin's friend. Sometimes camping alone and sometimes camping together, the girls begin sharing in their camping trips and experiences to enjoy some truly unique moments in the wilderness surrounding Mount Fuji.

Laid-Back Camp (Yurucamp△, or ゆるキャン△) is a manga that is written and illustrated by Afro, who previously worked on Puella Magi Homura Tamura, and has been serialized in Manga Time Kirara Forward since July 2015. The manga has been licensed in North America by Yen Press. An anime adaptation, produced by C-Station, began airing in January 2018, and episodes are available for watching at Crunchyroll. Besides the twelve episodes, there are also three OVAs that show the girls' time spent together outside of their camping trips. A shorts series Room Camp (Heya Camp, or へやキャン△) and a Japanese Live-Action Adaptation dorama series both aired in January 2020. A second season aired in January 2021, and an animated movie released in Japan in mid-2022. On October 22, 2022, it was announced that Season 3 of the anime was in production on their Twitter account. In July 2023, it was confirmed for a 2024 release, with 8 Bit taking over from C-Station as the animation studio [1] It is set to air in April 2024.

Notably, the author's other manga Mono also takes place in the same universe as this manga.

Laid-Back Camp provides examples of:

  • 2D Visuals, 3D Effects: Vehicles are sometimes animated this way in the anime, often when they go around winding roads, from various automobiles to Rin on her scooter. Minami's car in the second season is animated traditionally despite all the drifting it does.
  • Ace Custom: Downplayed example with Rin's Yamaho Vino. Her grandfather helps install a windscreen to help with the cold breezes, and a holder for her phone so she can use a navigation app to get around.
  • Adventurous Irish Violins: Irish fiddles provide some of the motifs in the anime's soundtrack, which puts emphasis on exploring the majesty and splendor of the outdoors.
    • Art Evolution: As a result of changing studios between seasons, Season 3 of the anime takes some significant shifts in art direction. Character designs overall are closer to that of the manga's art style, and the show gains a much more robust compositing system that makes the atmosphere more pronounced.
  • Art Shift: The characters periodically shift into Super-Deformed designs similar to their phone avatars, usually whenever they're acting particularly smug or goofy. Rin has it happen to her the most frequently.
  • Badass Biker: Rin's mother used to be one when she was younger. She balks at showing Rin pictures of her past as a motorcycle rider, and in The Stinger of "Winter's End and the Day of Departure" she blushes at the photos while thinking to herself, "I can't show her these". The end card shows one of them: Rin's mother straddling a motorcycle in boots and a leather jacket, her untamed hair sticking up, flashing a thumbs up at the camera.
  • Bait-and-Switch: In "Camping Alone", Sakura goes to the grocers and has to choose between deer meat and bears' paws. She Googles how to prepare bears' paws, and the show starts one of its folksy interludes where the narrator explains some off-beat dish to the audience. When she realises it takes nine hours and requires meticulously plucking every single hair off the paw, the quaint soundtrack warps into a dissonant wail and the narrator's voice speeds up until he squeaks like a chipmunk. It cuts to Sakura just asking for deer meat.
  • Bait-and-Switch Comment: In Volume 14, the members of the OEC begin to despair, worrying that they've failed to attract any new first-years despite their efforts, such as baking a pizza. Two girls come over and say that the pizza was so good they were inspired... to join the cooking club.
  • Beach Episode: The OVA released for the third BD volume had Nadeshiko and the others stranded on a tropical island, where they make use of the island's resources to survive and have a camping trip of sorts here.
  • Big Ball of Violence:
    • Chiaki, Aoi, and Nadeshiko have a very short-lived, but dusty fight while debating what Christmas gifts to get another one after Aoi suggests that the high-grade meat she's bringing along can be considered her gift to the others.
    • In episode nine of the first season, Chiaki and Nadeshiko spar via Pop-Up Texting over what Rin should have for lunch when the latter stops at a hot spring en route to the campsite, and in the aftermath, their avatars have Instant Bandages.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows:
    • Aoi's eyebrows are very prominent compared to the other characters.
    • Afro seems to have fallen in love with this trope at some point, because new club member Mei and her friend Ema also sport huge eyebrows.
  • Bland-Name Product:
    • Nadeshiko attempts to purchase Orio sandwich cookies in the fourth episode of the first season, with the Nabisco triangle visible on the packaging.
    • The Zebra supermarket that Rin and Nadeshiko visited in the sixth episode of the first season is based on the Selva Food Garden store in Minobu.
    • The Caribou store that Nadeshiko, Aoi and Chikai visit in episode eight of the first season is based on a Casa-SVEN store from Hamamatsu.
    • The lantern that Nadeshiko lights in Caribou is made by Goalman (Coleman).
    • The third season of the anime introduces us to Gurgle Maps, and WeTube.
  • Book Ends: The first season of the anime opens with Rin cycling up to Koan Campground and setting up her gear before settling down, and concludes with Nadeshiko biking along the same route, setting up similar gear and settling down the same way Rin had.
  • Break Out the Museum Piece: In The Movie, Rin's Thruxton suffers a Check Engine warning, so she has to rely on her old motor scooter to guide all the lost campers to the newly opened campground.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall:
    • The girls appear to be able to hear the narrator's commentary while they prepare their camping implements. In episode seven of the first season, the narrator remarks that tents with a short set-up time are pricier, and Nadeshiko's mood sours with this knowledge.
    • Smashed to pieces in episode seven of the third season, as Chiaki, Ena, and Aoi relate the story of their camping trip to Nadeshiko. First Aoi insists on adding Chikuwa to the story because he wanted to come along but it was too cold to bring him. Next they force Nadeshiko climb into the screen insert when she keeps interrupting their story, and complain about her grumbling stomach interrupting one of their meals. Then Chikuwa starts talking...
      Nadeshiko: Hang on. What's up with the wibbly-wobbly backgrounds I'm seeing sometimes?
      Chiaki: We were so caught up in our conversation we don't remember the details.
  • Brick Joke: In episode eight of the first season, Nadeshiko shares a photograph of a strange-looking vehicle on her way back home from school with her friends. This turns out to have been a Google Street View camera car, and in the episode's post-credits, Rin finds a surprised Nadeshiko standing at the intersection.
  • Chekhov's Gun: In the movie, the playground equipment at the elementary school Aoi was working at is repurposed for the new campground after the school closes.
  • Chekhov's Gunman:
    • The elderly gentleman Chiaki runs into while scouting a camp area during the sixth episode of the first season turns out to be Rin's grandfather. Her mother ends up calling him, and mentions that his love of camping was passed onto Rin.
    • Rin and Nadeshiko run into two campers, an intoxicated lady and her partner who helped them to start fire for their grill. The former is Minami Toba, a new instructor at Nadeshiko and the others' high school who becomes the Outdoor Activities Club's advisor, while the latter is later revealed to be her sister.
  • Club Stub:
    • The Outdoor Activities Club is assigned a small clubroom because Chiaki and Aoi are its only two members. Their status also limits their funding, but the two are unconcerned with the arrangements; they reason that they don't spend much time in their clubroom, and later take on part-time jobs to provide the money for their activities.
    • In chapter 80, first year Mei Nakatsugawa joins and the OutClub finally have enough members to become an official club. It's enough to make Chiaki weep tears of joy.
  • Cool Big Sis: Invoked. In chapter 81, when the Outdoor Activity Club finally gets a new member, Mei, Nadeshiko affects a sly smile and a casual posture and speaks in an excessively formal tone to impress their new recruit. Chiaki then tells her to "stop it with the capable senpai act".
  • Couch Gag: In season two's opening, whenever Rin swipes through the pictures on her phone, they show images of whatever happened in the previous episode.
  • Cranial Eruption: In the first episode of the first season, Sakura strikes Nadeshiko for having left her cell phone behind and getting lost, resulting in three lumps stacked on top of each other.
  • Darkest Hour: For a lighter shade of "darkest." Midway through The Movie, all the work the girls have put into rehabilitating the campground seem to have come to naught, as an archeological discovery puts a halt to their plans. Fortunately Chiaka puts together a new usage plan to be presented to the prefecture council, folding in the campground with a cultural center to showcase the archeological dig.
  • A Day in the Limelight: The fourth episode of Room Camp switches the focus from the Outdoor Activities Club to Rin, describing a Saturday when she does not camp.
  • Diegetic Soundtrack Usage: In episode three of the first season, the anime's ending theme is played on the radio. Rin and Nadeshiko listen to it over a music stream via smartphone.
  • Diegetic Switch: Rin and Nadeshiko listen to the ending song on a cell phone while camping.
  • Distant Finale: In the first season finale, Nadeshiko imagines camping together with everyone again after ten years have elapsed.
  • Edutainment Show: While the series mainly focuses on the characters enjoying themselves while camping, it also provides detailed explanations and advice on camping implements and the equipment involved for new campers.
  • The Ending Changes Everything: The Room Camp series of anime shorts involves Nadeshiko going on the Yamanashi Stamp Rally with Aoi and Aki. In the last episode, it turns out that the rally was something that the other girls made up.
  • Energetic and Soft-Spoken Duo: Nadeshiko is an excitable Genki Girl who often shouts, while the taciturn Rin is much quieter and more reserved.
  • Evolving Credits:
    • Rin's gradual warming up to Nadeshiko can be seen in the first season's opening credits, through her messages with Nadeshiko. From episodes one to seven, Rin's reply is "No". Episode eight to eleven has her respond "I'll consider it", and in the finale, she answers, "sure".
    • In Room Camp, the credits show the stamp book with all the current stamps (and after Nadeshiko briefly loses it, the notebook she uses to collect the stamps).
  • Eye Pop: When Rin sees the price of the top-grade meal at the eel restaurant she and Nadeshiko go to in Hamamatsu (4000 yen each), she's so shocked that her eyes fall right off her face.
  • Family Theme Naming: The Kagamihara sisters are both named after flowers.
  • Fancy Camping: In one of the manga omakes, the girls discuss the merits of camping with more creature comforts. Chiaki vehemently decries the idea, seeing it as a diminished form of camping, but then remarks that if she could afford it, she'd do it every weekend.
  • Food Porn: From grilling meat over a portable stove, to onsen fried eggs, nabe and campfire curry, food in is rendered with great detail. The food evidently tastes as good as it looks, given the characters' enjoyment of their meals. Lampshaded in Season 3, Episode 8 which is literally titled "The Food Porn Begins!"
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Nadeshiko is an energetic ditz, while her sister Sakura is a taciturn Cool Big Sis.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • In the very first episode, Nadeshiko's sister scolds her for the harebrained idea of going to a camping site to watch Mount Fuji in a winter night without her phone or any equipment other than her bicycle despite the distance involved, calling her a "dump pig" as she throws her into the car. Much later on, in the third episode of season two, it's revealed that Nadeshiko used to be overweight and that she got into shape before entering high school thanks to her sister's Tough Love forcing her to do laps around Lake Hamana (about 50 km per lap) on her bicycle while she followed on her scooter, which resulted in Nadeshiko's ridiculous stamina during the series.
    • In the Room Camp anime shorts, there's a bit of foreshadowing regarding the ending.
      • Aki and Aoi always find the stamp stations before Nadeshiko does, and in the third episode, they discourage Nadeshiko from going on ahead to get to the stamp station. One would assume that it's because they know the area better, but they actually have to hurry ahead and set up the stamps. Unbeknownst to them, Nadeshiko actually caught them in the act, but went along with it.
      • Episode eight shows that Aoi sometimes enjoys making up stories for the fun of it. She and Aki made up the story about the stamp rally.
  • Gossip Evolution: In chapter 80, the Outdoors Club bake delicious pizza out on the school grounds to attract new club members. And they do attract new club members ... for the culinary research club, thanks to a big game of telephone where the student body as a whole can't figure out what club they were representing.
  • Harsh Word Impact: Yen signs stab into Nadeshiko when she reads about the price of higher-end camping gear.
  • How We Got Here: The first episode of the anime's first season opens with the main characters roasting marshmallows over a campfire. It turns out this is a part of their Christmas camping trip, as seen in episodes eleven and twelve.
  • Human Mail: The Outdoor Exploration Club girls attempt to devise an inexpensive means of insulating their sleeping bags for winter camping. After layering several methods including bubble wrap and a cardboard box, Chiaki (the one who's in the bag) wonders "Am I being shipped somewhere?"
  • Idiot Ball: In episode ten of the first season, experienced camper Rin fails to anchor her tent to the ground in high winds just so the narrator can lecture the audience on how important it is, over scenes of Rin chasing her flyaway camp gear.
  • Improbable Hairstyle: Ena is skilled at styling hair into a variety of objects including a bear's head, a pagoda and saguaro cactus.
  • In Medias Res: The anime opens with all the girls camping together and transitions to the events that lead Nadeshiko and Rin to meet.
  • Irony: After Rin tells Nadeshiko of a spectral bull that is rumoured to appear by nightfall at Lake Shibire, she follows up by reassuring Nadeshiko that nothing of the sort will appear. However, when Rin returns from the facilities later that night, she runs into what looks to be the bull and bolts in terror; she ends up spending the evening sleeping in Nadeshiko's tent, and the "ghost" turns out to be the drunken lady they met earlier, who was having a Vomit Discretion Shot at the time.
  • Iyashikei: The combination of wilderness adventures and friendship create an immensely cathartic atmosphere.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: Both Nadeshiko and Rin are surprised to learn that Minami's partner at Lake Shibire was her sister, and she admits that with the way her sister acts, it's not hard to make that mistake.
  • Literal-Minded: In "What Are You Buying With Your Temp Job Money?", Ena asks Rin what she'd do with a hundred million yen. Rin's answer? Camp on top of it.
  • Location Theme Naming: All characters' surnames are based off the names of Japanese cities, and this is briefly mentioned in episode ten of the first season.
  • Loophole Abuse: When camping at Lake Shibire, Toba's sister worries about the likelihood of Toba drinking beer during lunchtime. Toba considers drinking non-alcoholic beer at school instead, but her sister retorts that it's still unacceptable.
  • Lost in Translation: Both Yen Press and Crunchyroll gives Chiaki's Outdoors Activity group as a "Club", but it was originally a "Circle", as it had not satisfied the school's requirements to be a club.
  • Lucky Charms Title: The delta symbol at the end of the title is a tent, and it is retained in the cover of Yen Press's translation as the "a" in "Camp."
  • Mood Whiplash: Chiaki, Aoi and Ena realise that what was originally a relaxing camping trip could turn into a survival ordeal, since they'd not adequately prepared for the colder conditions at Lake Yamanaka.
  • Motorcycle on the Coast Road: Rin's trip into Shizuoka has her travelling along a coastal road, and while she greatly enjoys the scenery, she finds the wind to be very cold.
  • My Hovercraft Is Full of Eels: In the tenth episode of the first season, Nadeshiko exclaims in Engrish, "One for all, hole in one!"
  • New Year Has Come: The first episodes of the second season are about the cast's new year activities: Rin camps along the southern coast of Shizuoka, right south of Yamanashi, while the rest of the cast visits the temple (which is most likely the important Kuon-ji right there in Minobu) in the midnight of New Years, and then attempted to see the "Diamond Fuji." After that, Rin and Nadeshiko meet at the latter's hometown in the Mikkabi area of Hamamatsu.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • In the first episode of the first season, Nadeshiko wakes up after dark after falling asleep near a camp bathroom for a catnap after biking over 30 km from home without her cell phone or having told anyone in her family exactly where she went. Her first meeting with Rin was while she was in total panic mode.
    • In episode nine first season, Chiaki decides to cook houto noodles for Nadeshiko, who had a cold. When her parents show up and ask Chiaki to cook for them an authentic Yamanashi houto, the pressure on Chiaki becomes visible in her expression.
    • When Rin oversleeps at the restaurant on her way to her campsite, she is shocked that it's late enough that the sun has set.
    • When Nadeshiko tells Rin at Hamamatsu that they're having eel for lunch, Rin is in constant shock for awhile, since she certainly doesn't have the money to pay for it. Turns out that lunch is on Nadeshiko's family.
    • On the opening day of the new campground, there's a collective Oh, Crap as they realize they forgot to put up signs directing visitors where to find it.
  • Old School Building: Partway through The Movie, the elementary school Aoi is teaching at becomes this as it closes permanently at the end of the school year. note 
  • One-Steve Limit: Defied. The series has Ena (Rin's best friend and confidante) and Ema (Mei's best friend and confidante).
  • Only Six Faces: Visually, Mei looks a lot like Aoi except with her bangs flipped, so Afro gives Mei a giant bow to make her stand out.
  • Only in America: In chapter 83, when Chiaki and Toba-sensei are watching foreign dramas, Chiaki reacts with shock at how often American convenience store workers are robbed and shot. Toba-sensei remarks that it's just a trope.
  • Out of Focus: When Nadeshiko gets a job in a sushi restaurant mid-season two, she pretty much disappears while Chiaki, Aoi, and Ena go camping together. Once that arc is over, Aki and Aoi are reduced to non-speaking cameos while Nadeshiko goes solo camping for the next few episodes.
  • Pictorial Letter Substitution: The Japanese title is Yurucamp△, using the upper-case delta to represent a tent. This is somehow retained in the English translation, as the covers always replace the "a" in "Camp" with the same delta, as Laid-Back C△mp.
  • Pixellation: In chapter 83, Chiaki and Toba-sensei discuss why non-alcoholic booze can't be sold to people under the legal drinking age. Toba-sensei says it's to discourage young people from wanting to drink the real thing. Chiaki then pictures a drunken, happy Toba-sensei censored by pixellation, and wonders if they'll need to start censoring her so kids don't think drinking booze looks fun.
  • Pop-Up Texting: The girls' communiques are frequently shown on-screen. In their messages, the girls share their pictures, conversations and experiences as high school girls are wont.
  • Product Placement: Kikyo Shingen Mochi, discussed in the S1E02's Stinger, is considered one of the most well-known gifts from Yamanashi. However, that name is a registered trademark, with the trademark owner Kikyoya showing up in that episode's credits.
  • Puni Plush: The art style is very rounded. The best indicator is in volume five, when Nadeshiko's Childhood Friend Ayano showed Rin some photos back when Nadeshiko was fat. To the reader she wasn't that much fatter that how she currently is, the shock from Rin notwithstanding.
  • Putting the Band Back Together: Part of the plot of The Movie is Chaiki persuading the other members of the camping club to help her rehabilitate an abandoned piece of property into a new campground.
  • Real-Place Background: The series is set in and around the Minobu area of Yamanashi, and the camps the girls visit are real-world locations.
  • Retool: Parodied in chapter 80. After Aoi becomes obsessed with mountain biking and ropes a first year named Mei who is also obsessed with mountain biking into joining the OutClub, she and Chiaki have a skit about changing the premise of the manga into the Outdoor Cycling Club. Although they're only playing around, given the emphasis the manga starts placing on bicycling around that point in its run, it may not end up being merely a joke.
  • Sailor Fuku: The main characters' school uses sailor fuku for the girls' uniform, though it includes a yellow sweater that's worn over it.
  • Scenery Porn: The landscapes surrounding Mount Fuji are intricately and beautifully rendered, bringing the natural surroundings that Rin and her friends frequent to life.
  • Schoolgirl Series: Laid-Back Camp follows in the adventures of Rin and her friends both in the wilderness, as well as their everyday lives as high school students.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Chiaki thinks to herself how the Cool Old Guy camper she meets (who later turns out to be Rin's grandfather) "looks straight out of a coffee commercial"; she refers to Tommy Lee Jones's series of Japandering coffee commercials from the 1990s.
    • When Chiaki explains what outdoor film viewing is, the familiar faces of Marty McFly and Doc Brown appear in the film shown.
    • The "Blankie Monster" Running Gag is a nod to Kamen Rider's Showa era; the phrase Rin uses ("There you are, Blanket Monster!") would commonly be used by Riders when they encountered the Monster of the Week, while "Secret Society BLANKET" is a play on Shocker, the Nebulous Evil Organisation from the original 1971 TV series.
    • When the Outdoor Activities Club girls buy color-coded sleeping bags, they give themselves Super Sentai-style code-names, such as the "Mushroom Rangers" and "Santaclangers". There's also a brief shot of some "Mushroom Rangers" in the ninth episode of the first season.
    • In manga's tenth volume, Nadeshiko is shown performing Dhalsim's Yoga Flame, complete with the button combination, in a between-chapter illustration.
    • When the Outdoor Activity Club is practicing laying out a tarp during the fourth episode of the second season, Chiaki notifies Nadeshiko and Aoi that she forgot the tarp poles at home. Immediately a spoof of the NHK's sign-off phrase appears on the screen.
    • During Rin's dream where she can hear the pine cones and kindling screaming as she lights them, one of them says "Hidebu!".
    • In "Izu Camping!! On the Way", Akari suggests watching Zombie Gurashi, a riff on fellow Manga Time Kirara Forward title Gakkou Gurashi. The one shot we see looks an awful lot like Miki Naoki walking down a school hallway, bathed in sunset.
    • When Nadeshiko suggests they play "moon landing" in humanoid sleeping bags, the Imagine Spot shows a rocket landing on the Moon just like in A Trip to the Moon and music resembling the opening theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
    • In chapter 83, Toba-sensei says her #1 foreign drama is The Dentalist.
  • Slice of Life: Laid-Back Camp divides its time between Rin's excursions into the mountains and the Outdoors Activity Club's experiences, focusing on the girls as they make the most of their travels.
  • Snowed-In: Inverted in the new year's arc. Rin isn't planning to visit Hamamatsu, but it snowed in Minobu over New Year's while she's camping in the Shizuoka seafront, causing the mountain roads to her house too dangerous to be negotiated by her moped. This means, Rin was snowed-out of her house.
  • Start My Own: The Outdoor Activities Club was born of Chiaki and Aoi's desire to experience the outdoors at a much more relaxed pace than the athletically-focused Hiking Club.
  • The Stinger:
    • In the first season, the "Room Camp" segments after anime's ending sequence are light-hearted humor about the cast, adapted from the manga's bonus materials.
    • After the ending sequence of the fourth episode of the second season, Sakura leaves for her car early in the morning, only to find Nadeshiko put a fuel hand warmer on the car, bought with the latter's first paycheck.
  • Super-Deformed: The cast is drawn in this style when they appear as smartphone app avatars.
  • Suspicious Missed Messages: Downplayed when Nadeshiko goes on her first solo camping trip. When Nadeshiko stops answering her text messages, Rin cannot stop worrying about her, and goes out of her way to check on her friend...only to discover that Nadeshiko's older sister Sakura had the same idea. While Rin and Sakura's fears aren't completely unfounded (Nadeshiko can careless) she was never in danger and her lack of communication really is due to the poor reception in the mountains.
  • Time Skip: The Movie is set an unspecified number of years after the end of the series. It's long enough for all the former members of the club to have graduated high school and started adult jobs.
  • Title Drop: Room Camp #46 (published in Volume Six) has Chiaki bring up the subject of low-stress camping, AKA "laid-back camp". Aoi responds "I feel like I've heard that somewhere before..."
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Instant Curry Ramen for the characters of the show.
  • Two Lines, No Waiting: The fourth and fifth episodes of the first season (corresponding with chapters six to eight of the manga) sees Rin and the Outdoors Activity Club camping at different locations. They keep in touch by means of text messages and share their experiences with one another.
  • The 'Verse: The author has another series about an university photography club, Mono, that is set in the same universe as this series. For example, the Kagamigahara family won a Mega Meal Challenge in that series.
  • Whole Episode Flashback: The first half of the second season's first episode is primarily dedicated to showing the very first time Rin went camping. It ends on showing Nadeshiko during her time biking to lose weight, transitioning to the present day while she's riding.
  • World of Technicolor Hair: While some characters have realistic hair colors, others have unusual colors that no one ever comments on; Nadeshiko has pink hair, Rin has blue hair, and Sakura and Chiaki both have purple hair.
  • You Never Asked: Rin's mother pulls this excuse in the second season's ninth episode, after Rin complains she was never told her mother used to ride a motorcycle.
  • You No Take Candle: Invoked with Japanese in season three, episode seven as Chiaki, Aoi, and Ena are grocery shopping and find a package of garlic preserved in "syoy" sauce.

When camping...

Always mind the campsite and facility rules. Don't forget to take care of fires and your trash!
It gets cold during the winter. Stay warm and be well prepared!
