The latest Laid-Back Camp work that was released was the Laid-Back Camp Movie, which was released in Japan back in July 2022. It currently does not have a western release. Crunchyroll streams the first two seasons of the TV anime, which adapts the manga of the same name by afro, describing the series 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.
