Yuru Campalso known as Relaxed camp, is a story created by Japanese manga artist Afro. Anime based on a manga series first appeared on the screen in 2018. Yuru Camp is a popular anime series in the segment of life genre. The anime, which came to the screens with a new season in early 2021, delighted its fans. C-station, which we haven’t seen much of in the anime industry, but has proven its quality with the Yuru Camp series, takes on the task of a creative studio. Originally broadcast on AT-X, Tokyo MX and many local networks, the anime is also licensed by crunchy rolls† After the second season finale aired on April 1, 2021, fans are now curious about the third season. So the anime will have a . to have third season† All the details we know so far…
What is Yuru Camp’s storyline?
The story of the anime is an ordinary story in the slice-of-life genre. But that’s not a drawback. Whatever the story is, it’s really well made. Shima Rin is a high school girl who likes to camp alone. One day, when she goes camping alone, she meets a girl named Kagamihara Nadeshiko, who has just moved to town and climbed the mountain where Rin camps to see the view of Mount Fuji. While the two have just met, Nadeshiko is impressed by Rin’s camp and wants to camp. So she joins the “Outdoor Club” at her new school. There are only two members in this club; Inuyama Aoi and Oogaki Chiaki. Thus, Nadeshiko embarks on camping activities with her new friends in her new city, which has become her new hobby.
Will there be a third season of Yuru Camp?
The second season of the anime aired between January 7, 2021 – April 4, 2021. The anime has just hit the screens and it is quite early to get news about the new season. As of July 5, 2021, C-Station studio or any other related company does not yet have a renewed the anime for one third season† It can take years to renew the anime. There’s about three years between the first and second season, so shall we wait another three years? The answer is complicated, but looking at the current popularity of anime, we think we could see a new season. There’s no official announcement yet, but we can speculate about the third season by looking at some key factors.
- March 27, 2021: A virtual reality game has been announced and will be released on October 30, 2021†
- May 21, 2021: Yuru Camp anime series gets an OVA episode. The episode airs on July 28, 2021† The OVA is titled ‘Tabi-suru Shima Rin’.
Manga status and stock material adequacy
As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, it is original manga was written and illustrated by Afro. Houbunsha is the publisher of the series. The manga, which began airing on Manga Time Kirara Forward in July 2015, was transferred to Comic Fuz in 2019. The good news is that the manga series is still ongoing, and at the time of writing, the final installment will be released on April 12. 2021. It means additional source material for future anime seasons.
12 volumes have been prepared for the manga so far. 4 volumes were adapted in the first season of the anime, and the second season covers 5 additional volumes up to the 9th volume. If the remaining resource is material, it is not enough for another season. An average of 2 volumes per year are released for manga. In the course of this year, 2 volumes have already been released, along with the volume in April. With the volumes coming out in 2022, it looks like source material for another season will be provided.
Disc sales and popularity
Disc sales and associated popularity are highly valued for new season approvals. Because anime also has commercial goals. In general, the goals are average 4,000 copy sales. When they exceed this sales figure, a new season is very likely if there is no problem with other factors. Yuru Camp Reached 12,507 copies in BluRay and DVD sales in the first season. That’s quite a few sales! Sales of discs for the second season have just started and we don’t have any clear data yet. But its current popularity holds great promise for disc sales. †Update on 23.04.2021: Sales of discs for the second season of the anime have surfaced. it’s old 6250 units in the first volume, and this sales volume seems to be enough for a third season.)
The current popularity rating of the anime is 83.2%. This score is sufficient for a new season. In addition, the anime is followed by 315 thousand people on Twitter (@yurucamp_anime† In general, it can be said that anime that reaches more than 100 thousand users is quite popular. It seems that the producers will be able to take advantage of the possible third season. In terms of popularity, there seems to be no problem for a new season.
Virtual reality game is coming
Another news that increases the chances of season 3 is the new game news. The game, ‘Laid-Back Camp Virtual’, which will be released worldwide on September 30, 2021, will take place on many platforms. (Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android). Usually the game news is an important signal for the new season of anime.
When is the third season release date?
A third season of the anime has not yet been confirmed. The anime is the most valuable product in the hand of C-Station. Looking at its current popularity, we don’t think anyone will say no to a new season. However, the manga does not yet provide enough source material for a third season. The stock material for a new season seems to be ready in 2022. Given the time it takes to produce the anime, we won’t be able to see the third season until 2023. Until then, we highly recommend the beloved slice-of-life anime series Kono Oto Tomare!: Sounds of Life and Chihayafuru such as Yuru Camp.
