Yuru Camp focuses on a group of high school girls from Yamanashi Prefecture, an area not all that far from the bustling metropolis of Tokyo, who enjoy the outdoor pastime of camping. This immediately sets it apart from many slice of life shows. Most slice of life shows are often set in an urban box, with characters playing out the usual set of antics and adventures, and are occassionally inspired by many other anime that affect the pop culture. By having Yuru Camp set in the great outdoors it frees the all-female cast from the tired tropes and trappings that plague the genre, allowing them to better convey a sense of character and personality.
Colour & Clothing
Since the show focuses on normal everyday girls going about their everyday lives you won’t see anyone that clearly looks like an anime protagonist in the cast. One might assume this means that the characters are bland and boring. Really, this is far from it. The cast of Yuru Camp cycle through brilliantly colourful attire constantly. Since the show is set in the fall and winter the girls wear a gamut of styles to keep themselves warm: comfortable sweaters, winter parkas with fleece and toque combos (Canada style), each character has their own unique sense of distinguishing style.
