Laid-Back Camp

Mar 9, 2018

Had someone told me that my top show of the Winter season would be a Cute girl's show, I would've told him that he's ridiculous, but here we are, Who would've thought that a show about cute girls doing absolutely nothing in the woods would be so great.

In a season filled with mostly generic Cute Girls Doing Cute Things shows, comes a show that managed to prove that if you throw a hundred one of them at the wall, something is bound to stick and that even with the most generic cast and boring premise, you can create something NOT boring, something really great. so just set back, relax, and gaze upon the gloriousness of the nothing ever happens. 

From a studio that made absolutely nothing of significance, comes the comfiest show in the whole freakin' season, a show that's well-produced to make for a great ride, featuring long segments of girls riding bikes as they traverse long distances through the beautiful wilderness, with some of the greatest scenery I've seen in a while, other long shots of them setting up their tents, step by step, and then showing them collecting wood for a campfire before starting it, and others showing them cooking their meals while a narrator explains all the steps, in what feels like a camping instructional video, before just sitting down and start eating or reading.

What makes the this show special is how it's focused on its themes of camping, as well as the girls' outdoor activity, rather than being an afterthought like other CGDCT shows which seem to focus on making the girls look cute, the show creates a great atmosphere which makes the experience very immersive, and a very soothing watch. the characters themselves are generic, but the great chemistry between them, as well as their activities which experience through them, makes them likable.

The artwork is brilliantly done to showcase the beauty of nature with some eye-catching backgrounds, most of which are based on real-life locations, accompany that with some relaxing and great music, and some simple and funny gags, the show manages to be a warm and cozy experience.

It's a peaceful Slice of Life show, and a great healing experience, though unless you're really into Slice of Life shows, you might find this show downright unwatchable, since the show is much more uneventful than a normal Slice of Life show, otherwise, it's one of the best to come to date, and is easily one of my favorite shows this year.
