The "Outdoor Girls Story" manga has been serialized in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward since its
July 2015 issue, and the latest fourth tankobon volume is set to be released on July 12. It is set around Yamanashi
Prefecture and follows the two girls, Nadeshiko Kagamihara and Rin Shima who explores the joy of camping
and outdoor life, along with their friends at the outdoor activity circle at their high school.
The story begins on one day in winter. Nadeshiko is a high school girl who recently transferred from Shizuoka
to Yamanashi. She goes to Lake Motosu to see Mt.Fuji that is illustrated in the 1,000 yen bill by bicycle, but
the weather is cloudy and she can't see the mountain. Nadeshiko, who is so exhausted, falls asleep on the spot.
When she wakes up, it is already night. She has no idea where she is and the way back home. The girl who
saves Nedeshiko who is scared of loneliness is Rin, who loves one-person camping.
