Yuru Camp Specials – Hora Camp

Posted on by - 10 Replies


Sorry we’re like a whole season late! The second of Yuru Camp’s specials is here; please enjoy! Number three soonerish kind of!


Sobaudon returns. Go back to Episode 6’s Room Camp if you’ve forgotten what the joke is there.

The main note this episode is about the title, which is used throughout the episode. ‘Hora’ (法螺, but more commonly in kana) stems (probably) from the ‘horagai’ (法螺貝), the Japanese name of Charonia tritonis (‘Triton’s trumpet’). Big conch shell; makes a sound when you blow it. This trumpet-blowing evolved over time to mean telling tall tales, or exaggerating in general (it is, though, a bit different from ‘blowing one’s own horn’). Or rather, to blow the horn (ほらを吹く, ‘hora wo fuku’) is associated with that, while by extension the tales or stories themselves would be (roughly) the ‘hora’.

So ‘hora’ was translated as ‘bull’, ‘horafuku’ as ‘spouting bull’, etc. This bull (meaning nonsense or lies or whatever else; I’m sure you know) actually has a separate etymology from ‘bullshit’, though they’ve ended up meaning close to the same thing.

The ability to use ‘bull sisters’ (ほら吹き姉妹) is also a very fortunate coincidence.

    So is the “Ep 00” prequel the first special, and this is the second – do I have that right? (And where does this special fit into the timeline? Another prequel, mid-season, or sequel?) Much thanks for subbing the best ever anime about casual camping. >:-)

      We messed up a little bit and thought there was only the one special, so the numbering’s a bit off. Yes, Room Camp 00 is the first of three specials. This one, Hora Camp, is the second, and there’s a third, Saba Camp, as well, which we’ll hopefully get out soon.

      Hora Camp takes place at least after Episode 6, and probably it’s a safe guess that it’s post-season, but it’s not obvious like Room Camp 00 was.

    Thanks as always, Team Asenshi!
    Btw, if you don’t mind me asking, will you guys and Vivid still do the 14th Evergarden?
