If heaven exists, this probably is it.



The story takes place in the small countryside village of Asahigaoka, a place lacking many of the conveniences that people from the city are accustomed to. Ichijo Hotaru, a fifth grader from Tokyo, transfers into Asahigaoka Branch School, that consists of of only five students, the teacher's little sister Renge (aged 6), sisters Natsumi and Komari (ages 13 & 14), and their older brother Surugu (aged 15), each attending a different grade of elementary and middle school.

With some help from her new-found friends, Hotaru begins to adjust to life in the countryside. Sounds pretty simple for a slice of life anime, right? Maybe so, but it's the scenery porn and the weapons-grade Iyashikei that seems to have made it a hit.

Between the comfy OST and the scenery porn, it sure is one hell of a relaxing show. The series’ highlights remain the same such as the beautiful country landscape and the show’s token emphasis on taking the time to show viewers how beautiful the country can be during sunrise, sunset and nightfall.

Some have theorized that Asahigaoka is a 'evil parallel universe' of Silent Hill or even Hinamizawa of Higurashi: (When They Cry) fame – that it's a place that turns people good to the point the locals don't even lock their doors at night.

There are two seasons out so far – each at 12 episodes and one OVA; and it's mostly built around events that transpire. In fact, the episode titles read like one of the girls' diary entries.

While season 1 has some pacing issues, season 2 – titled 'repeat', does away with the slower bits. However, viewers should note that this season 2 is actually an interquel of the first season, giving the viewer more insights to the happenings of the first season and some more backstory to places and things. Watching S2's last episode is when you notice the definite connection; picking off where S1's episode ended for a special treat.

Art & Animation: Dear god, the CGs on the vehicles! This is XXX-rated scenery porn!

Voiceacting: You'll probably start to recognize the characters by their voices soon enough. A little bland at times, but they do an an excellent job of getting the message across.

Music: Superb and mood fitting. I even bought the actual OST cds.

Final Words: I looked up Akiya and found some great bargains. THIS is how you do marketing.

Thankfully, the manga is still ongoing, and if you want MOAR Non Non Biyori, you won't regret getting/reading the manga.

YOU may have! But some of us needed to google shit.

Also I'll give this a try but generally not a fan of slice-of-life anime, particularly ones that involve a group of underage schoolgirls.

What can I say, I got so perverted, that my brain suffered a 'integer overflow' and now I enjoy cute girls doing cute things.
