Non Non Biyori
Production: Silver Link
Director: Kawamo Shinya
Series Composition: Yoshida Reiko
Starring: Murawaka Rie, Sakura Ayane, Asumi Kana, Koiwai Kotori
Starts: October 7, 2013
Asahioka Branch School, a combined elementary and middle school in an isolated village, has only five students total, four girls and one boy. The girls are best friends, and pass the season with traditional activities like harvesting mountain herbs and fishing.
This is really a lovely and peaceful anime and the comedy was good in this first episode (especially when the Tanuki appeared).
Can't wait to see the next episode; oh, one last thing: Renge is freaking ADORABLE!!
Well, this type of comedy will go as far as its locomotive character goes, so, it all depends on Renge's shoulders from this point on. I liked the tanuki scene, as well as "is this the countryside" stuff. I liked the class setting, offsetting the otherwise stereotypical transfer student plot. Rotten floor scene was also good in that note.
Did not make me fall in love with just one episode, but did enough to make me keep watching it. It might have some peak moments in the future episodes, too.
This is the replacement for Kitakubu... I hope...
First episode was almost boring. :/
I will watch the second episode because the Tanuki and Ren-chan were really good. Best part of the episode was the rotten floor though.

Poor Koma-chan... Don't be mean to the cute girl!
Hotaru has a crush on her... So cute...
Second half was the best... Hotaru really looked like an adult while Koma looked like she was 11 or 12...
Renge made the first half pretty enjoyable so all in all... I'll continue to watch this.
Hotaru is so cute for having a crush on Komari, while Komari herself is so cute for being so small and thus obesessed on adulthood. XD
Another good episode and that class sure is cool in its own way. LOL
Renge is the most adorable characther in this show though; she can be a tough rival for Hotaru and Komari.
A competent fansub group finally picked this up, so now I'm watching. I'll probably always be behind, but no matter. A really nice, cute show. Episode one was very enjoyable. Ren-chon is epic!

The moment Renge cried, I was overwhelmed by a mixture cuteness and sadness. LOL
I'm loving this show and episode 4 was good.
I wish we could have more funny moments with Natsumi, Komari and Renge's "middle" sister. XD
Damn crying Ren-chan was hard to watch... I felt so sorry for her...
The show really got better and is more than just random stuff. Really liking it.
I want more Koma-chan. \o/

Oh god that episode was really good, meaning it was very funny. I really burst into tears after Ren-chon noticed the bug...
Poor Koma-chan though... I just want to hug her... She is such a cute girl. Fighto Lost-chan! o/

The bug scene was just epic. Her stare was what made Natsumi feel remorse and reflect on her action and for a moment, I was like, wow, what a mature silence for a grade schooler. Then we learn the real reason
Ren-chon lived up to the hype for me!
Ren-chon is the best character of the show. XD
The scene of the bug was simply awesome and let's say it, Natsumi really deserved it, after all she made Koma-chan eat that inedible thing.
As for Koma, she's really cute with her height complex and even though I feel sorry for her when she's struck by misfortune, I always laugh so hard watching her reactions. LOL
Really looking forward to watching the next episode.
The producer teased that he might be able to make a year end announcement about the anime and manga. Looks like Non Non Byori is popular. According to ANN all six volumes of the manga are getting large reprints that will arrive in stores later this month. ANN

This show is so mean to Koma-chan... Although I have to say it is over the top adorable how cute she is when she is scared...
Apart from that Ren-chon is the star of the show... Her commenst always make me laugh.
This show is really relaxing. Im glad that I didn't drop it after all.
