Non Non Biyori Manga Gets New Original Anime DVD

Atto's 10th manga volume to bundle OAD on September 23

The "Nyanpasu Matsuri Repeat na Non" event for the Non Non Biyori television anime announced on Sunday that a new original anime DVD (OAD) has been green-lit. The OAD will ship in a special edition for the 10th volume of Atto's original Non Non Biyori manga on September 23.

The manga takes place in the countryside, where the nearest bookstore is 20 minutes away by bicycle, a certain "Ju_p" magazine comes out on Wednesdays instead of Mondays, and the video rental store is 10 stations away. Hotaru Ichijō transfers from Tokyo to this school and readjusts to the slow life in the country. Her fellow schoolmates are Natsumi, Komari, Renge, and Komari's big brother Suguru in the third year of middle school.

The manga already inspired two television seasons (in 2013 and 2015) and an earlier original anime DVD. The first television series from director Shinya Kawatsura and anime studio SILVER LINK (WATAMOTE, Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) premiered last year. Crunchyroll streamed both television seasons as they aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed both for North American digital and home video release.
