Anime Spotlight - Non Non Biyori Repeat

by Anthony Foronda,
Broadcast Begins July 2015 (JST)


I can see everyone again, non?


There are only five students in Asahigaoka Branch School. Their graduating classes and personalities are all different, but they go look at flowers, they play in the river, they dig up potatoes, and build snow igloos... They are always together and enjoy a rural life where they can live with the changing of the four seasons. It's laid back and nothing is special, but it's funny, sometimes brings a tear, and is very heartwarming. Such a leisurely, kind time will begin again.
