Non Non Biyori Vacation Anime Film Gets Wider Release in Japan

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

The official website for Non Non Biyori Vacation, the anime film of Atto's Non Non Biyori manga, revealed on Saturday that the film is getting a wider release in Japan. The film is now planned to eventually open in 71 theaters in 41 prefectures. The film originally opened on August 25 in Japan in 27 theaters.

The film topped the mini-theater rankings chart in Japan in its first two weekends at the box office.

The main cast and staff returned from the previous two television anime seasons for the film. nano.RIPE returned for the film's opening theme song "Ao no Rakugaki." Kotori Koiwai, Rie Murakawa, Ayane Sakura, and Kana Asumi performed the ending theme song "Omoide" (Memories) as their respective characters.

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 film tells the story of the "Okinawa Trip Arc" from Atto's original manga.
