Non Non Biyori Countryside School Comedy Manga Gets Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The wraparound jacket band on the fifth volume of Atto's Non Non Biyori manga is announcing on Saturday that an anime adaptation has been green-lit. The slice-of-life comedy is set in a countryside school with only five students total. 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.
Fifth-grade schoolgirl Hotaru Ichijō transfers from Tokyo to this school and readjusts to the slow life in the country. Her fellow schoolmates are first-year middle schoolgirl Natsumi, second-year middle schoolgirl Komari, first-grade schoolgirl Renge, and Komari's big brother Suguru in the third year of middle school.
Atto launched the manga in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in 2009.
