The AT-X channel began running a new program preview commercial for the anime of Atto's schoolgirl manga Non Non Biyori in Japan. The ad features the opening theme song "Nanairo Biyori" by nano.RIPE and narration by Kotori Koiwai as her character Renge Miyauchi.
The slice-of-life comedy is set in a countryside school with only five students total, including four girls:
On this isolated countryside, 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 anime will premiere on October 7, although AT-X will not begin running the anime until October 8. Atto launched the manga in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in 2009, and Media Factory published the manga's sixth volume in September.
ANN posted more details and a full English-subtitled trailer in this show's Anime Spotlight.
