Non Non Biyori Rural Comedy Anime Gets 2nd Season

Series heroine Renge: "I'll be back"

The official Twitter account for the anime adaptation of Atto's Non Non Biyori rural comedy manga announced on Sunday that a second season of the anime has been green-lit. The announcement was first made at the anime's fan event on Sunday.

The story 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.

Atto launched the manga in Monthly Comic Alive in 2009, and Media Factory published the manga's sixth volume last September. The first television series from director Shinya Kawatsura and anime Studio Silver LINK (WATAMOTE, Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) premiered last October. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks has licensed it for North American digital and home video release. An original anime DVD (OAD) will be attached to the limited edition volume seven of the manga, which is scheduled to ship in Japan on July 23.
