Seven Seas Adds Non Non Biyori Rural Comedy Manga
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
North American publisher Seven Seas Entertainment announced the company acquired the rights to Atto's Non Non Biyori rural comedy manga on Wednesday. The announcement is one of seven planned for this week.
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 seventh volume on July 23 with an original anime DVD (OAD).
A television anime series adaptation by Director Shinya Kawamo 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. A second television anime adaptation is in the works.
