Sentai Filmworks Licenses Non Non Biyori Repeat Anime
posted on by Karen Ressler
Sentai Filmworks announced on Thursday that it has licensed the anime Non Non Biyori Repeat. The company plans to release the series digitally and on home video.
Non Non Biyori Repeat is the second anime season inspired by Atto's Non Non Biyori manga. 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.
The first anime season's staff and the rock band nano.RIPE are returning for the second season. The band will perform the opening theme song "Kodama Kotodama." The four main voice actresses will again perform the ending theme song "Okaeri" (Welcome Home).
The series premiered on Crunchyroll on July 6.
The first television series from director Shinya Kawatsura and anime studio SILVER LINK (WATAMOTE, Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) premiered last year. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed it for North American digital and home video release.
