Non Non Biyori is a delightfully charming, all-ages manga series that follows the miscellaneous adventures of a group of girls in the Japanese countryside.
Striking a balance between slapstick humour and heartfelt nostalgia, Non Non Biyori features both artwork that beautifully depicts nature, as well as adorable characterisations of its main characters.
This slice-of-life gem is sure to appeal to fans of Yotsuba&! and Azumanga Daioh. The first season of the Non Non Biyori anime adaptation was released on home video and digital distribution by Sentai Filmworks in early 2015 and received a second season anime adaptation in Summer 2015.
Welcome to the countryside village of Asahigaoka, a quaint town far removed from the hustle-and-bustle of the big city.
You couldn't imagine a more isolated setting in all of Japan.
So when Tokyo-raised elementary school student Hotaru Ichijo transfers to the tiny Asahigaoka Branch School due to her father's job, she's in for the culture shock of her life!
Join Hotaru and her new friends, the eccentric Renge and the mischievous sisters Natsumi and Komari, as they share daily adventures in the idyllic Japanese countryside.
