Non Non Biyori Episode 2

Time for some more Non Non Biyori!

I know I didn’t write much about it the first episode, and I believe I will never write much about it because, let’s face it, it doesn’t have anything of interest asides being filed with moe and cuteness (which is always good :D)

This episode is, again, cute girls being cute. It begins with a popular blackboard eraser-trap backfiring and hitting Komari in the head, only to be “cleaned” by Hotaru, who, instead of cleaning the chalk dust off her head, ends up “molesting” (as in patting the hell out of her head) Komari in a scene that reeks of yuri.

Afterwards, Komari goes to Hotaru’s house to play, and Hotaru, that has a huge “crush” on Komari, gets all dressed up to meet her, to the point that Komari can’t even recognise her and mistakes her for an older person. And yeah, that sums it up. More moe, more light-hearted comedy. Always fun 😀

To be honest, their teacher is amazing… How did she managed to not be fired is just awesome!

Is it just me, or does she seem similar to Aisaka Taiga?

Wow, I’ve never seen anyone react like that over a simple candy…

Really, Komari doesn’t want to be called little, but she dresses like a little girl! (Still, she’s cute as hell! ALL HAIL THE LOLIS!)

And that’s pretty much it. I’ve already finished writing my Outbreak Company review, just gonna add some pics to it and will upload it one or two days from now! 😀

Non Non Biyori Episode 1 Review

So, I just started watching Non Non Biyori because I felt like having a change of pace and watch some moe anime… And Non Non Biyori doesn’t disappoint in that regard.

The serie's main loli

The series’ main loli

While the first episode is completely devoid of any plot whatsoever, we get to see cute girls being cute just for the sake of it, and that’s always nice.

[FFF] Non Non Biyori - 01 [578B3C97].mkv_snapshot_06.55_[2013.12.27_04.20.27]

The series takes place in a very small rural town, with only 4 students, each of a different grade. Every student is placed in the same classroom, due to insufficient number of students to have a class of each grade. And then a transfer student comes from Tokyo, a breath of fresh air in town. The girls all become interested in this new student, who is a very shy and cute girl. And then the girls do more cute stuff, a guy gets stuck inside the school’s foundations, more cute stuff, a sakura tree scene, and Renge realizes that they “live in the sticks”. And that pretty much sums the episode.

All characters are cute, although none of them has, as of the first episode, that memorable feeling of some characters. Also, the directing/animation is nothing extraordinary, it is your typical low-risk high-gain moe anime.

Probably the first episode’s most interesting thing was the appearance of this racoon dog ^^’

Well, twintails and a loli are a sure-fire recipe for moe

And that’s pretty much it. Cute girls doing cute stuff. Always nice once in a while, but I’m getting tired of all this moe-shit anime that fills the season roosters… Japanese Authors/Animators/Directors/Franchise owners, PLEASE be a bit more risk friendly! You are drowning the entire anime industry in moe-shit due to being scared of introducing something new and different!
