Today May 28 is the birthday of Hotaru Ichijo, one of the four main girls of Atto's comedy manga series Non Non Biyori and its anime adaptation. To celebrate her birthday, the anime official site is now featuring Hotaru's smiling anime GIF in flight attendant uniform on the main page. The PR Twitter account for the anime says that the reason why she is wearing the uniform will be revealed in the anime's 13th episode which will be bundled with the special edition of the upcoming 7th volume of the manga. The volume will be released in Japan on July 23 and the price for the special edition is 3,600 yen (about US$35).
