    A Nice Break From Over The Top Anime
    Basically this anime has a beautiful art style with a lighthearted story to it. The premise is that these four girls attend a school of which they are the only students there so they all share the same classroom. That's it, that's the story from watching episode one. But don't get the wrong idea; it works quite well for this anime. It's a lot of fun and I recommend it to everyone.

    Anime doesn't have to be about fan-service all the time!!
    This was so good!!! No fanservice , no ecchi stuff, no blood, no violence. Everything was so cute and entertaining!! I loved it so much!! This shows that anime doesn't need to have violence in it to be good and entertaining -.-!!!

    The Quiet Country Life
    Non Non Biyori focuses upon a group of students in a quiet country village, and quickly introduces the arrival of Ichijo Hotaru, a female transfer student from Tokyo. She becomes the fifth student at the village school, a mixed-grades class now with four girls and one boy. The first episode is pure slice-of-life, as slow-paced and relaxed as its setting. The humor is both ...

    My stress-free anime of this fall
    Relax and enjoy. For this kind of anime, I think it is okay for you to fall asleep for a while and watch it again as you like. Atmosphere, characters, wit, and music all fit together so that you can relax with nice slice-of-life anime on Monday nights. For me I have actually watched this a couple of more times, stress-free, while enjoying every bit of humor throughout the first episode. I will ...

    What a Beautiful Anime
    A handful of people complain about the pace of this anime being too slow and I can see why they feel that way. For example, the intro to the first episode is very calm, without any dialogue, however. I believe those harsh critics neglect the bigger picture; they tend to focus too much on the trivial details and they quickly become disinterested if there are no interactions within a thirty second ...

    Slice Of Life Done Fantastically
    When I first began watching Non Non Biyori, I really did not know what to expect. As much as I love slice of life anime, it can be very hit or miss. This problem arises when, in my observation, there is a major lack of development, and when the label of slice of life becomes expanded to "monotonous boredom", and series run on with no real purpose. Luckily, Non Non Biyori avoided these problems ...

    Just what the doctor ordered.
    Super relaxed atmosphere: check.
    Great comedy: check.
    Adorable characters: check.
    Gorgeous animation: check.
    A touch of the feels: check.
    Yuri undertones: SQEEE! *ahem* check.

    This is the perfect feel-good after a long day show. If you love slow paced slice-of-life it doesn't get much better than this.

    This is how we lived as little kids.
    This is exactly how we lived as little kids. Constantly "faffing about" when left on our own.
    This is a great anime to watch before bed. It is warm, happy and comfortable.

    Renge is god, nii-san loves cat girls
    When one of the first lines you here in a series is meowning, you know that you are either on drugs or you will have the greatest time of your life. Even though non non biyori was only 12 episodes (s2 coming soon) they were 12 episodes filled with great humour, lovable characters and a pretty solid story line all the while having probably the best background art in any series I have seen to date. ...

    Every Episode Made Me Smile
    Nice, easy-going story with engaging characters and a nice sense of humor. Like opening good-mood-in-a-box every time I watched; like the atmosphere of the series was somehow contagious.

    Fun to watch, nice to look at. I hope there will be another season.
