This anime is a panacea of the heart and mind.

Life too stressful? Worried or anxious about something? Just sit down in front of the screen and put this anime on, and all your concerns will dissolve away - probably within seconds. Everything - setting, plot, sound, music, art, humour - all of it is perfectly crafted at maximising this effect. And what an effect it is.

The story itself is a simple one. It follows the daily lives of four girls of various ages who all live in the same rural village and are in the same class at school. Almost everything that happens is following read more

This is my first review, but I'll try my best to follow the guidelines.

Ah. Non Non Biyori.

To be honest, when I first saw the concept art and previews, I was not impressed. Frankly, I dismissed it as yet another slice of life show, a genre so regularly plagiarized that one can't help but wonder if the anime studios are running out of ideas, as each subsequent series seems to be a cut and paste of an earlier show. It was only with great encouragement from Youtube pianist Tehishter that I began watching the show with the lowest of expectations. I was pleasantly surprised at how read more

Yes, I have a sweet spot for slice of life anime. I genuinely enjoyed the laid-back shows such as GJ-bu, Tamayura, Yuyushiki etcetera this year, but that doesn't stop me from saying that Non Non Biyori was one of the most conformist and loveliest experiences in the past few months. It's definitely great-tier in the slice of life section.

The simplistic story takes place in a rural area of the countryside. Eleven year old Hotaru Ichijou moves into the town from Tokyo with her parents, and transfers into a school consisting of only four more students; Renge, Natsumi and Komari (yes, it's a rather small read more

Anime can fulfil many roles and act as many outlets for people. Non Non Biyori, simply put, is an experience that plays on the sweeter side of us all. For someone looking for a soothing, relaxing, cute and humorous adventure, there's a lot to get out of Non Non Biyori. Lovers of the moe slice of life genre will find something to love in this anime for sure.

Story: (7/10; Not important): The thing about Non Non Biyori and many other slice of life that come in this style is that there is no real deep plot line filled with twists and turns. The free-flowing read more

A main character living away from the crowded cities. The essence of a slice of life show. Non Non Biyori and Barakamon gives off a charming elegance with its atmosphere and setting. Both series may lack a linear storyline or complex plot twists. However, they make it up with its exquisite adaptation of its comedy. The dialogues are engaging, the characters are realistic, and the relationship dynamics are memorable. I recommend both series for anyone who is looking for a fun slice of life show.

They might not have a complex story but both of these shows has their own charms when it comes to characters. This is especially evident when the cast is made up of cute girls doing cute things on a daily basisi. The mood is mostly lighthearted for both series so don't expect anything deep or complex. Rather, expect humor and character relationships that is innocent and memorable. I recommend both series if you're looking for something to relax for the day and enjoy a simple, yet alluring show with classic slice of life ideas.

They share similar humor, which often arises from traits of characters. While Non Non Biyori focuses on that type of humor, Nichijou also contains a fair amount of random nonsense

First all I have to say is, Kawaii!!!!! They both revolve around the daily lives of cute young girls and their friends. Both stories are very light hearted and employ simple life lessons on friendship and enjoying life. Don't expect for your intellect to be challenged with these series, but instead watch them with a relaxed state of mind and enjoy the comedy of the antics these lovable characters get involved in each episode. K-On!'s story is more related to music, and the girls are in highschool. Non Non Biyori girls are a variety of ages, and the story involves life in the Japanese country  read more

Both animes center around slice of life and comedy with similar characters and really cute storyline both has light hearted humour the dissimilaritys are that lucky star centers around everyday life in the city whereas non non biyori centers around life in the country also lucky star is a parody whereas non non biyori is not. If you loved the light hearted humour and the cute storyline then you will love lucky star but if you watched non non biyori for its amazing art then lucky star is not for you

Same type of quirky humor with an adorable cast of characters
Focus on slice of life without a deep subplot or too much drama
Both have the same level of artwork put into it as well
If you like one you will like the other almost certainly
