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

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.

The same peaceful and laid-back kind of slice of life anime. Both are comedies about a group of girls attending the same school and their everyday life.

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.
