When the national idol Kusakabe Yuka suddenly retired from the entertainment business, it shocked the world and it devastated teenager Hata Kosaku. Kosaku was Yuka's biggest fan and her departure left him depressed. His classmates at the Tamo Agriculture School finally are able to get him to leave his room and attend his class, but to everyone's amazement, Kusakabe Yuka (her stage name) comes into the class under the name Kinoshita Ringo as a transfer student. Kosaku realizes he has the once in a lifetime opportunity to get to personally know his dream girl and, together with his group of friends, try to find out why she is here and become closer than just classmates.

This was one of the 2014 animes that i was looking forward to, but got disappointed and stopped around episode 3. After giving it another shot and recently re-watching it, I can say that i greatly enjoyed this. Though it is a comedy, a lot of it is off perverted stuff and can be over the top.

Overall - 9/10
The story is nothing complicated, but nothing enough to make me stray away from the anime. The art is top quality through the anime and never ceased to fail me. The opening & ending compliment the anime well and background music fits each mood perfectly. The character read more

My pick for "Underrated Anime of Winter 2013/14"...

Usually the titles which are in the spotlight would be those involving intense action, intense feels, or those which were adapted from already popular manga or LNs. However, it has been proven over the past few seasons that some of the ones which are less popular may turn out to be that decent after all.

Nou-rin was by no means an anticipated series. The LN was relatively unknown by most, and there wasn't a manga adaptation. Hence when I first started watching it, I really didn't know what to expect from it. And 12 weeks on, I'm glad read more

Very similar feel and humour. Aki from BakaTest and Kousaku from Nourin are spitting images of each other in personality! Nourin is smuttier though ...

Both have the same setting in an agricultural high school.

Both have the same main characters who came from the city to study in the said school.

Both also involves the same main character's who are running away from something.

Both main character's wear glasses.


One anime is focus on one main character, while in the other anime it is evenly distributed among the group of characters.

the glasses wearing main character has that "from the frying pan to the fire" kind of predicament, while the other glasses wearing character is more of a "from the fire to the frying pan" thingy.
