Synopsis

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.

Its worth to become new generation anime if its implies more the romance / comedy its has . I've really hope its got season 2 though . Its be wise if them add up Married Ending and its will be Perfect ! Now , Lets proceed to the main story !

The main story of the show is the love triangle between Kosaku, Ringo, and Minori. It is not the best love triangle since he barely pays any attention to Minori always favoring Ringo. So if he absolutely had to choose one it would obviously be Ringo. He does show indecision sometimes though like when he read more

Who knew farming could be filled with so much passion and fun? Well, probably not as much in real life, but certainly in anime anything can be made fun, even something as mundane as farming. And oh boy, did I have fun watching this one.

With unique characters and strange, humorous twists at every episode, I was grinning most of the time. The personalities of the characters were simply and elegantly presented, allowing for easy understanding of where they were coming from and the kind of person each character was. Well, except a few. A bonus was that, amidst all of the fun, there was a read more

The anime is more comedy than "romance". It has some parts with kind of drama/romantic themes but the main thing here is the comedy borderlining silly and nonsensical. Every episode was fun to watch. The characters are interesting, the main is well balanced between wacky and serious, the support characters are interesting. The main theme is very interesting, the references and self awareness are good too. I really enjoyed and I wish there was another season or more episodes.

I'm sure all of us have one or two idols we look up to. Usually it's musicians or sports stars, maybe you're completely head-over-heels over your favourite anime director. Hata Kousaku is no different than us. Kousaku, attending an agriculture school, is completely obssesed over a certain popstar named Kusakabe Yuka. His obsession goes to absurd lenghts. He occasionaly sends his grown vegetables or fruit to Yuka and his whole room is completely filled with posters and what-not. Kusakabe Yuka shocks the world when she announces her retirement leaving Kousaku shocked and majorly depressed. Suddenly, a transfer student joins Kousaku's school and class under read more

Recommendations

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

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.

Dissimilarities:

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.



Both are very similar involving a quiet girl who gets transferred to a new school and hence, has to share the dorms with (most of) our main team. Comedy-style is very similar and so is the '5-members-in-main-cast-with-one-developing-side-pairing-and-one-juicy-triangle' formula. If you liked Sakurasou, high chances are that you will like Nourin.
These two shows can be summed up in three words: agriculture, school, comedy.
However, while Nourin adds a romance genre, Moyashimon adds a supernatural genre to it's. Both are light-hearted and funny.
Both anime have a town girl who moves to the countryside and tries to adapt. If you really enjoy these kinds of anime, I think that you would enjoy it!! :D
I don't know because what no one don't made this recomendation,but ok. At all,both have a "touch" of ecchi in the plot,but this touch is under control and is more said than did it... Both have too aged pervert teachers that are a such...
