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 plot! Not a flawless story, but something to add a bit of drama and set a level of seriousness.
As I continued to watch, and as the existing plot continued to develop, I realized that I was watching Nourin more for its humor than for its serious undertone. I could appreciate where the seriousness fit into the grand scheme of things, but the most memorable parts of this series were the funny and ridiculous.
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.
Very similar feel and humour. Aki from BakaTest and Kousaku from Nourin are spitting images of each other in personality! Nourin is smuttier though ...
The anime have a same kind of feel and they have the same kind of humor. If you enjoy one of them, you're going to enjoy the other probably as well.
The school where our main characters study are slightly different than your regular ones, one is about agriculture while other is more related to super-powers. Nonetheless, the comedy style is very similar and so is the art. You will surely enjoy Nourin if you liked Baka Test even if the overall premise is different ;)
+ Same random humor
+ Main characters are very similar and both shows have a love triangle
+ School setting where different groups in the school compete against each other (BtT has classes and grades and Nourin has different agricultural sections)
From the studio that brought you the action series "Strike the Blood" comes a romantic comedy in a school environmental place. The story features a main male character who are caught up in a situation revolving girls around his space. It can be either love, jealous, hate, or emotions depending their mood of their actions. Expect some slapstick, and funny moments in here as the show goes on.
Baka and Test is a fantasy show where characters uses avatar through a battle competition. No-rin is a normal show that features an Idol who takes a "break" from entertainment and attends a school.
Both of the anime are made by the same director and it really show in the art style. Both of the show also use a multitude of cliche in an extreme way. They both have a really stupid and perverted MC, the childhood friend who is secretly in love with the MC, the shy popular girl the MC is in love with. Nourin is pretty much a Baka Test agricultural version.
- The Comedy parts of these two are almost the same but Baka to Test is much more funnier than Nourin
- The Teachers in these anime are weird
- Main Female Characters likes the Main Male Character
- Both anime do weird missions or tasks ( weird & funny )
- Both Comedy, School and Romance genre'd anime
- Makes you want to watch more
Both are hilarious animes that will make you die from laughter.
well, this is my first recommendation
when i first watching this anime, i had a feeling like the anime i have watched before. that anime was baka to test to shoukanjuu. the similarities are :
1. both akihisa and kousaku have an identical hairstyle, but different colour.
2. both akihisa and kousaku have an identical "idiot" personality.
3. both the graphics of nourin and baka to test have the same style
4. both nourin and baka to test have many of pervert characters
sorry for my bad english
There's some sort of love triangle, it's comedy, the main characters are schoolgraders and they're a group of friends. They're very similar in essence
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.
Both of the settings are in farming schools and both are very funny.
Both anime are station around agricultural surroundings.
Both are set in an agricultural high-school, where the MC from the city has come to study and all crazy things starts to happen.
Set in the countryside, Nourin follows the daily lives of high school students whose school is close to a dairy farm for agriculture activities. The main characters interact with each other about their problems, work on the farm, or just have fun on their free time. Nourin is a mostly a comedy show where an idol retires from the entertainment industry and goes to a school close to a dairy farm. Expect some romance, comedy, and conflicts around the story. Gin no Saji follows a boy who has been assigned to a school, though focuses much more on him going through life and his education about the farm.
