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.

In life, there are things that are misleading, such as commercials on TV, ads on the internet, and even, anime. There are certain things in anime that I require in order for me to really like it, and that is a good exposition, a decent amount of character development, and a nice end in the last few minutes of the series to wrap it all up. Nourin here...broke every single one of those foundations I set down for myself. In any case, here's the review.

Story (3.43/10): The story of Nourin is set in an agricultural school, where a student by the 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.

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

Well, that anime ain't bad,but I'm just not that impress as how it was presented at all, the plot was pretty much a typical harem theme, but I can't ignore that there are two groups of characters that this anime was on two, the first one was the harem theme of Minori, Hata and Ringo, the second group was the romance theme between Kei and Yoshida. Well, if one is to examine this anime more focus was on the comedy aspect, but its comedy aspect- well let's just say that some parts were funny while there are some that where downright corny. Now, there are read more

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

Anime: Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
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.

Anime: Gin no Saji
Both anime share the same genre and story revolving around agriculture, the protagonists have suffered thru some trauma that has left it's scars, but are still diligently working and growing.
The plot is similar in that main characters in both anime come from the city
and have a fun yet annoying time fitting in.

Anime: Moyashimon
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.

Anime: Non Non Biyori
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...
