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.

The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings. - Masanobu Fukuoka

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. We cannot all do great things. But we can do small things with great love. What you see depends on how you view the world. To most people, this is just dirt. To a farmer it’s potential.

Nourin cover all aspect of Romance, Slice of life, Agriculture down to the core itself.

I'll get back to the main story in a minute. I want to clear this first.

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.

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.

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: Gin no Saji
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  read more

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: 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.

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
