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 idea of agriculture is being shown more lately, such as Gin No Saji, or Moyashimon, but this is one that definitely makes a name for itself. The characters are all great and all have personalities that fit the feel of the anime perfectly and does a good job giving new comedy every episode.

This was one of the newer anime 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. Be warned that a lot of the comedy is perverted, but it's nothing bad 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.

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.
