Idol-obsessed Kousaku Hata is left devastated when his favorite, Yuka Kusakabe, unexpectedly announces her retirement at the peak of an illustrious career. As Yuka’s biggest fan, this news proves to be more difficult than he can bear. Shaken to his very core, he sinks into depression and places himself in self-imposed isolation. However, on the day his friends managed to convince him to attend school again, he gets a pleasant surprise.

It turns out that his beloved idol, under the guise of Ringo Kinoshita, has transferred into his class. This miraculous development fills Kousaku with newfound resolve, as he dedicates himself to take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. With the support of his teacher and friends, Kousaku works toward getting close to the girl of his dreams and uncovering the reason for her retirement from the entertainment industry.

I don't know how this anime got such a low rating, probably because their expectations don't match the genre (lol). Actually this anime is not as bad as its current score in MAL (6). If you like comedy containing shinometa (vulgar jokes), their ridiculous behavior and comedy parody from several anime such as Jojo, Saint Seiya .etc. I think this is the right anime for you.
According to the name Nourin which means Agriculture & Forestry. This anime gives a little understanding about agriculture. Just like the Silver Spoon Anime which shows how hard it is to live as a farmer, this anime also gives that ...

I came upon this title by chance, on the meme of boobs (world-cup) vs flat-chested war with the punchline that the mc actually prefers feet above all; i expect it to be comedy-ecchi.

It tries to balance its multiple character stories but not to the point that it dug deeper to each stories / themes. It has a potential as an educational anime about farming - sadly silver spoon ...

"No-Rin, where do I even begin? This anime had me questioning life choices right from the absurd premise.

I get it; comedy can be subjective, but there's a thin line between clever and just plain cringe. No-Rin, unfortunately, falls into the latter category more often than not.

Despite the eye-rolling premise and the predictable use of tired gags, I'm not completely heartless. I'll throw the English dub cast a bone. They tried their best to salvage this sinking ship. I ...
