I live in Japan and got to see this movie in theaters the day it released. I am currently studying Japanese, and I'm not even at the JLPT N5 level yet. But I still went to see it with obviously no subs, and I enjoyed every second of it! Non Non Biyori was the perfect movie to go see without a grasp on the language because the story-telling is so easy to follow due to visuals and characters.

While there is really no "plot" in the movie, you shouldn't expect that if you've already seen the two season of the original series. The girls and read more

TL;DR: If you are a Non Non Biyori fan, you have to watch this. If you hate slice of life anime, I don't recommend you to watch this.

I own and have read all the mangas up until volume 12 (which is the most recently released one) at the time of writing this review.

The manga itself is super good, but this movie made the contents even better than the manga. This is not saying the manga is terrible or anything, in fact it's one of my favorites, but the movie went in to much more depth for the vacation chapters.

It's been probably a year and read more

I have looked forward to Non Non Biyori: Vacation for quite some time, and I am pleased to report that it stacks up very well against the original series. Continuing from the season 1 OVA, it follows the Asahigaoka group as they travel to tropical Okinawa for a summer vacation.

Story and Character (7/10):
NNB has never held a large focus on narrative, and neither does Vacation, but this is by no means to its detriment. Instead, an essentially anecdotal story is told as the girls explore Okinawa and enjoy themselves. The new setting does not bring any changes to the series’ established structure, and its pacing read more

4 years after being stranded on the plane to Okinawa, the girls have finally landed!

To understand the position I was in prior to watching this, I had booked an early ticket that came with early goodies just for this, having came back from a Non Non Biyori themed pilgrimage to Ogawamachi in Saitama. Waited in line in the cinema in Ikebukuro all giddy and hyped myself to no end just before watching this. Then I heard the seiyuu had a fan meeting in the cinema in Shinjuku. Then I actually watched the film.

Vacation is the continuation of the Non Non Biyori first season read more

[Insert clip of Osaka from Azumanga Daioh shouting OKINAWA~!]

Yes we see the Non Non Biyori gang all get a free 3 day trip to Okinawa and the typical great comedy ensues, but while on the trip, Natsumi makes a friend with the innkeeper's daughter.

Non Non Biyori: Vacation has the same strong vibe of being laxxed and chill with it's plot, yes it's somewhat bare bones in the regard LA told above but it in their free vacation and seeing the character interactions that made Non Non Biyori: Vacation worth it all, not to mention Non Non Biyori is WELL KNOWN for it's relaxing atmosphere read more

Non Non Biyori's setting is always at the rural village that they live in. The movie is a nice break from that and inserts all these characters in a new setting. The pacing and simplicity from the show carries over to the movie. Overall, if you're a big fan of the series, you'll love the movie. There is an OVA from the first season that connects to the movie. It's not necessary to watch but it gives some background to the story. I did watch it beforehand. It's not hard at all to follow for someone who hasn't seen the show but they won't read more

Ever since I watched Non Non Biyori last year, I was captivated by it's simple yet relaxing story. Being from a city, life is pretty chaotic, busy and fast paced. You rarely get to enjoy life. Non Non Biyori took me back to my childhood when life was still simple and enjoyable.

When I first heard that Non Non Biyori movie was airing last year, I was over the moon! I couldn't wait and now that I've watched it, it has reminded me of my childhood once again. The childhood I love so much.

Story: Though Non Non Biyori has a very simple story, it's read more
