THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
YES! The return of the Nyanpasu! I noticed a lack of it from the first episode of the second season.

Pretty funny episode with the rulers and pencils. Hell, even that one dude got involved in the game. This episode bought some nostologia imo. I used to remember playing with rulers in class


I liked how it got a bit eerie at night too.

Nyanpassu! Finally figured out why the title is called Non Non Biyori Repeat.

They translated nyan-pasu :<

Edit, lol posted in the same second as post above


BTW
Voice acting is perfect. I'm amazed how good it actually is (it is normal that anime has good VA, but this show has even better Va than usual anime)

And the birth of Hotaru's senpai obsession has officially started at the end of the episode :D

Nyanpasu is back and I am fully satisfied.

So it really is filling in gaps in Season 1. Welp, another fantastic outing. That ruler game was adorable and intense! :D And Hotaru and Komari together is always a treat.

So that's how Hotarun grew fond of Komari. I'm actually digging the ''repeat'' more than i thought, this has big potential.

The pen and ruler game has to be one of the best things i have seen from Non Non Biyori. That was brilliant.

Hotaru was accepted pretty fast well with these character it's not very surprising.
It's nice to see them all getting along like that.
The star viewing event was funny especially how they got lost.

Yes I enjoyed every moment of it too. Hopefully we can see more games in future episodes. Also the ED is one of my favourites so far this season. <3

That was a pretty intense fight, you can't underestimate their older brother.
We also got to knew why Hotaru adores Koma so much. (I'm also scared of bugs)
I really like the repeat concept so far.

Wow that game actually looked really fun, might try to play it sometime. Onii-san sure was a beast in that game, so badass.

So far, Repeat feels like a big, messy project made up of leftovers from the first season. It's still cute, but it's lost all the charm that it originally had.

The episode said it best:

I'm so glad this show is back. I guess after this season's done, we'll be able to figure out what happens chronologically and watch the episodes switching back and forth between the 1st and 2nd seasons.

Finally, Koma-chan senpai has done her mission for them, and Hotarun happily supports her.

Hmm? So this will be more of a prequel? Or will there be actually episodes that will take place after S1...was that mentioned anywhere?

Yeah, missing the point completely here. Non Non Biyori was never about plot, it's about the character interactions and the atmosphere. So i don't see the problem here (maybe Vodall sees a bigger picture here though :P) Same goes for everyone else, if you expect plot in this series, then you are watching the wrong series. A ''repeat'' should just not bug you in this anime.

It's not a prequel but a set of stories that happened on inbetween the episodes of season 1.

Only a set of them so some will be like a real "sequel"? If so, where did you get that info from?

Another nice episode! The episode was already over before I knew it. That knock-down-the-ruler game was pretty tense with that background music, lol. It's always funny when the brother's involved. And Renge, nyanpasu <3. Hotaru can be damn adorable herself too. And also those attack names, lmao. The ED really puts me at ease. Looking forward to next episode!

"Repeat" more like a remake of season 1, but more detailed one rather than season one, oh well, at least we have non non biyori again!

The first part of this episode was by far the most enjoyable I've ever seen from NNB. It almost felt like I was watching No Game No Life for a bit lol


Dunno about the ending though... I mean if you're in the countryside and have THAT much starlight at night I don't think it ought to be any problems whatsoever for a healthy teenager to see in the dark... well whatever :s

Yeah, missing the point completely here. Non Non Biyori was never about plot, it's about the character interactions and the atmosphere.

the atmosphere and character interactions were what I meant by "charm"—IMO, they've been far inferior to those of the first season thusfar. i also haven't laughed yet, but that's all subjective, anyway.

The average shounen wishes it could have battles as intense as that ruler game :D

Very fun episode and Komari-heavy which I don't mind at all.

It still kinda bothers me why they took full reverse back to the starting point just two years after first series but well...

Still, the first ruler part felt rather boring and I really don't know why they though it would be fun to watch. The main appeal of the this series is in four girls walking the countryside and that's something creator are kinda forgetting it here. Also, Hotaru's introduction was done a lot better in original series, and I don't think she needs to be such crybaby (quite contrary, she always acts pretty mature for her age).

I guess at least second part with dog and stars was ok afterall. But all-in-all, like others I have the feeling we will be seeing mainly leftovers that didn't fit into first series. Though I really hope that's not the case in the end.

I think I'm liking this season more than the first—and I already loved the first, so that's saying something. It feels as immersive as ever, and I think that's in part because of great sound direction. And Hotaru and Komari, probably.

This was great. Picking up right where Season 1/EP 1 leaves off. The ruler game was so hilarious. Koma-chan's angry/excited/scared voice cracks me up! I streamed episode 2 using free wifi at a coffee shop and I hope my laughter did not disturb the other patrons.

The star-gazing and having to walk home in the dark was a nice touch.

I've already started doing that -season 2/ep 1, season 1/ep 1, season 2/ep 2, season 1/ep 2. It's turning the original into a 24 ep single season in some regards.

Always nice to see Komari in senpai mode. And the love for Komari begins after this! Looking forward to the Komari dolls, the drawings are like a rough draft xD

Picking up that lid, couldn't help but imagine a bug on the underside and thus adding extra nutrition to the drink.

Quite the enjoyable episode, the games are also somewhat interesting.

From what I've heard, there's plenty of source material for new content to be animated from the manga so I'm not sure why they are going with this route... ???

There would be enough to make 12 episodes, like 27 chapters, but that only gets us to around early winter in the second year. Not a good place to just end the season, or we adapt only select chapters and just go original for the final 3-4 episodes.

They might just end this in the summer after S1 with the Okinawa trip, and save the last part for a possible/likely S3. Since, I'm not so sure the series goes past Komari's graduation, the mangaka might have already informed them, which is why they are going back like this so as not to catch up.

I'm really glad that Suguru is playing a bigger part now!

Also the ruler game segment reminded me of the choco-cornet scene from Lucky Star because of the drawn-out explanations.. but far more exciting!

Another fun and relaxing episode. Within the first minute, Ren-chon did her Nyanpasu greeting to Hotaru and that just made me smile so much. xD The knock-down-the-ruler game was hilarious and really entertaining. They had some pretty intense OST going throughout it. Suguru's 'last-second grab' was awesome. Hotaru was the one that won though, yay~ Hotaru was walking her dog but she became lost. Hilariously enough, Suguru seemed to be nearby and Hotaru's dog noticed the similar scent and ran straight to him. :D Komari and Hotaru walking at night to see the starry sky and eventually got lost was pretty funny. Hotaru carrying Komari on her back makes her look like the senpai. :P

Never thought a ruler battle would be this intense. >.<
If I ever play this game I will use a protractor.
