This episode was really damn funny. LMAO Ren-chon became the Tero Tero Bozu LMAO at Kazuho who dressed up Tero Tero Bozu too lol

Why do they have school on Saturdays? Is it a village thing?

More like a private school thing. Public schools have a "normal" 5 day week, but no public school would open up for only five students(also private schools are the standard in anime, as they are just a little more "glamorous" and have more potential for unusual stories and anime generally tends to be a little anachronistic)
In 9/10 cases, the worst thing about an anime is its fandom.

Non Non Biyori is the only show where they can just put on an almost-still-frame for 10 seconds while Renge is playing on her flute and it works.

Watching an episode of this before going to sleep is always 11/10.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Dagashi-ya finally! xD

I was so sad that Renge can't cry like normal child.. I mean it's more saddening

So peaceful and heartwarming
Natsumi, she's idiot ok! But she had a nice heart, that's all matters xD

Teru Teru Bouzou Renchon was funny... and a bit creepy! Poor Koma-chan. xD

The ending was lovely.

this episode is pure Non Non Biyori!!!

Best episode of the season so far, laughter for the first part and tears in the second, but still keeping that placid, chill atmosphere, love this show!

Episode combining deep meanings in everyday scenes such as one sees often. Atmospheres that condense the joy of life and the sadness of a disastrous event, is what is Non Non Biyori. Wow, I love this show more and more. T_T

Quite some time since I've laughed so hard with a scene, that Teru Teru Bouzu part was just amazing especially that ending! Those Tadpoly shrimps were also quite lovely, let's see what's next!

Really enjoyed this episode.

The first half was quite funny while the second was more serious, but both parts were equally and entertaining and cute.
The rain was lovely.
Mirai, zura~!

Aww, that was so cute. Ren-chon is the highlight of this show, as usual.

What a nice and sweet episode. Renge was really awesome in this one, from her wanting to dress up as a Teru teru bozu to make the rain stop to her being sadden after the death of her shrimp. It was perfect.

Natsumi was a saint for putting the shrimp eggs in the tank for Renge. She has been my favorite since the first season and I'm loving her more. She should be the oldest, but I don't want Komari to be upset lol

Cartoons and anime is my reality.

Btw.. she is quite the artist. xD

That was a really adorable episode. It can't be a coincidence that the episode numbers of the Honoka story and the second half of this episode are the same. Anyway, I liked episode 4 of season 1 so I naturally liked this one.

EDIT: It took me until episode 7 of Repeat to realize that the song Renge played on the recorder was the school anthem.

I really like this show.

The first part, with Renge dressed up as a teru bouzu, was pretty funny. The second, with Renge's tadpole shrimps, was rather sad, but still with a happy ending. Yeah, I'll say it again: I really like this show. I can't pick a favorite character, tho; they're all good. I just wish that dude with glasses spoked once in a while.

I respect your opinion as long as you respect mine.

I don't like the sisterly relationship that is developing with Rin and Natsumi, like when she was carrying her on a piggyback, like a mature person.

Also, Rin has such attention-to-detail drawings for a first grader.:O But I liked how she expressed herself.

Even though it's funny to see the typical style of non non like for example some still scenes which amplify the character of an individual presented in the anime I still have to complain about it because sometimes it's just killing screen time.

This week in Komari's Yuujinchou, Koma-senpai faces her scariest challenge yet.

..Or not.

These scenes made me tear up. The previous season didn't deliver such a punch in the feels, so this was unexpected.

Definitely my favourite episode in the series so far. Renge-chon, please become a marine biologist when you grow up.

I am honestly so shocked at the amount of people who had bad things to say about this episode. Have you people no heart? Does this give you no warm feeling inside at all? Then there is something very wrong with you o_0

Such a sweet episode, I almost started to tear up at the end. Truly wonderful episode. Renge is the sweetest thing ever!!

Great episode 5/5

Their rural area is a paradise it's so beautiful, too bad finding work or working in rural areas sucks, it's pretty much perfect only when your in vacation, or if your someone who doesn't need to work yet. the teru teru bouzu yokai part is funny while the second part give me some sort of nostalgia from the time when i was little and had a pet frog.

For the people who complains about how "nothing happens" and the guy that act like a smartass and over analyze stuff but too stupid to realize this is a SOL anime, seriously are these people so dumb that they don't even realize that this anime isn't for them? or are they masochist? which is it?stop watching if you don't like it dumbass, Simple as that.

Why is Ren-chon so adorable? Gaaaah. This episode made love her moooooore!

Ren-chon being a teru-teru bouzu doll and it's the cutest teru-teru bouzu doll I've ever seen. Waaah. And her scaring Komari-chan. Hahaha.

Ren-chon taking care of Flatty-san and omg she was so sad when they died, but Natsumi-chan did something and finds out Flatty-sans laid eggs, so Ren-chon is happy again. Gaaaaaah!

I honestly don't want to see Ren-chon sad, I want her to smile and be happy always. I just love her so much! My baaaaby. <3

Ugh. This episode is so precious I can't even. ;-; <3

This episode was another example of how NNB isn't afraid of holding a scene in front of the viewer. Aside from all the nature and object still shots, the show held the scenes where Renge is playing her recorder and where Renge is standing in front of the shrimp's grave for a considerable length of time. The show doesn't mind forcing the viewer to dwell on some reflective scenes.

An overall pleasant and relaxing episode of Non Non Biyori. Poor Koma-chan though, lol, getting chased and running in fear for her life and then when she thought that she's finally saved, an even worse fate awaited her, Pretty cute reaction of her. Renge is also adorable as always.

The show doesn't mind forcing the viewer to dwell on some reflective scenes.

The difference being that NNB knows how to hold the scene and which scenes to hold. I want to make my stance perfectly clear on this topic - I think held scenes are bad and I think they are lazy. In the exceedingly rare case where the hold is used with purpose, there are better ways to make a point and better ways to have the viewer reflect on a point that is being made. Most of the time held scenes are used because they ran out of stuff to do and needed to pad the run time. NNB makes it work because the whole point is about the every day life in the sticks where nothing happens.

The episode focused on Renge and sitting there playing a recorder until dinner is ready is very much in line with what I expect from her. Second, the scene with her standing outside in the rain works because it shows her maturity in really the only way you can given the amount of time we spent with the tadpoles. She wanted to spend more time with them. She was fine writing how she felt in her journal instead of breaking down like most kids her age would. If the same thing happened for any other character in this series I would have said it was in poor taste.

Let's be honest though - Renge is a free pass to mess up however they want.


In response to the first page of comments made 3 years ago, I want to express my disappointment in you for not liking a series because you projected your expectations onto it. See the series for what it is, not for what you want it to be. Failure to do so removes any and all credibility you may have. The series is not a comedy, and shame on MAL for labeling it as one. Likewise, if you have not picked up on this fact by the end of the first season, decided to watch the second, and STILL want to complain about it not being a comedy...

Ren-chon is carrying this series almost on her own. The switch from hilarious at the beginning to super adorable at the end, she's quite something.

This was good...and sad.
Komari got scare of Renge when she dress up as teru teru bozu.
I got curious about tadpole shrimp so I google the picture and boy they look awesome.

Nah, they are fucking gross, I googled while watching and damm, they look disgusting IMO.

Great episode, very different first and later parts, that ending was soo harming too, Renge's way to express really delivers raw emotion so well, you can see she is slowly learning about life, and I m glad at least this episode ended in a positive note for her.
