Aahh~ Komari-chan is as adorable as always. Can I take her home..!?
I can't comment no more other than the scenery never failed to please my eyes and soothe my soul thus made me miss my village. If only the air can be inhaled too then it would be Kanpeki :D

Another great episode! Koma-chan getting scared of Ren-chon and nee-nee was so cute! And Rengee just became more adorable with the second half as well. Non Non Biyori's certainly one of the best in the Summer lineup!

Flatties....;___; Renge was so cute in this episode :3 Now it feels really like season 1, scenery shots and walking down the countryside etc. and then the candy store :3 Hate to see Renge sad....but glad to see her happy again at the end :'3

I don't like this. I thought the last two episodes were showing a lot more promise than the show had ever had, but now it's just reverting to the same old boring show where nothing ever happens again. This episode didn't even make me smile, let alone laugh :/

You realize it's a slice of life show, which means that there pretty much is no plot. I don't know why you think "something should happen", it's a show to watch for escapism and relaxation. We are viewing there everyday lives, hence why it's called a slice of life.
^ This. NNB isn't your "something always happens" type of anime. This show unfortunately isn't for you if you aren't in the mood for relaxing type anime works. SoL doesn't seem to be your genre judging by your ratings. So yeah, you might as well drop this, lol.

This anime really managed to make me laugh and feel sad in the same episode, and Renge is still outperforming as a character, I do not get tired of watching ..

Best episode of the season so far. The first half was really funny and the second half had this really relatable feeling.

This was easily my favorite episode of the series so far. The perfect balance of relaxation, sadness, happiness, and comedy.

The first half was alright but Kazu-nee using the mask at the end was way unnecessary. Second half is dragged a bit long. Renge is nice though. Next week is pool episode, hope it don't turn to pointless fanservice.

This was great, particularly the second half. We get to see how Renge copes with the death of a pet. I love how she doesn't start bawling when she's upset but instead exhibits a kind of stoic silence that manages to complement the still scenery shots and calm atmosphere of the show. That moment when she drew a self-portrait and then added tears to her eyes... well, that got me. It was much more powerful than an outburst of real tears would have been.

THAT! The silence shows so much more sadness (and understanding) about the death, it's like she's almost too sad to actually cry and when she draws the tears that she doesn't cry to her self-portrait...that hit me too...

The 1st half was funny as hell and the 2nd half was depressing.
I cried. Non Non Biyori hits with the feels again.

Finally, the feels! This was the real Non Non Biyori I missed so dearly! Nothing like previous episodes. Bittersweetly good 24 minutes!

Let's hope they just realized that this is the main appeal this show has. Even now, I'm praying for more similiar episodes.

Renge just kills me in this episode. she is hilarious and adorable with the whole teru-teru bouzu thing, for sure. But around 13:40ish when she starts playing Asahigaoka's theme on the recorder for nearly a minute, i think i melted

Definitely one of the best episodes so far. The first half was hilarious and I especially loved the second half. Instead of just showing Renge crying they made it all the more meaningful by utilizing the sceneries, still shots, and the silence to give us a melancholic atmosphere that represents Renge's sadness. This way of portraying it made what was supposed to be your average sad scene that much more emotional. I was worried that Repeat was just a shadow of it's former self, but this episode definitely showed that Non Non Biyori still has it!
Memories may fade, but that doesn't mean there isn't any point in making them.

Too many feels in one episode. When the first drop falls on Renge's hand it wasn't from the rain T_T

Renge is just too cute,no one want to see her sad or depressed.

Even though it was not shown I'm sure Nii-chan also worried about her, he seem happy to see her cheered up again here.

So, this still takes place before the first season started. I think I would enjoy a sequel more. This was an alright episode, a little boring to me.

There's no one who would think to deny that Natsumi is best girl and that the Koreans who drew her are the true patriots.

Also, R.I.P. Flatty-san.

Flatty-san did nothing wrong. Just like Chiaki Nanami, Komaeda, Adachi, and Homura.

this episode rivals last season's episode 4. Truly a beautiful episode.
Finding joy in the simple things in life...
The miracle of life...
This episode, from the Teru-teru bozu, to the bike riding, to Flatty-san, was honest to goodness Non Non Biyori feels. We got to hear the main theme again, both in a subtle melancholic piano version and a beautiful orchestral version. Just amazing. :')
There is something about Non Non Biyori...perhaps the innocence, nostalgia, or yearning for our childhood days, that makes it an anime on a class of its own.

Renge. <3

The part with Koma-chan and the Teru Teru Bozu cracked me up xD

Second part was very melancholic, but I'm glad it ended on a happy note! It really showed, how all of them care for Renge (as probably for all of the others too), even if it's just about a such a little thing.
I just think it's funny how in anime people can draw themselves perfectly... just reminds me of that one scene from the Simpsons, where Homer shows how to draw himself...

An we got to see Candy Store again, hope she will appear a lot more this season, although I'm pretty sure about it.

i wouldn't say this episode is like the first season—it was slow and empty for funsies rather than with purpose—but I agree with the sentiment.

worst episode to date, given it only had one half-hearted attempt at a joke.

edit: grammer

I would suggest that both of you stop watching right now as SoL is clearly not for you. IMHO this episode is up there with the best SoL episodes ever. The way that they tied in the Apart and Bpart of the episode was perfect and the Bpart hit me right in the feels! How the camera hovered just long enough on Renge as she was holding in her sadness, along with all those understated emotions was pure perfection. And THEN we finally get the payoff at the very end with the cycle of rebirth.

Awesome episode!

Perfect episode.
My tears wouldn't stop... Seeing Renge so sad broke my heart, especially when she drew herself on her journal crying.
The end though... Natsumi :') it was beautiful.
This is probably my favorite episode from Non Non Biyori along the first one of this season.

Teru teru bouzu Renge, and later how Komachi got scared of her and ran only to spot Renge's nee-nee... I died. For 10 mins, I laughed. This is the funniest anime ever now. The most relaxing, and the funniest, how much beautiful can it even get?

Yay Kaede! Missed her!

Man, this anime gives me childhood nostalgia. I remember when I was a kid, I would get happy over the smallest things. I miss being like that... In the end, the happiness lies in small packages. This is so important. Also, this episode was rain paradise. I LOVE rain, so it was one of my favorites.

Renge... This episode showed Natsumi's more mature, gentle side. I loved it.

This episode's theme was "hope" Even if you lose something, it's not the end. Beautiful things still exist, and as humans, it's our duty to find them. For own happiness, to live a bit more satisfyingly... Man I just adore non non biyori so much.

Ren chon surpassed herself dressed like a mega teru teru bozu
Poor Koma chan getting encountered by it even at the house xD

At the second half Renge shined again with a serious nature about life
The sketches looked like work from a pro
This was seriously the best of this month

D'aaww, why is Non Non Biyori such a great show? It just keeps getting better and better.

I particularly like the teru teru bouzu scenes. Haha, I thought it was cute (she kind of looked like a shy guy). The second half with flatty-san was pretty sad.

Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.

I knew Tadpole Shrimps as "Triops". They are marketed as some sort of aquatic dinosaurs over here. One thing they don't tell you in the anime is that they are CANNIBALS. One of the little buggers will eat the rest so there is usually a sole survivor...

anyway I really like Natsumi this ep. She can be quite perceptive for an idiot sometimes <3

I believe that unless you know for sure that you don't like a concept, you should keep exploring it. Whether it be characteristics of people or a genre of some sort, you never know if you don't like it until you've seen quality work corresponding to that genre. Keep exploring until you've found something you enjoy, or something of quality. Then you know what's bad, what's good, and what isn't for you.

This show is way too good in making me cry(NNB crying counter: 5), but that's why i love it. It's that quiet, non-dramatic sadness and how Ren-chon tried to be brave that really got to me. The part with the terror-terror bozu was very funny and both parts are fitting pretty well.
In 9/10 cases, the worst thing about an anime is its fandom.

Renge is the only one that solely delivers this Anime!
LOL at 1st part, Komari was so afraid of the Teru Teru Bozu Monster Mask with Black tear and Black drool (it was Renge) and also made it worse with Nee-nee wearing that same mask!
Oh God! Komari reaction was so delayed! LOL at "Help me! God,Budda,Mister Sun!"
2nd part was a bit sad because the tadpole shrimp that Renge is taking care of one day dies and you could easily know when Renge is currently depressed when her behavior is different by being silent and sometimes non responsive, but somehow Nattsun found a way because those tadpoles had already laid eggs. Then Renge was back at her normal self!
Who would have thought Renge can be a manga artist! She's a good cute Moe drawer of her self image!

Edit: Oh! i forgot...Candy Store is back! :))

I...may have cried a little when seeing Renge's reaction to Flatty-san dying :(
The resolution was so beautiful, though. And Renge just brings emotion into every part of her life.

I was initially tentative about the 'repeat factor' but watching the past few episodes, I thought: 'it's still Non Non Biyori after all' <3
