NOOOO We were so close in hearing big brother's voice D:

I wasn't expecting Renge to be such a talented artist. I love the cool relaxing feeling of Autumn they gave us in this ep.

I loved the classical music discussion when they were talking about Vivaldi's four seasons. I absolutely love these musical pieces, and for them to talk about it is just wonderful to watch.

Woah, Komari got a portable CD player :O What a pimp!!! That is so........90s, girl.
Poor Komari, she feels so out of place, I feel her T^T
Konomi, a new character again, and she is a 3rd year highschool student?? What, she doesn't look like one :O??
Damn, so close!!! Now Suguru's voice will forever remain a mystery, that scene was cool though.
I would love to draw at that place, really beautiful. I want to experience autumn!!!!
I remember buying and playing airplane toys like that, it was really cool.
Those facial expressions they make are priceless ahahaha.
LOL at the end.

Haha, loved the scene where Koma-chan is talking to Hotaru and Konomi in her room and feeling childish at every subject they talked about. Very nicely written!

It's Autumn! and a komari-centric episode!
This episode just reminds me of the amazing art and visuals this anime has.
I just love how the anime creates long pauses to invoke thoughts or create awkwardness in the show.Back to the episode,im surprise that renge-chan was so good at drawing (better than me even),I'm curious what the artistic masterpiece of hers looks like though.
I ROFL at the Suguru part though,at how the anime teasing me,covering suguru's voice with the guitar's.At least,I know now he's not a mute.
This anime just gets better and better!

Ren-chan is unexpectedly very good at drawing.

Don't try to be an adult, you grow into one. I still need to grow into one

Komari tries too hard to be mature haha.

Renge can draw :O Too bad we didn't get to see her other drawing of Komari rolled in a ball from the perspective of someone behind her. She's so random xD

Finally an episode where Koma-chan and the real star. Interesting because by way of understanding about its character and its sweetness; I'm sorry but it's always a bit mistreated, the end is a very positive.We re happy to have seen the first season of this anime because I had completely forgotten about the character of Konomi, who knows when will meet again in the second season of Non Non Biyori; She is also very funny as a character. Renge never fails to amaze.

Renge confirmed again as best character.
"You don't have to get so into it."
"You're taking this too seriously. Your opponent is in elementary school, you know."

Too bad we couldn't see her original drawing of Komari condensed into a ball.

Wow... This might be my favourite episode. It has tons of amazing aspects. It's hilarious, heartwarming, adorable AND absolutely gorgeous at the same time. I expected the artists to go a bit lazy as time went on (I would have understood it), but NOPE - the show is getting more and more gorgeous. What a masterpiece this is.

i could never understand the character Komari, why does she have to try so hard to pretend to be an adult with such strugling. The characters in this anime is too unpredictable and hard to figure out that i couldn't keep up with it anymore

Wow, who would've guessed that Ren is so talented at drawing? That portrait was awesome.

Also, "Glasses-kun" has some wicked guitar skills. But I guess we'll never hear him speak.

I respect your opinion as long as you respect mine.

The first part when they were talking about classic music was just hilarious. Later on when they were playing with the planes and renge lost - she was like : why are you so proud about winning against a first grader ? xD

The dude can play guitar, make anime figures, what can't he do lol

CD players aren't bad. I used to use those a lot when I traveled, still have one lying around somewhere.
Renge and her drawing lol. She may be young but wow she's brilliant for her age and talented.

Komari-chan is 14 years old? WHAAAAAAAT. Hahahaha. She looks 7. Hahaha! Probably she already hit puberty, but nothing changed; she still looks the same. Hahaha.

I feel so proud of myself knowing about classical music, and knowing about Vivaldi's famous piece "Four Seasons". Winter is my fave piece there.

Hotaru is in love with Komari. Hahaha. She's so gay for her, I swear, and it's so cuuute! :3

I want to see Hotaru's finished drawings of Komari, though, and even the one with Komari and Ren-chon.

Poor Komari, trying to be seen as more mature, only to fail miserably.

Also, cutout airplanes. I remember playing with those in my childhood. How nice :)

Really sweet episode. This is a weird comparison but Komari really reminds me of Buggy in One Piece. She's helped me understand him even further.

I think the beauty of Non Non Biyori goes past its characters. For, if this was a show with fast pacing and less of a focus on the beauty within the little things I wouldn't care for it. However, the musical choices and the panning nature shots and the jokes which have long delays after them, it all feels very real and nice. In this episode alone we had 3 girls dry persimmons while having fun with it and making it a game, naming one and giving it a story, and Komari came out of her shell and actually seemed more grown up as she acted like the child she is. All while resting on the persimmons hanging and giving Komari as well as the viewer a minute to take in the mundane beauty of the situation, the persimmons hung like Christmas ornaments made through a loving group effort. It was a scene that made work fun and beautiful the whole way through and the ability for Non Non Biyori to do that is awesome.

I guess lastly, the brother is such a nice character. He reminds me of Freddy from Cromartie. He started as the voiceless male character but slowly got characterized into a loving brother, a musician and artist, a creative mind, an otaku. He's getting more and more to him and its charming!
