Anime Review: Non Non Biyori Repeat

Standard

So technically I have already reviewed this series before. If you want to know what to expect out of this series, go ahead and read that. I suppose this is a sequel series, but Non Non Biyori is situational, meaning that each episode stands on its own as a mini-story. The events of Non Non Biyori Repeat actually take  place alongside the first season, not continuing from them!

I don’t always express favoritism or distaste in my reviews, as I absolutely abhor using rating systems for the purpose of discussion. But even so, this is among my most favorite anime series of all time.

I won’t try to convince you to watch it simply by explaining it. So instead, I will be sharing with you some of my favorite moments from Non Non Biyori Repeat, in the style of the highlights I used to do on this blog, which I will continue as the Spring 2016 season comes to a close (woohoo)! Note that these are only a handful of moments I enjoyed from this series and does not include moments from the first season. There are plenty more where that came from. These are 20 great (and funny) moments of Non Non Biyori Repeat!

Summer is over, and that means no more lazy days for some of us (yeah, I know). But before I start preparing for other things including the Fall anime season, let’s revisit some of the moments that came from a handful of anime from this past season.

This highlight review’s theme is Hero, thanks to this season’s Ushio and Tora.

Anime Review: Non Non Biyori

Standard

Of all the anime that are produced throughout the year, it is surprising to some what might be considered popular in the market.
