Non Biyori: The Complete Collection
has just moved to the countryside because of her father's job, but
there in the countryside she finds things are so small there is only
one classroom for all the grades and the most exciting place in the
village is the candy store. Though Hotaru is from Tokyo she somehow
manages to still fit in. Komari is oldest of the girls and wants to
be seen as the reliable 'big sister' type, but because of her height
she is more often mistaken for an elementary school student and has a
complex about it. Natsumi is Komari's young sister by one year, but
she is impulsive, irresponsible and gets into trouble. Renge is a
first grader and the youngest of the girls, she often comes up with
the odd games and activities for the girls to play, but once in a
while she stumbles on the truism of their friendship.
was a heartwarming slice of life anime. It is about 4 girls and life
in the countryside, that you don't always have to be in Tokyo, have
some giant monster/robot or the world ending to have to an enjoyable
anime. It is mainly about friendship, family and the simple things
in life and it makes you wonder how our modern/city life we worry
over so many silly things when you think about it.
1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image is among the best of a
very strong set of Blu-rays from Sentai of late, while the lossless
DTS-HD Master Audio (MA) 2.0 Stereo (with solid Pro Logic-like
surrounds) is among the top soundtracks on any of their releases of
late, so this would be one of my demo sets if I were showing why
Sentai has such great Blu-ray releases technically. Extras include
clean opening and closing animation and trailers.
