Non Non Biyori, AOTY Edition


Bitches, you’ll sit down and relax your bones to the point of “Holy crap, I’m so chill right now.” while looking at loli and tanuki. This show is so fucking badass. It’s definitely gonna be the sleeper hit that everyone is going to pay attention to. Otherwise the skies will burn of vengeance and color your world into a velvet blood, while packing your intestines into lust wrappings. Get ready for the weakest injection of moé this season with Non Non Biyori, all of you assholes. Every single one of you. Suppositories will be a viable alternative for you stronk humans with accepting butts. I’m calling it here. Non Non Biyori: Anime of the Year 2013.

The last paragraph is a bit over-the-top. I hope you’ll pardon my extreme hyperbole and just let it slide. This show is about little girls that make you feel good. (Go ahead. Get it out of your system. Yes, innuendo.)

Warning: this show does not contain manliness, complex personality problems, drama, male character development, or plot. Side effects include ruptured nutbladders and/or drowsiness.

But if you’re like me, you’ll lap it up like the natural pervert we all are. It has everything on the list we care about.

  • Loli? Check.

Okay, fine. I’m also watching it because of Asumi Kana. I’ve always been the kind to at least give a show a chance due to favorite seiyuu taking part. This show is seriously slow paced. It didn’t achieve very much in the first episode. Segments segue rather suddenly. Very small amount of frames dedicated to superfluous little details, if at all. I’ve mentioned something similar in my last post about Yuushibu. We can assume that Silver Link, the studio producing this show, is holding their cards conservatively. I do find the token loli, Miyauchi Renge, a little more enjoyable with that eye shape, instead of that typified almond shape that’s synonymous with innocence. She’s cutely innocent in the manner that her reality will occasionally get crushed via her interaction with the transfer student, Ichijo Hotaru. (Yes Renge-chan, you do live in the countryside.)

It’s already relying on long comedic timing for humor. I’m pretty hopeful though. Mayhaps it’ll ramp it up once we’re used to the mood and atmosphere they spent an entire episode setting up.

The animation is rather wobbly in some areas. Quite. Mostly in the boob area and hair swaying. This show for some reason is tossing in an extra frame or three for minor details that make it seem like they want to be the next GoHands. I’ve got nothing against it. But it is the studio that brought us Minami-ke (Seasons 2 and 3) and Shuffle. I’d be a little wary of the animation quality. Sometimes moments of sakuga come through, but are merely a few seconds of it on an animation segment that barely needs it. Small things like unique mouth shapes for vowel sounds, hair flips, the newscaster pulling off a sticky paper. Hell, just look at the opening action sequence! “Look! Breasts affected by gravity!” is what that was. Which is slightly unfortunate, because that’s a demerit since it’s never good for our expectations.

Oh well. I lol’ed at the obvious Star Trek reference. I”ll probably be able to enjoy the show simply based on awkward situations from Fino’s non-human behavior. The “rub my butt” scene and the grandiose demon cashier bit were silly. If the show keeps those sorts of scenes coming, I’ll keep watching. The voice acting could use a bit more work though.

Man. What a lukewarm reception to the 2013 Anime Fall Season. Can you blame me? It’s a little too obvious which ones people are going to gush over. Maybe this time I’ll try covering the odd ones out there.

Go watch Coppelion if you’ve played S.T.A.L.K.E.R. or Fallout 3. Dat post-production radiation color scheme.
