Non Non Biyori Repeat coming to home video in November
A school district with only five students? You sure wouldn't get away with that in the cost-consious U.S., but it's the initial premise of the anime Non Non Biyori Repeat.
A collection of episodes from that series, which originally aired in the summer of 2015, was a follow-up to the original anime series, which was shown in the fall of 2013. Both anime series are derived from the original manga.
Repeat will be released Nov. 8 on DVD and Blu-ray in Japanese with English subtitles.
Sentai Filmworks describes the collection this way: "Even though there are still only five students who attend the remote Asahigaoka Branch School, each one of the girls already has a lifetime of wonderful experiences in the carefree Japanese countryside. Some memories may belong to just one person, like Hotaru's recollections of her first day in Asahigaoka before she'd had a chance to meet her new friends. Other memories bring an otherwise sleepy town to life for Komari, Natsumi, Renge or even Suguru. From daily life in school, to unforgettable holiday festivities, or even simple adventures like learning how to make okonomiyaki, new adventures are just waiting to be shared."
