Earlier today, the official Non Non Biyori anime website announced that the series will get a third season. The site updated with a three-minute trailer to confirm the news, which covers the series’ history, before offering a brief confirmation shot.
The Non Non Biyori manga made its début in the pages of Media Factory’s Monthly Comic Alive in September 2009. The ongoing series spawned two anime adaptations, which aired in 2013 and 2015, respectively.
A feature film, Non Non Biyori Vacation, opened in Japanese theaters theaters on August 25, 2018. Shinya Kawatsura (Kokoro Connect, Sagrada Reset) returned to the director’s chair at Silver Link, with Mai Otsuka (Shakugan no Shana, Astarotte’s Toy) providing character designs. Reiko Yoshida (Bakuman, Girls und Panzer) was in charge of series composition.
Sentai Filmworks currently holds the rights to both Non Non Biyori anime TV series titles. They describe the franchise as:
When Hotaru Ichijo transfers from a school in Tokyo to the tiny little Asahigaoka Branch School in the rural countryside, she should be experiencing major culture shock. After all, there are only three other girls in the school, and none of them are even in the same grade as her. But she quickly finds herself adjusting to spending her time with first grader Renge and the Koshigaya sisters, Natsumi and Komari, who are in the seventh and eighth grade, respectively. The Koshigaya’s older brother, the only male student, isn’t so hard to get along with either. Even if it is 20 minutes by bicycle to the only place that sells comics and the video store is ten train stations away, there’s something about the laid-back lifestyle that makes her feel right at home and comfortable. It’s a big change from the big city, but there are still plenty of new adventures to look forward to as Hotaru learns that “home” really is where the heart is in NON NON BIYORI.
