The Non Non Biyori manga, illustrated and created by Atto, will come to an end on February 27, 2021, in the April 2021 issue of the Monthly Comic Alive magazine by Kadokawa. The editors of the magazine announced this news on their official Twitter account on Saturday.
Here is the synopsis of the manga:
Asahigaoka might look like typical, boring countryside to most; however, no day in this village can ever be considered colorless thanks to five students of varying ages occupying the only class in the only school in town. The youngest student is first grader Renge Miyauchi, who brings an unadulterated wit, curiosity, and her characteristic catchphrase, “Nyanpasu!” Then there are the Koshigaya siblings consisting of the quiet ninth grader and elder brother Suguru, diminutive eighth grader Komari, and the mischievous seventh grader Natsumi. The recent arrival of Tokyo-raised fifth grader Hotaru Ichijou, who appears overdeveloped for her age and thus naturally holds an air of maturity, rounds out this lively and vibrant group of five classmates.
The manga was launched in the Comic Alive magazine in 2009. It is also published in English by Seven Seas Entertainment. Atto’s previous work, Toko-Toko & Yume no Yume, are the basis for the setting of the manga. As of September 2015, the manga had sold 1.3 million copies.
There has been an anime adaptation by Silver Link as well, with the first season airing between October and December 2013, and the second season airing between July and September 2015. The third season will premiere on 10 January 2021, thus joining the list of the many releases scheduled for that month (a guide for which you can also check out on our website here). There is also an anime movie, Non Non Biyori Vacation, which released in August 2018 in Japan.
You can watch both seasons of the anime on Crunchyroll here.
