Known for not being about much, Non Non Biyori is back this season with a second season titled Non Non Biyori Repeat. As expected, we have an absolutely adorable OP, featuring the cute cast of characters once again. The track “Kodama Kotodama” by nano.RIPE is a light hearted, up beat tune that works well with the equally light hearted animation sequence of the squad on their daily little adventures. Watch the video below!
The voice cast themselves work on the ED: “Okaeri” by Renge Miyauchi (Kotori Koiwai), Hotaru Ichijou (Rie Murakawa), Natsumi Koshigaya (Ayane Sakura), Komari Koshigaya (Kana Asumi). Animated beautifully and featuring the talented seiyuus at work, this tune is slightly more mellow but just as cute and catchy. Definitely recommend watching it!
