Fantastic OAD, well worth the wait! Really missed this cast. ;_;
Glad Candy Store is coming along, after x years she finally gets to go to Okinawa, hooray!

I am such a sap.
Well, you aren't alone in that regard Flower.

In the scene before you see him ride his bike to the store, they mentioned the store is 2 hours away by bike but the bro went anyways because he's just that awsome


As always great NNB episode, other shows would have dedicated thisepisode to the trip, only NNB would try to make an episode about preparing for the trip and pull it off!!

Seriously, just watching the OVA already revitalizes me.

Again this episode reminds us why NNB is probably one of the best slice of life anime and why Renge is such an awesome and endearing character. It is amusing and funny, yet without being silly or gimmicky. The warm and poignant moments are all so touching and meaningful without being overtly sentimental. Even if it does, it's still justifiable.

The overall plot is indeed simple and unremarkable, but show itself is compelling and inexplicable. I think Totoum hit it in the nose: Other shows would have dedicated this episode to the trip, only NNB would make an episode about just preparing for the trip and pull it off.

Late to the OAD. Dat DVD quality, lol. Ironically, the lack of definition actually contributed an old-school factor which enhanced the nostalgic quality of the show. It didn't impair my enjoyment of the episode any, but I think I'd still like to watch it in HD as well.

Renge's farewell scene to her town was indeed the highlight. I guess it added a bit of a theme/message to what I always thought was just a straight-up SoL show. Based on Dagashiya's words, Renge was afraid that the trip to Okinawa would forcibly change her world view. In the context of the series, I guess we could see Okinawa as not necessarily a symbol of modernity, but certainly luxury and exoticism. In any case, clearly a contrast to Renge and company's rural little town. The fear was that the attractions of Okinawa would erase Renge's (and by extension, our's, as the audience) appreciation of the quiet place she was born. On some level, an understated challenge to the very purpose of the show. I think that is what made Renge's farewell scene so significant (on top of the implied emotional weight). It was both an expression/assertion of the meaning of the show as it has been up to this point (set in the country), as well as a promise that something like a trip to Okinawa could/would not mark the end.

Incidentally, because I followed the main series on Crunchyroll, the OAD also marked the first time I've seen the OP and ED subbed. I'm not a big fan of nano.RIPE so that didn't change much of my reaction to the OP (rather, I experienced a somewhat comical feeling of "oh, it's this again"), but I've always liked the ED and wow, the lyrics really enhanced it for me. I'd say that was the second major payoff for me from the OAD. Now I'm actually somewhat regretting that this'll probably be the end of the time I spent with that song.

That's great news. Nothing beats reading real paper books in your hands. Something to sate us fans while we wait for the second season.

Of course not, everyone in this series is best character. Why would I hate any of them?
