Ok, so I never thought farming in an isekai could be so much entertaining. Yes, first we had a pharmacy in an isekai, now we have a whole farm. It is really weird like this anime should not be as fun as it is. Isekai Nonbiri Nouka isn’t the deepest isekai of all time or anything, it is just dumb simple fun. And yet, it really does work for whatever reason.
So welcome back to another one of my mid-season reviews. Today we are talking about Isekai Nonbiri Nouka. An anime literally about farming in another world. Why is it so entertaining even though it looks like generic isekai 101 on paper? I have no idea. But I will try to answer that to the best of my ability. So let’s get started.
My Thoughts About Isekai Nonbiri Nouka So far…
This anime starts off very low-key. Our MC is dropped in the middle of a big forest, and the forest is famous for being dangerous. Of course, he doesn’t know this so he finds a big tree and slowly started building there. He goes from a small hole to a camp, to a hut to a small farmhouse, and slowly to an entire village in the span of like 3 episodes. This progression is really fun to see in each episode. I like the fact that there is no timeskip, you actually see the MC build everything bit by bit.
Now while I think that the majority of the appeal lies in the building part, I also like how the members of Machiro’s farmhouse also grow as the series progresses. He gives shelter to two dogs, who bear 4 puppies, one day they bring in a big spider who lays eggs too. After a while, the spider kids do leave but, the 4 puppies grow up, find mates, and have kids of their own. Machiro gives up naming them all at that point, understandable. Then we finally get our non-animal residents, Ru and Tia.
It is really hilarious how Machiro in his loneliness pretty much proposes to Ru. Later on, when Tia arrives, she even claims that she’s his wife, which is really adorable in my opinion. Then there are the elf sisters, who Machiro has been cleverly side-stepping up until now. I wonder how long will he be able to run from them. Lastly, the presentation of the anime is quite average. I like the art style but the animations and soundtracks are just alright. I don’t mind that because this is not really a combat-focused anime. So it works out.
As things stand, Isekai Nonbiri Nouka gets a solid 7/10. It is nothing new, but I recommend checking it out because it is really funny and entertaining. I look forward to seeing more of this anime though that is for sure. Of course, my views may change down the line. That will be all for now though. Let me know what you all think in the comments and I will take my leave here. See ya!
