In the second episode of Sad Senpai and the Gaijin Kid, Stephen and Zachary check out the first episode of Non Non Biyori. It’s Stephen’s first time watching slice-of-life and he’s enamored by the utter lack of plot.
It’s not just the lack of plot that has Stephen interested, but how calm and relaxing it is. There’s no other genre that spends five minutes on the characters walking up a hill after all. That’s exciting! Or at least it’s exciting for these two viewers. It may not be that exciting for the anime fan that’s more interested in Shingeki no Kyojin.
If you enjoyed hearing Zachary and Stephen talk about anime for 22 minutes, you also might like hearing them talk with two other excellent dudes about video games for an hour each week over at Disembodied Voices.
