Both these shows are pretty chilled out comedies that follow a group of schoolgirls as they go about their ordinary lives. The comedy is pretty similar in each, the pace is equally relaxed and really, if you're a fan of these schoolgirl comedy shows then i see no reason why these wouldn't appeal to you.

These are both slice o'life comedies with cute characters. Both are relaxing and easy to watch at any pace. If you liked one cause it put a smile on your face and/or makes you laugh the other should do the same thing.

Non Non Biyori has a more peaceful zen kind of feel do to its setting and music, whereas Kinmoza is a bit more uppity with its cutesy songs and sometimes hyperactive characters. Both shows are really cute and fun to watch if you like the genre.

Nichijou - My Ordinary Life

Nichijou - My Ordinary Life

Yuuko, Mio and Mai are regular high school girls who lead a normal everyday life. However, with bizarre explosions causing random objects to rain down on their heads, lunch turning into an epic battle between girl and wiener, and students riding to school on goats, their lives are anything but ordinary. Meanwhile android Nano spends her days wishing she were a normal human, but keeping house for her creator, the playful and immature child genius Hakase, dealing with talking cat Sakamoto, and trying to keep a hold of her multitude of easily-detachable body parts, her dream is far from a reality...

Renge's humour reeks of Nichijou's style. Both animes are about the everyday life of schoolgirls and they are similar, though the differences in the environment (for Non Non Biyori - the countryside, and for Nichijou (most of the time) - the city).

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

Both are pretty random when you think about it, in both animes the characters end up in weird situations. They are both very lighthearted and are both very good to watch after a more serious series. The characters are pretty similar in a way, for instance Yuuko has a slightly unusual way of saying hello, which is a bit like Renge. This point is quite small though, anyway I say if you liked one you should like the other!

Strawberry Marshmallow

Strawberry Marshmallow

Ahh, the life of an elementary school student. Though Chika, Matsuri, Miu and Ana should focus on schoolwork, they’d much rather have fun instead. Whether it’s outings with 20-year-old-chain-smoker Noboe, holding each other hostage or learning to speak English with Ana’s foreign-born skills, there’s never a dull moment in the life of the girls. Join this cute quartet as they do cute (and often devious) things in cute and quirky ways!

Non Non Biyori and Ichigo Mashimaro are the epitome of the well-known "cute-girls-doing-cute-things" subgenre. In both shows there is no real story to tell, what we're seeing instead are bits and pieces of the daily lives of the main characters. And they're both fascinating. IM is definitely the more cutesy of the two, while NNB manages to be just as funny, and maybe slight more charming. Still, they're both great fun to watch so I highly recommend them if you're into that kind of anime.

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

Cute girls doing cute things appear to be popular these days, and both of these series has this trope. They also contain a similar spectrum of character types, the enegetic one, the one who has to deal with the enegetic one, the younger sister etc. So I recommend if you enjoyed one you should enjoy the other xx

Both series are set in the countryside. Both have similar atmosphere and relaxing slice of life moment. Both also have some cute comedy that'll make you smile every episode.

Both series are about country life, with quite a few kids. They are both fairly episodic and very cute.

Both Slice of life stories with comedic and happy scenerios. Both focus on an all female group in various grades and minimal adult interaction with a laid back feel. No rush to the end.

DerKizer DerKizer says...

Both are sufficiently moe slice-of-life shows featuring middle/high school age girls with one character who is significantly younger than the rest yet acts quite mature and stoic (Renge in Non Non Biyori and Chino in Is the Order a Rabbit?). Both series also feature pleasent and well drawn backdrops for the characters to move though and have the same laid back atmosphere.

Both are very slow paced slice of life anime that follow a group of school girls who live in a small, tight-knit community. They're both pretty relaxing, indeed nothing happens at all for large spells in each, but if you found one enjoyable then the other will be worth a watch. 

Yuyushiki

Yuyushiki

Yui, Yukari and Yuzuko have just entered high school, eager to have a great time. They quickly become the sole members of the Data Processing Club, using the computers frequently to look up information and find interesting videos. Whether they're debating the merits of sauce on curry bread, trying to determine how some women manage to have huge breasts or dealing with the sweltering heat, these three friends will also manage to have fun in the process.

While these shows may not be set in the same location, have similar themes or have the same kind of pacing, i think the fact that both shows follow a group of young schoolgirls as they have many comedic interactions is more than enough to recommend these shows together. 

Yuyushiki is a little more fast paced, and a bit more random, but if you enjoyed one of these shows comedy style then the other should hold your attention. Just be aware that Non Non Biyori is considerably slower paced than the former, even if both can be pretty relaxing for the genre. But lets face it, people who enjoy one moe comedy tend to enjoy most others to some degree, so give the other a go if you've seen one of them!

Silver Spoon

Silver Spoon

When Yuugo Hachiken enrolled at Ezonoo, an agricultural high school, he had no idea what he was getting himself into. While his classmates revel in the barnyard chores and hard labor, eager to gain skills for their careers, Yuugo is challenged and sometimes downright horrified by the things he’s having to learn, whether he’s corralling stray cows, learning the shocking truth of where chicken eggs come from, or even getting comfortable with riding a horse! Alongside peers such as the lovely Aki, Yuugo will learn all he can about agriculture, making close friends in the process.

Both titles show a life on country. While in Non Non Biyori you have slow-paced anime showing everyday life of small group of students, you may experience more action in Silver Spoon with comedy elements which will lead you to burst into laughter.

Lucky Star

Lucky Star

In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.

Non Non Biyori is like Lucky Star as directed by Miyazaki. Both are about the intimate, quotidian interests and activities of schoolgirls and their interactions across grade levels. Both of them lack the intrusions of high comedy, sight gags, and flights of fantasy as notable in Azumanga Daioh and Nichijou. Lucky Star is significantly nuttier than Non Non Biyori, which is as much an ode to the quiet country life as it is a slice-of-life drama.

Hanasaku Iroha

Both animes picture the lifestyles of schoolgirls in the countryside, instead of in the big city. Although Hana-Saku Iroha is more dynamic and Non Non Biyori more slow-paced, I think if you have a liking to the one, you'll be interested in the other as well.
