Just a note, right here:
Sentai announced today that it acquired exclusive rights to Non Non Biyori Nonstop,
Which means S3 won’t be on CR, which is interesting and probably a change because of the announcement earlier this year
Finally they said something!

Non Non Biyori Nonstop | OFFICIAL TRAILER
So much for Exclusive Rights !
Just throw in the towel Sentai.
You had a good run.
When can we expect Redo of Healer on FuniRoll?
- Episode 1: Sunday, January 10, 2021 at 17:50 UTC
- Episode 2+: Every Sunday starting January 17, 2021 at 17:35 UTC
Since the CR/Sonymation merger hasn’t happened yet, I would imagine the agreement that puts Sentai/HIDIVE titles on CR is still in effect.
I just looked at the licensing announcement. Sentai does have exclusive licensing rights to Non Non Biyori Nonstop. However, they then said in the press release:
It didn’t say anything about the streaming rights being exclusive–just the licensing rights.
Look at it this way, wouldn’t you sublicense to CR knowing you’d technically get the license for next to nothing then? and it makes sense when minus the Production costs of the BD release, any amount sold is pure profit, so ya I can totally get behind why they would do that.
Some people mistake licensing rights for streaming rights.
Looks like I’m one of them lol
I’m guilty as well in this case .
Though to be fair almost all of the PR’s say
The series will be available on select digital outlets in Blah, with a home video release to follow.
but only this and Redo of Healer mention exclusive rights at the start so from a reasonable point of view that could very well have meant the whole enchilada.
Though probably in Redo of Healer’s case everyone else was afraid of it .
Non Non Biyori Nonstop, Ep 1 (Sub), is live at HIDIVE
Toad walker, go!
