This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Non Non Biyori
This show takes place near Hinamizawa.
Some critics say this anime is too quiet. Yes, too quiet.
  • Biyori seems to take place in the present day. Perhaps Hinamizawa was renamed to Asahigaoka after its spate of, ahem, bad publicity.
  • Alternatively Asahigaoka is the Mirror Universe equivalent of Hinamizawa. Instead of making people crazy and evil, it makes them honest and kind. Nobody needs locks on their doors!

Natsumi Koshigaya is Ichika Takatsuki in the future.
A lot of alien abductions happen in the countryside so she might have been abducted by aliens. The two also share the same hair color, eye color, messy hairstyle, and uniform style (except for the glasses, but anyone can wear glasses).

One of the girls is a ghost, and it's up to us to figure out who.
Because every heartwarming show needs a Poison Oak Epileptic Trees, like Yuyushiki 's puppet theory and Yuru-Yuri 's "Groundhog Day" Loop theory.
  • It's Suguru, explaining his inability of speech. He choked on a rice cracker one day and Natsumi, unable to bear the loss of her beloved onii-chan, performed a satanic ritual to get him back. She may have had to sacrifice her intelligence to do so.
  • Or even worse, she (yes) made a contract with Kyubey. Coincidentally, in keeping with WMG tradition of "this character from Show X is related to this character from Show Y", the Koshigayas are related to Kyoko Sakura's family. (Just because one branch of the family converted to Christianity doesn't mean the whole extended family would.)

Kazuho is not really Renge's sister...
Kazuho is actually Renge's mother!

Kazuho must how somehow gotten pregnant during her final year of high school, and since she's already out of town for school, no one in town would have noticed (except for Hikage and the Miyauchi 'parents'). The Miyauchi 'mother' could have simply pretended to be pregnant until Renge was born.

Kazuho's depression (as evidenced by her oversleeping), lack of appearances (although mentioned) during flashbacks, and sharing the same futon at home as Renge points to this.
