Renge Miyauchi (宮内 れんげ Miyauchi Renge?) is one of the main characters of the Non Non Biyori series. She is a first class student in the Asahigaoka Branch School and the youngest girl in the Miyauchi family.

Appearance

Renge has violet hair that is tied in two pigtails with yellow ribbons (the yellow ribbons were given by Dagashiya when she was five) and reddish-brown eyes.

Personality

Renge is a very precocious child who has a curious nature and a unique naming sense.

She gets excellent grades in school and has demonstrated excellent artistic skills. She even picked up multiplication solely based on Konomi Fujimiya's suggestion to use addition as a base for multiplying. She is shown to be friendly and affectionate and loves being around people.

Chronology

Quotes

  • "Nyanpasu~!"
  • "Rabbit pen, rabbit pen~♪ let's take care of the chickens~♪ Let's take care of the rabbits~♪ Let's groom them nice and pretty~♪ Then put it all together and... Dynamite!" (Episode 7)

Etymology

  • The name Renge is named after a type of lotus flower (蓮華).
  • "Renge" (蓮華, レンゲ) also means Chinese milkvetch (Astragalus sinicus).[1]
  • "Nyanpasu"
    • Nyan (ニャン) is the sound a cat makes[2]
    • Ohayō gozaimasu (おはよう ございます) is a common way to say good morning[3]
So "nyanpasu" may be a way to mix both words. The subtitle "meowning" comes from an attempted translation of them.

Trivia

  • Natsumi Koshigaya's nickname for her is "Ren-chon".
  • Renge is 117 cm tall.
  • It is shown that Renge is talented in drawing and can do multiplication just by adding the numbers in her head instantly.
  • Renge loves rabbits and curry.
  • Renge has smiled only twice in the first season.
  • Renge has got a pet tanuki named "Gu".
    • She sometimes prepares food for Gu.
    • She has calling sounds to interact with Gu. One is a silent one-hand whistle, whilst the other is a two-hand whistle to try and order Gu to do its tricks (although mostly unsuccessfully).
  • Renge had a tadpole shrimp named "Hirataira-san" (Flatty-san).
  • Renge's family owns a mountain.
  • Renge tends to end sentences with Non (のん Non?), which gives emphasis to her speech.
    • This seems to be a characteristic of Asahigaoka dialect, because Komari also used it when she panicked,[4] and said, "つい訛り出ちゃった" (I used the local dialect unintentionally) in Non Non Biyori Episode 6. Kazuho sometimes uses it too.
  • Renge likes creating her own songs that she is often shown playing on her recorder.
    • She got her recorder from Kazuho on her first day on 1st grade.
  • Renge was always seen to have a ribbon either it's tied from her hair or a part of her outfit.
    • She also owned a pink ribbon that tied on her swimming outfit.[5]
    • In OVA episode, she is seen wearing yellow pompom ball hair tie instead of her yellow ribbon.
  • Renge sometimes has strange thoughts when she sees Suguru, making her suddenly run to Natsumi to tell her what she thinks.
  • In Season 1 Episode 8, Renge placed first in a children's drawing contest [6], possibly with her drawing of Komari Koshigaya where Hotaru Ichijō and Komari encouraged her to submit her drawing to a drawing contest.
