Anime is an illusion that hides reality from our very eyes.

If it weren't, anime would have no need to exist.
So reality is depressing because anime exists.

It's almost like a perfect end to the cycle of living.
The Japs themselves realize how shit life is, so they don't bring in new kids and sentence them to suffer through this existential nightmare. The problem is that this only furthers the depressive atmosphere by highlighting the decay of an aging nation.

Lighting.

Well, it helps illustrate your point that the real life photos are taken in a completely different season from the anime screencaps they are compared to, as well as having a cloudy weather when the weather in the screencaps is moderately clear.

Point is, if the photos were taken on a sunny summer day instead, the real life comparison wouldn't look as grim and depressing at all.

because we're adults now

everything in NNB is saturated with light because the protagonists are all children and perceive things that way

the right hand side is what Candy Store and Nee-Nee see every day

Most of the time background artists will just take a picture of a location kind of like what they're looking for and draw something like it. That way they don't need to worry so much about perspective and whether buildings or objects should be in a particular location and all the minor creative details it would take to draw a background from scratch.

Real things rot and are unpleasant.
One day we will be putrefied husks of what we are now, if not just dust sitting in a tomb or some basement (the two may overlap).

Anime characters only suffer such eventualities when the plot calls for it, some maintain their youth and smiles forever.

Anime worlds are full of hopes, dreams and happiness as expressed through the vivid motions and vibrant color schemes. Those things die the second you become an adult, if not a bit sooner depending on your life circumstances.

tl;dr: being real is suffering and comparing reality to idealistic rose-tinted fiction is a bad idea

Unrelated to the thread, but on that note NHK did a really interesting piece on how Inio Asano draws his backgrounds (among other things).
It's subbed and on youtube, here is the segment about backgrounds in particular:

Why is the weather always so shitty and unflattering when in these background hunt shots? Is Japan always like that or something?

The only time I've seen semi-flattering photography was from Cuenca.

buildings aside, seasons etc do have a large impact
you could have something like a hill look so grey like a cemetery full of death, then have another season green as all hell almost like it was shopped

Japan is one of the comfiest countries in the world imo. Whether it be countryside to smaller towns to big cities. I think Switzerland only slightly beats it in some aspects.

I've always been attracted to contrast of cluttered neon cyberpunk cities and quiet comfy and slightly abandoned rural sections of Japan. It's a very odd little country.

Because the subtext of Non Non Biyori is the fact that they live in a dying village. It's a kind of contemporary dystopian iyashikei sort of like YKK.
>>
Even though 3D is PD, I don't believe all 3D is equal. Some are worse than others. For example, even though Japan is a miserable country to live in, there is a sort of appeal to the cityscapes and landscapes that make it up. I can't really say the same for the United States, comparatively. Why are man-made communities in the United States so repulsive and unappealing? I can't put my finger on it.

I can guarantee you, when it is bright and sunny out, even the remnants of an old and moldy school looks appealing contrasting to the clear blue sky of a summer's day.

Looks like an overcast winter day, of course it's not going to look bright and warm.

Most anime and VN stuff copy from real locations. You must be blind.
