Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb
Good lord, not another one… I tried watching Hidamari Sketch before, but it was a bit too girly and cutesy for me taste. To think that this is the fourth series… This type of anime must be really popular in Japan.
The artwork is still very cutesy and childish. It’s not labelled as such, but I’m pretty sure that this is aimed more towards a female audience. I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with guys watching this, but surely there can’t be more guys than girls watching this.
The story, well… Basically, it just follows around a group of school girls that go through everyday life. It’s a given that all sorts of things will happen along the way, but action-fans probably wouldn’t find this even remotely exciting enough to watch.
I, surprisingly enough, recommend this anime to all comedy and slice of life fans. I suggest that you watch the previous seasons first, if you haven’t already, so that you won’t miss any vital information that might make your Hidamari Sketch experience any less enjoyable.
Plot Summary: Studying at the Yamabuki Arts High School has been a dream-come-true for Yuno, and she’s learned so much already! And not just from her instructors, but from her friends and neighbors who’ve become her second family and made the Hidemari Apartments such a safe and nurturing home. But as the day of her “big sisters” Sae and Hiro’s graduation draws slowly closer, it’s time for Yuno to start seriously taking on the same role for Nazuna, Nori and the other budding young artists who’ve entered Hidemari’s protective cocoon. And it’s also time to tackle some really challenging artistic assignments. That doesn’t mean there won’t still be time for fun with Miyako and all the others, but it’s definitely time to pencil in her plans for the future. And sometimes that means you have to put the art before the course!
