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 Hidamari 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!

Graduation is something we all think of and experience in our lives. It's a sad, yet exciting moment that brings us to the world of jobs and self support. In this season, Sae and Hiro are in their third year and you can feel the emotion they feel as they go through the year and start to think of their future.

Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb, the fourth installment of the Hidamari series and in my opinion the best one. The comedy is stepped up and it brings all around more warmth and makes you feel happy, yet has a serious tone about the situation and feelings read more

With a long-running manga series, three anime adaptations, and internet memes derived from its distinctive art style, it's hard not to recognize Hidamari Sketch as one of the more prominent slice of life titles. After so many episodes, though, one can't help but worry that the formula might start to turn stale. Thankfully, Honeycomb is not a victim of this pattern. This is Hidamari Sketch in its most complete and perfected form, and considering the high standard already set by the series, that is commendable indeed.

Taking place during Yuno and Miyako's second year of high school, Honeycomb is a loose continuation of the previous read more

How can they make countless sequels without being Dragon Ball or Pokemon? By being genuinely funny and stay true to the audience, of course.

Anime revenue comes a lot from ads, but a lot more from DVD, Blu Ray, and even miscellaneous goods like figurine (not the case with this two though). This two show release constant stream of stuff that are, guaranteed, to have some niche buying their DVDs. No marketing magic here, just being constant and know your own niche.

Beside similarities that are marketing-related, stuffs like THE FEEL IS SIMILAR, THEY BOTH HAVE GIRLS IN IT, are being repeated for eternity in recommendation area so I shall refrain from doing so.
This is related because both shows are extremely relaxing to watch. It's comedy but it doesn't just focus on that, it's the extremely likeable characters that stand out.
So if you had a bad day or just want to relax from some sad Anime or one with a lot of Action, this one should be a good watch.
(This does also inculde every other season of Aria or Hidamari Sketch)
