Synopsis

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!

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

Do you have nutbladder insurance?

I ask this because you might need to get some if you're heading into the 4th season of Hidamari Sketch.

To my extent of knowledge, Hidamari is one of those "under the radar" Slice of Life shows, which is a shame because it really is a great show. The show continues on with the girls' everyday lives at Hidamari Apartments and Yamabuki High School. Chatting, spending time with each other, going to school. This is pretty much what happens throughout the series. You might think, "Wow, that's boring," but it's the characters personalities that make each episode fun read more

Studio Shaft is an eccentric animation studio that likes being weird for the sake of being weird. Take a look in the HidaSketch franchise: if you read the original yonkoma, you will know how much original material Shaft included. They have also added their own eccentricities like adding pictures of actual food onto clips of animation.

And it’s freaking cute.

Now, it’s the time for Shaft to mature. Shaft has always played on the seesaw of seriousness and absurdity, especially in Bakemonogatari. HidaSketch was created for people who indulge in the heinous genre known as slice-of-life. When the protagonist, Yuno, appears, I have succumbed to the evils read more

Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb

Another fantastic season with the Hidamari girls. This season sees the most growth of all the girls and is a little emotional too. The upcoming graduation for Sae and Hiro is something all the girls are apprehensive about, but at the same time, very excited to see Hiro and Sae become something and live their lives successfully.

I honestly can't add much about how I feel for this series, after reviewing the past three seasons, all those words and feelings can carry over to Honeycomb perfectly. I love Yuno-chi and Nazuna, they're absolutely adorable. Nori and Nazuna, Miya-chan and Yuno-chi, and 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  read more

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)

Anime: Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
A marketing reminder that TV shows can have as much seasons as they want if:
- They have clear, specific and devoting target market, (or broad, countrywide, audiences, aka. everyone, which these two are not)
- They keep up with their original theme, but also adapt to seasonal theme. (Swimsuit episode, valentine episode, christmas episode, etc) Japanese shows do this very well.
- Their first season did well, but following season did even better, and keep improving. If the following season do worse, the shows are destined to end, most of the time.
