When we first met Yuno, she'd just been accepted to the prestigious Yamabuki Art School, and it was up to her new neighbors at Hidamari to help her find her way in the big scary world. Now a seasoned vet of the Hidamari Apartments herself, Yuno's newest challenge is to help the latest arrivals, Nazuna and Nori, acclimate to life on their own. Of course, since it IS Hidamari, there are still lots of trials and tribulations ahead, and nothing will ever go quite as expected. But with friends like Miyako, Hiro, and Sae ready to lend a hand, there will always be a ray of sunshine at the end of every storm in Hidamari Sketch x Hoshimittsu.

Following the life of art students is probably one of the most boring plot lines I have ever heard, and I just want to let it be known that this is the least boring anime I have ever seen. This anime delivers some awesome belly laughs, and always leaves you with a feeling that "the world is your oyster" by ...

Sometimes, in order to make a good slice of life even better. You just have to go... wider.

It’s the second year with all four girls present; life is going along for Yuno and her friends. But now things are shaken up with two new freshmen moving into the apartments. As time goes on, shows change if they reach multiple seasons. Whether big or small, changes are present. This show is no different. On paper, the changes in the season help the show and make it the best season yet.

First off, we have the additions of Nori and Nazuna. They do preform ...

Let's talk about mundane stuff! Why only a 6? What is Hidamari Sketch?

I have watched all the previous seasons of Hidamari Sketch for one reason; SHAFT made it. That's it, that's the only reason I have. When I first started watching the first season of Hidamari Sketch I actually dropped it because it was too trivial and tedious for me, but when I then started over 6 months later I found it slightly alluring and quite charming to tell you the truth. I don't know why, none of the seasons or ova's are any different, they're all about the exact same stuff with some slight ...
