Yoshinoya pretending to be the principal.
Natsume gets to talk to Sae ALONE.
Nori wants new curtains, so Nazuna takes them to a store called I'm Home.

In other news, Japanese McDonald's has "Texas Burgers"

Miyako wants to plant stuff because she wants a side dish with her rice and soup.

Yoshinoya in Kouchou's room :D
Nazuna's choice in curtain meets Hiro's choice in toilet paper xD

And the ED animatino was.. wow. I like it even more than the OP animation already!

Ending was absolutely adorable.

Actually, the entire episode was absolutely adorable. I hope Nazuna gets used to having such nice senpai soon.

Also XD Yuno...."Hmm...if this was a shoujo manga... *takes Nazuna's hand*".

asdf is halfway to tsubasalover level.

I thought it was great seeing Natsume again, there's just something about her that makes me like her. Nazuna is still being Italian adorable and I hope those tomatoes do grow. <3

Classic Miyako. Classic Yuno awkwardness is awesome too.

I hope this show doesn't decrease in quality. I just love this anime!

The ED was great, the Italian was cool, and the chainsaw Miyako was BURLY AND MANLY.

Yuno for 100 Yen! - SOLD!!

What a fantastic episode, I laughed a lot again. OP and ED are amazing every time, too.

Another great episode. This season might become my favourite.

Even after 2.5 seasons ☆☆☆ is great to watch, I have now accepted Nori and Nazuna as part of the group, I want a 4th and a 5th season.
In the meantime the 4th volume of the manga should be arriving soon.

Very good episode. I applaud Hidamari for being able to keep its awesomeness throughout so many seasons. Most anime start to decrease in quality by a lot in just the second season, but not Hidamari.

For some reason though, I didn't find the gardening part very interesting. I was never interested in gardening, so I was afraid for a moment they will spend too much time on how to garden. Thankfully, they didn't.

But the best part of the episode, though, was undeniably the new ending. I love, and it's already my favorite ending of all three seasons (both the song and animation).

Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.

I know how you feel, Nitre. When I see the colorful water begin to fill the tub, it's a sinking feeling (no pun intended). :P

Now this episode really brought back this season for me. I was beginning to doubt whether the third season could live up to the high standards the second one had set for me, but I like this one even more! I'm very happy that we finally have OP and ED animation, as well as the same charming quality that attracted me to Hidamari Sketch in the first place.

I am very much looking forward to more Hoshimittsu. <3

Really loved this episode, very funny and cute. Hopefully, they can keep this up throughout the whole season.

Yuno always seem to have a bubble bath at the end of every ep.

Every time i see that bath bomb, it's always far too soon.


Whenever that comes out, I'm like "nooooo, i want moaaaaar"

Anyway. Like the people here have said, Hidamari is absolutely awesome and does not decrease in quality season after seasons. I definitely love it!

i didn't think this episode was particularly gd~ at least compared to the rest of the episodes...
there weren't much interactions between the newcomers and the original tenants of Hidamari, which i think is vital for the newcomers to truly become part of Hidamari apartment. at the moment, the gap between kouhai and sempai feels a bit awkward so i hope they patch it up soon and become a big family~

I am, however, very glad that they changed the ending sequence. It looked brilliant~
I would have been so hyped up if the op and ed were like them to begin with...

Way too adorable!

And if anyone was wondering or is unfamilliar, SHAFT will most likely clean up the animation come the DVDs, just like past seasons! example:

More of a bath with bath salts. Anyway, it is usually Yuno, for whatever reason, though Hiro, Sae, Miyako, and even Yoshinoya-sensei have all had a turn. Not counting the one where they each sing a line from the first season OP, of course. I was thinking maybe Nori and Nazuna would each get their turn closing out the episode like that, but it was not to be. Maybe the fourth season I'm hearing about will do it. Perhaps Natsume, Kuwahara-sensei, and the landlady, as well, who knows.

So I guess... she does some things the same every year, despite what the principal tells her.

It was too early to breathe a sigh of relief! (Seriously, wait 'til a little while after the door closes or something! It could be a trick, sure, but it's a better indicator than nothing!)

No, no, no, not "I-'-m H-o-me", it's "A-i-mu Ho~mu"! ;)

I think the subtitler(s) worked "ome" into the ol' muscle memory; they have Nazuna saying "Maybe I should get ome."

"Stationary"? Wrong homonym, people...

Heh! Yuno and Nori hanging off of "Jimotti-san"'s arms!

Yyyyeah, they should probably run it by Hiro and Sae; they're two-thirds of the ones with the privilege of using the yard. Nori already seems fine with it, at least.

How do you not get dirty fingers doing that without gloves?

I've found that all the ending songs so far are great to play when driving.

The landlady is such a pro at manipulating others to get what she wants in the most subtle way. Once you realize what she's doing, it's already too late haha XD

Oh my, they went past Nazuna's old house and playground on their way to I'm Home, I wonder if she misses it. Well, we'll find out I guess.

And this was another great episode I like how they went shopping it was very funny.
Other two girls are slowly integrating themselves into the group which is fine (but still, Nazuna little reminds me of Yuno, and Nori of Miyako when they were in their first year).
