Is it me, or does the blue-haired girl look a LOT like Sayaka from Madoka Magica?

Nori? Nah, I wouldn't say she looks too similar, at least not more similar than any two characters from the same artist with the same hair color might look. The image on the official site doesn't make it immediately clear but her hairstyle is rather different from Sayaka's, and so she gives off a different impression.

Would make sense. The artist of Hidamari Sketch did the character design.

I am personally looking forward to the sixth volume of the manga and the fourth season + specials of the anime being released over here, whenever that'll be.

I know I've said it before, but my main criticism of season 1 -- and I still do like season 1 -- is its propensity for talking too much about things that, from their perspective, already happened (reminiscing about making the nameplates, talking about the shrine visit, and so on), but which we don't see for a random number of episodes.

x 365 reduces that quite a bit, thankfully, and Hoshi Mittsu puts all the events of the new year in order, while placing events of the previous year and the year before in different spots, but in a way that makes sense. Yuno gets a call from a graduate she met the previous year, so we get part of an episode where we see them meet; a part-episode where we see the day Natsume met Sae is followed by one where maybe there's the beginnings of a reconciliation; and so on.

I have to say, I like the various visual elements, the voices, most of the comedic elements, and the sweet moments.

I wish I'd continue to watch the 2nd season already.. these wide faces are too nice to look at.

Third season was boring, this will probably be worse.
