Posts Tagged ‘Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb’

Aaah, Hidamari Sketch. SHAFT’s rather long-running, heart-warming, relaxing series about a bunch of cute highschool girls doing cute things. I’m a big fan – it’s a perfect way of unwinding, with its relentless optimism, cheerfulness and wideface, and manages to be visually distinct through the fantastic use of various artistic techniques and motifs in the presentation. Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb represents the fourth TV series in this franchise and, let’s be honest here, by this point you fit into one of three camps.

The first: you’re a fan of Hidamari Sketch, in which case you’ll likely end up watching this at some point if you haven’t already. The second: you’re not a fan of Hidamari Sketch, in which case nothing I have to say about the fourth bloody season is going to change your mind on the franchise. The third: you have no real opinion on the series, because you haven’t watched any of it before and to which a review of the franchise as a whole is probably more worth your time (the tl;dr of that is: if you don’t massively dislike the cute-girls-doing-cute-things genre, check out the first season and know that each season is better than the last). So what’s the point of this? There may well be a contingent of people who have watched Hidamari Sketch up until Honeycomb, but aren’t big enough fans to watch another series, and will want to know if it’s actually worth their time. Beyond that incredibly small number of anime fans (of which approximately none read this blog, statistically speaking), this post will largely serve as a bit of a discussion on what I enjoyed about it, and how it fits in with Hidamari Sketch as a whole.

Pow, right in the nutbladder

So this should have been done a day or two ago but whatever, I was busy. Everything’s coming to an end though, and the next season ain’t that promising. A shame, I guess. Oh, and a bunch of subs were delayed.

Merry JoJomas!

Maybe it’s because it’s nearing the end of the season, maybe it’s because I have lots of course work to do, or maybe it’s because each week I don’t really have anything useful or interesting to say, but these posts are beginning to get pretty tedious to write. I’ll see it through until the end of the season, but who knows what after then, really.

Loveliness and hugs abound this week

So I got my Anime Secret Santa recommendations. Kure-Nai, Natsume Yuujinchou and Paradise Kiss. Not a bad selection imo, been meaning to check the latter two out for a while so it works for me. And they’re all single-cours! Meaning I’ll probably be able to watch all 3 before Christmas.

Feels moon, man

Kick-Heart reached its funding goal! This is a great thing, and I can’t wait to see the finished product.

In other news, my Yukiko figma arrived, but got hit by customs so I had to pay like another £12 to free her from the evil clutches of the Royal Mail. Grr. Either way, she’s a lovely figure with a great sculpt and better articulation than the Chie figma I already own, although she does her long + hard plastic hair limits the potential movement of her arms a fair bit. But the main problem? Her ‘smiling’ face looks more like she’s being super srs. Ah well.

We should all strive to be this rad in our day to day lives
