A second season for the Hidamari Sketch anime series has been announced via posters at November 18's Chō Hida Matsuri (Super Hida Festival) event. The Hidamari Sketch x 365 anime project is planned for 2008 in Japan, along with reportedly more events and a one-year Hidamari Radio program that personality Kana Asumi (Hidamari Sketch's Yuno) will start hosting in January.
Hidamari Sketch is based on Ume Aoki's manga about a high school for the arts and the everyday life of four of its students. The first season aired from January to March on the TBS/MBS television network in Japan. The first of two special episodes screened at the TBS Anime Festa 2007 event in Tokyo from August 11 to August 12, and both special episodes ran on the BS-i satellite channel on October 18.
