The media-distribution website Crunchyroll has announced on Thursday that it will start streaming the Sketchbook ~full color'S~ high-school slice-of-life anime series at 6:00 p.m. PDT. According to Crunchyroll, the anime will be available in the United States, American Samoa, U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, and Canada.
The anime adapts Totan Kobako's four-panel Sketchbook manga about a high school art club. Sora Kajiwara (Kana Hanazawa) is a shy but artistically talented girl who joins the club and meets many colorful and eccentric people. Director Yoshimasa Hiraike (Kaleido Star, Solty Rei, Working!!) oversaw the animators at Hal Film Maker, and Toradora! and true tears' Mari Akada supervised the scripts. The series aired in Japan from October to December of 2007.
