Hidamari Sketch Gets New Anime of Sae & Hiro's Graduation

posted on by Egan Loo
Anime announced at end of Sunday's "Chō Hidamatsuri in Nippon Budōkan" event

The "Chō Hidamatsuri in Nippon Budōkan" event announced on Sunday that production on a new anime in the Hidamari Sketch franchise has been green-lit. The new anime will center on the graduation of the characters Sae and Hiro. Ryoko Shintani — the voice of Sae — confirmed the announcement on her blog after the event; the live program ran so late that the franchise's official Twitter account apologized to the attendees.

Hidamari Sketch's story centers around a high school for the arts and the everyday life of some of its students. Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Carat magazine published the original manga by Ume Aoki (Puella Magi Madoka Magica designer) in Japan. Yen Press publishes the Sunshine Sketch manga in North America, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the four television anime series.
