First time a Hidamari season was licensed before it went to air. Nice.

Yuno, obviously. We have seen her making STEW and I feel she's a responsible individual. Then again, Nazuna could surprise us all

I think the mangaka has thought about this, with a MogMog family restaurant opening close to Hidamari Apartments (Hoshimittsu special 1). There's also the all-you-can-eat buffet too.

OP and ED out. Characters actually look normal aka lighter compared to the PV. Decent songs; at least I won't be skipping either one.

Spoiler for OP:

I'm not impressed with the OP yet. Can't really get into the song, though that might take some time. The ED is good, though.

I do like the upbeat intro of the OP, but the tongue twisters are not really my thing. Fortunately, the visual matter (Yoshinoya-sensei and... trippy Headmaster) make for some of it. Hoshimittsu OP is still my favourite, and sadly this one doesn't come close.

The ED has a nice tranquil feel. I like the rather melancholic expressions of the cast.

My ranking for Hidasuke OP:

Hoshi x3
365
Honeycomb (Visual helps)
SP
Season 1

Actually I don't expect them to top Hoshi x3 OP in the first place so I'm fine with this.

Still the same as charming as it was before. I love when they just keep it simple like how it is. Yuno is no longer shy like she was. Is it me getting used to her seiyuu's voice or am I hearing a bit of difference to the first season's Yuno?

I'll take Option #3: Yuno is actually having character development.

Yuno voice indeed bit different in this season. Asumi Kana using voice version that more similar to Popura. Because she talk a bit slowly, it becomes different. But hey Yuno is teenager. Its not a strange if you think there is few pitch change in her voice after few years.

Hidamari x Honeycomb 01 - *Is Not An Afro

Much like To Love Ru, Hidamari has been with me for so long that a new season debuting, even if it's the first in a few years, barely registers on my mind. The novelty's worn off, but the warm and comforting feeling of being with friends you know hasn't faded. If anything, it's as strong as ever. Shaft is at their Shaftiest, with the opening and ending both having some beautiful shots, and Yuno and Miyako are getting along just fine. (Compared to Ann and Aines, anyway.)

Hiro and Sae were always like a married couple, but the married coupleness just shot up to like 200% with this episode. Natsume is eternally unlucky, but her chance will come one of these days. Nori and Nazuna are as fun as ever, and they're the ones who show just how far Yuno has come from the days of season one. Yoshinoya's costumes, the principal's indignation (what is it that anime has for alpacas?), they're all here. My favorite gag was the spy one, with the eyecatch that followed immediately afterward. Hidamari Spy looks like a lot of fun.

To be here and discussing the fourth season of an anime, something that's only happened once before for me, feels strange, and yet, it's a sure sign of success. I love TBS's lineup this season. It's so soothing.

It was great seeing the gang back, but it was also great seeing some fresh faces (other seniors). Hopefully the juniors go through somekind of character development as the seniors get busier as the school year progresses.

Natsume, poor girl ;_; This is your season, I can feel it! I love her tsundere moments because of her jittery voice; it doesn't get too high-pitched and thus annoying.

What do I expect in the future? More slife of life goodness and subtext!

It was surprisingly quick to tune back from the masculine, down to earth slice of life (DLoHSB) to a more feminine, warm-and-fuzzy slice-of-life that is Hidamari Sketch, the anime that made me a member here in the first place--SSX365 was a Summer 2008 anime, as you can see.

To me, this will depend on what storylines will be adapted this season,

The moment I heard "the" jingle, a big smile plastered itself on my face, like seeing your best friend after a long time.

Hidamari sketch is the perfect example of "If it is't broken, don't fix it". Everything is still exactly as I remember it (except Yuno getting more accostumed to Miyako being Miyako, which was a very nice touch), and I wouldn't want it any other way.

Ok, I do want Natsume to stop being so stubornly tsundere, but you know what I mean.

Also
Spoiler for Episode 1:


P.S: I want more Natsume, Nori and Arisawa!

Goddamn, look at that animation. Gorgeous, lol. SHAFT has really stepped things up in the period of time since Nisemonogatari. This season really captures the softness of Ume-sensei's art, which itself feels like it has levelled up her recent work significantly.

Anyway, I found this:

Right now, Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb went on air.

Did you notice it?
I was playing Hiro.
I could come back to Hidamari apartments.

I'm so glad.

Everyone's waiting until the last possible moment for me that I was told I won't work as usual this year.

Two of my managers carried me to the studio.

All of the studio's staff contacting with me put masks to prevent infection.

I got each "welcome back" from all of the cast of Hidamari.

Ume sensei was waiting at the studio, and said me "welcome back."

When I first said "I'm home," I was tearing.

I knew it, I always knew it,
it's really warm.
Quote:
To everyone who supported this blog, I am back.(*;_;*)
This is what I've wanted to say for a long time
Thank you for waiting for me
Thank you for praying for me
Thank you to those who believed in me more than I believed in myself

I wore my favourite one piece to the first day of recording
The strength of my body and muscles still leaves a lot to be desired, but I have passion, excitement, and the love of those around me this is my strength for now.
Made me tear up in the middle of a lounge at school in public, lol. You could tell in this episode that Hiro's voice was a bit subdued. I really hope Yuko Goto recovers well, and really appreciate the passion all of the staff pour into the series. Hidamari Sketch has been a special series for me ever since I stumbled across it (honestly one of my very top favourite SHAFT anime) so it's a real privilege to get to follow it again.

I've prepared myself with a couple of dozen extra nutbladders just for this, glad it paid off but I broke my yuri googles instead. It appears Shaft wants to blind me by spaming HiroxSae. I need to get a stronger pair for next episode.

I think this is also the first time I've seen school trip to Hokkaido. I've never been there before so it's really refreshing. When it comes to Hokkaido I always thought of cows and crabs but not bears and alpacas so I've learned something as well. Lastly, we even get a simulation preview of how will the rest of Hidamari residents handle each other after third years graduate. I can't picture Yuno as third year at all, her height isn't helping either. Great episode like always.

P.S. You know what's so exciting about new season of Hidamari? Guessing which episode will Chika made her visit. This time it's even better since there is also Arisawa senpai to look forward to.
