It’s no surprise that these days, I tend to enjoy the usual slice of life anime with a mostly, if not all female cast. Perhaps one of the most known school-girl slice of life story that publishes in the Manga Time Kirara Carat is Hidamari Sketch. It’s not too surprising since this is the first title out of many published in the Manga Time Kirara that received an anime adaptation.
If you take a first glance of the show’s poster image or one of the volumes of the manga, this might remind you of another show, Madoka Magica. The person behind these character designs is Aoki Ume. She is a mangaka known for creating cute character designs.
While Hidamari Sketch is one of her well known works, she also created character designs for Madoka Magica including some characters in Magia Record, and the main character for Kirara Fantasia, Kirara. If you didn’t know, Kaname Madoka is basically based on Yuno. Of Shaft both animated Hidamari Sketch and Madoka Magica. As expected, I enjoyed the first season quite a lot since it has a lot of funny and cute moments.
