Attending the Yamabuki Arts High School is Yuno’s dream-come-true, and she’s learned so much already—not only from her instructors, but also from her friends and neighbors who’ve made the Hidamari Apartments a safe, nurturing home. But as the day of her “big sisters’” graduation draws closer, it’s time for Yuno to take on the same role for Nazuna, Nori and the other budding artists who’ve entered Hidamari’s protective cocoon.
It’s also time to tackle some challenging artistic assignments. That doesn’t mean there won’t still be time for fun with Miyako and all the others, but it’s definitely time to pencil in her plans for the future. Prepare to be drawn in once again as the Hidamari magic continues in Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb!
