Hidamari Sketch is a gateway anime of the moest kind. It's a cute series, an open canvas of story and characterization that isn't very fast paced by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its slowness by adding in excessive Brutus faggotry and WIDENESS. The normal anon can see this as the miracle it is, and may enjoy it, drink to it or feel relaxed watching it, but all the while recognizing that the series itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain shaft.
However, these very aspects that try to smear over the shinbo of its core make it a breeding ground for lewd, perverted underageb& Noris who engage in every kind of lewdness both online and in the real world. The superdeformed characters all trying their hardest to look wide, the stacks, peculiar, colorful Yoshinoya cosplays, the whole living alone and everything about the Hidamari apartments fuels their escapist fantasies, while the lily-party character backgrounds, emphasis on Ume-sensei, and overall happiness of the series make it fit just right with the alcoholic drives of your average anon and his sense of unadulterated love towards his waifu. Exactly the kind of school that makes little kiddies and underageb& students pass the entrance exams right the fuck up.
Hidamari is basically THE series to attract the nicest anime fanbase known to /a/, which is why, regardless of individual opinions, it is the responsibility of every anon to watch the fuck out of this show and everyone who is in it, and ensure that new Hidamari threads encourage the widefriends to show their faces here.
