Plot

Hidamari Sketch centers around a young girl named Yuno who finally is able to get accepted into Yamabuki Art High School, which she has longed for. To attend the school, Yuno moves and starts to live in a small apartment building named the Hidamari Apartments (ひだまり荘 Hidamari-sō?) located across the street from the school. Once there, she quickly becomes friends with three other occupants at the apartments, including her classmate Miyako and two second-year students: Hiro and Sae. The events of the characters' everyday lives are shown as they attend the school together and get to know each other better. After a year has passed, the girls move up a year and two freshmen, Nazuna and Nori, arrive at Hidamari Apartments.

Characters

Hidamari Sketch

Hidamari Sketch main characters: Hiro (left), Yuno (center), Sae (right), and Miyako (bottom-right).

Hidamari Apartments

Yuno (ゆの?)
Voiced by: Kana Asumi
Yuno, sometimes called "Yuno-tchi" by Miyako, is a young girl and main character in the story. She has fairly short hair, slightly above shoulder length that is light-brown. She is also the shortest of the six girls, and her stature is the subject of many jokes in the series. She lives in the Hidamari Apartments, along with her close friends and neighbors Miyako, Hiro, Sae, Nori, and Nazuna. Her friends think of her as a very nice person. Yuno dreams of being a great artist someday. Although she is a skilled artist overall, she considers painting and drawing her specialties. She is constantly seen wearing a pair of black, cross-shaped hairpins on her head, which she rarely takes off. She is also an only child in her family.
Miyako (宮子?)
Voiced by: Kaori Mizuhashi
Miyako is Yuno's close friend, classmate, and next door neighbor in the apartment building where they live. She has very blonde, yellow hair and eyes. Her hair is especially beautiful and "mature", but only right after she washes it. She has an older brother who is a gardener, who is responsible for cutting Miyako's hair before she starts going to Olive, a beauty salon. Yuno refers to her as Miya-chan. She has an active personality and is always trying to have fun with her friends. Her exuberance frequently borders on the childlike, but she is undeniably creative. She is very spontaneous and claims the word "plan" does not exist in her dictionary. She loves to eat and has frequently asked for Hiro's leftovers when she is on one of her diets. She sometimes points out that Hiro may be gaining weight, which earns her a punch on the head by Hiro. Miyako's energy is frequently excessive and misplaced. Her rent is 5,000 yen cheaper than that of the other girls because her apartment is in poor repair, which is fortunate because she has less money than the other girls most of the time.
Hiro (ヒロ?)
Voiced by: Yūko Gotō
Hiro is a year older than Yuno and Miyako, living directly under Yuno's apartment. Although she tries to be a supportive senior to the girls, she tends to worry excessively about her weight, causing her to go on diets for periods while occasionally binging on sweets. A violent side of her will come out whenever Miyako makes a comment about her weight, diet, or eating habits, which always result in Miyako receiving a good beating. Hiro is not a morning person; it is very difficult to wake her up in the morning and, when she does, she will first enter a state of daze and utter nonsensical gibberish to the other girls before being fully awake. A close friend of Sae, she is one of her neighbor's principal sources of support when she is involved with a deadline or other crisis. She lived in room 203 during her first year, but moved over to her current room, next to Sae, in order to better take care of her. Hiro is a great cook. The girls frequently get together at her apartment, where Hiro will cook for all of them. She is left handed. She has curly, salmon colored hair that she wears in a double bun, odango style. Her hair moves on its own in the anime.
Sae (沙英?)
Voiced by: Ryōko Shintani
Sae is an upperclassman and good friends with Hiro. In the anime version, she has a younger sister, Chika. Her artistic specialties are photography and fiction writing; she writes fiction professionally under the pseudonym "Aya Tachibana" (橘 文 Tachibana Aya?) and enrolled at the school specifically so she could learn how to illustrate her own work. Sae, who is tall, athletic, and generally mature, has a playful side that can be at the same time enigmatic and cunning; she has a habit of giving Yuno just enough warning about potential problems for the younger girl to fail to avoid them. She also has a fondness for playing detective when faced with such anomalies as Miyako's apartment. She tends to get upset when Miyako refers to her as having masculine qualities. She also gets very uncomfortable when asked about her love life, frequently inventing a history for herself that even cursory examination would show to be absurd, while blushing furiously. Sae is also very shy about her feelings towards her friends and especially her sister. She is much more comfortable chiding and scolding her little sister whenever Chika comes to visit. However, on the oft occasion that she expresses genuine concern for her sister, her face will turn beet-red.
Nazuna (なずな?)
Voiced by: Chiaki Omigawa
Nazuna is a freshman introduced in the July 2008 issue of Manga Time Kirara Carat and the third series of the anime after a year has passed in the story. She lives in room 203. She has sandy blonde hair, braids, and long side bangs. She used to live in the neighborhood, but after entering Yamabuki Art High School her father was transferred somewhere for work and her mother followed with him. She appears very quiet, reserved, and has an inferiority complex. It has been noted that Nazuna is very popular among the male student body because of her weak personality and that she can be quite a klutz, which makes others feel like they can't leave her alone. Nazuna is very fond of Nori, since they are both first year students living at the apartments, and Yuno, whom she sees as an older sister. She is not in the art department, but she shows interest in it.
Nori (乃莉?)
Voiced by: Hitomi Harada
Nori is another freshman introduced with Nazuna. She is called "Norippe" by Miyako. She lives in room 103. She has lighter blue hair with pigtails. She is in the art department and likes to play with computers. Nori has said that her hobbies are Computer Graphics, HTML, and Adobe Flash. She is honest and straightforward. She is generally the most level-headed one out of the main characters and is usually pointing out the others' weird ways. She frequently has some sort of outburst if Nazuna is being too timid, and has been known to lecture and even violently shake Nazuna when Nazuna refuses to speak what is on her mind. She can speak in a Kansai dialect.

Yamabuki High School teachers

Yoshinoya (吉野屋?)
Voiced by: Miyu Matsuki
Yoshinoya is Yuno and Miyako's homeroom teacher and art instructor. She is buxom, exuberant, and a Cosplay maniac. So much so, in fact, that she will frequently wear incredibly complicated things that are at times truly inappropriate. She has a fondness for modeling for her class, displaying her latest creations whenever she can, and showing off in general, often leading her to be scolded by the principal. Moreover, she is shown wearing a pair of squeaking sandals in the anime series. It is later revealed that Yoshinoya still resides with her parents, and would often be criticized by them for not being mature. She is an extremely skilled artist and cares about her students very much. And, despite her apparent immaturity, she is shown to be a great teacher and give great advices to her students from time to time, such as the case with Hiro and her career path. When asked her age, she will answer "eternally seventeen". She has an younger brother who is already married and has a child.
The Principal (校長 Kōchō?)
Voiced by: Chō
The Principal is a thin, aging and balding man who appears frail, as he constantly shakes. Although he sometimes exhibits inexplicable behavior, when he appears it is most frequently to chastise Yoshinoya over her latest excess. In the third episode of the first season, it is also revealed that Miyako can do a frightening effective imitation of him. His name is unknown, but in one episode of the anime, Yuno was writing the names of people on pictures as part of an exam. When she got to the Principal, the whole class thought his name was "Moai".
Kuwahara (桑原?)
Voiced by: Naoko Suzuki (first season), Eriko Kigawa (first season specials, ×365) and Natsuko Kuwatani (×Hoshimittsu, ×Honeycomb)

Ever since, she has been trying to hide her feelings in Sae's presence by acting nonchalantly, initially declaring herself to be her rival, though she becomes a lot more bashful around her as time goes on.

Video game

A Nintendo DS video game entitled Hidamari Sketch Dokodemo Sugoroku × 365 (ひだまりスケッチ どこでもすごろく×365?) was released on February 12, 2009. The game primarily plays like a normal board game (sugoroku) with consecutive boards, each representing a month during Yuno's first school year. Depending on the square landed upon, characters may play one of numerous mini-games, experience mini-events—dialogue and sometimes imagery relating to minor occurrences around Hidamari apartments or the school, or encounter major events which play out similarly to the episode of the anime on which they are based. Points are accrued throughout the year to determine a winning character, and the points can then be used to unlock items in the extras menu.
