It's time for a Hidamari Sketch thread.
I'll start off with the best girl.
I actually just found out, and now I feel even more awful ;_;
Why is the Hidamari cast cursed with tragic illnesses?
I just can't anymore.
Someone please add dead Yoshinoya to the third panel.
It hurts, indeed. I'm going to rewatch this show after I'm done watching Sore ga Seiyuu.
I don't have any sad Hidamari's.
As such, I'm happy that she made it to Yamabuki Arts
I can't deal with losing Yoshinoya-sensei. I'm supposed to be studying for an exam in grad school right now.
I guess it's all over, bros. Nothing to be done now but buy another bottle and listen to old Hidamari Radio broadcasts.
Realizing that Matsuki is dead has put my own mortality into perspective. I haven't been crying like many anons have nor have I been feeling this unending despair about it all, I've just laid in bed in the darkness dimly lit by my computer screen while I stare at the ceiling. Everything slowly slips away as I succumb to the realization that in a few years I could be where she is, cradled in the warm embrace of death, drifting through a peaceful blackness for the rest of eternity alongside the billions of the departed before me. It's an empty feeling yet it's not one that I can describe as being negative, it is a truly neutral feeling of calmness and acceptance.
>Will they actually kill her off
Nigger what? No. Shaft isn't going to deviate from the source in such a disrespectful fashion. Fuck you. Hidamari Sketch is the celebration of life.
>Yeah, I don't think you'll be seeing characters dying off in Hidamari Sketch.
Ume-sensei wouldn't be able to bear the weight on her conscience, the amount of suicides it would generate. I'm sure a few of us here underwent some pretty nasty alcohol poisoning from the graduation arc along.
Hidamari Sketch will never be the same without her
I didn't want to laugh at this, damn.
I just hit 3 plate squats today for you Yoshinoya-sensei. Please rest in peace.
So I'm not the only Hidamari fan who's now going through/languishing/avoiding real life in grad school?
I guess that would make sense, the first big wave of HS fans would be in their mid to late 20s assuming that they were in their teens during the first season/release of first volume during 2005-2006 and early buy-in to the late 2000s moé bubble.
I've also wondered if "HS fans are actually jaded alcoholics" is just a stereotype.
I have the AA tokens to prove that it isn't for me at least. Not like twelve stepping did me any good though.
It always gives me pause when I read the yen press edition of the first volume and come across the panel where Miya-chan refers to Sae as a tranny (with the added bonus of Yuno assuming that being a tranny is something bad).
I'm pretty sure a major publisher wouldn't be able to print something like that without getting mobbed by keyboard warriors.
They're channelling their life forces through the joys of Hidamari. It's one big altruist deed to keep the lonely NEET going.
It's all for us.
>As of June 2012, she was suffering from a rare autoimmune disease, due to which she decided to leave her job for an undetermined amount of time in order to take care of her health. According to news for that month, she was under her mother's care.
I'm in the middle of a Hidamari rewatch right now.
Continuing is going to be hard.
good, bullying Sae isn't allowed!
Miyako is the sunshine in Sunshine Sketch.
This webm is what made me pick up this series in the first place
And the sun looks dim today
I remember watching Hidamari for the first time
It was such a simple time
>I made that .webm
>I made someone pick up Hidamari
>I brightened someone's life
Happy me is happy.
I remember watching for the first time after falling in love with the manga, and Yuno. Was disconnected from internet for ages and had no idea it had been adapted. Those two nights were the comfiest in years. It was as warm as the source material.
She past on but felt happy to be herself, which is more than many people can feel good about. Bitter sweet. Goodnight sweet princess.
Everytime Yuzuko makes Yukari laugh, a child is cured of cancer.
Celebrate her life by rewatching Hidamari, that's what I'm going to do. Remember her for what she did, entertaining people, making us happy, and bringing some color into our otherwise desolate lives
Damn, man. I didn't even finish watching the first season yet and this happens.
It'll be kind of rough for the next couple of episodes I watch but I'm sure Yoshinoya's VA would want people to be happy listening to her doing what she loved instead of sad
God damnit, I have been putting off watching the Graduation episodes because i was pretty sure I would be crying for a full day after finishing them.
Now its going to be an entire weekend of tears. ;_;
You can stave off the madness a little if you think of Yurumates as the spiritual sequel in college.
The characters are much the same, just with different names, even if only Miyu acts in both.
It's not even a surrogate, it's placebo.
Google Translate, can't into Moon:
>I'm sorry for not write that I can not in good words. I would want to write somehow during today. It would have been soon offend me properly Koller in If you do not return to work Miyutan. I want to get angry.
>I'm sorry if I'm not able to put this into words very well. I just felt I should write something today. If I don't get back to work soon, Miyu-tan will get mad and yell at me. I want her to get mad.
don't hold me to that translation, I stole it off /u/.
but it seems accurate with my (very) rudimentary knowledge of moon.
Normally I would check it more but I'm tired today and I didn't realize she was dead until a few hours ago and its made me too sad to care.
>I've also wondered if "HS fans are actually jaded alcoholics" is just a stereotype.
I was a jaded alcoholic until encountering HS.
I still drink a lot, but my outlook on life is a lot more positive.
Although it's hard to maintain sometimes.
I think things like these are a really good indication that Miyu was a great person. As fans, we don't really have a real connection with seiyuus. As far as we know, their public images could be an act (see Aya Hirano).
But we get posts like this. Posts that were not out of a sense of social obligation, but straight from the heart. Not only Ume-sensei's, but there were tons in the other thread. I'm sure there are even more that weren't translated. There's just no way anyone who could get such an outpouring of warmth could be anything but an amazing person.
I was holding it in for the whole day but this is it.
Does anyone think that Miyu's death will have any effect on the manga? Though I doubt it, I hope Ume doesn't get rid of Yoshinoya.
First graduation and now this. What can do you do to stop the suffering?
>yfw yuno's seiyuu is also sick
why is life so cruel? Why does god hate the hidamaris?
Explain yourself you fuck
What's with all the despair this month?
>tfw Ume wants Miyu to get mad
There's nothing wrong with Asumi Kana except she's probably still mourning for Miyu. She was present in the Tamayura event on October 31st and November 1st.
Stop spreading lies you assholes.
>I'm an ignorant faggot who doesn't watch Hoshisora Hinatabokko
Watch the latest episodes and tell me with a straight face if she's sick.
Latest episode isn't uploaded yet but here are some recent ones.
Keep embarrassing yourself, anon.
it's hard to find a sad hidamari
You know, you guys could get depressed and obsess over her death
Or you could rewatch Hidamari and celebrate the fact that she lived a fine-ass life, however short
What would she want YOU to do, anons?
It's like life's joy has been sucked out. Yoshinoya was one of my favorite wides. Honeycomb 6 is one of my favorites, and Yoshinoya being both a good teacher and her nutty self made the emotional points that much greater. I wish I lived in LA, just to get a beef bowl in her memory.
Thanks to waifu2x we can suffer in HD now!
The suffering just doesn't end!
hidamari got me through the hardest part of my life.
everything was shit, the only thing in my life I could look forward to was an episode of wide each night before bed
Yoshinoya is a large part of why I made it through. My last exam ever is in a week.
I won't let her down.
I'm going to make this my desktop background so that I'll always be reminded that all good things come to an end at some point and that there's nothing I can do about it.
I thought I had enough booze to continue.
I was wrong.
I fully understand the "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" tweet that rolls by.
a.. are you me?
I'm past it, but there was a time in my life where the only thing that kept me going was knowing that I had another episode or two of hidamaris waiting for me before bed.
Hidamari Sketch saved my life.
RIPIP Yoshi ;_;
>I'm past it, but there was a time in my life where the only thing that kept me going was knowing that I had another episode or two of hidamaris waiting for me before bed.
I'm pretty sure it was like that for most of the people in this thread.
>turn to a different moeblob show for some solace
>she's the fucking okonomiyaki lady
Seems like God wanted to hear her cute voice in person
Is that indeed Ume drawing on a Cintiq?
She's very masterful. No guide lines, no skeleton, nothing to help with positioning. She just knows what to draw.
I don't think any pro that worked for 15+ years like her would need a skeleton for a simple composition as this.
There was a video of her working on a more complex illustration shown at her art exhibition in Ueno, she used plenty of guide lines there.
Yes. For if you didn't know suffering you wouldn't know happiness. Much like darkness and light cannot be known if you were born blind; the polarity is meaningless to you. So you cannot knowthe pole of joy without its correspondent pole of pain.

>fever since the beginning of the year
>eventually overworked herself doing Shimoneta and Prisma Illya this year because she was asked to
>she wanted to get married after her sickness
>she was the only Seyuu I cared for or picked shows up for, enjoyed everything she did
>I couldn't sleep last night because thinking about death n shit
>had a job interview this morning
I miss her. I'm going to sit though the saddest anime I can find tonight and get drunk. sorry for blogshitting this up but you guys are the only guys I can share the pain
She'd be sad if you let yourself down because you were thinking about her.
It's okay to be sad but don't fall into the trap of screwing yourself because you feel bad.
Some wise words from Satomi Arai
>I guess we're all the same
>All of us feel the same way
>Are you skipping school?
>Are you concentrating on your work?
>If we use our sudden parting with her as an excuse
>to not do what we need to be doing
>then she'd scold us.
>To live on,
>How she looked as she gave it her all to live on
>Struggling to open her eyes,
>When I spoke to her about work,
>her eyes would open wide
>"I can do it!"
>She didn't speak,
>but that's what she was saying.
>The work that she loved so much,
>I also do.
>If I get behind in my work because of my sadness,
>she'd definitely yell at me
>I'll do it.
>I can hear Miyu-chan's voice,
>just like always
>But you know,
>you still haven't
>taught me how to cook...
I don't have nearly enough pictures of Yoshinoya-sensei.
Me neither. I was never a big fan of Yoshinoya segments and yet thinking of Hidamari makes me feel empty inside today.
>I'm sorry that I can't describe my feelings into words. I hope to write something today. If I don't go back to work then Miyu-tan will angry at me. I want her to be angry at me.
>I'm sorry. It's always feel out of place when I put it into words. I don't think I can write for the time being.
Even fans can't accept her death. I can't even guess how Asumis must feel.
Matsuki Miyu was the one who nicknamed Asumi "Asumis" (アスミス) in the first place
longfaces, everyone? That's so unlike you.
That sound when Yoshinoya is walking and she talk. Is not the same.
>I want her to be angry at me.
It's the passive-disadvantageous, a tricky tense because it has no equivalent in English. It's essentially X does Y 'at' Z, and in so doing disadvantages Z in some way.
In this case, [みゆたんに]怒られ[る], Miyu-tan gets angry '[at me]' and it disadvantages me. Thus it's not just "Miyu-tan gets angry", but "Miyu-tan gets angry and expresses this at me in some way".
る then becomes れたいな, because [me] wants it to happen.
And so a decent translation would be "I want to hear her get mad at me again."
A Sixth grader taller than a High Schooler.
I haven't started watched Hidamari Sketch yet but the fact that the seiyuu to a teacher in a comfy Ume Aoki show died makes me really upset, it just feels wrong in every way.
I'm gonna binge watch the first season in Miyu's honor.
>But you know,
>you still haven't
>taught me how to cook...
They have to. Like Iguchi said, it's what she would have wanted.
Happiness is a lie, there is only eternal suffering.
>there is a chapter this month
I don't know how I should feel.
I could pretend to be happy. I'm exceedingly good at it now.
While it'd also kill me to have a whole season without Sensei, if Ume allowed them to deviate from the manga and have Yoshinoya move away due to marriage I think it would be for the better.
Even though she's mai waifu, I just want her to be happy, and a small tribute like that to Miyu would be nice.
Zestiria was developed last year, she only had two roles this year and we don't know if she was sick during recording.
I seriously doubt you can work your voice with lung inflammation
She wasn't forced to work 16 hours a day, mate, she's not an animator.
Please stop spreading bullshit narrative based on conjecture and misinformation.
>Yoshi is dead
>No more Hiro or Sae
Please kill me
Her bronchitis lead into pneumonia, and recording for a game is a long process. All dem grunts need to be perfect. Without time to properly rest and recover from what would have been a relatively minor illness, it's easy to have a simple illness can get complicated into something bad.
I'll assume the Tamayura movies will the last we'll hear of her.
The third one comes at the end of this month, and should have been finished fairly long ago to deal with distribution logistics. I'll also assume there's a more than fair chance that she recorded her lines for the final movie.
The healing is going to be tough.
You never had bronchitis? You can hardly talk with something like that, let alone act.
All her work was cancelled and she was hospitalized once her condition became serious.
3 roles a year is not even close to overworking and that whole thing was made up by /a/ on the spot.
She loved her work and she didn't die because of it.
For fucks sake the deeper down the rabbit hole you go the more tragic it gets.
What the hell did Miyu do in a past life to deserve this.
Decided to walk to the store to get snacks and forget about Yoshinoya for a while.
Put in headphones and hit play without looking.
don't worry fellow widebro, we're here for you!
You need something stronger for that, man.
I think it's time I get my first Hidamari figure
Should I get one of the Figma ones or a Nendoroid?
That's an intensely difficult and personal question. But whichever you choose, make it two.
They both are nice to own, which ever you like the most or even both eventually, I like to get both Miyako and Yuno so they aren't lonely.
As sensitive as her breasts
The Figma are more complete, though you need to buy an additional two Hiro since Nori and Nazuna are simply additional heads that come with Hiro and Sae. I suggest Hiro since its closer to their height in the show (She comes with the Nazuna head and tie while Sae comes with Nori). Either way, you're going to have a couple heads with no bodies if you want the full Hidamari Apartments cast.
The Nedoroids are incomplete, only having Yuno and Miyako but very, very cute.
I have all of them (Just need to get those additional Hiro to make Nori and Nazuna), so go with whatever you want. They're all insanely cheap (last I checked there's a Nendo Miyako for 2000 yen on Mandarake).
Anyone knows what the other HS's Seiyuu said about this?
Yuno, like this.
>Ich bin ein Donerkebab
Even that cant help with some kinds.
Acute interstitial pneumonia has a mortality rate of 60%+, with the only known treatment being a lung transplant and often strikes otherwise healthy people.
I would bet money she had something like adenocarcinoma of the lung though. The fever since the start of the year and frequent recurrent pneumonia both point to a deeper underlying illness, and that type of cancer generally happens in younger women than most other types.
Asumi probably won't be heard from for a week.
Ume-tente- has just been apologizing every day that she can't find the right words.
None of them are as good as Miyacchi.
They were planning to announce it at Ume's exhibition, but they decided to wait and make it a Christmas announcement instead. Hopefully they aren't postponing it again because of Yoshinoya's death.
Yuuko says that, in an ironic twist of fate, Miyu getting sick served as an excuse for them to get closer because Miyu felt more at ease talking about her disease with Yuuko, who had gone through a similar experience. The initiative came from Miyu herself. and Yuuko was initially surprised because, according to her, they didn't really have a relationship outside of work.
Then she goes on to talk a bit about the following 4 months after Miyu got in touch with her, which were the last 4 months in Miyu's life too, and express how she feels about Miyu and all. It's pretty emotional. Pic related, my face while reading it.
This just gets sadder and sadder.
Kana Asumi seems to be pissed that Miyu's death was concealed from her. She hasn't been out in public since that fan event last weekend and has not tweeted anything.

Life's not so bad sometimes.
