For some reason, there exist a lot of anime series involving art students, aspiring artists, or artists in the industry. (Bakuman, Hidamari Sketch, and Honey and Clover come to mind). Why exactly is art such a popular topic? Perhaps it’s because the brains behind most anime are artists themselves. Perhaps it’s because mangaka like drawing a lot. (Go figure). Or perhaps it’s something a bit more basic than that… After all, there’s something to be said about the joys of sitting down and drawing whatever strikes your fancy. Sketchbook Full Color’S, a nostalgic, rose-colored window into the experiences of a small high school’s art club, strives to bring such simple joys to the anime-viewing audience.
