G.A. Geijutsuka Art Design Class
I forgot to blog about this underdog of 2 seasons ago.
It's both some sort of a coincidence and not that three painting-related Animes I saw I like all three. (And Canvas doesn't belong in this list) But unlike Sketchbook and Hidamari which are slice-of-life's, G.A. is more lively and has more actual things to do with art - think of daily nonsense that revolve around art/school life. All three share the same commonality of being originated from 4-coma though (that's why they are interesting).
SD characters with well-developed personalities, unsharp but artsy-looking background, no story but lots of plot, no fanservice but who cares.
We have been so focused on the evolved aspects of Anime, this Anime reminded me how animation should be like. Just fun and easy. It also reminded me of the times when I was studying painting/drawing, either parentally-forced or out of self-interest. It's not all fun and easy though. If there's one thing that I hate most about creation (of any form - picture, music, electronics), it's the long waiting period between idea creation and product completion.
This show makes it onto my rewatchable list, hence I'm recommending it. On a related note, Seitokai no Ichizon is also on my rewatchable list, but I guess this show is already well-known. It's great, for the wrong reasons.
