Hidamari Sketch, Glass Mask, and Neo Angelique Abyss Licensed By Section23

Hidamari_Sketch_x_365Well, 3 more anime titles were licensed by Section23. Hidamari Sketch, Glass Mask, and Neo Angelique Abyss are all set for a January 2010 release.

Hidamari Sketch is more or less a slice of life show, which I like for some reason. So I will probably pick it up. There isn’t much of a story, except a girl named Yuno goes to the Art School she wanted to get into and she lives her life with her friends there.

Glass Mask is the story of Maya and Ayumi competing in the performing arts to be the best I think. I don’t know if this will be good or not, so I may skip it if it sucks and gets bad reviews.

Neo Angelique Abyss is another monster of the week show I think. Angelique is a normal girl until she discovers she is a purifier I think, and they kills these life draining monsters called Thanatos.

Over all, the licenses may be good. Hidamari Sketch is one I look forward too, but not sure about the others yet.

Full press release is just a link below.
