I wouldn't go so far as to say that it's been ruined, as it was still quite entertaining to watch, but I do think that the new season of Hidamari Sketch suffers badly from having a budget.

A large part of the charm of season one was the bizarre backgrounds, the 30-second stills, etc. - the generally cheap techniques that Shaft used to great effect. Now we have lipflap and backgrounds, and I don't think it works as well.

Discuss, /a/?
