But believe it or not, time has been passing, and Yuno starts thinking about what the future holds for her, her friends, and her art as graduation looms ever closer. The immediate future of the Hidamari residents, however, involves two new first-year neighbors - the shy, polite Nazuna, and outspoken computer whiz Nori! Do these newbies have any idea what they're in for?!
