GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class

GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class

The students of the Geijutsuka Art Design Class study all the various fields of art, from sketching and painting to graphic design and photography. While the mischievous Noda is always thinking up new ways to have fun with her partner in crime - tomboy Tomokane - the ditzy Kisaragi is content with doodling cats in her sketchbook. With Namiko attempting (and failing) to keep the energetic duo in line, the quiet and mysterious Kyoujyu seems happy to observe the odd behavior of her classmates. Whether they are transforming a congealed lump of paint into a sculpture of a pudding, playing ‘color tag’, or making thought collages, the gang live their life to the max through both their friendships and their art.

Yurume's everyday life living at the Maison du Wish continues. Her neighbour Sae's strict little sister comes to live with them, and she will not leave until her older sister finally unpacks all the boxes and cleans up the mess in her apartment. Life around Yurume becomes crazier, ever so slightly.

The story follows Yurume, an 18-year-old high school graduate who has yet to be accepted into college. In an effort to study for exams, she moves to Maison du Wish, an apartment complex on the outskirts of Tokyo which is full of other out-of-school "rōnin." Maybe that has something to do with the rumor about Maison du Wish: no one who lives there passes the entrance exam.
