Sketchbook revolves around a group of high school students who are members of the art club at their school. The plot follows a slice of life style via the students` experiences at school through the club. The main character is a young shy, and quiet girl named Sora Kajiwara who goes through life at her own pace. She tends to look at the little things in life, and is often at awe of the more simpler things. Sora knows several stray cats around her town and has given them names.
