Storyline

An animated series based off of the four panel managa of the same name, Azumanga Daioh is a whimsical, hilarious and very cute look at the lives of an ecclectic group of high school girls and their teachers at a Tokyo high school. As the series progresses, small bits of their lives are shown, slowly painting a bigger picture as the cast shares the ups and downs of high school life, revolving around a close-knit friendship and a lot of silliness.

Trivia

The title of the show is essentially meaningless. The comic strip on which the show is based was written by Azuma Kiyohiko, and "Azumanga" is an amalgalm of his name and "manga", the Japanese word for comic books. "Daioh" comes from "Dengeki Daioh" ("Great Electric Shock King"), the monthly Japanese comic anthology in which the comics originally ran. See more »

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.....Chiyooooo........OOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH
29 October 2004 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

This anime is a very significant and unique show. In other words, cool. I loved it. It featured a bunch of laughable and lovable school girls (and a few teachers) and with an anime with school girls, you'd expect romance, drama, and even that magical girl stuff from Sailormoon. Well. This one doesn't have any of those which is a good thing. That's what makes it great. Even though the episodes were kinda of short, it was so great and funny, that you'd want to see it over and over again. Recommended for anime fans, non-anime fans, and for those who are sick of Magical girl or harem shounen anime. Watch it. You know you wannna. I like that Chiyo and Sakaki and even that reckless yet cool driving Yukari-sensei.
