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 show was originally broadcast in four-minute segments every weekday on the TV Tokyo satellite channel. Each week's daily segments were reshown as a single 24-minute episode on Saturdays. The Saturday episodes also featured additional footage not screened in the daily segments, including longer opening and closing credits, a preview of the next week's episodes and in some cases a short prologue or epilogue, which accounts for the longer running time than that of the individual segments.

Quotes

Kagura: That Chiyo-chan really is cute. And she isn't well-known for nothing. Which is more than I can say for our school's well-known wildcat idiot.
Tomo Takino: Hi, I'm our school's well-known... who's an idiot? Why you, you big old, you Eternally-Running-Behind-Miss-Sakaki Girl!
Kagura: Yeah? So what! There's more brains in my behind than you have in your head!
Koyomi Mizuhara: [simultaneously while Tomo yells, to herself] Wildcat idiot is right.
Tomo Takino: How's that? I thought you stuffed them all in your boobs!
Kagura: At least I have boobs!
Tomo Takino: You *are* a boob!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.....Chiyooooo........OOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH
29 October 2004 | by au_law2001See 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.
