Story & Info:
Azumanga Daioh (あずまんが大王) is a Japanese comedy manga by Kiyohiko Azuma. The story depicts the lives of a group of girls during their three years as high-school classmates.
Azumanga Daioh chronicles the everyday life of six girls and two of their teachers in an unnamed Japanese high school; covering from tests, classes, culture festivals, athletic events, time spent traveling to and from school, group studying, summer vacations and the fictional theme park Magical Land, concluding with the graduation of the main cast. The story is generally realistic in tone, marked by occasional bursts of surrealism and absurdity.
It was serialized in a shōnen manga magazine from 1999 to 2002 and collected in four bound volumes. In May 2009, in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the manga, three additional chapters began serialization under the title Azumanga Daioh: Supplementary Lessons .
The manga is drawn in a series of vertical four-panel comic strips called yonkoma . The series has been praised for its humor driven by its eccentric characters, and Kiyohiko Azuma is acclaimed as a "master of the four-panel form" for both his art style and comic timing.
It was adapted as an anime television series called Azumanga Daioh: the Animation by J.C.Staff.
Other media: Several soundtrack albums were released, as well as three Azumanga Daioh video games.
Mitsugu Mouryou’s Anime Review
Azumanga Daioh is a cutesy, fun, entertaining slice of life comedy. The animation and character design is a little sub-par, reminiscent of Lucky Star, and like Lucky Star, It doesn’t matter. Azumanga Daioh is good fun, with a slow mellow pace, but the jokes are good, the story lines aren't bad at all, with good character development. I enjoyed it thoroughly, though there was no major conflict, between the zany off beat quirks of the 2 best friend teachers, and wacky antics of the overly ADHA Tomo and the highly ADD Ayumu Osaka, it should keep you entertained as well.
Azumanga Daioh, containing no blood, violence, or foul language is good fun for the whole family! I give it a 4.2(out of 10), funny, simple to follow, and ideally suited for repeat viewing even at 50% attention.
