|Description:||There's manga and there's Azumanga, AZUMA Kiyohiko's unique brand of humourous manga. And then, there's Azumanga Daioh, a four-panel comic strip (well, most of them, at least) which, since it's serialisation in Media Work's manga magazine Dengeki Daioh in February 1999, has become extremely popular in Japan. Azumanga Daioh the Animation (Azumanga Daioh) is a wacky series about a comical bunch of highschool girls and their equally eccentric teachers. |
Just like the four-panel manga strip, each episode is also made up of a few loosely related segments involving the characters--almost in 'a-day-in-the-life-of' fashion--and lacks the kind of continuity you find in conventional shows with a more central storyline. In fact, the anime's pretty much based on the manga itself (though not always), elaborating on the stories that appear in the comic magazine.
