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.

Azumanga Daioh
This is one of my favourite anime, mainly because this story has nothing to do about mechs, magic, fighting etc.
It has a baisic story line about 6 highschool girls going about their everysday life till graduation.
The best thing is how all the characters are different;
Chiyo-chan, a cute 10 year old genius girl.
Sakaki-san, tall and cool but likes cute things.
Osaka, slow and dumbwited but she has her moments and unique way of thinking.
Yomi-chan, smart and a show-off but the most "normal" person in the group.
Kagura-san, sportive and competative (Sakaki-san's "rival").
Tomo-chan, probably the "crazyest" of the whole group, very funny (she has to be Yukari-sensei's daughter or sister coz the are both so alike in personality)
The teachers are funny too, (shame there wasn't enough of Yukari-sensei)

Azumanga Daioh
Azumanga Daioh is a fairly recent anime that constitutes 6 high school girls and their travels up too graduation. That is the entire plot.

The animation is simple, yet, it works very well for the story presented. The story could almost be equated to Seinfeld as this anime is one of everyday occurances and situations in high school. No boyfriends, no need to save the world, nothing of that sort is in there.

Humor abounds in this anime!! Make sure you pay attention closely however, as many jokes are very grounded in Japanese culture and it would take some reading into to get some of the just the naive American.

Soundtrack - Very Cool!! Also simplistic in its style. The music blends wonderfully into the back ground and definitly adds to the experiance.

Overall this anime has quickly become one of my very favorites. Not recomended for under 18, it won't be as funny as you need to see this anime right out of high school or college. Parental rating is definitly G, almost nothing objectionable. Very highly recomended!!!!!

so so lame... just a bunch of crappy slapstick jokes (slayers next does it much better) and they are just repeated to death... very childish as in stupid/silly
much funnier animes like akazukin cha cha which is childish and silly at times but it is HILARIOUS.
