Azumanga Daioh

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Summary: (animenewsnetwork)Azumanga Daioh is about high school life through the eyes of six girls with unusual personalities: Chiyo (the 10-year-old genius), Osaka (the resident airhead), Sakaki (the shy one prone to cat bites), Tomo (the loose cannon), Yomi (the short-tempered one) and Kagura (the resident jock).


Review: Yes I was totally behind on this series. I just finished eps 21-26 last week. I love Azumanga Daioh because it goes to places that other anime wouldn't - the pedophile Kimura, cats continually biting Sakaki. It was pathbreaking with its simple animation and 4koma-adapated dialogue. Nothing is sacred for Azumanga yet it'll delve into more serious topics like high school exams with ease, comforting the watcher of what is to come in Japanese society. A classic if there ever was one for the 1990's.

Final Review: A++
