This show completely blew me away. Usually when Maceart suggests something to watch, it's some harem melodramatic crap or moe moe crap. But Hyakko is a different beast altogether.

Hyakko is about the lives of students in Kamizono Academy. The cast numbers around 20 well-fleshed out students, mostly high school students and two elementary school students. The series is fairly episodic, and goes into each of the characters one by one.

The characters make Hyakko golden. No other show in recent memory was this funny. The plot synopsis, a group of girls and guys hanging out in this high school, may sound like the most boring thing read more

Hyakko… I was actually looking forward to this one from the PV and the other materials I had seen. Needless to say I was greatly disappointed. I almost never drop a show before the tenth episode, but I am seriously considering it. Well, lets start with production values. The OP and ED are crap. The BGM fails to be memorable. The art is sub-par from what I expected, so were the BGs. This is a kind of short review, but I just don’t have anything good to say about this show. The story sits there… there isn’t really any memorable plot to be had. The read more

You can't judge this by watching 1 or 2 episodes... I've watched until sixth and even that may not be enough... But so far, it's was quite good with many hilarious and some heart warming moments.

It's about four girls (friends), all with different personalities and many events that happen between them. I enjoyed a lot of jokes in the series. Although it's not the most hilarious anime you'll ever see, it's certainly a great series that's worth watching.

Voice actings are great and are done by many recognized and popular voice actresses like Hirano Aya (Haruhi), Fumiko Orikasa (Rukia from Bleach), etc.

High school slice-of-life comedies are possibly the most common of anime. Dozens of them come out every year, and with a frequency that has only increased over time. Sometimes one of these school life shows does something special that makes them memorable and standout from their ilk, but usually they fade into obscurity, lost among a sea of similar shows. Such is the case with Hyakko, a generally enjoyable high school romp from 2008, that ultimately provides nothing outside the usual anime high school shenanigans.

The shenanigans are those of teenage trouble-child Torako Kageyama and the many odd friends she makes at Kamizono Academy. And what read more

Anime: Azumanga Daioh
Both are from a similar genre - slice of life/comedy, both are set round a group of girls who attend a high school and get into hilarious situations. The cast in Hyakko does eventually involve most of its class whereas Diaoh keeps its initial close group of friends, but both are hilarious and worth a watch

Anime: Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight!
Featuring four girls going to the same school and having fun together. The girls from each show are also very similar personality-wise.

Anime: A-Channel
the feel from A Channel's first ep is very similar to the feel from Hyakko. I hope they will be the same qua style in their slice of life genre since I really liked Hyakko :)

Anime: Lucky☆Star
Four schoolgirls and various quirky friends. Both involve decent plays on school-life anime cliches. Hyakko's humor is somewhat weaker (but less random), and lacks Lucky Star's otaku elements.

Anime: Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu
Basically MoHS is a science fiction version of Hyakko with a shorter main story arc. It, too, is about a high school girl determined to get as much out of life as possible, involving her friends whether the want to be or not.
