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

Overall, this is a very laid back, slice-of-life type anime. However, don't let that stop you from watching this because this is an amazing anime. It surprised me just exactly how deep this anime is, and it really made for a good watch. Characters and character development is probably the strongest point in this anime - you will see a change in their personalities overtime, and personally that's my favorite part. The cast is great. If you can compare this, it's similar to lucky-star but less humor and a tad-bit of drama. Great mix.

Story.

Not too much happens but its 13 episodes, and we get to 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.

You could call this series "The Melancholy of Torako Kageyama" and not be far off. If you like Kyon, Mikuru, Yuki and Haruhi you'll probably enjoy Tatsuki, Ayumi, Suzume and Torako almost equally. Normally, Torako would be the the character in charge of slapstick comedy - loud, boisterous, and embarassing like Tomo, Himeko or Kana but here she shines. But Hyakko revolves around Torako no less than MoHS is centered on Haruhi, as a matter of fact if Haruhi were a "normal" human she'd probably be Torako Kageyama. In Torako's world there's too much to do and too many chances for fun and entertainment to read more

Recommendations

Featuring four girls going to the same school and having fun together. The girls from each show are also very similar personality-wise.
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.
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
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 :)
Its funny and Slice of life and torako can relate to miu.
Character are really similar especially Miyako and Torako or Yuno and Ayumi.
Both shows deals about ordinary life of four not-so-ordinary high schooler, while Hyakko is a little bit more "random" than Hidamari Sketch.
