The Ayanoi High School features the Geijutsuka Art Design Class (GA) that focuses on the arts. Five close friends — the energetic "hime"-prankster Noda Miki; the level-headed, cynical Nozaki Namiko; the intelligent, observant, and kind Oomichi Miyabi; the lively and mischievous tomboy Tomokane; and the curious, innocent, glasses-wearing Yamaguchi Kisaragi — attend this class with great enthusiasm, learning about the many art techniques. Every day seems to pose a new and interesting challenge, be it struggling with the latest assignment or when dealing with the daily strangeness of school life.

One of the problems with anime these days is the tendency for studios to stick to formulae, and to capitalise on what has gone before (also known as jumping on the bandwagon). It's unfortunate then that GA: Geijitsuka Art Design Class is a victim of this mindset, especially given the subject matter and the potential for experimentation.

Originally a yonkoma (4-koma), manga by Kiyuzuki Satoko, the anime adaptation is actually based on the 2005 serialisation that was published in "Manga Time Kirara Carat", and while the series is very much aimed at the moe market, it has benefitted from the directorial talents of Sakurai Hiroaki (Di-Gi-Charat, read more

"Hitosu, Hitosu, Hitosu, Hitosu", if you watch the opening of this anime every episode, you will not forget where this came from.

GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class is a slice of life series which is about art much like the more well known Hidamari Sketch. Despite that, GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class is unique in it's own way and is pretty entertaining.

Like most slice of life anime series, there is no plot. It takes a similar approach to the genres as most slice of life anime where you watch what the characters do in different situations. However this series is unique in it's way. For one, read more

Ok, this is my first review...

First things first. I'm terribly Biased. like, REALLY biased. Not only do I love the author of this work, I tend to love moe animes in general. To me, the ability to generate a really good atmosphere is just as important as telling a good story, and an anime with a horrible story can be more than completely forgiven in the case it has a really good atmosphere. This anime does. Granted I loved the character designs (and had real fun guessing what S-A-C Kuro characters these were designed off of), found them a little tropey, but hey, tropes are read more

*Note that this is my first review....
*Also note that I WILL update this as I watch more...

For someone who loves art, not just "anime" styled art like me, this anime was fairly enjoyable for my type. Sure, there are other animes about art, but this one caught my interest in particular.

There is no solid story to this anime, and simply, it tells the watchers about the activities that the GA, the Geijutsuka or Art Design Class experiences. The anime has five characters, each with their own distinct personalities. I have to admit that the character design and art was "interesting" to say the least for read more

Hidamari and GA are both about a group of girls attending art classes at their high school. Hidamari focuses a little less on the art asepct, but the shows are still quite similar. GA is kind of like the middle ground between Sketchbook and Hidamari, so if you liked those, you'll probably like GA.

GA has more comedy than Sketchbook, but they both are still very similar. Both shows are about a fairly normal girl surrounded by odd people in her art class. GA is kind of like the middle ground between Sketchbook and Hidamari, so if you liked those, you'll probably like GA.

Both are comedies with school friends. They don't have expanded threads, preferably are collection of mini-stories.

That a wonder of Japanese daily life to you. Full of stereotypical characters doing anything that would not bore you to the turn-off button. Daily life that is all fun and extraordinarily epic is what the anime trying to offer you.

If you like Aria because it offers you tranquility in an out of ordinary setting, then these two shows are doing the complete different by giving you epic joy in a relatively normal human environments. Unique selling points of Aria is about where they do stuffs, this two shows cares more about what they do.

- some female friends spend their time in school
- funny
- similar chara (Tomo - Tomokane, Sakaki - Miyabi) 
reportRecommended by Dusia
Focused on school life and club activities, very stereotypical anime shows in these days.

Sorry to say this, but GA despite the fact that it looked sort of educational, it is not educational. The show fulfill comedy and slice of life genre by showing characters, their relationship, and how they react to each others actions. The slice of life element far exceed the educative contents its offered.For K-ON, of course it is not educational.

The only controversy of finding similarity in K-ON and GA are pace and storytelling style. K-ON is strictly follow 1-2-3, intro-conflict-solution common in slice of life. While GA  read more
