High school, more or less, is a time that people look back at with either chagrin, happiness, or a combination of the two. Whether you have fond memories of school or are still having to deal with that confusing time in your life for at least another year or two, there is no denying that among the anime watching community there is always that stigma hanging over any anime pertaining to high school mainly because of how saturated the industry is with them. While most can argue that the Slice of Life genre of anime is one of the most easily accessible, I find nowadays read more

Azumanga Daioh took me by complete surprise. I discovered it from a YouTube clip where she meets "Chiyo's father" and I thought it was the funniest thinger I have seen in a long time. I asked around and was wondering if it would interest me. After researching it for a bit I decided that yes, I would watch it. I sure am glad I looked at the related videos that day, that clip eventually led me to watch the awkwardly hilarious slice of life anime known as Azumanga Daioh.

Story : This is a slice of life anime, and what that read more

This show was great! It gave me a lot of good laughs and there were a lot of adorable moments. It really depicts high school life accurately, in a form of comedy at least. I was shown this show by friends. At first it was a clip on YouTube where Osaka meets Chiyo's "father," and from that moment I knew the show would be hilarious. It's a really cute anime and good to brighten anyone's day! If you're looking for a comfy, funny, and bright-toned show, definitely check out Azumanga Daioh! (〃^∇^)ノ

Azumanga daioh is one of the funniest animes i have ever seen PERIOD! Azumanga takes place during the high school years of a handful of girls. No its not a girls only school but the only main characters are ALL girls. The entire cast all run the gamut of moe-ness. Ranging from super chibi to a girl that thinks she's not cute.

The story is basically a slice of life anime basically meaning it a Seinfeld-esqe sitcom surrounding high school girls. Theres no real story element, and thankfully no multiple part episodes are around here. Just short simple and hilarious situations that can be finished in read more

Same plotless comedy with awesome characters and original jokes.

Similar humour and episode layout/development. However, Azumanga has a stronger storyline than Nichijou, which is literally just clips from the character's obscure lives. 
reportRecommended by Kuromii
Both are from the same genre - slice of life/comedy, and both tell the story in similar ways, using short segments throughout each episode to explore different parts of the characters lives. Both are hilarious, and both are a must watch.

Azumanga Daioh is on crack. Pani Poni Dash is on even more crack, if that's possible. 
reportRecommended by Pond
Both are funny in the same way that hanging out with your best friends and talking and laughing about nothing in particular is funny. 
reportRecommended by Anomalous
Both are enjoyable slice-of-life comedies set in highschool starring an almost entirely female cast. Very similar humor and character types. Azumanga Daioh is a bit surreal at times and K-ON has the Moe-factor and a focus on music.
