Synopsis

It's not manga, it's Azumanga! − smart, fun and totally addictive. Created by the iconoclastic Kiyohiko Azuma, Azumanga Daioh is strongly character driven, taking the reader through the daily tribulations of Miss Kurosawa, Miss Yukari, the wild Tomo, hair-triggered Yomi, ditzy Osaka, brash Kagura, cute Chiyo-chan and athletic (but girly) Sakaki.

I'm not an anime or manga buff. I don't know everything. I may or may not have good taste. I'm just a person who enjoys anime and manga. However, I hope this review helps anyone with deciding whether to read it or not.

PLUSES:
I have the Azumanga Daioh Omnibus and I have read the whole thing. I love Azumanga Daioh. It never fails to cheer me up. I love the antics of everyone in the group. I laughed at the crazy things they did. My stomach would hurt from the hilarious moments I shared with my brother reading this. I cried when it was done. No read more

I'm surprised that there are no reviews written for Azumanga Daioh, although there are many for the anime.

Story

I adore slice-of-life manga, which would be the genre that suits Azumanga Daioh best. It's plot is nothing heavy, certainly nothing dramatic or romantic, and sometimes it doesn't even make sense. Yet it's amazing. The humor is random and strange at times, but that makes it all the more funny.

Art

Although I can't say I like the art as much in the first volume, the art in Azumanga Daioh is rendered well in most of it. Since it mostly consists of four-panel strips, the art is not detailed, read more

User Recommendations

They are both by the same author and have a similar style of unique comedy. A great series if your looking for lots of fun and laughs.
Both are about a bunch of girls and the setting is usually at school. They're also 4komas.
