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

I'm a huge fan of slice-of-life comedies, but that doesn't mean I like every single one out there. K-ON! was overdone and downright stupid. Some would say the same for GA, but I beg to differ.


- Jokes are original because the material they cover is not standard fare. This isn't Lucky Star. This isn't Azumanga Daioh (though both of those series are great stuff). The normal SOL comedy uses stereotyped characters and running gags to stir up laughs. Osaka was funny because she was the constant village idiot. Panty-flashing-girl and dog-with-stick-in-butt from Zetsubou Sensei are funny because they 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

"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
