I liked the animation style of this mini-movie very much! I wish the TV anime series was drawn this way; the style used in this mini is more fun to watch, and is more creative.

It really is pretty funny is you've watched the whole series before watching this little short... I'm glad they did something with the pigtails because they we're didn't touch base too much with Osaka's obsession with Chiyo's pigtails. Cute, funny, and REALLY enjoyable! :D

This is the second short pilot film that JC Staff released, this one a lot closer(but still not quite matching) the animation style and budget of the TV release. It’s a bit longer than Web Daioh, and while it’s not quite as funny, it does put forth a more accurate representation of what the series would eventually be. Rather than a traditional intro, like Web Daioh had, this film opens with a shot of Chiyo riding on her dog, Mr. Tadakichi, introducing herself and nearly getting thrown off of him. The opening features some of the show’s iconic background music, which is read more

This was alot better than that crappy Azumanga Web Daioh, but still doesn't surpass the show.

It features the young high school girls. Everything is going fine until Osaka falls in love with Chiyo-chan and accidentally plunks her pigtails off. As she is crying, the high school girls try to find a way to make her better.

I really thought Chiyo-chan acted like a two-year-old in this. The girls treating her like a toddler with a lollie pop and everything is very cruel to a little girl.

Story: Really enjoyed the story alot. But the story turned into a twist, which made it more enjoyable. Still not as read more
