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 Kurosawa, Yukari, the wild Tomo, hair-triggered Yomi, ditzy Osaka, brash Kagura, cute Chiyo-chan and athletic (but girly) Sakaki.

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

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

Azumanga Daioh is a four-panel comedy manga that follows a group of schoolgirls as they goof-off during high-school. There's not much more to it than that. It's made for the purpose of making you smile and it excels in that. Its art isn't spectacular, there's no tear-jerking plot, there's no though-provoking questions, just giggles.
Its jokes are usually clean. There are a few that are made for teens, but compared to most manga, anyone could read it.
It's only four volumes and it's four-panel, so it's the easiest read.
I recommend it if you're into comedy.

Azumanga Daioh is a popular classic for a reason. Simply put, it's a work of comedic genius. Everyone should read it and watch the anime.

STORY: 9/10. There isn't much to the story; just another slice-of-life tale of Japanese schoolgirls. However, it's done brilliantly. There's never a dull moment, and you'll find yourself laughing out loud at the hilarious conversations these girls have and the situations they get into. There are also heartwarming moments, especially at the end. Though it could be considered somewhat cheesy, it seems like the best possible way to end the lighthearted series.

ART: 8/10. Since it's a 4koma with a new gag read more
