Two years down and one to go! Chiyo, Sakaki and the rest of the girls enjoy their last school year filled with a hysterical trip to Okinawa, the last chance to score a victory at the sports fest and so much more. Sharpen your pencils for another bungling year with the Azumanga girls.

Volume 5: Seniors continues one of the funniest and greatest anime of all time. As the dvd opens the girls are starting their last year of high school before they move on to their own seperate lives. There's one snag though, Kaorin is put into the homeroom of the perverted Mr. Kimura who begins to take a creepy interest in her.

After that, it's on to the school trip to Okinawa and a weekend of scuba diving, powerboat cruising, and the visiting of ancient temples. The highlight just might be Sakaki's encounter with the rarely seen and endangered iriomote cat. Will she finally be able to pet a cat without it biting her hand off?

Episode 22 involves the annual vacation at Chiyo-chan's summer beach home. For the first time, Kaorin is along for the ride, but will she survive one of this volume's funniest moments when the Yukari-mobile shows up.

Episode 23 concerns the annual sportsfest and Yukari's constant obsession to defeat her best friend, Minamo. Having Kagura and Sakaki on your team can't hurt your chances, but Yukari's personal involvement in the baton relay might just destroy their chances of first place.

I love this show. You really care about the characters and come to love them over the course of the anime. The actors are first rate. The best thing about this series is that it is so warmhearted in its humor. All of the laughs are playful. Beneath its exterior is a gentle melancholy, in the sense that this is their last year together. It will make me sad to see it end in the next volume, but this series really is something you'll treasure for a lifetime. Buy it!

The usual extras are here with a reversible cover with a ton of informative info about the volume.

The Azumanga girls are now high school seniors. They are back together but Kaorin gets moved to the homeroom of Mr. Kimura, who isn't exactly her favourite person. Not only that, but Kimura nominated Kaorin to be class rep. Chiyo and Tomo have had some hair alterations in the process.

Chiyo-chan, already ahead in her college plans, decides to go to America, despite the dangers there. After all, she is rich, small, and could be a target for kidnapping. Kagura and Tomo are impressed, and Osaka has a loopy and cute daydream following Tomo's suggestion that Chiyo could become president of America. It involves Osaka disembarking from a plane and being met by many cute Chiyo-chans.

The highlight of this disc is the school trip to Okinawa. They have all sorts of fun. Osaka has fun looking at the lion-like shiisaa statues and practicing her Okinawan with Chiyo, but her smile is cute when she sees the champloo (Okinawan stir fry) and gets all happy. Champloo! On Iriomote Island, Sakaki's first step towards true happiness is realized when she meets a tiny Iriomote mountain kitten that allows her to pat it and carry it during their trip. The farewell is painful to Sakaki as she looks back, tears streaming from her face. However, one scene from the manga I wish had been animated is where the silly Osaka throws sea cucumbers at Chiyo and Yomi. Tomo makes a pest of herself holding out souvenirs and repeating their names before Yomi tells her to shut up.

The final summer vacation at Chiyo's place turns out to be an entrance exam study time. And this time, Kaorin gets to go after having to go with her astronomy club camp in Discs 1 and 3. Yet Ms.

Such a funny show! Azumanga Daioh has absolutely no plot whatsoever other than it being about high school girls. But that's it. It just follows their lives and the random stuff they do at school and occasionally outside of school. Their teachers, in particular, are hilarious! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a funny show.

Basic character driven anime. Focuses on a group of friends in high school and the troubles they go through. Coming of age story.
