Episodic? Sort of. Similar to Lucky Star, the Azumanga Daioh anime is compiled from 4-panel gag manga comics of the same name; either you get the joke, or you don't. The manga is wonderful, to see it in anime is exceptional. Azumanga Daioh has also been compared to, strangely enough, the U.S. sitcom "Seinfeld", because of the episodic feel... supposedly a non-story arc affair. But realistically, the character development and day-to-day life (in this case, three years of Japanese high school) IS the story arc. The repetition of comic relief is quite intentional, this stems from the characters personalities... which makes you grow closer and founder to them. Also, like Lucky Star (and Seinfeld), what makes this series extra special is the reviewable opportunities... you don't feel weighed down by a series that is story-arc driven, this is all about the characters. No matter how many times I hear Elaine bust out "Get OUT!" on Seinfeld, it does not get old; either does this anime.

I would highly recommend viewing the anime with Japanese DUB and English subtitles... mainly because of Osaka's character. The character is from Osaka, which regionally, would be considered "down south" for us in the States. And like the English translated manga, the character is obnoxiously portrayed as being from Boston, which is a far cry... the joke in the manga, is that even though the nicknamed transfer student Osaka is from Osaka, she's expected to be cutting-edge and city-slick cool by the other students when they first meet her... but in actuality, she's quite spacey and slow on the uptake which does NOT come across in either the English translated manga or the English dubbed anime.

Do I have qualifications for this review?? Well Yes I think so, I have seen a LOT of Anime!
If you have not seen this series yet I recommend it to you. If you are an "Action" fan then it may be a bit slow so have a peek on UTube first! then rush out and buy it!
Thats where I saw it first, it gained my immediate interest and soon I had seen all the episodes, and loved the whole lot.

I believe I have this edition, as I live in anaother country than the USA, It was released here as the six disks, in fat packs with the translator/character art booklets and all the extras on disk. Also a special "father" or "Chiyo-Dad" broach. There are 6 disks of episodes and the last disk has several "extras" including a "mini movie". I LOVE this boxset.

Like many, I have watched the English and Japanese versions, Both are great but I do enjoy the Japanese version more, it is cuter and seems more natural.

So you havent seen it? well simply put it is the story of 7 student girls, 2 female teachers and the leacherous Mr. Kimura! We follow them through 3 years of high school, to their graduation. The humor is light but enjoyable, animation is very good, the characters are drawn as not to appear 15-17 years old, but that is their supposed age. There are times their characters turn to almost exagerated stick figures as necesitated by the "moment".

The cast is: (no particular order)
Chiyo-Chan, the 10 year old prodigy, Cuteness is her fortay!,
Kagura, The not to studious but very sporty type, alway wants to compete with Sakaki
Koyomi, (Yomi) studious, smart and tends to worry about her weight.
Sakaki, Tall, clever, athletic and loves cats.
Kaorin, regular student infatuated with Sakaki.
Osaka, The space cadet!

As far as the show goes I have no complaints the main problem with this set is the way the disk are packaged. Basically all six disk are stacked on top of each other which can make it a serious pain if you wanna watch later episodes because you have to take all the disk out put them to the side until you get the one you want put them back and then repeat the process if you want to put them away in order.

You know how you watch Star Wars or something else that gets your imagination going and says 'yeah, I want to be Han Solo, or Captain Kirk, or The Man With No Name, or an awesome samurai in a big robot fighting the big alien monster thing'? Perhaps this is like that, only from the other direction. Instead of getting your imagination going, it gets your heart going, and it says 'yeah, I would totally want to be friends with these girls and go on their adventures and live this kind of happy life'.

That's what this show is to me. It's like stumbling across the blog of someone who happens to be a little quirky and nerdy and funny and generally just a really good person, and you get sucked in for a few hours and learn more about them. And it's awesome. It's funny. It's worthwhile to watch, and you feel better and happier for having done so.

This is perhaps my favorite shows so far, and I've seen my fair share of anime. But I said this is one of my favorite shows, period, not just anime, but across all genres of the visual medium. It may say something that my favorite show is Fraiser. It's odd, as much as I love science fiction and superheroes and the like, when I want to sit down and just enjoy something, I turn to comedies about kind-of-everyday people in comedies. But only the exceptional ones. Azumanga Daioh is exceptional.
