*sniff* I can't believe it's over...

There are only three episodes on this last DVD, but the final episode itself is a must-see. It really makes you think - or, barring that, you at least get to see the anime's one elaboration on the manga sequence, Tomo clapping her hands over her ears as Yomi cheerfully 'sings' the graduation song.

With a series as good as Azumanga, you sort of wish it could go on forever; but part of its charm is that it exists in real time, and the characters, innocent though they might be, are always faced with the problem of growing older and losing touch with the familiar. The humor effortlessly gives way to something profoundly touching.

To everyone behind this series--Thank you. (bows)

The final three episodes of the Azumanga Daioh anime deals with the girls studying for their college entrance exams. As Chiyo-chan is going to study in America, she doesn't have to study. Instead, the cute twelve-year old invites her friends to her house to study, during which she makes snacks for them. However, her comment that it's funny how time passes sinks into them, how they had all sorts of adventures and fun together as students, and now it's about to come to an end.

The tall cat-loving Sakaki finally becomes happy at the end when she is reunited with a dear friend from Okinawa. In disk 2, involving the New Year's Dreams, the orange Azumanga cat tells Sakaki she must find a real cat. That is now done, but what was all business with the grey Kamineko (biting cat) who was hostile to her? The analogy is the kawaii (cute) culture, exemplified by Hello Kitty and here, the plush toy of Necoconeco (Cat/Kitten). Sakaki yearned to be cute instead of cool. However, in order to stop from being looked down by her admirers, such as Kaorin, she had to put up a cool façade. Thus, the orange cat telling her to find a real cat really means, "find your true self; find your own sort of cute." The biting cat was basically telling her, "You're not one of us." The scene of her rolling on the floor with her new cat defines her own sort of cute, as like her, the cat is unusual.

Osaka's still quite the character. She loves kotatsus, the warm heated table prevalent in Japan. I've sat in one and it is so cozy, one could fall asleep, just like Osaka does. The usually placid Osaka gets mad for the first time, and it's at Tomo! However, the thought of her as a teacher makes me laugh. Yes, she'd produce students with "flexible ways of thinking," but why not?

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