Azumanga Daioh

Show Summary

Azumanga Daioh (あずまんが大王) follows the daily high school lives of six female students and two teachers with unusual personalities. From the first day of high school to their graduation, the girls will do nothing but make you laugh. Tomo Takino is the energetic “loose cannon”; Koyomi "Yomi" Mizuhara is the short-tempered, intelligent one; Chiyo Mihama is the 10-year-old genius; Ayumu "Osaka" Kasuga is the not too bright and slow one; Sakaki is the shy cat-loving, prone to cat bites one; and Kagura is the resident jock. The teachers include: Yukari Tanizaki who is the wacky, childish, English teacher and Minamo "Nyamo" Kurosawa who is the sane gym teacher that easily gets drunk. The anime, which is based on the original manga by Kiyohiko Azuma, has five different parts to each episode, each with its own title (similar to five mini-episodes put together for one big episode). They originally aired in Japan in five-minute segments, every day (Monday-Friday) with a twenty-five minute episode compiling the five five-minute episodes airing on each weekend. There are 130 sections in all, and the series fits neatly into 26 episodes.moreless
