  • Osaka is trying to do what she can to fit right in to the new school she is at. She shows some of her weird side as she goes, but she still keeps going.moreless

    It's the debut of Ayumu Kasuga, a.k.a. Osaka, and she really shows what she is made of. Everyone gets the feeling that she will be like a complete Osakan (a southerner in Japan), but after she performs some of her actions, she is viewed in a whole different perspective. In the episode, Osaka's character is defined as random, and "creative." Random for the things she says, and creative for the thoughts she puts together in her head to come up with a crazy idea. Osaka, one of the main characters in Azumanga Daioh, and the most random character of all.moreless

    • Chiyo: (about Osaka's hiccups) I heard that it goes away if you drink while you hold your nose.
      Yomi: I heard that it's good if you cover your ears and drink...
      Tomo: Okay! Let's try both!

    • Tomo: Fried chicken, egg roll, and meat balls! A bunch of my favorites!

    • Osaka: (thinking) When I was in Osaka, others said that I was slow or that I was out of it all the time. Well I just wonder if that's true. Was I really out of it all the time?

    • Osaka: There's a boy named Shota in our neighborhood who's also a precocious brat. She (Chiyo) is like the super version of that, right?

    • Tomo: Okay! Now we're going to go for the 10,000,000 dollar prize! Wait for us, Wimbledon!
      Yomi: How the hell can that happen in P.E.?

    • Osaka: I somehow fell asleep without realizing. It definitely was because I thought about so many things.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Osaka: "I was hoping you would say, 'That's not trivial knowledge, it's BEAN knowledge.'"
      Bean knowledge is an idiom that means miscellanous knowledge in Japanese.

      Mame chishiki = bean knowledge i.e. trivial knowledge
      Mame no chishiki = knowledge of beans
      Osaka is trying to make a pun, but no one gets it.

    • Sakaki: Well, for hiccups, you should boil the calyx of a persimmon and drink it.
      A persimmon is a popular Asian fruit. The calyx is a cup-like part of the flower.
