By far my all-time favourite manga and anime!
I absolutely love the work of Kiyohiko Azuma but Azumanga is his best!
The characters unfold their stories and their oh-so-many special little quirks that make them unique in a series of mundane yet exceptional stories.
Tomo, the loud-mouthed tom-boy. Yomi, good student with a weight obsession. Osaka, air-head and lovably weird. Chiyo-chan, the girl genious. Kagura, athletic and competitive. Sakaki, a cool-looking young woman with an obsession for cuteness and cats. Yukari, homeroom teacher and irresponsible driver. Nyamo, PE teacher, responsible, old-time friend of Yukari.
The story follows the girls until they graduate: we get to see their tests, their vacations, their special events and their blossoming friendships.
The characters are lovable, easy to relate to, quirky, unique and real!
A must-see for any anime lover! ^__^
