Hopefully this gives you the idea that I really like Azumanga Daioh as a series and would recommend anybody who has fond memories of high school to watch it. I understand if you are a teacher it should be compulsory watching material from one of my friend's she said the stereotypes where amazing and could attribute each of the girls to members of her own classes. She was not too pleased when I compared her to the English teacher though. This is a set I would say go and find and watch right now, then buy the mangas and read them or the other way around. Also worth mentioning in passing is that there are two Azumanga Daioh short movies. One of these is included as an extra on the last DVD the other is Azumanga Web Daioh and is worth a watch if you can find it but I am not as keen on it as the actual series. It gives you a sort of idea on what to exspect but the series itself manages everthing so much better. The whole style of the series seems to suit it.
Azumanga Daioh se ha convertido en una serie a la que recurro con frecuencia tanto en las buenas como en las malas. Es, sin duda, una de mis favoritas.
Azumanga Daioh chronicles the everyday life in an unnamed Japanese high school of six girls and two of their teachers: child prodigy Chiyo Mihama and her struggle to fit in with girls five years older, reserved Sakaki and her obsession with the cute animals who seem to hate her, spacey Ayumu "Osaka" Kasuga with a skewed perspective on the world, Koyomi "Yomi" Mizuhara's aggravation at an annoying best friend, Tomo Takino, whose energy is rivaled only by her lack of sense, sporty Kagura and her one-sided rivalry with Sakaki, and their homeroom teacher Yukari Tanizaki and her friend, physical education teacher Minamo Kurosawa. Secondary characters include Kimura-sensei, a creepy male teacher with an obsession with teenage girls, and Kaorin, a classmate with a crush on Sakaki.
