Azumanga Daioh Discussion

Post by Luu Sky Sapphire on Wed Nov 17, 2010 3:31 pm



When people ask me what the funniest anime/manga series of all time is, I have to tip my hat to Azumanga Daioh. The characters are extremely stupid (except Yomi), the antics are hilarious and the art is cute. It has that humor I enjoy so much, I can't really explain it. "Contradiction humor" is the best way to describe it. Here's an example of Azumanga's humor:

Skinny Girl: I can't believe I've eaten so much in one day!

Fat Girl: No kidding, man you're such a fat ass.

Skinny Girl: LOOK WHO'S TALKING!!!

That is Azumanga in a nutshell. The characters include the smart little girl Chiyo-chan, the cat loving Sakaki, dropped-on-the-head-as-a-baby Osaka, the obnoxious Tomo, the oh-so-serious Yomi, the athletic Kagura, the closet lesbian Kaori, the laid back Yukari-sensei, the rational Nyamo, and the creepy pedophile Kimura. It's a very colorful cast, indeed. ^o^

Here's the first episode (dubbed because I'm too lazy to find the original subtitled version.), give it a try sometime!







All discussion and fandom for Azumanga Daioh will be posted here. Have fun! ^o^

Poo. I'm the only one who loves this zany little series, how terribly upsetting. No matter, cuz the most annoying character in the series can liven things up quicker than you can say Whyintheheck.

10+ minutes of DA DA DA DAAAAAAAAAAA starring Tomo Takino

Lol Luu.

You have interesting taste in humor. :D

I did enjoy AzuDai (don't kill me for shortening it please >.<). But, sometimes stupid humor is just TOO stupid for me. I thought Tomo overshot it a few times, but that's just my opinion.

I also never watched the dub... and don't plan to Razz

I'm the only fan of it. ^_^

AzuDai. <3 I love that. Tomo is not my favorite character, despite my video making it seem that way. I'm very fond of Yukari, she reminds me of myself years ago when I didn't have a care in the world. Now I'm a tad more mature, but my drinking and hunger for crab legs hasn't died. That's for certain. I also like Osaka, even if she were a silent character, she would still remain a comic genius.

You can't compare the two, but I'm glad you went with Mai-HiME first. Try to catch up on Azumanga sometime, it's comedy gold. Razz

I'm not done with this series yet, but man I love it. One of my favorite aspects is the soundtrack, I don't hear many different tunes but they're memorable and always employed in the perfect way. I also love the opening and closer, haven't really found any anime that has had similar songs like these.






There is also much to love about the animation in those songs too, they sum up the show for all that it is.(Which is awesome comedy with a few heart warming moments).

Both Soramimi no Cake and Raspberry Heaven were done by Oranges & Lemons (Yoko Ueno & Masumi Ito). They give off a unique yet bizarre nasally sound that fits the Azumanga Daioh series.

Bow to the greatest of all time: Osaka!



Her extreme stupidity would make Sailor Galaxia and Kid Buu from DBZ cry.
