Kiyohiko Azuma is a genius when it comes to comedy manga. Despite the fact that I haven't read Yotsuba&!, I know it will definitely be funny because Azumanga Daioh is definitely one of the funniest and most enjoyable manga I've read, although not the best if your talking seriously.

The characters are very unique. I mean Chiyo is so darn cute. Osaka is so weird. Tomo is so wild and energetic. Kagura is athletic but stupid. I love Yomi's pranks and punches (used against Tomo). Sakaki's luck with cats is also quite hilarious. Yukari's selfishness and horrible driving skills are great. Nyamo is the nice teacher. Kaorin and Kimura-sensei...I don't see how Kaorin can ever be successful with her current goal and it's creepy that Kimura has a wife and daughter.

Also the plot is very basic. Actually, there is no plot. Yes, there is no plot. Just everyday school life. Anyway, it's nice to see that there's actually a mangaka who draws manga with a simple and basic attitude to them. Nothing special. No romance (very surprising since this is about high school girls), EXTREMELY big breasts, gore and violence, sexual content, etc. Just a manga that doesn't require much thinking to get. Basically, if I were a user and made a review, everything would get a 5/5.

My first foray into slice of life

And I consider myself lucky it was this and not another series. The characters are well presented, the pacing is good, and the art is unique; Kiyohiko Azuma avoids falling into most of the things that have come to be associated with manga/anime in general.

Unfortunately, it's not going to be universally accepted as such, as the humor isn't going to make an impact on everyone(who cares, we're all just a bunch of geeks) and it lacks any semblance of a plot(does life have a plot? WTF do you need a plot for?). Those people suck.

Pure Comedy XD

This is called Pure Comedy.
I tell you, the characters (and behaviors) Osaka (I even forgot her actual name bigrazz) and Chiyo-chan is permanently etched into my mind smile

Yes, the characters make you laugh all the time and never fail at that... and that too without an actual plot XD

Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga was the first manga I ever read, and it drew me into the genre immediately. There's nothing here that can be called particularly spellbinding - Azumanga Daioh chronicles the decidedly everyday lives of a group of high-school girls - but there is plenty that can be called funny. Azumanga Daioh makes me laugh. Consistently and whole-heartedly, with jokes that are simple but never resort to lewdness. And that is a lot to be said of any piece of media.

Great series, not Greatest though

Being mostly a 4-Koma style series (there are parts where it follows a more traditional layout) it is a nice little something to read a strip or two each day. Anyone that enjoys this series should obviously consider reading Yotsubato! as well ,which is the Greatest series ever.

4 Panel manga

(or 4-koma) I read this after i read Yotsuba&I, I love both works but 10/10 for Yotsuba&I and 9.5/10 for this cause this manga is 4-panel manga. Comedy in this manga isn't that great but it's touching and make you relax when read it. Many character is so cute , good behavior and good nature.

This is one of the best relaxing series that I've seen. It was cute and funny, with likable quirky characters. It conveyed the feeling of a nice school life full of action, friends and fun. That's how a Slice of life should be for me. Of course there's not much plot, but if I like the characters, that's not bad at all. As I have finished school not too long ago, I also found the end quite moving...

I think Azumanga Daioh is the greatest manga and i love it very much except that it was in 4 koma form but i liked the specials and especially the gradutation part. I reccomend this for anyone who likes slice of life.

A 10. Definitely. To be honest, what else can you give it other than a 9 or higher? It's funny, it's cute, it's loads of fun, it's great. I love this manga. I love the anime too. Just one thing though. In the beginning chapters of volume one, Chiyo looks somewhat different and in the entire volume one, Osaka looks waaaay different. Chiyo was fine, but Osaka looked really, really odd.
