Azumanga Daioh is a series that always reminds me of the simplistic joys of everyday high-school life. After recently going through it a second time, I thought I’d express my views on what made this show such a runaway hit. Hope yo like it. It's a loooong review yaw hahha. Don't mad at me if you hate to read it.

First and foremost, Azumanga Daioh is one of the most unique comedy series’ in all of anime. It sports an absurdly offbeat and unconventional sense of humor that only a handful of people can trulygrasp. As such, people tend to assert that the series is very much an acquired taste, as viewers will either hold it on a pedestal as comedic gold or write it off as pointless, impenetrable babble.

While the comedic timing is often spot-on, the series has a lot of trouble with pacing and maintaining consistency in general. As an example, compare the scenes focusing on Chiyo or Sakaki to the ones focusing on Osaka. While all three characters possess quirks that could potentially grind the pacing to a halt (Chiyo being a diligent child genius, Sakaki being a painfully shy introvert, and Osaka being, well…Osaka), it’s primarily the Chiyo or Sakaki-centric scenes that encourage bouts of yawning.
Perfect yawning, maybe, but yawning nonetheless.

Pacing issues aside, AzuDai just outright isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. The series is already vacuous enough to begin with and more cynical-minded people will find it almost offensively inane as if it’s deliberately trying to test their patience or waste their time. So it’s definitely not for folks who want a series where “stuff happens” or those looking for an “intellectually rewarding” experience.

With that out of the way, what exactly is it that makes AzuDai a timeless classic? Simply put, it’s the characters.

These schoolgirls comprise the most lovable and exasperatingly eccentric nakama that you wish you could be a part of. The characterization is particularly robust, even if there is little overall development due to a distinct lack of plot. Heck, I would say that AzuDai sports such a brilliant cast that it warrants its own section.
