Azu Manga Daioh Review

Azu Manga Daioh!
Manga By: Kiyohiko Azuma
Directed By: Hiroshi Nishikiori
Studio: J.C. Staff

Storyline (S) ******
Family Friendliness (FF) *******
Fanservice (F) ****
Cultural Hints (CH) *****

School has just started when Chiyo Mihama, a cute little prodigy, joins her new class. In this high school she meets some eccentric characters like Tomo, Sakaki, and Yukari-Sensei. From there all kinds of shenanigans await.

The storyline is very simple and definitely gives the slice of life vibe. There are times when it can be cute, silly, and touching; just like real life. For you younger audience it makes you hopeful for what's to come. For you older folk, it does make you think of the "good times." Although if you were hoping for a complex plot... don't watch this anime. XD

This story is good for the whole family. The few scenes that are borderline inappropriate can actually be useful to explain and warn your little sisters about "the creepy guys." (Yes I'm talking about you Mr. Kimura.)

For those who love cute animals, prepare to be overwhelmed. Cats have a special theme in this series and they will pop up again and again. And there will be times when the characters themselves are just adorable. This show does a great job at making you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Slice of life anime tend to be very accurate about the Japanese school culture.
I recommend this to new anime lovers who want to learn a little bit more about high school life in Japan.
