Azumanga Daioh, based on the 4-panel manga of the same name by Kiyohiko Azuma, is a charming and funny series that focuses on a group of girls - each with their own distinct personalities - at a high school in Japan. There is Chiyo, the adorable 10-year-old prodigy; Sakaki, the quiet girl who loves cute things but has trouble with a particularly vicious kitty; Tomo, the loud and energetic but untalented one; Kagura, a competitive and athletic girl; Yomi, the relatively level-headed member of the group; Kaorin, a shy girl with an unusual admiration for Sakaki; and Ayumu, a.k.a. "Osaka", a kind girl who just happens to always have her head in the clouds. The series also pays attention to a group of teachers at the school: Yukari, the English teacher with some rather juvenile tendencies; Minamo, Yukaris longtime friend/rival who teaches physical education; and Mr. Kimura, a creepy-looking, slack-jawed classic literature teacher who is not afraid to admit that he only became a teacher because he has a fetish for high school girls.
