It's not manga, it's Azumanga (and it's smart, fun and totally addictive)! Created by the iconoclastic Kiyohiko Azuma (hence the name), Azumanga Daioh is strongly character driven, telling the story of a group of high-school girls and their hilarious daily tribulations.
Paperback, 168 pages
Published December 29th 2003 by ADV Manga (first published October 2000)

Azumanga Daioh Vol.2 is even more amusing than the first volume and it's mostly due to Miss Yukari's crazy antics. The second volume kicks off in January with the gang returning from winter holidays. Lucky for us, this motley group entertains us with all their hilarious monkey business all the way into August, ending the volume with summer break.

For a series with nary a plot, it is superbly entertaining and leaves you with such a happy feeling (like being smothered in puppy kisses)

Recommends it for: Anyone who likes Pani Poni Dash.
A 4-koma manga filled with comedy and craziness. Very random.

At points the comedy had me laughing, and at others, it didn't really hit me. The comedy, however, was funnier in this volume.

Every strip has comedy in it, whether you realize it or not, marking this book as down right comedy.

***** Stars, and I will be advancing on!

Has anyone else noticed that Tomo's hair keeps getting longer??

I thought the first volume took some getting into, when I put it down and picked this one up, it just "flowed". Sakaki is my favorite character, playing with Japanese schoolgirl stereotypes. Also, I like cats. The dream sequences are hilarious (The creepy cat-dad thing!) and really get across immature "school girl" humor. Half of the time I wasn't laughing because the joke was funny, but laughing that the characters thought it was funny. It's a very difficult thing for an author to do that, and ...more

Always a good re-read as well!
Absolutely adorable! I read it so fast, it's a shame I don't have the next volumes yet. All the characters have their own particularity and make their group of friends unique, and I love this about Azumanga Daioh.

The only thing that really bothers me is that creepy professor - whose name I forgot, but anyways. He's always making coments about the girls, and is portrayed as a pervert, so I don't like the comedic way he's seen. It would be better if he didn't exist at all, tbh.

This was another cute, light, and at times funny title in the series. I enjoyed it more than volume 1, so I will continue on with volume 3.

Very funny manga with further adventures of the class, each of which has their own funny personalities. Mr. Kimura, the creepy teacher actually has a pretty wife which amazes everyone. Some of the characters have funny dreams. For summer vacation, Tomo is even more obnoxious, throwing the key to Chiyo-Chan's parents beach house in the bushes and keeping everyone up all night and getting up early. Sakaki still pines for an animal, the normally sober p.e. teacher Miss Kurosawa has to drink too muc ...more

En este tomo aumenta la calidad del manga respecto al volumen anterior, con unos personajes más definidos y la seguridad que esto produce en el lector a la hora de disfrutar adecuadamente de las historias. Con el perfil definido de los caracteres, se producen situaciones un tanto surrealistas y muy divertidas que aportan frescor a la monotonía del curso anterior. Me alegro de haber decidido continuar con la lectura de esta obra.

this is way cute! I enjoyed volume 2 more than 1, probably because I was already familiar with the characters. i still love Sakaki the most, but i grew to like the other characters a lot more. I think I would have given this 5 stars if it weren't for kimura. I just hate creepy characters like him, totally unnecessary!

This was just okay. Maybe 2.5 stars. The underlying obsession with the size of the breasts of a lead character I thought a bit much. The lecherous teacher a stereotype. It clouds what could be a decent story. My students haven't flocked to this series, but maybe by the copyright this is dated material.

The translation here is better than it was in the first volume, but still a little stiff. The humor is more fun and more thoughtful, as well, but it's still a little cliched, with some easy "breast size" jokes. It's interesting to see this as a step toward the later absolute genius of Yotsuba&; it's also instructive to look at how the anime took these jokes and made them shine.

As with the first Azumanga Daioh, the series continues to capture the quirky personalities, antics, and experiances of the characters. Yukari, in particular, is very amusing. But she's always that way, isn't she? Ahhh.... you have to love Azumanga Daioh.

This is a fun series to read! The characters are so cute, and the humorous situations made me chuckle. However, the first volume, and especially this volume, contain some inappropriate jokes. I would not recommend for even a 13 year old to read this. Older readers, read with caution.

This one is just as good as the first and maybe better. I love the new jokes that they put into this one. But the 3rd must be better!

Even if you're not into anime/manga, this series is highly amusing and can be read in short snippets. It's a great, quirky coming of age sort of thing...

i love this manga... since all the main characters are girls, it reminds me a lot of my high school days... totally recommended. ^^
In addition to Natsuki Takaya, Bisco Hatori, and Aya Nakahara, Kiyohiko Azuma is one of my all-time favorite mangakas. He's so talented! I love Azumanga Daioh and Yotsuba&!, they are so amazing:)
