This series as a whole is very cute! I really enjoyed them and I would highly recommend them for middle school aged girls. I absolutely loved that Sakaki finally got a cat in this volume. That's really all I care about haha.

As far as a story goes, this one is pretty terrible. There is no plot. It's nonexistent. It's just a series of moments with these characters and them reacting to each other.

But what does make this series memorable are the characters.

Chiyo is cute and interesting. She entered high school at age 10, is smart, cooks her own meals, innocent, and hard-working. She's kind but she also can get irritated as well. Being the youngest of the group, she's the center of most of the comedy because of her yout
In their last year of high school! the class goes on its Senior year field trip to Osaka. Chiyo chan and Osaka have fun saying everything in Osakan (with words taken from their tour literature). Sakaki finds a cat that is drawn to her, its a rare endangered Iriomite cat--or Yamapikarya--a spotted wildcat with rounded ears. They are the size of domestic cats but very rare. They leave it on the island. The next week Sakaki is about to be ganged up on by several angry cats and 1 cat comes to her re ...more
Of course it was amazing! I'm sad to say goodbye to the gang, but I did it with tears in my eyes (from sadness and a,so from laughing so hard the whole time).

This may be my favorite volume in the series. The girls are in their last year of high school, and there is some really nice character growth. I'd recommend reading the first three before this one, because the payoff comes in the culmination of knowledge of the characters' personalities.

I've reread this series several times, and always manage to laugh out loud.
This is so wonderful series that I want it! Although there were some jokes that didn't work because they were translated into Finnish. It would have also been nice if they would have left all of the -san, -sensei, etc. endings in the translation.

This was such a great book overall, and I loved it the whole series through! It's so sad to have it end. But what I like to say is when something ends, it's really the start of a new beginning.

***** Stars for this volume, and the overall series!
This one was definitely my favourite out of the four. It kind of made me feel sad, seeing them all finishing their school days and all. But what made it the best, I think, was (view spoiler) It was the best!

This is such a hilareous series. I really liked how the series ends on a more serious note. I was sad to see the series end but I can still read it over and over.
This manga is an absolutely hilarious collection of short comic strips. Azumanga is one of the funniest things I have ever read. These books give me so much joy!

ini komik lucunya ampun-ampunan. nyeritain persahabatan tokaoh"nya dengan beragam karakter dan pengalaman mereka kocak minta ampun. pasti ketawa gilak baca ini komik :D
i love this manga... since all the main characters are girls, it reminds me a lot of my high school days... totally recommended. ^^
This is another one of my favorite manga series. Its sad that it had to end but each volume is a year of their high school years.

tamat juga... coba ada anak kecil kayak Chiyo: genius, kaya, mandiri, humble, baik sama temen2nya... :p
One of the best endings to a manga ever. Even on my third read-through, it still makes me cry.
