volume 3 wasn't quite as funny as 2, but I still enjoyed it. Sakaki is featured less which could be my problem. I do like the dynamic between Miss Yukari and Miss Kurosawa. I can relate to Miss Yukari's views of being an adult. ...more

In my preference, I rated this manga with this criteria:
Originality 2.75
Style of Writing 3.5
Physical Appearance (of the book) 3.75
Plot 2.5
Characters 3

The manga is a coming of age story following these young Japanese high school girls in their journey in high school. The manga is light-hearted and humorous. Don't expect a heavy drama or a roller coaster ride of emotions but rather a ride of laughter and warmth. Since the plot is not that much heavy, there wasn't much character build up with the c

You know why this series is so great? Because all the characters are either relatable or just plain funny.

For example, after working my way through college, I can relate to Yukari’s attitude toward money. I also relate to Sakaki’s height and quiet nature. Yomi’s sarcasm and sass is also relatable. Even Chiyo is relatable because I was the smart kid growing up and even now I have random knowledge about random things that make people think I’m super smart. In reality, I just shut up and pay attent

A reread.
After reading the third book, I realized the plot of this manga is static. New year, new year dream, new semester, summer break, sport festival. They are the same from the first and second books but of course it's different story from the previous volumes.
From their first grade until last grade on high school, it feels like we actually there watching them spending their school life from beginning until the end.

Azumanga Daioh, Vol. 3 is another fun-filled adventure following our favorite high school students and teachers as they finish another school year. This volume takes us from September through May with yet another amusing Sports Festival and an even more hilarious School Festival. You can always count on these wackadoodles for a laugh-out-loud good time.

The space cadet, Osaka, really steals the show in this volume with all her nonsensical wonderings. Osaka is blissfully ignorant. It s

Este tercer tomo nos relata las peripecias que viven las protagonistas durante el tercer curso de secundaria. Un curso bastante parecido a los dos anteriores y que se mantiene igual que siempre, del modo que ya nos tiene acostumbrados. Quizá ese sea el problema.

Algunas historias muy graciosas, otras no tanto, otras totalmente prescindibles y más de lo mismo. No está mal, aunque personalmente comienza a aburrirme (por supuesto, esta valoración es totalmente subjetiva, claro está). Lo recomiendo a

The dream sequence early in this volume is one of the funniest things I've read in a long time. I DARE you to look at the expression on the penguin's face on page 78 and NOT laugh.

The jokes are a delightful blend of schoolgirl humor and laughing at the fact that these characters somehow think it is funny. They're at the age where randomness is the absolute height of humor and randomly hitting and shoving your friends is HIIII-LARIOUS. I don't think that stuff is funny and when I see a teen like

My general thoughts on the series are here.
At the third volume the usual pattern starts to feel very repetitive, but I still like this series. I giggle most of the time while reading it.

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

The comedy is classic, and just hilarious. That's what drove me this far into the series, and I wish it didn't have to end at 4!!

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

***** Stars, I am currently on the final volume, and I started watching the anime on Comcast~^^

This was another cute addition to the series. I actually laughed out loud at one point, so the series is definitely getting better as it goes. The translator's notes are also interesting and informative. I'm looking forward to volume 4. ...more

This is such a great book! I didn't learn much from it but it's a great read that anyone would enjoy. The Whole story revolves around a 10 year old genius in high school named Chiyo Chan. The author does great drawings and has a great idea about life in high school for this book. ...more
