An anime that never gets old is Azumanga Daioh! It’s one of my all-time favorites. It’s hilarious and whimsical without being overrated. It’s a short 26 episode series so it’s easy to watch. My favorite character is Osaka who is literally from Osaka, Japan. Her real name is Ayumu Kasuga but she’s given that nickname on the show. I also appreciate the fact that Chiyo’s father is a giant orange cat that speaks English. Plus, who doesn’t love Miss Yukari and her crazy antics as a teacher?
Who says teachers have to be normal and level-headed? I love Chiyo too, she’s a 10 year old genius who’s smart enough to be a high school student. This anime features a wacky friend group that goes on various adventures. The opening is super catchy too. This was one of the first anime titles I ever watched. Sakaki is the strong, silent type who is secretly a cinnamon roll on the inside. Despite the carefree attitude of the show, the characters go through great development. Here’s the opening for the anime:
I love listening to Chiyo’s cooking song too. She’s just so adorable!! I can recommend both the english dub and Japanese version with subtitles. They really did a great job of picking talented voice actors for the show. This show would provide a great group cosplay too! The Azumanga Daioh uniforms are very cute. What’s your top anime that never gets old? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section. If you haven’t seen Azumanga Daioh, I would highly recommend it!
