Any series comparable to Azumanga Daioh?

Azumanga Daioh has always been my favourite comedy series so any suggestions for shows that are similar or in the same vein would be appreciated. Basically, sincere and clean comedies that don't rely on excessive fanservice or overly tacky elements. Thanks in advance.

I found jungle wa itsumo hale nochi guu funnier.

His & Her Circumstances might fit, or Fruits Basket (both are licensed)

I'm not sure there is anything like Azumanga in that sense. Jungle is wild and wacky (very good wild and wacky), His & Her is more direct comedy plus drama (again, very good at what it does), FB is also comedy and drama (of a type very different to H&H), none of these series have the 'gentle' humour of Azu. All three are set in a school environment, so people may accidentally or incorrectly associate the series with Azu due to that.

Just wanted to say thanks again for the suggestions from everyone. I'll definitely check out some of the series mentioned. I agree though that Azumanga is certainly a unique show and probably the best comedy series I have seen so far.
