Yeah that exchange was funny, but to this day I still don't get the whole "Chiyo's dad is a cat" gag.

Nothing to get, just random japanese humor.

OMG Azumanga Daioh! I can't get over the sheer cuteness/sillyness of this screwball high school comedy!

I have the complete DVD box set of this anime and thoroughly enjoy it

Finally found this thread! Anyway, Sakaki is my favorite character as she sort of has the same attitude that I have and we're both cat lovers!

Do you think ADV will sell the rights to Funimation, seeing how they're selling most of their licenses lately? Do you think a Funimation dub will be better than the ADV one?

I just don't understand what people see in this show. I like shows with slice of life/comedy type such as this, but this anime isn't even funny. The '' jokes '' supposed to be funny, well.. they're not. The characters are all boring, and they all look the same. Just different hair length or slightly different color and there you have it, the whole cast.

Three episodes was enough, as I could not have been more bored in my life, and I nearly fell asleep atleast twice per each episode.

@Dist: you might give it another shot in a few years. Your tastes might change. Sounds like you may still be inclined to 'young boys action' (shounen) anime? It was produced a number of years ago, and many of the tropes/jokes/archetypes in it have been re-used in other more recent series.

As for your comments on the characters, I think you're over-reaching in justifying why you weren't happy with it:

Yes, they're all japanese school girls but that's about as "the same" as it gets, they aren't "harem rainbow colors" ... Sayonara Zetsubō Sensei characters are also mostly portrayed semi-realistically.
You're on firmer ground with the "bored" comment. Slice-o-daily-life tends to be very subtle in terms of character development and letting it build incrementally. Sometimes it isn't meant to be "funny" so much as "true" or just evoke a mood. That's why its frequently popular with exhausted 20-something-aged salarymen in Japan who want to relax happily.

@et al:
ADV lost the rights to the manga to Yen Press just a few months ago (see the manga thread for AzuDa). The status of the DVD series is kind of shadowy though ADV still appears to own the rights (it was their only cash cow). I don't know if they're still pressing disks or just working off the remaining stock. rightstuf.com does list it as in stock.

On the anime, if you don't enjoy your voice actors, it's a thumbs down to enjoying the show. Everytime I hear Tanaka Rie's "Baka to(no?) omae da!!", I laughed like mad. Tanaka Rie as Yomi was probably the highlight of the show, along with Matsuoka Yuki's Osaka. Her screws-loose comments can make you explode with laughter, or go "Huh?"

@ Vexx.

Mhm, well, I just didn't find jokes in this anime funny, that's all. And the characters personalities didn't match my liking. Though I found it boring, I do like various slice of life animes. For example, I find Lucky Star and Azumanga Daioh often compared, and how AD is supposedly so superior to LS, and this is what I don't understand. Lucky Star is awesome, and it's actually funny.. But this series isnt'. But hey well, it's just my opinion.

And I didn't exactly mean the characters can't be portrayed as semi-realistically, that's not really the problem. And I do like alot of other animes than just shounen =P.

AD is more a tuned with real life while on LS tends to reach out to people who know anime. Probably that's the only difference of the 2 since both also uses imaginary things like that yellow NEKO XD XD XD.
