Reseña del editor
It's not manga, it's Azumanga (and it's smart, fun and totally addictive)! Created by the iconoclastic Kiyohiko Azuma (hence the name), Azumanga Daioh is strongly character driven, telling the story of a group of high-school girls and their hilarious daily tribulations.

The book's cover says it's for 13 and up, which is true. At one point the girls are talking about their bodies, so it is really for young adults. The cover also says it is an "Action/Comedy" manga but as there is very little in the way of car chases and gun battles I would ignore the "Action" and just take it as a "Comedy".
But despite those odd facts, this delightful little series is one of the few schoolcentric manga that I've read and enjoyed -- a comic exploration of the oddball lives of a gang of young high school girls and a few equally eccentric young teachers. "Azumanga Daioh Volume 1 " doesn't delve too deeply into characters' lives or anything non-fluffy -- Kiyohiko Azuma's stories charm just by being adorable and a little strange.
High school has begun, and there's a crop of new students -- among them is the quiet, tall cat-lover Sakaki, ten-year-old genius Chiyo-chan, the impulsive and freakishly energetic Tomo, the sensible Yomi, and a spacey transfer student from Osaka named Ayumu (but who is always called Osaka instead). The assorted teens are taught (I use the term loosely) by their immature and mildly bipolar teacher Yukari, and her exasperated gym-teacher buddy "Nyamo."
Throughout their first year of high school, the students and teachers must deal with assorted ball games, biting cats, stray kittens, contemplations of teen life, pool sharks, working at a thinly-disguised McDonald's, visits to Chiyo-chan's summer house and the beach, running for class president (Tomo nominated herself! Aiee!), weird photographic images, nasty thunderstorms, Sakaki's secret vice, talking to foreigners, pandas, Chiyo's massive dog, Mr. Kimura publcly snapping and proclaiming his love for teen girls, a sports festival and a stuffed animal exhibit festival, and Chiyo's mysterious pigtails.
"Azumanga Daioh" isn't really like any other manga I've seen -- while it has a couple of "normal" chapters, most of the time it's rendered in vertical four-panel strips, like daily comic strips. It also has no overarcing storylines of any kind, although it does have some fun running gags -- and though there are a spattering of male characters on the sidelines (including the ghoulish Mr Kimura and a horde of nameless boys), it's almost completely focused on young women.
But despite having pretty much no plot, "Azumanga Daioh" is adorable and charming fluff. Azuma takes the ordinary stuff of everyday life (like chatting at school) and gives it a delightfully offbeat twist (poor Chiyo having graphic flashbacks to Yukari's driving -- "I'm sorry. I'm sorry. It's all over!"). She has a knack for finding the goofy stuff in fairly ordinary life (giant cat costumes) and amplifying it just a little -- while inserting some sly jokes as well ("You just said that what we learn is meaningless after we graduate." "Shaddup. That's what we call 'education!'").
And the cast of characters is pretty fun -- Sakaki is especially endearing, since she seems imposing and distant, but is actually shy and sentimental (especially about cute stuff); Chiyo is endearing thanks to her short size and conscientious worrywartiness. And the insanely energetic Tomo and surreal-minded space cadet "Osaka" make nice accompaniments, as do Nyami and Yukari ("that's why it's my responsibility as an educator to uh... to... well, you know... anyway... will someone PLEASE take this thing home?!"), who are sort of a Japanese educational Odd Couple. Except with bike stealing.
"Azumanga Daioh Volume 1" is simple, fluffy, and all the more charming for being so -- it's not so much a slice of life as a hundred delicious little crumbs.
