AD 5-7: The Yukarimobile

Azumanga Daioh episodes 5-7 review

Yukarimobile

Azumanga Daioh is a lot of fun. There’s no use having me review the individual plots of each episode; the plots don’t matter. In fact, we have our second swimsuit episode (which gets bolded around here), then a sports festival episode, followed by a cultural festival episode. The best of the bunch is the sports episode, where Sakaki shows off her unbelievable running skills. Tomo remains my favorite character, while Osaka has grown on me. I just hate that Southern accent they gave her. I know she’s supposed to sound different because of her Osakan accent, but Southern accents never sound right in anime.

Overall, Azumanga Daioh has had a better start than Lucky Star, and very well may eclipse it by the time we’re done. I look forward to more of this craziness to come!
