Anime of the Past: Azumanga Daioh

Oprainfall writes:

"Azumanga Daioh is a twenty-six episode anime series that originally aired on Japanese television in 2002. Its title is a portmanteau; “Azumanga” being a combination of “Azuma,” the surname of the original manga’s creator, Kiyohiko Azuma and “manga.” “Daioh,” or “Great King,” comes from Dengeki Daioh, the shounen manga publication in which it originated. And this silly, borderline nonsensical title is a perfect fit for the series that bears it." (Anime, Azumanga Daioh)
