Review: Izumi Konata is a hopeless otaku totally into anime and games. Still, without studying and always copying homework from her friends, she always gets good grades.
This anime is, same as Azumanga Daioh, based on a 4-panel-manga and portrays the daily high school life of Izumi and her friends. All of them have unique and funny characteristics and make up an interesting combo. The different scenes might seem random and unconnected at times as it is based on a 4-panel-manga, but it is very funny none the less, especially the Happy-TV special at the end of each episode and its funny moderator. Being made by Kyoto Animations it is already certain to become a cult hit.
Pros: Anyone who has seen anime or read manga should watch this. It is one of the greatest otaku anime of all time, no doubt. It is cute. It is funny. It is great.
Cons: If you haven’t seen many animes you won’t get as many jokes or references. If you don’t live in japan or know very much as far as their culture goes you won’t understand some of the humor.
