Anime

Sketchbook: Full Color Apostrophes

Azumanga Daioh, if all the girls were Osaka.

Which you can take as a recommendation or a warning, according to taste.

Update: Just finished watching it, and I have to say that Azumanga Daioh where all the girls are Osaka is really really good.

It's a quiet and somewhat slow-moving series, something you probably need to be in the right mood to enjoy, but if you are in that mood, highly recommended.

1 It's not quite that, because they also have boys this time around, but close enough.

Yeah, I don't much agree with that view of Sketchbook either.  Even the strangest of the characters has a better grasp of of the world at large than Osaka.  If you took Azumanga and mixed it with ARIA, then watered it down so it's not as good as either parent, that's Sketchbook.

Still a good, fun watch, though.

5 I actually ended up liking it better than Aria, and I quite like Aria.  I'd definitely say that Sketchbook holds its own - in its own way - in comparison to either "parent".

Wow, the voice acting in this is so stilted it could cross a river without getting its feet wet...

16 Then you'll probably be happier not knowing what they've done to them now.  (The history link on that site is nice, though.)

17 Before I follow your link, I know they turned them into Indiana Jones clones, and gave them a girl as part of the team. Was there something else?

18 And now I follow your link. Oh, lord...
