Overview
Hooray! Festival Season Is Back!!

Get ready for a slew of crazy new challenges in the sports fest, culminating in an action-packed 10-K race! The ever-hyper Tomo is dying from excitement, but Osaka is afraid of just plain dying! Later, Chiyo-chan adds to the hilarity as she scrambles to pull things together for this year's culture fest. Will it be a big hit - or a miserable miss - for our cast of high school cuties?

But wait - there's more! Extracurricular activities aren't the only source of action. Between classes, the girls doggedly debate things like the color of pandas, the merits of dieting, and the existence of Santa - or even more improbable, Mr. Kimura's wife! And speaking of spouses, isn't it time Minamo found a man? Her busybody mother sure seems to think so!

With trips to Hokkaido, Magical Land and a hilarious visit to the local karaoke club, this charming, comical, costumed volume of "Azumanga Daioh" proves once and for all that time spent with friends is time well-spent!
