* Kimura at the first sports festival. "::clears throat:: ...FIRST PLACE VICTORYYYYYYYYYY! ::slowly walks off the stage::"
** Pretty much [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftAMtTH6mKQ everything Kimura does]].
* Chiyo-chan starting her second year by putting a first-year student who calls her a "little kid" in his place.
* Nyamo's drunken [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=VY8L_apFieE sex ed lesson]] is one of the most memorable parts of the series.
** The best part of all was the next morning when Chiyo asks Nyamo to explain something and the growing look of sheer terror on Nyamo's face.
*** To say nothing of the reaction of Tomo, Yomi, Osaka, and Kagura, who now have a new-found respect for Nyamo.
** The fact that it's essentially the only thing - during three years of High School, no less - that gets [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Osaka's]] undivided attention cements it as Nyamo's Moment of Awesome.
* This troper could also be persuaded to go with a couple of scenes involving Sakaki (of course). During a snowball fight, Kagura throws a snowball at Chiyo. Sakaki manages to intercept it and briefly keep it in motion before throwing it back, all without breaking it. She missed Kagura, but not by much...
** Clearly, the shot was a distraction giving time for the second girl to unleash the main attack. Also, this troper now has a new favorite character. ''That'' is the definition of CoolBigSis.
** Even Kagura thought it was awesome! Usually, the reaction of someone dodging a snowball (or anything else not too dangerous) is "Nyaa! Missed me!"
** I found the manga version funnier. Chiyo and Osaka are throwing snow balls at each other (and repeatedly missing). When Osaka finally lands one in Chiyo's face, Kagura asks them if she can play. Osaka quickly recruits her onto her team. By the next panel Chiyo was covered in snow bahaha.
*** The snowball that landed in Chiyo's face was thrown by Kagura. Which doesn't make the ensuing [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomp Snowball Fight]] any less awesome though.
* Yukari ''finally'' finding a weakness in Nyamo in the third vacation episode -- and milking it for all it's worth.
** This troper finds the best part about this to be everybody else's reactions to it.
** "U-umm...can you teach me to juggle?" Awwwwwww...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37mPoKQijj8 Osaka's moment with the knife]]. There's a wake-up call Yukari-sensei won't be forgetting any time soon.
** This troper will never forget Yukari's face.
* Also, during the third year relay race, a boy is taunting Chiyo's lack of speed, unwittingly annoying Sakaki. She wordlessly whips her band off and ties her hair up in it, before proceeding to, having been handed the baton, [[strike:regain the lead]] ''destroy'' the competition.
** Which unfortunately is totally ruined later, but it was still cool. Chiyo's exuberant cheering stunning even Tomo was an added bonus for this troper.
** And even more awesome in that, in the manga at least, she later ''leaves that same boy in the dust'', who can only [[OhCrap look at her in shock]].
** One final touch in the manga, english translation at least: the title of the strip is "Watch And Learn." You're plenty {{Badass}}, Miss Sakaki. You just don't know it.
** Also, shortly before Sakaki's part in the race, where Osaka managed to get passed by every other participant. Cue the cut to a screaming Kagura passing every single person but one, with the other members of the cast commenting on how fast she is.
* Sakaki finally gets to be alone with Maya at Chiyo's house. Though she had hardly shown much emotion up to that point, she ends up literally ''rolling on the floor'' because she's so happy (watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8Civihqefw here, starting at 1:00]]). It's not a crowning moment of awesome, but rather a crowning moment of awwwwwwwwwwwwwsome.
** This one really belongs [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming here]].
*** It's okay,it's Sakaki. She gets a pass.
* Chain reaction standing ovation for Chiyo. Beautiful.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=374OliQCzV4 BANNNNNNZZZZAAAAAAAAIIIIII!!!!!!]]
* Yomi [[spoiler:decking Tomo]] during the last part of the last episode.
** [[StreetFighter "SHORRRRRRRYUKEN!"]]
* In the manga version, when Yukari finally [[spoiler:gets her present and starts singing happy birthday]] ...to herself. ('''Students''': "Is she...happy?")
* Sakaki singing karaoke. It's awesome in both the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g54GLRjZTo0 original Japanese]] and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOE-fGr7jQk English dub]].
* Sakaki deciding to suck up the pain and pet the cat in Episode 11.
-->'''Sakaki''': I can't keep running away. I have to face it. And then overcome it. ''("it" referring to the cat's gnashing teeth, clamped down on her fingers)''
* Tomo asks [[ChildProdigy Chiyo]] riddles, and she gets them all wrong. Tomo then asks [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Osaka,]] who gets them all ''right.''
* The most Awesome scene of all was when [[spoiler:Mayaa, the Iriomote Cat, showed up [[http://www.mangareader.net/azumanga-daioh/3/139 to protect Sakaki]] from Kamineko and the other biting cats. All other moments pale in comparison.]]
** And before that, Kagura repeatedly hitting Kamineko after he bites Sakaki.
* Whenever Sakaki puts on a serious face, she's preparing to unleash one.
