Y'know, I will say this for Azumanga Daioh: it was done in 26 episodes/4 volumes. ... also, yeah. Thanks for the alternate copy of the fleas jokes. I'm glad I wasn't missing anything. Other than that, not much to say. I agree with most of your points, and the more I reread the series, the more I wish that Shive was the artist part of a writer/artist combo.
Whatcha mean about Azumanga Daioh, Cat Bob?
Oh, I love Azumanga Daioh. I was just saying that, even if Mr. AHR doesn't like it, she has to admit that it has this over EGS.
