The Comprehensive Kriegsaffe No. 9
, Explicit Content, Crack Fic
The various short Azumanga works of DB Sommer
- Recommended by Fish Called Waldo
- Pairing(s): Various, but Tomo/Yomi and Yukari/Nyamo occure the most
- Honestly, one of the strangest manga edits ever. Just over 20 'stories' in various albums. Very NSFW in most every way. The azu-girls make twisted and strange geek-jokes and other nearly, but not quite, out-of-character remarks. Almost in character for everyone.

Yukari is Free!
- Recommended by Zeke, Fish Called Waldo
- Pairing(s): None really; there's some Tomo/Yomi teasing and Kaorin is as Yandere for Sakaki as always
- These fics will make you happy. It's as simple as that. DB Sommer absolutely nails the characters, and the stories are mindless everyday fun, just like the show. (Except Azumanga Royale, which is a must-read for Battle Royale fans.)
Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.
- Recommended by a mystery lurker.
- Pairing(s): Some prevalent ones are the usual Sakaki/Kagura and Tomo/Yomi, but there are many, MANY pairings, many which are OC/OCs.
- It's basically Azumanga Daioh, crossed over with demons, aliens, furries, mecha combat, romantic subplots, and above all, an Ax-Crazy Yukari Tanizaki who is the biggest murderer and rapist this side of the internet. It mainly crosses over with Yotsuba&!, but also touches upon Ghost in the Shell, Code Geass, Team Fortress 2, and Portal to name a few. Relinked, due to the original board getting taken down.
- Recommended by Slaneesh Is Sexxxy
- Synopsis: Sakaki discovers she's not like other people. She is immortal.
- Tags: Tear jerker to the nth degree.
- Recommended by DoxieVee
- Synopsis: Yukari and Nyamo do some thinking, and realise that Mr. Kimura's persona as a pervert doesn't quite add up. As such, they launch an investigation into his behaviour, with surprising results.
- Recommended by Dont Kill Bugs
- Synopsis: Osaka finds a walking, talking Deus ex Machina in the woods near Chiyo's summer home, which provides nightmares and breaking speeches to each of the girls to help them become better people. Self-truths and Epiphanys ensue.
The End of Innocence
- Recommended by DontKillBugs
- Synopsis: Yukari, in a bad mood, gives the class an assignment: prove or disprove the existence of God.
- Recommended by Da Games Elite
- Synopsis: A tribute to the people of Japan. Sort of AU. The characters as they experience the quake and its aftermath. Their thoughts and actions as it shakes not only the earth, but the world of Osaka-chan. Written with respect and condolence.

Azumanga und Panzer!
- Recommended by vaguelyyaoilookingcatboy
- Synopsis: Tomo has achieved her dream to become a cop, investigating a cat-burglar.
Osaka vs The Space Monster
- Recommended by Eoppen
- Crossover with Girls und Panzer.
- Synopsis: The Azu girls have to transfer to Oarai after a disaster strikes their town, and decide to join the Tankery team.
, Chiyochan and the Rise of the Destroyers
and Azugirls vs The Black Hole
by X to the Zoltan
Rain of Terra
- Recommended by Fish Called Waldo, Selryam
- Synopsis: The only trilogy of Godzilla/Azumanga crossover work
ever that this troper has read. In Osaka vs The Space Monster, Osaka becomes the savior of the world from the evil clutches of the Xians from Planet X — Involving Mothra, Godzilla himself, King Ceaser, and King Ghidora. Sort of.
- Recommended by Sporkaganza
- Synopsis: Again it's a Yotsubato crossover, and again it "partners" Tomo and Torako. In this one, however, Tomo and Torako aren't related; rather, they are police officers who have been partnered together, investigating the murder of none other than Asagi Ayase. Will they be able to catch the culprit, or will Torako's emotions hinder the investigation? Also, Osaka runs a taco stand...

- Recommended by Vitruvius
- Synopsis: The girls take a trip to the United States - specifically to Raccoon City. Largely follows the events of the Remake.
with Lines by 'Super' Section-Eight and Inks by 'Excelsior' X to the Zoltan (crossover)
Azumanga Daioh IN SPACE!
by X to the Zoltan (AU obviously, a teeny bit of Yuri, nothing physical)
- Recommended by K.o.R, Fish Called Waldo, Selryam
- Synopsis: Azumanga set in the Star Wars universe. Vastly different story to Star Wars but with enough recognizable elements.
by nattororo (NOTE: it's SFW but it's hosted in Danbooru, which has porn ads!)
Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.
Osaka and the Yellow Sign
- Recommended by Da_Nuke
- Synopsis: Azumanga Daioh with Touhou characters. Yukari Yakumo is, well, Yukari, Yuyuko is Nyamo, Remilia is Chiyo, Sakuya is Sakaki, Hong Meiling is Kagura, Pachu is Osaka, Marisa is Tomo, Reimu is Yomi, Alice is Kimura, and Flandre is Chiyo-chichi.
by Kriegsaffe (Yuri
Fist of the Necoconeco
- Recommended by Fish Called Waldo, Zemyla
- Pairing(s): Kaorin/Sakaki, in awesome, glowing, Great-Old-One-Punching proportions.
- Synopsis: The only Cthulhu and Azumanga Daioh crossover — with hints of Exalted, Unknown Armies and shoutouts to Darkest Of Hillside Thicket and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure — and hilarious for it. The Azu-girls deal with cultists and a visit to Carcosa. Any more explanation would give away half the humor, sadly, but, basically, Osaka, The King in Yellow and eventually pottery, not that it isn't obvious.
by Guu-Chan (Yuri
- Recommended by Fish Called Waldo, Stratagemini
- Pairing(s): Kaorin/Sakaki, with a bit of Tomo/Yomi
- Synopsis: Another twisted crossover of Azumanga Daioh. Crosses as many high school shonen fighting series as possible and turns Azumanga Daioh into a fighting shonen series. Basically it's Angel Densetsu in written form
- 2 Reviews
- Recommended by Andyjay
- Pairing(s): Yukari/Nyamo (but it's not the main focus)
- Synopsis: A Dark Fic and then some, but more Film Noir-ish than Wangsty. Yukari becomes hooked on hard drugs and her life begins to spin out of control. Nyamo tries to help out, but is it too late?
- Tags: Dark Fic, violence, sex, drug use
- Recommended by Atlas EXE, STK, Umbriss
- Pairing(s): Sakaki/Kagura
- Synopsis: A romantic piece about Sakaki and Kagura's relationship, told from the point of view of Kagura, both in and after high school.
- Recommended by Klon, So We Ate Them
- Pairing(s): Chiyo/Osaka
- Synopsis: A nice story about Osaka and Chiyo full of romance, tragic misunderstandings and the works...
by Salmon Pink
Nyamo and the Fight
- Recommended by Sirkku Jää Keiju
- Pairing(s): Sakaki/Kagura
- Synopsis: Sakaki finds another cat and hesitates, in fear of chasing her away.
by Miss Prince
- Recommended by Pichu
- Pairing(s): Yukari/Nyamo.
- Synopsis: Yukari attempts to paint Minamo as a delinquent, Minamo tries to paint herself as innocent, and the girls never do hear the end of the story.
- Recommended by polooglu
- Pairing(s): Yukari/Nyamo, Kagura/OC
- Synopsis: An emotional and increasingly intense on-going story about two best friends who might just become something more. Can get really dark at times, but is thankfully offset by many heartwarming moments and a relaxed, careful pace.
