I came across this thread. I have compared the two (and their characters). While different in tone, I think it's kind of interesting that Azumanga is compared to the Peanuts
, because SZS has referenced them at least twice. Both series are like the Peanuts
in that they are Slice of Life
about a cast in which everyone has a specific quirk.
I made a comparison of Kafuka to Osaka (because they both aren't known by their real name and they are both the Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant
of the cast), although now that I know about Kanako Oora, I see she's much more like Osaka.
