Early Poster

Azumanga College is a prequel to Azumanga Daioh made by Azumanga Animation, it takes place before the actual Azumanga Daioh anime happened.


Taking place before Azumanga Daioh, the two teachers Yukari & Nyamo were first classmates in college. They both become rivals at first but then suddenly become friends in the middle of the anime. Their goal is to become high school teachers (of course Yukari learning about different languages in order to become a language teacher and Nyamo learning how to be a P. E. teacher. After they finally finish college near the end of the anime, they finally become high school teachers.

Opening and Closing ThemesEdit

The opening theme is Yukari and Nyamo's song "Tenshoku Equal Kaikan no Housoku", and the closing theme is "In The Curve" (which is "Blind Curve" by Kikuchi Momoko with modified lyrics).
