Early Poster

Sakaki & Kaorin is an Azumanga Daioh spin-off anime series made by Azumanga Animation, taking place after Azumanga Daioh. For some reason, Chiyo wears her old pigtails (used from episodes 1-20), and Miruchi & Yuka use their designs from episode 12.


Taking place after the six girls graduated from high school. But then when 4 of the girls split up because they went to college (except Sakaki), Chiyo Chan and Osaka were the only two girls who were still hanging out with each other. Until Kaorin was told by her mother she should get a house of her own and have someone to take care of her. Then she came to Sakaki's new home and decided to live with her to help out on the house work for her and to protect her from danger. Then Chiyo Chan and Osaka came to their house and wanted to live with them and Kaorin didn't mind, and their wish came true. Then they meet their lesser known friends from high school and elementary school who are Chihiro, Hiroka and her friend Mizuki who have been friends to the girls since Azumanga Daioh are now Sakaki and Kaorin's best friends (and Chihiro's servants) and most of the time give them jobs to do with other female students from their high school in Chihiro's clubroom, Miruchi & Yuka who were Chiyo Chan's classmates from back in grade school are now Chiyo Chan and Osaka's best friends, Mr. Kimura and his family are now Sakaki and Kaorin's neighbors since they live next door to their house, and Yukari and Nyamo are now the helpers to Sakaki and Kaorin. But then, when The Tenjouin Girls (Saki, Rin, and Aya, from To Love-Ru) showed up, they noticed the 4 girls were more popular, so they make their own clubroom at the girl's high school to compete against the girls from Chihiro's Clubroom. Later on, Tomo, Yomi, and Kagura decided to attend Chihiro's Clubroom since they were finished with college.
