Eric Koziol - Azumanga Daioh Episode 4
"Battles come in all shapes, sizes, and types. When friends fight however, things get super real. As far as I'm concerned, the best characters of Azumanga Daioh may very well be the teachers. As I've aged, and become a teacher myself --the dynamics of all the characters, especially Yukari and Nyamo, increasingly make more sense. They make me laugh even harder.
I love how Yukari's attempt to sabotage the match only end up hurting her. Not only that, but she can't help throw a crack at Nyamo even when she herself, is in a moment of weakness. The rest of this "fight" pretty much goes as expected, but it still manages to be hilarious the entire way."
