I follow this person on Twitter, and I'm sure she means this literally, and I'm OK with it.

That was really really good.

As a middle aged man, I almost wish the girls were a little less sexually drawn, as I think I'd enjoy the anime for just the comedy.

I'm confused. The one in red is the teacher, and the one in blue, the student, has only her head and forearms exposed and isn't particularly chesty or curvy.

I've seen a few clips of this show in YouTube. It looks hilarious. But some of the scenes portray girls in very short skirts or with quite protruding chests. It's definitely not as bad as a lot of animes. It's just that I'm in my mid 40s, and I teach older girls, I just really can't find any of it pleasant.

I want to stress that I'm not bothered by anyone who enjoys the show. It's just me.

I for some reason assumed this comment chain was about Nichijou. Then Yotsuba&. And now finally I see it's Azumanga daioh. I'm not very bright today.

maybe try one of the two former if you haven't seen them, the humor is seemingly kinda similar (yotsuba& is related to azumanga daioh iirc, spin off or smth) and iirc they're less sexualized than that one.

I get the argument that always putting younger girl characters in skirts is just like, reflecting reality, that's a common uniform, so that shows up even in very nonsexual shows sometimes, but a legit reason I don't watch a lot of anime anymore is because of the way so many go out of their way to draw the fucking underage characters bending over in tiny skirts and such. Its fucking foul. They could portray a realistic skirt length and not be a fucking pervert about it, even if it maybe seems a little short to a foreign audience, but they mostly just don't. Not that american TV is amazing about that sort of thing but its not as pervasive.

Yotsuba& is only a manga. Its relation to Azumanga Daioh is just that it shares an author, Kiyohiko Azuma. The two mangas might take place in the same universe but that's just fan theories. There's a few uncomfortable scenes in Yotsuba& with Fuuka, involving Jumbo, from what I've read so far (~1.5 volumes)

Nichijou doesn't have anything uncomfortable that I can remember.
