Takeru & Hikari is an anime series and a spin-off to Azumanga Preschool made by both Azumanga Animation and Toei Animation. The anime would feature characters from Digimon Adventure 01 and Gakuen Alice.


Featuring two young kids Takeru Takaishi and Hikari Yagami who both do misadventures and use their imagination (like imagining anything make believe) in this slice of life, comedy, and fantasy series. Their friend Mikan Sakura from 5th grade elementary school is kind of jealous to the 2 at first since they think they're more better than her. But then she leans that talent isn't the only thing, it's being friends.

Opening and Closing Themes[]

The opening theme is "Sun Day Sky Life" (a new song performed by Oranges & Lemons), and the closing theme is "Imagine The Night" (which is "One More Night" by Takako Mamiya with modified lyrics, and sung by the main characters).




Unlike other Azumanga Daioh spin-offs, this would feature the Kuricoder Pops Orchestra, Oranges & Lemons, and Masaki Kurihara score; and score similar to the ones heard in the DePatie-Freleng, Peanuts, and Chuck Jones animated projects of the 70's and 80's.
