Anime Review : Lucky Star!


A manga that wasn’t meant to be, is now a full blown anime. First seen in Kadokawa’s “Comptiq” magazine, now thrills the otaku world with random references and obscure trivia. Follow Izumi Konata, the fratenal twins Hiiragi Kagami and Tsukasa, and Takara Miyuki in an ever-so nostalgic setting of high school, doing their usual nonsense.

Seven episodes in (subbed) and the show seems solid. It should last a full 24-26 episodes as with it’s similar “sister” Azumanga Daioh. Granted that much of the character silliness seems to creep out from Pani Poni Dash!, but most of the pace and timing is similar to AD, without patronising it too much. Lucky star can be said to be vying for attention with Hidamari Sketch!, another slice of life anime which is more specialised and if possible even more random.

Onwards, The “Lucky Channel” segment is at times hilarious and yet misses due to a certain “over-age” ” loli” being a total bitch for no reason…. XD… I suppose that is what makes it entertaining. 😆 This is also a factor of it being so like-able. The best part of the show is undoubtedly the ED where the girls are in a karaoke lounge, singing their hearts out, with each ED is a different song. ( Admittedly looking at a closed door throughout the entire thing is a little silly, but hey…. cost issues)

Another thing to note, the chemistry between Kagami and Konata is at times electric. I can almost feel the loathing ( albeit not as serious as the word would imply) whenever Konata underperforms, and Kagami rebukes her. Heh, never thought that these VA were damn good to convey the hidden feelings. ( Ed: You idiot, don’t read too much into it, foo’)

Over and above, Lucky Star! is an anime for anyone looking for a laugh and fun laughing at themselves at times.

PS: I found a BMW 635CSi!!!!

Bmw in Lucky Star

Hmmm….. Seems like Konata is also a car-otaku…. she is referring to the car behind her XD
