    Lucky Star

    I tried to search to see if there was any topics about this anime but didn't find it. If I missed any let me know.

    Anyway, as my topic says, I'm really puzzled why there's a huge buzz in the anime community over this title. Why is it so popular? Is it really worth my time?
    I actually tried to watch one episode but I didn't understand it at all. Yeah, okay, good japanese practice but the gags are so fast and the references obscure(?) (or only for otaku?) that i don't get it.

    If anyone could explain it to me it would put my mind at ease.
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: What is the big deal about "Lucky Star"?

    ah yes lucky star is quiet a good anime, it fallows a group of high school girls through high school and a bit after high school, it has many refrenceses such as the "Timotei" in the public bath (timote was a brand of all natural shampoo and hair care products if i remember right), to me its very similar to Azumanga daoh. its kinda difficult of an anime to explain but its very worth it and if you dont get most of the refrences u can use wikipedia and google to find most of them easily

    Re: What is the big deal about "Lucky Star"?

    My bet is that moeness factor is what caused all the boom in anime community.. I mean, it's not THAT bad anime, but I dont think it deserves all the attention it gets.

    and yeah, first ep is pretty weak
    Tell me you've been bad. Nice and clear.

    Re: What is the big deal about "Lucky Star"?

    the first half of the first episode is like "what the fuck..." but after u get past it, it is a really good anime. also i think another reason is the absolutely cute girls and personalities of the series and konata's truly classic otaku life style, the random stuff things and people that apear through the series and the refrences to other animes like initial D, code geass, and the constant refrences to the melancholy of haruhei suzuka.

    i apologize about my last post i was in a completely dazed state almost none of my post made any sense lol

    24 episodes scheduled, with 15 released so far, and the 15th being yet another masterpiece

    So far, definitely my favorite anime of the year, and most probably my favorite anime of all times

    Re: Lucky Star

    I don't know... I don't like this anime...

    The only good part for me is the Lucky Channel part... I do remember one time that I fell asleep at episode 4, after that, I dropped the anime.

    Lots of things as usual, but the first couple of minutes were about Konata and the others going to the extremely great Suzumiya Haruhi no Gekisou concert~

    And there was this nice KonataxKagami moment at this point, kyaaa~

    Re: Lucky Star

    For me, i loved this animation alot =] The interesting parts are the characteristics of Otaku Konata-chan (she reminds me of the time when i was a gamer myself XD) and the hard-working but shy Kagami-chan (especially when it is about her own 'style') ^^;

    If I have to use wikipedia to understand the Japanese references (for jokes), its not worth my time. Its not like im going to laugh after I find out what the joke was about, its gotta be something I can understand.

    Its not that I dont understand most of the jokes in this anime, its just that I dont find them funny. They obsess over ridiculous things, and make them monotonous to the point of boredom. This anime is definitely boring, I dont want to watch 4 girls sit around and talk about the same thing for 10 minutes straight.

    This show is unique, but when you go with a unique approach, you sometimes make a poor choice. This is the case with this anime. Some of it is creative, but to me it just looks like a low budget show.

    The reason why it is popular is because the same people made Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu. Since that anime was very popular, all of their fans would definitely watch (and want to like) anything else these same people put out. Kinda like a popular band (Metallica ) who releases a completely crappy album that no one would listen to, but because they are a renowned band, the album goes gold.

    I would not consider myself a fan of the show, but it is definitely a love it or hate it type show. Everytime I give it a chance it proves not to deliver. Since it is episodic, it seems to have no hope of getting anywhere. Episodic anime are supposed to provide satisfaction in each episode.

    Despite me not liking it, this anime has it's moments. If they focused more on Konota's anime and game otaku-ness, it would be a lot funnier. These moments are rare and short-lived, when they should be more prevalent. I really dont care about how to eat certain types of food, or some boring random slice of life situation. The majority of the show is filler, and the slice of life situations would bore the hell out of me in real life.

    Re: What to do after Lucky Star ends

    The real question should be: is there even a life after the end of Lucky Star. Can the absence of Konata be called living???!!!!

    I guess the only thing we CAN do is waiting for the PS2 game, which we probably won't be able to play due to language barrier... We will also wait for the remaining soundtracks and then... and then.... wait for the second season of Suzumiya Haruhi...
