Lucky star is one of those unique Comedy anime that comes very rarely. It manages to put a comedic twist to normal everyday occurances, and many pop culutre references. The entire show is not your typical slice of life high school comedy anime, rather its show structure follows more of a western style of comedy, a sitcom to be exact. Instead of having a direct storyline, like most anime viewers are used to, it focuses more of everyday observations and Jpop culture as their source of comedy.
---Theres always a storyline no matter how broad it is. Many ppl say theres no story line but, there has to be a "story" of sorts or else this stuff cant be funny. If you had to put a plot to this show it would "A group of high school children trying to make it all the way through high school." With such a broad plot, the creators can do as they please. By the way, that is how most western sitcoms can list 5-10 seasons without it getting old (i.e. Simpsons, Family Guy, Cheers, etc.) Mind you thats the only connection this show has with a western sitcom.
---I have noticed many people bash the begging episodes of the show but i found them equally entertaining as the rest of them. It really depends on what the viewer does in their own daily lives is what truly makes this show funny. Somone who doesnt eat curry/rice or grilled meat sticks for dinner with their family wont understand a joke about it. But with all the jokes and references in this show you're bound to laugh out loud at all they throw at you! They've thoguht of everything for this show.
---Art and animation of the show is your typical comedy anime fair. Simple characters simple backgrounds simple static objects. But they manage to take "simple" to a whole different level. For example, the characters are only shown from the waist up for about 80% of the entire show. But the characters are drawn very simplistic and the coloring for each looks like it doesnt exeed 12 different colors for each person for the most part. But they are definitely drawn in a cute manner, if thats your thing. The simple-ness is what gives the show its charm too. The art style is so popular and easy to draw im sure you'll find spoofs for dozens of other non related characters around the internet.
---The Sound is your standard comedy sound efects from light hearted piano songs, to bing bangs and bongs, they're all there and accounted for. Music is mostly absent from the show aside from helping out certain jokes.
---You will definitely notice the lack of background music in the show but with such a powerful seiyu cast, one could understand that they didnt want to distract from the well executed voice acting. Of course most people will notice Aya Hirano and maybe even Minori Chihara. Its hard to believe that most of the main characters are voiced by relatively newcomers. Which also helps seperate Lucky Star from sounding the same as all the other school anime out there. You'll enjoy Kagami's singing voice by the way.
With the uniqe sound comes the "unique" (or not so unique) character types associated with each seiyu. Theres also ALOT more characters but you'll have to watch it to see them all ^_^ Speaking of characters you'll actually end up seeing all of them fairly regurlarly. Either supporting cast or main cast. By the end of the show, you'll get the feeling that not one person recieved more time than another. Even the extra characters get more than enough airtime to fully acknowledge them as essential parts of the anime.
---The enjoyment factor is through the roof in my opinion. The comedy aspect of this show covers so many angles and hits so many things perfectly its hard not to give a perfect score. I find it very hard for somone to hate this anime. That is, if you dont like japanese pop cultre, anime references and funny common occurences. If youre that type then why are you watching anime? ^_^
---Also, if you dont like western style sitcoms where the end of every episode will always leave the same way they started, this is definitely not for you. If youre looking for a romantic comedy or bloody action school go somewhere else. If you're willing to give up about 20 minutes of your time for pure entertainment, WATCH THIS SHOW!
If you find anything funnier pm me i'll give it a shot but for now this the funniest anime i've watched to date ^_^ read more
"This is so BORING!" is what most of you will say if you watch it.
I'll admit, that is what I thought at first, and I stopped watching on the first episode when they were talking about which side is the head of a "chocolate cornet bread"... But after a while, I gave it another try, and this time, I watched patiently and watched through the entire first episode. I was still not impressed, and still bored. I moved on to the next episode, and as you can tell by my over-all rating of a 10, I loved the rest. Now here is why:
The story, is non-existent (as I will put no emphasis on story in this review). But that was one of the main reasons I loved it. There was no tension, no fighting, no drama, no heart-breaks. Just pure comedy.
Comedy? Well, there's nothing that will make you roll over. But, there are countless moments where it makes you smile, many times even chuckles if you get the jokes.
The comedy works in this anime by having the characters go through moments where you go like, "OH I feel you!", "I totally know what you mean!, or "Ah so glad I am not the only one who does that!". That's why it's really funny in a way, making this the most accurate "slice of life" I have ever viewed.
The English dub for this anime is pretty amazing (for once), the voice actor for Konata, the main character, does a wonderful job of bring her to life. The characters are all likable, but Konata is one of the best characters I have seen, and she manages to do all that without geass powers or sword skills, too. I don't want to spoil anything, so I will leave it up to you to find out more about why I find Konata so great.
Also, it's a huge plus if you are exposed to Japanese culture (real life), because many of the jokes is about the daily life there and you will only get the jokes if you have experienced it (there aren't that many, so don't worry).
To sum it up, Lucky Star is about the daily life of the girls, there won't be any conflicts like there are in many slice of life anime, this anime is very peaceful, and you can relate to many of the characters.
Give it a try! Watch a few clips of it! Type in "Funny Lucky Star Moments" on Youtube and see for yourself! If you like it, WATCH IT. Don't marathon it, in fact, watch an episode after a long day, or better yet, watch it to calm your nerves after something like Code Geass/Death Note. Thank you read more
When I first looked into Lucky Star, I thought I was going to be impressed. People in the anime club I help run wanted to watch this series so bad and it ended up in 4th place, so we weren't able to show it this semester. Still, I wanted to know what the appeal of Lucky Star was. The chibi art made the anime look unique and interesting, and I thought that I couldn't go wrong with an anime series that was so popular. This is where "looks can be deceiving" really comes into play.
Despite the cute art, which got annoying very quickly, Lucky Star really fell on its face form the get-go. The story had nothing to offer. Basically, you spend twenty-four episodes watching a group of high school girls run around, talk to each other, make jokes, and dance. I have completely summarized the entire series for you in that last sentence, and I'm not kidding. Each episode was a repeat as the last, except for character problems and issues, and after every episode I said, "Alright, it still has to get better from here," and it never did. The only thing that ever improved was the Lucky Channel, but that was because I didn't have to hear Akira's annoying squeaking in the last three or so episodes.
I know that the story is suppose to be based around a comedic high school cast, but to be honest, the comedy was terrible. In order to get most of the jokes, one would have to know a lot in video games, anime, and Japanese puns. Now, I don't know a lot of video games or Japanese puns, so those jokes failed, and the anime jokes that I did get surfaced once in a while, and that type of comedy was absolutely terrible. I think I snickered maybe once or twice during the entire series. Yes, the entire series.
Along with Lucky Star's terrible story and comedy choice, I found myself hating most of the characters. The only half-way decent characters were shown in the last half of the anime, and those characters really weren't anything special. Most of the weren't dynamic, lacking originality, and went along with the same thing over and over again. When those sparks of originality were shown, they were quickly covered by the same old, bland things that happened through out the entire series. A great example comes from Konata, the main girl with blue hair and green eyes. She runs around every episode, talks about food, anime, video games, and how she was late or tired because she stayed up all night playing video games. Kagami, one of the lavender haired twins, is exactly the same way - smart, angered easily, and is very poor at house chores. Miyuki, the pink haired girl with glasses, is klutsy, "moe", intelligent, and formal with her speech. I could go on and on, but I don't think it's needed.
With the characters, art, and story quickly falling apart, I turned to something I thought would work - the music. I learned quickly, however, that the music was only a little better than everything else. Some of the songs sounded like they were recorded on a cellphone and then placed into the show. It wasn't that the quality was bad, but rather than the music used was very bland, unoriginal, and lacked dynamic, not that the story had any of those or anything. The music fit the series alright, but by itself, the music would just be a waste of space on whatever drive you would be listening to it on. Even the opening theme was annoying.
So, with all of these things said, I'm surprised that I made it to the last episode. Now, it's safe to say that just because I didn't enjoy it doesn't mean that others won't. Obviously, the MAL rating for Lucky Star fights any point that I've made against the series. However, I will not be recommending Lucky Star to any of my friends. Ever. In fact, I will tell them to avoid it, and to be fair in my fight, I don't think it deserves the popularity it has. Sure it's cute, but that's about it. read more
This is my first review in MAL and I'm gonna use it on Lucky Star and to be honest, I'm going to be pretty harsh on this one.
I watched Lucky Star because I heard people speaking wonderful things of this anime and then I said I should watch it and see how it is. The pain, I couldn't stand it. Nevertheless, I tried to watch it and see if I could find something interesting but sadly I couldn't
Story: Pretty poor indeed, because there isn't a plot. The anime only talks about the life of 4 high school girls... 5 later. There isn't anything else, other than talking about their usual lifes, food, animes, videogames, etc.
Art: The art was fine, I really liked the colors and how beautiful it looked but sometimes the art was bad in other parts. All I can say is that sometimes it looked great and sometimes it looked bad.
Sound: The seiyuus were great, especially Konata and Kagami but sometimes some voices ruined the mood like almost all the sales clerk that appeared because almost all of them had the same seiyuu and that ruined it. The opening to be honest was pretty bad; the music was kind of bad and the endings... the only one I liked was when Konata sang Chala Head Chala but the other ones were bad, especially when they started to put real actors in the ending.
Character: Hardly, there isn't a development there. The only thing that can be rescued is the fact of the interaction between Konata and Kagami but after all everything is dull. Let's put it this way; Konata is your typical otaku, Kagami the tsundere, Tsukasa the shy girl and Miyuki the one that is the intelligent.
Enjoyment: Bad, pretty bad. The anime is supposed to make you laugh or relate yourself to one of the character; I couldn't do that. The jokes and things that happen didn't amuse me at all and the characters the only one I could relate a little was Konata because she like me loves videogames and animes but that is all.
Overall: This anime isn't for anyone. If you like anime with plot and character development then get away from here, you will never like Lucky Star. The anime itself isn't bad but as I said, it isn't for everyone. Some people might like it and enjoy the characters and the jokes that I couldn't get but for me, this anime is quite overrated; not even all the references of Haruhi could save it. read more
Both series are about the everyday happenings a group of high school girls. They both follow their daily lives with anime humour thrown in.
Kind of obvious, really-- both are based on 4komas, deal with the daily life of a group of girls, COMEDY, et cetera.
Both are similar in that the main characters are all female, and similar personalities.
Both are slice of life comedies featuring a group of a high school girls and their random adventures throughout high school life.
Its both about the daily life from Schoolgirls whithout a big Storyline.
It's based on gags about School, games and Japanese Daily life.
Both series have similar plot lines and characters. Both are also "anything goes" when it comes to topics and are pretty episodic.
They both revolve around school, hanging out, eating and having fun.
Both is about absolutely nothing and really cute. I like Lucky Star better though, I think it's way funnier.
Similar comedy style, its offbeat and centers around the lives of a group of high school girls.
Lucky Star's comedy is mostly being carried by Hirano Aya, and the rest of the gang play off her character. For Azumanga Daioh, everyone on the team works together with the others, so they function like a group, each is funny in her own way and they play off among on another. Lucky Star is basically talking about high school nothing, ala the Seinfeld Style. For Azumanga Daioh, there are very small arcs for the purpose of driving forward humor. Both 4koma-turned-anime shows about school with Azumanga Daioh being a little more slapstick and less Otaku humor driven.
Azumanga Daioh and Lucky Star are comedies that rely on slice of life moments without a definite plot. Both follow a group of Highschool girls and the humour is derived from the interaction between the members of the cast, most of which display a zany behaviour. Azumanga Daioh's appeal might be wider while Lucky Star includes some otaku jokes that might be lost to many but both titles are likely to interest the same kind of public.
Both are utterly plotless relying solely on the personalities of each of the characters for the comedy. Lucky star is, in effect, Azumanga daioh in a brand new skin.
Both animes are about a group of normal (or not so normal) girls just trying to make their way through high school. These series have lots of running gags and clever one-liners that you'll come to remember them for. While Lucky Star is more for the otakus since it contains lots of references to other anime and Japanese culture, both contain characters you will fall in love with and will make you look at school and life in general in a humorous type of way.
Slapstick, crazy, weird comedy. Many references to Japanese culture, high school girls, etc.
If you like slice of life anime like Azumanga Daioh but want a more wacky show watch Lucky Star.
Well, they have a similar feel to it and they're both slice of life and comedy anime. The difference though is that Lucky Star has references to several anime and to the Japanese culture. But other than that, both shows are pretty similar in following the lives of a group of high school girls.
Both are about the everyday lives of several high school girls as they graduate... Both series also offers a dynamic cast of characters!
Two titles that have completly crazy main characters with mixed unenviable history about hm... just life ...school life XD
Both these shows revolve around a group of high school girls, their experience of high school and their personal lives. But in contrast to Lucky Star's brightly colored animations azumanga's animation is more dull to put focus on the fact that it wants you to pay more attention to the jokes and the physical comedy.
Both are completely random comedies set in high school, and neither of them really have all that much of a plot. The main difference is really just that Lucky Star uses a lot of references to other shows in almost every single episode, so Azumanga might be a lot easier to "get" for people who haven't seen that many anime-series before.
Both have a fairly small cast of interesting characters taking part in very everyday events, and both are extremely satisfying.
Both have a awesome set of girls as the main leads. They follow the "Slice of life" genere with their fancy twists and turns. Major comedy in them as well. If you are a all around fan of anime, these series have lots of puns and whatnot. You can't go wrong with this.
It´s the same type of light humor. The series shows the life of a group of female high school friends and individual moments of them which are very funny. Also their teacher is a women maybe in her late 20's who lives alone, is aloof , single, and crazy.
They both star high school girl and talks about their everyday lives and you get to learn more abotu Japanese culture!
Lucky Star and Azumanga Daioh are both lovable for the same reason: the beauty of nothing really happening. Both simply follow the lives of a small group of lovable characters in their daily lives, with tons of comedic material thrown in. Nothing super natural, no magic or space fights, nobody jumping into the air 50 feet at exactly the same time and hight as a long time rival only to kick each other's legs several times and fall...
In both these anime they have a school girl life with tons of friends and laughters, so if you like one of there. You should watch the other!=3
It is like - looking through a reflection of itself. LUCKY STAR IS AZUMANGA DAIOH!!! Only focused on one year of H.S., not 3...
It is also based on high school life. The charaters are almost the same way, but Lucky Star has Konata. She is an anime lover, a gamer, and the best cramer you'll ever meet! Kagami is kinda like Yomi. Always telling Konata to do her homework. And seems to always make her point. Tsukasa is like Osaka! Only Osaka is funnier, and Tsukasa is Stupider. Then brains with the biggest breats, Myuki! Overall i have to say Lucky Star is one of the funniest animes out there. Hope you watch and enjoy!
If you liked the everyday life of a bunch of pretty cute high school girls, sometimes facing really odd and funny scenes, then you must see Lucky Star.
Both animes have certain quirkyness to them there both random and cute. They make you smile and laugh sometimes non stop.Well for me that is.
It is just more slice-of-life really. But still, don't take this as more of the same. Azumanga Daioh has more of your "everyday people", leaving out otakus and a lot of cultural and anime references. It is also the closest you'll get to the "real-life" of japanese high-scholers.
They are both about a group of high school girls going through comedic scenario's. They both have small comedic acts with the teachers, too.
Both are insanibly cute , with humour and are sunny and are about everyday life of school girls
both are masterpieces and a must see
The characters in both series are very memorable. The environment in both series is pretty similar, without a flashy "I gotta save the world" storyline, but focusing on what friendship in high school is like, and little details that we experience everyday. If you are already out of high school, it is a plus!
both feature very little plot, both focus on a group of high school girls, both REALLY random, and both VERY FUNNY.
Both of these are very hilarious comedies that revolve around typical groups of friends and the things they do in and out of school.
Well if you don't count the fact that both are about the daily lives of regular (but very eccentric) High School Japanese friends and the wacky adventures they apparently follow out of nothing to start with I don't really find much >.>
Just the day in the life of a school girl, no involvement of the male sex, so there is no room for silly romances but a lot of comedy. It brings about several characteristics that one may find to be similar in both series. The intelligent, the brave, the quiet or cool...etc. Both are hilarious and down right cute sometimes. If you like one, you'll definitely like the other.
ok...lets try this again. if you love lucky star, you will love azumanga daioh. they are both delightfully spontanious, about high school girls, and are a slice of life anime. i personaly love them both, and i even can match the characters to each other.
In a simple sense, both deals with highschool life, simplicity, and randomness. Only that Lucky star is livelier than Azumanga Daioh.
Both are slice of life genre, No real plot as expected but more of a collage of just random events and awesome moments which a bunch of girls get up to. School style setting, both are really similar but different at the same time in terms of humour. If you enjoy Azumanga Daioh i expect that you'll enjoy Lucky Star.
Both are slice-of-life comedies set around the lives of a group of highschool girls. Both are episodic, and both are nonsensical at times.
If you just want to relax and chill out with some light jokes this is the anime for you! Both were originally 4 panel manga, therefore they are very similar in how the story progresses throughout the anime.
Azumanga Daioh like Lucky Star originated from 4-panel manga. Like Lucky Star Azumanga Daioh focuses around a school life genre, but is a more comical and has a larger character selection.
Both not really storyline based, just day to day activities of a group of girls, and the funny moments.
Both I find very relaxing to watch as well as hilarious.
they talk about so many random things!!! if your into Azumanga Daioh..then you really got to watch Lucky Star!!
Both are comedys focusing on the everyday lives of a group of normal school girls. Both have no real plot and are just simple, funny and real fun to watch.
A group of high-school girls and segments of their everyday lives. Features rapid-fire comedic sketches and doesn't have much plot, other than the graduation ceremony that both have.
Both are stories of girls in school, in which each of the characters has a unique personality and fun.
Funny situations in the classroom, school trips and trips with friends, are what characterize these girls. In addition to teachers a little "different" (not to say bizarre), but very funny.
- Somehow same feeling with both anime (Girls, Comedy, plotless, etc..)
- Friendship between girls (In Azumanga 6 main girls and in Lucky 4 main girls)
- Teachers also something to do with girls (In Lucky teacher play MMO with one of girl, In Azumanga mainly keep helping girls)
- Both medium long (Azumanga 26 episodes, Lucky 24 episodes)
A classic Anime, in the genre of slice of life. This anime has spawned tons of memes.
If you have not seen this, it is definitely worth a look.
Both are Slice of Life. They are about the lives of girls in high school, each with their own peculiarities.
Again, centers on the daily life of school girls with some comedy elements. Lucky Star is somehow more down to earth with less weird and irrational twists. Even so, the warm, relaxed and cozy atmosphere that the watcher gets while watching the two animes are quite similar
They're practically the same. No real plot, but just some ordinay high school girls wanting to have some fun.
This is even closer to Azumanga Daioh than Nichijou was. Lucky Star has the same concept, girls, hanging out, asking the others abot how they do things and blablabla.
Both are about girls attending high school. Neither have much of a huge plot. Just high school girls doing their thing. They both share their cute and funny moments and have silly, quirky characters.
Similar humor, Second plan doesn't exist, strange draw style.
Both series have topics about little things.
They're both funny, Slice of Life type anime that focus on girls in high school doing what you'd expect. Personally I think Lucky Star is a little harder to get it to due to it's starting point, and it doesn't have as much charm as Azumanga, but this isn't too much of a bother seeing as everything done right is done really well. Lucky Star's main character is an Otaku, which adds whole new comedy to the table as well as adding in reference to hard core anime fans. If you like Azumanga Daioh, i'm pretty sure you'll like this, so why not give it a shot =)
Lucky Star and Azumanga Daioh are very similar as they both focus on school, trips, and character personality. They both are so similar.
Life of high school girls hanging out and making the best of their years before college. You will totally be like, "I know, right?" :3
Both are mostly plotless funny slice of life animes about high school girls.
Both of these anime are of the "slice-of-life" style. They follow a group of girls and their daily life through school. I would recommend both of these to people who like a laid back anime that has good humor.
Both stories are comedic(which could make you laugh very episode) and is a splice of life genre. the protagonist in both series are pretty much the same, has their unique way to deal with their own "life" problems(of some sorts) in a funny way(yep, funny and interesting way).Most the setting surrounds school(yes, school life) and around the city.
Azumanga Daioh and Lucky Star both focus on the every day life of a group of high school girls with quirky personalities. The somewhat random situations and conversations end up to be comical most of the time.
This story tells about slice of life of female school students.. Like Azumanga Daioh, the story was rule by female and there was no male actors.. These two story play the normal funny life of students..
Both made by KyoAni, both deal w/ 4 girls, both are moe shows
Both made by Kyoto Animation, graphic styles are similiar
both tells a story about four girls, both are school comedies
This is very similar because both animes have four main charaters and slowly start to gain more charaters toward the end. They both express chibi scenes to make childish comedy which i could help but laugh at. The only differnce is that K-on is based around learning music and Lucky star tries to referance anything they can while at school.
Lucky Star and K-ON focused more on the drama/slice of life and comedy.
So, if you found Lucky star worth watching, then so is K-ON.
There are also character that act for the "moe", the serious one, etc.
Both of these Animes share a good amount of comedy as well as being slice-of-life shows.
Not only that but all four of the main girls from each series have a similar personality. Like...
-Konata=Ritsu, both of them seem to have a hyperactive attitude and act not as normal as others. -Kagami=Mio, both share a good study habits and are really smart. Plus they can act really strict .
-Tsukasa=Yui, both of them don't really like to study that much and they really like to eat sweets.
-Miyuki=Tsumugi, they both come form wealthy families and they also have a sweet personality.
Both animes follow four average girls on their "journey" through high school. both sets of girls look rather young for high schoolers, but face similar struggles as those that real high schoolers face. Also, while K-ON! has more to do with music, both have great songs! These comedies are both so great and if u like one of them you'll definitely like the other!!! hope this helps!!!
In a daily life of a girl, there are countless joys hidden just waiting to be uncovered. Sometimes, the most dull and boring of places can actually be the most fun once you found a reason to cherish it. In the midst of all this, music serves as the glue in the joyful adventure.
'K-ON!' and 'Lucky Star' established themselves as some of the top contenders of simple, carefree 'FUN' without having the need to cross the boundary. In each of the series, friendships are formed with a group of girls that do not have a clear sincere dream they wished to pursue. The comedy and music value are exceptional, combining it with the well thought-out lines and cuteness of the characters, there is nothing short of a breathtaking experience. Every genre has haters and a show like this should be embraced for what it is without the need of being too fussy. Not only does 'K-ON!' and 'Lucky Star' give out an easy going vibe, they also cast a sense of warmth into the hearts of those who appreciate it. Overall, this is the typical case of what you see is what you get.
They're both a slice of life anime with 4 cute girls and are made by Kyoto Animation.
It's humorous, sweet and beautiful look, as Lucky Star.
Randomness all over the place xD Lucky Star is better though.
Made by the same studio, both have very similar type of humor, both are about a group of girls in high school and both are moe
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if the charcters from lucky star all of a sudden created a rock band? well here you go. you can even see the characteristics of each of the characters being almost he same. The seiyu are different and not as well know but they are all rising starts in the anime business.
K-ON and Lucky Star are very similar in many ways.
Firstly: the characters are similar. Examples: Mugi and Miyuki are similar because both are rich; Konata and Ritsu are similar because both are crazy; Kagami and Mio are somewhat similar because they try to control the crazy ones; Yui and Tsukasa are similar because they both forget things, sometimes important things.
Secondly: In both anime, The story is revolved around 4 girls. In Lucky Star: Konata, Miyuki, Tsukasa, and Kagami. In K-ON: Mio, Mugi, Yui, and Ritsu. There are also teachers involved and other girls.
Thirdly: In both anime, the theme is comedy and school, however K-ON is music and Lucky Star is slice of life.
That concludes my recommendation.
K-ON and Lucky Star are both slice of life moe comedies that mainly take place in school. The characters are extremely similar, for example:
Moe and funny what more do you need in any show. Both shows are lighthearted and fun to watch.
The story centers around four high-school girls who go about their daily lives, with various themes at the center. K-ON! is very similar to Lucky Star, but replace the 2ch references and otaku culture with music.
Lucky Star and K-ON! Has Similar characters, not by looks but by attitudes as well. It doesn't have the same storylines. But if you watch Lucky Star or the latter, you will feel the same atmosphere in both animes. They are produced by Kyoto Animation as well, giving you the same amount of humor, Lucky Star brought us.
They have a simple plot and they are really random. They focus on high school girls and their teachers; even the lead characters are similar.
(Kagami - Mio
Konata - Ritsu
Tsukasa - Yui
Miyuki - Tsumugi)
K-ON is pretty much Lucky Star with musical instruments. Both are made by the same company. If you liked Lucky star you will like K-ON also. (Judging by the 1st 3 episodes only)
K-ON! and Lucky Star are both easy-going, slice-of-life anime that have practically matching character personalities. K-ON has a hint of a story-line, but ends up with the pointless and random almost every episode, just like Lucky Star. If you loved one, there is no way you'll not love the other.
K-on is simply LS ripped off. Devoid of all its simple charm and pros. If you have to eat sweets at least choose these that won't make your stomach ache.
There are four main female characters (until Azu-nyan came on later in the series of K-On!) and very few male side characters for both anime. Some of them have similar traits too: Yuki-chan (Lucky Star) is prim and proper like Mugi-chan and Yui is somewhat an airhead like Tsukasa. The girls in both anime are energetic, happy, cute and random. Both anime are in the comedy genre.
They're both fairly random anime about a group of four high-school girls going about their everyday life and having fun together. :)
both are EXTREMELY hilarious!!! just girls hanging out, talkin about stuff and doing things that makes you laugh!! the characters are very similar...
the teachers who hangs around with them have the same personality as well, the 4 main characters treats them as if they're the same age....
Sawako- Nanako (they're also teachers who doesn't have any boyfriend so they have nothing else to do xD)
If you liked Lucky Star, you'll definitely love K-On!
The characters are all loveable, and its comedic aspects and slice of life genre will definitely appeal to all viewers :)
K-on! is just like Lucky Star in so many ways. Even though the plots are different, the main characters have a lot of the same personalities and traits and it centers around their school life. It is also just as funny as Lucky Star =P.
Lucky Star and K-ON! are just the same. They are comedy series about a group of girls having fun and enjoying their lives. Both are slice of lives, and very enjoyable. Also, the characters are kinda the same. So, if you liked one of these two, just watch the other one, and you'll know what I mean.
They are pretty similar in how they both function, I can't say "If you like Lucky Star you will definitely like K-ON" but I can say you should give K-ON a try.
Both have the school girls and the funny moments without any real drama and tons of humour about their everyday lives.
They are both moe slice of life anime about school girls.
-Group of school girls going through high school.
-Group of friends.
-Lot's of cuteness.
-Similiraty in the cute scenes.
Note: K-On! is also about a music band.
High school, friendship, randomness, you'll love this anime serie.
In the both shows there are 4 moe girls with similar personalities.
this is moe too. but k-on! is better but this is ok too
They both don't have a strong and solid plot, which means there's a lot of scenes that are fillers but are actually very funny. I thought I'd never find another anime like Lucky Star but then I found K-ON :) They're both wonderful
School girls enjoying life, however I feel that K-On had a little bit more structure as opposed to Lucky☆Star. Nonetheless, I think if you enjoyed one you'll probably enjoy the other.
Characters are incredibly similar:
Yui, Tsukasa, they have cute, and silly tendencies.
Mio, Kagami, they are both the ones that more or less keep things in order, but both have lapses in that attitude from time to time.
Tsumugi, Miyuki, they are rich girls, kinda ditsy and super cute in the same ways.
Ritsu, Konata, they are both hyper-active and often come up with crazy ideas.
Main characters are girls and the series revolves around them getting through highschool.
Daily lives of a group of girls and great art too.
Both series are relaxing slice of life shows which feature good friends going through high school and enjoying themselves (with loads of cuteness and fantastic humor).
Both have strong and funny female characters who you get attached to as the series progresses. When both animes end, you feel as if you've graduated with all of them. Boh animes keep you laughing until the credits, and many of the characters are extremely similar.
Both have cute group of friends who live a daily normal life at school. Genre is slice of life for both and there isn't a concrete story but just their talks of a daily japanese school student who wear cute uniforms and like to discuss about cakes and sweets! Both are really kawaii!
Both have a quirky sense of humor and don't have much of a plot or continuous conflict that builds through out the story. Both share the Slice of Life genre and usually take place in a school environment.
Both Animes present a more or less carefree High-School life, while focusing on the comedic aspects. Drama, Tragedy and Sadness are not present. Furthermore, the protagonists are quite similiar: Both have a textbook airhead, a Tsundere and a rich, well-mannered girl, who sometimes fails to keep in touch with reality.
Moe, moe and more moe!!
Both are slice of life/comedy shows which have a four girl main cast.
If you like watching girls doing cute things and having a laugh then either is worth a watch.
Both are simple, slice of life anime that have a group of girls with similar personalities. They are both easy to watch and perfect for anybody looking for something slow paced.
Watch them if you're into moeblob, or simply a KyoAni fan, definitely DON'T watch these if you've recently begun to watch anime because you'll end up hating it!
It has a similar basic premise of four young girl friends in school. Both feature a lot of slice-of-life comedy and cute characters.
If you like the Moe genre with shows like K-ON! then check out Lucky Star which basically started the Moe genre.
They have similar casts and the quirky humor is still there. Both are also slice-of-life (like) anime.
You've got to watch Haruhi before you watch Lucky star. There's just too many references in Lucky star you wouldnt get if you hadnt watched Haruhi. Plus theres Seiyuu and same animation company Kyoani.
There's a lot of Haruhi refences in this anime, Konata (the main role) is an otaku, and is also a fan of the Suzumiya Haruhi anime.
Also, she dresses like her in one episode, and share some of the voice actors.
Both anime are funny.
It is pretty much a prerequisite if you want to get a lot of enjoyment out of the series. Otherwise, these jokes will be lost. Watching other KyoAni titles would help, but not really necessary.
Just like another of my recommendations. These 2 differs.. But the concept might be the same, It's what you can call slice of life. And both are very random. The two anime's is also linked in a way. So if you ever feel like watching [i]Lucky Star[/i], I highly recommend that you watch [i]The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya[/i] first. Since some Haruhi moments will appear in Lucky Star. Same goes for the voice actors/actresses.
Excluding the fact it's made from the same company, Kyoto Animation, in almost every episode there's a Suzumiya Haruhi parody as well as parodies from other anime. Most of the seiyuus from Haruhi are also in Lucky Star as well. Don't judge it by the 1st episode, it gets better!!!
they are both ironic in a way, and the dance for the opening (or ending?), is kind of similar, how they're both dancing with pom poms and cheerleading outfits (come to think of it, their outfits are similar also, just a different color) and how theres like 5 or so people dancing.
These are both a 'slice of life' anime. The main characters are a bit on the odd side, but still lovable. Both animes have a strange sense of humor. These are so similar that fans have made up the names "Konaharu" and "Izumasuzimiya". In Lucky Star, many references of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya are made.
Both shows are pretty random but are so funny. Also Lucky Star plays of TMOHS because one of the main characters, Konata, loves Haruhi and cosplays as her in a cosplay cafe.
Both animes are produced by KyoAni. Lucky Star has a lot of Haruhi references in it, so some of those might make sense if you watch Haruhi. Also, the main main character (Konata for Lucky Star and Haruhi for Haruhi) are both voiced by the same person. They both take place at school, too.
hmmm well lets see lucky star takes some scenes from the melancholy of haruhi suzumiya and its so funny its a must see if you like it and also stupidity makes it more enjoyable and puts a smile on your face ^^
Both Lucky Star and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya have slice of life school comedy elements to them. Lucky Star has tons of references to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, which will be really funny if you've seen the show.
Haruhi and Konata has the same seiyuus, both have random comical scenes, both are random, and Itsuki and Daisuke (Daisuke comes in Lucky Star episode 20) has the same seiyuus too.
has many references and made by the same team
There are lots of references to TMOHS, as well as other shows. Both are centered around a group of friends in high school with random, loose, hilarious storylines. Plus, both are basically from the same creators.
Lucky Star also has comedic performances on the scale of Haruhi, although quite a different kind. Lucky Star is more laid back and less serious but has a similar style which will please fans of either series
They are sister series, and if you watch Lucky Star after Haruhi's Series, then a significantly greater percentage of its jokes will be gotten.
Its comitic value,and you can relate to the characters of both anime
Not too many similarities outside of certain parodies and the amount of references in Haruhi, but admit it, they both have the exact same fanbase so... =P
Well, Both anime have random plot which is full of humor. If you like TMHS you'll definitely like Lucky Star. One of the main characters in Lucky Star, Konata is an otaku hs student. You can see haruhi suzumiya whenever there is reference to anime in this series. The only difference is the way the characters are designed. But overall when you think of Lucky Star, TMHS comes to mind and vice-versa ^^
Haruhi and Konata are the same voice actors and both main characters are loud and random :)
In LS, the super-otaku worships a god. And that god is Haruhi Suzumiya in SHNY. There are also plenty of Haruhi references in LS episodes. Aya Hirano voiced Haruhi and Konata, while Minori Chihara voiced Yuki and Minami. Both feature fun dance routines. If you worship LS or SHNY, you should watch the other as well.
It uses a lot of the same cast--most obviously, Aya Hirano (Haruhi) is Konata, but everyone else from the brigade makes at least a cameo, sometimes more (For the dub, I know Wendee Lee is in both, but I haven't checked out the other actors). Lucky Star makes jokes about other anime, and a lot specifically about Haruhi Suzumiya. It's the same company, and has similar humor. Art is somewhat different, but still has some similarities.
The make alot of reffernces to this anime through out the series and it will help you understand a bit of the humour involved
Lucky Star makes a lot of references to Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu. The main chacter Konata even cosplays as Haruhi in one episode.
Lucky Star often refers to anime Haruhi, there are some episodes with characters from Haruhi anime, and what is interesting, Aya Hirano lead her voice to main character in both series.
Both anime offers something more than just crazy humor - Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu has some philosophical, psychological elements, while Lucky Star gives us interesting view on japanese pop-culture and japanese way of life.
Maybe this too series are not extremely similar, but generally both are great choice for everyone, who wants something more from anime, somthing "smart"
Lucky Star is an anime also created by the company who made the Haruhi Series. Any fans who enjoyed Haruhi would greatly appreciate the various references and themes it links to the series as well as it own twist on the slice of life genre. Featuring its own set of interesting a well developed characters, with the same amazing art style Kyoto Animation is known for.
Both in a high school setting, both including females with peculiar tastes, in both friends and recreational activities. Both with a popular musical number that includes a dance, and both are light-hearted enough that you can watch them without ripping your heart out.
It's like Haruhi but with more cuteness and less crazy events.
also all those Haruhi references.
Lucky star + Romance = Acchi Kocchi
Both series have the same style of history, a simple slice of life of some gakusei. The great diference on both are the main male characters, wich Lucky Star doesnt have.
If you liked one of theese you'll like other one too ! Almost the same sense of humor and simillar characters makes that in both shows you have almost the same feeling.
-Both contains School Life/ Slice of Life/Romance and is centered around comedy.
-Both animes are compiled of short stories, and are full 30 minute episodes.
Both the characters and the comedy is alike it's also the same kind laid back atmosphere.
It's also based and the school life of a close group of students who seem to care allot about each other.
The characters are similar...(ex..Miniwa, Tsumiki looks like Izumi, Konata) theare both enjoyable to watch..
They both have the same type of feel to the animes. however lucky star is more about just the life of 4 girls when acchi kocchi is about a group of friends and one of the girls, Tsumiki is in love with another guy in there group, Io. So acchi kocchi has more romance in it. They are both must watch animes!
Konata's appeareance + Kagami's character + unusual Nekomimi = Tsumiki
Just watch one episode and you'll feel like it's the same thing except for different characters.
I like to think of Acchi Kocchi as a more "themed" version of Lucky Star. They're both filled with the same super-moe, hyped up archetypes, and random skit (school life and other random activities) premise, but Acchi Kocchi has a much more vibrant style of animation with most of the randomness revolving around a sub-plot of romance. That being said, a lot of people will not enjoy either of these anime... You either love the Lucky Star/K-On slice of life genre or you don't. Personally, I found the "humour" in Acchi Kocchi to be more approachable than Lucky Star's, but I wouldn't consider either of these to be a full blown comedy series.
Same high school life, without the romance part. For me, konata and tsumiki look alike. Both have comedy part. Hime and Tsukusa is the same voice actress.
Similar art style and character types, both really cute!
-Art work is similar
-Main girl characters of LuckyStar and Acchi Kocchi are both short, long hair, reserved
Very similar characters (a few examples on this could be Hime from Acchi Kocchi and Tsukasa from Lucky Star or Konata from Lucky Star and Tsumiki from Acchi Kocchi), similar comedy. Lucky Star is pretty much Acchi Kocchi without the romance. The only difference is probably that Acchi Kocchi actually has a main male character, well, two, in it, while Lucky Star is just about all girls. Similar artwork.
Both shows are "moe blob" type shows with slice of life oriented comedy. The shows are based around the daily lives of the characters and interactions within the groups.
*both animes are cute, with moe characters
*both are funny comedies with a little bit slice of life
*both are about everyday life in high school
*in both characters doing similar things: eating, playing together, going to the festivals, etc.
*similar opening songs: singed by main seyuus
*similar characteristics of characters - they're cute, funny, intelligent,irritating or shy
*similar art: just cute
Tsumiki has a resemblance to Konata from Lucky Star and Hime to Tsukasa from the same series in both appearance and personality.
The major difference is that Acchi Kocchi is focused on romance.
-similar characters,specially the main character
-similar school of life/random episodes
-similar humor and crazy moments
Acchi Kocchi has romance in it
Chibi and comedy. These two anime are very cute and have a plot that aren't entirely about anything. Acchi Kocchi is more romance, and Lucky Star is more school life.
Acchi Kocchi is just Lucky Star with romance. The only real difference is that Acchi Kocchi has more male character while Lucky Star has more female characters.
-Both are Slice of Life
-Both are amusing comedies
-Both have the High School theme
-Tsukimi (Acchi Kocchi) reminds me of Konata (Lucky Star)
These two anime have similar art styles and characters, good humor, and are fun slice-of-life shows
Both are fun filled, full of comedy and daily lives of students. If you're looking for a laid back and enjoyable Anime like Lucky Star, give this a go.
Extremely similar type of comedy. They're both really cute and easy to watch, since they don't have any drama or actual action. The main difference is that Acchi Kocchi has some romance between the main characters, though that's more of a bonus.
First of all, the main character, Tsumiki Miniwa, looks almost exactly like Konata. This anime series is kind of like Lucky Star with a little romance in it. Amazing!
Slice of life, comedy. Minami-ke is probably better when it comes to comedy since the jokes are too obvious (the comedy in Lucky Star is related to anime and you need to have watched quite a lot to get all those). Oh yea, Lucky Star is much more slice of life than comedy (and vice versa with Minami-ke). In short, i enjoyed Minami-ke a bit more but they are both highly recommended if you are a fan of the genre .
Like watching some eventful daily life of average anime girls? These two titles are for you. One is very laid back with extreme reference to today's real life Japanese society and the other is done in chapters-styled episode involving random activities.
Both are slice-of-life, episodic comedies with mostly female characters (though minami-ke has more male characters).
They're both comedies and slice of life shows and they're both very random and funny. Lucky Star is a lot more 'laid back' though, while Minami-ke isn't as 'laid back'. Also, Lucky Star has several references to the Japanese culture and to several anime.
Both shows are outstanding slice-of-life shows that are highly entertaining. Good comedy...
Both these animes are just random & hilarious.
There isn't any plot for both of them but the story centres around daily conversations & interactions between the characters of the show.
Lucky Star already ended & IMO the most worthy anime to fill the place left by Lucky Star would be Minami-ke.
Hmmmmmm, Both Of These Shows Have The Same Insaness ^^
Both anime concentrates on a few girls' life. It's like watching the life of some random girls, only that it's not in real life. Both are funny and hilarious, and there's no plot for both of the anime.
The two anime are quite alike in spirit and humor. However, Lucky Star is more childish while Minami-ke is more mature even though it shares the same weird sense of humor that'll make you smirk to the very last moment of the series.
Both of these series are hilarious. One follows the daily life of three young sisters, the other follows the daily life of four high school girls and their friends. And there's no plot besides that XD Both are very random and fun to watch. Lucky Star does a lot of parodying of other anime and has a more slice if life aspect, but both series are still incredibly similar. I'm pretty sure if you enjoyed one, you'd enjoy the other XD
Both anime have no plot, because both are slice-of-life. The most important thing: they're hilarious
Slice of Life, Comedy, Minami-ke is a great and very funny anime with epic characters! great art style, very similar to Lucky Star because of its Comedy. ;D
There is showed a lot of interesting in the common people's way of life. Also they both are too funny ((;
It has no story line, each episode is as random as a lucky star episode.
Both shows feature of cast of girls finding amusement from everyday situations
Both are slice of life following the everyday lives of girls.
Both discuss the dailly lives of young group of girls
Well, both are slice-of-life stories that center simple day to day activities. Both are very entertaining and fun to watch.
They both portray the everyday life of girls They both are comedy's and they're both awesome
Absolutely no plot other than the main character's everyday lives.
Both of these anime are just to watch for something relaxing and for a good laugh,they feature multiple characters and have a soft artstyle and have a story mostly centred around a group of friends messing around. There's nothing extreme or serious going on and neither of these series take themselves seriously so both are good to watch when you just want to have a laugh.
-Both are slice of life
-Both have a school setting
-Awesome and likable characters as well as a variety of them too!
The daily lives of the girls activities, either it is moe, cute, or random funny moments. The story is slice of life comedy focusing on the girls activity, usually an all female cast doing something fun. Not much of a story, but you will find them a likable cast until the end of the show.
Lucky star, follows the daily lives of four high school students doing what they do best and basically a lot of popular culture. Minami-Ke follows the daily lives of three sisters who goes to different grade schools and often have a large cast.
Both are SOL, comedy and school genre, and both are funny as fuck. Both depict the daily school lives of girls (mainly high school) and the unique "evolution" that comes after that.
The way they use other anime reference hidden or revealed in each episode.
Both are School, Satire, Comedy making fun of Japanese culture. Lucky Star makes fun of the gaming and anime culture whilst Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei ridicules other psychological and social issues. ^_^
Although the humor is much darker in SZS, prepare for cute girls and EXTREME RANDOMNESS in both :]
Both share the genres of parody, school, and slice of life. There is no real story in either and filled with randomness. There is an evidence of uniqueness in both.
Both refer to otaku's culture.
Both anime feature strange and funny school girls, and both have a lot of cameo from other anime.
Great humour which, unfortunately, is brought only to the chosen ones, who have watched either Lucky Star, or Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. Both shows take place mainly in the school grounds and have many similarities in the use of jokes. Also, the characters in both anime are strange and are not the typical ones you can expect from the average school related series. While Konata in Lucky Star is presented as a hardcore otaku with questionable morals, Itoshiki Nozomu from Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei has somehow weird understanding of very much ordinary things. Well, one's for sure - you won't get bored while watching either os these series!
totally random with plenty of references and parodies
Anime/manga references hidden (or popping out in your face) in each episode, but SZS has a more darker art style. Most of their characters are females, and they're both funny. Both series also center their plot around high school students, including teachers and other side characters. Oh, and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei sometimes add a little dark comedy in the mix.
Both are slice of life comedies that parody a lot of other animes, and there are even a few Lucky Star parodies in Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.
Both seem to point out the small things in life that tend to become our habits without even noticing. Also, both have a cast of mostly girls who are quite stereotypical.
Both anime share the same style but sayonara zetsubou sensei uses a darker style of humor, both are extremely random and dosent follow a specific storyline, and both uses various parody about japanese culture.
while lucky star maybe less crazy than sayonara zetsubou sensei, they are still both very funny and revolve around school
