The “Lucky Star” OVA is made up of several short stories or chapters. A coherent plot or over spanning arc is hence not present, but this is not uncommon for “Lucky Star” and the different short stories ensure the OVA will have something enjoyable for everyone. From a slice of life story, to a full blown comedy or parody story to a heart warming tale, the OVA touches upon all of the types that were featured in the series.

Being all about Konata, Kagami, Tsukasa and Miyuki, it's a bit of a shame the other characters were featured less. Yutaka, Minami, Patricia and Tamura only read more

The Lucky Star OVA was very well done. It brings fans back to the series of lucky star and includes all the characters that you have gotten to know and love... excluding a few characters... Lucky Star generally never has a real story to it but the small episodes in it seemed to flow very nicely. Since there really is no true story, I had to rate the story as a 7/10. To people who are unfamiliar with Lucky Star, watching the OVA might make you confused because you don't know what is going on. However, if you watched the series then the OVA should read more

For an OVA that is suppose to be for Lucky Star... it wasn't very good.

The ova consists of a couple of mini-episodes that were suppose to be for the amusement of fans. Where was that amusement, might I ask.

The first story that began had more to do with the dog than with the characters themselves. Basically, it was more of the dog sleeping, with a few glimpses and actions from the characters. Not the best to start out with. Shortly after, we have an RPG game.. and though it is nice to see some 3-D type action.. it was rather annoying that all they read more

Anime OVA review No.1

(Warning!!! Negative Subjective Review! Bombardment zone Incoming!please precede with caution!)

Lucky Star is a joke and I don’t mean a good one, for I really mean it in a negative way. It’s popularity and ranking is also a bad joke especially here in MAL.

First Impression as a young lad:
The first time I watch Lucky star is in our local television and it is dub and filtered so the local’s like me can understand and I was kid back then that have some interest in anime but when I watch Lucky Star oh it receive the award of one of my first read more

Anime: Azumanga Web Daioh
Both are short little side stories to a school girl anime. Obviously, different ones or else these would be related series.

Anime: Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yuuutsu
As Haruhi is recommended from the main Lucky Star I feel that The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya - ONA should be recommended from the Lucky Star OVA.
The latter is roughly 5 minutes per episode, but differs, and most important of all, it is absolutely HILARIOUS, in my opinion it is far superior to the second season.
