Great episode and anime indeed. I really liked that they showed the whole dance (though I saw it before), too bad it wasn't the real performance with the audience. That damn song is so catchy >_<
From start to finish the strongest point of this anime were the admirable characters and the dialogues about different things in the world with each unique character giving in their own style/personality/flavor into the conversation. Konata was just pure win with her being a cute otaku, with Kagami and Tsukasa as 2nd and 3rd :)
However, in my opinion, the characters were also the same reason why I took away some points from the final score. Why? Because I also didn't like a lot of the other characters. Starting with Miyuki, she was likeable, but I felt that the other 3 main characters would have been enough. She was just not that fun to watch :/
Most of the minor characters were also meh, with the exceptions of Yu, Konata's dad and the 2 Lucky Channel hosts (These two were just awesome btw :D). The minor characters were often boring so I didn't like the second half of the anime as much as the first one. I also missed the old endings with the main girls singing anime songs and such (Konata's Dragon Ball was epic win). Shiraishi was fun sometimes, but a little too much after a while.
Also, I don't know who the seiyuu was of a lot of very minor characters (background characters, the tourist guide, shop assistant etc...), but god I hate her/his (I'm not even sure about the gender) voice, it was extremely annoying >_>
Well considering everything I'm still gonna give this anime an 8/10. While it is not perfect it really was an admirable anime and it gave me a lot of fun time. It was pretty much the definition of the word 'slice of life'. The references of the many different anime was what made me like it so much, it was a parody of the world of anime itself :)
Might rewatch some time, though not in the near future.
Now onto the OVA!
Hmm the last two episode were very good, but all in all this series kinda disappointed me. My expectations were quite high at the beginning. Lucky Star is very popular and has a high rating here on MAL. I was expecting a very funny show, but I didn't have that many LOL's here. Sometimes 1 per episode, not that much.
Nichijou and Daily Lives of High School Boys, K-on are funnier in my opinion. Nevertheless this series was ok. The characters were cute and had nice personalities and I like the different personalities in this show.
All in all this show was decent, but I expected this to be funnier.
If only they showed the real dance instead of the rehearsal at the end I might've felt more emotionally satisfied. Shiraishi ending felt unnecessary here.
Best otaku-centric show I ever seen. Sad it's over
To reply to a lot of people, showing the actual successful performance at the end of a show has been done to death, while showing the practice gives it an original twist, and emphasizes the "have fun with your circle of friends" aspect which as been prominent throughout the series. I thought it was a great idea.
So it's over, which is sad. It was a 26 episode series that didn't felt long at all. Even with twice as more I'm not sure I would have been contented. Anyways, OVA... Hoping for another season, but who knows...
Just rewatched this recently for the first time in nearly 2 years . Didn't notice all the Haruhi references the first time but in my defense I hadn't seen Haruhi at the point. Anyway enjoyable series, the anime version of Seinfeld.
Which leads to the final term worthily series, episode after episode I witnessed steady growth and solid that made me regret the end of the series. Few souls have been able to have an enviable positive trend from the beginning to the end! In the light of the new series began last month, we can also understand the brief appearance of the characters of Hinata Miyakawa and Hikage! I always hope for a sequel to the series. All the characters in the cast, in their own way have all been exceptional in today's episode Patty-chan was fun!
whew I'm glad I gave this a chance.. it started really boring but episode 5 onwards were pure gold! I can't believe I'm sad that this is only 24 episode seeing how I procrastinated watching this due to the trauma episode 1 inflicted on me.
I sort of understand now why most people would say this is the funniest anime they've ever watched.. well it's not THE funniest for me (Nichijou and Seto no Hanayome are unbeatable for me) but it's definitely funny and very enjoyable.. the last few episodes really bumped this series to a 9
Finally finished! It was a hassle to watch some of those first episodes, but it did gradually get better after a while. Characters started growing on me and I begin to just enjoy watching their daily lives, jokes, and silliness.
All the references were really funny. Some scenes were done very nice, and even got a bit emotional during the scene when Konata's mother "visited" them. Could have been better for me but def. didn't regret watching or anything.
I feel more good for having finished Lucky☆Star than sad that it ended. I remember first being introduced to it at a friend's place, but had no idea what it was about, so I found it boring. Few years ago, I tried to watch it again, but never made past the fifth episode. This month, I decided to try again, and I managed to stick with it. So that's why I feel pretty good right about now.
For a popular series, I thought it was good, but it's not something I'd watch over and over whenever I get the chance. I felt more connected to Azumanga Daioh than this. Doesn't mean I regret watching, however, I guess the hype made it seem more awesome than it really is.
The OP will never leave my head, though, that's for sure.
I didn't realize how much I liked this show until this episode came along. They even teased us with 2 new characters, I need at least another season of this.
Without the Lucky Channel segments, it may have been an 8/10.
In the world of anime, when you watch a show like this, you can always expect something to try to make it stand out, whether it's over-the-top comedy, some supernatural element or a cliché romance and that is where Lucky Star truly stands out. There is none of that, it's simple, sweet and not too special yet it somehow has a unique feel to it and that is what's great about it, I finally got around to watching this and I can say that I enjoyed this anime, it's simply a show about nothing that is still entertaining. 8/10
What a golden way to wrap up the show. The cheerleading routine was great but my favorite part had to be with Akira and Minoru. Akira's growl when she was told to go join the demon council was hilarious, her rage was unrivaled this episode. I thought they might have finished with their graduation but I'm content with this as well. It helps to reinforce the idea that the time they have left as high schoolers is limited and that they plan to make the most out of every bit of it.
I am so glad I finally got to this. Ever since I was first exposed to it by the rabid weeaboos who worshiped otaku culture in high school, Lucky Star became a wall that I was destined to climb. I've literally been debating whether or not to watch this for a couple of years now because of that experience but now that I've finished it, all of those negative feelings I harbored towards it have been expelled. I have to laugh a bit when I compare my response to episode 1 to this one. A complete 180 and Lucky Star delivered.
Overall it was able to deliver the standard fare of CGDCT as well as KyoAni's usual touch. It reminds me a great deal of A-Channel which no doubt was likely influenced by this. There were lots of comedy gold moments and even some surprisingly heartfelt scenes such as this final episode and the scene with Konata's mother. I wasn't as big a fan of the pop culture humor, although it didn't detract from the show either. The characters were all fun and Kagami is easily my favorite for being the pragmatic tsundere.
