Well, this was disappointing.

I tried liking this. My hopes were up with that it was a spinoff of Lucky Star, but those positive thoughts were dashed swiftly.

Being about the families struggles to maintain any money for food, with an otaku shopper, you think it would be a fun few minutes, but the overuse of similar jokes over and over again drew thin, and eventually it became a chore to finish. Also, the ED joke was funny to begin with, but wore down as all the jokes did. Though the ED was a nice tune.

Since it was a Lucky Star spinoff, you would expect a cameo, read more

"It's 9 p.m. on Monday! Everyone assemble!!!"

"Miyakawa-ke no Kuufuku" details the struggles of the Miyakawa sisters as they battle one of history's most famous, most heart wrenching social problems: poverty. Cruel, heartless poverty. The sisters Hinata and Hikage live a life filled with unflattering things, like tofu substituted meat, skim milk, skim milk, and convenience store dinners. This show is a glimpse at sections of their life, filling the viewers with a sense of overwhelming pity.

For Hikage, the younger sister, she is an endearing elementary school student who puts up with her sister's wasteful spending, using precious dollars on unneeded things like light read more

Miyakawa-ke no Kuufuku is a nice little side-story for Lucky Star fans. It's not the season two that many have been hoping for—though, the OP would suggest otherwise—but there's no reason you wouldn't enjoy it if you enjoyed Lucky Star.

Despite not still being produced by KyoAni, Miyakawa-ke retains the overall feel of Lucky Star, most likely due to the number of returning staff members: Yamamoto Yutaka is the director, having previously directed the first four episodes of Lucky Star, of which he did a fine job, episode one's infamous first half notwithstanding. Rest assured, you won't be sitting through five minutes of meandering food discussions read more

Now while I have not finished Lucky Star yet due to not finding the dub of the final episodes on Youtube,I rather like it. It may not have a story but its funny and it has quirky and cute characters. But this "spin off " is the opposite. So lll explain in a mini view!

Story ~3
It had potential to be something giving the idea but it really waste it. Its not dull but annoying. The comedy feels force and the situations take a stretch. In other words its 30 minutes of annoying crap.

Everyone minus the main 2 here and characters from the main show Lucky read more
