<strong>THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.</strong><br />----------------------------------------
<br /><br />Another week, another good episode. It was nice to see all the other characters get some screentime. I just loved how Patrcia's 3 holy places were all otaku areas. The the Otome Road segmant was just hilarious. I was surprised to see that our very own Konata avoided the moe question. Anyways, next episode looks fun as usual, looking forward to it.

Whee, Kagami ate Pocky again in this episode. I love Misao's voice. And the 3-second rule! Konata is the leader of all otakus - we all taking notes from her. Moar Iwasaki scene - it's cute to see that Yu-chan is the one friend closest to her. The Tamura scene in her room is hilarious, lol. And Shiraishi's song in the end is very good. ( ^^)b

Another lay back episode and very enjoyable as always!

FMP reference was pretty funny, though my favourite part of this episode have to be Misao and her 3 sec rule

I'm still impressed by how likable all these new characters are. It's a shame there's only some six episodes left. And Patricia Martin's voice is too good =P

This show really does keep getting better (although last week's Lucky Channel wasn't topped, and probably never will be!)

I liked getting a look at some new characters, and this lot sure are interesting.

The EDs are hilarious >.<

For the win! :D

Was a good episode, loved it how Konata went to Yu-chan's class just to show off she's a third-year. xD

Thx Kina.

Yay, major screen time for the other characters. They were all great in their own ways. Most surprsingly, Patricia is an otaku. Very cool! New word: fujoshi.

Ayano didn't say too much...

Hiyori's hobby of drawing her friends in perverted ways was hilarious. Getting crushed by Minami's ball was hysterical.

They have the three second rule in Japan, too! Of course, I don't blame Misao for the meatball... I wouldn't normally eat meat that has fallen on the ground either.

And Konata, Kagami, and Tsukasa discussed a bit about the meaning of the word moe. Lucky Star is full of moe characters!

Yay for the new characters, they're making it more lively.

Especially that girl, I think her name is Tamura, her little perverted pictures of Iwasaki and Yukata! LOL That made me laugh.

Ahhh so they also have the three second rule eh? Hehe.

Poor Tsukasa, she wanted a puppy and Kagami just dashed her dreams away!

It's odd that they're introducing new characters this late in the show, I hope that they explore their personalities more in the up coming episodes.

Those LS-characters-as-animals pictures were used on the first pages of some of the manga episodes.

Heh, tracking media preferences by aspiration. "Hmm, a lawyer? I must've been into the Ace Attorney series... Detective? Conan."

Oh, my optical receptors catch enough light, it's just that the focus doesn't work all that well.

I've read that one definition of "moe" is that it is a quality, usually visual, that draws out a paternal or fraternal instinct, making you feel like you want to protect its possessor. I don't know if the one who said that was a particularly hardcore otaku, but I suppose I'm comfortable with that definition. (I still wouldn't generally use it, given how it's probably used.)


Kagami's so cute when she's waiting while Konata reads. ^_^

If you know that, and considering your dad, you definitely want an umbrella. (I'll probably regret it if I look up "wet sailor fuku contest", but I can imagine those being popular.)

I suppose Akira's adorably worried expression in Konata's imagination helps; if she were in scary-angry mode, I think it would completely nullify any moe effects for me... until she put up a cute expression again.

Good thing she didn't forget it when Kagami did, huh? :D

I suppose there are rules about how to follow the text in a newspaper, but once you learn them, it shouldn't be that hard. I mean, I can read manga even when it's not yonkoma (e.g. Ichigo Mashimaro, most of Yotsuba&!, and the deluxe stories in Azumanga Daioh) because IchiMash told me where to start and how to proceed in an example page in the back. (Which page to start with wasn't a problem because the front covers look like front covers.)

Ehh... I rarely like the sub's English better than the dub's, but she worked the fact that she's a senior into her request better in the subtitle. I suppose it's a timing thing with the animation.

Hey, it's like how Chiyo keeps from being pegged. She's so small and cute that no one wants to hit her. (Especially in Yutaka's case, since she's not all that healthy; see Minami's analysis. I can imagine someone on her side jumping in the way to keep her from getting hit if someone tried it.)

Hiyori's fair game, though!

Patty has an odd idea of sacred places. I wonder if she'd visit the Lucky Star museum...

Fukuhara Kaori keeps showing up in these. Not that I'm complaining.

Ok episode... liked meeting all the new characters.. although it is sooo late in the series~ I'm suprised they are JUST getting to them now.

Either way, I anticipate great hijinks.

I wonder if the reason they're giving more and more screen time to the new characters is to draw the circle? What I mean to say is that our cast is getting ready to graduate and be replaced by the new characters, so that it sort of feels cyclical? Wow, I am over-analyzing this, lol! I love how this anime makes me think "OMG, me too!" at least once every episode. It's like the writer is reading some of my thoughts.

Wasn't that impressed with the new characters. They seem like carbon copies of characters from a few other anime.

If it was good, what's with the ":|"? :P Episode was fine (GOD I NEED TO STOP DRAWING MY FRIENDS LIKE THIS, I'M SUCH A PERVERT :D), but hell... Patricia's voice almost made my ears bleed, but it's still better than this MJ-like voice that other adult women have...

And I especially loved to see Konata avoid the moe question. Everyone avoids the moe question xD It's just too hard to define.

Maybe. Or maybe not! See the manga for what I mean. :)

I really liked this episode. It was nice seeing the side characters in their own little groups.
Misao's great, I love her Japanese voice.
Iwasaki is as cute and awesome as ever (Pat pat, lol :p). And the glasses girl who draws weird pics of her friends is also cute and awesome.

Somehow I don't really care much about the new characters. The main four and maybe some minor characters like Yu should have been more than enough :/ The endings (apart from the one with the opening theme parody) are worse as well. None of them can beat Konata's Dragon Ball karaoke :D

Lol it's true. I waste sooo much money on my hobbies, but I'm stingy about spending money on anything else. XD

Lol fujoshi. Still prefer Konata though.

Another good test of our pretty girls in Saitama! Formidable thing and always being able to put in field references to events that fill our daily lives! Funny then totally abandons bet even the new recruits, are able to compensate for the lack of group Konata ! Poor Minami, as a good Pettanko, every reference drawing to a breast! Cute reference to arguments regarding the otaku and fujoshi!

This had a lot of good moments.

The animal personality talk was a highlight, as was the dodgeball game.

It's nice that the other girls got some screentime, it's interesting that they we slow phasing them in.
