Lucky Star's story portrays the lives of several school girls attending a Japanese high school with a very loose humor tone. The setting is based on the town Kasukabe in Saitama Prefecture. The main heroine is Konata Izumi, an athletic and intelligent girl who, despite these attributes, is not in a sports club, and has low grades. Her laziness at school is due to her love for anime and video games and lack of interest in anything else. The serialization began with the four main characters in their first year of high school: Konata Izumi, Kagami Hiiragi, Tsukasa Hiiragi, and Miyuki Takara. As the story progresses, they move onto their second and third year.

The anime follows the manga pretty closely, though those who complained about the infamous food episode (Episode one.) May be a bit happier. As it's a 4 panel manga, the chapters are pretty short, and it's pretty fun to, if nothing else, see the characters expressions.

Of course, if you are interested in this manga because a friend told you about it, they probably mentioned that it's a spice of life, so don't expect too much action.

And, if you liked Azumanga Daioh, and if you've seen some reasonably popular anime series (Haruhi, Fumoffu...) you might like this.

I started this manga expecting a book packed with stale, slow-paced humor and far too many references to count. The impression the anime gave me was nothing like this manga.

Story - 9
Lucky Star doesn't have a story, really. It follows the everyday life of four girls in high school. There are a lot of school-based comedy manga, but the way this one is executed is great. Each comic is four panels and they don't fail to deliver a relate-able slice of life.

Art - 8
While the art in this manga is fitting for the simplicity of it, it isn't the best. The characters are supposed to read more
