When eating a chocolate cornet, which end do you begin with, the top or the bottom? Which side is the top and which is the bottom? For that matter, what is a chocolate cornet? The proper way to eat pastries is only one of the many everyday occurrences explored by the girls of Ms. Kuroi's class.

Meet Konata, an athletic and intelligent girl too dedicated to her favorite primetime anime to excel in anything but otaku culture; Miyuki, the cute, bespectacled living example of moe with an encyclopedic knowledge of all subjects; Kagami, the bitter-sweet, tough but shy straight-man to Konata's constant teasing and pranks; and her younger fraternal twin sister, Tsukasa, a kind but air-headed klutz. Witness this study in the human condition as our heroines explore the unexplored in questioning the ordinary!

Preliminary (25/? eps)
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.

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

Preliminary (20/? eps)
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.
