Lucky star is one of those unique Comedy anime that comes very rarely.
It manages to put a comedic twist to normal everyday occurances, and
many pop culutre references. The entire show is not your typical slice
of life high school comedy anime, rather its show structure follows
more of a western style of comedy, a sitcom to be exact. Instead of
having a direct storyline, like most anime viewers are used to, it
focuses more of everyday observations and Jpop culture as their source
---Theres always a storyline no matter how broad it is. Many ppl say theres no story line but,
there has to be a "story" of sorts or else this stuff cant be funny. If
you had to put a plot to this show it would "A group of high school
children trying to make it all the way through high school." With such
a broad plot, the creators can do as they please. By the way, that is
how most western sitcoms can list 5-10 seasons without it getting old
(i.e. Simpsons, Family Guy, Cheers, etc.) Mind you thats the only
connection this show has with a western sitcom.
---I have noticed many people bash the begging episodes of the show but
i found them equally entertaining as the rest of them. It really
depends on what the viewer does in their own daily lives is what truly
makes this show funny. Somone who doesnt eat curry/rice or grilled meat
sticks for dinner with their family wont understand a joke about it.
But with all the jokes and references in this show you're bound to
laugh out loud at all they throw at you! They've thoguht of everything
for this show.
---Art and animation of the show is your typical comedy anime fair.
Simple characters simple backgrounds simple static objects. But they
manage to take "simple" to a whole different level. For example, the
characters are only shown from the waist up for about 80% of the entire
show. But the characters are drawn very simplistic and the coloring for
each looks like it doesnt exeed 12 different colors for each person for
the most part. But they are definitely drawn in a cute manner, if thats
your thing. The simple-ness is what gives the show its charm too. The
art style is so popular and easy to draw im sure you'll find spoofs for
dozens of other non related characters around the internet.
---The Sound is your standard comedy sound efects from light hearted
piano songs, to bing bangs and bongs, they're all there and accounted
for. Music is mostly absent from the show aside from helping out
---You will definitely notice the lack of background music in the show
but with such a powerful seiyu cast, one could understand that they
didnt want to distract from the well executed voice acting. Of course
most people will notice Aya Hirano and maybe even Minori Chihara. Its
hard to believe that most of the main characters are voiced by
relatively newcomers. Which also helps seperate Lucky Star from
sounding the same as all the other school anime out there. You'll enjoy
Kagami's singing voice by the way.
With the uniqe sound comes the "unique" (or not so unique) character
types associated with each seiyu. Theres also ALOT more characters but
you'll have to watch it to see them all ^_^ Speaking of characters
you'll actually end up seeing all of them fairly regurlarly. Either
supporting cast or main cast. By the end of the show, you'll get the
feeling that not one person recieved more time than another. Even the
extra characters get more than enough airtime to fully acknowledge them
as essential parts of the anime.
---The enjoyment factor is through the roof in my opinion. The comedy
aspect of this show covers so many angles and hits so many things
perfectly its hard not to give a perfect score. I find it very hard for
somone to hate this anime. That is, if you dont like japanese pop
cultre, anime references and funny common occurences. If youre that
type then why are you watching anime? ^_^
---Also, if you dont like western style sitcoms where the end of every
episode will always leave the same way they started, this is definitely
not for you. If youre looking for a romantic comedy or bloody action
school go somewhere else. If you're willing to give up about 20 minutes
of your time for pure entertainment, WATCH THIS SHOW!
